If someone offered £1400 for my Kuro, I would sell it. No matter how good the TV is, it's either out of warranty or will soon be.

Err, really? I got 5 years on mine (from Pioneer), pretty sure I've still got at least a year left.

Either way I wouldn't buy a new Panasonic, far, far too many stories of them going wrong (not just stories either, work colleague has had problems with both of his, the second a replacement for the first).

Mine is expiring in June, and my KRP 500A is from amongst the last batches. The OP likes the Sony, so he's safe. Smile

£1400 is half of getting you a 65VT

 

You would not regret for 1 second selling the kuro, simple as that.  The 65VT is a whole different experience to a 50" kuro or any other tv smaller 

In fact I would act quick before their all gone or the buyer changes their mind as they can get a 55VT for nearly that.

 

Pointless buying another 50" especially an LED that would be a mistake in my eyes 

Or pick up a ZT also an awesome and 10" bigger tv.  I have calibrated a ZT - The calibrated 3D performance is so good it makea calibrated 2D look underwhelming in many regards

I for sure will never buy a Panasonic TV, given their attitude towards dealing with faults.

A 55-inch OLED is already available for less than £5000, and 4K TV for less than £3000 in 2013. So hopefully, a 4K OLED TV will become affordable by 2015-2016. Or I'll go the projector route.
