It should be good. It will be either a A-MVA or IPS panel so i believe...

I found out the hard way with samsungs S-PVA,only choice i have is the c580 37" as the 46" i was downgrading from had A-MVA but the 40" i tried 3-4 weeks ago had S-PVA and there is a huge difference in Pixel response.It was unbearable for me personally so it went back.I'm holding back from all 37" lcds due to reported buzzing problems on all, some worse than others.Its the only way i could 100% get a A-MVA in a samsung tv under 40"

So to the point these should be good enough to use as a monitor :D Being a TV at least....

User feedback would be nice as i would like to know if you have the backlight up to full and go to a site with lots of pictures/bold text and scroll up and down does it ghost when you look closely (within a meter) I'm struggling finding a tv for use as a monitor followed by xbox360/ps3/usb and lastly tv. In that order.

Thanks

great deal

also worth considering, i you want Freeview HD and 5 years warranty!

LD490: http://www.johnlewis.com/231230845/Product.aspx?s_kenid=2b53110c-c0eb-e7a8-bb98-00006cd9e63a&s_kwcid=363468

The ld450 range have VERY good reps as monitors.
Very low lag and they do 4:4:4 (but I have no idea what that is!)

Yep thats a great deal too.It was posted here a few days ago :)

It is however the same tv as the ld450 (processor/design/panel) with added freeview hd so i'm told.
Its different to the samsung c530/c580 where there is a superior processor in the c580 compared to the 2 that can come in the c530.

This tv (ld490 too) is ment to use the mstar processor as well so i was told.The inferior one that can come in the c530.I am unsure most people could even tell or be bothered by it though X) Which is GOOD ! I've got a little addictive looking in to a tv as i keep finding myself being stuck between a couple (_;)

I think its something to do with Pulldown for 24p playback... (I am fairly active in the avforums since i have been searching and i think thats what i've read)

Wow Great Deal.

Would this be suitable for a bedroom TV for myself. Fit in with the PS3?

Where I live gets Freeview HD in Nov 2011, should i get this now and forget Freeview HD?

Thats up to you the JL deal is a great one.... The difference is freeview hd, doesn't require the usb hack to play videos from the usb and has the netcast tv thingy. It's not got a wireless dongle port but you can use homeplug adapters if you really need too.
You said you have a ps3 so the internet thing shouldn't be important and neither the media playback.(Ps3 has great media playback IMO) So it depends if you need any of them. The only thing i don't like about freeview hd is that when your watching 1 of the 4 channels for a while and go back to non hd it's not nice :D

Personally its worth the little extra if your use the added functions enough, i think the same applys to the c530/c580 debate.I personally won't even consider the c530 but i would consider the 450 over the 490 as the insides and outside is the same. (panels,processor and design)

Best of luck hope you choose whats right for you as everyones different

Got the 32ld690 version with 100hz. Good tv but there is a definiite lip sync issue on standard freeview. Anybody else noticed this or is there a fix?

I am a samsung fan but most of their models have S-PVA which just doesn't suit my needs (Tried 40") The pixel response isn't great so causes some sort of ghosting. Had the 46c580 before which had a A-MVA which i loved ! It was too big though so i was let down by the 40" which is when i started looking into it. I have decided to wait for the new samsung range as the 37" is the only other option for me to get a samsung with A-MVA (100%) but the buzzing problems which seem to affect all 37" more some than others has put me off.If i didn't use it mainly as a web browsing monitor i wouldn't be looking for a tv still now oO But the seeing double on the samsung S-PVA panels was just too annoying. (They may not bother others and wouldn't of bothered me if it was only 20-30 mins or i had another monitor/ If it was a laptop)

Damn panel/processor lotterys ! This is a good deal but i have my heart set on something a little bigger.I also want it to match my samsung 5.1 set-up which i brought when i brought the 46"c580 back in october.

So to the point these should be good enough to use as a monitor :D

User feedback would be nice as i would like to know if you have the backlight up to full and go to a site with lots of pictures/bold text and scroll up and down does it ghost when you look closely (within a meter)

cheers even if i didnt understand half of that :p

just one more ques, does it have a headphone jack?
#12
Don't worry i didn't understand it a few weeks ago and i wish i never bothered looking into it.
I can't answer that, my dads pk590 plasma only has the 1 headphone jack.I tried putting some sony 2.1 speakers in it a week or so ago and it wouldn't work.It said dvi/rgb or something like that by the jack. so my guess is it was for pc connection with vga/dvi to hdmi lead.

It should have the red and white cable in so a red and white to 3.5 mm jack should in theory work but i am unsure tbh sorry

I can tell you the samsung c580 has 2 though one for pc one for headphones.Sorry no real help

Does anyone know if this tv would be ok to hang on a stud wall with a wall bracket ?

Full 1080p, Free view HD, Ethernet media streaming and internet tv. Plus a 5 year warranty, Im going for the JL option thats the spec you want well worth the extra £50 for the 5 year warranty freeview HD and network media streaming capability.

Thats the ld490 and i haven't got a clue sorry.When you say live channels ..... why don't you just watch tv. Or are you a license dodger :D
#19
Obviously no it means we wouldn't have to run an aerial cable to it we would get most of the channels we actually watch. Anyway looks like it is catchup only. It's also got Internet radio which is cool. Can't understand why anyone would get the model without the Internet functionality and network streaming for 50 quid less tbh. Not to mention the 5 year warrant and the fact it's jl.

Some don't need it. I am one of those who doesn't.I have my pc in my room so there is no need for me. I don't watch much tv anyway. As for the warranty it depends on what it costs to have it which in this case is nothing when you compare it to amazons price(LD490). Both just under £300 and JL are ment to be as good as amazon with returns ect

Some people can't or don't want to spend the extra £56 on features they don't want/need or won't use.If you were saying this about the samsung c530/c580 i would 100% agree with you as the actual tv has different components to each other with the c580 being superior. This is not the case on the LG ld450/490. SO i will argue now that its simply down to if you want the extras or not. As the actual tv's are the same with a few extra bits.

This is ideal for the spare room, kids room who won't use or don't need the extras. It is also suitable for the main room. If you have a ps3 then you have all the extra features minus the freeview hd.

So for some it will be pointless paying the extra if its not wanted or needed but for you this seems not to be the case .....

Hope you enjoy your ld490 if you've brought one :)

That would mean using internet bandwidth with most likely a poorer picture for no reason .......
If your on unlimited the worse they would do is cap you but some people arn't and have to watch theirs. So they don't get charged per gb over.

Not bad. would be tempting if it had freeview HD though

Been looking for decent 32" TV. This looks tempting although 2 HDMI ports is really not enough. I'd need 3 just for the devices I have now. Can anyone recommend a reasonably price HDMI splitter?
#27
Thing is as well as the internet tv functionality, freeview HD and networked based media player you get a 5 year warranty. You only get a 12 month warranty with this.

If people dont want a 5 year warranty and the considerable extra functionality for £56 fair enough. A decent freeview HD box is still around £100. A decent network based HD media player is around £70. Then you have the internet TV functionality the best bits being Iplayer, Youtube, Internet Radio as well as the usual Facebook, Twitter etc. Thats a hell of a lot of extra functionality for £56.

There is a strong argument the 5 year warranty is worth £50 on its own. But fair play I vote hot as its branded decent reviewed £1080p screen for £244 from a great retailer, I just think the other deal posted is even better for not much extra money.

I have 50gb fibre optic cable unlimited so band width usage and requirements really isnt an issue with regard to iplayer.

I agree for some it will be but others not. Its as simple as that both are good deals in their own right. I personally arn't bothered by extended warranty as tvs are out dated in 2-3 years anyway.I wouldn't pay any extra for one myself but with the JL deal its worth it for free over amazon. I also will only EVER buy from them due to return policys.I learned the hard way dealing with dixons lost on two tvs i tried to return the 2nd the next day and as it been turned on they said no. I lost at least this tv and a bit more in money terms. I wish i knew about backlight bleed ect as i would of got them to change it or tried a lot harder ! Amazon have accepted 2 returns on tvs without questions ! Which is why i will only go to them and JL i heard are as good.

Just enjoy your new tv if you have brought one.I am jealous ! I can't get fibre optic :( I still get good speed for normal broadband as the BT exchange is about 200m down the road.

You will find unlimited doesn't mean unlimited. eg. BT's unlimited is 100gb and if you go over 2 months in a row they will cap you during peak times. If your on the 40gb limit they have the right to charge you per gb. This was the case when i rang up to renew my broadband. It may be different for you but i've never seen truely unlimited internet.Please feel free to point me to T&C which state its not capped and states its truely unlimited.....

Trust me virgin 50 meg is totally unlimited. I have used well over 100gig in month on numerous occasions with no speed restrictions. It's their only tariff that is unlimited though. They are rolling out 100gb this year they are testing it as we speak in some areas I have had 90 meg thus far a few times.

Check out the virgin website their 50 meg bb is totally unlimited, it's not like it's a secret or anything it's been discussed on here on numerous occasions. Bt don't offer anything like those speeds anyway.

Please link me to the T&S I can't get virgin FO or cable. Guessing you live in a city ...? There is BT FO a few miles down the road but they haven't upgraded the main town as there is over 2-3 x as many green box thingys to upgrade. Doesn't even look like i could get it this year either.

Virgin's Fibre Optic BB IS cable. One and the same thing. They don't use FO in to your house, just in to your local area. You could say the advertising is misleading but the main principal is true - Their speed doesn't decrease with distance.
