    Hi all,

    I'm about to make my first steps into the world of LCD. I'm currently viewing
    Sky (SD) on 28" Sony CRT, and movies/PS3/football on a Panasonic PT-AE100E projector. So the priority with the TV is HD performance but I would also want above-average SD performance until I make the jump to Sky HD (when they drop that silly £10/month charge for example)

    I've been reading various forums (mostly this one!) and have had my mind set on a Sony 46W3000 for the past couple of months.

    Now I've read people with purple/green tinging on blacks, and various people with clouding issues. So I begin to have my doubts...

    Aha, I'll go for a Philips 47PFL9632 but now read of problems with wavy lines of 50Hz and issues in 1080P

    Or even a Sharp LC52-X20E/LC46-X20E but I read of banding problems and other issues with panning.

    I could save a few hundred and go for a 46V3000..but people report flickering on some Blu-ray and PS3 games.

    I really am stuck now. I've got approval from the Missus to go up to £1550 and ideally I'd like to get some kind of extended guarantee.

    Which 46"+ TV would YOU go for?

    Thanks in advance

    Hmm,the best you have to do is close your ears and eyes and buy the one that your heart love the W3000.The fact that some have faults doesnt mean that yours is going to be faulty

    If you keep reading these forums you would NEVER buy a LCD/Plasma. Remember most people write in when they have a problem, never to say how good a set is.

    Well, my Pioneer 5th generation plasma is now just over three years old and I have never been anything other than delighted with it. Only problem was the well documented one with Sky HD and Pioneer fitted a new HDMI board completely free of charge - can't get better than that.

    Must make the point however that it is a plasma, rather than LCD which the OP asked about.

    Cheers,

    Martin.
