    Hi Everyone,

    First post here, been looking around for a new television, was looking at rear projection initially but then I found a plasma that may fit into my budget and what I require in a screen...

    I'm in Australia and the Panel is being sold under the TCL brand it can be viewed here, TCL Panel - Model PDP4226 I dont think TCL is sold in the UK but from what I can tell TCL bought Thomson and the panels are now the same, Does anyone know if this is correct?

    The one thing I am mainly concerned about is the life expectancy, we probably watch 4-5 hours of tv a day at the moment and I would like to think 10 years isnt too much to ask...

    My only other concern is the price, i.e why is it cheaper than anything else, the salesman told me its because TCL are trying to break into the market here so need to be cheap...

    TCL are the largest manufacter in china apparently...

    Any help would be appreciated, don't want to buy a lemon...

    Cheers
    Callum

    I'm from Australia and i'm currently using one of the TCL ED 106cm plasma's and I can tell you that the picture and build quality are both absoultely fantastic through my 1080i upscaleing DVD player.

    The set uses the Fraoudja dcdi truelife descaler chipset.

    My model number is different to yours though.

    Cal,

    The model of my TCL plasma is PDP42U3H. The unit is finished in a metallic white and it looks fantastic - The picture quality is stunning.

    Totally reccomeded - I just wish I knew how to access the service menu.
