Could the people with good deals, scan and post their bills please? It would be helpful for others to strike a bargain.

Pioneers are officially available in India with warranty. Here's a review of the TV I recommended. It costs ~1.5lacs.

Pioneer PDP-5080XD Review: 50" HD Ready Kuro Plasma TV

The review should give you an idea of why Pioneers are considered the best in the business

Are you sure it is TH-42PV80H?. It should be TH-42PV80D.

somehow I am a bit let down with panny's dealers and the widely varying price points. If it is possible to get one for that cheap, then why is panny fooling around with us. I have seen some people pay 74k (i paid 72 ) and then heard bargains of 68k and now 58k !! I mean are these showroom pieces (like the one i was cheated into and had to get replaced for a brand new) or is there some huge shipment which got slightly damaged (un-noticeable to buyers) in transit or what. Either ways, I am glad theres so many plasmas around on an LCD thread cheers:

May be not, people have bought this for 55.5k early this month. I've requested dilip to post the scanned image of the bill but looks like he couldn't yet

Guys!, I'll try to put up the scanned copy of the Bill , later today.

But I do believe that the Panasonic is available for less than 60K's now. In fact, I used the link below to get the Price of 58k, as earlier , the dealer was quoting a price of 62k only.

Compare India - Televisions - Panasonic-TH-42PV80H

Hope this info helps! Happy bargain hunting!

Dear Jassi, please look at the link below to the Panasonic India Site & it states that TH-42PV80H is the available model.
VIERA TH-42PV80H | Plasma TV | Digital AV | Panasonic India

hope this helps in clearing the confusion.

dear @car_crazy - this debate has already happened when I made my post earlier as pointed above. Panny site always said H and their customer service has no clue on H & D. However I was told by regional manager that "there are some pricing issues as in they can't sell the same model in in india for almost the same price as in singapore. So its D in India and H in singapore"

Look around following post http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/gadget...tml#post921996 for more insight. This may have changed now though, but till all the recent purchases reported here, it is D. If its an H, then likely a grey import, unless panny got around the customs issues and started selling H.

Thank you very much for the info, Jassi!

But what ever be the case, D or H, I'm loving the TV & really impressed by the picture quality. Especially the clarity has improved as I used my Philips DVD Player to upscale the HDMI output to 1080i.

Even the Divx Movies Playback is great. Much better than I ever expected it to be.

so you have an H or D? and maybe i missed your post, but how much did you get it for.

ANd yes the quality is really amazing even with hathway/tatasky/dishtv. if you have a PS3 try and get hold of some blurays, it is just awesome !!

Recently one of my friends cousin has bought the 42PV80 for around 61K(last week) whereas I got it for ~66k last month. I went to the Panasonic showroom to get a component cable for my BIG tv connection and I was told that Panasonic has reduced the landing prices in view of competion from Sony (I suppose latest V series etc) and hence the price is reduced even though the MRP is same.
