Hi everyone I am wanting a new TV. I have posted the one I am thinking of getting, but I would like your opinions to whether the upgrade would be worth it.

The current TV I have is: sony.co.uk/pro…ecs

The new TV I want is this:

marksandspencer.com/Phi…s-3

Is it worth the upgrade?

I'll also metion that I watch a lot of films, play games on my Xbox 360, and I am wanting to get Sky + HD.

Well the new TV you posted is 1080p and has a higher contrast ratio. The sony you have is 720p. Also the philips is 100hz. If you can afford it go for it. You might notice a difference but it's difficult to know without seeing the two. There is only so much information you can gain from the specs sheet. Read reviews around the net. And theres no harm in buying it and sending it back if you don't think it was worth it.

Also it should be noted that Sky HD only broadcasts in 1080i (I think) so the upgrade in resolution would only really be of benefit to your Xbox.

If you notice any ghosting on your current TV during fast paced films or xbox games then it may be worth the upgrade to the faster response time.

Hope this helps.

Can I has your old one?

I've only got a CRT
