    I am planning to buy a new 42" LCD TV this Diwali (like so many else here!:))). After a lot of research on the internet and few visits to the showroom, I have landed on below two models:


    1. LG 42LD460 (Jazz Series)
    2. Panasonic TH-L42S10 (Viera Series)

    My budget is around 50,000/-

    I am a bit confused as to which model should I finalize?

    LG has certain advantage over the Panasonic one...

    • USB 2.0 support for DivX etc...
    • Dynamic Contrast Ratio 100000:1 (I know these are marketing gimmicks and would trust what I see)
    • Speakers 15W + 15W

    Anyone with a first hand experience, would be glad of their guidance regarding which model should I go for. Any other model apart from this would also be great!

    Thanx in advance!

    hi...am also looking for a TV in the same budget range... here's what I found out
    currently samsung TVs are selling the highest, specially due to the features
    most of my friends and all are recommending sony due to the service centers and (according to them) better picture quality.

    found this thread a little while back

    will post more as I get new info ...

    Thanx for the link.. but it is for LED TV's. I feel LED TV's are currently over-priced and out of my budget. So I would prefer LCD TV's for now.

    I couldn't come down to any single model on Samsung though they have lots of features. SONY is simply over-priced for almost the same PQ. After checking out all the showrooms, I felt the Panasonic S10 had the best PQ amongst all.

    Congrats Ronnie for your purchase! No doubt its sound would be good as it is Jazz series. I am not worried about sound much as I will be connecting a 5.1 home theatre system. Even the VIERA S10 sports a IPS panel... somehow I feel the Pannys have PQ a cut above the rest.

    How is your experience so far? Did you check out any HD movie?

    Brought my LG 42LD460 20 days back. Picture quality is very good, sound is ok but it doesnt matter since i connect my home theatre. Full HD movies PQ is awesome.

    Got it for Rs 45K from snehanjali, but had to bargain a little bit.
    51K - Vijay sales
    55K - Croma, after bargain 49K
    52K - Local electronic store
