    Hi all.

    I am a plasma newbie,

    Trying to find out whats the best plasma that can be had for £2k, interested in the Samsung PS42P4AX resolution 1024 * 1024. Finding it very hard to find any reviews at all for it. Also I've read that the Samsung PS42V4SX which has a lesser resoltion (852 * 480) is Samsungs latest model. Which is the best to get as they seem around the same price?

    The reason I'm interested in Samsung is to combine it with there HD945 high definition DVI dvd player in order to try and get a good (720p or 1080i) high definition picture.

    Has anyone got the P4 with samsung hd dvd player (HD935) and if so whats the picture quality like when playing dvds?

    Any thoughts much appreciated. Or do you reckon I'm best forgetting about high definition dvd pictures and going for the Panasonic PW6 plasma instead with a JS box?

    Thanks guys
    :lease: help??

    Dave

    I got my samsung ps42v4 on Tuesday and im very impressed with it. A lot of people in hear rave about the panasonic which im sure is a good set also.

    I dont have mine running through anything special at the moment. My movies and videos are running through a s-video lead and its a great picture.

    Ive run a lot of DVD's through it also, from films to cartoons to pixar stuff im very happy with it.

    Well if you want to get any 720p 1080i picture forget about the PW7 852x480 only

    Think about the Panasonic TH42PHD6BX 1024x768 ideal for your needs,
    plasmascreens.co.uk have it for £1999+vat, never used them though.

    Beware new members quoted resolution of 1024*1024 is an ALIS panel more like a 1024*512 in real terms and contrast will suffer.... Search for Alis before you commit


    PS 852*480 is perfect for video images ie Sky DVD etc etc etc

    For info, that price is ex. VAT. Still not a bad price though.
