hi upgradeing my 28inch matsui crt. which i paid 300 quid for 6 years ago.


have around 700- 900 to spend .
was thinking of getting a plasma or lcd

what is the toshiba lcd 32wlt66 like. i am on a budget must tv must be to my needs, and i do not want motion sickness.

must be good to watch football on i watch a lot mostly on carttons the other times
will be getting a ps3 at the end of the year pre ordered already.

will be getting sky hd too in a month have sky plus at the moment.

update really like the toshiba lcd but been told ON LCD FORUM ITS NO GOOD FOR FOOTBALL.
so what do u guys reckon would like no bigger than 42inch due to the cost would spend 1500 max but means i would have to use cc to pay.:confused:

please advice

My Panasonic PWD7 is great for football. I would have thought the latest (HD) models would be as well - PHD8/9?

These are panels though, not tv's. I do not know about other plasma's.

I wouldn't bother with LCD, and you do not want to sit closer than 7 feet from a 42" panel.

For a large screen (over 32") and for football I would go plasma. If you have sounds (you can use your hifi) the Panasonic panels are great value. They do not have tuners/speakers though.

If you want HD the PHD8 should be well within your budget, try a search though because I seem to remember reading that the PWD7 (£900) displays HD well.......

A 42" will be okay from 5 feet for a kid (mine watch up close sometimes), but the optimum would be over 7-8 feet at least.

To get anything half decent on the plasma front you will need to up your budget to around £1200 - £1500. Then you need to decide whether you need to buy a plasma tv with biult in tuner and speakers or whether a panel will do as you alreay have sky/freeview box and a av amp or hifi for sound. Once you have made that decision ppl can suggest the models you need to consider/demo. It doesnt pay to rush into a purchase and then regret it (speaking from experience here btw :rolleyes: ). Give the guys here more info to go on and they may be more inclined to help :)

If you are looking for plasma, I would suggest the panasonic px60 or the hitachi 7200. both HD ready and reasonably priced.Do a forum search on both models for more info.
