    Just taken delivery of my 37" panny 5 series :D :D :D

    it is a UK model direct from Panny themselves in Black. They recon it is only the 2nd one they have had in (37", they have others) which I find a bit hard to beleive.

    anybody else got the UK 37" model?

    If you search around 42" seem easier to locate "in stock" than 37"

    I've been waiting over 2 weeks for JL(WGC) to give me a delivery date, they do seem very scarce.
    I've also ordered the circular stand TYST10H from Unbeatable because I've convinced myself that this will fit the 37in (a thread on avsforum confirmed this).
    I wanted black but JL only do silver (but good price and the added 5 yr warranty)

    I got one of the last series 4 Panny 37" from JL and maganged to get a pretty good deal - £2295 inc the five year guarentee (it also came with the RCA board even though they were convinced there was no terminal board at the price they were selling it at).

    I got mine on Saturday from Empire Direct. It was ordered 2nd week in January so under the present circumstances I supose it wasn't that long a wait. Its in silver though not black. I was led to believe that mine was one of quite a few they recieved from Panasonic so some people may be lucky and find one in stock. I also saved on the shipping cos their warehouse is in Bradford and I live in Huddersfield so I saved £50.00 on that.

    Not sure whether this is right but it came with the component card (boxed seperately) which I thought was an optional extra.

    Anyway the the end result is a big smile cos its the gorgeous.

    If your display is the Charcoal model (dont call it Black it causes matrimonial grief) then its model number is TH-42PWD5BX.

    When you say 'Direct from Panny themselves' do you mean with no dealer, distributor or reseller in the supply chain?

    Panasonic Consumer UK may not have sold many of your model - they generally supply the TH-42PW5B Silver display; though as they seem to be a bit short of these at present maybe they are putting a few Charcoal units through.

    Panasonic Consumer and Business systems have only recently dropped the price of the 37" units to give a bigger differential between it and the 42" so its only now that the 37" is starting to sell in any numbers.

    Best regards

    Joe

    Comet in Leicester (Fosse Park) have had a 37" on display for ages. I tried to buy it with a dicount card & voucher at Xmas, but the manager wouldn't play ball.

    Now it appears Comet can't actually supply this model any more (series 4? or no longer stocking Panasonic?), but nobody has actually asked for one in the store so its not been an issue. It would be interesting for someone to go in and point at it and say "I want one" - you may get a serious discount on the display model marked proce is extrememy high!).

    I gave up trying to persuade the manager at Xmas and bought a 42" Tosh...
