    Default Which TV Would You Opt For?

    Well the warranty Co. has written off my TV, and are giving me a replacement.

    It has to be supplied via Comet, & cannot cost anymore than £1499.99

    They offered me a Sony 46' Bravia LCD, this one
    http://www.comet.co.uk/cometbrowse/p....do?sku=432393

    But I quite like the look of the Samsung 46', this one
    http://www.comet.co.uk/cometbrowse/p....do?sku=389617

    So what do you reckon, what would you have?

    If you can find something else you think is better, it has to be from comet, max £1499 etc etc then any suggestions taken.

    If I find something else I want then I can have it, but obvioulsy I want the best spec set I can get.

    TV will be for general use, everyday stuff and Xbox 360 action.....!!

    To be honest i'd stay away from both. My mate sold and fitted these for 3/4 years and said the 4 to buy are Panasonic, Sharp, Philips and pioneer. I went for a Philips 42" lcd hd 1366p and i'm glad i picked it.

    Mushy is right about the size thing.

    I have 2 full HD (1920-1080) 100mhz Sony 46" LCD TV's & am very happy with them. Both are about 4 meters away from where we sit & watch so the pics are awesome. However, if you are looking at buying a 46" LCD & will be watching it from less than 3 meters away you are better off getting a Plasma or a 32" or 40" LCD. That is just how LCD works. The closer you are the worse the picture looks, even in full HD tv because of the pixelation. To be future proofed you need a full HD TV.

    The well known rules for LCD & Plasma are thus:
    1. LCD are better at 40' & under. (However LCD's with the new 100mhz technology just about fix this size/quality issue, but not entirely. Sony call this new feature 100mhz Motionflow)
    2. Plasma are better above 40".

    Remember, full HD (1920-1080) LCD will probably win this flat panel battle & plasma will just fade away onto the sunset. LCD are cheaper to produce & cheaper to run & are rapidly getting better & better.

    Have fun making a decision

    I've got a 50" Sony LCD, but then bought a 42" Samsung Lcd for the father in law. In my opinion the Samsung is far better and after two years, is holding it's colour/contrast much better.

    Sony all the way. I love my 40" Bravia and it had the richest colour balance of all the screens I looked at.
