This does look a cracking deal! Everything else is £999 ish
#2
Can anybody tell me which is better Plasma or LCD because i have always been under the impression that LCD is better and Plasmas don't last long, and i'd like to find out which is the one to go for

Thanks :santa:

I have to point out that there is no way on earth this displays 1080i. You need a 1920x1080 resolution to do so. I think it must downscale the 1080i to fit its 720p resolution.

Its still a pretty good deal though :)

Jazon : that my friend is the question lol. You could start a massive argument asking that one!! They are both good, have their own benefits and drawbacks.
#4
Generally plasma is better over 32" and lcd is better below 32"

check avforums and ask question there
#5

#6

#7

#8
Lol do they deliver it prehaps :D

Good price, shame it's from Overclockers whom I wouldn't touch with a bargepole anymore.

I'd rather pay an extra £2 (when you've factored postage costs in) and get it from BE Direct who have an excellent reputation....

Incidentally, if you work for BT then you can use your staff discount to get this from BE for £846.33 delivered.

Jazon, I've a 5 year old Panasonic 42" plasma that still looks as good today as it did when I first bought it - the thing about them not lasting long is a total myth.

IMO and only my opinion Plasma wins hands down. Especially for SD signals.
There seems much less smearing on Plasma and hence produce better detail.
LCD's have a brighter image for sure but that's just down to the nature of design.... back lighting. I suppose you could liken Plasma to CRT producing light as and when required which is not a bad thing.

As for Plasma's not lasting long several thousand hrs are quoted to 50% brightness. On average use (about 6hrs a day every day!) I think this equates to something like 13 years (if my memory serves me right) so longer than you'll likely to keep it and pretty much on a par with CRT.

This was on offer recently at Currys, and a few of us bought one:
http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=33973

There's some feedback and pics in there. I'm very happy with mine :)
#13
Really want one but its £50 over my budget, spent the whole day looking at TV's you cant really beat this for price. Even most 37" plasma's are more than this!!

Going to wait till the end of Jan then this baby is mine (if there is not a better deal in the mean time) :)

£823.79 here http://www.beyondtelevision.co.uk/thisProduct.asp?ID=698

£829.99 here http://www.homecinematv.co.uk/showproduct.php?cda=showproduct&pid=SAM-PS42Q7HD

£849.99 plus Quidco at 2% http://www.empiredirect.co.uk/content/products/details/?modelcode=SAM-PS42Q7HD

Seems to be coming down in price everywhere. If there was a decent price with a good 5 year warranty I'd buy it.

give me a 50% off code and i can afford one!!

hi there i have been looking at the samsung plasmas for sometime the
PS42Q7HD & PS42C7HD and i have to say that the PS42C7HD is a better tv than than the PS42Q7HD why you may ask.

Well the sound on the PS42Q7HD is way to low even at 100% its not very loud as it bounces the sound from the bottom of the tv.

the PS42C7HD has front facing sound and its louder at 50% volume its as loud as the PS42Q7HD at 100% so theres alot more to play with theres even been reviews stating this to that the PS42Q7HD has bad low sound vols

if your going for the samsung tvs go for the PS42C7HD as the sound is much better and not only that both tvs are the same only diffrence is the sound and slightly diffrent tv frame TRY it out in the shops and you will see i thought i would let you know this as the PS42Q7HD was no good for me at all with the low volume levels

Except that 1920x1080 is 1080P not 1080i. There's no reason this won't be able to display 1080i.
#18
do you think its worh wating for 1080p as xbox360, ps3, blue ray films & Hd-DVD films are all going to be in 1080p ???

you think it will make a diffrence

This is precisely my predicament, I'm inclined to believe it will make a difference on screens 37" and upwards. I'm starting to think I should pick up a very nice 32" screen at a good price now, then get a larger set in a couple of years when 1080P becomes the norm and there's more high-def material around.

And if you really believe this you've alot to learn. The 'i' just means interlaced, meaning the lines are refreshed sequentially. The odd ones first, then the even ones second. It does not affect the actual resolution required to display the picture. You still need 1920x1080 (hence the 1080i). A 720p set has to downconvert a 1080i signal. In that downconversion you can lose some detail. Feel free to google this to your hearts content.

At this stage I'd say it depends what you want to achieve. There is literally 0 chance of any broadcast 1080p coming about in the next 5yrs. There simply isnt the bandwith there to take it. It will be HD disks of movies etc on 1080p. If you want HD movies, then maybe its worth hanging on for a bit for a 1080p set. If you want to watch broadcast stuff (sky or freeview) and your current dvds upsampled, a 720p set is adequate and also great for xbox/ps3 :)

im waiting for a 1080p hdmi 1.3 tv. anything over 32" and you will notice the difference with 1080p and obv when connecting to a pc the resolution will be miles better.

hopefully in 6months 1080p lcd's will be alot cheaper.

You win :) I think the confusion has set in because my projector is 1080i compatible and works at 1920x1080 interpolated. Think i'm up to speed now.

The information here http://www.unbeatable.co.uk/feature/11.html says that
C7 Series
PS42C7HD

PS50C7HD

42”-50”

Exactly the same spec as the Q7

series but this series is exclusive

to Currys and Dixons
#24
yep you are right thay are the same spec and same tv but the sound is totaly diffrent the C7 is way louder than the Q7, both tvs are the same spec but have a diffrent frame design the C7 has front projection sound speakers and the Q7 has the sound facing down but reflects of the bottom of the tvs frame but becasue it dos this the sound is way lower.

trust me try it out go to currys who sell the C7 test it then try the Q7 in a diffrent shop you will tell the diffrence you dont eben need to be in the same shop to know the Q7 has poor sound levels
#25
Apparently the Q7 has a tweeter, the C7 does not.

Not really tried the sound on mine, as I have it hooked up to a 5.1 system.

For a given amount of money a CRT would be far better..
#27
wow my quest for a hd lcd or plasma is going no were fast, there is so much to bare in mind and my head hurts lol. maybe i will just stick to the 28" widescreen i already have, you know, one with a massive back on it, that weighs 2 ton. im sure i will get fed up researching and end up buying something that is no good. oh well
