    guys,

    i want to be making my purchase very soon since we've just moved into our first house and need a telly...

    after reading forums etc the TX26LXD500 looks like a really mint tv, but the cost is sky high compared to similar sets... basically what i'm saying is i dont mind spending £1250 if its worth it...

    i would definately like the Freeview built in and also i'm a console nut so will be getting (probably knowing me) both the PS3 and XBox360 so the HD would be nice.

    so, is it worth the extra dollars? if so why?

    mucho gracias people :)

    yeah i know but the room that its going in is not particlarly big and 32" would be overpowering...

    i'm just curous why it is so much more? i know people have mentioned about it being the best LCD acording to the What TV review or whatever but does it really warrant the $$$ difference?

    WRONG !!!

    They are in fact advertsing the LXD50 (non HDMI model) which you can get for around £850 from web retailers.

    maybe i'm phrasing the questions wrong...

    i want HD ready and i also want freeview... there are a few tellys that have both but the panny 500 seems to be a lot more expensive... is it worth the extra over tv's such as the samsung LE26R51BD (which also has both) for example?

    For me there is no other LCD. The TX26LXD500 is my next purchase when online e-tailers get them in. Been told by Panny that they will be available at the end of this month/beginning of August. ;)

    Why not look for the 26 inch jvc, a lot cheaper and hd ready too, besides that they are practically brothers, both are owned by the same company...

    Unbeatable have stock

    http://www.unbeatable.co.uk/CatalogueItem_28073.html

    the thing is though, this set is over twice the price of the Samsung 26". IMO the features just do not justify an extra £600+

    Good time to get the cardboard cutout up on the wall for a feel of the screen size. It's worth noting that the speaker arrangement has a big impact on the LCD footprint (Side mounted or slung underneath)
