    I made a post a couple of days ago about purchasing a home cinema package from TINY and after reading a lot of posts and with having a conversation i had with dilshire i am pleased to say i went no where near it, but i still do want a plasma screen so i have been looking around has anyone bought or know anyone who has bought the LG RZ 42PX11, i have researched it on the internet and with WHAT HOME CINEMA and WHAT VIDEO AND WIDESCREEN TV and i must say it seems impressive both giving it a high score i think one was 80% and the other 5/5 but i want to know what people who have bought it actually think about it or if people know someone who has one, or anyone in the know who could look at this link and tell me what there opinions are, i was looking at the thompson in argos for £999 but again have been put off by what people are saying about it..this is the link to comets webpage where the LG is on offer at £1295 providing of course that i buy online which i hate doing :mad: ...ok thank you in advance for any help and advice

    some perform great some bad (the lg)....are you saying the LG is good or bad???? and you say buy i've had mine for ages, does that mean you have the LG yourself?? The only reason we want it is for football, we have a 32" phillips tube tv and sky is totally perfect picture wise, just not big enough, i have looked at a few plasmas now and no matter which one i decide to go look at someone, somewhere has written a bad review, which puts me off buying yet again :( so then i find myself back to square one people have suggested the panasonic pw6 or 7 but i can't seem to find one in my local shops i don't even know how much they are :(

    i must thank zebraman for his much appreciated and very helpful reply :)

    only 2,215 posts to read..............................as you are not a fan of buying online i suggest you take the John Lewis pricematch route if possible JL will pricematch a TV sold in a retail shop within a certain distance of there stores some stores are better than others but many forum mebers have used this to get Plasmas etc at internet prices, (some websites have shops you see) and get JL famous 5yr warranty and customer service,that way you pay £1300 Beales in bournemouth were doing the LG for £1300 give them a call, get JL to match it then collect from JL pay cash CC etc however you want to need a biggish car to get the box in so may be worth paying a bit more for delivery but go see the LG in action and see what you think before buying

    emma i gave you a link to a thread titled "help a beginner" in your firts thread, it has all the details for the panny PW range system, where in the UK are you as we may be able to point you to a local specialist who can help For big screen footie i still think a Projector would better, you can keep the Philips for normal TV and use the Projector for Films and Sports much bigger picture for less money only downside is you need a dark room ............ but £1300 will buy you a nice Projector (PJ) a tin of white paint and all the bits you need

    I was initially looking at the LG too...but reports were better for the PW6. Difficult to gauge from a demo in a shop, but my PW6 gives a better picture in my opinion than a LG. However (and it's a big however!)..the PW6 (and 7) are just a screen...but that didn't matter to me as I had cable TV, a Panasonic E55 DVD recorder (ie integral tuner) to pipe a pic to the screen as well as a home cinema set up for the sound. The PW6 is cheaper than the LG...I would have been paying extra for features I didn't really need ie a tuner and sound.

    I also moved up from a 32" - seems like a portable now :)
