Tempted...

This a a steal!!! I got one last yr for £700, was a bargain then!
The pound is weak yet TVs are falling like crazy!
I guess the LED back lit wall paper TVs are taking over plasma and LCDs!

How do you mean "why plasma?"
#6
cos uninformed people think plasma TVs need regassing and are the minions of satan himself

yes, this is quite true - my five year old 50" LG Plasma needs re-gassing every other week. I simply insert a set of bellows in the plug socket and pump a couple of times...

(for those of you who are genuinely taken in by this idiotic misconception my 5 year old LG plasma is working very nicely thank you.)

tempted to buy this for the lounge and then put the other one in the bedroom...

That's an amazing price for one of the best 50" sets going, especially with the voucher and quidco it's only £524.

Only real downside: make sure you don't have lights falling directly onto the screen, it's very reflective.
#9
thanks for the code OP

great price...ordered one
#10
very good price and spec for a 50 inch tv
#11
Ordered and also bought the Samsung LE40C530 40" for the bedroom, thanks OP :thumbsup:
#13
Seriously tempted. But not sure whether to buy from Richer Sounds and get five years warranty for extra £60 meaning TV will cost £660 with 5 years.

Or get the PK590 for £770 with 5 years warranty from Richer as well.

I'm in the same position, albeit I've discounted the PK590 thinking I'd rather get the Humax set top Freeview HD box rather than have it inbuillt.

Maybe Richer Sounds would price match - at least to the voucher price if not the price with Quido as well? I've not bought from there in a while, but know there's often haggling to be done in terms of price or stuff being thrown in.

I think I'm gonna give it a shot with them; I'd rather have a the option of a 5 year warranty, but don't know if I wanna pay £50 more for the option - that would bring the warranty up to around 20% of the purchase price rather than the usual 10%.
#15
It still works out cheaper with 5 yrs warranty from Richer Sounds. I might take a visit to Currys and have a look at the TV again. A bit concerned about the reflection issue as there is a lot of daylight into our living from a big windows.
#16
There's almost no point looking at TVs in Currys. Not only is it 234523x brighter than any living room, but the lights are a different type. On top of that, this set is one of the worst going for reflections, so it'll look especially bad.

For bright content viewing, like sports/news etc, you need to avoid sunlight directly onto it. If you can, the content will swamp the reflections and they're not an issue.

For movies with dark scenes, you need a darkened room, with any lights low, and behind the set. I use an energysaver 5w bulb (equivalent to 25w in old bulb type) behind the set, that's the sort of low light I'm talking about. If you don't do this, then brighter things in your room will reflect out of the dark bits of the screen.


These are pretty severe restrictions for most. On the plus side, it offers superb colour accuracy (in expert1 mode only!) and contrast, at an incredible price. If you have access to a meter to sort the greyscale, and like watching in the semi-dark, it produces a picture that can only be beaten by a £2k set like a vt20 or the best local-dimming led-backlit sets.

Im after the 50 inch PJ550. This is tempting tho...

Why would you prefer the PJ550 for the same money - it's a vastly inferior tv.
#19
I'm cancelling my order with Dixons and buying 2 of these, absolute bargain!

That's like going for a VW rather than a Porsche cos you've subject to the same speed limit in both - fair enough if the 720p set was 2/3 of the price, but for the same price it couldn't be more of a no-brainer.
#23
^ Ive ordered it anyway. I have a 42inch pq6000 (720p) which Im more than happy with. I'll let you know how it is.
And btw - My new TV plays divx video through usb

I think you've made a bad choice to be honest mate, and one you will likely come to regret.

Ask any AV enthusiast which is the better tv, and I'll bet 100 out of 100 will say the LG in this thread. It really is a no-brainer - start a thread on AV Forums asking which is the better tv for the same money. The response will be unanimously in favour for the LG 50PK50.

I appreciate you having said you're only gonna watch SD and 720p sources on it at present and so have no current need to 1080p, but things could change I'd imagine? Blu-Ray players are becoming cheap as chips, while things like the Acer Revo - which can be used as Home Theatre PC's upto 1080p - can be had for not much over £100 dependent on which model you go for. As for playing divx files over USB, any cheap media player will do that over HDMI.

You're not really 'future-proofing' yourself going for the tv you've opted. Don't mean to be funny - I'm trying to be helpful - but for the same money I think you'd be very wise cancelling your order for the PJ550 (which is an at least 18 month old tv) for this year's higher-specced 50PK350 (which I think I'm right in saying plays MKV over USB).

It's a no-brainer. My Porsche/VW analogy earlier was a little unfair however. Think if you were offered two VW Golfs for the same price - one was a 1.4 litre with basic options, while the other was the 2.0 litre GTi with leather seats, alloy wheels, metalillic paint etc. Which would you go for?

I hope you're happy whatever you decide.

:)

^Appreciate the advice mate. Ive checked and the TV ive purchased is a 2010 range. I'll be mainly viewing sky hd and sd and ps3 (720p). A few 1080p blurays also, however my current 720p lg plasma handles Bluray very well. 720P for me is perfect.
With regards to future proofing, well the future is 3dtv. Non of these tv's are 3d ready. I'll be looking to upgrade my tv by the time 3dtv is mainstream

Heres a link to the 2010 range http://www.avforums.com/forums/lg-owners-forum/1212857-summary-lg-2010-tvs.html
