New PANASONIC plasmas, how much you pay?

Recommended Posts

So sorry for double posting.

Larrikin is that Megamart in Sydney??  i just might go tomorrow.

Thanks.

Yes - megamart in Sydney. Forgot to add it also included the stand. So TV, High Def Box, and stand for $4400. Definitely the best price out there (including HomeZone's $4200 as it didn't include a set top box which is more than $200).

I'd have to agree, that's definately a good price. Homezone also sold me 3 cables about one third off marked price (saving $60). Even so, Megamart sounds an unbelievable price and probably the best around at the moment.

Paid $5500 for TH42PV500A , TOSHIBA J35 and HDMI-HDMI cable as well. The J35 is so far so good, no problem at all!!!!! (it has no blue dot or red dot on the box!!) but I found out it has V69 firmware.

I have a web link here, it may help to solve some J35 problems:

Does anyone know how to 'drive' the DSE website - their model numbers don't really make sense to me ?  They have a product listed as:

PANASONIC 106cm HD Plasma TV

42" Wide VIERA Built-in Tuner

for $3887

(Am I allowed to say that?  if not, please edit price but leave question)

My question is - Can anyone confirm if this is the TH-42PV500A

It's the superseded Vierra

I am going to buy a new 42' or 50' Panasonic plasma, but I dont know how much it should be?

If I pay cash at Good guys store, should I get 10~15% off??

I purchased the TH-50PV500A for $5500 plus the panasonic stand for $800 ( retail around $1200 ) So all up $6300, I think I got a pretty good deal.

I had a very close listen for any noise and I couldnt hear a damn thing.

This TV shits on the Samsungs and LG's which I compared against.

Now I just need to get a HDMI STB and to replace my crappy STB.

I reckon you got a fantastic deal.

Bet it looks good on that stand. Congratulations on your purchase.

These threads may help assist you in choosing a STB.

Cheers mate

its always good to know if you got a good deal or not and I must say thanks to everyone in this thread as I took the info in here and tried to better it and it worked.

The TV looks magnificent on the stand, I havent got it delivered yet but the exact model and stand were in the store and it looks great and the lower shelf is adjustable to fit my receiver.

Thanks for the links, I will start my research :blink:

Hi

  If you do decide to get one Dick Smith PowerHouse have them sub $5000, around

$4400 if you have access to a ABN. My Brother checked one(PV50) out a couple of weeks ago and couldn't see any seam but be careful.

Regards

Basil

I'm sorry, but how come you get it discounted with the supply of ABN?

flexis,

Great deal, where abouts were you able to get it for this price? How much did you put the pressure on them?

Hi dmb

I asked the guy at Megamart the best he could do on the 42 and 50

42 = $4100

50 = $5500

At this point I had put no pressure on. I was quite surprised at the 50 inch price given what I had seen on here and thought $6000 would have been a good price.

Goodguys matched the price and I pushed them to get the stand for $800 ( I love the stand with the TV - beats any furniture I had looked at ) I went with goodguys as I am a little weary of Megamart and the fact they may not be around in the near future.

Didnt look anywhere else as i thought as this point I was pushing their margins to the limit and I would just be wasting time and petrol driving around to more stores :blink:

Very happy with my 42-THPA50A (SD) from DJ's Brookvale at $3,150 on 2 yrs int free including pedastal stand.

This is the latest gen Viera 106cm standard def screen with analogue tuner & built-in speakers.

PQ just keeps getting better - Home & Away on 7 (analogue rebroadcast on Foxtel) looked like it was HD!

Is now mounted on wall, so pedastal stand is looking for a new home!

Just to point out, the 42inch SD and HD Panasonic Plasmas have had a price drop as of 1st October, to me, it makes it the best value price/performance plasma on the market bar none!

Thank you ddarby for the great news.

I was guessing this would happen if you see my my post of 21 August
