Received the Bank Holiday sale email from Richer Sounds and this seemed like a pretty good deal for a 32" LCD tv with freeview and freesat.

"The LG 32LF7700 is a freesat TV that takes Digital television to new levels.
Offering a wide range of digital TV and radio channels, including High Definition TV stations, freesat HD is a revolution in choice and quality. Simply connect to a satellite dish and enjoy free to air digital TV in both standard and High Definition. HD offers up to five times the detail!
With its 1080p Full HD resolution, the 32LF7700 is the perfect TV to complement freesat HD plus your HD sources such as PS3 and Blu-ray player. The new Twin XD Engine offers faster, more accurate picture processing than ever before with some stunning results to show for it. Match a screen response time of just 5ms with a brightness of 500cd/m2 and stunning dynamic contrast ratio of 50, 000:1 and it's clear to see that this is a TV that's anything but average. In short, whatever you're watching will be crisp and detailed with superb resolution and the ideal brightness.
As usual, we would always recommend using a separate home cinema system but if you're intent on using the LG's built-in sound system you might be pleasantly surprised. Using an "invisible" speaker system the 32LF7700 sounds crisp and precise. Furthermore, the SRS TruSurround system creates a spacious sound that avoids the typical TV boxiness.
In terms of connections, the 32LF7700 has everything you'd expect plus more besides. Twin rear-mounted HDMI (and one side-mounted) sockets allow for the connection of 3 High Definition sources, such as a PS3, HD camcorder and Blu-ray. In addition to this, the 32LF7700 boasts twin SCART sockets and component connections for your analogue sources. Furthermore, the PC input makes this attractive TV the perfect complement to your home computer. Topping off the wide range of sockets is a digital optical sound output - ideal for connecting this LG 32 inch LCD TV to your home cinema for a useful upgrade in sound quality.
Featuring a gloss black surround and elegant stand, the 32LF7700 looks as good as it performs. Thanks to the latest technology, it's also Energy Saving Recommended. For a 32 inch freesat HD1080p LCD TV with an impressive spec and smooth, good looks, the 32F7700 is hard to beat."

Direct link shows it at £329.95 not the emailed price.

OK, forget the Panasonic. The contrast ratio on this set is awful, I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole. To say "stunning dynamic contrast ratio of 50, 000:1" is a complete joke.

Which begs the question--what if I want a Freesat LCD TV all for the princely sum of £299? . Hardly like-for-like

I would say, don't buy one. A Freesat TV has very limited value as you can't use it to record. A separate Freesat STB allows you to either record its output or you could buy a model with an integrated PVR allowing you to watch one channel whilst recording another.

It's highly unlikely anybody is going to have a satellite feed in any other room than the living room and in this room you are likely to want to record stuff when you go out. You can't if your only broadcast feed is going into the TV.

I really can't see much value in having Freesat in the display panel itself, it really limits your options.

This just online order only?

inspite of all the comments about freesat HD I still think it is a good deal. I havent seen a TV with the same spec cheaper than this.

best price was on the email I received at £299. Online was showing at £329, not sure what price instore would be so best to quote the emailed figure. Online link didn't enable you to order directly that I can remember but did have a stock locator so you can check if your nearest RS has one available.

To judge the quality of a TV by it’s DCR! Now that’s a complete joke.

I strongly considered the 32LF7700 a while ago, and whilst its EPG is a bit sluggish and not brilliantly thought out, the picture quality on this TV is quite good, it was a good as the Samsung series 5 LCDs if not better.
I'm sure it will be discounted further as people want to buy freeviewHD TVs now, if I see one for £250 I'd snap it up instantly.

i actully own this tv for my bedroom..but i brought it for £329.99 from argos..heat added though!

I bought this TV a while back and is generally quite good, but there's a problem with the audio processing unit - sometimes it cuts out, sometimes goes out of sync and the max volume is rubbish. I'm sure they will honour the warranty but they only do a pickup service for under 32" tvs so until I get a car I can't sort it

Not at all, it's one of the best measures of a TV.

The contrast ratio is a measure of the brightness of the darkest black compared to the whitest white. The higher the number, the more contrast range the TV has to display the image.

On a TV with a poor contrast ratio, like this one, if you have the brightness low enough to make the black parts of the screen actually black, all the whites will end up a dull grey colour. If you turn the brightness up to make the white actually white, you end up with a dull grey background.

You know those dark scenes in movies or dramas where you can't quite see what is going on as it is too dark? If you turn the brightness up, you still can't see as the background just keeps getting brighter? That's the poor contrast ratio on your TV set.

On a decent TV set, the DCR would be 1 million plus. It's the reason people come to my house and say "wow, that's a good picture on your TV".

HD stands for High Definition and it doesn't just mean high resolution. It takes a lot more than a few extra dots to display the image on screen as intended. Compared to SD, HD whites are one shade whiter and HD blacks are one shade darker. If you can't see these extra shades, you're wasting your money on a TV set that claims to be full HD.

I agree that the Contrast Ratio is important but the Dynamic Contrast Ratio that you referred to is less useful as so many manufacturers fudge that figure which means it is impossible really to make an accurate comparison from the DCR.

I know where you're coming from, but they are all fudging it the same way.

For Plasma they used to publish Contrast Ration for the display. Then LCD came along and, as it couldn't compete due to backlights etc. they started publishing Dynamic Contrast Ratio instead.

For example, my Viera plasma has a Contrast Ratio of 30,000 to 1. Then LG come along with their LCD and publish a Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 50,000 to 1. To the uneducated, they may see the LG as better and click the "hot" button on this deal.

My Viera actually has a DCR of 1,000,000 and Panasonic have learned to publish this to re-educate people on the advantages of superior screen tech.

CR is a more accurate measure, for sure, but panels can be compared fairly accurately using DCR as one is fairly proportional to the other. Also, the cheaper manufacturers refuse to publish a pure CR figure and then sites like Richer Sounds make it worse by publishing the DCR figure in the same box on their specifications table.

On a related note, when I was a kid, a company called Goldstar used to make naff stereo systems. They were cheap, but poor quality overall.

That company was actually called Lucky Goldstar and decided to rebrand using their initials....LG.
