I have about £550 to spend on my first flat screen. I will have Sky HD and Blue Ray plus XBOX to use on it. I also like sports and have read about some TVs not so good with fast moving sports images. I'm thinking 37-42 inch screen. Anyone any suggestions?

Whats your viewing distance?
Room conditions bright/dim?
Do you want a 3Dtv?

When I was looking at tvs about a year ago, I asked here and on other forums for advice. I also looked at tvs in the shops (waste of time) and read all the online reviews.

To my eyes the LCD/LED tvs looked brighter, more colourful and more detailed than any of the plasmas, so I bought one - Big mistake ! I found the judder and motion blur really annoying.
In the end I bought an LG 50PK590 plasma and a year later I still love my tv. If I had a bright room, i'd still get the plasma and some curtains, blinds or whatever to make it darker. If I couldn't make the room darker, i'd still get a plasma because I can't stand LCD...

My girlfriends sister just bought one of these: Click

I've only seen cartoons on it, but from what i've seen it looks great.

Oh, and when I was asking about plasma tvs the large majority were saying "get a Panasonic" After loads of google searching I found a couple of guys that had moved from pany to the LG PK590, and they prefered the LG.

Thanks for your reply.
Viewing distance about 9ft, the sun doesn't shine on the windows of the room, I have no plans to get Sky 3D or a 3D DVD player. I'm not a big fan of 3D at the cinema and haven't seen anything on Sky 3D.

I would be concerned about judder and motion blur. I've seen a few football matches when in Currys and I've seen the problem with motion blur. There aren't many choices of plasma at 40-42 inch but maybe thats a good thing, make it easier to choose. What numbers should I be looking for in a plasma screen, 600mhz seems good.

I'd probably go for Vicksters choice to be honest. That 5 year guarantee would be nice (assuming it's worth the paper it's written on) and it's full HD - Not sure how much difference that makes in reality though.

JL warranty is pretty good - do a search for positive outcomes

My parents had their LCD fixed at 3 years old, no hassles
