    Ok, I have narrowed my search down to 2 42" Plasmas -

    1. LG 42PC1DA

    2. Panasonic TH42PX60B


    Does anyone know which is the better one to go with?? Both seem similar spec and I can get them both at the same price.

    Im not bothered about the standard sound quality as I will be buying a Yamaha V59 surround sound system to go with it..

    thanks :)

    Both are good but the Panny suffers from the Purple snake issue.

    I recommend you to have a look at the Pio or wait for few more weeks until the issue gets completely resolved.

    If you desperate go for the LG but do learn the pros and cons of these TVs before heading to pay the bill.

    well I dont want them Purple marks so looks like I will be going LG :)..

    Was in Comet and the guy knew all about them (more or less told me exactly what all the review sites said about it :) ) He ever warned me about image "Burn in" which was good of him.

    I was originally looking at a 32" Samsung LCD for £689 (but with discount codes takes it down to £569) but didnt like the way they looked on football games Eg when the ball is kicked at high speed. Then I noticed the Panasonic and LG 42" HD Plasmas for £809 and that sort of made me forget about the smaller LCD's and look at them :)!!!

    Oh yea, Unfortunatly the Pioneer is a little out my price range :) (Only want to spend £900 MAX)
