42" Philips Plasma is only about £40 more

Not a good price for this TV.
You should be looking for a deal around £399 or less.

empire direct is normally not to bad a place for tvs and thay have this at 699 so 550 seems a really good price.
If you can get this tv for 399 then that would be fantastic the phillips 5 series are more than that.

Have you seen it for under £500 anywhere?

As the saying goes the put the link where your post is.

Voting hot - I know a 42" plasma can be got for a little bit more but LCDs have some advantages over plasma (as plasma has some advantages over LCDs). If someone wants an LCD then this is a good price for a 37"......

What advantages do LCDs have?

Adamo

What advantages do LCDs have?



No screen burn
Generally better suited to pc display (also often higher resolution)
Lighter

Although i'm still looking at buying a Plasma, as anything over 40" plasma is often regarded as better, but it's often down to personal taste.

(advantages of plasma: better at motion handling, better colour production, better black levels, bigger screen sizes, better viewing angle) enough there to sway me anyway...

LCD quote higher viewing angles, but they tend to fade as soon as you move off centre, where as plasma keep a better picture off centre. But does vary from model to model.

And you're right, LCD's sell more, but thats down to the most popular size screen being 32", which are only available in LCD.

The smallest plasma is 40" (there is 1 37" model at the moment) so most people will opt for LCD (and LCD goes down in size to 16" or so)

Smallest plasma is 37" ;-)

Ok, there may be more than 1 model, not searched, but another discussion thread on AVForums mentioned there is currently only 1.....

Any size LCD over 32" gets its pants beaten off by a plasma (£ for £). Just wish I'd researched more before I bought my 37" £1000+ Toshiba Regza a year ago (its awful for sport as massive motion blur)). Just mind your electric bill as plasma consumes at least twice as much (some as high as 500W).

ok ok, so someone had to find one. But the point is that plasmas generally start at 40 or 42".

Having been looking into a new tv for the last few weeks, I was originally expecting to go for an LCD, but having read through AVforums, it seems plasma is more likely the way i'll go, especially as I now think a 50" screen would be nice.

Not sure about the power though, as most places seem to quote roughly the same consumption, as LCD is a constant rate and plasmas uses more depending on the brightness of the screen. Overall they average out pretty similar. (just watch dark movies then you'll be safe with plasma:thumbsup: )

How is it better suited for PC display? I run my MacBook through it and you can't tell the difference. Screen burn hardly ever happens.

No, there are and have been a few 32" plasmas for sale.

No, the smallest is 32" from what I can remember, the next step up is 37", of which there are quite a few models. People opt for LCD as it's cheaper and available in more places.

No they don't. They mainly start at 37", there aren't many 40" plasmas at all.

My advice test if for yourself.

IMO at the mo on a 42"+ size tv £for£ I'd choose a plasma as I'd prob keep it for 3 years tops, but if I were one of the people who intend to keep it for 10 years I'd prob go with a full HD LCD (1920*1080)(p).

My 32" Sony CRT cost me £900 how things move on.

A lot of what I was saying is general comments, you maybe able to get 32" plasmas, but not easily. LCD are most popular at that screen size because of the amount of choice.
LCD tend to be better for PC display as they are often higher resolution (but not all!!!!) a lot of top brand plasmas at 42" are 1024*768, LCD's tend to be higher even at 32" or smaller.
Also LCD technology produces a better image for pc's.
BUT, this doesn't mean plasmas can't be used for pc, and they they can't display a good image, i'm just stating some of the advantages it has. At the end of the day it comes down to each model and how well it performs. I'm sure a lot of plasmas can out perform a lot of LCD's as a pc display.

I'm in favour of plasma overall, and thats what i'm looking to get.

There is no 'one is better than the other' they both have benefits, you just need to decide what suits you best for how you are going to use it.

Hope that all makes sense.....
