If your Sony HT was one of those HTIB with built in dvd player it will mostly not have a single audio or video IN port and there is no solution to this.

Yes. Prices are higher by around 15K-20K than the last published market price.

Delhi price should be around 78K (+/- 5K)

Edit: No idea about gray market. Ask Khoj.

For the price, it is a good TV (as per the reviews, no first hand information).
It would be nice to check it out in person at a local store before you buy it online.

Guys I am thinking of buying this

LG 47 inch LED 5700 Series
http://www.flipkart.com/lg-47ls5700-...f-1364f975f7fa


I was drooling for Panasonic 50st50 but the price is out of my budget.

Gurus please tell me what you think of the LG TV that I mentioned above..

Price - I must get it for around 70k.

Also if someone can differentiate between 50ST50 and 50UT50...

Picture quality : not much difference in a dark room but in a brightly lit room ST performs much better
Wifi : ST has it built in, but for UT you need a wifi dongle
Neo plasma panel : ST has it, UT does not
Price : ST is pricey, UT is quite good VFM.

If you are buying for a brightly lit room, one which has windows through which a lot of sunlight comes or it has many lights, then go for ST. Otherwise go for UT.

Thanks, my living room is sufficiently lit. But I think UT will still be a better buy owing to its price. I think I am now inclining towards this plasma.

The UT is a great TV. I am also using it since August. You need to calibrate it properly though.

Hi. Even I have 42 inch ut. Can you please share the values of the various parameter you have set in your tv during calibration? Somehow even after calibration I am not so satisfied with the outcome. That's why. Thanks

Here are the settings.

Note - 16:9 overscan should be off for HD and on for SD.

Turn the lights off and enjoy HD channels.

That is a very highly rated TV. You should get it for less than 70K; more like the price shown at Flipkart.

But do note that LG TVs have no audio out other than an optical.
Do you have a home theater system that accepts optical or HDMI?
Else you better add a substantial amount to have good 5.1 audio.

I dare say a Sony with the X-Reality Pro engine would beat this one hollow!
