This is a fantastic deal, I went to purchase the panasonic that got really hot on here through Dixons but all they did was mess me around so I had a look in currys today and this was the stand out set for my budget in that it's full hd and the picture in store looked fantastic in comparrison with others, great reviews too.
#2
Also Dixons do the same price with there tv20 code but i would never use Dixons again
#3
I think this is a great deal, I did see Dixons one but I've dealt with them before and its fine if everything goes well but if it doesn't thats when the trouble starts :\
#4
Looks great. What bothers me is that it only has 2 HDMI inputs.
#5
One more thing: the title says full HD, but in the amazon description they mention 'HD-ready'. What is it really?
#6
It's just stupid labelling. Just check the resolution. If it's 1920x1080, then it's full HD. 1080i and 1080p are slightly different, and people usually look for 1080p.
#7
Great deal but with only 2 HDMI it's not ticking all my boxes.
#8
We bought this tv a week ago and love it, really nice picture.
Only downside is the rather weak sound so buying a 5.1 speaker set at the weekend.
It's an absolute bargain at this price though.

I've heard Plasma is better for SD than LCD? Is this true?

I too am struggling to decide what to buy to replace my Panasonic Plasma 42" (becuse it's a rental at £36 a month then I'm paying £432 per year, so even if I buy one and it breaks in a year, I'm better off financially to buy now than rent.)

Should I buy LCD or Plasma?
#11
I'd say what i say every time this is posted as a deal. Brilliant TV and brilliant price (i think the sound is really good too) but the personally i think the stand very plasticy and would recommend wall mounting if it's an option.

Heat!

You rent your tv?? :| You're basically throwing your money away mate, it's highly unlikely if you buy a new LCD or Plasma on the market today it's gonna break within several YEARS. If I were after a new TV of this size I'd go for a Panny Plasma hands-down. I'm currently using a 40" 1080p Sammy LCD but having seen the Panasonic plasmas in action, I find them to be much better. Better picture, more natural colours, deeper blacks, and improved motion handling.

Bare in mind this is just my opinion, LCDs are getting better and better.. The gap is closing rather quickly between the two technologies. Me?? Panny plasma.
#13
Wow I didn't know companies still rented TVs out.

Will have a look into this TV because that's quite a bargain..

What are you doing renting a TV?
I didn't even know you can do that...
Please stop throwing money down the toilet & buy a TV.

LCD or Plasma, you can't go wrong with either.
I myself have gone with LED (LCD) mainly due to the power savings.

LCD v Plasma? If I were you I would go for a plasma but not LG.......instead go for a Panasonic HD ready or full HD.
To me LCD makes everything look like a Buzz Lightyear cartoon.

i have this tv and its a cracker, this sound is very good, the sd picture is good on a hd box and the hd picture is superb,i have mounted mine on a wall and is well worth the money, it has 2 hdmi 1 in back 1 at side,the tv is pretty thin to,i was looking at the 50 inch lg plasma aswell which was very nice also and even thinner but was just a bit to big for me...for just under 400 sobs its a winner
i also have a pretty new panasonic 42inch plasma tv which i paid nearly £900 for and in my opinion the lg is as just as good maybe not as better build quality but equal on picture and sound...i would never pay top dollar for a tv again...
had read decent reviews on sony bravia's but man those tv's are so ugly

Yeah they only weigh 15kg with the stand i believe.

Well been on the phone to Dixons today 3 times and twice to my bank and they still have not refunded me, there's no wonder they went bust!

I had a 42" LG LCD, which broke and they didnt repair in time so I swapped it for a Panasonic Plasma. I found that the Panasonic Plasma has a brilliant picture and is particularly good with blu ray whilst watching Films on an evening, However it can be really hard to see during the day when its sunny, a problem I never found with my LG. So from this experience I prefer LCD for standard general day time viewing, but for those winter evenings id take my plasma anyday.
Just thought id mention this, may not be a problem for others.

I just bought this TV last month, its a cracking TV, was gonna go for the 50" LG Plasma until I saw both sets side by side in Currys. Everything I have looks fantastic through it and the colours are so rich. . The next model up has the 3 HDMIs but it wasnt a deal-breaker for me, and this is a fantastic price, I paid £429 with them price-matching Richer Sounds. . .

I can definitely recommend this TV, I love it, 10 times better than my old Hansspree 37" and about a quarter the weight. . .

Just bought this Tv with a LG Blu ray player and HDMI lead through Dixons. Using discount code TV20 and using Quidco cashback took the deal under £500

Its all detailed over on http://lgusb.wikispaces.com/

Basically use a OFA remote to enter service mode and then enable the divx/mkv playback

Yes.

Just bought one for my mum.... nice Christmas prezzie. Bit of a bargain TV to be honest. Might not be the best as far as features go, however it's 1080p LCD with freeview, 2 hdmi's, USB, good contrast ratio and it's nice and slim... more than suitable for most!
