Did you notice the model number or any specs?

i've seen this a few weeks ago in bristol longwell green so I assume it's a national deal.

All I could see on the box was 'series 4 4500 class'.

I think this is probably a HD Ready tv rather than full HD.

similar to this: argos.co.uk/sta…htm

It's good people take the time to post possible hot deals, but the information given by the OP is very poor

Paid more than that for the 32" UE32F4500 last week!

Your crappy three deals are poor.
I passed on all the information I had and even went back to check the model number on my way out for happyman but I couldn't see it on the box. Do some work yourself you ungrateful ****. Next time I won't bother.

Have the 3d version of this. Despite it only been HD ready the picture is superb.

Is plasma no good then?

Some people prefer Plasma, others prefer LED. Both have it's pros and cons

The resolution of this tv, however, is no good

Plasma are the best and do not let anyone tell you otherwise!

plasma is the best screen tech out there

this tv is excellent. plasma has amazing blacks and a resolution that on sky plus HD looks great.

usb plays movie etc from stick. endless image mods via the menu to geek up the image.

I got it on the £200 argos deal a few months ago

buy it. amazing set. great balcks endless settings. sky plus HD looks great

Good price, but It'll probably cost £249 a year to run it. ;@P

Troll alert!!

Troll alert!!



OMG!!! almost $4 a year more electric for a 42" plasma over a lcd,
People will have to save up!

rtings.com/inf…ost

Indeed.

At the risk of feeding the trolls .....

No. It won't cost £249 a year to run. Not even close.

I run a bigger plasma than this (Panasonic) and it comes with running costs of £68 per year. (based on it being on 4 hours a day, 365 days a year)

Don't have the model number but only one 43" Samsung is found on the energy review site and it is a 4500 model so good chance it's this one. £19 a year. Cheaper than some LED/LCD sets. sust-it.net/ene…3.0

And anyone wondering if plasma is any good, go have a look at the best rated TV's on HDTVTest.co.uk. The top ten comprise 8 plasma and 2 OLED. The first LCD/LED is a Sony at number 14. Not a single LCD/LED set gets their reference level award. They're all plasma or OLED.

I'd take this over a full HD supermarket special LCD/LED every day of the week.

Sefton is right, the lack of any useful information on the deal is disappointing and poor.

Your response to that criticism is to hurl abuse and swear.

Perhaps next time as you suggested, don't bother :-)

Is this not the same size make and model they were selling in Tesco over Easter for the same price?

Just need extension lead to the USA to get power for 11 cents KWh though lol we pay around 17.5 p KWh about 30 cents
Also your maths is out difference is $17.86 per year
Plasma TV,s do use approx twice as much power as LED/LCD yes they do giver better blacks but used in well lit room i find
they look washed out and screen reflective ie not black .Yes there great in dim lit room but no good for me though

Just looked at specs for this TV Power Consumption (Max): 192W yes i know its max use so will average will be bit lower
But could you show me LED/LCD 43 in that uses around 160/170 W ??
I do like plasma but think they only excel in dim lit room were LCD shows its major shortcomings
But you have to except they do use nearly twice as much power as LED but its no big thing unless its on all day
Edited by: "0scar222" 30th Apr 2014

it's also available at Darlaston Asda same price

Ace price and PLASMA over LCD all the way... Picture is far superior. Heat added. .

There are a few LED lit sets in the same sort of annual running cost range. Don't know about wattage consumption, it doesn't tell you that.

Just use a few of the filters on the site I linked to above.

Such as ...

sust-it.net/ene…2.0 (An LG 42")
sust-it.net/ene…6.0 (A Samsung 46")

And obviously a few more in the bigger sizes. LED lit is cheaper to run. Thats true. But the difference is often a lot less than many people would have you believe.

And old style LCD will use about the same as a modern plasma, or slightly more. Older plasmas used more. Most LED lit sets will be cheaper. But £19 vs £10 per year isn't going to matter to the majority I wouldn't think. And if you're in the position where 25p a week makes that much difference, you probably don't have any money to spare for the TV in the first place ....

I got this tv through hukd, but I brought mine more than 5 months ago. I can vouch that it's a good tv. The quality is good. 2 hdmi ports and one USB port which is helpful if you have chromecast which I do.

Just have look at specs modern Plasma 42/43 in about 170 watts LED/LCD 42/43 in about 60 watts if my maths is right
that just under half the consumption for LED/LCD
Old CCFL /LCD about same as modern plasma but look at older plasma about 350 watts
Modern plasma,s have loads for tricks to reduce consumption what are very annoying ie eco sensor
Reason why plasma is defunct technology is not because LED/LCD is better its environmental

Absolutely.

For me, plasma is a much more natural picture and you don't have a lot of the problems that LED lit LCD sets have like motion blur, colour reproduction and even back lighting. I also find the picture on any LCD set, regardless how it's lit, harsh compared to plasma. If you are looking for the best of the best, plasma is still the way to go .... even if they are slightly more expensive to run.

Think mine peaks out at over 400w when it's working it's hardest. But the average is lower. I've been running plasma for years now and can't say I've ever noticed it making any difference to my overall electricity costs ...

Problem now is with plasma its not getting invested in any more so getting left behind technology wise will never see 4k plasma in home
Only things have been done on plasma eco functions that have actually made plasma worse in most cases
Also LCD is improving quite a lot ie area back lighting and 4k and lot faster panels
Edited by: "0scar222" 1st May 2014

4k is still a white elephant for me at the moment. Not standardised, no content, and still suffers from many of the same backlighting and display technology problems as the current 1080p crop. Sure, it has detail (if you have any content, upscaling doesn't count), but I'm more interested in OLED. They have far better colour reproduction than LCD.

So once there is a 4k OLED set at a sensible price (could be a while!) then I'll look at them. Oh, and they need to drop the whole curve thing with OLED. Or at least put wall mounts on the back.

For now, I bagged myself a top line plasma before they vanish off the market. Picture on it is seriously awesome. And it's a top line model with full, in depth, configuration available so I can switch on or off any setting I want so eco-mode and all that nonsense doesn't get in the way of big screen picture awesomeness. Maybe some have been made worse. But certainly not the one I ended up with. Hence why it has a reference level award on pretty any review site you care to check ....
