      For sale is my 65VT65. Just over 2 years old - bought new in Feb 2014. Balance of Panasonic 5 year warranty that I'll be happy to support on buyers behalf if required. I'll supply original purchase invoice.

      In original box, with both remotes, 3D glasses. Stand.

      Screen has had light use (I'll dig out an hours usage figure this evening) and I can't see any marks, dead pixels or image retention.

      Selling as I just bought a bigger screen - Sony 75" XD94.

      Collection only due to size and weight. Box is enormous!

      I'll post up pics later.

      Price and currency: 1600
      Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
      Payment method: BT, PPG or CoC
      Location: Milton Keynes
      Advertised elsewhere?: Advertised elsewhere
      Prefer goods collected?: I prefer the goods to be collected

      Hello HarisSeldon, I see that you and I are thinking along the same lines! I also aspire to buy the new Sony 75XD9405, but I'm going to have to wait at least a year and save up for it, and I'm hoping that in the meantime the price will drop from its current five grand. You'll see from my signature that I also have a 65VT65, but I will be keeping mine and the Pioneer LX5090 in my bedroom until they fall over, no matter what else I buy. I have no family so I'm free to buy as many televisions as I can, money permitting! When I do get the Sony 75XD9405, I will have to decide which one of my existing Sony 75W855C or the LG 60PZ950T I will then retire, because I'll have a room for only one of them. This depends on how well the Sony 75W855C calibrates, Mr Withers will be be calibrating it on 1st May.

      I'm a bit curious about why you are selling the 65VT65, rather than the smaller 60ZT65? How do they compare for general picture quality? Yes, the box of the 65VT65 is stupidly big. See posts #3 and #5 of this thread The absurd size of the box of the Panasonic TX-P65VT65B plasma | What Hi-Fi?.

      I am but its too much for me. I'd prefer new with a warranty, which rules out a plasma.

      Looks like you collect TV's like I collect speakers and amps ;)

      In answer I've just moved and new lounge is very light with floor to ceiling windows, and also large so the 65" now looks like a portable :D - The panny is brilliant but it cant compete with modern LCD brightness levels. I promised the Mrs I'd move it on but I won't give it away so a couple more days then I'll find room for it in the bedroom.

      No worries. I've done the same. The sad thing is that wth HD material the VT65 is the better image ;/

      Ah, I see that you've edited your post #4 to add the phrase that I've underlined. In which case your starting the thread Wanted - Panasonic 65VT30, 65VT50 or 65VT65 , all of which are plasmas!!! and the most recent of which (65VT65) had not been available new for a year when you started the thread, is bizzare behaviour, although I've noticed that you've now archived it. I don't know if you had archived it when you first wrote post #4.
      Anyway, good luck with your search for a £1,600 4K television.

      Hello again, I see, the 65VT65 is now not bright enough for the new lounge, fair enough. You are the only person I know who has both a 65VT65 and a 60ZT65, so I'm interested in how they compare? All the reviews three years ago said that the overall picture quality of the 60ZT65 was slightly better, but possibly the 65VT65 was more dynamic (bigger difference between bright and dark). I myself never aspired to the 60ZT65, always preferring the extra five inches of the the 65VT65.

      I'm still not clear why you are now selling the 65VT65 rather than the 60ZT65?

      I entirely agree with not wanting to sell it for too low a price. Personally, when I am Supreme Ruler of the Universe I shall decree that everyone must have a television in every room, so I would urge you to keep the 65VT65 in any case. So, assuming that the Family room is bigger than your bedroom, I would say move the 65VT65 to the family room and move the 60ZT65 to the bedroom!

      The ZT was sold a while back - I need to update my signature! When i had the ZT and VT side by side the only real benefit of the ZT was that it was less reflective.

      Ah, you've updated your signature now! It's interesting that the only real advantage of the ZT over the VT was being less reflective. Having already a 60" LG plasma, I'm very pleased that I got the 65VT65, and I'm almost as pleased that you've moved your excellent 65VT65 into your bedroom. Keep it, it's a terrific set. I'm getting mine calibrated on Sunday 1st May. One of many reviews here Panasonic TX-P65VT65B Plasma TV Review and another slightly more qualified one here Panasonic TX-P65VT65 review - Televisions.

      Steve Withers will be calibrating mine and the Sony, as he calibrated my then-four plasmas in July 2013.
