$699 bucks 42" full HD, free freight (so don't have to deal with those pesky humans), and it's 100hz (a lot of the <$1k models are only 50hz) - that's about best bang-for-buck isn't it? - http://www.jbhifi.com.au/tv-lcd-led-plasma/soniq/42-inch-full-hd-lcd-100hz-tv-sku-58442/

So been checking a few times a week - still seems like the best deal.

There's a few 40-42 inchers around $500-600, but they are 50hz.

Any better deals around or is this the best go?  BTW kebabs I went to Hardly Normals and they don't really have the same model lines - does your thingy still work?

does your thingy still work?

most sales people are oblivious as to what models they have on their own shop floor let alone what competing stores carry... so yes

OK what 42" 100hz LCD you think I can get for <$600 plugged in? Or 37-42" LED for <$700?

It's not a matter if being a tightarse - I just think if that $700 buck deal is a decent telly then I have no need for anything more flash as it will only be properly used a couple times a week.

Couple of times a week ?

Sitting there watching teevee was never my thing, unless it's like 430am and too tired to do anything and can't sleep.

I only really see it being used for video games now and then, and maybe some movies and stif on in the background - which obviously doesn't need mega quality.

( sent from pub #2 on the walk home from the office :D )

A comparison between LCD, LED and Plasma on A Current Affair tonight.....

They call it an expose on which one will die first but should be something for you to look at Ash.

I was at JB's today buying gaming stuff, haven't bought anything for gaming for a decade and almost went for a new TV as well, the LCD's look great, but you need to be a little careful as they play demo DVD's through them that may look a lot better than what you get at home.
