The cheapest it's ever been...

Cracking price, though only seems to include the standard 12 month warrantee; they seem to be charging an extra £279 for the 5 year warrantee that most retailers are including as standard (and which is a Panasonic warrantee, not a retailer warrantee, so not sure why they're charging more for it?!?).

gel is right there is a free 5 year warranty but you have to buy in store to receive it, cracking deal though for what is a huge top of the range telly...I'm jealous of anyone who has one of these that's for sure.

You might be able to get that 5 year warrantee buying online, not sure as have never used that retailer - the place I brought mine from said the 5 year warrantee was 'in store only' but they honoured it online and sent all the paperwork through for me to send off to Panasonic (though am still waiting for Panasonic to reply and confirm everything's in order, fingers crossed no problems with that!).
Bit misleading though, as the picture states 'free 5 year warrantee', and just below that the site invites you to select '5 years protection' for an extra £279.
I think the '5 years protection' is Sonic Direct's own warranty.
According to their T&Cs, it will be manufacturer's warranty as they don't offer their own warranty.

Yes, the 'protection' is offered by Sonic Direct through an insurer.
Technically it has to be collected from the store to get the 5 Year warranty from Panasonic, it is in the Panasonic T&C of sale with the retailer and part of their contract.
I’m not sure how Panasonic could (or would) ever enforce such a system though, other than phoning the customer directly and asking them if they collected the TV.
