    :)
    Hello guys, im new here and really need some advice from experts.
    Im thinking buying a LCD panel and my use will be mostly for watching movies from my computer(for gaming i have my dell 24inch) and maybe use freeview or sky.
    So, after read lot of posts here i couldn't finish with any substantial conclusion, which 42 inch model should i purchase? I was wondering about plasma tv, but is a big discussion which one is better, and since i will use pc output, ive choose lcd.
    please, any help will be great, and prices are welcome as well of course.
    i have in mind these 2 panels:
    Toshiba Regza 42X3030D and Sharp LC42XD1EA.
    many thanks since now and sorry for my English.
    Regards for all.

    Why you say this?
    40D3500-around 900£-1.000£
    40V3000-around 1.000£-1.100£
    40W3000-around 1.400£-1.500£
    40X3000-around 1.600£-1.700£
    40X3500-around 1.700£-1.800£

    The most interesting are D3500 and V3000 because have very good specs!!The top range X3000 also are the best!!!

    If you could spend 900£ you could take the 40D3500.Also is going to be realesed the new 40T3500 which will cost at your budget,but it dont has many features as the others.Maybe it worth a look but I dont believe.....For around 840£ the best solution is Samsung LE-40M87!!!!

    If you were willing to lose a couple of inches, you could take a look at the samsung M87 (40 inch).
