MicroWarehouse have this for £626.92 http://www.microwarehouse.co.uk/catalogue/item/SAMPLS09

Persoanlly I'd buy a Panasonic TH42PX80 instead though

I'd have loved to buy Panasonic but unfortunately TH42PX80 doesn't have WHITE at all and I can't see the contrast ratio it claims as native. I must admit the picture details are quality on panasonic.

Not sure about Samsung Plasmas, but their LCDs are over hyped. Brother recently bought a Samsung 1080p LCD, and picture judders at fast action scenes. That was enough for me to opt for a Panasonic TH37px80, far superior looking picture.

Your unfairly comparing a 1080p LCD Vs a 720p Plasma there though. The 720p plasma will have a more natural softer look by nature and fast moving images will be a little unfluid on the LCD; especially on SD images. The 1080P LCD will come into it's on on HD sources though. a Panasonic LCD would be much the same.

Not knocking the PX80 BTW as i have one :thumbsup:

The Manual is available for download from http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200803/20080321184755812_BN68-01416D-00Eng_0229.pdf although the model is not officialy released by Samsung until 1st of May 2008.

The only problems I see in Panasonic TH42PX80 are A) No White color as all whites look dull and off white. B) No Digital Audio Output. On the other hand it has plus point of SD Card input for picture viewing.

Not sure where all of you are getting the no white colour from. I understand your theory but in practice the Panasonic does whites perfectly fine. The Panasonics have the best pictures that I've seen of any flatscreens. Fair enough I haven't seen the Pioneer Kuro's but they are in a different price league.

I thought that too, but i was reading the other day on the official HD site http://www.hdready.org.uk/ if a tv does 720p it is HD ready

The minimum native resolution of the display (e.g. LCD, PDP) or display
engine (e.g. DLP) is 720 physical lines in wide aspect ratio.

^^^This is how Plasmas get away with the lower over all resolution ^^^

but for HD ready 1080p (New certification logo) as of August 2007

Display products bearing the 1080p qualifier logos not only feature a minimum 1920 x 1080 resolution, but also guarantee that the relevant 1080p signal variants – 24 Hz, 50 Hz and 60 Hz – can be acquired, as well as reproduced with the same or higher frame rate.

yeah but if u note the "720 physical lines in wide aspect ratio" the "wide aspect ratio" part for 16:9 is a 1280 res and this set cant do that therefore its not 720p
