best tv in the market

These are stunning - hot

By far the best looking TV on the market atm

The best looking TV for sure but can't quite justify the expense as I'm looking for 46-47" set. Worth noting the 46D8000 is £50 cheaper than the 46D7000 at John Lewis and has £150 back instead of £100 - so £100 cheaper to by the model up! Go figure...

That's nearly as good looking as my tv!

nothing beats my 21" matsui

Wish this was the price for the 46"... still waiting for it to hit the magic 1k mark...

Bloody Matsui fanboys, everyone knows Saisho owns Fatsui. My Saisho video even has a barcode reader. Proper quality Japanese kit. Samsung = cheap Korean rubbish too.

ahhh i would love to own this, but there would be a downside..... it would make my house look like a pile of crap... all items in its vicinity woudl pale into insignificance... they would look archaic in comparison and i would end up having to replace everything

heres to hoping htis will be £500 next year!

i doubt there will be any left, nor will it ever hit this price.. they look soo good though

Yeah sod the picture quality..i want a TV that looks great when it's switched off at least....

Think I'll stick with my Panny Plasma.

shame.. unless you own the VT you are probably in a position where you have poorer picture quality.. poorer features... and poorer aesthetics

are you kidding? this set looks the muts nuts whether it is switched on or not. depends on taste i suppose but it looks stunning compared to alot of other sets in the local TV retailers

still compared to this it does look a bit outdone

Can it be wall mounted? I like the stand and appreciate how thin it is, but still...

And yes, the TV looks great, but does the picture?!

im no expert but heard great things about this set especially regarding the picture quality so i would guess so

I took a look at this TV in my local richer sounds where they have a wall with all their TV's powered on showing the same feed. This wasn't the worst but it was a long way from being the best....SD in particular looked horrible...then again I'm probably biased as i like the more natural scaling from Plasma's...

Yes I have a VT... a 50" that cost less than this 40"....and no it does't look half as good as this TV when it's switched off.

does still amaze me that people buy TV's for how nice the Bezel looks and not the picture quality.

Still voted hot though it's a good price and the John Lewis 5yr warranty makes this a great deal if you want this TV.

I'm still waiting for them to be giving 3d tv's and tablets away... Only 6 months or so away.

This does look stunning and that 46inch is talking to me.

I was just thinking how I still love my Hitachi ALIS plasma, cost me 2k in the day but it was worth every penny.

LOL. Even the GT range is better than this Sammy in PQ and 3d departments. Only in looks is the Sammy better!!

My dad brought one of these when they first come out for his bedroom. I think he really liked it because although its stunning it doesn't end up the focal point of the room. Specially as its mounted to the wall. Good price for this TV.... I wouldn't buy one though!

who gives a damn about 3D.. its a load of old guff.... ive seen this playing a Blur-rays and it was pretty breath taking to be honest... would rig it up to PS3 and happy days

but yes SD will be a different kettle of fish entirely and plasma will always win the picture quality debate in that department i do not deny

personally id rather not pay £1,000 and have 30kgs of plain black panasonic ugliness sat on a stand...

i honestly think the aesthetics of everything panasonic have produced over the past 5 years have been the worst out of any of their competitors (sony, LG, Toshiba) and samsung have probably been top, panasonic seem to go for this kind of curved bezel design... fugly.

Don't forget you can play 3D games from PS3 as well as watching films, 3D isn't all bad.

I'm interested in a 3DTV for both, but whatever one I buy must have great SD quality as we still watch a lot of SD channels. Why does "plasma always win the picture quality debate" for SD? Is it softer and so doesn't upscale as badly? I can't believe how awful many of the 40" TVs are for SD...

Basically yes....A good plasma will give a softer upscaled image for SD feeds...Despite being 30kgs of plain black panasonic ugliness (even though my VT has a Bronze bezel ;-) )...My Plasma is very flattering to SD feeds as well as HD feeds...

Any HDTV will look pretty glorious with a nice BluRay feed..the real test is how a TV handles a poor qulaity SD feed which is something most stores won't show you. take a look in your local richer sounds and ask them to switch the feed to an SD feed when comparing TV's.

Judge a TV by it's picture quality not by how pretty the bezel is.....


as for the 3D..i agree, 3D movies leave me cold (although TT3D looks damn good i must admit) I bought my TV without caring for 3D and would have bught the same TV even if it wasn't a 3DTV but must admit i have caught the 3D bug with regard to games...Uncharted 3 for example looks stunning in 3D and I've yet to find anyone who wasn't impressed with 3D for gaming when they actually try it.

I am in the process of returning a TX-P42ST30B Panasonic viera 3d plasma 21 days old.
The picture is great I will definitely give it that (My pioneer Kuro PDP-428xd recently had 2 red flashing light problem) so can vouch for picture quality but the noise of the whiring fans and buzzing power boards is "DRIVING ME NUTS"............... and relax. So this TV is now on my radar. Has anyone else here had problems with noise from Panasonic TVs? And having to get a return code from them?

I'm mainly going to use a new HDTV for Sky HD and PS3 games, not Blu-rays. So I hear that they're all good with blu-rays, but does anyone have any opinions re using one with Sky HD? Sports, movies and "normal" HD channels like BBC HD, FX HD, etc. (But we also watch a lot of SD too, I haven't upgraded our hard drive to record more in HD.)

Same rules apply...to be honest any half decent new TV can make ANY HD feed look good as it is doing little or no scaling...(It's getting a 1080line feed and displaying it, only colour, brightness, contrast etc...will really vary to the normal person's eye)

Throw in a SD feed at 480 or 576 lines and the the TV has to start working a little harder to upscale this to 1080 lines (otherwise you'd have the image as a small box in the middle of the screen)

So If you want to watch a fair bit of SD make sure you see the TV's you've shortlisted demo'ing an SD feed in store.

This is the reason i like Richer Sounds as they will usually switch all TV's between SD/HD feeds for you to compare picture quality.

also note that in most stores (even RS) will leave the TV's on the default settings which are usually some nasty overbright dynamic option.

I'm thinking of selling my panny v20 42" and buying the 55" model of this sammy led.

Main reason being the panny has very high running costs compared LEDs.

I'm wondering if this sammy has close black levels to the v20? And will the SD and hd pq be around the same level?

Also, regarding the noise buzzing sound from the panny plasma, I found after a bit of research It relates to the wall mounting brackets used. Buzzing less likely when tv is not wall mounted.
