Has anyone any information on the above:
Date of availability
Likely price point
not as such...found out today from a specialist dealer that the 50PZ700 is expected at the end of May...and the 42" to follow in June....I didn't get as far as asking about the other models...
read the last couple of posts mate.
I was enquiring about the 58'' version.
sorry brian, bit hasty, didn`t see the model number. Apologies.
After all the banding problems with Sharp LCD's, I have decided to give plasma a try, I quite like the sound of the 50pz700.
With 1080p and good contrast ratios it should sell for about £2000 come November.
Anyone got opinions good or bad about Panasonic plasmas. Hope to have the Arcam Movie Solo around the same time.
The 42 will start at 2100 + ped/mount (which is a bargain imho and could well be less online). I think the 50 is 2600? Guess it might drop £600 in 6 months.
but if you don't want banding, not sure Panasonic plasma (as much as I love em) is the right route. Who knows what the pz700 will bring though...
OOOOOH Choddo dont tell me Panasonics have problems,my mate has a 42" Pannyand its picture perfect,been about a year old. He paid about £2500 for the set.
Only problem is he has it fixed to the wall about 6' off the ground,WHY I will never know. Its a pain in the neck watching it.
well, I've always thought it's probably easier watching porn this way but that's just me.
....meanwhile...just thought I'd repeat PvPer's link to the review of the 50PZ700
Not problems I wouldn't say (I haven't seen the Sharp) but the Ford ads for example, with the orange or blue graducated backgrounds show the banding they clearly display. I still love mine.
6' is insane. Mine's too high at 1.1m. Even for porn.
I think ceiling mounting is the way to go for the full effect
Ford ad does this on a 14"crt, and even in the cinema, think you will find this is actually the ad causing this that is not to say your comments re banding are not correct. The pro panels are less prone to this though due to better processing.
crossed wires - different sort of banding!
I think Nikonkid is talking about big 2 inch bands running accross the screen which are there all the time (depending on grey level of image). Choddo is talking about colour banding which is very minor in comparisson to the unacceptable/unwatchable sharps).
Yep thats right,two three inch bands on the left and right of the screen,that never went away,no matter what you were watching.
I think the panasonic TH50px700 would do nicely around the end of the year. Having said that Richer Sounds are selling the Panny 50"px60 for £1200,so tempting.
Thata Panny not Fanny. No porn here.
The new Samsung 50Q97 is getting rave reviews from owners here & in the states, and can already be found online for about £1200. 3 hdmi, great SD, and user control over PQ similar to a Pioneer . . . there's no reason to even look at a PX60 any more, unless you love the silver plastic surround! The Sammy is at least as good as the new 50PX700, from what I've read.
Does anyone know the release date for the 58PZ700?
OOOOOLD post now but did anybody get one of these 58" Panny's in the end?
Is it 24 fps ?
The only other sensible option in the 55"-60" is the Pio Kuro, from what I understand, and the Kuro is around £4,600 squid although it does seem to be about as good as a plasma TV gets currently.
This Panny seems to be going for about £2.9k
