Looks like john Lewis have this in stock.

ok - so seriously gutted , bought this last week for £749 from Currys. Brilliant TV, and John Lewis refused to price match as it did not have a 5 yr gaurantee from Currys.

but any advice if I can get the £50 back from Currys considering I only bought it 1 week ago ?

oh - hot last time, so smoking now!!8)

the same thing happened to us but with a fridge/freezer, we bought it on a friday and
the following monday they reduced it by £25 ---- i went into the store and 'complained'.
I say complained but i didnt have to complain very hard as they reimbursed us the £25
straight away.
I think they have a policy that if you can find it cheaper within a certain time span
(i forget what it was) --- they would price match and that included themselves.

cheers - will try, not too dissappointed as the TV was still a bargain and is absolutely amazing, just wish I had waited as the price at £699 is brilliant

I ordered this tv 2 days ago from currys £749,phoned them and they said they will refund the differance,you have up to 7 days.

I agree,you still got a bargain ---- i keyed in my post code yesterday where i live in staffs,
and it said the nearest currys to me that had one was Glasgow --- so it appears they are
in short supply anyway.
If my local currys had one i would have tried to convince the wife that we could do with
an upgrade to one of these, but will wait now for the next generation panasonic tvs
to come down in price.

So tempted just waiting for a better deal that includes the 3D glasses

The television is going clearance. Prices ending in 99 are current line, 97 is clearance and 98 (such as this) means it will be going clearance soon. That's why you might be struggling to get stock in-store.

Currys/PC World Price Promise applies up to 7 days from purchase. If you're within this period you can have the difference refunded to you.

Great price for a fab TV!

Oh yes, not a problem to get the money back.

Either go into a Currys store or call the phone number and you'll have the amount refunded onto your card.

the new flagship model for 2012 has just reviewed by what hifi think they are clearing stock now but at £ 1400 for the new version this is a cracking deal

Does it come with the "plasma buzz" ? I got told all plasmas have this from comet techs on the phone & local store manager..

Jokers

I am tempted...can't decide which brand to go for....this seems like a good deal for a 3D TV but it's plasma and I wanted LED...

I want a good deal on the VT30B model!!!!

Convince her and get free home delivery?

Panasonic really do make GREAT TV's, they are one of the few manufacters that build everything themselves (from the panel to the surrounds) and Bang and Olfsen use Panasonics panels (but not the latest version, they use the previous generation of panel).

I'll just say it here before some people get it wrong, you do not have to "re Gas" the Plasma.

I bet it does. Had vt20 for a week but buzzing from colling fans, flicker and sound quality was to innoying to put up with. Or maybe I just got used to my old sony w5810. good price voted hot

What *is* better? Plasma or LED? Or is it all subjective?

Awful tv's that Panasonic make these days, well plasma panels anyway, they all suffer from the dreaded 50hz bug which is very evident as we live in a PAL country that uses 50hz material, and the really bad thing is the dynamic face contouring effect which makes skin tones look green/purple on anything moving, they have suffered this since introducing these type of panels in 2010 with the VT20 sets, the VT30 last year and even the new just launched VT50 sets have these issues aswell. Steer clear as there are much better sets out there, my 7 year old Panasonic PV500 plasma is so much better than the crap they put out these days, that was easily the best panel they have ever produced.

Never heard of this problem before.....

New range of Pannys coming including LED that refresh at 2500mhz and LCD's that refresh at 160mhz
I am gonna wait

What's the difference between the Viera TX-P46ST30B and the Viera TX-P46GT30B??



OK Time to clear up some Hz misconceptions

There is NO panel that does above 200Hz (True Hzs) all panels will work at either 50Hz 100Hz or 200Hz (and 200 are not on the market just yet) EVERY manufacturer will put something after the Hz (such as SFD, sub field drive) or Intelligent Scanning as it is a legal requirement. Look it up if you don't believe me, EVERY TV is 50hz or 100hz now and 200hz is on the horizon for 2012 models. You will get manufacturers talking **** about Hz such as 1600Hz SFD or 2500SFD, it's just a marketing term now.

Panasonic definitely make some of the best TV's out there, much better than some Korean ones.

Subjective... but plasma.

I prefer plasma as the picture is much more natural looking, energy consumption is not a massive factor now either

Chewchewcheroo

Never heard of this problem before.....



i have this tv and it is class, the picture is amazing, sound isnt great but hooked up to home cinema anyway. the dual tuners are nice if you dont have sky, and freesat has dolby sound on some channels. it does have some plasma buzz if your hearing is good enough, mine is, the missus isnt.

heat added, great price for a fab tv

Looks good, hot.

Good Deal. Hot

Its reduced because its discontinued and has been replaced by a new ST50, GT50 & VT50 range in 42", 50", 55" & 65" which have a 2000Hz - 2500Hz sub drive refresh rate and Built in WiFi. The New TV's themselves have a much slimmer frame, which is more modern and attractive. Oh and they cost more than twice as much LOL





Edited by: "alexandercooper" 29th Mar 2012

If you want to get one of the old ranges, get the VT30 not the GT30, the VT is better in most aspects. Im going to be getting the new GT50, reviews are saying its potential tv of the year.

Just to let you know you might be able to grab the P46ST30 with 2 pairs of 3d glasses and a 5 year warranty from a Panasonic store for 599 if you live in the north.

I ordered this - panasonicstore-leeds.co.uk/3d/…tml and was told they only had ex-display left which they let me have for 599. I've not posted it as I may have got the last one...but you could always ring and ask.

OK its not as nice a panel as this, but with the glasses and warranty thrown in it might appeal to some people.

Ive got the gt30 50inch and paid £1299 for it when it first came out. Great picture but will seem a little dull for people coming from led/lcd tvs.

Mine has a freesat tuner built in so running a cable straight from my sky dish to the back of the telly and bbc hd looks very sharp and clear.

Also watched Apocalypse Now bluray on it last night and i really couldnt fault the picture, simply beautiful, looked like it had been filmed yesterday.

Dont worry about the 50hz bug when watching broadcast tv i dont notice it.

Sound is weak so ur gonna need home cinema setup.

Panasonic plasmas buzz, the younger your ears the more u will hear it. Took some getting used to but now i dont notice it. Plus the closer to the wall the louder it gets.

All in all this is the best tv you can buy for £700 and i knew this day was coming because all panasonics drop in price by a massive amount a month or so before this years models are released but it doesnt take any of the pain out of me spending £1200 this time last year on the 50inch version!

Main differences here, ST30 is the entry level model for the 2011 lineup,no THX mode & thicker bezel while the GT30 features THX mode but only an Infinite Black Pro Panel

Great tv, had no problems. Worth every penny.

**** - none in stock at any of the stores near me. Got meself so excited that if I can't have it NOW I don't want it. I know that given time to think about it, I'll persuade myself I don't need it so it's now or never - obviously never for this one ....
