Browsing the Empire Direct site I found a Panasonic 37" Plasma TV (with 3 shelf cabinet stand) for £899.99! According to the site this is a new TV! Delivery is charged at £30 extra but the TV used to cost £1,689.99 so that's no great hardship! The technical spec is all on the site but - basically - it is HD ready, has 1024 x 720 pixel resolution, Nicam sound of 20 watts, both analogue and digital tuners, connections for video cameras, etc, RGB output, 3 Scart sockets, S-video input, supplied stand and remote!!

Bargain!

Voted cold.

You never know some people may prefer 37":)

And the 37" has not been reported to have 'purple snake' fault like the 42".

Saying that my 42" is coming in the morning lol:-D

Look if it doesn't do 1080p HD then it's not worth buying.

You will SO kick yourself if you don't buy 1080p

Just did with a Sharp 42" LCD which was crap, sent it back and got the 42PX60 for £899 delivered with a 5 year guarantee.

Way I figure is that over the next couple of years I can get a new 1080p set then move the 42PX60 upstairs for the kids gaming.

I have the 42'' version in my living room and it's great. I'm after 37'' to hang on the wall in my bedroom, but as mentioned earlier, can't bring myself to spend the same money for 37'' as I did for 42''. I'll have to wait until the 37''s price drops some more (I got 42'' with stand for £780 from Currys after discount, just following Christmas).

I would like to see the size of people's rooms that are buying huge 42" tellies. I am amazed at the snobbery of people who think anything less than a 42" telly is rubbish. The reasons I like the 37" is that 1. It's more than adequate for the size of room (which isn't small but anything bigger would look silly) and 2. The cabinet stand has 3 shelves that can house a digibox (hopefully an HD one in the future) a DVD Player AND a VCR as my boyfriend has loads of videos that he can't part with! Anyway, it's a known fact that smaller screens have the best picture quality; the bigger it goes the worse it gets. Mum has a 24" (remember those?) Sony flat screen CRT and it's gorgeous with the Sky+ increasing its already, fab picture. So there lol. Rant over.

Why do people continually go on about sets not being worth it if they are not 1080p? Check out AVforums for info on this subject (from people that actually know what they are talking about) and you will see that the general consensus is that in your average sized living room at a normal distance away from the TV your eyes will not be able to distinguish between 720p and 1080p.

Yup what absolute rubbish. 1080p only shows a better picture on screens much bigger than 42" at normal viewing distances. You may be able to see a difference on a 50" viewing from like 6feet or closer but otherwise you only really gain anything on a large screen (projector).

Ideal viewing distance for 37" is about 9ft away - if you cant sit any further away than that a 42" looks worse as you can see the flaws in the picture. so unless you at least 12" away you'll getter a better viewing experience from the 37". And the 1080p comment is a bit of cack too - you need a massive screen to notice the difference and be close to screen which aint where you want to be watching it from. I measured my lounge and from my viewing position the 37" was definately preferable and doesnt hog the lounge.

Just for info the 37" does have purple snakes prob but panasonic have finally got fix for it so wouldnt let it put you off.

But for those of you with a 40ft lounge I'd go for the 42" :thumbsup:

I sit about 8ft from my 42" and its perfect (especially with a HD source) if I had a 40ft lounge there is no way on gods earth I would consider something as small as 42" I would be looking at the 60" laser rear projection sets that sony have coming out at least. 40ft lounge would be so nice (jealous)

I'm not a TV snob. I knew nothing about plasma/LCD until reading about them on HUKD. I replaced my aged 26" CRT with the 42" Panasonic because it was such a brilliant deal and for no other reason. From John Lewis with the price match it worked out almost as cheap as the 26" LCD from Currys etc if you added the 5 year warranty.

So from a completely unbiased view.......I don't have a 40ft lounge. I sit about 14 foot from the TV and the picture, even on SD, is superb. I don't have HD so can't comment on that. From personal experience you have to sit a fair bit closer than 9 foot for the picture to degenerate a bit and even then it is better than my dad's 26" LCD Panasonic. It probably isn't much better than the CRT it replaced, but I expected it to be worse, because of the size.

As far as the comments about it dominating the lounge are concerned then, again from my own experience, that is rubbish. I thought it would and was concerned about the 42" for that reason. In reality, however, it actually takes up less room than the 26" CRT it replaced as it goes further back into the corner. Side by side the 42" looks smaller, neater and way more stylish than the old CRT. The screen is big, but only in a good way. Looking at the 26" screen again I don't know how we watched it now!

I can only say that people who rubbish the bigger screens and put possession of them down to some sort of snobbery simply can't have tried one for themselves in their own homes. I don't watch a great deal of TV, but have watched a lot more in the last few days since getting the Panasonic!

As for cost. I paid £899 including a 5 year warranty and cabinet stand for John Lewis for the 42" plasma. Yes, this is a lot of money which is why I wanted the warranty. I threw out the receipt for my 26" CRT yesterday. That cost me £760 including a 5 year warranty in 2001. Enough said.

1080p brings improvements in displays above 37", but like most people this is significant to audiophiles only. It won't affect most people.

Of note is also that if you were buying an LCD screen then dead pixels do exist. If the screen is 1080p the chance that the pixels will affect your viewing pleasure is less as they will be smaller.

Sony started talking about 1080p being 'True HD' and the industry went ballistic. A lot of manufactures wanted a gradual build up to that screen resolution to clear old stock. Your issue is not going to be now, but in 5 years time when 1080p is the default for HD/Blue Ray players (probably not HD broadcasts) and more importantly Xbox 360 and PS3 games where 1080p is important.

You may not like it, but go into most Curry's etc and you won't find 1080p. Why? They have old stock and they want you to believe 1080p isn't where all 37"+ screens are going. (And a lot of the 32" ones).

It may not be important, but I'm not particularly interested in having a sub-par screen. 1080p is where it's at. You may want to consider 1080p if you are putting a big screen in a smaller room as well.

Personally I'm waiting until the dual HD/Blue ray players come down in price, there is good selection of films, Telewest/Virgin Media start pumping out a lot of HD content, and prices come down to sub-700 for a good 1080p screen. Should be sometime towards the end of the year.
