Can we assume this review will also apply to the 42 & 46" versions?50" is a bit more than I can accommodate!
Thats what she said!
I am right in thinking these tvs HALVE in value after 1 year?
The G20 was £650 pounds three weeks ago.
Gotta say I'm consistently impressed with Panasonic's plasma sets. They seem to remember that all the gimmicks in the world are useless without a good picture and, better still, have recently started coming with really good built-in picture modes as well. The THX mode on my G20, f'instance, really doesn't need any tweaking at all to provide a perfectly acceptable picture and is superb with just minor tweaking. Wish more companies would follow their lead in all honesty.
Oh, and scoobiesnacks, most TV's drop like a stone, especially when they reach the end of their life. The sensible way to buy one is to look for a really good set with a replacement due soon, there's almost always a good deal available. Also the G20 was a 2D screen, not a 3D. so is considerably less money.
Well I don't think the G20 ever actually sold for £1300 - so no the TV won't half in value in a year but you will undoubtedly pay a couple of hundred pound extra for being an early adopter in any new release ... that is something you have to factor in.
We bought the 42" version of this TV a few months back. Side by side with other plasmas in the shop, it knocked spots off them and was even better when we put it in our living room environment. Can't recommend highly enough. Absolutely stunning.
