I got this telly for the in-laws, (when it was on here for £370 in October) for them it’s very good, the SD card slot on the side is very good for viewing the latest grandkids pictures from the camera.

Quidco 3% = £10.47
Also on the Quidco website states free standard delivery

Hot!

My parents don't really have any HD sources but they need a new tv. Would this be better than a full HD lcd set for them?

IMO, this will give a better picture on traditioanl sources.
#8
depends how much you wanna pay,no difference between ready & full if you have no HD source,but,this IS a steal

As has been said a million times before, you don't need full HD unless you sit with your nose on the screen even for an HD source and being a Panasonic plasma this will look better than any 1080p LCD for anywhere near this money regardless, go for it you won't regret it.

Good picture just got even better with Villa taking the lead against Chelsea.

If you don't intend to watch HD material, this is TV is a no-brainer. In general, plasmas tend to offer similar image quality to CRT TVs, when used for SD images. LCDs are generally very poor for SD material.

For £350, this TV is a steal. Great for a bedroom, I think.

Bought the 37" version from JL a few months ago for the same price but with 5 year warranty. Great set for my bedroom.

I agree, IMO better picture than a Full HD LCD will give you. (I have the pre-runner of this set and also a brand new Sony LCD HD set) Plasma is best. As above a steal at £349.

Anyone know how this compares to the X20 range?

The 37X20 is £349.99 at RS, tempted to get it then this came up.
#16
The X20 has better connectivity i.e. 1 more HDMI and 2 more Scart sockets

I don't think there are any commercial broadcasters currently using resolutions above 720P/1080i for HD.

I've never seen an HD image that lived up to the claims of HD (720P or 1080P) - it's not like looking through glass at a real image, it's just sharper given the right input. It looks best where the source was designed for digital, like animation and video games.

Console games (do uour folks play them?) are often coded for the 720P Xbox and then ported to PS3, exclusive PS3 games rarely takes advantage of the superior 1080P capability.

Blu-Ray is about the only source that uses 1080P - and most people are happy enough with the quality of DVD or well coded AVI which are both below 720P/1080i.

And Blu-Ray really hasn't taken of that well. I think I have bought 2 Blu Ray discs in the year I've had a BR player (PS3) as the DVD was so much cheaper and looks fine to me.

Within a few years we'll have 3DTV as normal and god knows what else technology, plus these TVs are selling relatively cheap.

The only thing that puts me off a plasma is the power usage - most people leave their TVs on a lot as 'background' noise and these do draw more power than LCD.

I don't know much about tvs.
I went to Richer Sounds this evening and got some info.
He seemed to recommend the LG 32ld690. It's 32" for 399quid 439.90 with 5yr warranty. They seemed to have mainly LG so that was what he showed me. It was the Swiss Cottage one.
What are your thoughts please?
Can you recommend another 32" tv? I dont play video games and don't want to spend more than 350 quid, 400 tops.
Thanks.

Why don't you get the TV which has been posted in this thread? For the price, you really cannot go wrong.

If you need a smaller telly, then you will have to go the LCD route. The problem I find with the LCD is that SD performance is normally poor. If you are used to watching SD on a CRT TV, then going to LCD can feel like a downgrade.

If you really want recommendations for a 32", go to http://www.avforums.com/forums/tvs/.
