    I reckon: £390 but no Smart functionality: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-UE42...dp/B00BTG8AR4/
    or £425 with Smart TV: http://www.amazon.co.uk/LG-42LB580V-...dp/B00J3328KA/

    EDIT: You know what, actually - best I can see is at Currys - £350 for a Panasonic. No Smart TV, but if you're connecting your PC then it's no great loss. Full HD, Freeview HD, £100 cheaper than Amazon and £50 cheaper than at eBuyer, and Panasonics are almost always top in terms of picture quality.

    I like the look of that LG one that was none 3D with the thin border etc - just wondering if 3D would be worth it as can watch 3D blu rays on it etc or just get the one you linked to ( none 3D ) ??

    I have an Epson projector capable of very good 3d - I would miss the projector, not the 3d.

    If you're going to go 3D, the LG Cinema 3D (passive 3D) is the way to go - glasses that cost £1, not £100, lots of pairs for your mates, no annoying flicker...

    That said, I have a 3D LG TV and I reckon I use 3D about twice a year. Nice if it's there as a feature, but don't go out your way to get it.

    Having played Playstation and watched 3D films on a TV with active shutter glasses, all i can say is WOW. Yes they weigh and cost a little more than the passive glasses, but with the sharpness and vibrancy of colours is definately worth it. So much better than the cinema using passive glasses.
    I always buy my TVs from Richer Sounds with their 5 year guarantee.

    If you really want to save the planet don't buy a TV (or projector) at all what with all of the heavy metals and such used in their manufacture that will eventually go into a landfill somewhere.

I'd recommend LG any day!

    I bought this one also, connect it via Ethernet to switch and right click any media file on your PC and play to tv (DNLA) works a treat!
