if you want the best you will have to pay a high premium, look at the pioneer plasma range, or the loewe lcd/plasma range.....but they are expensive

Personally I would go LCD over Plasma. Plasma is still young and it is still unknown as to exactly how long they will last. LCD technology has been around a lot longer all be it in the smaller form.

However the picture on both technolgies is amazing. The Panasonic Plasma is nice I have two friends who have them. I think these two have the Samsung screens - most manfacturers do have them, even the dell laptops do. Samsung's quality is very good and should not shy anyone away from a purchase.

Make sure you go HD which is going to make your 42" search for an LCD harder - and more costly around £2000 for a known good make. You can find bargain Plasmas now for £699!

Your call but I can recommend HiSpek - I purchase quite a bit from them. (for the web url add www. and .com) They normally price match too but shop around as they have been beaten before.

Sorry guys but a lot of what has been posted is just plain wrong. I install LCD and plasma every day. What have I got? A Pioneer PDP436XDE.

At sizes over 32" a good plasma wins hands down. Pioneer and Panasonic make the best at the moment, I chose Pioneer just because I prefer the styling and the seperate media box.

At 32" LCD performs well. Panasonics are my favorite although Sharp, Philips, Samsung and Toshiba make good sets also.

If you think your 40" Sony Bravia has a good picture then you need to come and watch the footie round my house.

i agree the Pioneer and Panasonic lead the way...Have a Panasonic TH37PV500 myself. Excellent TV wanted the 42" but out of stock several places I tried. Some new models out now so the PV500 range are discounted if you can find one.

Just check out any of the recent mags What Plasma, Home Cinema etc

i've also got the 37" panasonic plasma, excellent tv, and i have a 27" video7 lcd.
All tv's are coming down in price so could be a good time to go flatscreen.:Clap:
