Nice TV. I'm after a new one for xmas, would anyone know of any reviews of this? (I've looked on Amazon and they all seem very postive).

How much without quidco? Still seems cheap for a Panasonic tv.

price needs to be put as £299, you are not allowed to put the price after quidco, as it is not guaranteed

can i use this as a monitor?

yes

BTW - Just researched the ethernet port, it can only be used for SW updates - There is no DLNA, which would have been the swinger for me! Still a good price, I guess?

I have a panasonic Viera that I bought a couple of years ago. Not impressed that it sometimes fails to turn on after pushing the button and even on standby sometimes will not turn on. Possibly a fault that has developed but I have Samsumg and LG tvs which are both much better in all aspects than this. Hope that helps.

Bought 1 of these from Amazon in the Black Friday deals for £249.99.
Very good.
Only fault I have found that I like is the EPG mini now and next. It does not show now & next at the same time its 1 or the other.
Small issue to deal with for the price though

There is a reson why some are sold as monitors, some as TV's.
You can use it as a monitor, but if you want crisp text, and your eyes fatigue easily, go for a good monitor.
I can't say I know why the image is not as good on TV's when used as monitors, but I did try and compared different models of TV's and they are not very good as monitors.
Right now typing in front of an LG M2450D Monitor-TV, but I can't say I am 100% satisfied with the image quality (text quality that is) when used as a monitor (otherwise an impressive piece of kit, can play MKV's from USB, excellent menu, freeview SD only).

The Panasonic would be a good deal for £249.99... I would wait for that price. If it was on Friday, it will be again probably.

Samsung and LG TV's don't touch Panasonic.

My Panny does exactly the same. I often have to power cycle it a few times before it fires up.

The three technologies are vastly different, particularly how each the screen is lit. In plasma HDTVs, the phosphors that create the image on the screen light up themselves, and don't need any backlighting. For LCD HDTVs, however, the liquid crystal screen does not illuminate, requiring a separate light source. That's where the difference between "regular" LCD screens (also known as CCFL-backlit LCD) and LED-backlit LCD screens (also known as LED-LCD, or just LED screens) come in. Traditional LCD HDTVs use cold cathode fluorescent lights (CCFLs) to illuminate the screen. CCFLs are similar to the fluorescent lights you might see in your lamps and overhead light fixtures. They use a charged gas to produce light. LED-LCD screens, like their name implies, use light emitting diodes (LEDs) to illuminate the display.

Several factors can be influenced by the type of HDTV display you choose. Among them, the most prominent are screen thickness, brightness, darkness, energy efficiency, and price. Ideally, you want an HDTV that's affordable, paper-thin, can get face-of-the-sun-bright and black-hole-dark, and consumes less than a watt. That's currently impossible, but LED-backlit LCD HDTVs can come closer than the other two technologies.

For this advantage, LED HDTVs command a premium; for all major HDTV manufacturers, LED-backlit HDTVs can cost a few hundred dollars more than CCFL-backlit HDTVs of the same size. Generally, plasma HDTVs tend to be the least expensive, priced at equal to or slightly less than CCFL-backlit HDTVs. However, that savings means the screen will be thicker and much more power-hungry, even if it does offer as good a picture as an LED-backlit HDTV. For example, Samsung's 46-inch CCFL-backlit LCD HDTVs begin at $799.99 (the 600 series), and can get as pricey as $1,699.99 (the 750 series). Samsung offers 50-inch 1080p plasma HDTVs (there are no 46-inch models currently available, and 52-inch CCFL-backlit LCDs start at $1,299.99 with the 530 series) for as little as $1,149.99 (the 540 series) and as much as $2,299.99 (the 8000 plasma series). For the extra size, that bump up in price is reasonable. Meanwhile, 46-inch Samsung LED HDTVs start at $1,199.99 (the 6050 LED series) and can become as expensive as $4,999.99 (the 9000 LED series). LED HDTVs don't have to be super-expensive, but they almost always cost more than their CCFL-backlit and plasma counterparts. Considering the excellent picture quality and significant benefits in screen thickness and power consumption, that extra amount on the price tag is well worth it.

So how do you know if a toshiba is made in turkey or not? As the TV I posted is here: richersounds.com/pro…801

Thanks for this. I have signed up for TCB to get this cashback. However, mine has only tracked at 1.5% so have submitted a missing transaction amount.

No probs. Not sure why it didn't track at 7.07%. Hopefully the missing transaction claim you have submitted will be successful
