New tv

After reading all the reveiws and dos and donts regarding tv i'm lost who new there was so much to consider.So thought I'd ask you lot,here goes.

I mostly watch everything through sky hd and the odd movie on my panasonic bd player.main veiwing room is large enough to consider even a 65inch set but price maybe aproblem with that. I currently have A 50in panasonic plasma pz80 i think but want to go larger  not sure whether to switch to led.My budget will be not a penny more than £2000.

Any and all comments appreciated.

RE: New tv

You're right, no 65-inch ST60 for UK. Check this thread:

Not sure of its price, but should be on top of your list if within your budget:

The Samsung will be about 10% over your budget:

RE: New tv

Buy a Samsung TV as the Panasonics have way too many bad things happening.... and have done for a few years now.

Those Kikatek prices are very low. Question is, would you buy from this retailer?

I'd expect most prices to be higher (online only and high street).

RE: New tv

The samsung and the outgoing st50 look great but as i said absolute max is £2grand so may have to plump for a 55 and have a few quid in my pocket. still not sure on the LED/PLASMA argument though,seems bothhave there merits and pitfalls

Just buy the TV that looks best to your eyes regardless of technology.

RE: New tv

Bear in mind that since ST50 is an outgoing model, it will fall further in price. Or you could negotiate with the dealer to match your budget. I'm sure they'll oblige.
