Please don't vote cold without explanation. Plasmas typically have better pictures than LCDs, deeper blacks, and scale SD (ie normal TV) far better, they have a 100-,000-60,000 hour life span in case you were worried. This model has better sound than the more basic PQ3000. It is 1080i and not 1080p but currently only Blu-ray takes advantage of 1080p and even PS3 don't really make full use of it. Normal TV, DVDs, most games are all better on a 720p set like this than a similar 1080p set

(I'd look out voucher deals as there is usually some, not sure if the £70 off when you spend over £700 is on but if it is best to find something you want for another £45)

DETAILS:

The stylish high-gloss black LG 50PQ6000 50" HD Ready Plasma TV uses 600Hz Sub-field Driving technology to render a picture with fantastic clarity and minimal blur. It also features a stunning 2,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, and 16-bit RGB colour depth, to deliver a picture with striking realism and deep, rich tones and colours.

Other attributes of the LG 50PQ6000 50" HD Ready Plasma TV include three HDMI connectors (for connection to High Definition devices such as HD camcorders, Blu-ray players, and game consoles), the Intelligent Sensor II (which adapts output according to surrounding light for optimum viewing and power saving), and 24p Real Cinema mode - which allows you to enjoy judder-free movies using HD-DVD or Blu-ray Discs.

In addition to its HDMI connectivity, the LG 50PQ6000 HD Ready TV also includes a VGA (D-sub 15pin) input, so you can use this luxury big-screen television as a PC display! On top of that, a USB 2.0 port allows easy connection with your existing digital devices, including support for jpeg photos, mp3 music files, and DivX SD movie files.

A Freeview tuner is also incorporated into the LG 50PQ6000, which provides you with a vast range of television channels to choose from, including all of your former BBC and ITV favourites. You'll also be able to access a diverse range of digital radio stations.

The 50PQ6000 Plasma TV also boasts a powerful Invisible Speaker system (10W + 10W) with SRS TruSurround XT sound technology.

If you're looking to ramp up the potential of your home entertainment set-up, the LG 50PQ6000 50" HD Ready Plasma TV may well be the ideal answer!

2,000000:1 contrast ratio 600hz Built-in digital TV tuner 3x HDMI, 2x SCART, 1x Component, 1x PC Dual XD Engine SRS TruSurround XT Wall Mountable Available in 42" On Screen Display 2 No of Scarts

I grabbed the 50pq3000 a while back an really love it, the difference between my lower spec 3000 and this 6000 is only that the 6000 can play divx movies played from a usb stick or hd.

You can easily enable this feature in the 3000 with a few hidden clicks.

I would recommend looking at the 50pg3000 for £699, sure it costs more, but you get free delivery and a 5 year warranty.

The PQ6000 also has better sound mate. I wouldnt argue too much against the John Lewis deal as you get 5years warranty but then again the majority of TV faults show themselves within 1 year

Wow cant believe this is so Cold, its the best deal on this model and the best deal on a 50 inch LG plasma out there

I agree, I think its hot.

Don't take it personal, I don't think a lot of users vote informatively. For example, there is a "deal" about -removed not to hurt peoples feelings-, the deal is rubbish, misinformed, inaccurate and lacking common sense or even two seconds of googling (which would have been more accurate). But it is marked as hot because users have perceived the effort of the author was worth it, over it being any use or factual. -- it's just the way it works here it seems...
#5
"Please don't vote cold without explanation."

I reckon having that as your 1st line will get you a lot of cold votes (although I have to agree - all votes should include a reason!).

I personally think that the deal is OK ( as I would want 1080p despite any arguments!) but it does seem to be a stonker of a TV!

voted hot in stead of warm - since I got a decent TV deal off of here last year and I want to keep people posting them!

I dont agree with the statement that 1080p is not used fully by the ps3 and/or blu ray. I have a 1080p tv and a ps3 and can say that it is phenomenal with it. Way better than 720p. It naturally would be as its more pixels. If a film/game is 1080p compatible then it is 1080p.
Dont get me wrong, this is still a good deal though! Just feel like its being a little mis-sold by making such statments.
#17
It is 1080i and not 1080p but currently only Blu-ray takes advantage of 1080p and even PS3 don't really make full use of it. Normal TV, DVDs, most games are all better on a 720p set like this than a similar 1080p set

You mean it accepts 1080i not that it is 1080i
It's not even 720P
1280x720 = 720P

This set is 1365 x 768

So even if the games your playing are 720P there's still going to be a certain amount of scaling involved.
Also there is quite a list of PS3 games that are 1080P and it's getting bigger all the time.

I didn't vote either way
But it's not something I would buy if I was looking for a new TV.

Good find.
Hot, looking for a tv and now have one more to choose from now.

Other choices i was looking at...

I've got the 50ps3000 and it cost nearly a hundred quid more than this a month ago. Very happy with the quality, currently running off Sky HD and an Egreat M34A Networked Media Tank.

Took me ages to find it again! But here goes, it is a cut and paste from another forum, so spelling mistakes and poor english are not mine!

---------------------
Hi mates! I'm new here. I have been using 42PQ3000 Plasma for one week
and i noticed that PQ3000 is capable of playing SD Divx movies from
USB just like PQ6000 with an easy change in settings. All you need to
do is ;
Hold down to the OK button at the same time both at Remote controller
and at TV. In 5 seconds a password screen will come, type "0000" by
remote control and hold OK button. Now you should see a screen, enter
tool options menu , then change Media Player setting to EMM ( i don't
remember the exact name, but there are only 2 choices). Exit the menu
and restart your TV. " Now you got a PQ6000 .. I watched 3 Divx
already and it has no problem at playing Divx movies.. I suggest you
not to change any other setting in this menu.. Have fun watching

Agreed. I hate it when people say a TV is 1080i. Its not even a proper mode and just an interlaced signal the TV can accept. They should just say 720p. And on the resolution, I'm surprised its not 1024x768 like a lot of plasmas. For some reason the resolution on plasmas is always wierd, and not the standard 720p res.

Even though a lot of 360/PS3 games may say 720p / 1080p on the box a lot of games are already upscaled from their native resolution in the first place, even to reach just a 720p resolution (COD4 is only 600p, for example). To then reach 1080p the game is upscaled even further. Still, the upscaling is very well done on games consoles, and on my 1080p LCD TV games still appear crisp at 1080p on the 360.

£50 extra for the PS3000 is pretty tempting, Sky HD probably looks as good on either, none HD channels would look better on this set. But Blu Ray will look better on the PS3000 and if you go for LoveFilms 3months Free offer then you can get free BLuRays for 3months. 12feet away you might not see that much difference on bluray Im not sure. This set may have better sound than the PS3000

Yeah, this one PQ6000 is arguably the highest specced of the 3 (for the majortiy of folk. Remember it's not about counting pixels!) and yet paradoxically the cheapest.
However the 5 year warranty by John Lewis is a very desired thing.

Oh, if I could get this wih a similar warranty.
Anyone have experience of Dixon's coverplan?

Have heard mixed reviews but mostly bad. Apparently it's not a real warranty as such and is just a "service plan"
banned#30
I bought mine from Richersounds, great quality definatly a bargain, i think Lcd is better as it has a longer life then a plasma tv so i have heard.
#31
Voted cold. Not full HD. I bought a FullHD 46" Samsung TV for the same money over a year ago so not really much of a deal a year on. Also Plasma uses 3 times the electric and the don't last as long.
#32
Whats the £70 off £700 discount code?
#33
I bought the 50PS6000 for £842 about 2 months ago and I'm very happy with it. It looks great and the picture is excellent (and no more purple snakes like on my old Panasonic!). The ability to watch downloaded content directly off a memory stick is very useful indeed. Plus I've seen no image retention which had been highlighted as a potential issue.

The power usage is pretty efficient and all this stuff about screen life for Lcd vs plasma is a complete red herring, if you watched it for 6 hours a day it will last over 60years. I'd be really surprised if I'm still watching it in 62 years time!
