Simple: use black electrical tape on the frame and cut to fit. Easily removed and so will not void warranty.
Easily removed without a trace, too (cheeky)
And void the warranty
Absolute bargain, you won't get a 100hz panel with local dimming on a VA panel for this sort of price often. Well done for all those who have been patient waiting for stock on this one
Paint it whatever colour you want. It's fairly simple to do.
Cool I will have to look into this
Luckily i have a friend in the industry so it didn't cost me anything, i believe he says its around £350 though. Had i not seen the the difference first hand i'd have been dubious about paying that amount of money but honestly the difference is incredible. I now have 2 modes ISF Day & ISF Night. Night covers 1080p up to normal 4K, Day covers 4K HDR
I got this TV January 2017. Sport movies and gaming is amazing. It was better than the some first wave OLED tv's.
They probably had 1 or 2 in stock to begin with. these were discontinued long ago.
That isn’t the same TV, that’s the edge-lit and vastly inferior 802b.
Id rather pay the extra £99 for something that wasn't previously faulty / rejected.
I got one of these a few weeks ago, aside from a small blemish on the rear of the set it was spotless. TV is excellent, sure it has FALD which I like.
Out of stock now.
don't get the 700, its rubbish I paid £1100 for this TV 11 months ago :(
proper info,cheers mate.
wanna send me a couple pairs mate?? 8)
Massively agree with the super reflective screen. Blinds are drawn all the time the tv is on. Really enjoying it though. Thinking of turning my room round to accommodate the reflective screen. (lol)
At that size you won't tell the difference between RGBW and full 4k unless you are viewing VERY close. Focus on the other factors and features.
Sorry mate, a misunderstanding :)
Dolby Vision firmware update is out now
My point is that it’s everything from the DAC onwards (the analogue outputs etc). In a 4K blu ray player like this, where the information leaving the player is EXACTLY the raw digital data that was on the disc (and assuming the transport is at least capable of reading that data, which isn’t asking much), then all players are equal. In this case it’s exactly like a computer hard drive - if all the bits get through, the file loads; if they don’t , it doesnt. Your MP3 files would have no more ‘colour’ or ‘presence’ with a better hard drive.
It's alot more than the dac..... And anyone that puts a £40 cd player in a hi end system needs shooting.
This isn't a 4k player, it won't be able to read 4k discs. This is just an upscaler.
So reading the comments IF there is no difference between 4K players can I buy this https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/samsung-bd-j6300-smart-3d-4k-upscaling-blu-ray-player-w-wi-fi-8495-magicvision-2912406 and save myself over £100 with no loss of picture quality?
Good for grubby workshop tho
29p - CR2015 battery 51p - 3.5mm jack cable 96p - C7 power cable UK plug 82p - TOSlink cable 92p - 2x wall screws Spending more than this driving to couple ASDAs on wild goose chase. Priceless.
Great for a home-build Alexa using raspberry pi though.
Should be national. Previously it was scanning for £8.75 and people have found it nationwide https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/polaroid-bluetooth-tv-sound-bar-was-originally-35-then-15-scanning-for-875-many-other-electrical-items-including-x-display-tvs-were-less-than-half-price-to-clear-from-the-shelves-at-asda-in-store-2922960
Save your money lads seriously not worth it. Bearly any higher quality than standard TV speakers so you will just end up throwing in a skip someday
Can anyone help? I am trying to determine if my TV is faulty or if it is simply a design limitation in this model. I am having issues with the aspect ratio when watching most 3D content in that it seems to stretch the image vertically to fill the entire screen, i.e. ignoring the aspect ratio, and it does not seem possible to change the aspect ratio at all. Questions 1. When watching any 3D content, can you alter the aspect ratio, i.e cycle through any of auto, 16:9, 4:3, zoom? If so what sources are you using? (USB stick with files, Blu-ray, PS3/PS4 etc). 2. When using 2D to 3D conversion i.e, just broadcast TV such as channel 4/5, can you change the aspect ratio at all when in 3D? I can change aspect ratio in 2D, but not when it is being converted to 3D. 3. Are you able to change the aspect ratio when watching Amazon prime using the built in Panasonic app? 4. Are you able to activate 2D to 3D conversion when watching content in amazon prime video? Thanks for any help on this.
No. There isn't a proper market for em.
wait most likely it will go up but if it doesn't call it bad luck as it counts as bonus. ...
Has anyone's Curry Quidco tracked at the correct level? Mine is still at £7.50.
Are they making 3d TVs again then?
If you're happy with your current monitor I'd say stick with it. I've a 28" 1080P 144hz myself and I sit about 2 ft from it. I can't see any pixels and the image looks decent to me. The only downer perhaps is the lack of HDR but I'll hang on for now also - there are a number of HDR monitors on the way and hopefully prices will come down ;)
No, not if you're happy with your current monitor. All comes down to personal preference. If you're not noticing the individual pixels then it really won't make too much difference, and you'll be more annoyed about the 3 inch loss to the screen. Lots of people have 1080p 27" monitors and are happy with them, all comes down to personal preference.
I've also heard this. Depends how close you sit to the screen though. If you're close a 24" will be better.
Would if make sense for me to sell my 27 inch 144hz 1080p monitor for a 24 inch 144hz one like this one? I've heard that 27 inches is a bit big for 1080 and I would get much better graphical fidelity at 1080p with a 24 incher.
Put that up also in Miscellaneous, as a topic for 'Discussion', etc ... You'll be surprise what sort of information source may come forth from that?. :-)
I can't figure out how to get this linked up to my Techwood TV. I bought the 3.5mm to Aux adapter but even when I use it, it doesn't work. Can't seem to make it work by fiddling around with the settings either. Can anyone help me please?
And not Sony price's either ...
They are in Asda Watford at £8.75
The price is random by store, yours is at the top end. £12 in my local store but has already been posted on here at another store for £9. Link here
Bound to be top quality
I have this player, it’s decent. Have to say tho it’s upscaling is a bit of a copout, if you’re looking for that 4K quality buy a 4K player or and Xbox One S/X. My player is in the kids room.
Is dolby vision something you should look for then if wanting to purchase a 4k player that will upscale blu days / dvds but also have a good performance with 4k disks?
Not worth the money as has been said a 4k UHD TV will upscale better thus making this redundant, stick to current Blu Ray player or upgrade to a 4K UHD player such as the UBD-K8500. I have this player paired to Samsung 4K TV and its looks very good with real 4k blu ray discs. The Revenant looks great and Independence Day is more grainy (apparently this is how they wanted it) Also with the UBD-K8500 it has twin HDMI out, good for those such as me whos av receiver does not pass through 4k, therefore one hdmi cable to the TV and the other to the av receiver, therefore benefit from watching 4k and still benefit from lossless sound (DTS HD MA, Dolby true HD and LPCM) a good website to see if 4K UHD disks are actually 4K or just tarted up blu ray is www.realorfake4k.com which explains which ones a re shot in 4K and which are just upscaled blu rays
Yes, its a good price for this particular BR player, and I normally subscribe to the "If its a good price for this product, and will heat the voting even if I don't want the product" philospohy. However voting hot for this is like voting hot for a scammer, just coz he swindled you out of less money than a different scammer. I'm afraid this is very cold for me. A better HD BR player can be had for less, and, as pointed out above a proper UHD BR player can be had for not much more. This doesn't offer anything that a decent normal BR player doesn't do. Any 4k TV set will upscale an HD picture to UHD.
Thanks for your reply mate. Another question; I notice this particular 4k player doesn't have dolby vision. Is this something you should have in a 4k player going forward?
Active 3d glasses
That strange pattern hasn't reappeared since set up so I am fairly confident that it was part of the background image itself that was part of the demo. That said, I will bear in mind your comments. I don't suppose anyone else who bought it having seen this thread/your deal will bother to respond but if anyone else pops in to read the comments and reads this before setting theirs up perhaps they can check and let me know. I have completed all the calibration settings now and am delighted with the picture, it is even better than the top end Panasonic plasma set it replaces, love it.
I cannot recall what the EX700 did. You could look, or ask on AV Forums as they have a EX750 owners club thread. Maybe the demo you mention is on the Panasonic website or on YouTube. At least it went after the demo. Worth finding out in case it is a fault with specific colours and movement on your set, in that area of the screeen. Can you re-run the demo again to view it more closely as to what is happening? You could maybe factory reset and put in shop mode to see what the shop demo looks like on your TV. You've got 12 months cover with Panasonic for it.
Thanks thetarget I ordered and received mine today, just set it up. Not tested every socket or feature but initial impressions are positive, the tv seems to be unmarked. The only mark is to the pole height adjuster which has a scratch that is hidden behind the tv when fitted. The chrome stand base is new, the tv appears to be new or good as and even has the sticker protector still over the word Panasonic at the bottom. I will adjust calibration settings etc over the weekend in line with the avforums YouTube video and test it properly. I noticed a strange pattern around the bottom right corner of the screenas it went through the set up/demo and thought I had a duff but it seems to be part of the demo image itself and gives the impression of liquid leaking under the glass like you often notice on a broken laptop screen but it vanished as soon as the demo finished. Very strange if this is part of the demo video, not very professional but just be aware and don't panic if you see it when you set yours up.
One of the only big names with 3D this year. Cool stand. If my budget had been tighter, I'd have gone with this TV. Just not as bright as the leading HDR TVs so didn't make my cut.
My uncle once had a Ford that was always breaking down, I would never buy a Ford. lol
I am an engineer maybe not in TVs but I know how things work. During the euro football these screens was used and nearly all binned due to failures. Was a massive container full going to scrap. I manage to make 1 out of all the parts and found that the light strip burnt out and stopped the whole thing working. Light strips these days not the cheapest or easiest to get your hands on. Repair requires stripping down the whole tv which takes lot of time, hours if never don't it before. I have some space part for mine so not very much worried as I can always replace the led strip. Iv changed it twice so far in my screen which makes it a serious fault these models These are great TVs but as a caution to all that have this screens insure it as it will be peace of mind knowing it's not scrap when it's dead. I'm not trying to say not to get it just be cautious
Might see if I can sell my 58" quickly
Are you a TV engineer then ? How many have you seen in total & over how long a period ?
It depends on how you long you have the tv. Iv seen plenty of the 650b and 750b in the dx ranges all suffer from 1 blink light error which is that one of the strips of cheap led lights has failed. So just adding my word of caution to all who have any in this range just be sure to insure.
John Lewis have price matched this. Thank you :)
Nobody likes a showoff (highfive)
The EX750B will probably be the last 3D tv made (unless 3D tv's make a comeback in future years)
Nothing wrong with my 32inch PYE Colour too!
Thought they stopped making 3D TVs
Looks like Hughes just dropped their prices, listed price is £829 so after sc55 code it's going to be £774. Surely a better deal than AO?
I'm not a Sony fanboy. I just like getting the best for my money, where you clearly don't. You can't compare a phone to a television, e tirely different production arms! I've had a Sony TV in my spare room for 5 years with a grand total of 0 problems, hardly unreliable? The article you linked is for the 65 inch model, which could be totally different, doesn't say it's 10 bit or 8+frc so you still haven't proved your false point and the article even states the mu7000 or Sony xe90 is better, so... What was your point exactly? That i was right???, as you can see it's been given 4 stars, here is the Sony review.. http://www.trustedreviews.com/reviews/sony-kd-55xe9005 I rest my case. Enjoy your Panasonic (:I
I'm not comparing phones I am stating how unreliable Sony technology is! It's 10 bit. Not arguing with a Sony fanboy. Go argue with yourself in a locked room or summin
where have you seen sony and Samsung are most returned?
So having just been to Currys to have a browse my heart was on the oled b7 but the q led sat next to it for 1299 looks so more vibrant ? Decisions !!
Not missing the point, but I have an LG OLED that's a year older than this range and haven't seen a single problem. I came to OLED from a Panasonic Viera plasma which I loved due to black levels but the OLED is way better. I used to get some image retention on the Plasma - like seeing a DOG or similar for a few minutes after changing channel, or stopping gaming - but have never seen anything on the OLED and viewing hours are longer now due to two growing kids using it more in the day time. I never saw screen burn on either my Plasma or my OLED, but I did see "demo" TVs with some screen burn. Not the case with OLED, never seen a fault in person.
Paid £2100 for this TV last year! It's a stunning TV.
You are missing the point. People are experiencing issues from day to day use, not just the extreme tests they are running in the 1st link. The 2nd run of tests will be the most useful as it features six C7's running day to day tests. Some people paid £2500+ for the B/C6 and after a year of normal usage they have issues. Most not aware that it is the tech itself that makes screen burn an issue. There are ways to reduce the chance of it ever happening which is what a lot of these people would have liked to have known before they made the purchase. I understand why LG would never want to make a big song and dance about a guide which lessens the chance of screen burn, as it could hit sales. I recommended the B7 to my mate after he saw it in Curry's for £1350 just before xmas, I got a bit of info from him as to his daily usage, he wanted the best gaming TV. He only games 3-5 hours at a time. I explained everything I learned from OLED research, pros and cons from various sources and let him make the final decision. I sold him my Panasonic UT-50 plasma 2 years ago for £100 when I went 4k. It's still running perfectly after 6-7 years but when I went the plasma route you bet I researched the hell out of the model and the plasma tech itself before making the purchase. I miss the blacks of my plasma, was the first thing I noticed when I switched on my new TV. So you can imagine I would so love to get on board the OLED train but my gaming usage at times makes it an expensive gamble.
Worth pointing out though, kudos to the guys doing these tests - even if they are utterly unrealistic. They show quite clearly that the non-OLED screens have very uneven brightness on day one. Dark, corners on most of the images and totally awful. Would you want a screen that might have screen burn one day, if you abuse it? Or one that is rubbish on day one?
Get them to price match Hughes. Should work out at £789 once they have price matched. (y) https://www.hughes.co.uk/product/tv-and-entertainment/televisions/all-televisions/panasonic/tx50ex750b?c=424
'Offer ended' this is the telly I want to buy too! Was gonna order it tomorrow anyhow from richer sounds so price match would have been awesome ☹
Thanks for this...think I'll have to go for the Samsung UE55MU7000 set...just looking for a deal better than the £799 general price
Depends on the scaling - in theory, as you mentioned it should do perfect scaling. But I've experience poor scaling - I bought a 4K monitor with the intention of running games at 1080p, and they looked worse than a proper 1080p monitor :/
Here’s the measurements. Should help a little. (y)
Yes it is definitely 3D. This particular model is from 2016. Another model was released this year (2017) with 3D too but costs a little more than this one currently. https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/tv-and-home-entertainment/televisions/televisions/panasonic-tx-50ex750b-50-smart-3d-4k-ultra-hd-hdr-led-tv-10159737-pdt.html The voucher works on that model. Probably best to pay the £50 extra too as it has newer tech inside it. (y)
Is this definitely 3D? I’ve been on the casual look out for 4K and 3D for a while and not found one before.
Not sure what this comment has to do with this particular model. All TV manufacturers make TV's of varying quality. Smart TV's have come a little way in 5 years but none are particularly great (in my mind) at this point in time.
I bought a Panasonic Viera TV five years ago from Richer Sounds. It still works. However it's one of the few purchases I made that I regretted pretty quickly. The picture quality isn't that great. Dark scenes are almost indecipherable & the screen reflects badly. The 'smart' functions were nigh on useless and aged very badly. The Panasonic app store was very poor and nothing updated. I ended up going to a Fire box for stuff like stuff like TVCatchup. At the the time I was under the impression that Panasonic stuff was something special and paid over the odds for for the TV. I no longer think that. If I had my time again, I would have gone for a no-brand plain vanilla TV for half the price and upgraded to 4k more quickly.
Thanks for posting and good deal....same set but refurbished can sometimes be found on Panasonic's eBay site for 699quid. So for 30quid more and a 5yr guarantee you get a new decent 4k tv....not bad. I believe the 3d is active, so additional glasses will cost you.....
Code has expired now
Can run smart IPTV app which is next big thing
Watch and also look for similar on YouTube. Good luck (highfive)
Hi guys. What settings have you used?I bought this to before Christmas but not bowled over by the picture and find it quite dull and hazy.I also have problems like magroune had and not just with streamed content but also with terrestrial and sky. Many thanks.
