50X10B or 42G10?

still debating whether to push boat out for a 42 or 46G10 (an extra £200+) - 1080p future proofing would be the only plus factor really (though with 3D coming out this year are the G10's really just another stop gap?) or just go for a 50X10B

SD sky and some blu-ray - viewing distance of about 8.5 ft

thoughts please

:)

edit - just been reading about flicker on the S10/G10's - that would do my head in tbh!

50X10B it is then

I spent ages deciding and in the end went for the 50"X10 - great reviews from SD material, HD Ready and the price it was a no brainer. I manged to get mine for £640 last week with delivery and was here next day.

The more I watch my X10 the more I'm disappointed with it to be honest. I just can't seem to find any picture settings I'm 100% happy with and although some stuff looks amazing (e.g. UP in 1080p) a lot of stuff looks pretty mediocre and 'soft' to me. Kinda regretting swapping my Samsung 50PS530B for this now despite the fluctuating brightness the Samsung suffered from. I think at 50" I'd be very wary of getting anything other than a full HD screen to be honest...

i know the 50" is not 1080p but it's better res than the 42" (1366 x 768)

reading this forum for SD viewing the X10 panel deffo seems to be the best

Hi Dal - are you connected to Sky HD or standard - what have your viewing results been like?

8.5 feet for a 42 inch 1080 lines screen is probably too far to get full benefit of the occasional bluray and as its mostly sd stuff i would go for the bigger screen x10.
in fact i think whenever its a choice between 2 similar models with the smaller size being 1080 lines and the other choice is a bigger screen but lower resolution,id nearly always go for the bigger screen

Well it's not wow'ing me with it's SD performance to be honest, perhaps I'm sat too close (approx 8ft) and another couple of feet would change my opinion....
