Great price, good set. Excellent value.
Reviews here: http://www.avforums.com/review/LG-PK350-50PK350-Review.html
Would consider this but purchased a new LX5090 from Richer Sounds yesterday!
I prefer this to the more expensive PK550 that is the same TV with networking and some HDMI options added. I prefer the TV to just do the basics and internet etc do be done via separates (WD TV Live etc)

Thanks for the heads up on stock in West London. Amazes me the panel technology moves quite slowly look at the Panasonic Plasmas for 2011 Vs 2010. The manufacturers are just driving prices down, with picture quality a distant 4th or 5th priority. I think this is normal as the market is mature and developing new technology is costly and without charging pre 2008 prices the rate of evolutions has to slow. So they just stuff networking, netflex, iplayer, youtube etc on the premium sets. The built in premium services are mediorce at best. I was disapointed with the picture quality on the built in FreeSAT HD (its not bad but not a patch o n the Humax HDR) on a Bravia TV we have, the cheap Tesco Technica TV upstairs looks great running off the HUMAX HDR. The on board freeview tuner on the Tesco set is rubbish, but the TV has a Samsung panel.

Rang tesco this morning to check stock instore, they said that TV is not on their systems
#17
That's odd. Even if they weren't gonna sell it anymore, you'd expect it to have to be in their system for it to scan.

Well they are definitely around as it was only yesterday that I saw them.

Its most likely deleted off head office systems but a few are lying in the back of some storerooms

Not 65" or holographic, I'm with horacevankhute - this would have to be £1.99 to be hot.

50 inch are these things standard in council houses now oO
#25
gd price, but you've got to be buying freeview hd these days
#26
I got this tv 2 months ago for £550, this is a Great tv with a small frame, well worth £449 i might buy another one.
#27
I bought this when it was on 440 from amazon,

plus side, its 50inch its cheap its thin and it looks awesome
down side, it has very bad glare during day but during night its a treat especialy HD.

sound is ok for for TV speakers if your not arsed but if u do like your music it only has optical out for external sound

input lag is noticable using mouse and pc through hdmi and vga, but playing xbox 360 black ops and dirt 3 i dont notice it, xbox is weak vs pc gaming.

I thought the USB divx was gona be great and it is for having hd support but im using my pc hooked up anyway so wasent realy required
Note usb dont support dolby dts which sucks but then again neither does my surround sound system, most 1080p divx is dts, the 720p ones tend to be ac3 which is supported, i convert the dts to ac3 in about 10min using popcorn.

overall for the price i dont mind the downsides at all considering i didnt have to bust my bank for just a telly, the glare is the biggest thing to get over, even at night in a well lit room its a bloody mirror.

Can't believe this finally got hot. Posted this 10 days ago.

That said, Osterley do still have two sitting on their shelves. I was in there today.

Looks good to me.
Voted hot.

Is this better than my panny G10?
#32
No 3D - not worth it,
#33
Just a warning, have a couple of models above this, but DONT buy it if you intend to use it as a TV / PC combo screen, it has a terrible white balance that you cannot turn off that makes your screen go a light gray when browsing white pages and just screws up colours really. Great for films though!
#34
Oh yeh, and awsome price, payed ~£600 6 months ago

The model up has an anti-glare coating on, which this as the bottom of the range LG doesn't. However it's still a good price for what you getting.

IMO no, Panasonic's G range is mid-range, where this is bottom. If this were the 590 (model up) I would say, it may be worth the upgrade.

No 3D - not worth it,


Enjoy paying twice as much for your TV as a comparable 2D TV, while there is virtually no worthwhile 3D footage. I'll just buy a 50' 2D TV for £500ish now and then in three years when the 3D technology is mature, buy a new 50' 3D TV for the same price.

Who would you recommend in your experience cfpheonix?
#37
Heat added because its a good price, but this tv (+590) has some awful problems.

Image retention is dire, even when bedded in, horizontal banding and awful motion handling for a plasma, not a bad set by far but personally not worth the praise this and the 590 gets.
#38
Got one of these a while back from Amazon for about £470.

It's an excellent tv. The picture quality is fantastic, and the design of the tv - the LED-like depth of the tv and the thin bezel frame - look gorgeous.

I've replaced my Samsung PS50B530 with it - well the Sammy has now gone in the master bedroom with the LG replacing in the lounge - as the LG is so much better in every respect. And unlike the Samsung - and for example the Panny G20 - the LG gives me no plasma buzz whatsoever.

If I needed a third 50" plasma, I'd be all over this Tesco deal!
#39
I had a thought today in regard to 3D. Would you think it is possible to upgrade firmware on a 2D tv as I was thinking that it was a software modification for 3D and not a hardware modification. Please correct me if im wrong

When there was a deal on 42" Panasonic plasmas at Tesco, I went in and asked and it wasn't on their system then either. It's old stock that is deleted off the system that they are told to put out on show if they have any (not likely).
