    So been checking a few times a week - still seems like the best deal.

    There's a few 40-42 inchers around $500-600, but they are 50hz.

    Any better deals around or is this the best go? BTW kebabs I went to Hardly Normals and they don't really have the same model lines - does your thingy still work?

    most sales people are oblivious as to what models they have on their own shop floor let alone what competing stores carry... so yes

    OK what 42" 100hz LCD you think I can get for <$600 plugged in? Or 37-42" LED for <$700?

    It's not a matter if being a tightarse - I just think if that $700 buck deal is a decent telly then I have no need for anything more flash as it will only be properly used a couple times a week.

    Sitting there watching teevee was never my thing, unless it's like 430am and too tired to do anything and can't sleep.

    I only really see it being used for video games now and then, and maybe some movies and stif on in the background - which obviously doesn't need mega quality.

    ( sent from pub #2 on the walk home from the office )

    A comparison between LCD, LED and Plasma on A Current Affair tonight.....

    They call it an expose on which one will die first but should be something for you to look at Ash.

    I was at JB's today buying gaming stuff, haven't bought anything for gaming for a decade and almost went for a new TV as well, the LCD's look great, but you need to be a little careful as they play demo DVD's through them that may look a lot better than what you get at home.

    Giving this thread a bump, &#039;cos i bumped something else earlier today... :scared:

    So i fumbled a wii remote and cracked my friends 52&quot; Sharp Aquos which must now be replaced. Can anyone assist with getting a better than retail price?

    I&#039;ve done some googling and ive found Bing Lee as the cheapest so far http://www.binglee.com.au/sharp-lc52...utm_medium=cpc at $1700 which can surely be dropped a few hundred in store, is that a good price/

    Kids play room dvd player needed upgrade, so ended up buying a new dvr, actually a pvr for our lounge, and putting the 2 yr old Panasonic DVR in for the kids...

    Super impressed...

    Samsung Smart thingo....

    BD-E8500A

    500 gb storage, blue ray (our first), dual channel/core, wifi and LAN, Pic in Pic (love this), 3D (don't have telly yet), and media share... does internet, maps, google, twitter, youtube features etc too...

    Really smooth operation, great quality picture even on our 7 yr old Samsung 40" LCD...

    and now we can use just one remote for most stuff too.....

    But right now, I'm loving the PIP stuff.... it's great to surf around without breaking the program you're watching.

    And only $600 with 5 years new for old warranty. The panasonic was around $1500 I think...

    Bought a new fridge freezer too, which helped the price a tad, but got a great deal on that too.

    I've got a Plasma but I hear the OLEDs are now just as good. Does anyone have one of the latest OLED sets and what's the view on them. I'm looking at either an LG or Panasonic set.

    The LG C9 series is very highly rated, even though it's about 1 year or 18 months old. Even the newest LG tech (the CX?) that was unveiled at CES 2020 is not leaps and bounds better. David Jones in Perth has the 77" C9 for display and its crazy how sharp and clear the picture is. I really can't imagine how much better tv panel technology can get.

    Apparently LG makes the panels for Sony apart from the highest Sony range.

    Yeah the LG C9 is what I'm thinking now that Panasonic is leaving the market. The improvement on the CX isn't that large so I think the techs about maxed out.
