pics?

I've got the 37" version of the Toshiba in my bedroom, running my 360.

It's awesome.

I googled TV's for you mate and "came across" this particular beauty. What do you think?

If you have that kind of budget m8, I wouldnt even bother with LG. You'd get much better top quality solid build TV's for that price; Samsung, Sony, Toshiba etc.

lg and samsung have the best lcd screens though dont they?
i used to have a 32" and it was fab so really swayed towards that
i'd prefer something cheaper though.

Samsung...without a doubt are superior in build quality, robustness and reliability....honestly couldnt say the same for LG based on my experience with their products...one time I had one of their TVs and due to a manufacturing fault in the TV, it caught fire internally and almost burned the house down.....would never buy one again. Bought a samsung and its solid m8.

If you after a good tv, why dont you look on John Lewis web site, I get a PS50A457 £599.00 Free delivery and 5 years warranty. Good luck.

anyone?

I'm a Sony fan. I think the picture quality is excellent and the PS3 looks really good on it. I've got the 40" kdlv4000, which I think has just been discontinued to make way for the W4000, so you might be able to get a bargin on one.

Or my sister has got a 50" Panasonic, not sure which one, and the picture on that is really good too, even close up.

In future, I'd buy either one of these makes after seeing the picture quality first hand. Bit of a vague and useless reply, but just thought I'd let you know my opinion on them
