Hi. I see there is the 50 inch Philips 7334 for a bargain at 449 or the 8204 for 499.

however can you tell me what is the difference between these two TVs? Is the 8204 much better?

also would you recommend any of these two TVs. Local dimming appears to be included so should give good contrast and blacks.

any thoughts to help me decide? Or should I stick with a 43inch Samsung 7400 for a similar price?

thanks

Hi Paul,
I was in the same position deciding which one to go for. After some research I decided to go for the 8204 @ £499 in Curry`s.

Any thoughts on the TV? and what made you go for the 8204 in the end?

Thanks
Hi Paul,
I was looking for a review online but there was none on the 8204 there was a few on 7334 so I finally went to Phillips website and did a comparison the 8204 is has a slightly better spec.

What size screen was that? I was thinking of a 50" 7334 Philips as a cheap 2nd TV.

I've done so much tv research this last week my head is spinning, but i've settled on definitely wanting Ambilight, and swaying towards VA, after seeing some terrible reviews of IPS on Amazon, particularly the glow and washout, and I do tend to watch tv in a dark room.

Two contenders are 50pus8204 + 55pus8204

50 is definitely VA
55 i'll happily pay the £100 more for at £599, but i've a sneaking suspicion its IPA, but can't confirm :(

Do these 8 series have the better sound too VS 7 series?
I have read they should have more bugs ironed out which may have effected 7 and 6 series.

Heres my short list and thought process so far

*8204 about to buy, ambilight, VA panel + 1900 PPI
*Any attempt to move up to 55" thwarted with IPS panels
*Consider saving £100 on other VA 50" but get lower PPI and 6 or 7 series with potential poor software/slower processors?
*Keep ending up back with the 8204!


8204 £499

7334 £449

6814 £399

6754 £399

I think you should stick with the 8204, I just saw a deal at Cosco from hot deal 70pus7304 for £790 if you are Cosco member that is tempting
