All Panasonic Discounts, Offers and Sale - June 2018
No I don’t I’m afraid, just the av forums for the 58. I would start with that. I have nicked all of their recommendations for very tv I’ve had in the last few years. The last I did was the Samsung Suhd 9000 and it was very good. The tv out of the box to their settings was chalk and cheese, made a hell of a difference
Should find it here: https://www.which.co.uk/static/tools/new-reviews/tv-settings/tv-settings.html Just scroll down to the panasonics and you'll find the TX-50EX700B
I could only find the ones for the 58inch model... I assume they’d be the same for this? Unless you found the ones for this exact model... care to share a link? :D
No problem, glad they saw sense!
Yep agree everytime I buy a new tv it’s straight to av forums to get the best settings off those knowledgeable chaps.
Hang on do you have to buy the TV as well together?
Already posted/discussed the hard drives here: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/toshiba-usb-30-1tb-hard-drive-canvio-ready-14-instore-at-asda-2965313
Yes some hot deals! I visited 2 large stores and found nowt!
Hot! Lots of good deals from asda over the past 2 days. Ridiculous cheap. Too bad it is in store only, too far away for me to take a gamble, probably nothing local here...
I have the older htb170 which is 120w...tbh I wouldn't want any less,some dvd/blurays have very low sound,I've had this full blast for certain ones.Good sound from it and the bluetooth is handy for playing music from a phone/laptop etc.My only complaint would be it doesn't always turn on first time with the remote you need to press the power button on the unit itself.
If only there was some way to search for this information!
Thats what she said
How long is it?
Appreciate refurb, but about £170 cheaper than anywhere else? HOT!
Great price. I paid £49.99 a year last March from Shavers . co. uk it died three weeks after the warranty ended, but they replaced it.
When you consider a replacement foil and blades for this is around £35 it's a great price!
Price elsewhere seems to be around £57 - Certainly the lowest it's been this year the last time it was this price was 2013/2014 Link for the product on camelcamelcamel
best price yet but I think I will go for the Blackmagic pocket 4k
But Micro Four Thirds system with unlucky autofocus :) and bodyonly , not really great deal in broad spec , but as for amazon is the best price yet :D
I have seen couple of reviews for this and apparently it kicks some ass for video
Incorrect image for this TV, the image they have used is for last years 55ex750? 55FX750 has a pedestal stand https://www.panasonic.com/uk/consumer/televisions/4K-LED-TV/tx-55fx750b.html
I’m sure I saw it listed online as 10 bit (8 + 2 FRC), but I can’t find the source now. Perhaps this was an early placeholder and an educated guess based on the FX700b. Displayspecifications.com seems to list this as true 10-bit so I’d ignore what I said and go with that until proven otherwise
Two for the price of one... https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/sony-bravia-kd55xe8396-55-smart-4k-ultra-hd-hdr-led-tv-2965207
8 bit +2 FRC doesn’t bode too well I believe this is 10 bit. The 2017 EX750B was 10 bit. I cant see Panasonic making a retrograde step on panel bit depth for its flagship 2018 LCD TV. Convince me........Where did you source your information from?
No reviews for this set yet, but being edge-lit, IPS and 8 bit +2 FRC doesn’t bode too well. Comfortably best price on market though and 5 year warranty means this deserves heat.
Oops. Did a search, obviously not deeply enough
1 left in the shelf in the Leigh store. pretty sure it was was £100 though on clearance, been lots of electronics stuff on clearance in Sainsburys lately
I have this player and it's great. Much better Blu Ray quality than my PS4 Pro, the upscaling in this box is lovely. Also, the Netflix app does HDR which the app on my Panasonic tx-50cx802b telly won't do. Ultra HD disc quality obviously fantastic, but worth noting no Dolby Vision support if that sort of thing bothers you (which at this point in the tech it most likely won't).
Your 4k TV probably does already?
Correction has YouTube app it's the UB-300 which does not.
Shame you can't use this in conjunction with the TV30 code. Still save £50 though if they pay.
If your very quick there is a link through quidco to richer sounds for 10% off any panasonic tv over £499
https://www.flatpanelshd.com/focus.php?subaction=showfull&id=1439471411 Note: Our calibration settings are optimized for dark room viewing. Panasonic EX700 is listed.......Might be of some help.
Does anyone know best setting for this TV please
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.
20ms or less.
Whats the input delay like on these screens?
This is really putting me off getting a TV now. From what I've seen every set has quite noticeable issues to a degree. I'm tempted by the 50" EX750B here, but think maybe waiting is the best idea now.
You have to remember that the TV is 4 times the resolution of a full hd screen. Therefore the pixels have to be 4 times as big/coverage for the exact same image, which enters in that the image could be washed out.
They honoured the RGB Direct listing with code ‘SPORTS100’ after I politely but firmly said if they didn’t honour it I’d just go and buy it at John Lewis. JL price matched RGB Direct to begin with and I had that with me as a bargaining chip.
None, (lol) but.... if I had to choose I’d go for the Costco one, free delivery, 5 year warranty.
3d lol course it is (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol)
its a better tv, so grab all 3 ;)
How many do you want?
They only have 3.
Gone for it in the end and got the last one in stock.
I have this tv. Excellent picture. Paid full price but got TCB and 5yr warranty at Hughes
If you want a higher end, and don't mind it being a little bigger; they also have the 58dx802b on their eBay outlet at the moment for £599.99
There have been 20% USA, 20% Germany and 10% UK. I presume there should be a France one on the way at some point. I used the USA one for the TX 58EX500B for a touch over £400. Bargain so hopefully another ebay deal along soon that you can use.
I just knew this would come back in stock when there's no overseas ebay codes knocking about.
Why does everyone on here say this? Because of ONE blog/video guy who said it? Same capacity does not = same battery. Do the ikea ones work at -20C and +60C ? Do the ikea ones hold 80+% of their charge after 1 year ? Yes I have both. Ikea batteries are very good .... but they are not eneloops in disguise.
Ordered thanks OP
Absolutely. Confused the hell out of me why these were a "deal" where even standard eneloop are 1900mah!
That’s why people voted out as the eu were doing a Jimmy Savile to us
The stand is height adjustable so does not have to look like it does in the picture if thats whats putting you off.
Shame about the horrendous stand...
Same, kharma. The main issue with the EX700 for me, is the effect from the panel. Colour banding. When you see these two panels side-by-side, the colour banding from the EX700's 8-bit frc is a sad sight. Meanwhile, the EX750's 10-bit panel shows nothing but a smooth gradient between colours. For an example of what colour banding is, see this:
Save £200 simples. You look at them both and then tell me.
You’ve no idea what you’re on about. They’re in two different leagues and you’ll not see any respected publication agree with you. Just because you couldn’t see a difference doesn’t make it so. Ignorance is bliss...
Ah yes of course, understood.... Samsung it is then! Thanks. Just as well really as JL just refused my price match request to RGB Direct w/ SPORTS100
The Panasonic has a non-removable power cable. The Samsung is just a figure of 8 lead so for £6 you can get a 3 or 5 meter one from Amazon. It was a deal breaker for me as to wall mount i needed at least a 3m cable run which would mean having to splice into the Panasonic one which would invalidate the warranty. Got the Samsung setup on the wall now and really impressed with it.
@zetecrob thanks for this. Am in the same boat looking for a 40" to wall mount. Can I just double check, which are you saying had the non-removable power cable - this or the Samsung? (And why is that a deal breaker?) Cheers
My main TV is an LG OLED 4K set from 2016. Got to say it's difficult to see how it can be improved much... defo the way to go is OLED or Micro LED as both utilise lighting at pixel level. I was in the laptops direct showroom last week and saw the electriq branded 55 inch OLED (LG Panel) for £800. Design and screen were stunning. Much better than you may think... The manager pointed out Electriq is the companies own brand... although very tempting, another 55 inch TV would have been a little to big for the room.
I am amazed at the prices of 55" tv's these days, i remember buying my 40" for £699.00 and selling it for £150 a few years later. Then paying £299 for a 48" 4k tv. Now waiting for the oled to drop dramatically in price as others have,, or maybe even wait for the new Samsung micro led screen with no back-light to arrive next year and maybe wait for them to become reasonably priced.So maybe 3 years until i get a new tv.
Code isn't working anymore. Anyone got another?
I had my plasma for 8 yrs. It's a sad day for my plasma. UPGRADE UPGRADE
Pay £479 and get this LG 55UJ635V from John Lewis
12 month warranty, don't bother
I got a pany plasma 50" VT on eBay for £155 a couple of years ago. 1080p consumes upto 430w I think! Great plasma, not tempted to upgrade yet.
Expired? Can't find the TV on the Curry's website?
No VCR's in my day. In fact the telly was B&W for the first couple of years ;)
You can get a tv and hackers get your details (lol)
How young are you?! Surely all school tellies had those rectangular wheeled stands with bolt downsupports down the sides and a VCR looking hopelessly lost on the middle shelf :)
That stand looks like the same as the tellies we had in junior school ;)
