Rate Philips 42PF7220A/37 Vs. Maxent MX50X2, please?

by johnhunter44 / January 21, 2006 12:44 AM PST

My budget allows about 2200-2400 for a tv. I can get the 42" Philips for 1900 and the 50" Maxent for 2400. I watch from 8' away and my room is low light with no back or side light. Are both of these quality tv's? Should I go with the name of Philips and settle for 42" or with the Maxent and get the 50"?

Maxent manufactures plasma tvs.....
by johnhunter44 / January 22, 2006 6:01 AM PST sells both of these brands. Maxent manufactures plasma hd tv's. From what I have learned, they use panasonic glass. Also, by buying from Costco, if it ever fails I can return it for a full refund, including shipping. I questioned this policy until i called costco myself and checked it out and they verified it as true. there is no time limit on returning anything but computer items. On TV's if the Maxent EVER failed, I get my money back, so I am not risking much.
