Been looking for a new Tv for a few weeks after my 50" samsung turned up faulty from cdiscount and they wouldn't replace it (still waiting for a refund). And found this

This looks the business it's a 2009 model released a month a go granted it's in their "budget range" but you cant go wrong with a panny plasma.

I'm interested too.


I have the 37" version of this, it's amazing!!

FYI the difference between 720p and 1080p with a screen of 50" becomes apparent at a distance of 9 feet 8 inches.

Anyone here sit that close to their 50"?

See this article here: carltonbale.com/200…er/

Superb TV, superb price. You would only really notice 1080p if you're sitting on top of it.

I understand people who want 1080p but what I would say is if your budget meant you could get a 42" 1080p or a 50" 720p then I would go for a 50" 720p every time. I have a 50" 720p Samsung (ah if only it was a panny) and HD looks amazing. Great find.

Total barg, 1080p or not.

I didn't buy it in the end, i'm half tempted it's just the fact it wasn't 1080p that putting me off. But i'm definitley tempted to take the plunge.

How far are you away from the screen?

How far are you away from the screen?



That is the $1000000 question.

Read this article to find out why:

carltonbale.com/200…er/

1080p has problem with some games apparently so I'm not overly fussed with it, plus it would be difficult to tell the difference anways.
This come up as 766 for me(?)
Is there a code?

So if you sit closer than 9feet 8 inches you will notice the difference between 1080p and 720p:thumbsup:

I concur :thumbsup:

Bought the 37" version last week. Only watch SD pictures but the picture is sharp, blacks are REALLY black and I notice virtually no juddering or blurring.

Is that suppose to be sarcastic?:?

If you sit closer than 9 feet 8 inches you will notice the difference between 720p, if you sit further than that you will not notice the difference

Currently listing at £766.00. Am I missing something ?

Not if you have duff eyesight you won't.

Nor if your more interested in viewing the picture than looking for pixels. :w00t:

Me and my bro did when he had his, although his was 720p and it took ******* ages to warm up & to get a decent picture

I bought a 42" panasonic plasma with freesat in Jan and love love love it
Prob' the most important thing that I learned is that John Lewis (never knowingly undersold) ALWAYS GIVE A 5 YEAR WARRANTY WITH EVERY TV SOLD
If it's not too late, ask JL to pricematch and you'll get the warranty at no extra cost!
Hope this is useful

This is online only, JL won't pricematch I'm afraid.

I suppose they'll be clearing out the lcds and plasmas over the next twelve months to make way for the leds and laser tvs?

John Lewis aren't selling this TV.
Dixons will sell you a 5yr warranty for about 200 quid
Your local independent Panasonic dealer will sell you this for 850 with a 5 year warranty from May 1st - I know cos I just bought one!
Of course if you want to take a chance on it not breaking then this is a STUNNING DEAL.

Oh, you will need to sit 6 ft from this set to get the FULL benefit of 1080 on this set. From 9'8" is just gets better than 720. Almost nobody needs 1080.

+1

People who say its no point getting 1080p probably think you should buy a ford fiesta instead of a ferrari, just because you're only allowed to go 70mph. Far more difference in quality imo going from 720 to 1080 than ~420p to 720p.

I use mine for gaming and as a htpc with HD playback, and can notice the differerence immensely even from 6ft away on a 40" screen..

Seems an odd choice of words, if you're spending over £700 on something you shouldn't be 'taking a chance' on it not breaking. I believe the Sale of Goods Act would agree too.

I own a blu-ray player, hd-dvd, PS3, and Sky HD. Despite all of this, 90% of my viewing is still SD content, so I do not notice the difference between 720p or 1080p most of the time.

In truth, I think my Panny 37" 720p set actually produces better pictures than my Panny 46" 1080p set most of the time. I think the 37"er gives better colour reproduction.

Fair point but try getting your cash back from Dixons in 3 years time if it breaks. I like the insurance on a big purchase like this but that's my choice.

6 ft on a 40 inch screen - of course you can tell the difference. I sit 14 ft away tho...

I agree - I think people should assess their main viewing sources - if its via SD - Freeview or Freesat or Sky including HD channels then the maximum output is 1080i. If they intend to use Blu Ray etc then go 1080p.

720p LCD

And yes I know Plasmas output a better picture at 720p, however I just know I'd want better!
Unfortunately, I can't justify the expense just yet!

Just got this tv delivered on sat from Dixons, still playing around with it, also got Panasonic SC-PT860 - 5.1 ch - Tallboy - DVD Home Cinema System - With iPod Dock
to go with it, and must say I am impressed with the 1080i upscale on DVD. Surround sound is amazing, defiantly does for me. Just waiting for sky Hd now.

It's not even a case of Plasma's outputting better - it's an entirely different image. LCD always looks 'pixelly' and washed out. Fast motion - forget about it. Most LCDs will just suffer.

Trust me - I have a 50" plasma with a 1366 panel and it accepts 1080p/24 which is simply STUNNING. We sit about 7ft from the TV and even with the CGI stuff (like Corpse Bride at 1080p via HD-DVD) close up it's nigh on perfect.

Do yourself a favour, don't be a pixel-counter and take some well-informed advice from someone who has been in both camps and would firmly recommend plasma over LCD. :thumbsup:
