cheers
Suppose I am lucky and live near to a Tesco Direct Catalog store,at this store they have three walls covered in all makes from 20 inch up to
the limit,£79 to £3K, Tesco like Argos will sell end of line stock, they will also sell
demo tvs, these have usually been left on for three months or longer,
I only mention Tesco, due to the no quibble guarantee,take it back within the first year and get another of equal value,I would deal with an indie,but he is about to close. I am sure red is happy with his buy, I know Aldi are honourable people , but I am always aware of these one week in a year deals, I can say the tesco own brand 42 inch as a better spec, but the prices have tumbled in the past year, again I always ensure when I buy,the box is sealed, never opened no matter what is said by the store . Bit of a sod Wrexham is the largest town out of Cardiff, only one indie with a conabation of over half a million,the Tesco web site gives prices, but never the in store specials, if you want the best guarantee in the world go to John Lewis, 5 years free, like Tesco they will give you
a year for free(no payment for a year) or interest free and credit cards.
Aldi & Lidl only deal in cash, no credit no frills, As for Plasma or LCD,I wont get involved in this argument, except plasma make good room heaters
in winter, I am told. and Finaly I wont deal with Currys or Comet, no guarantee they will be here next year, well in my town.

Second that. Argos had a 1080p model last month at about the same price.
Those wall mounts (free with the Aldi set) are costly bits of metal though. Bought one off Ebay for a 19" TV, only £8 including delivery. Why do the local shops all charge £30 upwards for a kit to hang your TV on the wall?

Its what the market will afford, watch the prices tumble now we are in a recession ,and there will be loads of repos around.

One has to be careful in where a big TV is bought,they do have a habit of going wrong,anyhow Argos are now the UKs lead in selling end of line stock.
Some of it years old.

Slightly off on a tangent but

My mate went to a Sony shop to be a 32" lcd and fell in love with a 42" inch instead. He wasn't sure if it would suit the room he was getting it for, the shop assistant said "No problem" and handed him a lifesize poster of a 42" tv and told him to go home and try it out. Brill, it worked, he went back and bought the telly.

Sometimes its the simplest of things

Yes simple, but a photo is not a real LCD, the bigger the LCD the bigger room needs to be, due to SD blur/etc.

It seems to me if its SD, the CRT, which may be smaller is just as good due to being able to get closer due to its clear pics.
my opinion and I am only talking SD.

There's also Sub-SD (many of the inferior under-funded digital satellite and terrestrial channels), which digital artefacts are so apparent on CRT, but may# be more acceptable viewed on a TV with inherent blur (LCD).

#I've not witnessed those channels on a large LCD so it's just personal theory.

Its Sunday Morning, its Sunny, we are all in a good mood,its breakfast time here in the hills, I am just reaching for the H.P. and I rate the sauce very highly even though its now made outside Birmingham,well at least in Europe.

H.P of course stands for Houses Of Parliament sauce, at the moment I dont rate the place H.P sauce gets its name from.
