Very tempted by this, heard it's great picture quality and actually handles SD okay.

Had a few comments about viewing angle though .. any owners able to comment?

Ive got the 55" of this model, its very good in all aspects only issue i have had so far are the you tube app freezing occasionally, think i've had it around 8 weeks now and still blown away with the picture
Be careful buying panasonic. Remote viewing rarely works (if the TV has it) and I just discovered that ITV Hub is not available on them and catch up only allows 7 days in the past viewing, so you have to use ITV Hub on another device and share the screen to the Panasonic. I THINK it is because ITV have sold everyone down the river and done a deal with Samsung. Also noticed that you cannot view BBC programs using remote viewing if you are abroad. One has to wonder about the licensing and mentality of these money-grabbers.

As mentioned above and in post. Deal was expired but now back on. Have checked with Hughes regarding the Rakuten deal and this does not come with a 5 year Warranty as this does. Richer Sounds are in store only and are ex-demo / returns.

Forgot to mention - If you have a card linked to your Quidco account then if you purchase this in store you are entitled to another 4% off - making the price £734!
Why is this not hotter ?

I've been looking at this model vs the Sony KD49X8005CBU deals available

Isn't the Panasonic a better quality panel?
As long as your local has stock, you can get this from Richer Sounds for £749 with a 6 year guarantee

You may be lucky, sounds like they have only demo models available now 'Last few in selected stores, some may be ex-display, ex-repair or missing accessories".

Can get a refurbished Panasonic for 600 so that would only be a bit more

Cant decide which to get, Cant see any proper reviews for the Sony

the panasonic's stand would overhang my tv stand by 2cm
Got this from Rakuten for £691 + £40 in Superpoints = £651. Bargain for a top quality TV that used to cost £1799 only 10 months ago!!

The Sony x8509 is a closer competitor to the Panasonic.

Thinking of ordering a refurb panasonic for 600, Have you noticed any negative aspects on the Panasonic, do you think the tv would wobble if it over hanged the tv stand by 2cm could always get a wider stand at a later date

Yeah I thought it was one of Panasonic's higher end models, I'm leaning more towards the Panasonic at the moment, just wish I could find a review of the KD49X8005CBU

The x800 is called the x810 in the states. Like I said though, the x8509 is a closer competitor to the cx802.

​I returned a KD49X8005CBU to TESCO yesterday. 4k content was lovely, but image was a little washed out compared with the set it was replacing (5 year old Sony KDL-46HX803). It also didn't handle motion nowhere near as well (the marathon was a smeary mess, and I spent the whole time trying to tweak it to get around this). SD content looked pretty terrible, as it does on most 4k sets. Sound was also pants (then again it's a skinnier unit than my previous Sony). I can't speak for the x8509 though.

I'm ordering the Panasonic today, but not sure whether it's worth an extra £150 for new with 5 years warranty. I'm thinking it might be!

Can't vouch for Panasonic but parents brought a new Samsung. It developed a fault 13 months on. Samsung made the repair but it cost them £235 to put right, so a warranty would have been worth it in this case.

Would also be replacing a 2010 Sony lower end model KDL40EX403U

Think I'm going for the Panasonic, thinking refurb as I wasn't even looking at 4k tv's until I saw the Sony deal now I'm spending 600 quid on one, The feedback for that refurb 50CX802B is very positive and you still get a years warranty, With the amount tv's drop in price don't know if it would be worth the extra 150
Me too. 150 extra for new status and 5 year warranty is tempting me though.

Just bought the refurb 50CX802B from panasonic for 600, should get about £18 back in nectar points and a couple of quid topcashback

So seems like a decent deal to me
The question is ... which team will score the most in the euro's if I go through currys?

Possibly only £134 extra if you pay in store using the same card registered on Quidco (order on-line and select Pay in-Store) 4% Quidco = £25.

​I don't have a Hughes nearby unfortunately.
Well, I bought one (from Curry's though)
The screen is beautiful, but my particular telly seems to suffer from slight light bleed and clouding in the bottom left quadrant

How slight is it bad enough to return it

Hope mines okay

Seen a few people on avforums complain of similar issues
I'm taking back in the next hour. If I don't, I'll notice it every time I turn it on.

Did you get it swapped over ? how does the panasonic compare to the KD49X8005CBU you returned to Tesco
I think I'm going to keep it. I was expecting too much from the panel, in the dark, with a high back light setting. Having used it again this evening, it's really not noticeable.

The TV is better in every regard (other than not having Android). The picture quality is (in my amateur opinion) stunning. Way more natural than the Sony, and it handles motion vastly better. The build quality also makes the Sony look and feel like a children's toy.

Happy with mine cant imagine the Sony been able to compete with it

I know what you mean now if you set the backlight setting too high in the dark it starts to show in the edges a bit, if you drop the backlight setting down it looks better. I think there all like that don't think your panel would be unique
