My father-in-law is looking for a new TV. He doesn't want anything more than a 42" model, and doesn't need extra features like networking or USB. He does have MySky HDi, but I don't know if he has any HD content. He only has a DVD player (couple of years old) and an old VCR, and doesn't have any home theatre components.
He's seen a Samsung that he liked - UA40C6200. It's a 40" LED unit. I've tried to look up reviews online, but can't really find anything positive or negative about it. Other than the price - $1448 is the cheapest on Pricespy, and he's looking at paying $1699.
I bought a Panasonic Plasma which I'm really enjoying, so I looked at a smaller version of that. The TH-P42U20Z seems to be a good compromise - right size, full HD, good brand, no extraneous features. And better yet, the price is only $963 shipped from Bond and Bond.
What do others think of these two models? Which would you choose in this situation? Or would you recommend something else?
