    Hi All,

    I am looking at getting a 55" 3D TV and the ones I have narrowed it down to are as follows :

    LG 55LW550T
    SAMSUNG 55D8000
    SONY 55HX923

    So far I have managed to try out the LG and the Sony.

    I found the Sony really flickery and it started to give me a headache. The LG seemed good, but didnt manage to demo any sport on it.

    Struggling to find someone to demo me the Samsung atmo.

    I would be interested if other people looked at the same options and what they decided.

    Also what is the difference between the LG 550 and 650?

    And finally is the LG 980T that much better for the price difference?

    Thanks

    Paul

    I have the 650T, love it, but I must admit I am not into sports so can't comment on performance during a footie match, but Fifa 11 works fine! :D

    Another vote for the 55" LG here :smashin:

    Just using it on Freeview and watching some stuff on USB at the moment and really impressed so far.

    Then again I don't have sky and am not a gamer, not noticed any problems with sport though.
