Its already been discontinued and this was the last piece. I really don't care about that. The motion issues you talk about don't exist once updated to the latest firmware which I've already done . Motion is perfect now.

Congrats ROC and thanks again for advising me on my choice in 2008.
Croma in Delhi is quite expensive and I only go there for low ticket items (CD case, small capacity flash drives, etc).
On a side note, I recently bought a Logitech keyboard+mouse (MK250) for 1200. Croma was quoting Rs. 1550. Perhaps they do bargain on higher priced items.

Its the same here as well. Croma is typically overpriced. However this was a steal of a deal. I had gone there just to see what options exist in the market. Never did I imagine I'd be buying something within one hour.

The Pioneer I recommended to you would still be my first choice but unfortunately its no longer available. This was the best I could get otherwise.

How is the LG LH-90 LED ? I'm confused about the LED panel, some claim Samsung has only LED sides where as this particular LG model is a complete LED backlit panel hence giving a far better picture quality.

What other options do I have in 46-47inch full LED? Have been qouted 83k for LH-90 in 47 inch

^^All the samsungs are edge lit not direct lit/local dimming. They are more hype than substance. IMHO I prefer the conventional CCFL lit B650 to the B6000/7000 series TVs.

The LH90 is great on paper but its not as good as the specs suggest in reality. However its not a bad TV either. Just that it had the potential of being much much better.

How much are you planning to spend?

What makes you say the LH90 is not as good in reality? What other options are better?

How's the Samsung 650?
We have 3 Samsung 530s at home all in different sizes, been quite happy with its since its used mainly for DTH viewing. It is also available in 46inch, was initially planning on just getting that for 67k but then thought I'd get a direct LED with 200mhz since this will be the largest TV at home. 90% usage will be on Tata SKy+

Sahil, I paid approx. 1.5 L in Singapore for this.

It's not a direct LED, but the Series 8, has 200 Mhz and the picture quality is impressvive.

I compared this to a Panny and Pioneer Plasma.

The difference between 100 and 200mhz is probably visible in regular DTH viewing too, right?

Yes, also I flipped for the design of the Samsung LED. Not to mention far more features than Panny/ Pioneer Full HD Plasma.

You can hang it on the wall like a portrait, with their bracket. It's really very very slim.

I am in search for a plasma 42 inches. I have shortlisted PQ 70. Today I had been to Home Town, Marthahalli.

I was quite happy to see PQ30, PQ60 and PQ 70 are displayed side by side.

This is first time I am seeing this in Bangalore. Usually most of the shops does not have a stock or not displayed plasma.

Picked up a Panasonic 42G10 this week for 63K from Koramangala Brand shop. Hooked it up with Airtel DTH, XBOX 360 and a Sony DVD player via my aging Yamaha amp that can take component video max.

I must say SD content viewing via Airtel DTH is quite impressive. HD content via XBOX is awe inspiring.

Hi Guys,

Need a advise.

My Dad planning to get a LED TV from Dubai next month.

1. Is it wise to buy it from there or buy from India?
2. What about Warranty issues?
3. Cost difference
4. Should it be LED or LCD or Plasma? Which model best to opt for? Dad was suggesting Sony Bravia

Your inputs would be helpful to decide.

Finally settled on getting the 47inch LG LH50 for 61k.

Was very keen on getting the LH90, but LG has been very smart and discontinued it to make space for the Infernia. The LH90 was the only direct LED in the market.
My other option was the SL90 but I see no point in buying a Edge Lit LED, it's gotta be full and direct or I rather stick with the regular LCD hence decided on the LH50.

I have been a Samsung loyalist for a while, all LCDs in the house are Samsung. But since I was letting go of my direct LED plans due to non availability , I decided I want atleast a 200mhz LCD. Samsung had only the series 7 with 200mhz, the LG had the LH50. Specs wise both were simlar but the Samsung was almost double the price !
Hence LG was the sensible buy IMO, moreover they are the only ones that offer extended warranty which I require desperatly as two of my previous LCDs have gone kaput thanks to our sea-front home.
