Which LG to buy?

Hi,

Been looking recently at buying a new flat screen TV, LED or LCD.
Searched intensively on the internet and eventually found what I thought was a bargain at Curry's, an LG 47LD450.
However, for my lounge it's really too big and I have dropped down now to a 42".

Having checked some different models I notice some have DIVX option, which is useful for me for my movie downloads.

I am considering the following:
LG42LE5900
LG42LD690
LG42LE5300
LG42LD490

Prices seem to be from around £429 upwards, do not really want to spend more than £600 though that's what the 5900 is coming in at, with so many to choose from it's hard deciding, I am also open to the 42LD450, however that doesn't have DIVX, a bargain though at £399.

Any opinions welcome. :)

Just added the LG 42LD790 to the list having checked another thread on this forum, looks good for £599 but.....that's 6 now I have to choose from, what do you guys think?

ok I think have it narrowed down to:

LG 42LE5900
LG 42LD790

I have seen the LD790 around £100 cheaper.

I mainly want a new TV for movies, sport though having DIVX option is something I want too.

Any advice, or other options please?

Nice one, I think I need to see all the TVs I am interested in a store, just finding somewhere near me that has them all in.

If you don't mind me asking, where have you guys been looking at/buying the 42LD790 from, and at what price?

I can't seem to find many places selling them.

Thanks.

If you google on the model name there are a couple of stores that appear to have it in, but I would want to see it too personally.
