32inch **PLASMA** TV LG 32PG6000 £439.00

As far as I am aware this is the only 32" PLASMA on the market. Not all of us want a TV that dominates the room. Plasma kicks LCD's ass for black depth and movement amongst other things.

Here's the blurb:
LG has launched what it claims is the first mainstream production 32in plasma TV with the 32PG6000. Well, it's certainly the only one you'll get in the UK.
LG launched a non-HD 32in plasma last year but, frankly, it wasn't all that interesting for the price. Plasma technology tends to occupy the 40in+ marketplace due to the cost of producing the panels but, LG's new 32in model brings some of plasma's advantages over LCD [deeper blacks, smoother playback of fast-motion video like sports] to the mainstream TV sector. It's a good looking box with a frameless design thanks to 'Single Layer' technology that uses a single sheet of glass. It's a 720p TV [1024 x 720 pixels] with a generous 4 HDMI v1.3 inputs and 100Hz picture processing.
HDMI v1.3 supports 30-bit, 36-bit and 48-bit (RGB or YCbCr) colour depths which does away with on-screen colour banding, supports four times more shades of grey and offers increased contrast. In fact, contrast for the 32PG6000 is rated at 30,000:1.
In addition to cracking pictures, LG hired in audio guru, Mark Levinson, to tune the 'invisible speakers'. The 2 x 10W speakers are placed behind the bezel with 2 bass downfirers and the sound resonates around the TV edge to create a wider sound field.

You can watch a video here which I'll put a link to in the reply.

Very good set. If you want a smaller screen, you won't have may alternatives apart from the usual LCD suspects.

Would like to get this for the bedroom but I'm not sure about coping with the ire from SWMBO;-)

Another Plasma myth. :roll:

Modern Plasma's now use virtually the same as a modern LCD.

Jeez, in the scheme of things, who cares?

Wait until China and India start switching on their newly affordable fridges and air conditioners and then we'll find the planet is well and truly fecked.

In the meantime, a few million plasma screens are not gonna make too much difference:whistling:

Actually it ain't a myth!

Plasma's have done well to bring down the power consumption levels but they aren't the same across the whole board as you appear to be making out!

The LG 32PG6000 (plasma in this thread) consumes 270w, whereas the 32" LCD equivalent 32LG6000, consumes 160w.

LCD whether you want to realise it or not will save you far more in electricity costs than a Plasma will!

110 watts - 8p an hour versus a crapp*y picture - no contest:p

And people buy HDTV's for their energy saving potential over picture quality don't they ;-)

You also need to remember Plasma power usage isn't a constant figure like LCD with it's always on backlight. Plasma power usage will vary depending on the brightness of image being displayed/contrast level etc.. that 270w max figure is likely to be substantially lower in actual use.

Nice TV aesthetically but LG Plasmas are notoriously known for their severe image retention and are also more prone to screenburn than Panasonic Viera Plasma's and the premium priced Pioneers.

Mine is 10p.

Say you watch the tv for 8 hours a day (you, your other half + kids or whatever). That's 80p. £5.60 for the week. Over the course of a year, that's anything from £100 - £300 added onto your electricity bill depending on what you choose to watch!

Only if you have plasma brightness and contrast turned up 100% showing a bright white screen. As said before Plasma power usage varies dependant on display output and will often be far lower than max W stated.

the resolution on this set won't display 720p to it's full quality - let alone 1080i or 1080p signals.
i thought sets with this resolution had been left behind in 2006.

Yes same resolution as all other 720p Plasma's including the likes of Panasonic TH42PX80 and we know how terrible that model is :roll:

It's a 720p TV. Forget the specs have a look at the picture quality against ANY 32" LCD.

I think people who think like this should start reading, after taking in considerable information about the conversion they wish to join in on, they can then make an informed answer.

RESOLUTION DOES NOT EQUAL PICTURE QUALITY!

1080i IS WORSE THAN 720p!

HDTV STANDARD ONLY REQUIRES 720 LINES OF VERTICAL RESOLUTION!

Sorry the the capitals and slight sarcasm, but I'm fed up of people who know nothing putting others off without being informed themselves.

*** munches more popcorn ***

oh so 1080i is worse than 720p..... Why do manufacturers even bother including it? ahh i see its to lure poor saps into thinking that they should use 1080i when their tv can display 720p so that they watch an inferior picture. cos thats what they want you to see. an inferior picture i guess. i stupidly thought the resultant quality of p/i (that's an 'over' there) was source+content dependant. thank you for educating me.......

maybe ill just believe my own eyes.....

How do you know its a very good tv? Have you got this TV?
I am from AVForums, and I had an LG Plasma. I didnt believe people and said that they were snobs...but unfortunately they were right. It suffered from red sparkles badly.
And the funny thing.. I went to California this month. Went to 2 hotels with a plasma in the room. Both were LG..and both were plagued with red and green sparkles.

I wouldnt buy an LG myself...and if I did..it would HAVE to have extended warranty.

I've got 2 LGs, no problems at all.

If you are an AV Forums member you'll know that people have issues with Pannys, Samsungs, Sonys and even the sainted Kuro so reports of issues with LGs is not front page news. An awful lot of issues are user-related in any event so caveat emptor regarding forum reviews and opinions - yours and mine included:-D

Nevertheless, this is a very good TV - no question!

I'd like the 42" version of this set but really can't justify replacing my current 42" set, which is giving really great pictures from Sky and SD-DVD. The 50" set I have is too good to replace as well. HD-DVD, PS3, XBOX360 and a PC feed all handled really well.

I might just get the 32" for the bedroom:thumbsup:
#24
C'mon, guys! Let's put the strife aside for a moment, please, to guide a 'newbie' to all this.

I'm rather interested in this product but, as I receive ONLY a satellite tx. presently via BSkyB ( no terrestrial ), and expect to say 'Bye, bye!' to my Sky subscription within a day or two, but keeping the box and dish, am wondering about which way to jump in respect of Freeview options.
What will I need? What will I get? What might I be disappointed about?

I note that the LG brochure suggests that a USB port is available for the 32" PG6000, shown clearly in the diagram-rear, while the list of components/services suggests otherwise. Which is right?

I note the Deal Price shown above differs from the mentioned company's price. Any ways to reduce that - via 'cashback' sites, perhaps?

:?

Steve650 - I hope this helps with the ongoing power consumption debate. I have one of these televisions and out of interest I logged the power used over 5 hours viewing one evening at 0.43 kW. The power used varies from a black screen at 49W to a bright white screen at 240W, and is usually around 120W. The picture quality is superb and the sound is good enough for me. It seems that my plasma screen TV is costing less to run than the equivalent size LCD, which is a bit of a surprise!
