Panasonic LCD Television

Here's the thing,

If I can buy a Panasonic TX32LXD85 tomorrow for £517-00 should I go ahead and do it or keep researching?

No games, no Blu-Ray, Free sat HD a possibility, Grand Prix fan....

Whats anyone think?

Cheers, Epirb!

How long is the warranty with the £517 purchase?

Have had one for 3 months now and very very satisfied with it in all respects. That's a good price-go for it

The longer you hang on the cheaper they'll get, but you could still be hanging on in a year's time.

Sooner or later you'll have to go for it.

It's your call.

Oops , Apologies , mine is the LZD 85 which has full HD. You might be able to pick this one up for around £620 if you hunt around

I think you should before keep researching a little bit and go on a review search engine and read consumer reviews on it. I personnaly use this one for compare[url=click here]lcd tv prices[/url]. And for more information about the Panasonic TX32LXD85 , you can also visit and try to compare on the web [url=click here]lcd tv prices[/url].

You might think that I would have thought of this first.....

Do all these shiny freeview sets incorporate an analog tuner as well?

My free view is a bit erratic and don't have the freesat in yet!

Specs don't make it clear!

Thanks, Epirb.

I see that most do...

Well, I have dilly dallied and missed the £517 deal, one of the reasons was that I wanted something to compare this set with, especially with the 100 hertz refresh but couldn't find anything suitable.

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks for your help!

It looks like the Argos deal at £484.94 is still on.

Without an analogue tuner you wouldn't, for instance, be able to watch VCR recordings.

By the way, a Freeview set top box receives the digital signals and then converts them to analogue - otherwise you wouldn't be able to view programmes on an analogue television.

Regarding the Freesat equipped Panasonics, the TX-32LZD81 can be found for £799 including five year warranty in my area; the 42in is now down to £999 including warranty.

The 32in is even cheaper at:

but this doesn't seem to include the five-year warranty (worth £200).

If you can wait until just after Christmas I know, for a fact, that prices will drop again...:-)
