      Personally speaking, I'm looking at the 37" LE37C680. Although it is not a 3D TV, it has Samsung's Internet@TV features.

      The PS50C680 doesn't have this, but the LE46C750 does.

      Many others would go for the plasma in the 50". Plasma is meant to be better with fast moving images (i.e. action films, footy) and more realistic on the colours.

      I would strongly suggest that you take a look at Samsung's site, and look at their comparison chart between the two you are looking at.

      Next I would suggest that you pop into a shop that has both on display and spend a few minutes looking at both of them.

      Finally, search the web for the best price. I found at least 100 off without looking very hard at an alternative high street retailer.

      I would go with the LCD, Don't pay for that 80 lead though!!!

      Have a look at this: Samsung LE46C750 46-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p 200Hz: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

      The same TV for 900. That's a saving of nearly 300

      They also do a HDMI cable for around 4

      The faster response of plasma screens is supposed to give less 'ghost' images on 3D.

      also be very careful when choosing which retailer you buy from.

      An awful lot of the cheaper prices quoted may be from "grey" market countries where the retailer is importing from Poland, India etc and the reason why they are cheaper is that they have a worse build quality.

      Comet is one shop who seems to have an awful lot of these as well.

      Easy answer: Don't buy it, don't buy 3D - it waste of money!
