I've been reading the threads on this site for hours and I've narrowed my choice of 50in plasma's to:

Samsung PS50Q7HD
or
LG 50PC1D

I need to get this right because its taken me forever to save the money and i would hate to have regrets.

I'm edging towards the Samsung but every time i think i've made my mind up i read something negative.
I suppose you get what you pay for...Nice set-up by the way.

The Samsung seems like a nicer set.

Saw the PHILIPS 50PF7521D/10 in Comet for £999 which looked a good deal too - sorry to make your life more difficult:)

In Very the same position myself....

I like the LG because of the additional HDMI connections but i like the style of the Samsung..

Let me know how you decide :lease:

I'm in the same position as you, looking for a 50" plasma. I'm going to go for the samsung myself, can I just point out (you may already know) the ps50q7hd is the outgoing model, being replaced by the ps50q97hd. Has better connectivity, ie 3 hdmi's against 1, and from the prices I've seen so far it's only about £100 more.

chinaman99 can i ask you a quick question about your Samsung...

I've got the 42" version and I have a query about the "source" selection

I had my dvd connected via EXT1 scart socket, but now i have decided to connect it via component instead, but now every time i want to view the DVD i have to press the "source" button three times to get to the component input (as it doenst auto-switch like scart does)

I'm not using the EXT1 or EXT2 scart sockets so I'd really like to disable those options so I can just press "source" once to get straight to the component input. I doubt this is possible but thought a fellow Samsung owner might know :)

Is there something in the service menu maybe?

Samsung looks like the best picture but the LG has the better connections...Hmmm.
Whatever i buy the Panasonic will (probably) drop in price and I'll be kicking myself but then again i could be waiting forever.

See my post above, the new samsung has better connectivity than the outgoing model.

Why not have a look at the new samsung 50" set PS50Q97HD. It's got a better PQ than both sets, and has 3 HDMI's .... :thumbsup:
