How are the Samsung LED TVs in comparison to the Sony LED tvs?
My grandmother is looking for a TV for herself.
At Croma, she saw 3 TV's, and is confused:
- 46" Sony LCD for 80K
- 40" Sony LED for 1.2L
- 40" Samsung LED for 82-83K.

She is very keen on the Sony, but I heard that Samsung LED TVs are better and am pushing for that. Is that true?
Also, would LCD be better, or LED?
Will be mainly used by her grandchildren to watch Disney, Pogo, etc. and by her for the famous serials. She isn't the sort who changes TVs often, so reliability is important, as well as the style and look.

Maybe you should consider a Plasma TV for her.
More longevity than LCD/LED.
Better performance too!

Go For LCD rather than Plasma, plasma will have some issues later, as of LED its a new comer, not stabilised in the market yet.

I would agree with anupmathur. Go for a plasma, normal cable looks best on them. And if you can get a 46" plasma that would be ideal, for older people the bigger the easier it is for them to see. Also make sure the TV has decent speakers, we know how loud those serials play .

LEDs are a gimmick right now.
Opt for a LCD which shows the SD content better.

Haha, thanks guys.
The Plasma is a strict no-no for its higher power consumption. They have one plasma, and will definitely not buy another one.
So options are between LCD and LED.

^^ you can go for a backlit LED (not edge lit), as pic quality of backlits are comparable to plasmas (especially the blacks)

I had the chance to speak to a big time dealer of samsung lg brands and his recommendation is to not go for lcd led models now. the back lit and edge lit are not full led models , the full organic led is launched next year only so i also dropped the idea of going for a led. he is a wholesaler and a very reliable source.

OLED TV's costs a bomb now. It will take at least 2-3 years for the OLED technology to be as viable as today's LED's.

I think your comment is in response to mine jassi.

I got the idea of going for plasma after seeing the panasonic plasmas' only. so its on the top of my wish list. But then my friend's friend deals with the korean brands and i am thinking if i there are good model plasma in samsung i will go for that, else i will settle down for the c550 lcd models.

Its more of a relationship perspective than the brand.

@digitalvampire: agreed, but then it would come down eventually much faster than we expect. The LED LCD is a classic example.

Is there any real difference between HD ready and Full HD telecast, will there be any perceivable difference in quality to the human eye.

Saw a couple of Panasonic Plasma tvs today and the price is about 10000-13000 extra for a Full HD model. The salesman was saying that even the HD telecast are 768 telecast only and it will be another few years before the 1080p telecast can happen. Is that true?

For a normal viewer who watches TV (not much dvd/ no games) on a major scale (lets say all genre of channels), will a HD ready (1024*768) be sufficient.

Edit: Do anyone have the samsung plasma PS42B450 tv, any inputs or reviews would be helpful to make a a decision

Its a good TV but its last years model.
Will suggest you to get Samsung C450 which is the 2010model and replacement of B450.
Am also considering the same and trying to find a good deal in ncr.

If your distance is less than 10 feet Hd ready will do for you.

No that is not true. DishTV and SunTV are providing full HD content, but on few channels only. I mean, not all channels transmit full HD content, some do which will have "HD" mentioned specifically. Like Discovery (HD).

If you are not using or not going to use a DTS which has these features and you don't watch movies (downloaded or blueray) buying full HD does not seem to be a sensible Idea. HD ready will do for regular viewing.
