Sevenoaks are doing a great price on it, 5 year warranty, seem to have stock I think.
I don't know about JL, but I had to wait a few weeks for mine to become available - apparently the Covid situation has restricted the number of panels available in the country, so most people are probably struggling for stock.This looks like the one ill be getting. JL and Currys sold out. Typical.
How long do JL take to get stock in normally?
The big 3 - JL, curry’s and Richer sounds don’t have any.I don't know about JL, but I had to wait a few weeks for mine to become available - apparently the Covid situation has restricted the number of panels available in the country, so most people are probably struggling for stock.
Might be worth e mailing them first - they could take your order, then advise they are out of stock. As long as you pay by credit card you are protected, but you would have the hassle of getting a refund.The big 3 - JL, curry’s and Richer sounds don’t have any.
4 smaller companies have them online but I’d have to check out trustpilot.
Running pro 2 and turned down contrast. Looks really good. Ill watch the football later.
As well as AVF's own, Picture Perfect & poster's suggestions, many websites can help such as:Ordered from John Lewis. Coming Thursday.
Any tips on picture settings? Thanks
Although only to be used with a pinch of salt. For some reason they recommend using -8 for red on white balance settings - I tried this, but it produced a distinctly green tinge.
Some bedtime reading:I had my LG calibrated by someone on here about 4.5 years ago and it has a great picture but I still ended up with screen burn.
what’s the setting I have to be careful with in regards to screen burn..Lumenance?
For one thing, the patch won't be a square, it will be a rectangle due to the TV's 1.78:1 aspect ratio. Thus, if you know the width and height measurements of the display, you can calculate what 1% of that will be. But yes, a 1% window is many more pixels than the specular highlights that would make up a candle light or a star field. However, that doesn't automatically mean those specular highlights will be brighter than a 1% window. See my comment on power management.If you think my maths about the patch sizes are off. Please correct me.. If I read 1 % window... I think it's 1 percent of the total square-size. So it will be 1/100 part. And 10 x 10 = 100 ! So,.. 100 parts of 1/10th of width and height.. And that's a reasonable big part of the screen.. Not a candle light or star !
One thing to consider, those picture settings are their calibration settings and are unlikely to result in your TV becoming calibrated, if you use them.
I haven’t noticed it, I don’t think, and I noticed it a lot on the ez952. I thought I saw it on Leon UHD disc the first night I had the TV but replaying that section carefully, I couldn’t spot it.Regarding the frameskipping issue... Has this issue been observed with all IFC, etc. modes off? This would be a real shame for the most important framerate for movie watching in general. And frameskipping is visible very well with 24fps.
Has Panasonic been contacted regarding this issue and have they maybe even commented on it, @Phil Hinton?
