As far as picture performance goes Philips are still the best eye candy IMO. I like a vibrant picture with plenty of detail and Philips are my preferred and easly best tv for picture performance
Have you considered 3D? I have a LG 3D tv set and just watched the Euro football match in 3D. The quality is amazing. If you're interested, you should look into it. Way better than what people give credit for.
LG 47LM960V is a great choice. It uses Nano full led to make the black level can be dimmed deeply. Motion is handled radically well by this TV. The fast panel and good motion processing feature is the key. I def recommend this Tv.

I have a LG LM860V and I would def recommend it or the LM960V. I don’t know much about it besides that it is superior to mine. Awesome design, awesome picture quality, awesome feature are all that I know. I can’t get into technical words like other. Just buy it, it is great.
till death separate us
I heard a lot of great reviews on the LG LM960V. Other TVs like Samsung ES8000 are also a great brand but I really am not comfortable with active glasses.
My budget would probably be no more than £2K, obviously dont really want to spend that, i currently have a Sony KDL40W4500 and Panasonic DMPBD55 blu ray player, must be coming up to 4 years now but the picture is still fantastic, so i really want to see a difference paying that sort of money.
What about a 50-inch TV? Look at the Panasonic GT50 & VT50. If it was my money, I would choose between the 2 Panasonics, & Sony HX853.
Most TVs in the market can be bought for your budget.
Got to agree with bigboss re the two Panasonic options but i only suggested the tvs that i did originally due to the screen size you wanted but if you were to look at a 50 inch tv then the VT50 is simply stunning and is where my money would go without hesitation, it's probably the best tv you could buy at the moment.
I have the samsung ue55es8000 and have to say that even after a month of owning it I'm still amazed by the picture quality. So on that basis I'd have to say you should seriously looks at the 46es8000, however you also mention your budget can stretch to 2 grand and if that'd the case why don't you just get the 55es8000? Prices have dropped recently and I got mine from John Lewis on their price match scheme for £1985, they also give you a 5 year extended warranty and currently if you buy a samsung tv you get a free galaxy pad!! It's a great deal.
It's now almost a month since you started this thread, so you may have bought a TV by now. If not, I concur with the various choices (Panasonic, Sony, Samsung) of those whom I have quoted. Getting a 46" or 47" TV is definitely NOT ENOUGH of an increase over your existing 40" Sony. Go for the biggest one that you can within your budget.

I think ive decided on the Panasonic VT50, although the price tag is putting me off, might wait a few months and see if the price drop, the whathifi review says lower priced rivals run it close, what would anyone choose instead of the VT50, bearing in mind im mainly interested in the best picture possible.
Thanks for everyones help
The review on the VT50 actually says that its lower price sibling - the GT50 - runs it close, not any of its rivals.
Obviously no one can foresee when - or by how much - a particular model will drop in price, but for example my 42GT30 was a tad under £1,400 when it was launched last year. 12-months later picked up mine up half-price for £700 and couldn't be happier, so really it all comes down to how long you are prepared to hold out for.
