1080p is a must if your watching lots of hd stuff on it, esp if its 42"

42" is normally plasma - 40/37/32" LCD - what's your budget?

Get a plasma cos the res is much better they do not blow up anymore either and do not cost that much more to run than an lcd or suffer screen problems anymore or artifacts.

A plasma is not just for christmas hopefully it lasts 2 or 3 days before going pop.

Another vote for Plasma... and Panasonic.

Let your eyes do the testing. View a Plasma and LCD Side by side in a showroom. Watch something thats colourful and vibrant, then something that has lots of black (eg as in outer space footage) and lastly lots of fast movement. You will notice a fair bit of difference (unless you have dodgy mince pies!)

Looks as though the leaning is towards plasma now, although until this thread I'd been led to believe they where a bit iffy, and it stick to LCD


It all depends who's got what suze.. A bit like the xbox verus the PS3 boys and gals...:thumbsup:

I've got a Samsung 40" 1080 LCD TV and the picture is stunning through a SkyHD receiver. I don't know much about plasma TV but in most reviews they do give a better picture through a TV aerial. I would go to your local retailers and have a look and see what you like. But a cheap carp TV can look good in a showroom and a top of the range TV can look rubbish because of the way they are set up..

THIS is a good price guide for LCD TV.. I will go for another LCD TV if I need to upgrade this one. I have got a Sony 26" LCD TV in my conservatory any the picture is not that good because it is not feed with a digital source.. I can't comment on the freeview through the TV's either as I live out in the sticks and have no such luxuries.. Also google the model number of the TV's you are interested in. Lots of good reviews out there..

Good luck in finding a bargain..:thumbsup:

There are so many old wives tales out there regarding Plasma sets, its a bit embarrassing. There have been a few recent threads here discussing.... if nothing else, it will give you a good chuckle!.

But to be fair, cost is probably the only consideration I'd look as being a reasonable argument for LCD over Plasma.

Thanks Guv, it really does help as we feel as though we are going around in circles here regarding information on the internet !!


As Edna says - you will get biased "fanboy" perspectives - which is why I've always said "let your eyes do the testing".

However, Ive yet to see a Plasma owner say LCD is better, but see LCD owners saying Plasma is better quite often.

Power consumption is the only area that LCD excels over Plasma, but it really shouldn't be an issue. It will still be less than half the standard CRT set!

Go see em Suze - like Guv says. Most will be connected up to HDDVD unit - picture quality good starter. I also asked to see a standard TV signal though all of the ones i looked at with sport as you can get a bit of ghosting...but modern sets are all pretty good and nothing to worry about.

I went for the 42 Panasonic plasma, though Samsung, Sony and LG get good reviews. Deals are excellent at the moment. Go for personal choice but seeing them in the flesh is a must.

Try the big TV departments John Lewis or Richer Sounds - often have proper viewing rooms.

No matter - life changing experience. I love the big telly!

If you go to John Lewis.... dont make your purchase there and then. See if you can find a cheaper retailer (that has a shop - ie not an internet retailer only) and try to get them to do a price match. That way your'll get a better price + a free 5 year warrenty.

Thats what I did with my Panasonic Plasma - though it is an effort to get them to agree! (Never knowingly undersold my ass!)

Have to vote plasma too. Panasonic give outstanding pictures for the price. But, plasma doesn't suit everyone. Might be worth reading up on the differences first, just google plasma vs lcd and there's plenty of info.

Also checkout http://www.avforums.com/forums/video-electronics/ plenty of info in the lcd/plasma forums, although each will be biased respectively, but good for info on specific sets.

Also agree with Guv (i think it he mentioned it) that plenty of people seem to post how much they prefer plasma after switching from LCD, yet very few, if any say they prefer LCD after switching from plasma...

I certainly find plasma gives a 'much' more natural picture than lcd, and have both in the house.
I use my Panasonic PX80 for V+ / SKY / Xbox (including streaming HD content) and couldn't fault it :thumbsup:

I did look into the power consumption, and came to the conclusion that upto 42" screens there isn't a huge difference between plasma and LCD.
50" and the difference started to jump, as for 46" not sure!

Yeah - took me ages to get them to pricematch - but got it eventually. Persevere with JL for the 5 yr guarantee if you have time.

Panasonic gets my thumbs up but each to their own.
