RE: My Budget Home cinema

hi, thanks Smile  i really dont know. i will have to start doing some research, kind of fancy getting a 3d capable tv but not sure of make or anything really yet, wouldnt need to be a smart tv as the ps3 can do anything one of those can and probably better!

dont think id want to be spending more than £700 either..... this probably limits me to very few tvs!!

usually lg tvs are good with sd-aerial or received via video connection.HDMI seems do ruin the image a bit.

RE: My Budget Home cinema

plasma or led ady?

the gt30 iv'e got is going for under £700 now,if you can find one...last years model :roll:

i had a samsung led for about 5yrs before the gt30,the difference in quality in new generation tv's is astonishing tbh.

Tbh yes it is although avatar is stunning in 3D,seen some other decent films aswell but i wouldn't buy a tv soley for 3D,anyways i think the vast majority of present gen sets have that capability.

You do realize you are breaking house rules by advertizing your equipment for sale.
