OK - the most important things Budget - 350£ maximum. Usage - mainly movies and sports. Location - the will be installed in this studio in the place of the desk - I would appreciate if the TV is visiable from the bed so I am leaning towards 42-43 inch Plasma but a smaller LED is an option, too, if there are enough benefits. Me - I am a newbie - currently usng a 22 LCD LG...never bought an HDTV before so I am not very knowledgeable. I'd prefer to have a good USB movie playback support (including MKV, FLV if possible). A couple of HDMI ports is the minimum - 3 is preferred. Good quality sound would be appreciated although I've read those thin TVs don't come with good sound. Not fussed about weight, designm thickness, etc - it won't be wall-mounted. I will look to use it with SD with Sky + some Blu Ray movies (I could invest in HD subscription if I get Full HD res and upscaling is not good enough - should be great on stuff like footy and F1). Here's the ones I've found so far within budget: Plasma: Samsung PS43D450 PANASONIC TX-P42X50B LG 42PT353 LED: LG 37LV355U LCD: LG 42LK450 Sony 40BX420BU Slight variation in prices doesn't bother me too much, I will be purchasing it in about a month so I'd expect they'd be within 20 pounds off each other for similar technology. Anyone with more experience shed some light please? Unfortunately I can't really decide on what I want as I haven't had any experience with such tellys.
