I'm in the market to buy an entry level new 42" LED/LCD TV ~£350 Samsung/sony/LG - You know the ones. I don't care about 3D and am ruling out plasma for reflection (bright room) and power munching reasons.
But, I also have the opportunity to buy second hand for the same price a Sony KDL-40EX503. This is a 2010 £700 model WHF product of the year.
What I would like to know: is the 2nd hand 2010 mid price model likely to comete favourably in picture quality with the 2012 entry level models, or has the rapid progress of TV technology meant new cheap models are beating old mid level models.
I would appreciate some insight into this.
