    I've got Gas2100's old C510. Absolutely amazing. Drops off my lap and hits the deck twice daily. Solid as a rock.

    C510 was my mums old phone now she has a similar level Nokia, the C510 reminded me of the old K series but not as chunky.
    Sony was the shit back in the day now i wouldn't touch their android phones with a bargepole.

    All my old phones where Sony, i used to have a weird spin phone walkman series.

    I agree Sony TVs are nice but there are other just as good manufacturers. Their headphones suck and the Walkmans are nice but overpriced.

    Their Camcorders always are just behind Panasonics because i was going to buy a Panasonic SD60 at one point but never did.

    i have the sony because i got a really good deal on it (something like £180 and that was last year when most other brand name 32" were around £300)

    the picture quality, is good but not the best, the reason i like it is because unlike my panasonic, i've i turn on a device connected by HDMI, the TV will turn on at the same time (opposite way round as well, i can turn on devices by selecting them as my input) and they also turn off as well, the remote will also let me control things connected to it without needing another remote

    i also like the menu and how many options they let you play with, it's got 100's of things to adjust

    My LG 4000LH was £320 including delivery, that was 2 years ago and its 37inches. Nothing special but it does the job the colours are nice if the blacks are just average but back then that was always the case, Plasma for blacks, LCD for colours/whites.

    My brother just got a fancy Panasonic Plasma TV for his place, absolute quality in all regards. They arnt as big bulky and heavy as they used to be Plasma TVs.

    Actually Plasma's are also good for white's, in fact the most dramatic ways plasma's outperform LCD's is in scenes where there's something very bright on a back background

    all in all the reason it's 32" is because i sit less then 2m away from it, so anything bigger wouldn't actually work very well for me

    it's an excellent TV, however it does have some problems with fast moving objects

    Rubbish Plasma is better for deep blacks, thats why people play blade runner as a test DVD on plasma tvs.

    EDIT: My tv has that 100hz option and real cinema but ive never seen a difference with it enabled.

    it's good for both, so long as your not using dodgy picture settings you can have no problem with either, no backlight = good blacks, but at the same time you can have it doing whites no problem

    EDIT:The 100Hz option only blurs the frames together and shows you an average of them, it's supposed to stop ghosting in LCD's, plasma's have no need as there's no noticeable response time anyway

    I didn't say Plasma was shit for whites i just said it wasn't as good, LED backlit tvs are the best for whites.

    EDIT: Well the 100hz is supposed to smooth out motion but i didnt really see a difference.

    LED backlights aren't as good for color though, and where did you get LCD's for color anyway, plasma's are capable of showing many times the colors of an LCD

    IF we are getting pedantic, real true RGB LED can offer a better colour accuracy. I thought that LCD was always good for bright colours where as Plasma was for blacks. Well if someone else feels free to tell me otherwise.

    i think it's all being pedantic anyway, i've seen so many LCD's and plasma's i now think the quality's more down to the individual display then the type or anything, and the set up is also very important, i was making my point from a purely technical point of view

    only LED display we have is on a laptop and it's a nice display but for some reason the color is a really coldish blue compared to the traditional LCD's i have

    IMO any display is fine for any use, as long as you take user error out of the equation and have it set up properly. And I mean properly. Every new TV I get I spend at least 45 minutes sorting out the colour, trying all different films and games during the day, then again at night. I'll end up with 2 sets of settings for my TV, one for day and one for night.

    I just had a big razz. Was fun. I've been ram-raiding :p
    Got a couple of mates local to me so I've joined their group.
