They might match the price but not the 6 year warranty.
JL should pricematch this nationwide

where is the information about the motion handling please ?
No doubt clearing there stock for the quite possibly best lcd ever judging by early thoughts the 65dx900 £3200 at TPS pre order
These were 999 on their ebay outlet a few months back, they suffer from motion handling.
Really??? Id sooner wait 1 week * the price will plummet seeing as all tvs do * slight exaggeration on 1 week
Yeah I think it's instore only, couldn't see it on the website
OK 2k for a 4k telly still no thanks ;)
Lukewarm review: Curved Screen They reckon the flat models perform better.
I think you'll find it's a 4k Telly ;)
2k just for a telly no thanks.
Just a little cheaper at RS (with the same 6-year warranty) - only looked at one model though, the 55CX802. http://www.richersounds.com/product/tv---all/panasonic/viera-tx55cx802b/pana-tx55cx802b £2299 - £315 (in total) cashback = £1984
At present (when they come in stock, that is) it's a gamble over saving a £100 elsewhere plus the £300 off deal for the 65" or paying that extra £100 for an extra years' warranty with Panasonic stores. Still, Richer will no doubt price match and give their 6yr warranty - answered me own dilemma. :p Panasonic OLEDs may be coming next year but I can't see them being cheaper than LG, - as they are sourcing screens from them.
Panasonic OLEDs expected next year. Worth pointing out that these do have very good black levels for an LCD, and the colour reproduction is probably the best on the market.
without o.l.e.d * typo
massive fan of panny,great tv put there is no way I would pay this for a 4k tv with oled the reason why I've come from the Panasonic st60 with had one of the best contrasts amd black level around going from that to any l.e.d will be like down grading in picture quialty 4k or nor, led = light bleed chalky blacks no thank you I'm going to pass on this and wait for a oled 4k or quantom dot
Looks like it's gone back to almost £2k?
Also if you order this direct at your local Panasonic store they can do home delivery for £20
About time. All these people banging on about getting an OLED when there's only one at present.
7 new 4k OLED coming out between end of March and June
People going on about OLED TV's. Isn't there just one LG OLED? Any others?
Blimey, that is cheap! :-o
Seriously tempting that is.
This TV is now £1,799, that's some reduction in a month!
Well OLED tech certainly has the advantage with deeper black levels, although the FALD technology in this Panasonic makes it superior to any other LCD in this respect. Obviously the LG has a lower resolution, although given the available content at the moment that's hardly a massive issue. On most other fronts the Panny is a better set in my opinion, stronger colours, better motion and a wider viewing angle (which is why I personally dislike curved TVs). I do really like the LG though, and it's a beautiful piece of tech, no question.
Better than the LG curved OLED? . Ok it wasnt 4k but man that tv was impressive in currys (yes i know it was in demo mode).
I want this so bad... Shame it's not suppoted by Amazon :-( Netflix is supported tho
I just called my local Panasonic store and they matched the Doncaster price. Saved myself the £40 delivery fee and I can pick it up later today. WIN
The two larger models have just had another £100 knocked off them. 58" at £1549 is pretty tempting.
No problems, hope you enjoy it! :)
Stretched and I pick up the TV tomorrow, cheers op.
Wait until November when the AX 902 series comes out and the AX 802 will drop in price. All these best buy websites bit of a con according to many.
Sorry, was being honest! I doubt you will find a better price with a 6 year warranty and 0% finance though!
Just about the best TV Available at the moment though!
How to lose any heat your deal may have attracted! lol
"£1,679 (we paid £1,599 last week)" Sales pitch of the year!
Price went up by £50.00 :(
Available here, linkage, 1p cheaper if Cardiff is too far people.
Is there any reason why this is cold, cheaper anywhere else?
What a no brainer... You could use that deal to price match john Lewis etc as this is genuine shop. Price will go back up in few weeks time...
Why cold? probably one of the best 42" led tvs HD sat tuner, freeview HD tuner £849 in john lewis and other places dont get confused with the ET model
That's correct, which is why I put the et version :)
I forgot to mention that they can arrange delivery- I live circa 100miles away from Cardiff and it was free delivery :)
Scarlet Johansson would look good looking through six feet of mud.
Got the 42" version of this. Amazing TV
the Panasonic LEDs got poor reviews on hdtvtest.co.uk which has great objective reviews.
Hot. Bought this yesterday at richer sounds. Practically the same deal but 1 year less guarantee. Anyone got any views on the free blu ray player? I don't know whether to open it and keep it or eBay it!
Was thinking of the 60" Samsung plasma for £999 any views on that?
Thank you. Very helpful - just had the price match confirmed.
Bennetts have it at £799.99 and they have a promo code for 10% off all older stock (which this set is) so the price is £719.99 delivered. It would only come with 12mos warranty though, but if you live in East Anglia you might be able to do a click and collect which *might* qualify for the 5 year Panny extended warranty offer they are currently running with many dealers. See the code "Extra10" towards the bottom of this page - http://www.bennettsonline.co.uk/page/how-to-order FWIW I have a JL price match at this price (which adds the 5year JL warranty). However it seems a bit hit and miss whether JL will do this. I mentined this over on the Hot 50GT50 deal thread to try and help some folks who bought at JL save some cash but their experiences have been mixed. See msg 103 onwards here - https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/panasonic-viera-tx-p50gt50b-only-799-95-with-5-year-warranty-john-lewis-1535875?page=6#post17932844 HTH
Can't find it as low as that in price. Did JL pricematch?
Meant to post it on Saturday but you beat me to it. JL price matched the 50" version within 6 hours, delivery on Wednesday. Another review here heat added of course
FWIW if you can pick one up at the Panastore at this price then you'll get the 5 year manufacturer warranty rather than JL's own one. I have a price request into JL atm for this set at £720. If you have a look around you can have it without the warranty delivered for £720. Am not having much luck with recent JL price matches so who knows..... Might have to call the Panastores and see if they'll do it at £720. :)
6 year warranty and an excellent price! Tried 4 panasonic shops in the S Wales area. Only 1 would match, but without the Intrest free and the others would not because of their "fit and setting up" policy oO
I bought this a few months ago for the same price from the Doncaster store, I also bought a sound system & 3D bluray player from them. The panasonic stores give a panasonic 5yr warranty with their TV's, the last time I went to the Sheffield store they were giving a 6yr warranty. The Pano stores will price match & they give interest free credit, IMO, no one else will beat their offers. Play the stores against each other. The Leicester store gave me the best price, then I purchased from my local Doncaster store as they price matched. Do a bit of research and make a few phone calls & you may end up with a better deal. The TV is cracking, read the reviews.
just enter panasonic store sheffield on google and it takes you straight to the site
its on the website fella,phone wont let me upload receipt
Tempted to upgrade my 3 year old 50" G30 while panny plasmas are still around http://www.fudzilla.com/home/item/30816-will-panasonic-end-plasma-production
I think the 6 year warranty (over SuperFi's 12 month) is worth having (for the extra £112). As for new models, most retailers will anticipate this and stock accordingly. I hope your wait and see tactic works out for you.
Still too dear for the TXP55VT50B which is the one everyone wants. Guy in SuperFi Manchester said I could have their ex display model for £1500 when they release the ZT series in May. Still don't fancy that offer either. I reckon all brand new VT models will drop when the ZT and other 2013 models are released in a couple of months. | Just waiting for that now.
It's a fair concern but all these items come with their full warranties (the TVs have an exclusive 6 year manufacturer's warranty) and items such as cameras/vaccum cleaners/microwaves etc do not get much use.
I think i'd want more than 25% off something that could of been running all day every day for months.
Sorry, should have said the stores are in the South West of England but offering free delivery UK mainland.
Super TV looking to get one , Plasma are not like what they used to be . Big chunky taking lots of power and giving heat that heated your room up. Now they take half the power and are nearly as slim as some LCD LED TV's. They have always been better For STANDARD TV and have the best blacks dark scenes have much more detail than lcd led tv, come out naturally. 5mil to 1 contrast ratio. Just 0.01 Lag times for GAMING too WOW!! st50 is also highly recommended too. People need to read more about tv's. let the 4k tv come then we can start talking !!
You still got robbed on the HDMI leads though :p A £50 HDMI lead will give no better picture than a £5 HDMI lead. It eithers works or it doesn't.
:p I've just got bought this TV from the Doncaster Panasonic store, I did my homework and they did a price match, I got: Panasonic TV 50GT50 £899 with 5yr warrants and 2 x 3D glasses by redemption. 3D Bluray DMP-BDT 120EB £79 Cinema System HTB550EBK £299 3 x £50 HDMI leads £20 each Total £1327 I also did my homework in selecting the items I bought, this is a quality system and in my opinion, the best system at the best price without going up in price for other Panasonic items. Yes, they probably will go down in price again, but hey, i'm happy. I am over the moon with this system.
Please read a bit more before commenting. Plasma is far superior than LCD/LED.
You are joking, this is one of the best TVs around.
its been at £1799 at TPS for a few weeks now http://www.tps.uk.com/tps/home.html?product_id=1384&product_group_id=222&choice_id=135&tab_id=52&page_name=product Admittedly 5 year warranty... You do get 3d glasses as well
im not greedy, all i want is 60" . my living room is only 12 feet long, but when you pop a porn in, its like your there. underpants folded neatly over the right arm.
No this definitely isn't everyone's cup of tea but for comparison the next cheapest price is £1999 with a 5 year warranty and 2 pairs of glasses. This is £100 less with 6 years and 2 pairs... Hot deal!
$1700 in the states, why do us brits get ripped off .,.,.,.,.,.,
What the hell do you do with a tv this big, put it at the end of the garden and watch it from the patio. oO
haha this tv is only £799 on john lewis and you get 5 year warranty with them
Its £899 at the panasonic store now (link above) JL will price match and several peeps on here have confirmed this. I also got them to price match the panasonic 3D dvd player which I paid £69.99 for but is now £50 at B&N which im told they will also price match ;-) Hope this helps as its a superb TV panel
If John Lewis say that its Totaldigital is an internet only shop and they will only match on proper actual shops then use the Panasonic store in Leicester as reference http://www.panasonicstore-leicester.co.uk/product/tx-p50gt50b/ £919.99 and that’s also with a 5yr warranty as from any panna store.
For everyone who wants it for 913 + 2 pair of glasses + 5 years warranty + free delivery from John Lewis (confirmed today), simply ask to match up price with TotalDigital: http://www.totaldigital.biz/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=43_51&products_id=4359 They will!
There a official Panasonic store I've bought 2 tvs from them over last couple of year excellent staff no there stuff and free delivery
That's a cheap store... :P
it's true though, a lot sony / apple fans on here are blinkered to any other product being possibly any good. Look at the threads for sony tv's the amount of trolls saying you can't buy a better tv. despite the fact sony outsource most their tv production and apple you're just paying for the brand. Panasonic is a great brand, and given the right price / functionality / picture quality / sound quality i would buy one. But look on avforums, lots of people have gone from panasonic plasmas to samsung plasmas and found the samsung ones better. The bottom line is none of these companies care about any of us, we are just a revenue stream for them. Brand loyality is just crazy imo . Buy the cheapest / most functional one you can afford whoever makes it.
the vt50 is simply lush... Richer sounds has it for 1699 so this is HOT!
How desperate are you for 'likes' - seems to have worked so far though lol I'm an Apple fan, but the only Samsung TV's in my house are the ones I'm repairing - Panasonic all the way please. PS. - it's adviCe
Awesome TV voted hot!
i am in love with the sony bravia hx8 55 inch model. We will be together. slightly cheaper and 5 year warranty from john lewis.
Samsung fan boys will never understand a truly quality TV, only bling bling TVs. If they ever looked at a quality panel like the VT series, they would just call it expensive and walk back to their over saturated colours.
Fantastic price! Well found, heat added.
Richersounds have the same TV for £1050, but that is without the 5 year warranty of course
Have a look at the WT series...even more expensive...
agree expensive for what it is
