    sorry if this is in the wrong section wasnt sure whether to post her on in the lcd section

    had a phillips 36"pixelplus II for about2 years and have been very happy with the set, no ones crt ive seen comes anywhere near it, but like everyone else i need to move to hd

    due to my friend working in sony i can get discount on the w series at the mo but not the kd-55 so they about £1100 each. had my heart set on the lcd but on reading about the kd-55 im not so sure now. are the picture the same quality side by side etc, with hd or sd

    if u had the cash tommorow wat would most people buy,

    lcd's look nice great performance long lifespan etc

    kd-55, giant screen, good reviews on site, only worry is all this talk of green blobs and replacement lamps (ive looked on the net and one is £400:thumbsdow ) i also read somewher i wont be able to hook this up to my 5.1 set up is this correct

    cheers for any views, as u all know ur next tv set is a big deal:thumbsup:

    55" is too small to get the best out of HD, but obviously that means 40" is just ridiculous. :)

    If you get a set that has a green blob problem you can get it replaced. Green blob = defective TV.

    If you shop around you can get one for about £200. But in any case the lamp lifetime is 8000 hours: if you watch TV for 4 hours a day then one lamp will last you five and a half years.

    I suppose that depends on how you're proposing to connect it, but there is no way in which it is less easy to connect that TV to a 5.1 system than it would be with any other TV that I know of.
