Trying to decide between these 3...

Have been flicking between each of them at the following prices:

LG PX990 -- £950 (inc 5yrs warranty)

Samsung PS50C680 [Bluray, 2 glasses, shrek] -- £775 (1yr warranty, after quidco, credit c cashback)

Samsung PS50C7000 [Bluray, 2 glasses, shrek] -- £1150 (1yr warranty, after quidco) .............can't see any cheaper anywhere?

Opinions please!

Thank you! :)

read post 110, particularly the update.
reviews on this unit (the US version of the ps50c7000) are all based on the original firmware not the updated one.
Also, the black level and contrast measurements were very significantly improved. Using the same Milori Trichromat meter as always with plasmas and covering the screen with a black blanket to block any ambient light, black level read between 0.006 and 0.007 fL

I believe thats the darkest (or very close to) of any set at any price currently available.

S2 - 0.009 fL
G25 - 0.0083 fL
PK550 - 0.0132 fL
PK750 - 0.026 fL

Does that help?

ps- £1999-
