    Afternoon all.

    I eventually talked the good lady wife into getting a Plasma last week. Great I though, with in a week I could be sitting pretty in front of a new screen. But then I started to look into the world of Plasma, and my god, It's not as easy as I thought.

    I (like most people) have a limited budget of about €1800 (£1250) but would like the get as much quality for my money.

    I am not fused on HDTV, as it will not be in Ireland for some time. And when it does get here in 2010, I'll probably be looking for a new TV any way.

    I wanted to know if any one has, or knows if the Samsung Model ps42v6 is good. Or is it a no go.

    I can get one over here for around my budget.

    Thanks in advance

    Ireland is getting sky HD same time as England I believe, i.e. first half of next year. Can't help on the screen I'm afraid. Are you committed to a 42"? Only reason I ask is because the cheaper 42" screens use older generation panels which are more affected by digital artefacts (I'm talking mainly about banding/solarisation). Buying a smaller screen may get you a newer generation of panel and better quality.

    Just a thought to consider before you take the plunge. You are right - it's not as easy as it first seems :rolleyes:

    Thanks acrmorris,

    From my neck of the wood I see. I used to live in Tunbridge Wells, untill a couple of years ago.

    Any way, thanks for the advice. I'm calling into an electrical shop on the way home to have another look. They guys in the shop must think I'm weird, keep coming in, looking at screens and then leaving again!!! :rotfl:

    And also not as hard as we all might like to think.

    If you buy the right panel/TV you will doubtless be over the moon.

    Can't say for myself but have seen variable feedback on this forum regarding Samsung. Enough to make me avoid it when I was looking a few months back.

    At your budget you need to decide if you want a TV or a panel. You could get something like a Panasonic PWD8 at your budget, however that would not be all you would need to have to make it work. You would need a Tuner (Set top box, sky or similar) and and AV Receiver with speakers.

    You could go for something like the Panasonic 42PE50 which might be had on that budget as well, that would give you a very nice TV which I would probably tick your box of being quality for money.

    I'm in Dublin.
    I was raised in T wells, then met an Irish lass, and moved over here.

    We got engaged near Galway though. An amazing place

    Mind you, every one knows some one over here. Its the smallest country I've ever been too. But great fun at the same time.

    I don't trust the V series! Isn't that Samsungs cheapest model?
