Erm... okay, what if I promise not to put it above my fireplace?

Don't want to be the first one to say it but.... it's not 1080p! :-D

On a TV this size you CAN definately tell the difference when watching a good quality High Def video. It's still a great quality TV though for the price, and with a Panasonic you can't really go wrong. For those who want 1080p I'd suggest looking at the G10 series, which also has built in FreeSat, but it's a bit more expensive!

I got mine from this retailer a couple of years back with the Pana warranty. You'll actually find that it's most high street retailers that offer this warranty, whether or not listed on the website.:thumbsup:

I'm not sending mine back!, anyway it's only 42''.
I've had mine for 18 months it's Panasonic and it cost the same as the one shown, red hot deal.
PS my TV is not 1080 and the picture is superb.

RS are NOT included on the free 5 yr warranty - why would you say that ? either pay the extra @ RS or price match with JL for the warranty.

That's a good price for that size but again, I agree with the two guys above... it's not 1080p

Have you asked instore?

They did for me when I bought my last Panny about this time last year, yet it wasn't widely advertised as such. They are authorised dealers OK, so I don't see why they won't.

Worked for me anyway to clinch the deal :thumbsup:

Initially they wanted to give me their own warranty free, but I said I wanted the Panny one....

You'll be lucky to find any of these models. I bought the 42 for my father a month ago and they only had 9 left in the warehouse for the whole of the UK, no 37s left at all. If you can find a store that has one then grab it as the quality is superb.

i bought mine a few months ago for 679 and i do not regret it. it looks superb and i dont care if its not 1080. Go for it

that depends how close you're sitting. If you're more than 10' from this tv (eye to screen), going above 720p would make no difference at all.

engadgethd.com/200…ze/

http://www.blogcdn.com/www.engadgethd.com/media/2006/12/resolution_chart.jpg

even if you are sitting closer, you're not going to feel the full brunt of 1080p till you're approx 7' away.

it might make a difference, but for a lot of people, a 50" set would only go in a room more than 10' wide, so for them it wouldn't.

+1 Rep!

I sit 14ft from one of these and it's perfectly fine. There are those who will always be fooled by the marketing hype!

Having said that, the G10 rules because it's a better screen, not because it has more pixels:-D.

Don't believe the 1080p hype my friend....judge with your eyes & not by looking at numbers on a specification sheet...this TV will wipe the floor with most if not all of the 1080p TV's when showing a freeview image...especially the LCD screens.

I bet you wouldn't bee able to see any difference in picture quality between this TV and one that is 1080p when showing a 1080p image.

I wouldn't take any notice of that chart either.....in my opnion it's a load of rubbish...if you are honest & not visually impaired you will see that this TV will produce a much cleaner, realistic & unprocessed picture than most of the competition out there...that is if you can look at the screen for a moment & stop looking for the 1080p logo !

Cheers.

1080p on a LCD is far more noticable than 1080p on a Plasma.

But if you have a PS3/Blu-ray player, the 1080p is something you should take more serious.

If it's just for TV/DVD/360, then this set will be fine.

You clearly don't know what you're talking about - and haven't read all the posts...:roll:

Re that chart, well I have a 37" TV and I sit 3 meters away ... so in theory I can't see anything better than standard def '480p', however I can tell the difference between 720 and 1080... but then my day job has me judge the quality of £80K projectors :-)

My advice is to try see the sceen in question at the distance your viewing it at, under similar lighting conditions from a reliable source e.g. blu-ray or DVD that you care about. Then judge if you think the screen is good for you.

Your advice about seeing a TV for yourself is very good, but not as good as your eyesight! If you have 20:10 vision (the best you can get; 20:20 is the minimum standard) then you will indeed JUST be able to tell the difference between 1080 and 720 on a 37 inch set. The rest of us mere mortals need a bigger TV, lower resolution or sit closer to the box!

Information on acuity and adjusted guidelines are available ]here along with a handy calculator

I got P42G10 for £660 (with Quidco) from Pixmania instead. Arriving tomorrow.

Just been advised that 50" screens look crap on none hd equipment (pixelated) is that right?Also warranty from richer sounds is their own, so if go bust tough!

only on lcd models, sd looks fine on a 50" plasma, especially from 2.5-3 metres. plus with a 720p set the image wouldnt be quite as stretched. fair point about the warranty though

this model is awesome if you ask me, 1080p or not. the 50" pioneer 508 plasma wasnt 1080p and it got fantastic reviews

I'm not confusing the 2 brands, just saying that non-1080 panels can still be great sets. plus pioneer use panasonic plasma panels anyway

If you mostly watch standard definition tv (freeview, non bluray dvd, etc) then 720p is better. If you mostly watch high definition then 1080p is better. I have the 42" version of this tv and its fantastic, I tried the 1080p G series and the picture on standard definition was awful.

hot hot hot!

My brother wants to get his first plasma, I'm very tempted to sell him mine and get this.

I have the Panasonic TH-42PX70 how does this compare?. I'm after first hand\real world experiences.

What's the difference appart from the size, native resolution and inputs, as i'm mainly concerned about image quality as there's not much point if the picture isn't as good. Would be used for Freeview, XBox 360, HTPC (video\games) and eventually Bluray, I'm just over 8ft away from the screen.

Cheers :thumbsup:

perhaps so! :oops: Apologies to you & Faythur

just that RS are not listed on Panasonics web-site authorised dealers, & people generally price match with JL for the "free" 5 yr warranty (& delivery?). I have already tried a PM today for the 42" version, if that does not work out I will try my luck with RS. oh, nearly forgot - HOT !!

If you look on av forums they say the px80 was quite a bit better picture quality than yours, and the X10 is even better on HD mainly but also sound quality. This was on the X10 owners thread.

Get yourself along to Comet, Curry's etc & take a look first hand....you can't really ask anyone to describe picture quality as their idea of a good picture may be totally different than yours.

Cheers.

MrHappy37 - sounds good :thumbsup:
uncle buck - I totally agree, it's a very subjective thing especially with colour tones for example. I was hoping for feedback from an AV expert with long term experience of both, read that as me being lazy :-D. I was hoping to get down to Dixons today as RS didn't have one on display.
Thanks for the replys

Good idea in practice mate, but the set-ups at Comet etc are not that good a platform to make a realistic comparison. Reason being they are all set up differently and use different feeds dependant on the manufacturer - they get 'bonuses' for selling more Samsung products for example.

Best to get down to an independent retailer with a good set-up - not too easy a task I know.

Wouldnt bother with either Currys or Comet on any count, independent best for sure. Just spent the morning frustratingly trying to get sense out of both.. wasted my time.. Comet gave me a load of blurb about how every TV is the same:? and that I should expect to the see the same picture from all tvs.. really?.. do you think? so left him alone
Then went to Currys and thought I'd got a price match, established all of the terms and conditions with the sales assistant.. met every one of them.. they then changed those conditions to suit their need to avoid the price match.. beggars belief... left them as well... shall not bother again. To add insult the 'manager' of the Coventry branch(Alvis retail park) was condescending beyond words.. left the shop before I left an imprint....:x Rant over sorry people feel better for telling you though... thx. Will spend money more wisley elsewhere.. Currys no worries and Comet live electrical.. apparently:p

has anyone bought this, how do they like it?

Tempted to get this for my parents, even though it's back up to £650 now.

Is it worth the extra £65 for 4 years warranty?

Thanks

£620 now.

Still a good deal.
