hello everybody and just a premature thank you for any advice, in advance.. I am due to move into a new house in a couple of weeks and have been given the go ahead (from her in doors) to grab myself a new tv...yipee!! I've decided to budget between £1600 and £2000 but no more. I've done a little research but not much hence the thread. initially i like the look of the LG42PX5D seen in currys at £1799. Alongside this there was an LCD Tv a PHILLIPS 42PF5421 at £1499. I'm aware there's lots of pro's and cons over LCD and plasma and that the ultimate choice is just pesonal preference but please can u confirm this. I'm also looking for a surround sound and hoping to incorporate this into my budget. Whilst in currys i really liked the look of the LG LHT550TB home cinema system.. i really like the tall,thin design of the speakers. Priced at £229 After looking at many threads on here it appears that in my price range the panasonics seem to be the overall best performers e.g px60 or 600. just another note but i like the idea of a black surround on the tv. So... to conclude (thank christ i hear you say) would i be sensible to get the panasonix thpx60 with the LG home cinema system or could you advise on a better combination considering what i'm looking for. thank you anyone for any help its much appreciated.
