    I think it's the same TV - but where can you get it for £440?

    I've never seen the PF37X10...seems odd, anyway the P37X10E is the european version, the P37X10B (or BA if that's around) is the UK model, there are a few differences with the european one actually being better due to more picture controls (so I've read) but it wont take out regular freeview signals I don't think, there might be more involved too

    Yea, I googled it and it came up with a lot of results. It seems the same but I get the impression that you might miss out of something incredible basic but important...like a TV tuner! or something similar...

    I just did a Pixmania comparison also, Pixmania say the P37X10 has a pixel count of 1366*768 and the PF37X10 has only 1024*768, yet I`m sure the new panny 37 and 42 X10`s only have a 1024*720 pixel count so i think Pixmania`s site is incorrect, even so I really can`t find a reason not to buy one at £437 even without a 5 year warranty!

    If you check the terms and conditions at B4UDirect you'll notice that prices exclude VAT and the customer is responsible for paying all taxes and duties so I guess the tvs are shipped from outside the UK and arrive with a bill from HM Revenue & Customs....

    Just so you know the 37x10 has a resolution of 1024x720, the 42x10 has a resolution of 1024x768. :)

    Pixmania are based in France so that's a factor to bear in mind in case you need to chase up customer services. They don't always have the best feedback if you do a Google search.

    Also see comments re B4UDirect here

    When someone is so much cheaper than anywhere else... I'd be wary.

    I'd be ordering from B4UDirect.

    Paying by Credit card so not too fussed if theres a problem.

    I just wanted to clarify this was the same Plasma as the P37X10 and it seems it is and definately no VAT so £437 is a bargain.

    I received an email from Panasonic about this set and they it is the french model and that they cannot assure me that the freeview tuner would work in the UK! It is a good deal if it works though, Personally i`d rather pay to include a 5 year warranty which means it will have a better resale value when you come to upgrade your TV!

    If only that were true, I have a 5 year warranty with my previous 2 year old plasma from Panasonic.
    I phoned them and they said it is non transferable so not really that good if you plan to sell it.

    I only plan to keep each TV 2 or 3 years so again not really needed especially as you can't transfer as pointed out above.

    Having a 5 year warranty is good if you plan to keep it for 5 years.

    I sold my last TV with 2 years remaining of the warranty for substantially more than i could have got for the TV without it, I explained i couldn`t transfer the warranty but they could contact me if there was a problem with the set! low and behold with just 3 months of the warranty left the set broke down and the owners got a brand new set!

    Good result, I agree, nothing stopping you do that but

    my 42" cost me £1600 2 years ago, you can get the better latest model equivilent P42X10 for under £600 so not sure about resell demand with or without a warranty.

    I got a 5 year warranty for piece of mind as I didn't expect them to come down in price so rapidly.

    I can't make up my mind about this, been googling like a dog on heat today and still can't find out the difference between these 2 sets.

    It says the F model has a HD Freeview tuner which I presume is the TNT.

    If it works for UK Freeview like they say then I'll get it, if not I'll plump for the p42X10 for £560.

    Here's the Panasonic France web site, translated.

    Google Translate=

    Compare this with the X10 on the UK Panasonic web site.
