    Brand new Samsung LED, 55", 1080P, 120Hz and the picture is GORGEOUS. And we upgraded our Verizon FIOS system to get all of the available HD channels.

    cool!! glad your happy with it john :) when i was in the shop on monday there was a large quantity of samsungs on show and the pictures looked great, wasnt sure if they were lcd or led's tho. also watched a bit of a pixar type movie in 3d and nearly changed my mind in what id ordered and bought one, it was great so much depth and the usual 3d effect to make you jump, was very cool!! but still not convinced they will die a death tho like the vhs/betamax from back in the day

    We bought ours back in 2007 I think and at the time it was top of the range, cost us £5k... but it's been fantastic and is a brilliant tv. ( imho) jai spent a lot of time researching before we went for this particular model

    £5k eeeeek Holy Cow, I could have bought 3 of the one I just bought for that price.

    Mick, IMHO, the 3D is still in its infancy and WAY too expensive. Besides I don't want to sit there wearing special glasses just to watch my TV.

    I know :insane: But he works hard and wanted a tv that he could enjoy.

    To b fair they were new on the market and as with anything that's new they come at a premium at first.

    Whenever he spends on something big, he tries to get the best we can afford at the time, as with most things in life, you get what you pay for and touch wood it's held us in good stead so far

    back then they were very expensive still, esp for a pioneer. they are no longer tho, panasonic bought out the ailing company and recruited a lot of their engineers. pioneer were just a tad better than the panasonics but they are out on their own at the mo

    that was the big turn off for me john. i dont want to sit there with big clunky glasses on when i watch either

    ive been looking at tv's for the last few years and i noticed that most lcds back then lost their picture when you viewed at an angle, and that was all makes i looked at

    led's are said to be better than lcd's im told, they did look crisper and the colours looked better imo. i know it just knocks your sox of doesnt it esp blue ray :)

    i bought a panasonic 50" neo plasma. the neo's use less power, have richer blacks than anything else they've done before and it just blew me away with the picture quality :D

    Both Samsung and Sony came highly recommended to us. However, when we saw them side by side in the store the Samsung won without an argument. Plus it was a tad cheaper if I remember correctly. We also bought a blu-ray at the same time.

    when i looked at the sony's john i wasnt terribly impressed with the lcd picture. ive been told so many times sony's are more expensive to repair and the parts are more expensive too.

    well i got the tv home on saturday, the box was HUGGGGGGGGGE!!!! :lol: but it fit in the boot of my mpv like it was made to go in it :lol: unboxed it at home and put the stand on which weighed a ton in itself, and just set it up on the floor in front of the old tv as i had no one here to lift the old one off the stand and the screen looked huge then, but next day when it went on the stand it looks even bigger, but WOW!! what a picture, it just blew my sox off, so im really pleased with the purchase :yes: :D
