    Hey troops,

    Have been giving serious thought to upgrading to 50" from a 37LC2DB for some time now, but IR issues have been putting me off the PG6000 (although, every time I see one in a store, it seems to be bulletproof and the picture is awesome). Have seen some good deals on the PX8 and can probably get a PZ80 from around £1150 (although this is a tad over the price range).

    Basically the questions are - is the PG6000 worth the risk? is the PX8 a decent telly? (oh, and should I really just try my best to persuade the good lady that a PZ80 is the best bet?)

    Any ideas?

    90% SkyHD (although obviously, most of the stuff is in SD), 10% gaming on PS3 and occasional blu-ray films, and viewing distance is around 10-12 feet I reckon.

    Just noticed that ask direct have PZ80's for £950, although I think I read somewhere that they don't deliver TV's over 42" in size :(
