    Evidently not. I would also like to know the differences between these models as opposed to the previous? Pricing looks rather nice.

    A 50" Full HD set for RRP £999

    Difficult to believe than one - maybe it's extremely cut down - no PC input - one HDMI - etc etc

    If true then hats off to Panasonic for weathering the economic downturn and providing fantastic value !

    X1 series for plasmas is not a 1080p panel. Its an entry level range with non-Neo panels and having only 720p.

    Thanks for the info :thumbsup:

    Could we get the thread title changed to something like "2009 Panasonic X10 series plasma" instead of "NEW"? It's fine saying "New" now, but several months down the line they won't be :)

    I just hope these models will have removed my only gripe with my PX70, which continued into the PX80 range: dynamic dimming. The auto brightness adjust dependant on how overall bright the image is. It cannot be turned off, unlike with Samsung models that feature a similar thing. It's only really noticeable in stuff with borders, such as 4:3 or letterboxed widescreen material. Its only a minor annoyance, but it detriments what otherwise is a great model.

    ETA of the first shipments into UK shops is 2-3 weeks.

    Also, just for clarification, the TX-P50X10 is definitely a 1080p panel whereas the 37" and 42" are 720p.

    In 2009 Neo-PDP is reserved for the top of the range models and not the mass-market ones.

    If that is true then UK are not following what the USA are doing.
    P50X1 in the USA is 720p. All the X series models announced in USA and Japan are 720p.
    All the 1080p panels in USA are neo-PDP panels. (S , G, V and Z ranges). http://www.avforums.com/forums/plasma-televisions/905556-2009-panasonic-plasmas-announced-usa.html

    Extract from Panasonic UK's online ordering system clearly stating the new TX-P50X10 as being Full HD.

    It's just so strange that they would mix 1080 and 720 under the same series, never done this before and they are not doing it in the US. Maybe someone at Panasonic entered the wrong description into the order system? Time will tell.

    Are there any other 2009 models available to order, or just these three??

    Cant wait, I had a 37px70 which I loved and now using a 37px80 which was a definite improvement (even if the sound and pedastal were worse), but Im afraid I probably wont get a lot of money whilst selling it on :S

    i think there must be a mistake on panasonic's online ordering system, why would they start the model numbers with TX when thats what the lcd's begin with, the plasma's always begin with TH.

    This year's model numbers will be taking a different format. I'm sure there are good reasons for this. Panasonic's ordering system is correct. Remember these are orders being taken for products that will be here imminently and the model numbers need to be correct for the production of invoices which legally have to specify correct part numbers.

    Are you going to put money that the 50" is a 1080p panel?

    I am interested myself to replace my TH50PX60, without spending the earth.

    I have just spoken to Panasonic's customer servcie department and they say its only 720p

    Who is right and who is wrong?

    Well, would believe that the USA are using "TC-P42X1", Japan is "TH-P42X1" and UK is "TX-P42X10".
    All for the same 42" replacement of the PX80.

    I'm betting the UK TX-P50X10 is a 720p set like it is the USA, but hey, who knows with these strange numbering systems.
