    To be honest, I'm tired of reading reviews and specifications, I need someone to just tell me what to buy:D.

    I know very little about the technology so please help me out.

    This is what I do know^^

    -I will be sitting 7 to 8 feet away.
    -I will be buying a PS3 very shortly
    -I want it to look great with SD as I don't know how long it will be until I can afford Sky HD
    -I want freeview built in
    -I have a cambridge audio DVD89 which will be connected via HDMI
    -I want a black finish (to match my rack and audio setup)
    -Budget: £1000, but that's flexible if necessary


    Thank you for any suggestions/guidance :smashin:.

    Thanks a lot for the reply CHRISGEO:smashin:.
    What is ED though?

    Also, is it going to look really nice with SD?

    Not sure if they're still doing bundles though.

    There is Still issues and I guess no matter what they do with PLASMA technology it will exists always. SCREEN / PHOS burn can happen on plasma more than it can on LCD.

    Try the 37Z3030D Toshiba LCD... £800 aprox.. At Sound and Vision or even some others. Not a bad screen and is Full HD also at 8' away and being 37" the SD will look very good and the HD even Better....

    Well thanks a lot for all your input but I decided to go with the TH42PZ70 as 70% of the time I will be using it for movies, and for the foreseeable future, standard def.
