I can't really agree with you there mate!

I bought the 42inch LCD version of this TV (being advertised at the same £399.99) 2days ago, luckily they had a few left in stock - I went and collected same day (Birmingham store) :thumbsup:.

Oh, god...refresh rates aren't going the same way as dynamic contrast are they?? The human eye can't see over 60Hz, but people will be lapping up these 10000000000000hz TV's like it's the next best thing! :/

hz does make a difference but insane hz count is marketing ** just like led is a different (species)tv
#5
that said you need a TV that can do 240hz for all that 3D malarky from what I understand. Would also have to be 1080p tho i think.

It does help remove motion blur beacuse if each pixel changes quicker your eyes have less chance to see that pixel mid-change meaning you will see a clearer picture with the proper colour that the pixel should be for that image

If it didn't actually affect your viewing Companys wouldn't have spent millions researching it and improving it from the 60Hz.

Shame its not 1080p

u need true 120hz tv that can process 120 hz input....these tv take in 50 or 60 hz input and process them to give out 600hz out put so although 600hz or 200hz tv they cant do 3d.1080p is plus but not must.
#9
this 600hz has nothing to do with motion people
#10
No good at all 3d tvs not Plasmas
#11
Nothing to do with refresh rates either. LCDs need multi hundred hz refresh rates (made up via interpolation) to get around motion blur, plasmas don't.

The refresh rate of all current plasmas are 50/60hz, with better models frame-repeating 50 up to 100hz to avoid flicker, and 24p up to 96hz. Be lucky if this model does the former, and no chance of the latter.

It's yet more meaningless marketing gibberish in the HDTV world - they just figured they needed a large sounding number to compete with LCDs at 120/240hz whatever, so plucked an internal engineering element out of their ****s and headlined the marketing around that.


Oh, and the briughtness and contrast stats for this are utter, utter ********, as usual. Brightness 1500cd/m2 would burn your eyeballs and kill your cat - you want 10x less than that ideally. Contrast 12 million to one? Reality: It's 1025:1 (which is reasonable for this price point), so they exaggerated the true figure by 11000x.

Are you sure about that? With my PC monitor I can definately notice less flicker when I switch from 60hz to 75hz... Maybe I need my eyes testing! :thinking:

If that's true how is it that when comparing 50Hz, 100Hz and 200Hz televisions side by side with the same quick moving scene the other week I could distinguish between all three quite clearly? I am genuinely asking the question here, because I don't know the science behind it. But it seems to be that clearly makes some difference.
#14
So refresh rate on Plasma not needed that high? They're just trying to market it agianst the lcds with 240hz ect..
#15
Good Price.

I've got the slightly better spec LGPQ6000 (£440 in January and voted almost cold on here) and it is a cracking TV. Picture, sound and features are great. Isn't 1080p either but beats a lot of comparable 1080p LCDs i've seen hands down in both HD abd SD
#16
I dont get it, whats the point of a 42" tv if it is only 1024 resolution????
#17
Not full HD but still good price if you can find one.
#18
the human eye can see up to 80 hz or so.
but different people see / feel the flicker at different levels.
#19
Will have to check Newcastle for this one tomorrow...

Full HD isn't the be all and end all, and a lot of people won't even notice the difference at normal sitting distance.

This is a good TV btw, and also comes with a USB port that plays photos, music and (with a little tinkering) divx movies too.

There is a minimum, but for a different reason to LCDs: plasmas flicker at below 60hz or so - the exact figure is a little lower than CRTs, where 75hz was usually needed.

Thus, in Europe, where we have 50hz content as standard, most (all?) current plasmas will use 100hz and play every frame twice. From a quick googling, this LG appears to do this. However, with 60hz content, they won't cos it's not needed.

For 24p content, which means Blurays but also any ntsc dvds you've bought direct from the US, these really need to be 4x repeated (ie at 96hz) to avoid flicker, but a lot of models don't do that - for Samsung, only the 550 and above do, for Panasonic, the S10/G10/V10. I'd be very surprised if this LG does.


When a plasma says it's 400hz or 600hz, that's the subfield figure, and basically irrelevant to end users. It's nothing to do with the refresh rate, which is 48/50/60/100hz, and 120 with the new 3d models.

Idiot. HD Ready means it must have a minimum of 720 vertical lines which this does. 1024 x 768 is normal for a plasma because of the rectangular pixels. Get back to your 1080p Technika LCD.
#31
Meh Richer Sounds. waste of time

So cheap coz not full HD
personally don't like plasmas veery much, they act like big mirrors

Are you serious!! Exactly, humans cant see the screen refreshing, thats what makes the picture look smooth! Imagine if we COULD see it refreshing!...

Yep thats right! its only 720p thats why its cheapo! i bought a full hd 32" for £349

Not suprised they want to clear the 720p now that 3D is coming.
#37
does this tv have PIP/split screen capabilities?
#38
People saying 720p on this size is no good talk poop - Sky mostly broadcast HD at 720p anyway so even with ya full 1080p and a Sky HD box you aint watching 1080 unless you have a bluray player as well.

I have a 40" 1080p sony and watch a lot of 720p films and there is often no/very little difference in quality to the 1080p films I watch. Tempted to buy this for a second TV for the conservatory to be honest..
#39
sky don't broadcast anything at all at 720p
the only standard they use is 1080i
#40
3D Tv is gonna be in very limited use by Sky sports, and there are so many competing standards of 3Dtv I would wait it out before you shell out. Really I dont see 3D reaching its full potential for a while, I mean we havent even got widespread HD broadcasts via streaming, sat, cable, sky, freeview yet let alone 3D. And just how good it will be I dont know.I think reallly its just skys attempt at having a gimic to keep customers as they are loosing so many now thanks to iplayer, tv catchup, 4od, freeview, freesat. I would say go for this TV, good brand, good shop, good price and will be make your HD content look great anyway for years to come.

If you were to keep buying what is said to be the next big thing you would be buying a new TV every month.
