Look for Samsung 50C450 also alongside of the LGs. It costs around the same (~55k) and is mostly on display in Bajaj Punjakutta. Compare them on reflection and IR fronts before picking one. The USB playback capability of C450 is also good and it plays HD mkvs. If you want to take my word, take the C450.

For FHD however, the PK550 is a good competetion to samsung C550 and costs ~8-10k lesser. This will require some effort to zero down. But the above case is a no brainer.

pj 560 is as good as if only sound output is considered..

chk at the electronic store ( excite) metropolitioan mall,banjara hills(same place as istore)

ask for sridhar.. he knows me very well ( very close) tell him aman..

pk550 for 61.. pick it up.. rest go an check there .. guy is very responsive and reliable in terms of service..

we have picked up (me n my frndz through me) electronic above 10 L from him since an year.. he will give you a good deal...

also chk at bajaj electronic kukatpally..

leaving Full HD for better sound is a good trade off imho.(since you dont plan to buy H.T system)

pj 560 has got an edge over others in sound however rest are way ahead in terms of PQ.

also rest of the two models have enough sound to watch tv and movies yes pj560 will be good but not like any low end HT from any company.. even a chinese make 5.1 for 5k will outperform pj560 ..

what you can do it.. get a either pk550 and add 2.1 edifier to it for 2.2 k and you are good and far ahead of pj560..

go for PQ and add speakers that way you will have both.. best of sound and best of PQ

Don't tilt the scales just for the sake of free hard disc. Buy the best TV (what looks good to your eyes). Take a couple of DVDs with you, ask him to play TV (make sure he has not connected the TV using HDMI.. when you connet TV using your set top box quality will slightly be lessers compared to the store where they will feed good quality feed and use a HDMI splitter to feed to all TVs).

Forget the freebies.

720P set will give you better PQ for DTH and SD movies (DVDs and all)...
As you are saying you wont be watching fullHD much..then 720p set suits you better...

C450 is cheaper than LGPK550.. why are not able to accommodate hdd in your budget?.. you will save about 6K and buy even a 1 TB usb HDD..

C450 gives you HD playback via USB. Not sure about PK550. (ask the owners)

For 60k, You can get C450 (with free airtel DTH) + 320GB HDD + Good 2.1 external sound system. Best of all worlds.


Off Topic:

@Alok, looks like you too are eyeing of the 1TB disk available for 5.8k. Same boat!. :) How is Toshiba in HDD department? The Freeagent Goflex is available for 6k otherwise.

Both the offers are excellent if you count the free gift as well..
For any purchase over 5K.. iBall headset or 2GB pen drive.. Not sure if those coupons are still valid..

Currently I have
1 hitachi 80 GB (since 5 years),
1 seagate 500GB (1 year)
3 WDs (250GB since 3 years, 320GB since 2 years and 1 TB since 6 months)..

No issues till now with any of these.. ..I trust WD USB HDDs blindly..

I have never used Toshiba HDDs..So somebody who has some experience with Toshiba can comment better..

between Toshiba (5.8K) and Seagate Freeagent (6K), I would pick seagate because getting is serviced/replaced will be easier.. I am ready to pay 200 extra for my preciousssssssss data..

Any plans for group purchase?. Guys in NCR bought 42x20D for 32.5k while kukatpally panasonic showroom is not willing to budge from 40k (over phone, may comedown by 1-2k if bargained), but nowhere near that mouth watering deal.

Let me know. Am looking for X20D .
