    Hello, I'm from Girona in Catalonia. I need some opinions to decide to buy Toshiba 52WM48, Loewe Articos 55, or Sagem 56H-HD.

    I'm like Toshiba in first moment, but a lot of opinions are not good...

    Another problem is the connection with PC via DVI, in toshiba is possible???

    Thanks!!!!!

    I bought a Tosh 52" but if I were buying now I'd buy the Sagem 56". Loewe stuff always strikes me as being similar to Bang & Olufsen - nice kit, very pretty, but stupidly overpriced.

    The Tosh doesn't have DVI in. It has a VGA socket and an HDMI socket, but DVI to HDMI adaptors are cheap and easily available. The Sagem doesn't have an HDMI but it does have an HDCP enabled DVI, so good enough.

    Regards

    What about hot new HD4 models from Thomson: 61DLW616 or 50DLW616.
    They are priced very competitive.
    UK version is ...617.

    I have the sagem Hd-D56 and its a very good set in terms of picture quality connecivity and price. HD ready via DVI and a good looking set in its own right. For me its close to perfect, looking forward to viewing HD!! Hope this helps.

    Mark sorry mate but I disagree, although I know where you coming from B&O is ***** and Lowe produce high end excellant quality gear. B&O is just pure styling and high prices. IMHO Lowe walks all over B&O.

    I would go for the Sagem 56 or Samsung 50' if your budget can stretch to a Optoma RD65 then grab one of these.
    :D

    Both. The Sagem wasn't available when I bought the Tosh. I think the Sagem looks to be better all round, though the Tosh is quite a bit cheaper. The Tosh also suffers from motion blurring on poor quality feeds, and isn't entirely free of it even with the best of conventional feeds. I suspect it will be a lot better with purely hidef feeds. I certainly get very good images from it with a Lumagen video processor that's as near to hidef as we get at the moment.

    Regards

    Oh I agree that Lowe make excellent stuff. It's just deliberately overpriced to appeal to snobs who know no better. And they certainly end up with very good gear, even if they could have bought just as well for two thirds the money elsewhere.

    Loewe is nice but as many have mentioned - overpriced - somehow though it always seems to be cheap if you're in the Netherlands - dunno why exactly.

    I would buy Lowe gear. :smashin: I know they are not cheap but they do offer very high quality. Lowe gear is always rated very highly something that B&O never really achive.

    I personally hate B&O. Rubbish over priced stylisd tat. [​IMG]

    I agree with Razor. My friend has the Loewe DLP and it amazes me every time I see it. Superb picture, very good viewing angle and fantastic looking. :thumbsup:

    jgr11,

    I know how you feel. I myself am trying to decide between the Samsung 507LHX and Sagem D56B. At the moment, I'm favouring the Samsung for looks, price and HDMI connection (although I'm not really sure what the benefit is of having a HDMI instead of DVI connection). However, the Sagem has one advantage - the screen is 6 inches bigger.

    I've come to the conclusion you can never have 'too big'. And that's something me an' Razor can agree on! :)

    I view a 103" projector screen from 3m and have no problem at all. Apart from the Tosh 52" looks a bit too small when I raise the screen out of the way and go back to ordinary TV again.

    Regards

    Mark
