Is that any better than the 50PC1DA which is £980 after discount?
http://www.dixons.co.uk/product.php?sku=836047
Similar spec it seems :S

Sooo many TV's so little time! lol
#4
Im on the lookout for a 50" Plasma as cheap as possible. Got excited when I saw this on Hotuk lol

plasma sucks? did you know that it gets blured after a year.. and they last less than 5 years?
also those tvs are not 1080p

Did you know you talk a load of crap ?

You obviously have no experience or knowledge of plasma screens

You need to do some research, not listen 2 a story your nan told you 4 years ago :)
blured? Did you mean bluray ;) or blurred :p

doesnt just fade... theres even higher chance of Plasma Screen burns due to its phosphor-based electronic display, which means they have to be serviced over time.

Plasma does fade and its a fact! newbie, as you know plasma is made of many tiny cells located between two panels of glass hold an inert mixture of noble gases (neon and xenon). The gas in the cells is then electrically turned into a plasma which then excites phosphors to emit light.The reason why its fades its due to the fact that the phosphor compounds which emit the light lose their luminosity with use.

Plasma is a dying technology anywayz, LCD is the way forward. I know LCD is not as good for analogue or digital images , but looking at the future everythin will be hd soon anwyayz.

Some companies do advice that their plasma will last 20 years, just like your laptop battery is meant to last 20 hours.. and after 6 months use u realise its more like 20 minutes. Provide me the name of a company that has tested their plasma for 20 years non stop with 0 burning out and i will eat my hat!

For the price of that tv you migh aswell get a Sony Bravia 40 inch W2000 series. full 1080pHD

Dude im an electrical consultant, i got the experience, the knowledge and own a site where we review electrical products.

I forgot to mention that LCD uses 10 times less electricity and PLASMA has 60% more chance of showing glare than LCD

You sound more like a 14 yr old troll , who can't spell & use grammar , to me .

Prove me wrong or go away .
#12
lol this is a forum, not a spelling contest. I focus on typing fast, not on spelling.
Also the comma and full stops come straight after a word, you're not meant to leave a gap (lol if you like grammar so much you should know that).
I guess there are sad people out there who get hard ons talking about grammar and 14 year olds. Very sad really.

I was only trying to be helpful and stop ya guys from spending a ton, when you could be spending less and getting something better!

Early plasma sets were known to fade however I believe that this was due to escaping gas rather than the phosphor itself fading. CRT's have been using phosphor for years without fading. At this point in time LCD cannot compare to plasma for picture quality. This could change later in the year with the next gen panels coming out but at this point in time plasma still offers the best picture quality due to it's high contrast ratio. Additionally Panasonic have now cracked getting 1080p plasma down to 42" and this set may be available here towards the end of the year, Japan only so far.
#14
i had a 32" LCD and now have a 42" plasma (pansaonic 42px60) and it pisses over the LCD all day long!!!
#15
Yeah, Plasma will always be better for the bigger Tv's, Although they are still unsure how everything lasts , When it needs regassing, How much it costs, etc.
#16
thats probably cos you were running your 32 lcd off a analoge/digital feed. I do recognise Plasma is better for that type of feed.

Until the plasma 1080p is released like you say (if it does come out) i still stick with 1080p lcd on a sony bravia x or w series. i have run my ps3 and 360 on my friends plasma.. and it doesnt compare to my 1080p lcd

Do us all a favour and stop spouting verbal diarrhoea please, you could be in danger of actually misleading those who do not actually know better.

1) Plasma's do not need 're-gassing' and the such like and would take around 20 years to lose any luminance under heavy use.

2) Modern plasma's are much less prone to suffer from screen burn and in the case of Panasonic panels are pretty much bombproof these days.

3) There are 1080p plasmas around, and there has been for some time, but are most likely out of your budget. Google Pioneer PDP5000EX which was released in July last year.

4) You would need a 50"+ screen to notice the difference 1080p from 720p at the average viewing distance.

5) Your Bravia *may* look better than your friends plasma when using your 360. But how do they compare when using SD material, motion panning, and black levels.
When going above 40" I have not seen an LCD that can rival a good plasma as of yet, and I have no loyalty to any as I have and install both.

6) LCD isn't the future - google SED or OLED.

I also can't condone purchasing or suggesting anybody purchase anything sporting a Sony badge. Overpriced for the same kit every time.

Dude the same goes for you, whos misleading who!?

Plasma might be much less prone.. dat doesnt mean that it doesnt happen.

The difference between 720p and 1080p is great too, it just shows that you probably have never seen it before or tested it. If that was the case why would anybody pay an extra 1k for unescesary technology?

And you probably install the display units at your daily job at Dixons, connected straight to the shared analogue arial, thats why you havent noticed the difference.

Plasma is more overated than the new spiderman movie!!
oh yeah what TV won the which Hi-fi award against the Pioneer plasma... I believe it was the Sony 1080p screens

Plasma does use 10 times more electricity too than LCD. Its Heavier, its more glare prone. And the fading occurs after the 1st year, I don't care what the makers say cos ive seen it happen too many times to ignore it.

Im not going to get into a debate with someone who cannot even grasp the English language.

Do some research, and go see some screens that have been caliberated properly by ISF. I don't think Im the one working for Dixons...innit?

I didn't say 1080p was an 'unnecessary technology', on a 70"+ screen from a HD projector it comes into its own. Its entirely in relation to your viewing distance in ratio to the size of your panel;

So panasonic are lying too then are they??

The life span for both is dependent on viewing habits, but if both are watched for the same duration, one would expect the life span to be approximately the same, 60 000 hours, roughly twice the life span of older CRT technology.

The energy consumption of both is actually about the same in normal operating conditions. An LCD screen consumption is constant whereas with Plasma it fluctuates according to the brightness of a scene, eg when a scene is predominantly dark , a Plasma will use less energy. All in all the energy efficiency evens out for Plasma and LCD

Does Flat Panel TV need re-gasing? No. Plasma gases are inert and sealed within tiny cells that are sandwiched between glass plates. There is never any need to re-charge or refill the Plasma.

Size matters when it comes to making a choice. LCD is at its optimum performance up to and including 32", whilst plasma offers optimum performance at 37" and above

On what sets have you seen the fading after 1 yr ?

On what sets is electricity consumption 10 fold ?

Do you , or have you ever , owned a plasma for more than 12 months ?

In your opinion do plasmas need re-gassing ?

You really are talking out of your backside I'm afraid to say . You are probably taking everything that you are told as gospel & I hope that anyone who is reading what you are spouting takes no notice to you because you quite clearly have no idea what you are talking about . Plasma technology is way ahead of LCD once the screen gets to 37" & larger , LCD is probably better below 37" in some cases . There is so much bullshit spouted about plasma technology by fellas like you that its amazing to think that any sets are sold .

I've got a 42" Panasonic plasma , 4 yrs old & its better than any LCD screen of comparable size .

Oh , its hasn't faded , it hasn't needed re-gassing , it doesn't smear on fast action motion , it doesn't use 10 times as much electricity as LCD , it doesn't .......... , I could go on & on .

By the way , never ever take any notice to What HiFi magazine says , its rubbish & the reviews aren't worth the paper its written on . If you really want to learn about items look elsewhere on the net , especially AV Forums , or more serious minded magazines where real people have actually owned & reviewed items for more than a few hours.
