Me also. who well JL be price matching with? If they do, i may consider it also. i know its an additional £600 for me as my previous set was £1200. i never knew purchasing a Plasma would be so much headache. Lol.
Price match is with Direct TVs, at £1,699. Hope that helps.

I have had a good day, went along to my local dealer to look at the new panasonics, and came away with a GT50-50in £725 + 5-year Garantee + 2pairs of glasses, chappy had 2 left from from an allocation, but a customer bought a samsung instead, so a result. I dont mind buying last years model especailly the GT-50 the reviews and awards outway the negatives for me if there is a problem then iam covered, like anything new there may be problems but untill you buy it you will not know, I see that people have had major issues with last years GT-50 but how many owners are happy?? I am sure there are more happy ones, I can see where buyers are coming from when they see on a forum that there are problems, but not all sets will be a problem, yes it may be a lottery to some, but unless you go for it you will not know, and you could be missing out on a nice bit of kit, based on some elses problem. Anyway coming next week, so have to finish off the room now, well chuffed.

Nice one! That is a great deal - congrats. I am delighted with mine.
It was a no brainer really, it really did do well last year and still even now considered a great set, It is nice to buy the latest sets but I did not see any real improvement on the new sets not for the extra money, had I bought a 2013 model it would have been a GT-60 anyway based on how good it has been.
So guys, is the 50VT65 £700 better than the 50GT50???
just noticed the VT65 has fans.....no good for me....my hearing picks up all hence buzzing is an issue.....so pretty sure I'll hate the fans!!!
may be a refund and a VT50 for me or another GT....
Pretty sure the VT50 has fans too.
Probably check it out next week sometime, depending on whether my local John Lewis has it in stock.
Your right Gel! The VT has fans too......
AVforums reviews implies the VT50 fans are very quiet, and the 65 louder, but they may just be the way they have worded the review.....
i can't risk fan noise...
I don't know what it sounds like.
It's worth checking out the fan noise in person.
My G10 had fans that could only be faintly heard with the sound muted and didn't prove distracting at all.
You might be jumping the gun in assuming this isn't the TV for you on that basis alone.
