Considering buying $2999 Hyundai 42" Plasma TV (B&B/Leemings).

Trouble is they have 45 TVs running off one aerial and use $10 RCA leads to supply the video to each unit, so the pic on all the display units looks TERRIBLE...

I agree - its hard to tell how good the picture really is in a shop. I took a punt and recently purchased a Samsung PS42D4SKX plasma from B&B.

I am not really that happy with it. There is to much pink/red which shows up really badly on faces, etc. I contacted Samsung and they told me to contact a service agent - which I will do. So, hopefully its not normal and it can be fixed.

Well it was actually a good deal at the time. The Plasma was $5000.00 but it came with (special promotion) a Samsung MiniDV camera and accessory pack (spare battery, tapes, case, etc). All up with accessories the camera retailed for $1499.00. So, the way I look at it the Plasma cost me $3500.00.
