    I'm looking for a good quality vfm 42" plasma for boys room.
    Primarily for Sky ( football ) and PS2. Don't want to spend
    a fortune as I already have a good quality plasma.
    Looking at new LG RZ-42PX11 , WHC mag says great,
    What Video says naff ! Any suggestions welcome. :confused:

    I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but when 'What Video' reviewed the LG the plasma was on v.3 firmware. If you read the following thread you'll notice there is indeed a massive difference between the versions... they're now on 5.14 I think.

    Personally, I think it's a great plasma! :)

    For 2nd plasma not bad. I think the RGB scart is still a bit naff judging on feedback, same device by component and RGB seems to be a lot better by component. Get your PS2 on component, is the sky RF or do you have a sky box there? S-video appears to be hassle free too, if you have that it might be a way round scart problem if it shows itself.

    I've watched lots of football on my PX11 and I've been suprised how good it looks, I've seen football on a Philips plasma and it looked very blocky ( the grass that is ). The PX11 is a very good TV if you are on a budget like me.

    i must admit i was VERY VERY disappointed at the pic quality when it arrived about 2.5 weeks ago, was ready to send it back but after reading the VERY LONG px11 thread I deceided to give it the 28 days before I would tell JL to shove it. The main thrust was to change some of the default settings page 53 of the long thread and let it "Run In" from 100 - 200 hours , mines only done about 70, but literally the pic is at least 5 times better than when I first switched it on
    it is very good and Im still using a cruddy scart cable.

    Go on you WONT be disappointed

    Pete :thumbsup:

    i completely agree with pete when i first got the panel i was so gutted then i used my xbox and swore id never play it again, but then played with settings a lil and let it run in and its getting better, this panel defo needs running in they should do it at the factory lol, and the 1 rgb scart is a bit poor but theres plenty of other connections inc 2 s videos.

    maw do u think s video would be better for me to connect sky+ i currently have dvd goin thru 1 s video

    Dunno mate, worth trying if you've got a leasd to hand. All comments seem to say RGB scart is not as good as it could be on this panel, and s-video is certainly better than most folks give it credit for on almost any setup.
