The 47" version scores a pretty respectable 57% from Which?, getting good scores for sd and hd picture.
#15
Over 37" get a Plasma....thats what ive always been told
#16
I have this TV, i paid just over £600 so great price!!!

Can't fault the TV to be honest. I haven't tried it with freeview or connected it to anything via scart as i used hdmi.
HD pictures look stunning from both the PS3 and from the small selection Virgin offer on HD.
Also great picture via Virgin V+ upscaled SD.
All round i don't think you'd be disappointed with your purchase.
#17
better deal at argos... untill the 18th

£549 ... but with

3 year warranty and free delivery if bought online using code edf10 at the checkout
#18
I bought this tv about 6 weeks ago for £570 from dixons. From having a 28", this tv is huge. Its glossy black finish is superb, picture is really good, it has slight motion blur, 3 hdmi sockets, nice set up menus. i chose it after reading [url]www.reevoo.co.uk[/url]. Grab it now you won't be disappointed.

You do know LCD is better than Plasma, right? :)

Is this the best deal at the moment and can someone find a proper review on it?

Thanks

Its amazing tempting, i feel at least a 3 yr warranty is a must tho and not an option, i hear argos are doing this with 3 yr but no stock near me (Hull).
Going to wait 2 weeks see what happens but for the money think this is gunna be the one for me, ive got 500 budget tops.

Hmm, now I am not sure.

http://www.trustedreviews.com/tvs/review/2008/05/01/LG-42LG5000-42in-LCD-TV/comments

The main problem is its inability to keep motion blur in check. Moving objects, such as a car zooming round the city or even more gentle movements like Will Smith raising his hand to his head, leave a really obvious trail behind them that gives the picture a disorienting haze and compromises edge definition. On this evidence LG's claimed 5ms response time seems optimistic - perhaps the TruMotion 100Hz mode will eliminate the problem on its higher-end sets.

However, it seems that your statement is wrong. 24p certainly does not look smooth. It is almost certainly displayed at 50Hz, which, of course, is the wrong thing to do. It's beyond me why manufacturers do this, as the effect is very visible, and horrible.

I'm trying to return my set. My 4 year old LCD TV plays back Bluray 24p at 48Hz smoothly, so I know what it is supposed to look like!

Easy tigers, it isn't a p*ssing contest is it?

I think it is fair to say that neither has won the war on this issue quite yet, with good and bad versions of both coming out all th time.

Plasma's do usually have better viewing angles, but usually use more power too.
Apart from that it really depends on the model.
#27
TBH it also really depends on use. Plasma is great for films on their own as they have better black levels and normally give better black level details eg you can see more detail in the black (Since lcd works essentially by being one big light source and can give greyer blacks than a plasma).

However if you are linking up pc's/consoles etc then LCD usually looks better as to my eyes it looks far more dynamic and the colours are stronger and even at the same res, pc/games look sharper and better.

Really horses for courses and which one suits your needs IMO :thumbsup:
#28
Just placed my order.
Don't forget the voucher codes EMAIL25 to save 20 quid (or SAVE25 to get £25 if you spend over 599 by adding other item(s))
The code DELTV for free delivery still seems to work too!!

absolute rubbish statement and no basis in fact

LG.Philips LCD Co., the existing 50-50 joint venture between Philips and LG in Active Matrix Liquid Crystal Display

your statement means phillips is also rubbish please quote from a source before making such statements

Dunno whether to get this one or the 42LG3000.
As I'm probably gonna use it primarily for sd viewing from Virgin cable and normal dvd's, which should I get?
Do I really need full HD? I don't play games very much (might get a ps3 eventually but don't have a hd games system at the mo) and don't have blu ray yet either.
Does the 3000 get a better sd score on which? because it is not full hd?
Will there really be that much difference between 720 and full hd when I do get it, especially given that probably 95% of what I watch will be sd anyway?

Any answers and advice will be hugely appreciated!

Cheers

Great, another one to think about!
Too be honest, this one is outside my budget (which has crept up from a nice cheap 37lg3000 at under £400), and which? don't exactly rave about it either

[INDENT]Like many of the more average TVs in our viewing tests, the LG struggles with our telling ‘model’ sequence. The subtle facial skin tones can be tricky for the digital processing software to reproduce realistically and accurately and, in this case, revealed serious colour banding. Other niggles include an obvious stepped backlight effect and some minor issues with picture softness, washed out blacks and a juddering effect on vertical pans. The LG looks more like a washed out old LCD and, not surprisingly, our technical tests revealed a significant chroma luma delay – meaning there’s a mismatch between the colour and brightness elements of the video.

High definition (HD) fared better, despite some slight banding and slightly soft images – but sound quality is pretty average. We liked the dynamics when listening to pop music, but high frequencies are tinny and there’s a noticeable distortion problem.
The LG is fairly straightforward to use. It’s easy to set-up and the remote is clearly labelled - but it’s not without a fair few niggles. We found the remote sluggish and uncomfortable to use, the instruction manual is daunting, and the transparent electronic programming guide is quite annoying to use.
[/INDENT]

Thanks, although the good thing about advice is that even if you don't follow it, it is still useful ;-)
