Looking for a new TV and was looking at LG50B650V
But before i buy does anyone else have a better 3D tv in the £500-£800 price region
things that would interest me are smart, at least 3 hdmi (one arc if poss)
prefer passive (cheaper classes and a few kids in the house)

prefer not smaller than 50"

From experience LG tvs have this annoying auto dimming thing that kicks in usually in dark scenes in movies or games it cant be turned off im not the sure if they have rectified this in newer models but its put me off lg id go for a sony or samsung.

Thanks for the answer i will be on the headache pills shortly trying to work this out (and its not the drink either lol)
Each TV I look at has some of the things but none has them all apart from the really expensive ones (yea i know before anyone says)
will go look at the sony/samsung ones now

no auto dimming on mine..... LG are great, their 3d doesnt need some fancy glasses so thats a big plus. either buy LG or sony, both are great for tvs

Yeah is a headache looking for a new tv nowadays best advice i can give is take your time as the right one will turn up in our house we have LG,Samsung and Sony i prefer the Sony for quality but the Samsung has more features and is bigger. Sony also has trouble playing some files from usb where as the samsung doesnt the LG is nice apart from the thing i mentioned.

And now there is 4k but i think i will give that a miss as i am sure by the time it is mainstream the other features on TVs will be upgraded as well so it wont really be futureproofing (word)
back to looking i suppose

I have an LG42" 3D tv and its great, but over the last two years I have only used 3D for 3 dvds ( you need a 3D blu-ray player ) and a bit on sky 3d.. to be truthful its not worth it. buy a 4khd tv instead. I have been told proper Blu-Ray films are 4k so if you have a 4k tv they look great.

thanks the reason i wanted the passive was because with 3 kids the glasses are cheap and i just know the active ones will get broken also 2 of my kids wears glasses and they say passive is better for this

I have two LG's, an old 42" 720p and a 47" 1080p. Both have been great tv's and both my daughter and I have just bought the 50LB650V from Currys. Mine is still in the box and maybe returned but my daughter has hers up and running. You will be lucky to get one in store because at £499.00 it is a lot of tv for the money. Currys were not even taking in-store orders for the tv on Monday. The screen is absolutely amazing and my daughter said comparing it to their Samsung Smart tv the LG app processing is far superior. However there is a downside to what should be a magnificent tv for the money.

In ensuring their application processing is the best available, LG have forgotten about the basic efficient functions of the tv. Mainly the time it takes to boot everything up and how long it takes to change a channel. LG have made a big error here in my opinion. It maybe fine for everyone with a sky or virgin box using their tuners but if you want to have the tv in tv mode then it takes approx. 7 seconds to change the channel. Yes, 7 seconds. Enough time to pop in the kitchen and put the kettle on. This is absolutely ridiculous. My daughter sent me a video of how long it took to change a channel.

Such a shame that a fantastic tv is let down badly by the time to change a channel but this will be fine if you are not using the tv tuner. If you have a sky HD or Virgin, Youview box and want a tv with smart app processing better than anything else you can buy, for the money this is the tv to buy. For me though our tv's tuner is the most used and maybe looking at returning mine tomorrow. Anyone looking at buying one of LG's WEBOS tv's should read the following link. Also have a read of LG's privacy terms and conditions documents before you decide to buy LG. Nobody should have the right to do whatever they like with your personal information.

Thanks is their any other TV apart from the LGs that have passive 3D

If you aren't too picky about it being active 3D then I would recommend the sony W829 - excellent TV - I am using it and love it.

Although its 42" and not 50" as you wanted !

Ended buying it from currys (i know but i wanted it home there and then) and paid £899 could have gone to John lewis for the 5 year guarantee but they had none in-store in my area
impulse buy after searching the net for ages guilty as charged but well pleased especially as getting it delivered would have been a nightmare as nobody at home through the week..
