Nice telly the 54v20 as is the 54z10 even if it does use a bit more juice it's not a deal breaker for most for the PQ.

The 65 S series is made in Japan. As is all the V series.

Doesn't matter who you are. HN GG JB. They can honestly tell you that there is no money in tv's. If they are lucky they are making just enough to cover warehousing, warehouse staff wages, staff wages, admin wages, rent, power, insurance, super, blah blah blah. There is only money in bulk. And it's the customers that lose out. They get pushed into the model the store might make money out of and may not be right for them. Good staff leave because of lack of commission. So you get left with grumpy pushy dodgy sales people. I'd hate to say it but chasing a bargain will bite you in the arse eventually.

No 65" Pana there at the moment (just the TH-P58V10A)! - & I notice Panasonic Aust have deleted any non-3D V series 65"...?

The 65" is on their website at $2899 currently. It says online purchase only so anyone who wants one - that's where you'll find it!

Just be careful with Panasales and make sure the unit is new.

They do pickup all the refurbs, warranty returns and seconds.

But atm there is the TH-P65S20 around for a smidge over $3K,new model.

Just seen a 65" Panny at JBHIFI for$2999 - These things are getting cheaper. I wonder when they'll bring out a 75" model? 65" just isn't big enough!:D

I find that any of the big chain stores will sell u any TV at cost price as long as you buy some extra warranty and a HDMI cable etc. I do it to keep them happy and then I always return the HDMI cable the next day :D

Hello Joz,

Any details/inside line ? It would be good as a solution instead of a projector for bright rooms.

Best

Has anyone availed themselves to the JB deal? The price makes me very tempted to upgrade my 720p 50" Sony rear pro. I have heard that Panasonic panels suffer from 'floating blacks'. Anyone have any experience with this?

I think I will head to a JB tomorrow to check one out.

Any comments and/ or suggestions will be appreciated.

Which 65" pana is the jb one? Here's an avforums.com review of the VT20 (TX-P65VT20B) -

"Pros

The best black levels of any new TV on the market

Good out of the box performance in THX mode

Reference greyscale and colour reproduction when calibrated

Lack of PWM noise and clean looking images

Freeview HD and Freesat HD built-in

Reference level 3D performance

Excellent build quality

Excellent lag times for gamers

Full ISFccc calibration controls

THX Certified

Two Pairs of 3D glasses included with the display

WiFi dongle included with the display

Cons

The display appears to have a processing issue with 50Hz material that results in artefacts

Uncertainty over long term black level performance

Some visible banding with certain material

Menu design gets in the way when calibrating

Some users may see flicker from the image

3D glasses not that comfortable

Still lacks film cadence detection

CMS lacks full three way control for colour, hue and luminance as well as no control for secondary colours

Greyscale calibration only uses as a 2 point control as opposed to the 10 point controls available on some other displays

Lack of content on Viera Cast

Uses considerably more power than its LCD rivals

Extra 3D glasses are expensive

The price which is comparable to a good projector"

I ordered a 55" Sony Bravia EX500 last week, on special at Powerhouse for$1600. The sales guy was adamant that Panasonic, which they also sell, is not that great in terms of quality and reliability. Make of that what you will!
