I have seen the price of V20 recently for only $2465. Do recall that it cost $3499 previously. Anyone seen it for a cheaper price than above?

I was just wondering whether I should just get it or are new models coming out ?  

Any comments are welcomed.

New models are always on the way TBH, just depends how long you wish to wait to make your purchase.

As above, new models are always coming...
The reality may be that the Japanese made panels may well be a while away, so grab one now if it's the TV for you. Well cheap for a very nice TV.

Where'd you get it from? It's a pretty sweet price. Smile

Yeah, it is a great price.
I got it from JB Hifi. Went late one evening, just before closing time and took only 5 minutes to clinch the deal, without too much haggling.
I sorta knew that new models were coming out and they were getting rid of old stocks.

I also read that the new models (via are probably not any better than the current ones and will cost more.

Now, just waiting for it to be delivered by the end of the week!! woohoo!!

Not that it helps you now - but last week Bond and Bond had it for $1995 - I was kinda mad about this as I had just brought the 50 inch from JB HIFI for $1888 two days earlier. Bond and Bond don't have their Panasonic TVs on their website so I didnt consider them. It was this price at the Base Store in Hamilton. Might still be on special?
