  • TV recommendations?

    I'm probably going to buy a new TV in the near future - has anyone got any recommendations, please (manufacturer/model & retailer)?

    I'll be looking for a 32-37 inch LCD or Plasma.

    Depends on your budget but Plasma is better quality than LCD.

    I personally would recommend Panasonic or Sony.

        I have a 42" Panasonic Viera Plasma set and it has a screen saver that kicks in after 30 mins (IIRC). I haven't had any issues at all with my set and they now come with a 5 year warranty. Take a look here: Panasonic TX-P37X10

        My son has a 47" LCD Sony and the quality is noticeably inferior to my Panasonic.

            but then I am biased towards Panasonic
            Hmm, tempting! I also have a lot of regard for Panasonic stuff.

              I absolutely agree ... I have the Panasonic 37 Viera and the resolution is absolutely brilliant. The quality is also top notch ... the price well that's another issue,but you dooo get what you pay for. So much so that 3 friends have bought identical TV's on the strength of seeing mine .... Hmmm poerhaps I should contact Panasonic for some discount


              Oh by the way I hope you all a fantastic Christmas

                I have the Sony 46" Bravia LCD TV, KDL-46W5500 in my photography classroom and the Samsung 40" LCD TV - LE40B535 Full HD at home. The first one was suppose to be the good one, but half the price and lots easier to use, the quality of the Samsung makes me recommend it as an excellent TV for showing photographs.

                  I'm very happy with my Toshiba 32" LCD, but if I were in the market for a new one, I'd definitely go for an LED TV. A startling difference if you see the three types together!

                    I also have a Panasonic Plasma a TXP42V10 so out of your size and budget however it is rather good for slide shows, you can put an SD card into the TV and it will show the images as a slide show (not very clever in terms of sorting by name) - only by date or sequence the images were copied to the SD card. It is also very good using a DVI to HDMI cable to get the laptop to display the full screen in good detail so you can use the computer based slide show programs to display images as well as teaching viewers how to suck eggs re spreadsheets, use of Photoshop etc without have to look over your shoulder.

                      After a lot of research Santa ( Mrs Claus) got me a Panasonic and I too would recommend it.

                        The Plasma screens are far superior to the LCD screens but have a look at the LED screens. Not yet up to Plasma standard but superior to the LCD. I have a Samsung 8000 series with an optional wireless network adaptor fitted.

                          Thanks for the replies so far.

                          I'm starting to go off the idea of a plasma TV - the power consumption seems very high on them. I'll start looking into LED.

                              Plasma was a lot better than LCD up to a couple of years ago, but the better LCDs are now very good. Back to back with a plasma, LCD still loses out, but the difference is not critical any more, in my view.
