    Just to satisfy my curiousity, where can the cheapest 42" to be found? :thumbsup:

    ...and, sub question, is there any REAL disadvantage to buying cheap? :rolleyes:

    Vision plasma is currently the cheapest around at about £1900, Hyundai do a cheap plasma TV at about £2000.

    There is one pretty big disadvantage - they're ****e.

    Seriously though the picture is noisy, processing artefacts all over the screen, they are a pain to use and hav minimal adjustments to try and get something good out of them. It's the kind of thing that someone will come over your house and say "you paid 2 grand for that?". They're fine for pubs and clubs etc but the way we watch TV inour homes means we will pick the picture apart over time and there are so many things to get annoyed with with cheap plasmas. The ony half decent cheap one (well £2300 ish with speakers, tuner and mount) i've seen is the latest Samsung TV (Faroudja DCDi, Pixelworks scaling, Samsung's new 3000:1 glass) but haven't had a chance to properley test one out yet...

    You can get a techwood for £1500 odd, again artefacts and blurring everywhere. Better to save a bit more dosh, as just over £2100 can get you a very nice Panasonic PW6 :)
