In a high gloss black finish, the LG 50PQ3000?Dual XD Engine processor optimises the picture quality from digital and analogue TV, and from anything else ?ames consoles, camcorders, etc. ?hat you have plugged into the external inputs.

600Hz technology provides clear images without any flickering or instability. And with an ultra fast response rate, this means that dynamic scenes are more realistic and movement is more natural.

An intelligent sensor works out when lighting conditions in the room change, altering the picture settings automatically. This provides a more enjoyable viewing experience and also uses less power, saving you money.

24p Real Cinema ensures you enjoy a judder-free film-like image just as the director intended, when connected to compatible Blu-ray or DVD players.

You? enjoy the 50PQ3000?audio performance ?ven though you won?be able to tell where it?coming from! It?all thanks to the invisible integral speakers. They? embedded in strategic spots around and underneath the front bezel, increasing the ?eet spot?o give a wider and richer sound field.

While watching movies via your DVD player, clever Clear Voice 2 technology adjusts the sound balance to emphasise dialogue and reduce background noise.

The USB 2.0 feature allows you to connect a USB flash memory device to the TV in order to play audio (MP3 files and display your favourite JPEG images. Includes a table top stand.

This television is ?gh definition ready?hich means it has the ability to display high definition signals with the addition of a separate HD receiver. HD broadcasts are at a much higher resolution than regular analogue or digital broadcasts and have greatly enhanced picture quality. The level of detail is astonishing with clearer, sharper and more vibrant images.

Its a good price for a 50 inch screen, but would expect a HD resolution for something that size.

This is "1365 x 768 " pixels
#2
Deal can simply not be beaten with a 5 year warranty included at that price, heat added

HOT from me as this is a great TV for the money.

Meaning it won't look horrible with SD feeds as all 1080p panels do. Even with SkyHD, PS3 and Blu-ray 75% of the viewing in my home (and many other i bet) is still SDTV.

And 720p Plasma's still do a stunning job with HD.

So which is the better tv-this one or the Panasonic 50" for £679 that was on here 2 days back?

Ridiculous and irrelevant comment !

Sure pay another £500 and get Full HD [COLOR="Red"]and 5 year warranty if you're very lucky[/COLOR].

Heat added - very good deal for the money - £140 a year guaranteed viewing or a new replacement if cannot be repaired - peanuts!

I agree, it seems pointless to buy a 50 inch 720 screen. The price may be good, but if you're going to get a massive 50 incher pay a bit more for 1080. If you get one with built in freeview or you use SKY HD, your SD will all look good anyway.

I know my money would go on the panasonic every single time. This is still hot but the Panny is hotter

you can get this from currys for the same price. This weekend there is also a £70 off voucher '70save' when you spend over 700. so just add a small item to your basket.

I've corrected your statement.

LCD and Plasma are completely different technologies. I've got this TV (well, the 50PG6000) and HD content looks stunning, easily rivalling most 1080p LCDs out there.

Instead of pixel-counting, see one yourself first hand!

No your are wrong.......SDTV and Freeview will always look better on a 720p plasma than on a 1080p one as the picture isn't being upscaled as much.

Just watching tennis on mine at the moment and its a very good picture, bought mine from richer sound who price matched john lewis and nocked £10 off, as for the panasonic one i think it never had very good reviews so went for this one and never looked back, looks great and a fantastic bargain.

That of course depends on the quality of the upscaling in the TV too.

To a degree but i haven't seen a 1080p TV yet better than a good quality 720p one.
#20
My 1080p LCD looks better on SD than alot of 720p showing HD I have seen in places like Currys (although often these are setup by Monkeys). It depends on the TV and the settings, and granted I paid £2.5k for mine.

I would always go for 1080p as I watch alot of HD content and Blu-ray so 1080p is IMO a must, but some 720p sets can outperform lesser quality 1080p sets. It depends on your budget and the individual model.

I think it is a wild claim to say that a 1080p set will look shocking with SD content.

With a quality upscaler, 1080p will display SD better because it has finer gradiations. Most upscalers on units <£2000 are pretty rubbish though.

Upscaling broadcast SD is really hellish hard, there's just not enough detail there to start with - DVD at least has decent bitrate. Might be worth going for a smaller set if a lot of your viewing is SD.

I'm sorry to break it to you but thats bull.. 1080p gives better gradiation? The panel used will determine how many bits a display will have, thus giving a greater range of colour (or gradients). Also upscaling to a higher resolution introduces more noise or artifacts due to having to fill the pixels of which were not there in the first place.

By the way good deal, added heat.
#26
Its a very good deal for this TV, but the best in class is the Panasonic X10, which has a deal on this site for less than 700, plus Pannys are more reliable. I wont vote cold but anyone looking for a cheap 50inch TV, the Panny is a better TV, with better blacks/colour depth, making this deal redundant. Plus LGs have image rentention problems (not burn)

Sorry but i've seen SD looking better on 720p Kuro's than on the 1080p ones.
#28
OK, I admit I'm not familiar with plasma screens as mine is LCD, but you'd still be better off buying a 1080 screen. I agree this is a great deal, but if your going to spend a lot of money on something like a TV (where technology is always improving) it makes no sense to buy a model which is already not to top standards.

Also, I have a 1080 40" screen and SD tv (built in freeview) looks excellent. It may not look as good as on a 720, but it still looks more than good enough to enjoy good TV shows. On top of that I get superior Blu ray and PS3 game playback as well as when I run my media centre PC through my TV. If all your going to do is watch SD then maybe a 720 might be better, but if you have any full HD devices then its pointless going for 720 because you loose out on those devices in exchange for a slightly better SD picture which is perfectly good (if not better than good) on the 1080 anyway.
#29
Sorry voted COLD, its not a bad deal but the Panasonic 50 C10 can be had from Richer Sounds for £599 or £659 with a 5year guarantee and thats a better TV than this by a little, which is important because people are only going to be buying 1 TV and therefore should be getting the best bang for their buck out there, and for that the C10 beats this 1
#30
You would be better off with a 1080p set I reckon if:

You watch lots of BluRay
You sit closer than 10ft (full benefit of 1080p on a screen this size at around 6 1/2 ft)

Of course, you will need to find some more money :-)

You dont get superior game playback on 1080p - they all (well most) run at 720p.... also, 1080p is only worthwhile if viewing from less than 5/6 foot - if your sitting further away than that, you are completely mssing the benefit of 1080p. It's only good for blue-ray at the mo (one of the very few 1080p source available) - and only if you sit 5 foot away (dependant on screen size).

I've just ordered a 1080p, because i sometimes do sit less than 5/6 foot away and sometimes watch blu-ray movies...
#34
If I sat 5/6 feet from a 50 inch screen I would litrally have an epi! why would anyone want to sit so close? (no offence cokeman) and if you have a room thats so small you have to then why would you need a 50 inch tv. I've read all these replys and I'm one of the ones who watches SD most so thanks for all your help I'm going to buy it right now.:thumbsup:

The C10 though is a nightmare if you are in a bright room as it doesn't have the anti-reflective coating of the X10.

1080p is a complete waste of money unless you sit within 6 foot on a 50" screen.
