Hello guys!!! still not decided about which television, but i have those 3:
Toshiba X3030, Samsung M87, Sharp LC42XD1E.
i just have 2 votes for Samsung but is 2inch smaller.
But the question is:
ive read about Toshiba model support 1366x768 on VGA output only.
Is there any problem if i use any DVI-HDMI cable to connect from my PC-TV???
Also i know is annoying always this question, but what do you think about the plasma option:smashin::thumbsdow?
The tv is for PC output, but not gaming, HD movies and probably freeview.
tks all.

Why not a 1080p plasma?It combines the higher resolution and the plasma definite excellent SD performance!!!A good choice is The Panasonic 42PZ70 or 42PZ700

Between the three I would choose the Toshiba or the Samsung!!
The 1080p has an advantage because you will use it for pc use.However that make SD look dont so good as an 720p tv or a plasma tv.Unfortunately the Panasonic plasma 42PZ70 costs 1000£ cheapest price....Can you give the 100£ more?

tks again CHRISGEO!!!
I think if i choose the LCD will stay with Toshiba because is 2" more. But i really thinking about the Samsung PS-50C96HD. Resuming i have a 8800GTX video card in my PC and most of the movies i download in 720p and sometimes 1080p. I really want know your opinion about this plasma TV because is really difficult to make a choice, some people say is a bad TV, others say is good. i couldn't found many reviews as i liked about PS-50C96HD, thats why i make this question to you, because i think u have a knowhow about TV. I dont need a WOW breathtaking TV. This cost money, and a lot. I just want good contrast, color, decent definition and good value for money. Unfortunately i dont have to much money to buy Sony or Panasonic.
best regards, hope you answers soon.
