Any particular DVD player models in pioneer,philips etc?

Also is it possible to play usb directly in Panasonic C10 or we need a dvd player with USB port for that?

Forgot the model number of Pioneer but they have one with USB and upscaling in India costs 6K in grey, Philips 3996 try your luck as its stopped now available for 3200-3500.Not sure but Penny C10 is not having any USB port so you have to buy either media player or DVD player.

Philips.
Dont trust me blindly go and compare all available brands with Philips, dont go with demo Blue ray discs ask them to play DVD's, DTH and normal cable as well.

I ran my 29" Samsung semi flat CRT for 4 years without one, so Stabilizers are thing of past. I'm running my Plasma directly.

Yesterday saw an ad for Panasonic 42" LCD full HD for 55,000/- and 42" Full HD plasma for 65,000/-. I thought plasmas were cheaper. Any comments on panasonic LCD?

I have been thinking of getting myself a flat panel from some time but didn't have the time and money to be serious. Anyway this festival season I feel we can get the best bargains, what with recession and inventory clear up for new year. So I went around yesterday to various showrooms to have a look and this is what I found-

I saw the LCDs from Samsung, LG, Sony and Panny. And Bravia is good but many other have caught up with them since I saw last time. I can't remembers the models since they all have some LH/TH/LS blah blah numbers.
There was this LG PS series which was looking quite excellent. The Samsung (some model) was also ok and surprisingly the Panny (some x9) was equally good as the best there though it was kind of not kept well. The other thing was that it's colors were vibrant and the viewing angle was the best of the whole lot, even expensive ones.

I just looked at the basic specs but not too much since I think how it appeals to me when I view them live is what matters most than the actual specs.

I also went to other showroom where they had this Panny 32x9 with Panny 42c10 and they both were fantastic.

Now coming to the prices the 32" ones which I am primarily interested were all prices around 30k-35k for HD versions. The Panny LCD is at the lower end of the price band though it is as good as others in picture quality so that makes it a great bargain.

I would have liked to go for the 42c10 which was quoted at 44k and it looked fabulous but felt it's a little too big for me and I am not too much of a TV viewer. But there was this 37" FHD Panny LCD which is going for 44k which will be the perfect size.

So my question is how much is Full HD a necessity for me , beacuse it costs a full 10K more?
My viewing is mostly Sports, Discovery, Natgeo and maybe some Movies once in a while. Do Tata sky or Dish warrant a full HD?

It's all LCD rage out there and the only plasma was one model of LG and Panasonic ones but they were not gathering much attention. The Bravias are the most expensive LCD, are they worth so much ?

Those are MRPs, not discounted prices. You will surely get deep discounts on that. In Bangalore one can get G10 for about 62-63 if bargained hard.

Thanks for the information, MRPs (as per the brochure) are around 71,990 for S10, 55,900 for C10 & 79,900 for G10. I got a call from the sales guy now and he quoted 65,000 for S10, 47,500 for C10 & 71,990 for G10 as the best price.
