Hi

Im looking for a plasma screen which can display 1080i signals and is under £1300. Im currently looking at the Samsung PS42Q7.
Is this a good choice or is there another plasma which is better for around my budget?

Thanks

I've been looking at the Samsung PS42Q7, although i didn't know it could display 1080 images?

Can you post links to what you have read about the Samsung PS42Q7.

Hold your horses here wha do you mean "display 1080i" ???? do you mean dsiplay 1080i with no scaling? Display 1080i signals? Or do you mean get a good picture from 1080i sources

Can't speak about the Sammy as I don't own one, but have a look here:

And some reviews about the LG can be found here:

Anyway you should also try to compare them side by side and see what you like more:hiya:

upscaling DVD players are a waste of money (the panel scales anyway) and 99% of cases does a better job

Ok then what DVD player should I get for around £60 as my current surround sound system/dvd player dont have component out. Also I will need a dvd player that I can hook me surround sound system up to?

well your surround sound will need the appropriate inputs £60 is naff all budget for a DVD player good ones start at £300 and go up to £1500 before you get into silly money :eek:

If you have a tuner and sound I don't think you'll go far wrong with the 42PWD8 :smashin:

My PWD7 makes me grin from ear to ear every time I switch it on - the PQ is amazing. I have just bought a 26" Sony LCD for the bedroom which pales in comparison...

Try a search, they are respected panels.
