Is it on the list of 1-of-3 bundle promo that Pana is running ATM?

If it is, you could flog off one of the promo items and that'll mean a 65" for ~$4500!

Yee-Hah!

I just downloaded the manualand am disappointed to see you only get 2x10w speakers with this baby

My 50PX600 has 6 speakers (incl 2 x subwoofers) and the sound is great. This is a defivite step backwards!

Honestly, these big screens are designed compliment a home theatre, so it's almost expected that there's an AVR already involved. They're made to provide decent picture quality, not audio.

This is the impression i'm getting with the increasing number of models with poor speakers.

Does anyone know whether this 65V10A model is made in Japan or China ? Will it have the same

frame panel as the 50V10A version, Japan made, where the whole frame covered in one piece of glass) or

will it be the same as the 50G and S10A version, China made, where the frame is built with a cheap plastic look ?

By the way, which GG ( Melbourne or Sydney) matches Streamaster price?

Not meaning to hi jack this thread but I too have decided my Santa card, err I mean VISA card, needs to get me a 63-65" plasma for Xmas...but I am torn between the Panasonic 65 and the Samsung 63 Series 7...someone please help me choose...

I have seen both sets and while the PQ is good enough for me from either set, I cannot help feel Panasonic have done them selves a disservice by continuing to pursue with that crappy bottom silver strip...for me the athestics of the set play an important part as the display needs to be the focul point of the room...even when it is off...while the Samsung with the full gloss black bezel looks superb.

If anyone has either set any feedback would be greatly appreciated...

And should I consider an extended warranty?

Thanks in advance

given the 50in V10 model is made in japan, the 65 should also be the same. not 100% sure, but i cant see why it wouldnt.

From CNET US site's Editor's Take of the Panasonic TC-P58V10:

"As you can see from the image above, the 50-inch and the 54-inch members of the series both feature the "one-pane-of-glass" design we liked so much on Panasonic and LG plasmas from last year. The larger models lack that design element, since their increased weight requires more support, according to Panasonic's rep."

The 65" v10 for $5399....................Jesus........

I just tried to haggle a TH-65pz850a two days ago for $5900 and the sales just let me walked away. Won't go lower than $5900.

Did it say something very strange about the price of the V10 58" and 65"? :o

That 's why I 'm suspicious that this 65V10 model is the cheap China made model.

I 'm curious to find out that whether or not it has the same cheap black curved plastic frame

as in the 50G10 and 50S10. That frame really put me off.

Hope that my guess is wrong and the low current price is due to our strong dollar.

Went into GG store today - told they can't match the Streamaster price. Salesman I spoke to yesterday was not it today.

Told could do around $6200 with owners approval.

As stock isn't available to Nov will monitor the Pana promotion levels before jumping in.

I also want to find out if I really need to pay in full now to qualify for the offer.

Maybe take this to the Panny Vs Sammy thread that is alive and kicking in parallel with this one? More likely to get the answers you seek there instead of hijecking this.

Anyone ordered from online seller like streammaster? Sometimes their price is so low that makes you wonder. They can't be a bulk buyer larger than the Goodguys and Binglee, right? How come they achieve such a low price.

I think they just advertise so low the price for something they don't have yet. So that you won't go to the big store.

actually the 58" v10 too. The new model is almost cheaper than the outgoing model even with heavy discount on the outgoing one. I think may be what the sales told me, it's half made in China, is right

See, that's the thing - where it's made & where its internal parts come from are different matters altogether. Hard to get concrete info on both, but from what i've gathered the V-series are assembled in Japan. I could be wrong though.

I can't say I have purchased from them (yet!), but reading their website I get the impression that their prices are a result of tapping into someone else's buying power.

Streamaster Australia has negotiated an exclusive agreement with a large major retailer to be a "no frills" supplier of Panasonic and Samsung FULL high definition Plasma Televisions and home theater products.

I just ordered a Pana 58V10 from them. As Stalker says they seems to have an agreement through Myer. You get two receipts, the Myer one for Warranty and Promo redemption and the Streamaster one for Tax etc... . My experience with Craig from Streamaster was excellent. He is very responsive to your questions and their prices on the larger V10s are competitive. I am also pretty sure it is not the single sheet glass design of the P50. Pity. Then if you trawl the forums enough you will find someone complaining that the single sheet glass design provides unwanted internal reflections ;) You can't win...

The outgoing model TH-65PX850A is still selling more than the on coming new 65" V10. Isn't that strange?

Panasonic really push the cost down on the V10 even taking strong Aussie dollar into account.

Hi Junkyard I am also looking for one of these new Pana tv's. Do you have an address for this Store you are talking about? It would be most appreciated.

Can this 65" be wall mounted to the soft pine stud with the Selby bracket that supported max 100kg ?

Or is it too heavy for the soft pine stud or the Selby bracket to hold ? I have never wall mounted

a large and heavy panel (66kg) like this, so I 'm a bit worry with the soft pine stud. Any one with large

heavy panel wall mounted experience please help.

I decided to jump in and purchase the unit as I want the blue ray player as bonus (it is going quite fast) @ AUD5150 nett delivered. Additional to that managed to get redeem another AUD 100 as cash voucher which make the unit cost to AUD 5050. I hope I made the right choice.
