    Same thing I believe. Listed both ways round on seperate websites.

    Deal moved slightly now.

    LG £1100 + £35 delivery + £239 5yr Warranty (Total £1374)
    Samsung £1334 delivered with 5 yr warranty.

    I just noticed, the LG doesn't seem to have SCART RGB at all. That is really disappointing. Am I wrong??? Thanks

    Does anyone know the VESA Mount fitting for this LG? I think I found out that it has only one SCART RGB. Still, better than none and the TV seems really hi-spec for that price.

    Thanks Stainway. Well done for finding that out. The reason I ask is, I have a VESA 200/100/50 already wall mounted. I had the Acer 32" LCD on it but sent it back because it was faulty. If it DEFINATELY won't fit this mount then I will have no choice but to rip it down and get another.

    Also, for anyone who is interested I found THIS for £1300

    Free Delivery as well! :) But no finance :(

    I think you will need bigger one :confused:
    At least the LG is very light for a plasma-about 25 kg. thanks to the film filter

    Plasmas are all proprietary mounts, the vesa one is a non starter. I agree with Stainway that the LG wins hands down over Samsung, though it's a bit like saying the yanks would beat the Russians at cricket. Nonetheless, it's value for money at that price. Be aware LG UK are not the sharpest knives in the drawer if you get any problems, it's all part of the cost equation I suppose. And yes, LG have the most extraordinary array of connection and signal acceptance, I have wondered if you stick your finger in one of the holes it might display your heartbeat!
