    Well for starters there are no completely new Panasonic TX47AS650's as this is a discontinued model as it's last year's range. Does it have to be a 47" or could you stretch to a 50"?

    Thanks for the reply. Can stretch to 50 inch, the budget can also be stretched a bit too.
    The guy in RS said the Panasonic although an older model, basically is the best TV for the price. Can't really fine much info on it though and am worried he is just trying to sell old stock!

    I've got the 50" version of the Panasonic. More than happy with it for Sky HD (and SD) and blu ray. Replaced a Samsung LCD

    If gaming and input lag is important, it may not be as good a choice as the Sony

    I got it a couple of months ago from John Lewis for £549, can't complain

    I would go with the Sony, nice looking TV with thin bezels, Sony are well known to have great picture quality aswell. Also you'll get a 6 year warranty with it for free which is brilliant, anywhere else you'd pay £200-300 extra for that!

    Ok. Thanks for the replies. I think I might go for the Sony. But, I've just seen this one Sony Bravia kdl50w839 at a really good price. Is this a goodun? All replies have been really helpful, thanks again.

    2.As650
    3.705C

    Had that TV for a few weeks now and love it, I would say buy it, one thing though is the menu is horrible (picture and sound setting in other menus :facepalm: ) but there is a good thread on here with all the settings in it , and once set up its a peach,,,

    The 805 has got Android does it not , so would be this years model, has good reviews , out of interest what did you pay for it.... cheapest I have seen is £769.... (its not the 815 is it)

    But would take it back and buy from elsewhere to get the free Sony 5 year warranty

    unless you got it at the 829s price of course :clap:



    Weird I could not find it on the Argos site, so did some searching and found this Sony 2015 Full HD 2015 w80/75/70c | Page 12 | AVForums

    It appears some people are getting the 805 instead of the 829 ...... @ £639 but personally still go to RS or JL or others to get the warranty

    It was the price of the W829 - £639.

    It seems the main difference is the lack of 3D glasses and no 2D - 3D conversion.

    Difficult one RS has them for £799 but they are offering a 6 year warranty for VIPs (free) and either 5% off or free soundbar/blu ray player.....

    If it were me I would get the RS one with 5% off = £760 which gives you a 6 year warranty for an extra £120 and RSs quality back up service..

    There look to be lots of combinations of deals , even one with the 5% off AND a free Bluray player, instore only on that one tho.... :)
