It has to be 40 or 42 inches

i will be connecting it to a bluray player, my xbox360 and a satellite for freesat...

I don't like the Sony LCDs. Most have uneven backlighting. I sold mine for a Pioneer PDPLX5090. In your case, I would take the Panasonic for sure.

As far as I can see the Sony does not have Freesat HD, only Standard Definition. On that basis the Panasonic would be the better buy, saving you adding another Feesat HD box to the Sony later.

the backlight issues with SONY are well documented - look at avforum. Personally I prefer Panasonic - and I also prefer Plasma as we watch alot of movies. The Pana also does have a game mode which I find good for PS3 and Wii.

You could get lucky like me and bag a TX-P42G10 for £650 with 5 yr from M&S

no, freesat comes in SD. Then there's freesat HD.

Am in a similar boat & am also comparing these tvs.

Am leaning towards the panny - based on reviews more than anything. All the tvs have an awful picture at my local currys, guess they are all sharing 1 feed! So that doesnt help! Am surprised they sell any!

My only worry is the SD pic on the panny, its not supposed to be very good. I use a vigin V+ which is HD capable - would the SD PQ be ok?

Am just worried bout shelling out my hard-earned if the SD pic aint gonna be as good as my 6 yr old Toshiba rear projection crt! :roll:
