RE: Panasonic ZT60 (now ZT65)

The price on the ZT65 appears to be in a state of flux at the moment. My local Panasonic shop is selling them at £3,599 with  6 year warranty...

Sonic Direct are selling it for £3249.99, although it comes with the standard 5 year warranty.

And that is the exact same price that Sonic Direct are also selling the Panasonic TX-P65VT65 for! Both of these prices, and the 5-year guarantees as well I think, are true only in-store, so you do have to be able to get to Bradford.

Unless you can get someone to price match.

Although they say in-store only, some shops give the 5 year warranty on online purchases as well. Speak to them.

Agreed, although Sonic Direct were quite clear that you can order online, but must pay in store to get the 5 year warranty.

Always worth a phonecall though.

Not sure if this has been posted previously (apologies if so).

Interesting comment at the end regarding comparisons with sony's 4k set:

Just doesn't sound right being called a 'Zee-Tee 60' though; its 'Zed-Tee'! (Apologies to our American cousins...  Smile)
