LED is still LCD so we're still in last year!

Good spot OP for a decent quality LCD, would have bought one if I didn't head to Sainburys a couple of weeks ago...

Is this TV better deal than the 42"Phillips PFL7404 which I ordered from [email protected] circa 2 weeks ago. Phillips has still not been delivered:? am temped to cancel the Phillips in favour of this? Whats the consensus?

The Philips is a very good set and I probably would hold onto it if I were you. The 40Z5500 would probably be more comparable to your set and would be a bit of a head scratcher but it's probably worth you sticking to your guns. I was looking to get the 9704 but can't find one for love nor money and don't want to part with the amount of notes it is currently up at!

This is an excellent set and for £699 with a 5 year warranty.......HOT !!!!
#7
YES!! Took the plunge on this one. Showed the wife how much other companies are still selling this model for, without 5 year warranty, then added what they were asking for the additional warranty and she finally agreed with me. :-D Some places are still selling this at way over £1000 and at least with M&S you know they're going to be still around in 5 years.

Quidco tracked within 10 minutes for £34.95, so final cost will be £664. I've seen this model in action and was blown away with the realism of the colour and depth of the contract. With SkyHD or any HD source it is simply gorgeous!!

Thanks OP Heat and Reps Added. :-D

What the hell are you talking about? Theres no such thing as an 'LED TV' on the market so get your facts right, it's still an LCD panel inside, thus still an LCD. I suggest you do some research before thinking you know everything.

I'll stick with my Pioneer Kuro thank you, hardly any TV can touch it (well until OLED comes out anyway)

There are LED TV in the market. and you can see a big difference in the size(the thickness etc) and quality between LED and LCD/plasma.

LOL and dont forget PRICE!!!! Anyway, the jury is out on LED TV's. They have as many positives and negatives as LCD's at the moment and anyone jumping in this early into development has to accept that they may be a guinea pig in the same way that the early adopters were for Plasma (remember those 6mth warranties?!) :thumbsup:

Nope. LED is just the backlight, the display itself is still a plain old LCD. Genuine LED tvs are not practical to make (an 11" set costs over 3k!).

Amazing how easily the marketers stick out their lies and are believed.


Anyway, major flaw with these sets are they don't have very good blacks, about 0.11cd/m2. Go for a plasma instead, you get better blacks than that even on the very cheapest model.

Why are people posting LED and not 3DTV LED is soooooooooo last yeat.

Thankyou for any advice


There are pro's and con's for both to be honest. I would not worr about angles unless it will ACTUALLY be a problem, i.e. if you want to put it in a position where viewers will be more than say 70 degrees to the screen.

I researched for ages before I made a decision, general opinion seemed to be that LCD is good for gaming and general viewing and plasma is best for the avid movie watcher (better blacks and smoother motion). If I were you I'd go to a specialist place like Richer Sounds and view the sets properly, M&S et all just dones not give you the proper way to assess as the lighting is crap as are the setttings usually.

Hope that helps a bit, you are really asking an impossible question as there is no real answer, its down to personal choice, anyone saying any different is being a fanboy to THEIR chosen option :thumbsup:

yes the prices too.

i understand there been false reports of LED and backlight etc.
but there gotta be FULL led tv around. if not then LCD is the latest with LED backlight?
like you mention the prices, there a big difference in prices, so they are charging you more for the same old technology with led backlight, that rip off really. :x

The industry is misleading a lot of people with branding. I think Samsung got "told off" for saying that their new sets were LED when they were in fact LED backlit.

The main problem is how its "backlit". most employ an array of LED around the edge of the screen which means that unlike LCD (where the backlight has to be on or off as its one big light) they can turn off "sections" of light to make dark areas really black. This tech is the "older" method and is not as good as it makes out if you believe the reviewers.

The new way is from the likes of Philips where the screen is lit by LED all over the rear of the screen, this allows for very accurate black reproduction as they can turn off any area of the screen they like. I see two problems there:
1. Price, they start at like £1800!!!!
2. Reliability, what happens if one or two of those many LED's fails?!?!

Basically you could wait and wait and wait for new tech but you will never be "cutting edge" for long, thats progress for ya :thumbsup: I say that now the 3D and LED is on the market the time has come to jump into HD via LCD as the price has never been better :thumbsup:

How do you know its going to offer any better picture that LCD, the only one I have actually SEEN was an 11" screen which cost around £1000 per inch!!!!

You CANNOT judge a format on an 11" screen and just because it will be like 0.5cm think does not mean it will be a good TV format, me thinks you live a little too close to the Jones's :roll:
#30
thanks mate, that clear it up bit. the prices are so ridiculous. that whats stopping me from buying for one.

and yea i heard about 3d tvs coming up, my ps3 is 3d future proof already :-D all i need is a 3d tv in the future.

I think its allot of money for a 40inch screen, whats more Panasonics make better screens for TV/Bluray viewing. Unless you're going to use it in high light environments like a conservatery or use it as a PC monitor, LCD is not the best choice

I didnt vote but I wouldnt get 1 personally

It doesn't have Freeview HD - booo!!

Personal choice does not make the choice right, I'd agree that Panasonic make better screens (marginal nowadays) but can you point to a 40" Panny LCD (cos thats what we are talking about here, not Plasma!!) that has a 5yr warranty and 100hz!!

As someone else pointed out, a Pioneer Kuro would blow any Panny out of the water but it costs a lot more :thumbsup:
