ya tech moves really fast when i checked out the hd led vs hd lcd comparo it was a year ago,so as expected led tvs will always keep advancing as i feel its not a big task.
Have you checked out the Mitsubishi tv's they are huge,a friends friend has got it imported here. Do you get those in Aus?

You save good amount of money or seems worth only when you are looking to buy tvs that cost above 1.2 lakhs here,I dont think its worth to go there for a small saving cos of transport etc ,but nothing against holidaying.

Hi There

IMHO if you are looking for a 42" in the price band of 40-45K than i would advise you to go for Plasma TV as you will not get LCD or LED in that price (even if you get one that LCD/LED would be a basic model).

Now What to choose in Plasma:

1.) I would suggest you to go for Panasonic Plasma instead of going for any other brand. I own one i.e. V20 series 42" from last one year or so and iam pretty much impressed with the Picture Quality of the TV. Recently i have installed HD set top box from Dish TV and the Picture is so good that yoiu can see the root of the hairs of a person. This is a Full HD TV i.e. 1080p and colours are natural with fantastic black colour deapth.
Go for Full HD Plasma TV. Dont be fussy about 3D Plasma and all.

you sure will get tvs cheap there but you lose on warranty.

last when my friend checked in a sony cx420 32" was available for 7k and a samsung 40d550 was available for 22k approx[frustration]

My dad bought the international model when he was in transit thru Bangkok ( after visiting us in Australia) , he took one 32" LCD Sony (may be LED ) cant remember it was 14000 Bahts and you dont have to pay a lot custom on it.
for 40" and above Custom/Luxury tax applies .

Ya customs here in India is like a lottery,almost a year ago a friend got a body kit/alloys set for his Suv,got charged a bomb(you can put it in lakhs),so for small tvs not worth the headache.
The govt tries not to loose much to foreign trade,even if it does,it charges alot of tax(to discourage us),our car import duties are proof of that.
