    Hick bit of advice if anyone is able....

    I had been looking at the Samsung PS51E6500 plasma for a long time but they now seem as rare hens teeth so having to rethink :-/

    The second option was always the Panasonic TXL47ET5B LED but just before I order from JL wanted to see if there's nothing else I should consider?

    Needs:
    46" or larger (no more than 55")
    £850 max (pref from JL for warranty and ease of delivery to Jersey)
    Occasionally SD broadcasts
    Some HD (F1 and blu-ray)
    Mix of SD & HD movie viewing
    Xbox360 (but not that often)
    Room is quite light - TV next to east facing French doors, though possibly moving in 6-8 months
    Not fussed if active or passive 3D as can see benefits of both (not had headache issues)

    Any help or suggestions appreciated!

    Thanks

    Now looking like a straight out fight between the 47ET5B at £725 versus the 50GT50B at £830...opinions anyone? Both seem to have a few complaints but both generally good sets!?!

    ps - costs based on JL with VAT off and local tax at 5% on (in Jersey, Channel Islands).... pricematch for the GT in at present :)

    For me it is no contest. Not only is the GT50 bigger but it is also the far better panel.

    Thanks - P50GT50 ordered and can't wait for it to arrive sometime next week hopefully! Has ended up costing £787 all things considered which I think is fantastic :-D

    JL at £999.95....price matched to £899...then as I'm in Jersey (Channel Islands) they take off VAT (20%) and add local tax (5%), so coming out a good bit cheaper - plus still get free delivery :-D

    TPS....but with JL price matching I think it's your luck if they match or not...
