    but with other specific requirements:

    I like natural skin tones! Look at this photo http://img1.lesnumeriques.com/test/78/7807/Boulanger-stand-tv-g.jpg I like the colors of the TV with 1199 € (right - I cannot identify the model) and not the colors of the one with 1390 €.
    I watch TV (only SD broadcast) at 3m distance but the room is quite big (8x8m with big windows on the one side wall). I own a Panasonic 42" TX-L42E6 but the viewing angles are awful!

    I think I need something between 42 and 50".
    There are some sets I am interested in:

    a) Panasonic 50'' TX-L50B6
    b) Panasonic 50" TX-L50ET60
    c) LG 50" LA620S
    d) LG plasma 50" PN6500
    e) Samsung plasma 50" F5000
    f) Panasonic plasma 42" ST60

    I have seen only the last one which I like a lot! But I think I would prefer something bigger at this price level...

    Sorry for my bad english!

    How much are you getting the 42" ST60 for? I paid just over £ 700 for mine and I still think it was worth it.

    Bargain! I downsized from a cheap 1080i Samsung Plasma to a 42" ST60 and don't miss the extra inches. If I were you I'd get the ST60!

    What about the mirroring effect? Will it be a problem with windows at side wall?

    In my rented one bedroom flat the windows are not directly behind the ST60 so I cannot see the windows reflecting on the TV screen. I found with my previous plasma that I soon got used to the reflective effect.

    Plasma has a more natural look to it.

    After looking at a plasma tv in a similar room (same light conditions) we decided to go for LED...

    Final decision between Panasonic 50'' TX-L50B6 (600 €), LG LA620S 47" (639 €), LG LA620S 50" (750 €).

    I would prefer the 50" but I am not so sure because we use the tv mainly for SD channels. May be the 47" is better in terms of hiding bad broadcast resolution?

    TX-L50B6 has ALPHA IPS panel which has good reviews while LG has 3D and is a smart tv. I do not think about using 3D now but who knows...

    I would like to see these two tv sets in comparison but I can not find the TX-L50B6 in any local store to look at. Is it closer to my requirements for color reproduction? Should I consider also a Philips one?
