    hey all,

    I need a new bigger TV than what I currently have. I was going to buy a Panny 32PD50 but I can't find em any where for under £700. So It has come my conclusion that CRT's are out... gone. Well the good uns have gone.

    So I am now thinking about buying a plasma. I have yet to read anything about plasmas yet but I do want to get a price tag in my head.

    So I have £700 now but I know thats now going to buy me a 32" let alone a good one.

    But Im having a guess that I will be looking at Panasonics and Pionier models because they have nice black bezels :thumbsup:
    But I know its just not about looks so like I said I will be doing my reading. Its a shame I have to save up now though.... I need a damn monitor for my pc as well which is going to set me back £300. God damn it lol.

    Cheers for your time.
    Toby

    Ok what about if I went with something bigger. Would that open any choices for different makes?

    I was thinking of spending £1500 on one. Its just I support Panasonic and Pioneer. Only had bad experances with sonys. :(

    But I will look into the links you gave me.
    Cheers

    If you go up to 37" then you have a choice of Pannys :D If you can fit 42" or 43" into your room then you have the free range of Pannys or Pioneers. :)

    Hmmm, 88 posts. :rolleyes:

    Tons of info on the pwd6 or 7, which I guess you'll go for.
    Unless you can run to the pv500.
    Don't touch the Hitachi 7200, it's crap (although I have one and think it's great)

    I suggest you read the threads :smashin:

    PS what's the best deal you can do on a pwd7 ??

    Or are you serious?????

    Tob,

    No probs mate :)

    When Badger refers to a PWD7, he means a Panasonic TH37PWD7 or TH42PWD7, these are plasma display panels (PDP's) so are more like a computer monitor than a TV. i.e. you would need to connect Sky or a video with analogue tuner in order to watch TV on them. Most Home Cinema enthusiasts prefer the display panel route as you can tailor a package for your specific needs as opposed to having a generic TV plus the images on a panel are more 'tweakable' than a TV, ohhh and the biggest plus is that panels are cheaper than TV's.

    Hum that sounds good. Abit like the Dell 2105 (think thats the model) 24" beast. Yeh I was looking at that when thinking about buying a monitor but its way out of price tag for a pc monitor and not big enough for a TV.

    So I would need to buy a free view box or a TV tuner if I wanted to watch TV. Im guessing thats not much. About £200 for decent one. Might even be able to get a HDD recorder for that.

    I will check out thouse models as well.
    :D
