Gonna go for this I think as reviews give it full marks. Anyone else got one and care to comment? Thanks
#2
Voted HOT as it seems a great price, however, have a look over at AV Forums to get a full low-down!
#3
This is a crazy price. I paid £1050 for mine (I'm sure it's the same model) at Xmas and it's a great TV.
#4
voted hot great price tho just bought a 42" plasma in summer so wont be buying

only worry is the company anyone had any dealings with them before?

5 year warranty isn't as good as I first envisaged as its onsite for year 1 and then return to base in years 2 to 5 (owner has to pay carriage costs but not parts / labour but return carriage would still be £50+). This is enough to turn me away from purchasing even with a good price like this.

Resolution is not the best either.......

Bought the 50pc56 recently from dixons which came with a sound system and stand for £950. Apparently its the same tv but with a black strip at the bottom.

It is an absolutely stunning tv for the price for anyone wondering what its like.

Looks like a top end tv with a lovely piano black frame.
#8
I think to buy a 720p/1080i set at this point would be a bad move personally. I know it's 50" but a really nice branded 40" 1080p could be had for less than this price.
#9
Depends what signal is going into it ?. Some people just want a big TV so I think its a great price. Its more of a bonus I think the warranty on top

Not necessarily, arguably the best plasma screen TV out at the moment is the Pioneer KURO range of TV's and they arent 1080p resolution!
#11
The added warranty is hardly worth having if it involves back to base delivery both ways.
#12
I also brought from Dixons 2/3 weeks ago for £950 inc Home Theatre and stand. Looks good. I can't get really decent picture, despite fiddling around with settings. Certainly no comparison to my Panasonic PX60 42 ", which is in a different class picture wise.
I also go the LG Surround system, which again, I am having difficulty setting up properly. Well, this is my excuse. Otherwise it may be the quality of the system that is not so good.
Great price for 50" but I think you are get what you pay for.
#13
Maybe a better place to buy?? Also several discount codes applicable.

Yep that's true I guess, if HD isn't an issue, and won't be in the future and size is then that's right 1080p/i makes no difference whatsoever.

Lol somehow I have a feeling that this LG set isn't going to be in the same class as a Pioneer Kuro, just like a Samsung probably wouldn't be either.

My opinion remains if HD is important (see my previous post) then a 1080i purchase when there exists a 1080p alternative of an 'arguably' better brand, albeit a little smaller, is a bad move future-proofing wise - especially as more and more 1080p sources come on stream. :)
#16
1080p is pretty pointless on a 40" screen though. you'd be unable to see *any* difference in quality if you sat more than 7' from the screen, and to get the full benefits of 1080p you'd have to sit under 5' from the screen.. which i doubt anyone would do.

at 50" and above it starts to make a lot of sense.. 1080p isnt even an hd standard at the moment and so there's not going to be any effort to get broadcast streams running it - for now its just consoles, disk based media and pcs. in 5 years time i'd say the picture will have changed considerably, but who keeps a tv for 5 years these days?? :)

Resolution is probably the last concern, research first and you will see there are many other factors to consider than resolution.

Having spent 6 weeks deciding what to buy, the LG would be close to the bottom. Far too many unhappy people with picture quality on this model.

I would seriously consider the extra money for something like the Panasonic PX70.
#18
thats the other thing in that article that makes this look better than the sammy as well

Also, the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) states the the most important aspects of picture quality are (in order): 1) contrast ratio, 2) color saturation, 3) color accuracy, 4) resolution. Resolution is 4th on the list and plasma is generally superior to LCD in all of the other areas (but much more prone to reflections/glare.) So pick your display size, then measure your seating distance, and then use the charts above to figure out if you would benefit from the larger screen size.

i know which one i'd choose..

Blimey! Some people expect miracles. This is a pretty good resolution. 50" 1080P would cost 2-3 times this price.

Hey guys. I spent £2k on a LG 50 PX4D and whilst using it something inside blew even I've got a power surge plug on it, and the screen no longer works.

The TV is 16 months old guys, so be really wary of buying an LG plasma, as I have read on the net that they are of bad workmanship.

Again, my 50" 50px4d worked fine for 16 months, then bang!

LG customer services don't care, and I'll have to spend bout £400 to get it fixed!

Be warned! Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings!

Better brand??
In the east LG are the market leaders in most electronics. Also they develop most of the new technology, make it for and sell it to other big name brands that are more well known in the west. They have apparently developed a new type of TV that uses CRT technology but is as slim as an lcd, uses less power and cost alot less to produce. This is the reason plasma's and lcd's are becoming much more affordable because they are getting as much buiseness out of them as they can befor they decide to produce the new technology.

There was a episode of the gadget show on channel 5 last year explaining all this at a convention in South Korea(i think). Also if you go to the gadget show web site you'll see that an LG plasma has been at top of Jasons favourite gadgets list for several months.

I have the LG 50PC1D. I paid £999 in April and have to say its fantastic. I have it hooked up to SD Sky my PC and my Xbox 360. The psicture is great, There's never any motion blur. Watching football is great. My mate has a pannasonic 42" plasma that he paid £1600 for. Football and any other fast moving pictures blur badly.

There are only 4 worldwide manufacturers of the plasma panels I believe. I'd never get one without at least a 3 year warranty and a decent one and that unlike the new John Lewis warranty where they just give you market price of your TV second hand!

Care to share your evidence on the above statement.

JL state on their web site the following ...

"... f you have purchased a television, your service guarantee is automatically 5 years in total ... If we decide your product cannot be repaired, or is uneconomical to repair, we'll replace it with the same model. If it's no longer available, we'll discuss an alternative settlement with you ... "

Here's a link to another LG innovation. 42" LCD 19.8mm in thickness. 120Hz technology that does away with motion blur.

Lots of more new tecnhnology designed by LG on this site if you type in LG in the search box. Like, 3D LCD, 100" 1080p lcd and Flexible epaper screens,

Had a LG lcd a couple of months ago the brand new 100hz version and had to send it back to dixons all the controls in the house turned it on so we would come down in the middle of the night to find the tv on i went to currys with my remote controls and sure enough same problem.

I rang LG and was told that they wasnt aware of this problem and no one had reported any problems but the guy in currys said all 2007 models are affected and i personally turned them all on in store the contols were virgin v+/Dlink media dsm320rd and just about every other remote in the house how the hell can LG not be aware its not like im the only owner of a v+box there customer service was rubbish they told me nothing could be done and to get another tv.

Plenty of discussion in other threads about this. basically they will give you what the TV is worth second hand.

I'd rather have teleland's 5 year warranty (even if the carriage for return after year 1 is at my cost). Flattellys only cover returns for 14 days from purchase then just refer you to the TV manufacturer which can be a lot of hassle as they generally refer you back to the retailer. I guess thats why they can offer the TVs cheaper by washing their hands of responsibility after 14 days.

Strictly I dont think that is legal but I'm not sure.

But you have to query the 5 year guarantee - fine if "Teleland" are still a thriving business in five years time but worth diddly squat if they go down the tubes, which is par for the course for so many on-line discount e-tailers.

Ultimately, the manufacturer will be held responsible for their product -albeit via their distribution network. The Sale of Goods Act gives a number of extra safeguards but unless your "5 Year Guarantee" is insurance backed or is itself guaranteed by an established organisation like John Lewis, then I reckon you should treat it with caution:whistling:
banned#36
My point was that flattellys are breaking the sale of goods act by denying warranty responsibility after 14 days. Believe me, the manufacturer will refer you back to the retailer as that is who the contract of sale is with. Could be a nightmare if anything goes wrong in year 1.

Received this from Teleland:-

Hi,

We have been trading for one year and have expanded exponentially since then
and still are. Our warranty is not underwritten by any insurance company as
this would increase the costs significantly. If we ceased trading then the
warranty would indeed be void, although this is very unlikely due to the
rapid expansion of the company. 5 years warranty is taken into consideration
when pricing the TVs and is a risk we take on ourselves. Hope that helps!

Kind Regards
