Marks and sparks have a panasonic 42g20b grade A refurbished set @ £379. Can anyone advise whether:
a) Manufacturer refurbs are ok or are they generally rubbish (the assistant said it could be something as simple as a missing remote when the set was first sold)
b) the g20b is a good set ?

All help appreciated

Don't know about refurbs but I've had a G20 for nearly a year and I'm very happy with it. There have been reports of Panasonics having trouble displaying iPlayer (don't use that myself) but a new software download seems to have cured it.
The most disappointing 'feature' about the set is that if you connect a sound system the output sound doesn't mute when the TV sound does! Maddening when the phone rings!
Picture is great though.
Alex.

It could mean anything they want but as a general rule it should have no cosmetic damage and be in a as new condition, as it being sold.with a warranty? If so its a good sign that its a grade a. the assistant was right but not limited to major faults that have been repaired but as I said before being sold in a as new condition with warranty

Sounds like an excellent price for a very highly rated set. Check out some online reviews, for the price it sounds a decent deal to me.

This years equivalent model is the G30 which I just paid £600 for at Richer Sounds brand new. A £220 saving is not to be sniffed at if you are fine with it being a refurb.
