Yup - Rx135 - you are right.

I now recall that the TV which used London Bridge in its ads was indeed Binatone, but it was Nikitasha which claimed 3D capabilities.

It is too far back in time; I hope I am right.

Finally ive decided on a tv for myself. It will be the new series 5 51" plasma from Samsung. It should be available in 2 weeks and im getting quite a good deal on it.

But need your help guys, I need another tv. Budget about 45-47k, what is the largest tv I can get in that? Only for normal cable tv, full hd is not important.

Hello Buddies.

Recently got home a 55" Samsung Series 8, 3D LED and to compliment that have switched my Tata Sky + box to the HD + and its been a blessing in disguise. We watched the entire world cup + the ongoing IPL in Full HD.

I also added a 5.1 channel Harmon/kardon HT speakers with a Yamaha 7.1 Channel receiver.

Watching TV was never so much fun.

Hey Speed

What did you pay for the 55" and more specifically for your Harmon Kardon 5.1's and Channel receiver ?

If you could update - installation, prize, pics - would be SUPER!!

Keep Enjoying!!

+1 to that - speed-freak - we have a dedicated home theatre thread here.

I am looking forward to your buying experience (for the HT part) there.

What are the points made you to go for new 5 series 51" plasma as their own website says that old 5 series 50" is much better than the new one(compare both on Samsung India site and it tells which is best) as I was about to finalise it(PS50C550) in March but have waited for new models to come.

New 5 series Samsung plasma is 3D enabled also has a real black filter which improves the contrast. Please see the following link.

The TV worth watching - PS51D550C1M 51" Series 5 Plasma - Plasma TV - Television | SAMSUNG

Hope this is the same model available in India as well.

If you compare both, it just says the tick mark means best. This is written on the left side, so you may have assumed the tv on the left was best. Actually it is on there on the comparison sheet if you see.

Ive decided on this, and going to make the payment in the next few days. Basically because it is cheaper than the older series 5 while giving you 3D, and a minutely larger screen size, and a little lighter in weight.

Kevin - Yes that is the tv, it will be in stock in 15 days.

Default Spike Buster goes bust!! (thanks god)

Today, I almost broke into tears just as HH Sai Baba was being laid to rest.

No; I am no Sai Baba fan; just that the transformer somewhere on the power grid decided to violently and audibly malfunction precisely at that point of time, and at the end of resultant voltage fluctuations; the inverter was overloaded and TV (a 32 inch Haier LCD, if you had noticed my small post sometime back) was dead. The Inverter usually takes a lot more load, and we were concerned.

The TV was fed from a Belkin spike buster (thanks to all you guys on this forum - but cannot remember which thread it was), and that in turn fed the STB and the blu ray player too. I finally decided to eliminate load after load from the buster, and finally, was left with nothing except with the bare spike buster and the inverter was still tripping. I connected the TV directly to the mains, and thankfully, it worked; but could not view the "event" since the STB had no power source.

Finally, power came on after a long time; and could smell burning plastic when I tried the spike buster again.

So, took out the spike buster which was protecting my computer (had one between the UPS and the computer hehehe - experience), and things were working as usual.

They were showing the credits after the event. ;-(

Moral - (a) use a spike buster - a burnt ₹600 worth spike buster is better than ₹ 60K worth TV and related equipment.

(b) there is indeed somebody up there who did not want us watching that.

@akshay1234-

Indeed a very good decision. I own the PSC7000 series plasma.
It has stellar picture quality. Much better than Panasonic V series. Also with the 3D compatibility it is the best buy in this price range.

Please check Plasma TV Buying Guide: Plasma TV Reviews, HDTV Ratings, Pricing and Comparisons for picture settings to get the best out of your TV. I believe your model comes with the web browser and QWERT remote.

Wonderful post! Had me in splits.

I really should get a Belkin spike buster as well. Had seen it at Croma, but for some reason thought of gettign it later. Shall buy one over the weekend.

The good spike busters have a "Semiconductor Fuse" which blows very fast if the threshold voltage is exceeded. You are lucky to have it in the spike buster. The part should be available in any electronics component store at a fraction of the cost of the whole piece. It is DIY job to replace it.
