    Agree, most will back whatever they have so perhaps not the best indicator

    Good advice, if it fits the budget and you are happy with it then it doesn't really matter if someone else thinks there is better technology available.

    I have Plasma and LCD TV's and both have the their strengths and weaknesses, neither are perfect.

    The more you read the more confused you get and the more questions you will have, the more doubt you will put into your mind.

    Yeah think your right about that death, good read though..Been doing a fair bit of reading on this site in regards to this thread.

    If you have a smallish room get an 32" LCD if you have a bigger one you may then consider 50" plasma ect..

    Recently I have really started to consider an 32" especially now as everyone has said its best suited for a small room which I have.

    [QUOTE=death;2193044] True but at least you get some opinions from people that own the TV ect..

    Thats what Im after, real opinions from people who do own a TV. I have been getting a lot of good feed back about Panasonic plasmas and have read a few articles in an Oz mag (cant remember the one) about Pana & Samsung for plasma and Sony for LCD. There was an interesting statment made by one of the big guns that plasmas are much more suitable than LCDs in Australia. Which in turn the mag said Sony had caused an outlash from the results.
    Anyone read that?

    So, did you end up getting a television and if so, what did you get?
    I went and checked out my folks new Bravia LCD yesterday and I was blown away.

    Hey "Watcher"
    Well I had my heart set on a 32" Panasonic TX-32LXD700A which I may have mentioned in the above post, mainly influenced by an Oz mag (SMARTHOUSE) am I allowed to mention this???? The LCD I think is the way to go as I do have a very small room, and after all the feed back from everyone (thanks) it is logical. BBBBUUUUUUUUUTTTTTTTTTTT I have been side tracked by the Bravia KDL32D3100 both have similar features but considering what I saw with my eyes more than anything else. I must take action and decide soon. Will post my purchase after the weekend (I hope)
    ha ha Ive just contridicted myself as above posts I was influced more so in plasmas...That has changed now my friends.

    Both the Sony and Pana are great models, not much between them but I have heard Sony is slightly better. I have a Pana plasma and am very happy with it.
    My dad has a pana LCD and its great.
    Either one is good, just flip a coin or get the cheaper one.

    Is it true that Plasma screens are a better option if you watch a lot of sports because of their higher refresh rates?

    Firstly G'day Death and Gaia, thanks for joing this post....
    Secondly decided enough was enough, and purchased my first ever flat panel TV, yes it has taken me this long to join the norm of todays digital TV society. Ended up getting an LCD, Panasonic TX-32LXD70A from Radio Rentals, is that good or bad?? Paid a little under $ 1650 for it which I really dont know if that is too much or not?? to be honest didnt have time to shop around every single store in Adelaide,which is not many anyway...Has anyone seen this cheaper???
    Also cause this is all new to me, and really didnt have the time of day whats the big differences between the TX-32LXD70A and the TX-32LXD700A?? I worried that I will regret not paying an extra $300 for this model..Colour dosent matter by the way (BLK)...
    Size is perfect, happy with the 8,500:1 contrast ratio, but hey first purchase so anything prob looks sensational to me...Thanks for everyone for your kind help...Lets see if I get addicted and up-grade after a while???

    They have more information than you can poke a stick at.
    BE WARNED: The more you read the more confused you get and the more questions you will have, the more doubt you will put into your mind.

    You probably already have a fair idea of what you want so as Nike always says "Just do it...."

    My advice:
    Set a firm budget
    Look at good quality brands only you dont want to buy a product that will die just outside its warrenty period. Yes you can get extended warrenties but most of them are not with the manufacturer directly so they will have fine print excluding some problems ect.. Factor in the cost of extended warrenty if you want it.

    If you have a smallish room get an 32" LCD if you have a bigger one you may then consider 50" plasma ect..
    You may be thinking, "I might change the room the TV is in to a bigger one should I buy bigger now just in case?" Answer NO by the time you decide to move it to another room big TVs will be MUCH cheaper and there may be another technology out there that is better suited. You can always turn your 32" LCD to a computer monitor or a gaming monitor later.

    i found out today that dick smith has a 14 day money back gurantee. . .no matter what, the sales rep even told me that i could "try out" any product and if it wasnt to my liking take it back within 2 weeks.

    I for one never knew that. . .

    That would be great but unfortunately you cant.


    Regarding plasma for sport ect.. well plasma were recommended for sport a while ago but I think if you are looking at the newest model LCDs it doesn't really matter.
    Plasma's I think get burn in more easily so you need to be careful because channel 9 ect.. have a watermark on it. I have a plasma and have no burn in but I dont watch alot of sport or alot of a single channel at one time.
    I record everything I want to watch and watch it later and fast forward ads and bits I dont want ect..
    But if you are watching long sessions of tennis or cricket there maybe some burn in.

    Read the dvt forums or AVS to get more opinions on this and proof of burn in ect..

    Another thing to consider is the light reflectiveness. I was led to believe plasma will not have glare on it if you have sunlight directly on it but this is not true there is defiantly glare. There was no glare on my dads LCD so my next TV will be a full HD LCD. Unless of course they come up with another viable better and cheap alternative

    My folks bought a new Sony Bravia LCD and have it out in the open plan kitchen/dining/family room which is brightly lit and has floor to roof windows down one side and there was no reflection/glare that I could see from all angles when checking it out.
    I also spent some time with my Xbox 360 on it and it looked superb.

    I would have to say that the "anti-glare" could maybe not be 100% depending on the possible placement of the TV and size..I mean you cant really say there will be no glare what so ever when you think about it.
    You got your TV in a spot that has sun light coming in at every angle will have to show some glare I would think so regardless of reflective panels, but giving credit where its due I would suppose it would take away the majority of glare...again the placement..(ha ha ) Ive had my TV for a short time and now I think Im an expert.LOL Its just what I think, not a fact so dont go by it...

    Just want to drop info

    There is a new technology better and cheaper than Plasma.

    It's said that it''ll be launched around Dec this year. So if you are not in hurry to get a plasma, maybe you can wait for the first launch.

    Where did you get this info from informant?? Im happy with my 32" for now and wont really see my self jumping to any other better technology anytime soon..Only because I just recently got into flat panel TVs (took me a while I know) but keep this post informed when you know more..
    Cheers.

    If your talking about SED, that looks promising, but has been "coming" for a while now.
