"The net result of all this is a 50in 2D picture that's hugely engaging ***in either 2D or 3D mode***"

Copy and paste from the P50GT30 review by any chance??

I'd really like to see a spec list at the end of these reviews like your camera reviews etc.

I know the first page goes into detail over the specs but it's always good to have things laid out in a scan-able table format too.

The specs should usually be available in the "Specs" tab at the top of the review, in a nice quick-to-read table.

I Asked Jeeves and he gave me this link:

Hope this helps!

Is it really too difficult to include input lag results for all inputs? I find myself drifting from TR for TV reviews to other sites like hdtvtest and avforums as they have this crucial info.

With reference to John McLean's comment, John meant to write 'in either standard def or HD mode'. That is fixed now.

Don Kanonjii - I've looked at recent reviews on both the sites you mention in your post, and could find no mention of multiple input lag measurements for different inputs - or different picture presets, come to that. They seem to do as we do, which is give a single input lag figure. Feel free to point me towards a particular review that does what you suggest, and we'll certainly consider if it's something we feel we can take into our reviews without making them start to get spec heavy.

I add that last qualification because TrustedReviews is quite deliberately different to the other sites you mention. While we are technophiles ourselves like yourself, we want to reach a majority of people out there who would be baffled by the sort of measurement-filled, graph-heavy, jargon-laden reviews those other sites carry. This is certainly not to denigrate the quality of those reviews; far from it. I'm merely pointing out that we at Trusted work to a 1500-word limit for our reviews in order to make sure that they're digestible and approachable for everyone, not just hardcore enthusiasts and to enable us to cover more products.

Hi. I know this is looking at a comparison between a plasma and LED, but I wondered what your thoughts might be in making a selection between the Panasonic TX-P42G30 (given an overall 9/10 rating) and Toshiba 40TL868 (given an overall 8/10 rating)? Current prices show a price difference of approximately 㿨 with the Tosh being the cheaper, though I'm leaning towards the Panasonic at the moment. Your thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.
