I have the 3D ST version for £250 less and i cant fault it. It had no glasses but a 5 years JL warranty.
I got my glasses very cheap anyway.

What makes this tv better than mine even though its half the price again?

@mymymy, One sheet of glass design, wireless dongle included, 2 x glasses, thx 3d certification, isf pro calibration, 2:1 speakers, better remote, freesat hd, sd + hdd recording, admittedly lots of little things that aren't for every customer, but IMO the look of the thing over the st30 is worth £150 of anyones money! The 5 Year is good though, although I think if it was to go wrong it would be either within the first 2 weeks of owning it or after about 7/8 years. Source

Yeah, lots of little bits and pieces. My tv is next to my hub so its easy to connect the ethernet cable so its out of sight. I am still in the honeymoon period and loving it. I have the 3D bluray 5.1 player so i have everything working together. I only use 1 remote control for both.
I just noticed this one is not Full HD like mine. Seems a good deal though.

Does anybody trust Which?, I don't, go and try the product for yourself before you buy!

How would this compare to this? (apart from the size)

I would imagine that Plasma would consume more energy?

Thanks.

Do the reviewers at Which? know anything about TVs? They also gave the legendary Kuro a bad review.


Which? test every TV for 6 weeks. Probably longer than the combined total of the other 4 reviews. Probably about 6 times longer than the combined total of the other 4 reviews.

This TV has been subjected to the same review criteria as hundreds of other TVs, & has achieved a reasonable, but not spectacular score. 6 currently listed Panasonic models have achieved 'Best Buy' status (score >65%), but not this one. It's a good TV, but has some shortcomings. Review summary...

Pros: Great HD up-scaling, audio is a cut above, plenty of great built-in apps plus new app store, built-in wireless, super 3D picture, versatile USB recording option

Cons: SD is disappointing, new remote is not as easy to get to grips with as the standard Panasonic remote, uncomfortable 3D specs, no computer screen display option, relatively high power use.

Once you seen the quality from this top notch plasma, you wouldn't mind paying that extra £10 a year on electricity.

Samsung bling blings are no match, even their top end ones, may be until actual oled TVs are produced in about couple of years for the right price.
