    Hi

    As title suggest, whats the difference?

    I was all set to buy a 32" Samsung LCD then I saw a 42" Samsung Digital Plasma and was blown away!!

    I want it for Sky, Normal TV and DVD (at the moment, games and PC may be a future requirement)

    Anyone got one? And what are your thoughts.

    The 42" Digital Plasma is the Samsung PS42S5SDX/XEU at Comet.

    Also while asking whats the difference between this and the Samsung 42" LCD PS42S5HX/XEU?? Apart from the obvious ones a plasma and ones an LCD.

    For my requirements which would you recommend.

    ai think it's the built in digital tuner, meaning you get all the freeview channels.

    Well I was looking at £900 then £1000 but after seeing the 42" compared with a 32" I like the thought of the 42" now! Its £1699 at Comet obviously it'll be cheaper elsewhere.

    Although I'm really unsure regarding Plasma over LCD!!
