Bless her, just look how happy she is with her new telly

Great deal, the 37" is in Asda at the moment for £400 so this is a hot deal. The picture quality on the LG sets are awesome and for anyone who doesnt know Philips makes the panels for these. Great find.
#3
Sorry the 37" in Asda is an LCD by the way model number LG 37LG3000.
#4
great buy if you can live with 720p on a screen this big !!

My god this comes up so many times when an lcd/plasma gets listed. You really can't tell the difference between 720p and 1080p on a screen this big unless you are about two feet away. Anything over 42" and yeah it would make a noticeable difference. If you have a blu-ray player which outputs at 1080p as standard you may notice the slightest difference the closer you get to the screen but in normal viewing circumstances (such as a living room) you really won't. Sky HD etc are 720p signals, consoles which utilise HD such as the PS3 and Xbox 360 have a very short list of native 1080p games, 90% are 720p output, so in response to your comment I have to disagree. :whistling:
#6
looks like a good deal to me! does anybody know what the difference between this model and the LG 42PG6010 is?
#7
^^^^^

you can extend the standard 1 year guarantee to 3 by paying £29.99 and joining the Empire Direct edXtra Membership, which seems pretty reasonable and a sensible option to take,

am looking for 42" plasma, was seriously considering the Panasonic TH42PX80 from Richers at £550 which includes the 5 year guarantee but will now have to review the LG to see whether it comes upto scratch

can anybody offer an opinion on whether its worth paying the extra for a panny and how far away should you be sitting from a 42" plasma to get a decent view, also what would you recommend for a 50"?
#9
720p only....
#10
Not worth it for just 720p.

#12

I second that, Just got my 37LG6000, just putting it through its paces and there is barely and difference between 720p and 1080p at comfortabel viewing distance, and for a good while yet the only things you`ll be using 1080p for is ps3/xbox games and blu ray, everything else will be 720p at best!

Hi

Does anyone know how this compares with the Panasonic TH42PX80B ?
[mod]#17


Possibly, I think so; but at £456.48 delivered it's more expnsive
#18


Looks the same model, just that electrical Deals TV's are usually refurbs. Not that thats a bad thing as friends have purchased from there before with no problems.

£65 delivery is very expensive though....................
#19
I got this for £468 from comet a couple of months ago, great TV at a good price at the time.

If your not worried about the HD its a good telly.

The Panasonic gets lots of very good reviews, example ;

http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/Panasonic-TH42PX80/

Good article and distance chart here ;

I've been researching to buy and nearly bought the Panasonic. In the end went for the Samsung PS42A457 from Argos £492 (-1.5% Quidco) delivered with 3yr warranty. Nearly bought the 50" version (Argos £686 delivered 3yr warranty) but thought it would be too big for our room and couldn't justify the extra £200 to the missus. LG generally had some burn issues I read.
#21
This screen is excellent for the price and easily comparable to the 42px80 for picture quality, it is better for standard definition ( freeview and normal dvds ) due to the scaler being better. However the panny px80 has better blacks.

The lg has better sound and an easier menu system :thumbsup: voted hot and rep

I was wondering what sort of TV would suit my needs best - in terms of inches that is.

The closest seat is approx 8.5 ft from where teh TV would be - I dont want an enormous screen to dominate the room but want to ensure I have enough to enjoy movies etc

PS - I noticed the Panasonic has an SD card slot - does anyone know if it plays .avi files?

If you do a search on the sammy "416" plasma deal a motnh ago, there was a post with a distance chart on it showing the relative merits of size to distance. Personally, ive compared full hd and hd ready at 4-5 and 8-9 ft and you cant tell the diff on a 42inch. Optimimum at 42 is about 6-7+ft.

I was wondering the same thing on the panny, i think for sure it play photos and avchd. The latter means you can arguably dump a hd bluray or hd avi file and convert it to avchd to play back., i would review the BD35 panny bluray player as seems to also have the slot and also divx, which may mean that the tv will play on a similar basis in theory.
