    Hi,

    a friend of mine is looking to buy an lcd tv, he wants one for his lounge and one for the bedroom. at the weekend we saw some nice looking screens at purely plasma in bluewater, made by LAVA (swedish). My mate was offered a deal on a 40" and 30" for £4K. purely plasma are the sole uk supplier bu i have checked swedish prices and this is about £600 more, but obviously when you take into account import tax etc and the fact that generally products are cheaper to buy in their country of origin etc etc.

    does anyone else think this is a decent deal? any other alternatives yo can recommend?

    more importantly has anyone got one or heard anything about LAVA???

    many thanks for any help!

    No probs m8, :smashin:

    Just looking at the Lava site, I haven't seen this reveiwed anywhere and haven't had any experiences with it myself but it looks to have quite a low luminance level and contrast ratio.
    Also can't see if it is HD ready or not but that may not be a problem for your mate. It does state DTV-in whatever that is?

    Steve.

    no offence mate, but they look like tripe.....

    your better off going for brands that you can get in this country,.....

    if lava were any good, they would be stocked in comets, dixons etc....

    £4k is pretty pricey too....

    You can get a better 30 inchfor 830 pounds

    Toshiba from pixmania......much better screen.....

    then u got 3k left for a 37 inch, you can get the phillips 9986......

    (that would be much smarter)


    :clap: :hiya:

    It is a 15:9 screen not a true widescreen 16:9. You would have to ask them ( in writing! ) if the DVI supported HDCP. Looks like a middle of the road spec to me. I would personally buy a mainstream set from Sharp, Phillips, etc who all have new screens arriving over the summer. Even their current offerings are better than this, if it was very very cheap then maybe...

    They're the same as the DiBoss. Someone has recently ordered a DiBoss 32" TV from Dabs so perhaps they could give you an idea of the quality of the TV (That's if it's been delivered).

    :rotfl: That's very funny. :rotfl:
