    Hi,

    Im looking at two TV's at the minute

    Panasonic TX28DTX1C

    Panasonic TX28DTX10C

    The only major differences (apart from the colour) are the 10C has 100Hz scanning and the 1C has 50Hz. Also the 10C has a more powerful speaker output.

    Other differences are negligible - unless you know otherwise?!

    Is it worth paying the extra £80 for these features? Does 50Hz / 100Hz make much difference?

    Cheers

    Steve,

    Depends on how much you, and anyone else likely to watch, are troubled by flicker.

    Some people are, some are not.

    Suggest you do a test at your local dealer.

    Be aware that flicker is more noticeable out of the corner of your eye, as you'll see when looking at a line of sets in the shop.

    Obviously you'll be looking straight at whatever screen you eventually get at home, so don't be caught out.

    As a TG, I agree there's no point in spending more than you have to!

    there really isnt a definite answer to this question. If you do a search you will find loads of threads on this. Some people wouldn't buy a 50Hz set whilst others wouldn't buy a 100Hz set.

    my advice look at them both if you dont see a diff buy the cheaper set and put the extra money onto a decent scart cable and some dvds to watch!

    Try and find a 50 and 100Hz set side by side. There's much more to it than flicker. In particular the 100Hz will have better definition, crisper images and a more 3D depth to the picture.
    Balance this agains the 100Hz artifacts which are worse with some makers than others.

    I agonised long and hard too, but eventually bought 100Hz and have not been disappointed.
