    I've seen the Panasonic TH-37PE50 mentioned in a few posts now and was wondering what's the best price people had found for it. Whenever I do a search I tend to get prices for the older PE30 model and not a lot about this one!

    These were the two best places I found too. Was wondering if anyone was beating these prices yet.

    Anyone know what the desk stand alone sells for and if they're easy to come by?

    Seen the stand here .Should fit OK.

    Did that John Lewis price include the Pedestal stand, floor stand or no stand?

    Cheers

    The John Lewis price is £1695.00 and that doesn't include a wall mount/stand/pedestal.

    No stand. Floor stand was GBP 400. I am hoping they will do a free stand offer like with the old model.

    So far I think AV-Sales and Unbeatable are doing the best deal with the free dvd recorder and stand but I like the idea of the JL 5 year guarantee. Does anyone know if JL will match package deals or is it only if you buy the basic tv?

    I think JL charge about GBP 125 for the table top stand. The DVD recorder is worth about GBP 200. However, the 5-year warranty is worth lot more than GBP 325. Plus, you get free delivery.

    I think they will match AV price as you can go to their Tunbridge Wells showroon for demo's / purchases. Showroom prices are exactly the same as net prices.

    well AV-sales price is inc delivery IIRC and extra 4 years warranty for forum members on plasma up to 47" is £370 (this is TADL hot swap-out loan exchange) so JL warranty is worth ~£45.........and i am not sure if JL offer loan unit on there warranty.......... so thats PLasma DVD recorder and stand with 5 year warranty see the web link for details but i am 99% you could get the lot from AV-sales for very very little difference in price to JL

    Even if JL's price was a bit more than others, I would still buy it from JL because of their good customer service. If I am spening about £2K, I want to deal with a company with a good customer service. I am not saying AV sales don't have a good customer service (I have no experience), but I know from previous experience they have a very good customer service.

    AV Sales have very good customer serrvice. I ordered a TH42PW6 from them, probably six months back now, I ordered it around 3pm and it arrive 9am Saturday morning. The pre-sales advice, the friendly sales service and the fact that they offer lower prices than JL from the off set without needing to barter with should count for something. Imagine if everyone got JL to price match AV Sales, then AV Sales go bust, what do you think will happen to JL prices!! They are not a fly by night company.. I'm seriously considering a new Panasonic 500 series plamsa and would have no hesitations in usin gthem again.

    Seems prices are going up on these. Both Unbeatable and QED now have higher prices.

    They has the 50 today both in JL and in the panasonic shop in Sheffield. They were priced at about £2000, plus £400 for the stand or about £200 for the pedestal, if i remember rightly. The 50 looks very nice and relatively compact.
