Advice On Tv Selection 40-46inch


Recommended Posts

Looking to get a new flat screen TV.

Looking to spend anything up to 2000 but would prefer under if possible.

Looking for 40-46 inch and no real preference for LCD, LED, or Plasma.

What brands/models should I be looking at for the best value.

Do you have a bright room? Normal light or dark room?

What will you be watching mostly on the TV? (FTA, Foxtel, Blu-Ray, DVD, Gaming?)

For price alone; it'd be hard to beat the current price (with free delivery) on a Telefunken (Samsung panel) 107cm (42inch) High Definition Plasma TV with Built-In HD DVBT Tuner and Video Recording via USB connection. Of course if resolution of 1024 x 768 is TOO low for your requirements then this one isn't suitable for you.

That panel is in today's price lists from oo.com.au, at $659.95

You can save a bit more paying through PayPal (cash back) but that may be for Today only.

Hi,

Here's my imput on this one.

A couple of months ago I got a 46inch LCD by Schaub Lorenz. It had the best picture I could find for the money. I run Foxtel IQ2 which is HD and the HD programs are amazing. Excellent blacks and excellent sound.

Do your self a favour and go and have a look at one.

I got if for $1750 from Challenge Hifi here in Adelaide. There are a number of retailers that stock this brand (mostly specialist stores).

Hope this helps.

Cheers

In my opinion the G10 is a good choice. Im also looking for a G10 or S20. I've written down in my note book that in some previous thread some1 claimed to have bargained a 50" G10 down to $1270, there was no receipt posted. I am very interested in the cheapest price you manage to find. I'm hoping to get a 42" G10 for under $1000, but I might be dreaming? I'll consider the newer generation S20 if it's around the same price as the G10, or if there is some valuable promotion. My understanding is that the G10 is very similar to the newer generation S20, less some power savings.

Well really depends on you room size having a small room and putting a 46inch Tv in it imo would be over kill. So if you have an average size room I would really suggest going with a 46inch as it really does make a difference :P

I dont think you should worry about LED since the cost is way more than your buget.

For a 46inch probably look at the Samsung 46inch LA46c650 or a Sony KDL46EX500. A Panasonic Plasma would also be quite good. If you really wanted you could go with a 50inch V10a which i think can be had from prices Between 1900-2000.

There is another thread where a poster scored a 55EX500 for $2099 including extended warranty and hdmi cable...If space isnt an issue than a upgrading a 46inch to a 55 for that price would be the way to go i reckon
