Good deal but was released in early 2012. EGR and Smart features are dated and cannot be upgraded. Good picture though for the price

great price. i paid £1200 back in July 2012 from JLP with the 5yr warranty and two pairs of glasses. excellent tv but i don't use the multimedia side. i found both Panasonic and Samsung to be crap for streaming.

Would have gone for the 50 at this price originally but plumped for the 42 at £749 a few weeks back. Luckily I then got a price match down to £625 so I am pretty happy with my choice. Would have loved the 50" though.

JL must have reduced the price today.
Yesterday it was £899 with 5yr warranty.
Hot.

Yep GT60 comes out in a couple of weeks, so everyone starting to clear old stock, great tv and price thou

Great deal ordered myself one of these. Been waiting all year for this to come down in price!

The GT60 will be £600 more when it is available. Can anyone tell me if it is really worth that extra money?

As far as i can tell the GT60 has slightly better brightness, slightly better black levels and better smart tv features.

Could'nt care less about smart tv, picture quality is priority.

Superb deal, bought one at the beginning of the year, £1100 with2 pairs of glasses and 5 year guarantee.

"The GT60 will be £600 more when it is available. Can anyone tell me if it is really worth that extra money?"

"As far as i can tell the GT60 has slightly better brightness, slightly better black levels and better smart tv features."

There are offers available for just under £1300 online for the gt60 currently.
It has the standard extras included in the previous vt50 (glasses, extra remote for smart functions) but the gt60 also has voice activation controls.
I still can't decide gt50/vt50 or gt60..

JL was doing the gt50 for this 799 offer price a couple of months ago..

Great deal. Hot!

I've seen it at £799.99 for a while now. Been waiting for the GT60.

I bought one of these last May and would totally recommend it, specially at this price!

The picture quality is fantastic and the 3d is the most convincing that I've seen on a TV set (watching Avatar 3d for the first time, when a dust mote drifted across the screen, I actually tried to sweep it away from my face...). The sound is pretty good too, for a flat panel set.

Don't use it for streaming very often, but when I do (wireless network), I've never had any problems at all.

Seems to get good reviews, won best 50-52 inch tell award at whathifi last year

Don't forget that it has Freeview HD and Freesat HD built in. The picture is stunning from this set. The user interface for the Smart TV isn't a patch on the Samsung we have in the other room. Panasonic aren't the most pro-active at sorting out issues with software etc etc but as we got our set below this price with 5yr warranty I have put up with it. This price isn't that great but with the £150 warranty thrown in its hot for me.

hot hot hot these will be gone very soon at this price.ordered mine last night,free delivery and free 5 year garantee,oh yes.

Where did you find it for £625? I can't fit a 50" in my room and would really like to get them to price match the 42". Thanks

Have you noticed any image burn-in with your set? Looking at online reviews, there are a couple of places that mention image burn-in. Thanks

No glasses include takes the mickey!!!

Always been impressed by the picture on this set compared to others on display around it in stores.

Grab one if you can, it's one of the last generation. 4K and 8K technology will kill plasmas due problems with resizing of cells. LED or OLED cells will be far more simple to miniaturise.

Sorry i got this for £899 about 2 months ago. It doesnt quite beat my gt30 i still have in another room. The heat it produces will keep a room warm, that is a smaller room. Very good otherwise. If the other higher end models were reduced id go with them. JUST the HEAT on this im thinking of taking it back to JLewis who knows may offer me this reduced price, but would they?

Amazing telly. Grab it!!

I got this tv for this price a few weeks back from John Lewis via a price match. This is an awesome TV, don't hesitate at this price. Did manage to get two pairs of the 3D glasses free via redemption but that offer has now finished.

I havent ordered any yet but when researching i found these that seem to work well from the reviews

These Samsung Glasses will also work that at £15 from currys, although the design looks like alot of ambient light will get in.

Gah, bought this a couple of days ago at £899, but it isn't delivered until tomorrow - anyone know what JL's policy is on offering decreases or any angle I have? Thanks in advance

EDIT - ignore me, it is covered - johnlewis.com/cus…com Just talked to someone on the phone and they said they'd refund the difference when I call them after delivery - great work HKUD!

thanks are you sure currys ones will work with this,as i will buy them and dont want to have to return them,thanks.

The Samsung Glasses definitely work with Panasonic TV's I bought one last week and bought 4 pairs for £15 ish each from Currys. Dont know how they compare to the genuine Panasonic ones but they work fine for me.

Yes they definitely work. Was talking about it over on the AV Forums and plenty of people using them with this TV.

I had this Tv last year, but also had the green blobs issue with it

once you see it you will always notice it, so returned for a refund.

not sure this has been fixed yet or not via a firmware update?

read up on it first on avforums

hmmmm sounds brillaint - but cant help feeling that plasma is old tech

So what you're really saying is DON'T buy one of these as it's going to age faster than a pint of milk left in the sun?

I work in electronics and that people still would spend that much money on a plasma TV baffles me. Cold

I work in electronics and that people would still spend this much money on a plasma TV baffles me. It will make your electric bill soar, they hum, and plasma burn images to the TV. LED are untouchable. Cold for me

^ LOL what electronics? Have you got a Tamagotchi? Are you from 2001?

They run on similar power to LED, hum is non existent on my LG Plasma, there hasn't been screen burn in Plasma's for about 5 years (on decent sets)

Welcome to 2013
