Quite Confused VT20 or ????


Standard Member

I am confused and really want a new tv. I have seen the Panny 50VT20, Loewe and now the Samsung series 9 lcd sets. I have only seen the sets with SD,HD and bluray. I think I prefer a plasma but my wife and children all like the lcd picture. I would have bought the panny ages ago if I had not been reading the posts here!

What would be the best option with the least amount of issues going forwards, if we were to go LCD I would not be able to stretch to a 46 seties 9, so maybe a 7 or 8? Or is there a better option, not the £££ Loewe!

My boys watch some footie and I watch BBall on ESPN. We are not too bothered about 3D, just want the best picture going, either a 46" or 50". :confused:

Thanks in advance

Panasonic V20 is the Vt20 -3D and fast phosphors for a lot less money.
The LG PK990 and PX990(3D) are very good sets, also the new Samsung plasma just reviewed here sounds good.

All are plasma, plasma has better motion handling so will be better for footy, I also prefer plasma for films and gaming.

If you want to convince the Mrs and kids take them to a specialist dealer rather than Currys etc, the lighting in those big stores wash plasma out making LCDs look oooh so bright colourful but a home environment is very different. These stores often set them up wrong with bad feeds.

RS and Sound and vision both have demo rooms setup like a home environment, some independant dealers also have theses rooms. Take your family along sit in the demo room on a nice comfy sofa and take a look at the footy and your favorite films.

As you may be aware some VT owners have had issues with footy rugby etc, If I was you I'd prob consider the PK990 its a greate set thats tempting me from my V20 still:rolleyes:

Best of luck:smashin:

Thanks Scooby,

We did go to a specialist, they only had freeviewHD and bluray available, sadly no sport on when we went. Was going to try and find a couple of clips on the net to download and take on my portable hd, then play them on the tv. Don't want to get the panny home and find out we can all see the issues mentioned here.
