V20 alternatives?


Active Member
Hi guys,
I recently bought a 42V20 from John Lewis and was really happy with it......but the dreaded buzz started.
So i'm looking to replace it with another model/make. I am considering the G30 but JL dont have this model so i'll have to ask for a refund from them and get it elsewhere.
What other 42" plasmas do people recommend for SD/HD and gaming? around the £700 bracket

Cant think of another 42" plasma at the moment, I will say though that from what I've read and seen the G30 isn't as good as the V20, I'm looking to replace my faulty V20 with a VT30 or GT30. Then I paid 1200 for my set, the G30s prob the best 42" you'll get for 700. Its not that the G30s a bad set its bound to be better in some ways as its the new model, but it doesn't have freesat and more important to me, the black level isn't as good.
