Hi at the moment it is quite rare to find a 1080p plasma set for under £1000. Even though currently most
PS3 games are 720p. Also plamsa aren't recommened for playing games console on

Fantastic TV, Works Great with my PS3 :)

Absolutely faultless, got mine for about £825 with the Dixons offer they had on in November. Well worth the money !

The TV has great reviews everywhere (Think it was voted best TV of the year at a few places)

If its Full HD you want, then for the price, you cant beat this set.

I'd stay well clear of Phillips! The pannys have got their "best TV awards" for good reason. However, what is it about Phillips that attracts? I almost bought one once - based on price. I soon realised what a poor choice that would have been!

Best advice - go to the stores to view the different sets you are thinking about and try to compare side by side. Take a gander over to AVForums - you are likely to get some decent advice - plus all the info you have asked will already be there.

well i have a ps3 and its hook up to a 1080p tv and my 1080p games do look better than 720p ones but the level of difference is minute on games that don't have people eg gran turismo/burnout. For blu-ray 1080p is better than 720p for colour and overall picture

He he. Dont sweat it... just a bit of tongue in cheek re 1082P!

To be honest, if you are happy with your purchase, thats all that matters!

Why is it a plasma you want?


Speaking personally (and obviously not for the OP!), I would only consider a Plasma for a 40" set or above.

The warmth in colour and contrast is much better (IMHO) in plasmas than LCD. In fact the only thing I would conceed that the LCD is better with is power consumption... but then Plasma is so much more efficient than CRT its a bit of a mute point.

Hi as above i heard if going for 40" or above its best to get a plasma also yes this will be used for mostly bluerays so at the moment im really considering to get that panasonic from electrical deals. Yeh i thought that since the price was high for philips the quality was probably better but im obviously wrong.

I thought LCD had a better life span, also they don't suffer from burn in, so can be used with consoles unlike plasmas.


The current Panasonics have a half life of 200,000 hours. I havent seen the figures quoted for LCD - but Id be surpised if its as long as that!

Yes, if you leave a console on screen for several days, you will get burn, but then so will anything else. Mine is used with a console without any ill effect. That problem was prevelant in older plasmas, but not so now.

(PS - I'm glad you didnt pull the old urban myth out of the hat about re-gassing!!!!!)

As for the company in that link.... it was a very quick search. You may find cheaper - or one you could price match with at John Lewis and get a free 5 year warrenty. But like I said earlier - let your eyes guide you. You will probably be spending a lot of time sitting in front of this set. Make the right choice.....and go view them first!

Personally I wouldnt think you would need to pay more than the panny price.

But if you insist, take a look at the Pioneers. Most reviews seem to place their 1080i range as having the best picture on the market. Ive not seen one to comment personally though.

Have you had a chance to view that Panny yet?

You would be surprised how quickly you get used to it making it just look like a normal TV set.

I was toying with a 50" when I bought mine. Decided on comments people made, to just get the 42". I wished now I hadn't listened!
#21
Nah im 150% sure i want a 42" lol ive seen a 50" any they way to big.

Seen a pioneer in action but not to keen still going to keep on looking but the panny is at a very attractive price.
