Always wanted a 50" telly.
#3
By the time I get one (around christmas time) I'm thinking it will be around £600 for a decent 50" tv. Loving it!

Am I right in thinking that this TV doesn't have audio out (analogue) for most amps, only digital?

Can't understand anyone buying from a company that doesn't give 5 year guarantees.. they are a must for Teles.
#6
Hot for me as I'm looking for a 50 inch. It was £724.95 at Richer Sounds which is a bit more expensive but they are always cheaper on their 5 year warranties than anyone else. So, overall, may be better value.

Why?

If the TV doesn't go wrong in the first few weeks of use, then its likelihood of doing so is reduced over time - that is because modern electronics are much more reliable than in times past.

There are Euro regs covering a manufactures liability for two years and the SOGA potential to sue if the TV fails to last a reasonable time period, (up to 6 years), so it really isn't an issue.

If it's a good set, then go for the cheapest price regardless:thumbsup:

LG Customer Service is hopeless and non existent and calls are routed overseas when I last had an issue.

They wouldnt sort the issue out so sent them a claim via the courts in the end, they responded to that by offering a set of my choice and also kept the old one and had it repaired...

Never let these electronic giants/retailers get away with taking our hard earned cash...Samsung is better quality in my opinion.

If you insist :-)

That's not its contrast ratio. That's the meaningless dynamic contrast ratio, which is entirely unreltated.

PLasmas don't need to do this sort of spec fakery, they have high enough native contrast not to need - you actually get a better picture by turning off the default dynamic contrast, idiotically.

So, you're suggesting don't buy LG 'cos you've had a bad customer service experience when the majority of people will probably not need customer service at all? And in any event you got a more than fair resolution so how was that bad customer service?:? FFS!

Apparantly you can turn on 50ps6000 settings if you go into the firmware.

Wether this give you the 20 calibration settings I do not know.

You got a link for that?

I've got this telly, seems great to me...even upscales sd sky suprisingly well - had a cheapo 42" lcd and that was rubbish with SD. You still see the odd fragments, squares, etc - but they're barely noticeable, considering it's 50".

The usb mp3 and jpg viewing is quite good, remotes a bit rubbish. The stand allows you to swivel the telly without moving the stand. Ps3 looks great on it (remember games are only 720p, though).... tahts all I can think of.

If you do a search on avforums you will find it, remember to set it back if you ever have problems though.

I however am biting the bullet and buying the sexier 50ps7000 which works out at £910 ish.
It may even deserve a posting of it's own.

Nice one, found it - and enabled it.

I was more interested int he divx playback, rather than the callibration settings.

Not tried the divx stuff yet, but the options appeared on the menu.

Just had a look, the expert mode now has around 25 settings on it - not sure how many it had before i made the change.

I've also changed the XD on, not had chance to see what difference it has made yet - theres a LOT of other settings in there, that i've not messed with, and probably never will!

I did notice that before I made the change, the menus were slightly dithered, and moving (when you get close), now they're solid. got to check this out on the ps3 also, it used to do a similar thing on dark areas - thought it might be to avoid screen burn, but i dont really know. It never really bothered me as when you sit 4'+ away you couldnt see it anyway.

How good is this TV for mostly SD TV terrestrial and freeview viewing?
Some satellite viewing too, and the rest via a DVD player.

Is this TV overkill, and should I be looking at the cheaper 720p version?

I'm not an expert (although I have this telly):

I think when you blow up SD content 40"+, especially sky, it'll never be perfect, it'll always look better on small tellies. However, I've only got 2 big tv's to compare against and this LG 50" fares better than a cheapo argos 42" for SD content - the compression is far less obvious. If you read about plasmas, etc, most people say that plasmas are better when viewing SD content > 40" and I agree.

I only got it because I wanted 1080p to be futureproof, however there is really ONLY 2 source of 1080p material, which is blu-ray movies and raw PC input (via hdmi preferably) - everytihng else is 720p or less (including xbox 360 and ps3 games). So I would guess that a 720p telly would be best for the majority of viewing, for most people.

Also, 1080p NEEDS to be viewed at 5/6' or less to fully appreciate it.

I did find that for the price/size/features, this tv was very good value for money compared to the rest of the market. I really only wanted to pay £400 for a 40" tv - but that puts you in the budget market, so ended up spending £700 for a 50" named brand and am currently very happy with it.

Also worth noting, that if you intend to watch divx movies on it, you need a decent bitrate, or it'll look a bit ropey on any telly - so go for the 2 disk rips, rather than the single disk rips. But, you shouldnt really be getting a telly like this for divx rips, you should be looking for hd rips.... so people who buy a 50" tv and sav divx looks a bit crap - what are you thinking?

I find the dound from it fine, plenty loud enough and good enough quality - try switching the sound modes if you dont like the defaults - obviously an amp is preferable.

(btw, you can get lots of 720p projectors for this price or less... if you have the room for it and can get it really dark - i've got a Sony HS50 (or is it 60) and play on a 10'+ screen.... best gaming experiance you'll get).
banned#26
Thanks for the info.
I think I'll got for the 720p LG 42PQ6000 instead.
It's probably more appropriate for my needs (Though smaller).
#27
Can anybody help me when I ask whether or not this would be a good TV to have if I only use HDMI connectivity on it, as I would only use it for a PS3 and Xbox 360.... I'm tempted by this or to wait until a Panasonic Viera which is 1080p drops in price...

.....and BBC/ITV HD, as well as all Sky HD.

Don't get a 50" telly if you're going to watch much SD though, there just isn't the detail or bitrate to stretch over a set this size. You can just about get away with decent quality DVD, but anything broadcast is going to be pretty poor.

I have an optoma hd65 720p projector, SD looks absolutely terrible when blown up to 80" lol.

How was it bad customer service? He had to take court action you moron. Jesus, the IQ of some people on here still never fails to amaze me. :w00t:

You never know if or when you will ever need tech support froma company you purchase from... and i'd rather have the backing of something decent when buying a set.
#31
I was looking at this set yesterday, but thought, 'well my current set still works, wait for it to go and then go and buy whatever is best on offer at that point' ...

... well guess what??

My LG 44inch DLP Rear Projector went for the last time today <

So I guess that means it is buy a Tele time :w00t::w00t:

I mainly use the tele to watch Football. I currently have Sky+ but would look at getting SkyHD to watch Sky Sports. Other than that I tend to watch News, Music Channels and the Beeb.

I have a 360 and Wii but spend about an hour a month on them.

I tend to watch the tele about 2 metres away

What do you guys think of this tele for my usage?

I was looking at the LED TV's for £1250 but have seen a review which suggests it is not that good.

Also in Comet I saw the LED next to the LCD showing the same DVD. Looked identical which has left me unsure.

You're being the moron, moron. :p

You don't know anything about anything to do with what he posted. What problems did he actually have? ( I say "he" but equally, it could be "she".)

It could be just a pile of BS on the poster's part. Technology and idiots seem to go hand-in-hand.

Still, he says that the company resolved the issue. That's customer service - a resolution.

Taking "court action" is easy for a consumer in the small claims court but If they'd fought his "court action" then he'd have something to beef about 'cos they have deep pockets and clever lawyers

But they didn't. The issue, whatever it was, ended up being resolved.

will this TV work in Ireland?

No one works in Ireland even me.

It should have a UHF / VHF analogue tuner, all tellys come with that these days.

It's actually just about ok, as that's approx the sort of angle a 1080p set is designed for. For 20/20 about 2.25m is probably ideal though - see here for the BBC research a while back....

http://www.burnyourbonus.info/hdtv-faq/faq3.html

(factors in your eyesight, which is often ommitted)

If you do have better eyesight than 20/20, and need to sit at 2m cos of the size of the room, going for a smaller telly (say a 42") will actually improve the picture quality for you.

hot deal
#39
I actually ordered one of these last thu, paid £703 got on 6 months interest free and am gonna pay £100 odd a month back. Great deal, also available on 11 months interest free. Gets delivered tomorrow!
Some similar prices elsewhere but also going for £999 on PC World and Currys websites and £999 instore at currys.
#40
is the 50PS6000 any better or is it just a few extra connections that it has?

you can get it for £899.99 at Cdiscount but they also offer 20% credit back onto your account for TV's at the moment. That gives you the TV for £719.99 (+ £9.99 del) with £180 credit to your account

I know it's not a great deal but maybe it's well worth the extra £30 or so to get the additional features. I can't see this TV for anywhere near £720 even less than £800. So even if you still have to spend £909 in total, you still have £180 credit to spend afterwards. Although in reality you are spending around £80ish if you take into consideration the cheapest you can get the 50PS6000 elsewhere. £80 for £180 credit isn't too bad if you were looking at one of these TV's

p.s. isn't it 4% from Topcashback also so that could possibly be another [email protected] or [email protected] back?
