    why?

    Its between this and the Panasonic. This has more hdmi inputs but all the reviews i have read say that the screen doesnt live up to the greatness of panasonic plasmas. Also, it comes with no glasses.

    This type of comment is daft... If you have a preference for LCD then just don't vote. my 6 year old LG 50" plasma still looks fantastic. When I do come to replace it I would like to consider all options, including another plasma, but I won't be able to find a good deal as some numpty has voted a product cold not because of the price but because they don't like the format of the product.

    If a car deal came on here for a diesel, would you vote 'cold' because it's not a petrol engine!?

    Plasma - best image, no doubt. Not too hot on LG though.

    both formats have there pros and cons but for the best natural picture or if you watch a lot of sports or 3d I'd go plasma everytime because of the better refresh rates. as for this deal a 50 inch full hd 3D TV from a good brand at this price = Hot from me

    The downside to this TV is that the 3D is active so you have to buy the active glasses which are a lot more expensive than the passive technology glasses that can be bought for peanuts.

    People have reported that from experience they get headache from the glasses on the active technology and the passive doesn't appear to give you this.

    I feel that with the TV's on the market today, most manufacturers are moving to passive technology just like what the cinema uses.

    The TV is a good price for what it is but you have to factor in the price of active glasses on top.

    I feel that anyone looking to buy the LG 50PM760T should seriously consider the LG LM620T or the LG LM640T range of these as these use the passive technology.

    Hope this helps :)

    I am voting this hot purely to balance out the usual die-hards who have never owned a plasma and generally like to rubbish anything that they don't own or have any experience of. All the myths about screen-burn, power consumption blah..blah..are untrue and I have owned one for the last 5 years; it has good contrast even on SD content and no motion blur or lag for gaming.

    I am shopping around for a new one, as I need the Freeview HD, 3D and a few other features to play with. I am hoping that with the upcoming release of the Panny 2013 line-up - which is usually around Feb/Mar. the older versions will drop in price.

    What are the myths of plasma power consumption? I've a 50" samsung plasma and love it but definitely uses a lot of power! (On the plus side it also heats up the front room...)
    rtbsghgfh
    Oh and it also suffers from (temporary - so there may be a different word for it) screen burn.

    Would vote hot but should be cheaper as I paid this 4 years ago for mine, ok it has 3D but should be cheaper by now surely?

    My Dad (over 70) upgraded from a Panasonic 42" PZ80 plasma to this a couple of months ago. Picture quality is great on both sets. the 3D works well with the active glasses which keep popping up on Argos at £29.99 (# 909/4354).

    For a decent family telly you can't go wrong with this one, keeps the room warm as well :-)

    Ive had a LG 50 inch 3D tv for 2 years, pictures fantastic, everyone I spoke to (retailers & forums) when buying this advised me that for any TV over 40 inches to go for a plasma as the refresh rate is much faster, what you need for a screen of this size & as for LG, I dropped the remote & broke it, rang them up & said it had stopped working & they sent me a free replacement within 3 days, excellent customer service

    Such a helpful comment. Apart from not knowing how to spell know, you clearly know nothing about debating a point.

    My plasma TV uses 400w. My new LG 42" 3D LED TV uses 52w. That's a big difference in running costs.

    Same, only had one product (a RAM module about 10 years ago) from "Lucky Goldstar" aka LG and it didn't work at all.

    Korean companies tend to have lower quality control compared to Japanese brands (see failure rates of Sony/Panasonic/Pioneer vs LG/Samsung). Also, the various people I know with Sony TVs have never had a problem, but everybody I know that has had a Samsung TV have either had issues with the speakers failing, or dead pixels. From what I have heard, Sony consider ANY dead pixels a failure, whereas Samsung consider 3 or more dead pixels to be a failure (although this may have changed now). Absolutely appalling IMHO - why should consumers pay full price for a brand new TV that is already partly-broken?

    These are not myths but Plasma technology has improved a lot so most of the downsides to the technology are no longer a factor.

    He didn't buy an LED TV. Every TV that is sold as "LED" is actually LCD with LED back-lighting which is completely different from an LED TV.

    Also, has he played about with the settings for refresh rates and picture smoothing (I think LG call it TruMotion)?
