It didn't get very hot, 51.

This isn't full hd and not that great a deal in my opinion, and better deals will emerge within the next week.

I was looking more recent.

That was posted 6 months ago! How can you compare a price for a TV 6 months ago to a price now?

Lol, When i searched for it that is the latest post that shows up. Shame this site is seriously handicapped by an awful search engine!

Seems good to me if your after a cheap plasma. Sd material always looks better on the slower res plasma screens.

Yup, Your right there. I have searched for things before and wondered how the hell some of the things that came up actually got there. Its not a search engine, its more of a random engine.

Use the advanced search (link is next to the search box), as it works far better than the rather useless search box.

Almost whipped out my debit card .... untill I saw it the resolution .. so close, but ty OP

That was like a week before the world cup if I remember correctly... Any TV deal was sky high...

good deal

I got this TV from Dixons about 2 months ago for about £320 with a voucher code... I use it just for upscaled DVDs and picture quality is excellent so i'd deffenatly recommend it. It's quite slim too next to a 37" LCD i replaced

1024 X 768?

Surely a mistake in the spec there.

Probably meant 1280 x 720 or 1366 x 768?

I have the previous model to this and the picture is truly excellent (and I paid £700 for mine). It may not be 'full HD' that's true, but stick this side by side with a 1080P model of the cheaper brands (including Samsung & LG) and you'll see that the picture quality is so much better - HD & SD TV are wonderfully clear. You really can't go wrong with a 42" Panasonic for this kind of money X)

Thanks for the heads up. Got a full 1080, 42" panny and the picture is excellent, but after comparing with a 720 you really can't see any noticable difference. I paid £850 3 years ago and can't believe this price. Excellent gift, my dad was well jealous. Cheers

Decent TV if you still live in the 90's as SD does look pretty good on this. If you have a blu ray player, sky HD, media center, ps3 / xbox and sit within spitting distance of the set, then get a proper full HD tele.

All I can say is that if you want a very good TV from a first-class "stable" (Panasonic), with an excellent picture, this is a fantastic price.

I bought one a year ago and cannot rate it too highly.

Nope 1024x768 is correct for an entry level plasma of this size as the pixels are slightly elongated and not square so it still gives a 16:9 picture.

was debating whether to buy this or the £299 42" Bush. It's for the spare room so not after anything too fancy ... think this will do the job nicely. Need to find a deal for a stand now. Thanx for posting.

any codes available?

Yes it's ONLY 720p, but visitors to our house STILL comment on how good the picture is so I tend to ignore the 'but it's not 1080p fullHD crowd'. Who made them experts at picture quality anyway ? They remind me of the Clarkson idea of cars.......'the more bhp the car has then the better it must be' bull.

Only downside is that the screen can be quite reflective in daylight, cannot comment on others because I haven't viewed any in similar conditions. So glad I didn't buy an LCD now. Bought for £399 this summer, saved £200 on next panny at the time so I'm happy. Oh, and it's a 2010 model (_;)

I think that this deal was never a reality to be honest. I've been in store, and online. Seems like it was just to get people in store

Just shows the ignorance of people whe it comes to advertising these days, Sky is only really 720p and has 1080i which isnt true 1080 resolution, very few games output in 1080p yet and only blu ray or hd dvd does.
