No way, not at this size! Plasma always beats LCD hands down. LCD at 50" has a terrible picture! I'm sure many will agree.:thumbsup:

I chose LCD for one very technical reason. You can bore me to death with your numbers of lines and pixels, but nothing affects a TV picture more than reflection, even if it is only the Mrs lighting a fag. Windows? don't get me started on windows... ;-)

LCD better than plasma


If you like poor blacks, colour bleed and blurry motion, then yes, LCD would be the technology for you. Plasma delivers a far superior quality of picture than LCD. Just for the record, plasma has it's flaws, but out of the two techs, it is well regarded as the better technology. Only now are LCDs beginning to catch up with Plasma for picture quality, but these are expensive and so you might as well go for a plasma anyway!

I don't know why people are so pig-headed, on both sides of the LCD-v-Plasma debate. They both have their places.

- Plasma is the more established technology and has been developed for longer and is now at a stage where it is offering some great pictures. However, LCD started off slowly but is catching up. I'll ignore all the detailed technical arguments, of there are many, because at the end of the day it's about how it performs on a daily basis. The arguments in a nutshell, in general:
- LCD is great for games (X-Box, PS3 etc) and animation (e.g. Shrek). The quality of representation is brilliant.
- Plasma is better for motion, particularly sports and movies
- Under 32" LCD can match Plasma quite easily; upto 42" they can be an even match; beyond 42" Plasma currently wins hands down - LCD can pixalate, cause ghosting, cause shadows and so on.
- Plasma consumes almost twice the power of LCD
- Some brands are better than others, e.g. a Pioneer Plasma is going to be better than a Samsung Plasma, but is likely to cost twice as much.

So, in essence it's horses for courses. Both LCD and Plasma have their merits, but if you are considering a LCD over 42", go and have a proper look at the TV, in terms of how it handles motion and blacks.

That's all really, carry on.

At the best part of £1000 more you'll be saving for a hell of a long time if you're on a budget!

It's more than twice the price but it certainly isn't twice as good.

This is a very good set for the cash and there isn't a 50" LCD around that will bear comparison:p

However, I'd buy this instead at roughly the same price:

That is a good price for a good TV - I have the 42 and it's pretty good, no doubt. Better than the LCD I had too (Sony V4000), especially with games as soon as it was in motion, the LCD lost the detailed definition it has when the image was still. It's horses for courses but I much prefer the plasma image.
#18
I have a 32" LCD and a 50" Plasma. As said, there a time and a place for them both. I use the LCD for gaming, and my plasma for blu-ray/film and general tv watching. Comes into it's own while watching footbal in HD.

Good price for this plasma

The plasma/lcd debate is pointless.
If the screen suits you then buy it.
The price is good if it is as stated. I have a 50" samsung plasma, and love it.
The debate will soon be over as plasmas are being phased out. Not because of superior quality, but cheaper to produce one standard and r&d is cheaper.

Plasma sales increased last year overall... whilst LCD dropped.... Sorta says something and they are certainly not going to be phased out!

Cerainly is what you need and are after... however lcds at 32" are no different than those at 50" the tech is essentially the same.

Again with plasmas ... the 32" and 37" plasmas are not much technically different than those of 42 or 50".The benefits of a small plasma are exactly the same as the benefits of a large one. This is the same with LCDs, just that large plasmas are much cheaper to make than LCDs.


But a few differences:

+ Plasma

+ Plasma offers the most "natural" image giving a more true representation of real life.
+ Plasma offers absolutely no motion blurring because the way the technology works.
+ Plasma gives infinitive viewing angles allowing the picture to be seen perfectly from all sides.
+ Plasma screens have varied power usage, more than an lcd on a bright scene and considerably less on a dark scene, at the end of the day it depends what your watching and usually in many fims plasmas can consume *less* electric than the equivalent lcd.
+ Plasmas generally give ( not always ) better blacks due to being able to turn off the individual pixels whereas LCDs are a backlight in which its very difficult to block out all the light.
+ Plasmas and LCDs share the same lifespan

- Plasma

- Plasmas suffer from "phosphor" trails ( panasonics currently the worst for this/ samsung pioneer and lg screens arn't too bad ) with fast motion from black to white sometimes you see that the green is not as fast at changing therefore meaning you see a slight green trail.
- Plasmas suffer from a potention "screen burn" or "screen retention". Keep a static image in one place for too long and it can "burn" into the screen causing temporary or permenant damage ( retention is temporary burn is permenant ) this is due to the phosphors aging at different rates and if you keep a specific colour on one for a long period of time it gets "stuck" into the properties of that colour, this also happened with CRT televisions
- Plasma screens are typically very reflective since they are made out of glass, however many have anti reflective coatings and are less reflective than many LCD
- Plasmas tend to hide all the c***y images provided by SDTV ( freeview / dvds / sky ) so look much better for your normal television picture.

+LCD

+ LCDs are cheap and cheerfull to make
+ LCDs usually give higher spec for around the same price
+ LCDs are less reflective than plasmas
+ LCDs typically consume around 25% less electric but it does depend on content watched

-LCD
- LCDs suffer from terrible motion blurring depending on the response rate but even the best screens still suffer from this
- LCDs have bad viewing angles, anything other than straight on kills the contrast meaning that if you step off to the side then you lose black levels and colours. Many LCDs actually invert colours
- LCDs are typically brighter this is good if you like people looking like bright plasticine models however what it usually results in is a difficult to get a true to life image.
- LCDs show *every* detail good or bad. So they are excellent for a pc monitor not so good for a tv screen where most of the content is a poor low resolution freeview or sky picture.

At the end of the day, LCDs are better as computer monitors or long gaming sessions
Plasmas are better for just being televisions.

I've had a 32" series 6 Samsung (le32a656) since the end of last summer. I'm disappointed with its performance in regards to football. Only thing that stopped me from going plasma was the worry of screen burn since I planned on using my tv as a second monitor for all the stuff I download. I later heard that screen burn was a thing of the past, and the newer plasma's don't suffer from it.

Wish I had chosen plasma now. Especially since this is only £100 more than I paid for my 32" LCD back then. So please stop posting great deals on tv's, makes me cringe every time I see one and my wallet still hasn't forgiven me.

lol why is it this same thing keeps being said, was it beer talk that got this started? plasma is superior on 42" and above.
ive sat and looked at lcd and plasma in the shops and the one with the picture that impresses me the most is always plasma, i wouldnt buy anything yet anyways the new spring range is about to appear so there will be better bargains to be had.

some good points, but lcds suffer fro scrren burn / retention also don forget, my mates phillips one is absolutel foooked becuase of this.


after viewing many plasmas and lcds (and owning one of each) i prefer plasma.

my upstairs 1080 lcd is mint on gaming, but doenst come anywhere near the quality of my 6 year old lg plasma for normal telly.


am getting a new one so this may be the one for me.


coming back on point does anyone own this tv? whats it like?



cheers

This looks a good deal. However Pioneer the undoubted masters of plasma screens will stop making then in the coming months and will switch to LCD after August 2009, the various HD reviews state.

I intend to wait and hang on to my old CRT a bit to see what happens.
#30
People who think LCDs are better than plasmas are naive. ive got a pioneer kuro and the colour representation and sharpness is much better than any LCD i've sold at currys. LCDs are advancing but in bigger sizes but the bigger the size the more distorted the image.
#31
I've had both lcd and plasma and both have a place in tv land but in the end i settled for plasma as the main screen for tv,blu-ray and sport and the lcd i have upstairs is for gaming should i want to.

I considered an lg plasma but all the panels i saw in the showrooms etc all had images burnt in which were clearly visible when switched off.

My first plasma was a pioneer which was excellent and i would have been happy replacing it with another one but in the end i settled on a panasonic which is equally as good and came in at just under half the price of the pioneer leaving me enough left to revamp my amp etc.and add a ps3

You have a £2,000 set, the set seen by nigh on everyone as the best set around and you are saying its better than LCD's its better than every TV!

Generally LCD is better than Plasma at native 'high resolution' images i.e. HD content, PC sources; while Plasma is more forgiving to SD content while still doing HD well enough, although not good enough for PC use. There are exceptions to these rules e.g. Toshiba's Resolution+ sets but both are generally true.

So if your after a TV for JUST watching TV then get a Plasma, if you want to play consoles or use it with a PC your probably better off with a LCD what ever the size.

Then again people have there preferenced with CRTS, if you want a great big heavy , ugly xray tube with bad connectivity, geometry issues, lines down the screen and small visible screen size. ( along with decent blacks and good SD picture ) then i guess a CRT is for you :whistling:
#35
The truth might well be that LCD's and Plasmas were forced out 10 years before they were anything like ready to take the place of CRTs.

You wouldn't buy a toaster that was thinner than your current one but took ages and made patchy toast, but it has been fine for years to dump a good quality CRT at the skip and go buy a blotchy grey load of cr4p.

Am I wrong? :-)

Shhh, there are loads of people here that have paid mega bucks for big screen TV action, let's just all keep pretending that the SD picture quality is worth it; don't rock the boat. :w00t:
Plasma seems good to me though although I don't want a TV that big.

My plasma seems to do a good job with black levels, don't think you can get much blacker than not being able to tell the difference between the black of the picture and the bezel ? :)

I have the 42" LG (model 50) I believe in a plasma and am MASSIVELY happy with it. Great value for money great picture
#39
There is a setting I read about time and time again (especially on here) that makes LCD and plasma picture quality much better. Silly people, complaining about PQ, they all needed to sit further away!

Buy a huge TV and move to the other end of the house to watch it - where's the logic FFS :)
#40
grrr...why does everyone insist on discussing LCD and Plasma all the time - the forum is not about that!

I have the LG 50PG6000 after doing much research on what I could get for the money. I sit a fair dist from my TV so wanted a big screen and could not afford the 'top' makes at teh screen size I wanted.

I have compared my LG with Pioneer and Panasonic and am very happy with what I have - very good value and a quality picture.

BTW I regularitly watch Blu-ray, play PS£ and watch freeview and (at the dist I view from) am very happy with my 720 TV.

Hot deal.
