    Hi,

    This site has been recommended to me by a friend as I am looking to purchase a plasma TV soon and have been looking at the above models.

    I was just wondering if anybody had any opinions as to which model is the best option ?

    Are there any better options available for less than £1300 ? Needs to have a TV Tuner/Inputs/Speakers included.

    Thanks for any help with this.

    Cheers,

    Dai

    Daipac,

    I have the LG RZ42PX11 its fab, it's got tons of inputs, speakers aren't bad, the picture in picture is pretty cool too. Great for playing xbox and watching TV at the same time.

    Not seen the Samsung PS42V4SX but i would I'd highly recommend the LG. :thumbsup:

    Scott

    Thanks for your reply Scott.

    My friend also has the LG and is very happy with it. Good to hear someone else who has good things to say about it.

    Are there any other options available or due in the near future that may be better ?

    I have to agree the LG is an absolute bargain! Got mine for £1299 from Crampton and Moore in Sheffield. I don't know how they can sell em at that price, you'd expect it to be crap but honestly I'm amazed by the picture. Just try and make sure you got a current one with the latest firmware (5.14).

    Cheers,
    Andy.

    :lesson: DO NOT buy the samsung. I bought one and sold it for half price three weeks later. The LG seems to be popular with the guys who own one. Don't think you'd find such a fan base for the S-word. You have been warned.

    MAKE SURE you get the correct version of LG. You need to find out that it's 5.13 or 5.14 firmware BEFORE you accept it. Else you could end up with samsung's ugly twin sister. :eek: Just to add, I don't own an LG.
