Pointless posts for people that want/need a 26" TV.

Not really though are they, so you want/need a 26" tv, don't get ripped off paying over the odds for one by buying one the same price as a 32", 40" or 42" tv.

Shop around and find one cheaper.

That's exactly why this is a hot deal, you can't get this decent 26" TV for any less and this deal has the 5yr warranty. 26" LCD TV's are always the same price as larger models (or more expensive) as they are a niche size. 22/23/24" computer screens with a freeview tuner bolted on are always available cheaply but not 26".

Can you not understand that some people do not want a huge TV?

This is a good price for a 26" Panasonic TV.

No point in comparing it with other sizes.

Why can't some people understand that not everyone wants a Teknika 26" for £140 !!!

Some of us want good brand quality in small sizes and this sort of deal IS good. Small LCD's are either cheap and cheerful or you have to pay for a Sony/Panasonic who only sell relatively small amounts of these hence more costly compared to mass produced/sold 32" or bigger.

Parents just got one of these and very happy with it.....like I said, not everyone wants a cheap no name small LCD and a 5 year guarantee included. Sweet.

Looked interesting, but not 1080p, so not for me...

Heat added - good deal on a decent known brand tv of this size. Makes an ideal sized tv for the bedroom.

As if it makes any difference on a 26" TV, you would need to sit with your nose on the screen to see any difference.

Shame can't vote users opinions cold, you need to use your brain before hitting submit, you can get a 50" for £399 but some perhaps would rather a quality small screen, long warranty and a reasonable size screen

and not everyone wants a TV to dominate a small room or they just not have the space.

speculatrix

idiot, or troll



both

Good deal, this was arond £350 not too long ago.

didn't have to wait long for an idiotic comment. I dont want a 32" TV in my bedroom, I have a big TV in the lounge.

Anyway I bought this TV last year from Tesco for £240 and is well worth the money. I bought a cheapo UMC TV but the sound was really poor, the Panasonic's sound is very good.

Hot for me

what year was this TV released.

Good quality tv brand at a good price. Heat added

Surprised some of the fools on here, don't comment about small sized shoes on offer.

Like what's the point in getting size 5 when you can get a 12 for the same price!!

Bought this tv just before xmas from Dixons for £229.99 - great tv, a little bigger than I expected it to be but glad I got it - fantastic in the bedroom love it :-) I would recommend it

Bit of an exaggeration, if used as a bedroom or office TV its quite likely people will be sitting closer to it. Also this is the kind of size that could be useful as a monitor, therefore I'd personally rather have a 1080 set.

This seems to be a perennial comment since the articles based on the human eyes visual acuity surfaced. I don't really want to get into an argument about the flaws in those articles, but would point out even if you take them as fact, they only comment about the eyes ability to resolve a pixel. Downscaling from 1080i/p (the resolution of packaged and broadcast HD material) places you at the mercy of the scalar in the set. Personally I'd rather the screen displayed the material as broadcast and let my eye resolve whatever it can.

BTW I voted hot as its a very good price for a branded 26" set. I'm just becoming sick of the condescending responses to a perfectly reasonable point of view.

I have to admit I'm a bit of a fan of Panasonic products. I have a few of them and have never been disappointed.
Also John Lewis is a great retailer, 5yr. guarantee and free delivery.

Voted hot.

It shows 1080p as the input signal.

But it's downscaling it. The max resolution of this TV is 1366 x 768.

Still a good TV tho and if used as a TV only, the lack of 1080 display probably isn't a big deal.

could you post a link for this please?
could only find 32 inch one for this price not 42.

So buy a monitor, this is a television, not a monitor.

Wow you really are the font of all knowledge.

The difference between this and a monitor is? Is it not plausible that someone may want to use it as both either now or in the future? Is it not acceptable for someone to point out that in that case 1080p panel may be of more use?

And since its clear you insist on being hostile, I suggest you go and have your eyesight checked if you have to "sit with your nose on the screen to see any difference" between a 26" 1080 and WXGA panel.

Not at all, I was purely stating facts.

BTW, which UK Broadcaster actually broadcasts at 1080p?

Really, which facts were you stating? That you need to sit with your nose to a 26" panel to discern the difference between 1080p and 720p? Which facts preclude someone from using this as a monitor aswell?

Sky broadcast at 1080i/50. Providing your set can de-interlace correctly, for most movie content (originally 24fps) this is no different to a 1080p broadcast. For content which was originally shot at 1080p/50 or 60, a 1080p panel would still require no scaling. A 720p/WXGA panel on the other hand would have to downscale the material.

I believe all UK broadcast HD is 1080i/50 infact. The only place you're likely to encounter 720p HD material is online content.


(Caveat about BBC HD removed, since they also broadcast 1920x1080 now, according to their website).

So you see a difference then? Slight contradiction there.

You have all been sucked in by the silly numbers game that is mainly hype from the makers, the reality is, this TV is just fine for the overwhelming majority of buyers that just want a television of this size.

If you aren't bothered about the free John Lewis 5 year warranty, then Richer Sounds are selling these for £229.95 in store.

Or perhaps in an attempt to sound authoritative and clever you put down another posters point by making a stupid statement.

And now because we pulled you up on it and provided some reasoned argument you've labelled us suckers. Guess everyone else can decide.

Hope you found my response on broadcast HD helpful.

Good quality TV at a good price. Hot

Looks like out of stock as it says "email me when in stock"

Agree with above, don't get too sucked into the numbers game IF you're after a good all round little TV.... if you're likely to use as a PC monitor then perhaps get a monitor.

Back in stock now
