Best value 1080P 24FPS Plasma/LCD


Standard Member

I'm thinking of upgrading from my Panasonic pv500cab (1080i) to a 1080p/24fps set

Just after your advice on what is currently best value for money, I dont really have a budget as I could go all the way for the Pioneer Kuro, but dont want to spend two an half grand if theres a set out there delivering what I need for £800, if you know what I mean!

My set up - Sky HD, Sony BD30 Blu-ray player, Onkyo 605, KEF2005 Speakers

Thanks in advance!!!

sorry, forgot to say im looking for 50"

Go to some shops and have a look at TVs at different price points within your budget. The differences are pretty clear if you spend a little while looking at them (my Mum can see the differences, so I'm sure you will!).

The Kuros are widely acknowledged as the best picture quality TV you can buy currently. But "best value" is a judgement call that only you can make, especially if there is no limit on your budget. For me, paying a lot more for a Kuro was worth it. I'd suggest you audition at least the following sets though, and having looked at them decide if the extra money is worth it for the more expensive models! Happy hunting !
- Sony KDL50-W4000
- Panasonic TH50PZ800
- Pioneer PDP5090 / KRP-500
