Good player. Mkv files play like a dream. Thumbdrive and hardrive plays through USB port. 1tb Hardrive played all files no bother .... And wired to Internet as the wireless dongle costs about £40.
No doubt that this will be a stunning telly, but when you can get branded HD ready plasma tv's for £350 and upwards, this seems like a lot extra for the extra features. We have a 42" Panasonic HD ready plasma bought for £550 two years ago and it is still a great HD picture. I have seen the same tv for around £350 at Amazon recently.
looks like plasma is back, plasma as the best picture quality but is dearer on electic, plasma is a rich mans tv but you have to pay for quality i suppose. if you like quality then go for plasma. oh buy the way plasma is also the best for 3D,
The swivel angle on these is only +/- 15 degrees - you need to be looking at +/- 17 degrees at the very least at this price level!
I have voted hot. I think people are voting cold because it's not a Kindle or the usual ignorant one about buying a paperback for a fiver. However, I have both the latest Kindle and one of these and the Sony is the one I prefer to read on.
Hot deal dont know why it is going cold?? these are still £150 on the sony website and i paid £115 on ebay for one a while back. same price on waterstones clicky me
both are correct, it is HD ready at 720p, if you want 1080p you need to look out for full HD, or the 1080P logo, which I would recomend at this screen size
Prefer this for the money - https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/samsung-ps50c450-50-inch-widescreen-hd-ready-600hz-plasma-tv-with-freeview-amazo/891973
Title on the page says "HD Ready". Description says "Resolution 1,024 x 768 (16:9)" ...
Expensive for older model. I got Freesat HD Box (for free!) after purchasing 32" model at Christmas.Not sure if still available.
It's an old model. LG never got round to supplying a firmware update for BBC iplayer, but they were giving away a free-standing Freesat HD box (Humax, I think) to owners on request, as compensation.
I think you'll find that you will only qualify for the 5 year guarantee if you purchase this TV instore only. I bought this set for only £20 more from PRC and also purchased the 3D Game Bundle for an extra £249 but they have sold out, I bought the last one!
£30 delivery should be added to price.
Meh. Can't recommend
Nice find! Heat added!!
So to watch 3d, you need to buy a transmitter and then the glasses.
I know that the NX703 is better and has 5 year warranty but it's £50 more.
The KDL40NX703U is available for £599 including delivery and a 5 year warranty which makes this look a bit expensive although it is a good price for this model. KDL40NX703U deal
is this mr for dvd?
[quote=Burty]Internet@tv is usless nothing on it worth having yet. Samsung keep saying iplayer etc will be working in the near future. Other than that I have no complaints it hooks up nicely with your PC to stream divx movies, music and pics. It also works with portable hard drives formatted to NTFS which my Sony bdp370 blu ray doesn't, I also haven't managed to stream video to the Sony - probably my fault?. Sony's iplayer actually works already though. So in my opinion both have shortfalls but I like them both in their own way, but this 1 also does 3D :-)[/quote Iplayer works for me? As does youtube and facebook etc... Would like to see 4OD and internet browser capabilities though... Use it quite often. Oh and DLNA is a blessing if you have a home server! Brilliant once set up, but my god, what a pain in the rear to set up!!! Plays virtually any type of video over a home network (just rename the file to .AVI and use windows media library instead of Samsungs DLNA App, which is a Very poor app in my opinion. It is too simplistic and does not support many codecs).
3D is failed
Glad i sold mine on ebay that i got free with my TV for £110 last week now :) Heat added
Does the Samsung play .m2ts and AVCHD files off the NTFS ext. Hdd?
how the hell did i find this?! was browsing on my phone and it popped up... i thought what the hell!
Lol I posted this last Christmas!
Awful deal, this is not last years model, but the year befire thats model, shoul be no mordthan 300... Im suprised anyone even has stock, cold from me... Wil do a decent enough job but this is not a good price
To be honest the best deal in my opinion John Lewis at £699 as it comes with 5 year guarantee and they where doing a blu ray player as well for about £30-40 more. That is before vat back as well and if you buy now in store and the price drops they will refund the difference.
Hi Bernal. I want to get the 40EX503 and have been trying to wait to get it at a good price. Where's the cheapest that you've seen it?
Having seen them both side-by-side, pay the extra and get the Sony HX803 - it knocks spots of the Samsung in 2D and 3D and comes with a free 5 year guarantee.
Thats not actually correct. The use of LED rather then CCFL backlight produces the "fantastic colours". Again this assumes the quality of the LED's used is such that they produce a larger and more consistant gamut when compared to CCFL backlighting. Theoretically the best backlighting technology would be RGB LED which requires no filters, followed by LED then CCFL. The fibre optics/reflective panel are used to distribute the light produced by the LED's accross the screen and is used by all edge lit panels to my knowledge.
Cheers :) Not bought yet , been busy today but got new TV cabinet coming tommorow ! , as wont fit on current one. Yay :)
just typed in ue46c8000 on youtube and theres a video on there of the shop looks pretty impressive too heres the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SljpGGRdry0
hours are mon to sat 9am till 7pm
Cheers , Much appreciated :) Will Do !!
I'd also rather deal with Amazon because if there are any problems Amazon are really good and helpful. Other companies can sometimes be quite difficult if you want to return something even when faulty.
Slightly cheaper @1st Audio Video http://www.1staudiovisual.co.uk/catalog/samsung-ps50c580-inch-600hz-full-plasma-p-102462.html?affiliate=33eaff6a8f2e498e990b85306b64c9c4& if it helps anybody £623.92 delivered. Quite a nice deal for a Freeview HD TV - but for the money I would still be going for the LG 50PK590 everytime ...
Looks like a heck of a lot of tv for the money, but can be had a few quid more at amazon, and would prefer dealing with a company that I know will return stuff no questions asked.
Surely it's in a big box that has 'Samsung Plasma TV' all over it :s
I got mine delivered on Friday from them ordered it on Monday excellent tv.Would check its okay before signing for it as the delivery driver said it was banging about the van as he had no where to tie up in the van and didn't know it was a tv.
I can't find any link I posted here to that site - the only one is from the OP. There site is strange, when asked to register for a login they ask for your date of birth which no other online retailer in the 12 years I have been buying extensively on the net has ever asked for. Either it's some bad programming that the site remembers the last person logging on and lets the next person see their details or it is a scam site?
Supergran... We need more people like you on these forums... Can't find the rep button anymore so just "liked" your post!
Yes me, how did you see it? [/quote] The link you put in had a unique session ID in it so when I went through the order process it pulled up your details. I put in a request to hotukdeals to remove the session information from the link then realised that I could just log you out from the site which I did so all is now ok.[/quote] Strange what link did I put in?

Good spec. Shame its not 1080p
+£30 delivery maybe that should go in Title of thread?
Good review ]here (Review translated.
purchased :oops::oops: Saw it in currys at the weekend. I must say that it looked better than the 1080p LCD sitting next to it. colours were more crisp and i preferred the look of the tv. Hopefully i can use my older LG remote for it though as the new ones look terrible!
Err, totally wrong, I think you need to do a bit more research.
What is old tech?? Plasma or this particular model??:?
cold plasma only 720p this is old tech and here in the UK we just love old outdated technology.
^ Yes using the native resolution matters a lot, but the necessary screen size is dependant on where you sit. My screen may only be 22", but because I sit a few feet away every pixel is very clear. If you can see every pixel, clearly the amount of pixels is determining the detail you can see.
Do you know if it charges the second generation Ipod Touch?
I've got one of these and I'm quite happy with it. The USB and iPod docks work well, it haqs a good reputation for DVD playing quality. I use itmainly for providing quality sound from my TV via the optical input connection. I'm glad I spent an extra £50 over the 300watt model, as this is only just loud enough at times, so that model must be underpowered. I paid £198 delivered from Dixons.co.uk in November, so this only offer only just beats that, but I'm happy to recommend the system....
pfft one of those annoying retailers that dont let you right click on page looks pretty ugly imo from that picture - would have checked others but too lazy to do other than right click to copy
I have one of these boxed and in my garage, purchased in error as I was after (and now have) a TY-S50PZ80W. If anyone isnt able to get one of these then PM me and I'll stick it on the For Sale / trade section.
Go nicely with the 50" Panny on offer atm. Still available.
Could anyone who has this confirm the dimensions of the shelves please, particularly the depth? I've got a media centre which is W43/D43/H18cm and I'm concerned it won't fit. Looks a bargain for anyone without such a beast of a media centre though!
I pondered this for many a week, then went for it. I have also purchased this to go with a different Panasonic model, the TX-P50U10B as i thought it was worth the punt to potentially write off £69 to get a £200-£500 stand. Order went through no problem, took a long time to update the status, after a week i phoned and they told me it would be delivered in two days time between 3pm and 6pm. Delivery was accepted at 14.55! Construction was straight forward, and, as original poster said, the brackets were a different size. What the original poster failed to mention was how f**king difficult is was to get the screws out :-) 3 out no major problem molegrips/phillips screwdriver combo after failing to loosen by normal hand strength, then an hour of swearing, WD40, hairdrier to heat the metal, Dremmel to drill out the now ruined screwhead, i finally won the battle with the 4th! No problem for the mounting and the whole stand rolls very smoothley over the laminate requiring no effort. Looks good, has a small gap (1cm at most) between top endge of stand and bottom edge of TV which I would assume the correct model would have fitted snug, but really not noticable in my opinion.
Yes sorry missed that :( shame
I have the Panasonic TY S42PX TV cabinet for sale - unopened and fully boxed. £40 and what ever it takes for postage through Paypal if anyone is interested Thanks
does anyone know if this will fit the TH46pz85?
As per my earlier post, the Panasonic dealer told me it doesn't fit any of the current 'G' models which is why it is being discontinued and at a cheap price.
anyone know if this will fit the 46 g15?
i was going to buy this today when it was £205 but the price has gone up this afternoon to £229 so I won't be buying it anymore!
i can vouch for the htsf1200. i have the cheaper version (cost £250 at the time though) that uses smaller satellite speakers with the same av unit. i really like it. not the best for playing cd music through as it lacks anything between the tinnys and the thumping bass, but films are great. a nice touch is that it comes with a little microphone that you can position where you sit and it automatically sets the volume and distance levels for each speaker. sweet. i did look at the other sony unit posted but i wanted asthetics too- i needed something with a similar height to my other stuft so went for the sony. it looks good too.
has been this price for months but is a good price, + £10 delivery as well
If its the panasonic warranty then it has to be bought instore to be valid
Has anybody actually bought this TV online from Total Digital as the 37" model states that you need to pick it up instore to claim the 5 year warranty, as this is the same Panasonic Warranty I wonder if it is actually just a mistake on the website and you will only get a 1 year warranty, if purchasing make sure and take a screenshot of this offer.
:) was waiting for the price to drop to 699... but I live in Bham! really tempted-again, shop on Soho rd. :( big disadvantage..... would go for 719, but again, won't fit in S60!!!!!!!!!!!! get a 6-seater cab will cost like 15 quid to Digbeth.... what should I do???? :) p.s. I'm talking about pz80 btw
Not on TVs you don't.
awsome tv but i paid £600 in richer sounds and was quoted £730 for the pz model.
pity its not 1080p
nice 1 sale

Okay this annoys me somewhat as I posted a deal from Play.com which was £829.99 delivered, £5 voucher plus quidco, making it around £792 mark. It didn't get voted hot! https://www.hotukdeals.com/item/203505/samsung-40-le40a656-hd-1080p-824-99 You should also note that it is now available at Dixons at £799.99 - 3% quidco - 5% EGG! Plus the opportunity to buy a WII for £129. That makes it around the £730 mark. I have just taken delivery of mine, that was at a higher price but a quick call and they matched the new price AND let me have a WII which my mate wanted off me. I was going to post this deal but thought I'd check around first and saw this thread hot and thought I'd mention it here rather than duplicate the information. Can't wait to get it up and running, SKY HD being installed on Wednesday! :w00t:
Not sure if people like/trust the large companies out there (especially with the typically unknowledgeable staff there!), but I noticed that Comet are doing a couple of what appear to be good deals... ]Samsung 40" digital full HD 1080p LCD TV and Samsung 5.1 DVD home cinema system with HDMI connection Or ]Samsung 40" digital full HD 1080p LCD TV and Samsung high definition Blu-ray player Both at that magical £999 pricepoint. No idea if the players are good or not. Only noticed a lack of upscaling on the Bluray mentioned. No mention on DVD player, so suspect that it doesn't have that facility. Mind you, by all accounts the TV does such a good job with SD signals, upscaling on peripherals might be a mute point. Not having tried or seen it in action, I daren't say. If anyones got a clue whether this is a good deal or an extra £140 wasted, let me know! (Oh and I noticed my local tesco had a nice Sony HDD / DVD recorder for £150ish that has 1080P upscaling, so that may be a better bet, along with the cheaper price in the OP)
Even tho it's now gone up in price to £863 I'm sorely tempted....
I actually have this exact TV. Its amazing! Such a good upgrade! I put some pictures on ]Flickr if anyone is interested
It should be mentioned also that delivery is £20.00
LOL, no worries mate. You win some you lose some I guess. :-D
Didn't realise about the five year warrenty.. Not a bad deal then..:oops:
Ah well, I tried. Still the best price including the warranty though.... :oops:
£384 including delivery ]HERE........ Nice avatar BTW...:thumbsup:
A good deal for a 37" top quality plasma. Ordered one on Thursday PM, it arrived next day at the time they specified. Great service. Picture is fantastic, even with Sky+ SD and Freeview. Much, much better than an equivalent LCD (controversial I know!!!) Great find PGW, thanks
good price for a decent make, but i think this is quite an old plasma now, 2 generations old i think.....px7, then the px70 (rated as the best 37in tv), now the px80 which has just come out
[QUOTE=crazymonkey;1582120]................. You can buy a BIGGER and better TV for that price, e.g. Sony Bravia 46" X Series... I have seen places like Digital Direct doing it for a 100 or so quid more. LOL :whistling: ever watched sd tv on a bravia? Say no more....
I was just giving a simple answer... but yes you are right to correct me on that. Reading on the reviews; "Inevitably, we have made some comparisons, the ace up the Panasonic TH42PZ700's sleeve being Full HD native resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels whereas the Pioneer PDP-428XD has a 1,024 x 768 format. The extra pixels allow the TH42PZ700 to resolve every detail of 1080i and 1080p sources, rather than scaling these pictures to fit". BUT reading on the reviews; Conclusion A If you want to pull this Pioneer straight out of the box and have little or no interest in 'tinkering' with its performance then the PDP-4280XD will make an ideal high end choice. The extra features offered by the PDP-428XD will appeal to the TV enthusiasts out there, not necessarily those of you who enjoyed poking a screwdriver into the back of your old CRT, but those of you interested in the technicalities of getting the very best picture from your plasma. The Pioneer PDP-4280XD has given us all the feeling that the days of CRT outperforming plasma with SD sources are numbered. The PDP-428XD is not quite there yet, but the difference is negligible, and with HD sources the PDP-4280XD in our opinion brings you the ultimate home viewing experience. Conclusion B Inevitably, comparisons will be made between the TH42PZ700 and the similarly priced Pioneer PDP-428XD. For all round performance including standard as well as high definition the Pioneer is the one to choose, but as the centrepiece of your HD home cinema, the TH42PZ700 is a serious contender. So... Do you go; Full HD native resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels or 1,024 x 768 format... I'm going to have to find a high street shop that sells both and take it from there lol Pioneer PDP-428XD http://www.digitaldirect.co.uk/products_moreinfo3/index.asp?product_id=13545 BEST PRICE (so far) £1379.91 but would have to buy a cabinet also
Please, try not to mis-inform. This is incorrect. The main differences: - the PZ700 has an extra HDMI at the front - the PZ700 has PiP - the PZ700 has much better speakers, 20w SRS TruSurroundXT speakers as opposed to the 10w stereo
LOL!!!!! its really not mate! The pioneer kuro range are the best of the best. forget 1080p as its impossible to tell from normal viewing distance the difference in resolution on a 42" screen! Its a great screen the panny, but its not better than the pioneer 428xd for picture quality straight and simple!
Which http://www.which.co.uk/reports_and_campaigns/audio_visual/reports/television/watching/lcd_and_plasma_tvs/pp_excel_546_120762.jsp Panasonic http://www.panasonic.co.uk/plasma-tv/th-42pz700b/index.htm Make sure when you search - the price is NOT for the; TH-42PX700CAB or the TH-42PX70CAB And that is is the TH-42PZ700CAB The full list can be found here; http://www.panasonic.co.uk/plasma-tv/index.htm
Just be careful with these HD TV's, cause there is two main different quality of HD, which is 720i&p then there's 1080i&p. If you get this tv is can only display 720i so already it's a bit out dated, tv's which can display both are a few hundred more, like the samsung 40" F71, which is also blueray compatible, but their going for around £1180.
We got this tv a few weeks ago. Its good but the picture quality is not as good as the other Sony Bravia that we have which is the 2010 model. That to be honest did cost a little bit more than this one.
Anyone actually got this tv? If so can you tell me what its like? Thnx
That's a great price for it :) Total Digital will price match too, so could get it from either ;-) Thanks for the pointer.

O.K. thanks Rayman
Unfortunately this was posted in another thread yesterday, but is a good deal. Hopefully this won't deter you from posting further deals you find! Welcome to HUKD by the way :)
