    42" TVs

    I've decided to replace the TVs in my bedrooms and I'm looking for 42" models.

    I don't need anything particularly fancy - just normal inputs, 1080i HD, nice bright screen, etc. I don't need any 'smart TV' bollocks.

    This is an area I don't know much about - Does anyone have any recommendations for models & prices?

    Thanks.

    I have a 42" LG. Cost about 25k. LG 42LM5800.
    Also a Samsung 55". Cost about 45k. UA55H6400AK.

    Both are plenty smart enough for me.

    ^

    I bought my 50 " 6 months ago for 19K . LG .

    Dumb Telli's are getting cheaper by the day, shop around, you'll find a 42 " for piss all.

    I was at On Nut today, Lotus had a section where they where dumping Tellis out on special. Check that out.

    Also Power Buy MBK is a good place to look.

    Big C has a large range as well.

    Spend the time getting around, its worth the effort.

    Stick with the name brands.

    Bullshit Albert,

    I bought a Samsung 41" about 30 months ago for the bedroom, 24-25k, screen went red after a week, Numchai replaced it no ploplem, was ok for the next 2 years when the guarantee expired then uncannily developed one and a bit later another line permanently down the screen.

    ,I bought a Samsung first and thought it was great, then got an LG, I much prefer the LG, better picture, thinner model, and better sound.

    LED and both around the 15 to 18,000 mark
