50B450 = 55 to 57k.
Best amoung the lot.

My friend got the 40B450 + DVD player for 48k during diwali. That price is no more valid.

I'm going ahead with LG 42PQ70 - 39K (with exchange). With the remaining money get yourself a WDTV + a 500 GB WD portable drive. You won't need your HTPC and the playback capabilities are superb in the WDTV.

Hey Kneo, When you are getting the WDTV, Please go for the samsung B450 plasma instead. It has better black levels.

Look at Samsung B530/550.
A Samsung in the same price range as Sony is always better than the sony at least in indian context.

LG LCDs will look bad in dark surroundings (night) due to poor black levels. You won't be exposed to such surroundings in show room auditions. Pick it at your own risk. If you are used to watching movies at night, just avoid them. They look much better in better light.
