It's either a Pio436, Panny PX600 or a Hitachi 9700 for that budget if you can't afford a Fuji 58 series panel :smashin:

Demo them all again and again on different sources vefore taking the plunge :lesson: Watch them all with different feeds and get your eyes busy to make the choice :rolleyes: Though you won't regret any of the above telly's ;) Search here the different threads related to those models :D

Hope this helps :hiya:

If you want a 50" on your budget the LG 50PX4D is highly recommended. Excellent picture quality and feature set, and a fantastic price. Not sure if you can get it from John Lewis, but it's worth finding out.

The LG 50PX4D is definitely better than the Hitachi, arguably better than the Pioneer, and only narrowly behind the Panasonic - but it's got 8" over all of them. There is also a 42" model (the LG 42PX5D) and I'm fairly sure that the same applies as with the 50" model.

Couldn't agree more. Everyone here will have a recommendation, but it's what looks best to your own eyes. As said though, you won't regret any of the above models.

From what I have demoed (apart from Hitachi which I haven't) then Panasonic 42PX600 is the one to look at.

What's your viewing distance? I know someone who bought a 50" plasma, and they sit like 1.5m from the TV, and everyhting looks crap LOL!

I haven't compared them side by side, sorry. Quite a tough one, but that PX600 from JL iwth 5yr Warranty and 20% off is a tasty offer.
Inded it is a good offer (is better than the best pricematch?) but it isnt the best PQ if you want taht lok elsewhere (doesnt mean a PX600 is a a good telly but compared to what you do with a panel like PHD8 is so much better i would rarely reconmend the PX "veira" over the PHD
