Getting a new TV this weekend im undecided which one i should get.

I watch Movies and Entertainment Shows more frequently than i do with Sport but i do enjoy watching Rallying and F1 shows.

Which TV would be more for me ?

How big do want this telly to be? You can't get a plasma under 42" any more so if your after something smaller it's irrelevant.

If 42 and above, then that might depend...but if you fancy a plasma buy a Panasonic

If you like movies and fast action stuff +watch TV in the evenings plasma is your screen.

Plasma offers the best all round TV picture.

If you have a very bright sunny room look at LED.

Look at the Panasonic txp ST50, GT50 or VT50.

38'' is big enough for me. Plasma seems to be far more suited for me then thanks for the replies

Plasma comes in 42"+

To be fair you will be fine with 42".

You haven't said what your budget was. 700 will get you a TX-P42ST50 Plasma.

You ALWAYS get a TV, think its big to find a few weeks later you could have gone bigger !

My budget around 400-550.

42'' will be the biggest TV i've got , in the past ive had 38'' and 21''

Hmm it will be a stretch to the 699 ST50 plasma then but worth it.

If not there are cheaper plasmas but they don't feature enough. A cheapo LED may be your only option then.

The LG LM620 and Panasonic ET5 LEDs are good around that price point.
