    Hi,

    I have a mate who wants to get a cheap 42inch plasma. He is not interested in trawling through reviews etc... Just wants to go and buy one.

    His budget is about £1250 and he has said he was thinking of gettting the LGRZ 42PX11 from Comet for £1295.00.

    Now I told him to wait and save a bit more but he is impatient. Would he be better off with the Panasonic TH-42PA50B-PED for £1274.01 from Digital Direct? or is there another budget plasma that would be worth looking at?

    His main uses are DVD, PS2 and Freeview.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I would suggest you tell your mate not to be so lazy! :)......get out there and look....or at least join here himself and do some research! He might also want to consider whether he is worried about Hi Def or not.

    :) I agree totally, I am about to purchase a 37" PV500 myself after reading these forums for about 6 months, but he is more of a "I want a plasma, I'm going down the shop to buy one!" kinda guy.

    I would just like to see him spend his money fairly wisely.

    He is not interested in Hi Def, by the way.

    I'm a panel plus components kinda guy :) so would always suggest the Panny PWD7 whihc is definitely budget these days but excellent none the less. Richer have them for £999 now and MAW is selling them through the forums and Av Sales always have good deals.
