    My current 40" Samsung is nearing it's end. It got dead pixels, which are spreading - to a level which is irritating now, and will surely get worse.

    We can tolerate this for a bit longer, so can probably wait if better deals are likely to come up, but it is hard to know what our exact time frame is.

    Whilst looking around I am drawn to the LG42LM670T - it seems to be available at John Lewis or Costco, with their 5 year guarantees for £840 or £850, and a Google search shows it below £720 in some shops - but I doubt that includes a 5 year guarantee - and whether they're trustworthy is another matter.

    So, basically, my "needs" are based on this set.

    Budget - £850

    I also have to add in wall mounting, so appreciate any saving that can be made.

    Size - Up to 47" - not the biggest of living rooms - so no need to go very big - but have a 40" just now and can understand going a bit bigger.

    Screen Type - No Preference - LED, Plasma - whatever.

    Gaming - Occasional Only - I own a PS3 but it's level of usage is low. It more serves as a media player than anything else nowadays.

    3D? - Nice option to have, but not a deal breaker. Not a definite but I figure if I don't get now it will be another 5 years plus. I favour the passive option of the likes of LG, because of the cheaper glasses. I have 2 young kids, so wouldn't expect the more expensive glasses of Active sets to survive.

    I have Sky HD, and would get their 3D channel also if I had a set capable.

    Have I forgot to mention anything? Probably.

    If anyone can advise on this set, or any others that may meet my needs, I appreciate any guidance. (Along with reliable places to buy, and wher to get best deals, etc.)

    Thank you.

    Samsung E550 plasma, Panasonic UT50 or ST50 would be the sets Id look at.
