I’m in the market for a new flat screen TV, but I’m not really up with the play in terms of LCD vs plasma, full HD vs HD ready, which brand to choose, etc etc.
I’m looking for a 40 inch screen (or above), and have a budget of around $2000 (although, could probably go higher if needed).
I’ve just had a look at Bond and Bond’s website and see that they have a full HD 40" V series Bravia for $2791 (http://www.bondandbond.co.nz/audiotv/tv/lcd-tvs/sony-kdl40v4000-40-full-hd-v-series-bravia-lcd-idtv/prod99162.html).
However, they also have a 40" V series on sale for $1499 at the moment (http://www.bondandbond.co.nz/audiotv/tv/lcd-tvs/sony-klv40v300a-40-bravia-v-lcd-television/prod97174.html) which seems to be an ‘HD ready’ model.
Is Sony Bravia the way to go? Is it really worth an extra $1300 for the full HD model?
We currently have TelstraClear’s cable TV service, and it will mainly be used for watching sport (if that makes any difference). I know that TelstraClear does not offer HD at the moment (but I assume they will in future?)
Any advice would be much appreciated. Cheers.
