Hi guys,

This is my first post but I'm struggling on this one and wondering if any of you with experience could help me out. I've read a lot of the discussions about these two TVs but still can't quite make up my mind. I'm wondering which will go best in my room. Below is an image of the room it's going in. It will be hung on the wall approximately where the purple picture is at the end. As you can see the room is very bright in the daytime. There are blinds that can be rolled down over all the windows but I don't really want to have to do that every time I want to watch TV unless it's a movie!

I watch movies - mainly bluray but some in SD and mainly at night. I watch a lot of sport and that's mainly in the daytime. I have seen both TVs separately in smaller sizes in show rooms and I can tell that the motion/colours are more natural on the panny. However I'm wondering what will suit the room better - the less reflective panny or the brighter but more reflective Sam.

Really appreciate any help.

Cheers.

For that room it looks like you might even need an F8500, but don't quote me on that. biggrin.gif

What are the prices for those two sets?

Imo lcd would be best for you if your are going to be doing lots of daytime viewing without the blinds being rolled down.

Marantz NR1403
Bose Acoustimass 10
Panasonic BDT220 Blu Ray Player

Id even add the samsung F8500 if I were you, with its brighter screen it may give you the best of both worlds.......

Hi all, thanks very much for the replies. Really useful. Do we have a date for the F8500 plasma in the UK yet?

Panny 2500 and Sam 2700. So basically the same. I've asked about the F8500. It's much brighter is it? I'll very seriously consider it since both you and another have suggested it.

If you are in the UK then I siggest heading over to avforums (the EU sister site basically) they would probably ahve more information there. This while an international forum is more of a NA based site.
