    Afternoon,

    Just ordered my LG Plasma from 24/7 Electrical, and to say I am excited is a bit of an understatement.

    Excellent deal on it £1498 inc Sat Delivery. :thumbsup:

    Also got a set of Sony surround sounds and sub, and a Yamaha amp, just need to go about setting it all up and get seriously into this stuff...
    Ahhh another hobby to take up all the cash I have :D

    Just thought I would pop in and say hi.

    Just wanna say" its horses for courses" some people pay £150 for a hifi and others pay £1050 and both sets of people are very happy, but the trick is if you payed £150 dont go and listen to the guys £1050 unit or you might be disapointed !

    Same goes for Plasma's :cool:

    If you was happy with the unit when you demo'd it all should be fine, and have fun.

    When you've only got one screen in front of you, no doubt it will look good as I'm sure the LG will for you. Enjoy your purchase.

    But please oh please don't let that make you think that it is a better screen than what it is or better than the other options.

    I'll be sure to know my place, and not think that what I have bought is any better than what it is, and I will be sure that you will be there to slap me down if I have any idea's about rising above my station....

    Thanks very much for the welcome anyway. :thumbsup:

    I think everyone does sincerely wish you well and I'm sure you'll enjoy watching your new pride and joy. I have no axe to grind and actually have no experience of the LG screen and therefore no comment on the merits or otherwise of it in comparison to the Panasonic I bought. And if you should be anything less than happy there's always distance selling regulations...

    Regards,

    Simon

    That's not meant as a dig at the LG BTW :thumbsup:

    It's a good enough screen in it's own right, it's just that some do think it is seriously above it's station.

    As long as you're happy (sounds like you are) enjoy your purchase. :)

    Cheers folks.

    Yeah, I know it might not be the best but for the money and the fact that I have a Mortgage, Wife, Old Car I am restoring. It's just a case of priorities, and to get a half decent system together at a good price.

    If I was still with the folks or on my own back in my flat in Glasgow, then it would be best of the best everything, I can assure you.

    Not sure what you mean by 'seriously above it's station' Mr Star.

    Looks like a pretty good deal for the price to me.

    It's a fully useable plasma TV out of the box.... with very good connections.

    I saw it in John Lewis the other day and was very impressed.

    I'd obviously like to here opinions of people who have seen this in a proper demo or at home.... but it looked well worth considering :)

    I take it that we are talking about the PX11. If so, I was tinkering with one in John Lewis and was very impressed with it. Sharp picture, good colour/skintone and good features. The only drawback I noticed was that the screen didn't render black as well as I'd hoped.
    Still, at that price you really can't go wrong!
    Maybe you should make full use of the DVI socket and purchase the very good Samsung DVD player with DVI out for a truly digital picture. It would push your screen to the limits!

    Mmmmmmmmmm! Denon!
    But the features and reviews of the Samsung belie (spelling?) it's unbelievable price. If I was investing around £1500 to £2000 on a shiny new plasma (Oops, I have, heh, heh!), I'd certainly consider paying an extra £150 for a semi-quality DVD player that will output possibly the best commercial connection type available. Unfortunately, my Fujitsu VHA30 does not have the 'digital SCART' connection so I'll happily settle for progressive components instead!

    The only realy advantage of the Samsung is DVD audio / SACD playback - and to be honest, if you really want those, you should be spending more money. You are better off spending more money and getting better CD playback than worrying about DVD-A / SACD anyway.

    The Denon is only just a little bit more expensive than the Samsung.
