Hello, I have finally got the mrs into thinking we need a new tv so lets get a plasma, At the min it looks like she wants to get a unit around the 37inch but I feel go the whole 9 yards and get the 42.. I have been reading through this forum over the weekend but at the min there is way to much info overload. The only thing that seems to stick is a panny p6, which is just in my price range. However we did take a look around the shops i.e. currys comet (but will want to purchase else ware). The units we saw are the following, pan th37pa20 and its 42 brother £1999-2500 this set seemed to have a excellent pic, but I believe they are now end of line? Also not to keen on the built in speakers, then we moved on to the Hyundai I think it was about £1600, my god what was that, the pic wash horrendous maybe was not set up correctly) just looked washed out but I must admit like the style due too speakers being removable . Then on to currys the first one I saw was a techwood £1800 and to be honest I am fairly impressed obviously with the price and the picture (when I took a look at the settings I noticed contrast was on 100%)also looked good even on sky, again its got removable speakers and a turner box, but I did notice the connection lead would need to extended, Then as I was leaving we noticed another Panasonic all I can say we were gob smacked but this was way out of my league at 3.6k then next to it was a Samsung showing the same dvd monsters inc, again I like the style of the unit (speakers again) but the pic seemed to have a bluish tint on it also a bit dark, not much contrast, tried to change the settings but this did not help, is this normal. I know there are many more manufactures but its a mind field as you probably discovered yourselves at first.. I will now be looking at richer sounds and sound&vision, just need a few pointers in which way I should be heading.. Sorry for going on but if anyone has any of the above units please could you let me know how you are getting on with them. I must admit though I really like the style of the techwood and the Samsung (I believe there is a new model around) around 2k limit Thanks Simon .
