Time to replace my old trusted Panny Plasma

I need some advice.

I'm an expat living in Czech Republic

I'm looking to replace my 6 year old 42" Panasonic Plasma that has served me so well.

Looking to spend up to £1k and 50" minimum.

Main usage is watching sport in HD but also still watch a lot of SD.

3D not so important. A sat tuner would be useful.

I always thought I would only ever go for plasma but now not so sure.

Would want to stick to Panasonic / Sony / Samsung

I can get a Panny P50GT60E for £1k but was also thinking of seeing what the new Panny AS650 was like.

I also read good reviews of the Sony W829 but unfortunately the model is not released over here.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

If your interested in the sony have a look if it is a different model number in the Czech Republic. There is the kdl50w805, the new panny's look interesting although I've not seen much feedback on them. I did find this link however I think it's in Slovakia, Google translate is not always the best ;)

I spent all day yesterday visiting many stores and at the end of the day all I had was a headache!!

The shop selling the penny P50GT60 was a waste of time. They had the last one but it was a returned unit with a big scratch in the corner. No shop thought they would get any more

I spent a long time in the Sony shop playing with the w805b (the sales guy was great and seemed to really know his stuff).

I also went to the specialist Samsung store and there was a UE48H6640 that, to be honest, blew me away. I was so close to buying it but I wanted to read some reviews first. Problem is I cannot find anything on the web.

Does anyone here have any experience with the H6600 series?

I'm going to lie down now!!!

Just an update. After further deliberation, I decided to go for the Sony W805B.

Picked it up yesterday. So far, I'm very impressed but will have a proper play with the settings today.

Great, would be good if you can post some feedback once you've had your play on the w7/w8 thread

It will help any of our European cousins who occasionally view the thread, only if you get time though mate. Enjoy your new tv :)
