I am having last minute jitters - going to order a new telly on the 15th Dec and hesitating over the TH42PX70 - as someone at work said that I should look at the Sony KDL40W2000. I can but the Pana for £729 or the Sony for £837.

I read the reviews in What Hifi and realise that both are good quality TV's but has anyone been in the same predicament and if so what did you go for?

I do however need to go somewhere to see both in comparisson, but aware the Sony has now been superseeded so may struggle to find both TV's in the same shop for a direct comparisson.

I have Sky+ but not HD sky, nor do I own (yet) a Blu-Ray player.

Thanks for your help and comments.

Panasonic by a country mile. The plasma will give you better contrast and the black depth will give more natural colours.

No more jitters. You will live long and happily together.

The Panasonic is the better tv by a long long way! Don't be fooled into thinking that, as the Sony set costs more, or because it has a higher resolution it must be better because that just isn't true. LCDs cost more than plasmas to manufacturer but they are nearly always an inferior product. The Sony W2000 is / was a good tv, has a nice bright picture, and can give good results from some HD sources, but it just doesn't come close to the Panny. The Panny is such a superb tv. It performs brilliantly with both standard-def sources and high-def material accepting 1080p which it downscales very well. It has a wonderfully sharp and realistic picture, with a stunning depth to colour. It is a great piece of evidence to demonstrate plasma's inherent superiority over LCD. Also, the Panny will accept 24fps and does a very good job with it, while the Sony will not take a 24fps signal at all. The Sony set is certainly proof of how far LCD has come, but I must repeat it just doesn't come close to the Panasonic.

Panasonic. I ordered the 37" version this weekend from Sound And Vision Online. They had a 42" in their store for £770, including 5 year warranty, if thats any help.
