My sister is looking at getting an LCD TV. However they are looking at the Samsung LE32R41BD.

I have always heard and looked at Sharp for LCD. The price they are looking at from Comet for the samsung they can get the Sharp LC37P50E. I have also seen the Panasonic LCD TVs on Pricerunner.co.uk.


Please could someone help me with which one you would go for and which models are the best? She is looking around the 1100 pounds mark.

Also they LCD needs to be HDTV ready

Many Thnks

If it needs to be HD Ready, ie, you intend to be watching HD in some form or another over the next few years then she can rule out the Sharp P50. Personally I would go for the Panasonic over the Samsung models.

Which model would people go for if they had 1100. The Toshiba...Is sky, for instance, a great picture? If removing the sharp should I get my sister to look at the Panasonic then?

I gues they are telling you..... Go look at the sets for yourself, never spend £1100 just cos someone else has bought a set. See what they look like then decide from this shortlist.

Hi, this is my first post, so here goes.

I have been looking for the last month or so my self for a decent 32" lcd, and after reading hundreds of reviews i decided to go for the Panasonic TX32LXD52.

I dearched the net and found one for £1094, although I was kind of keen to get a long warranty (well why not), so I got in touch with John Lewis and they agreed to price match (as the one I found on the net was actually a shop aswell), so I'm picking it up on Wednesday. The advanatge of buying from John Lewis is that they give you a five year warranty on all their tv's, so that is worth £300+ on it's own.

From all the reviews I've read, the panasonic comes out on top in most. I was undecided about the Panasonic 32LXD500 as a slightly more expensive option, however I didnt need all the extra features, and everyone I spoke to (about 10 stores, and 2 panasonic dealers) confirmed that the screen is exactly the same on both models, it's mainly just the sound that is better on the 500 model.

Hope this info helps. :)

Hi mate,

I just wanted to know what shop did John Lewis price match with? For £1094 plus there 5 year warranty that’s great.

Hi

I bought it from John Lewis in Milton Keynes (Although I live in Leicester, I work in MK).

They price matched with a company called Digico who are based in Coventry, however I also had a back up just in case, and that was H Preston Media (www.videokit.co.uk) who are based in Malvern (they quoted £1100).

The main thing that they are concerned about is that it is from an actual shop, and not just a website. I was well chuffed!!!

If you're buying in store pay the money and get the Panni - if you buy online save nearly £300 to get them a decent DVD player and get the Samsung.
