    I think I've been spending too much time on avforums. I've been completely certain about getting the Philips 42PFL8404 and the Sony 40W5500 respectively and each time comments and reviews on avforums have made me unsure.

    I don't suppose anyone knows of a specialist TV shop in Brussels :) That way I could at least see them properly calibrated. The only places I know here are like mediamarkt and fnac, I doubt they try to get their show models to industry display standards.

    Bah, price matching over here apparently often doesn't include online prices, rather disappointing.

    Anyone got opinions on getting an extended warranty? They normally have 2 years here. For the full 5 I could be looking at 150, quite hefty.

    I have a 40W5500. It's about as good an LCD you can get without upgrading up to a Samsung LED. Great for gaming and films. You'll want better sound output though - the speakers are acceptable, but only just.
