Search through the forums.. You have the answer.
B450 is costlier than X10 in US/UK.
I have the 42" and it is very good.

If you are getting the panasonic, get the X10 instead. Someone else has got it for 74k.

You won't get a definite answer here.
For 42", both are neck to neck as they cost same.

For 50", IMO, there is no contest. X10 is not worth 22k more than B450 (period). And as far as I know there is only one owner who has a 50" X10 and he is happy. There are many happy B450 owners here.

What is the availability of this 50" plasma in new delhi/ ncr? I guess it must be 720p and not 1080p?
What is the cheapest 1080p plasma (or even lcd) at 50" screen size?

Cheapest 1080p plasma is Samsung B550 at 70k.
This is discontinued. A 2010 model in 5 series could be introduced at the same price.
Next is panasonic S10 at 1.1 L.

LCDs typically come in 46" and 55".
46" cost 90k - 1L. 55" is way too costly.

2010 should see 50 +(52 and 5 inchers) LCDs become more affordable and fall more within the 1.5 lakh range. Currently there are a couple of 50 inch+ models which fall within this bracket. As far as plasmas are concerned it is a bit more difficult to predict as it depends upon what models would end up here

hi,
i am currently using the panasonic 50c10 and the performance is pretty good.although its not full hd but it still performs good while connected thru a hdmi cable.i think 70k is a bit steep,where did u check the price? i bought it from Resonance audio in delhi and i got it for 65k only.check out with them.they are great guys to deal with.

I think it will be a good idea to get a 1080p for a size like 50". Otherwise you will not be able to get the full benefit of Blu-Ray and HD videos.

Go for b450 eyes closed... I have both 50" x10 and b450 in my house... I vil anytime prefer b450 over x10... x10 does't worth the additional 20+k you pay...

Wow.. Great..
You are the right person for my questions then..


What do you think about the PQ in absolute terms?
Ie, If both costs same which is better?

It will help people decide between B450 and X10 in 42" where they cost almost the same.

It is almost established that for 50", B450 is the best VFM you can get your hands on at the moment.

Hi BLASTO, Iam not a good reviewer as you ;) But i feel like the PQ of b450 is slightly better than X10... The 1ly problem with b450 is the temporary IR... 2day after tuning channels, i noticed the menu IR for few minutes(watched it very closely) in my b450 :(. But iam very much satisfied with b450 over x10 :) If both waz offered to me at same price, i would go with b450 with careful usage in first few months ;).

Edit : Blasto, can you tel me how to enter service menu of b450 to check the hours of usage?
