Bush 42 Inch HD Ready Freeview Plasma 3D TV @ ARGOS - £299

Found 2nd Oct 2012
Seems a good price for a 42" plasma tv, although it is only HD ready but for the price i still think it's a good deal especially considering the added benefit of the 3D features.

Ordinary brand n plasma not LED!
You mean led backlit LCD. Cos their isn't any TVs where the screen is made of led lights, except a couple of not yet released oled models.

Ordinary brand n plasma not LED!

I never said it was LED?!

Also I noticed the refresh rate is only 60hz, not great for being a plasma which are usually around 600hz

No idea of the res of an ipad, nor do i care, but do you sit holding 42" screens in your lap much? If not, why are you trying to make such an idiotic comparison?
Any real world reviews from people here that have bought it?
