Kopkiwi: I just purchased a 65" Sony 930C. Brilliant TV. HRD, HDCP 2.2. Plus all the rest of it.


May I ask where from? None of the shops seem to list it on their websites and sony.co.nz has it listed for $6999.

Thanks for the tip. $6000 won't fly in my place but when the price drops it might sneak into the budget.

 

Something to look forward to.

Looks like Sony are out of stock anyway plus $6000 is way outta my budget. Personally looking at the 55" 8500c.

An ST is not a VT...
The only Pana that holds value is the VT, kind of like the FHD Kuro from Pioneer being the only TV that people paid silly prices for.
However, $2500 is too high.

Just about all reviews state the ST50 is at least on par with the VT30

Yup - then again, apparently the 2014 Porsche Boxster is a nice car, but I'd still want the 2013 Porsche 911...

A calibrated ST50 is nearly on par with a Calibrated VT30. The VT30 does have additional calibrations that make for a slightly better picture and black level.

I ended up getting an ST50 for $3000 as the VT30 at the time was $3600

I feel $2500 is a good price considering you cant buy these any more and to get something in 65" with similar picture quality and black level  is well over $2500.


It was certainly a sad decision by Panasonic to end the high end Plasma line

You're telling me, I feel it was worth around $2k. But some d3ckhead on TM had one up for $1200 so he had set the market.

I'm glad I held out as it seems everybody is having a pretty good TV sale this weekend.

Looking at this. It was $3499 https://www.noelleeming.co.nz/shop/prod139011.html Not the TV of my dreams but not a bad price either and well within my budget. I could wait longer and eventually get a nice 4KTV on clearance but in the end you can always do that I suppose and our borrowed HD ready Samsung plasma is starting to make my brain go fuzzy.
