Quidco not on M&S Technology

m&s have had alot of good deals on tvs , if you dont need a tv this big take a look at some of there other deals , alot of 1080p 32" very cheap , heat added

Good TV, for £800 its damn good.

Bought this a few months ago for same price at Costco. Pretty good for the money. Very underwhelmed by the 3d but otherwise good. I'd say a cautious hot

Unless you really love the picture a plasma produces, go for an LED lit LCD. Put it this way, you'll save yourself a bit off your electricity bill over the years. Anyone know how much you'd save over a year with average use?

Plasma uses variable power compared to static for led/lcd, would probably save you £10-20 a year.

Maybe. Better for the environment though I guess.

But like I said. led/lcd consumes a static amount. Technically in the right circumstances, a plasma can use the least.
If the environment was such a concern, and part of the decision on buying a tv, you wouldn't be buying 50 inch telly.

What's the going price for extra sets of glasses, and is there any difference between branded and non-branded? (assuming they exist)
Also is there any real significant advantages to active shutter 3D to passive 3D?

Thanks!

Outstanding tv for the price last years 2011 flagship plasma model

According to the reviews I've read this TV was £1350 at launch, not £1900.

Yes, I think the OP has got it wrong.
It's the UE46D8000 LED TV from last year that was around the £1900 price range at launch.

I think it was probably a bit more than £1350, but definitely less than £1900. There's no way this PS51D8000 was the same price as the UE46D8000 & like you say, the reviews confirm this.

Mind you, still a good deal though (just not quite as good as OP is suggesting)

Was just going in the John Lewis price on release
Didn't really look into it
I bought the 55" led c8000 at release was £2250
On release that was £2800 rrp
Plagued with issues like cross talk
And black flicker,
Extra glasses are only around £15 each
But remember these use blue tooth ones not I.R. Ones
Although you can turn ir mode on in the engineers menu

Heat added.

Needs the manufacturer in the title of the deal!

Just done it pal . Cheers

I bought the 55 LCD 7000 from usedisgood.com and it was basically new. I did post the deal here but it got marked as spam due. If you want the 55 it is worth checking them out.

As the OP said the difference in running costs will be negligible compared to the initial cost of the sets. Although yes in almost all circumstances (unless you watch material with lots of very dark scenes all the time) the LED backlit set would be slightly more efficient in terms of power consumption.

WRT being better for the environment, the best thing you could do is stick with your old set, as the biggest impact will be in the manufacture and transport of this set

Voted hot btw, but holding out for the 60"+ sets to drop further. The next set will be replacing a 46" set and I don't want to regret not going bigger as I did with that set. Also for 3D FOV is important in order to provide a truly immersive 3D experience, therefore for my setup I need a larger set.

According to the latest Which magazine a 50" plasma will cost around £83 a year to power and a 46" LED TV will be around the £36 mark. I suppose it's fair to say that an LED TV will cost at least 50% less a year than a plasma to run, so over the course of a 5 year warranty period the plasma in this deal will cost around £207 extra to an LED.

PLEASE be careful when reading about this tv
There are several positive comments out there but you don't find the negative user comments

I brought this exact tv from house of Fraser for £900+5 yr guarantee
It the last 14 months of having this tv, it has spend just under 5months back with HoF for repairs for various faults
Biggest issue was that plex kept freezing leaving black dots everywhere.. I am now on my 3rd replacement..

So be aware of the, u get what you pay.. For that price invest around £100 more and get a better tv

Sorry to be negative but this is what I have experienced and want to share to help you make your mind up

Bought this a few months ago from John Lewis, and I have to say, its a stunning TV and for this price you cant go wrong especially with the free 5 year warranty.

Better yet don't get a plasma they are so unreliable go for LED instead

I think I saw this yesterday in Tesco , Fort Kinnaird Edinburgh for 600.
Might not have the 5 years garantee tho.

Really, based on your experience?

I had a 720P Samsung plasma for 3 years with no problems at all, I've had the Samsung PS51D6900 (the baby brother of this set) for the last year with no problems at all, and my next set will be a plasma too, unless OLED technology matures, as every ordinary LED TV I've viewed has looked terrible compared to my plasma.

good deal worth some heat. I'd still go for an LG Passive 3D TV if I was going for a 3D TV, much better effect and experience IMO.

I know they have improved on plasma sets since i bought one 3 years ago,but they do apparently,still suffer from burn out spots.

The risk of burn in is inherent in plasma technology, but far lower in modern sets. Retention is more prominent, although at least it's not permanent. Do not believe anyone who tells you otherwise, it's not their money at risk. But also don't be overly put off by the experiences of owners with older plasma sets, it's best to research the set you're considering and evaluate how prevelant burn in and retention issues are from other users experience.

That's not really a fair comparison, since a 50" set has a significantly larger surface area then a 46" set (801 sq in versus 680 sq in)

any suggestions for a wall bracket for this?
