The price then was £449 and I can't see this posted anywhere else. Seems like a good deal to me, especially with the World Cup about to start.

You'll enjoy a picture imbued with deep, rich colours, with 100Hz Double Scan technology incorporated so that fast-paced action is rendered with superb fluidity.

With a dual HDMI interface, you'll also be able to connect High Definition devices such as a Blu-ray player or game console to the Panasonic VIERA TX-P42C2-B 42" HD Ready Plasma TV to fully exploit its potential. A powerful audio performance is provided through the two 10W stereo speakers, ably assisted by V-Audio Surround sound technology.

A DVB-T Freeview TV tuner is integrated to provide you with a broad choice of digital television channels and radio stations, including all of your existing BBC and ITV favourites.

Other attractive features of this stylish VIERA TX-P42C2-B 42" HD Ready Plasma TV include 24p mode for viewing movies at their original frame rate, and the VIERA Image Viewer. The latter provides an SD card slot so you can view your JPEG photos and AVCHD or MPEG2 videos on the TV screen.

If you're seeking a high quality television with truly up-to-date features, the surprisingly affordable Panasonic VIERA TX-P42C2B 42" HD Ready Plasma TV is the right choice for you!

Currys and Dixons are the same company ( as are PC World ) so they will share bulk purchasing.

thought hd ready ment resolution of 1280 as a min 1024 isnt enough or am i getting it wrong ??

I'm currently in the market for a new television, and I know they've been doing the Samsung, LG and Panasonic 42" Plasma's at a cracking price, not sure whether to go for one of these or for an LCD instead...

HD Ready means 720p - 720 vertical lines,

So why cold?

Still a scorching price for a Panny plasma - bet the picture quality is still way better than entry level 1080p LCDs!

Why??; you obviously have never viewed a Panasonic HD ready plasma or understand the relevance of resolution

HOT HOT deal

Plus you get 3.5% cashback through Quidco making it even cheaper!

If I were you I would have it delivered; the box will be big and heavy and Plasma TVs should always be transported in the verticle. You have got yourself a good deal and IMO far superior to any LCD (I have both formats both manufactured by Pioneer)

What moaning in the red-bull deal? Why is that even relevant?

I posted an opinion.. a valid one too, 1024 x 768 is historic..

It's my opinion and I am allowed my own opinion.. so get over yourself, ffs.

Saying I'm jealous doesn't even make sense? Jealous of what?! :?

You obviously haven't done your research, some of the best rated HD TVs have had that resolution, even some of the pioneer kuros. i've got one myself and the image quality is just as good as a high end 1080p LCD

Don't vote cold if you don't like red bull - sniff sniff, or I'll cry over you daring to vote my deal cold on perceived irrelevancies.

Then you see a deal showing a price a fair bit cheaper for a product than previous and vote cold through ignorance & irrelevance to the deal in hand. Only relevant to show your true colours.

H&R added to the o/p - thanks for posting.

I would rather have this Panasonic 720p Plasma over my Samsung 1080P LCD any day.

Of course I would rather have a 1080p plasma but you can't have everything for £400.

this is a superb telly, we took delivery today after ordering thru the earlier posting when there was also a code you could use to reduce price to £421 plus possible quidco,

at £399 this has got to be one of the best postings for a quality plasma you are likely to see...

telly arrived yesterday and the picture on SD is really excellent - cant wait to see what its like on HD,

i have read alot of postings on tellys, lcd v plasma, 720 v 1080i/p etc, and from what i think have learnt from this forum and others is that the majority seem to believe that on quality 42" plasma like this you are going to see hardly any difference between 720 and 1080 and for the extra dosh a 1080p would cost its possibly not "worth" paying the extra for what you are going to gain,

the only thing that concerned me was there was a few negative comments about glare/reflections, which apparently is improved on later panny models, but this is not an issue we have noticed and i was only reminded about this when writing this feedback!

can recommend buying at this price, you wont regret it!

As the OP has clearly stated what resolution it is and its a good price, then I can't see any other reason to vote it cold other than its not the resolution you want and use. For its price and capabilities have voted it hot. You should always go and see the TV in action for yourself and make up your own mind.

Can you post direct link to Currys please... I cant find it, even on Google?

Get this Hitachi Full HD from Argos instead!

argos.co.uk/sta…htm

I recently purchased a 42" plasma that is 'only' 720p. My reasonings:

- Ridiculous value for money
- MUCH better IQ compared to LCD (better black levels, viewing angles, less noticeable lag)
- NO current TV provider outputs their streams in 1080p - your TV either upscales a 720p stream, or you use 1080i which is just horrible.
- Even with something that can output in full 1080p, there will only be a negligible difference in IQ.
- Design - A lot of plasma TV's are MUCH nicer to look at and usually have a thinner bezel.

Hot from me.

This comment MUST be just trolling. There is no comparison between the 2 TVs and this is perfect example of just how spurious the 720/1080 argument can be.

To prakashraman - if you want honest opinion on the Hitiachi from Argos just search for it in a previous HUKD post. I'm pretty sure you will reconsider your recommendation then!

I agree, I have just checked the Currys website again and it's no longer there although they do have the LG 42PJ350 42" HD Ready Plasma TV, Freeview, 600Hz, HDMI x2, USB 2.0 for £399, with free delivery.

currys.co.uk/gbu…tml

I'm very tempted by this but this model seems a bit light in terms of connectivity. Just 2 HDMI sockets and no VGA.

I know you can get switches for HDMI so your surround sound/Xbox 360/PS3/Sky/Dreambox kit can all connect but to be honest those switches are a PITA.

This was the link , the page has been taken down now . I had terrible trouble ordering this for collection or delivery , maybe it isn't available anymore .

Super deal! With Plasma's I tend to prefer to get ones with 5 years warranty.

Anyone know of anyone offering this at a similar price with 5 years warranty at a reasonable price?

Something in the same price range as Richer Sounds 5yr deal for the 'LG 42PJ350 42" HD Ready Plasma TV'
