    looking for a 37 " plus lcd plasma tv please

    hi just had a interesting call with argos as our new bush 37 "lcd has dead pixels.they said this is perfectly acceptable and basically i should expect it so i have insisted on a refund and now urgently need to get a replacement but want a quality brand .
    I would really appreciate any advice or if you know of any great deals at the mo .

    thank you in advance

    From Lcd monitors in the past, I think most comapnies allow upto 5 dead pixel, Some warranties are for 3 dead pixels.

    is toshiba any better .Am i just being to fussy then .its just if deadpixels start appearing in more places it was not worth changing from our standard crt television .
    i don't have a clue when it comes to these televisions except i like the samsungs .
    the tv i brought was only £500 so only really want to spend a around £650 if that is realistic .

    hi sonia.i've been looking for the best price for the37'' samsung and the best i've found to date is at [url]www.xomy.com[/url] for£653.52 but they are waiting for new stock.can anyone beat this price?:?:

    I'd recommend the Samsung LE37R87BDX LCD had good reviews and is under £700 at some ]shops

    I went for this when someone posted it in the main forum
    I'm just waiting for them to get new stock, shouldn't be long.
    It's Toshiba 37" LCD with tosh dvd player £649

    Yes, For 37" plus plasma would look sharper compared to an lcd, People aren't 100% sure how long a plasma will last, But as more and more are coming out, It should become cheaper to re-gas etc

    Better makes?

    Samsung are the leaders.

    But for most expensive makes, You are paying for more inputs, Some extra settings etc Some of the screens in the better makes are normally Samsung or phillips anyway!

    Samsung are definately not the leaders just read reviews Panasonic are the leaders in the plasmas and Pioneers.

    Agreed, and Sony's top dog for LCD's. But you'll not get any of those for £650 unless you're ok to drop down to a smaller screen. Samsung are a nice blend of quality and price though.

    On a good quality LCD TV you shouldn't get dead pixels unless you drop the thing or it's getting on a bit, bearing in mind LCD TV's are supposed to have a 60,000 hour lifetime that's a lot of TV watching before you can expect problems. But even then you wouldn't expect them on a decent screen, it's the light source that has the lowest life expectancy (60,000 hours). They can be a problem with cheaper screens though. Also with Plasma you get the problem of screen burn, although they're not as bad as they used to be (Plasmas usually are only expected to have a 30,000 hour lifetime. But that's still a lot of TV watching).
