i've just got the 50" version love it!

but you really need to ask yourself if you need a 60" as the 50" can be had for about £600 cheaper!
#11
:thumbsup: this place is local to me, all i can say is if your shopping for a telly make sure you give these guys a call, they usually always beat the competitors
#12
Electro centre seem like a great company, loads of bargains, very helpful, product was discontinued and the guy was more than happy to advise me on other similar TV's, what all the specs were, best prices, best deals at the moment, VERY recommended!:thumbsup:

Just what I was going to say. Amazon and RS have the 50" for £730, it's quite a price jump for only 10 inches.

Infact, it would be chav multi-tasking.

TV this size could do with super HD-there must be limits to how much yoy can stretch the pixel without affecting image quality.
Personally I would not buy anything from an outlet like this-I know I am biased and EC are probaly great but I need more convincing then a thread on HUKD.

got a LG - 60PS8000 60inch for under £1200 thanks to this site bout 6month ago. great tv. had a 50" panny which was great but the 10" is a massive difference. if youve got a 50 and see a 60 you will want one. heat added- great price

I must say IMHO they are a super outfit and well recommended, take a look on the AVforums I posted one guy ordered one day and it was delivered 06:30 the following morning.
They even gave me a free HDMI cable with the telly

The diagonal dimension is a little misleading. That actually equates to 1.44 times the surface area, i.e. almost half as much again.

If you've ever seen a 50" and 60" side by side, that increase in surface area is quite obvious.

Diagonal Horizontal Vertical Surface Area

50 43.57877686 24.51306198 1068.249258
60 52.29453223 29.41567438 1538.278932


However, ultimately what really matters is the field of view the screen occupies from your given viewing distance. You want enough coverage to ensure an immersive experience, but not so much that you can see the pixel structure or miss parts of the action because its too far into your peripheral vision.

SMPTE and THX give some guidance on this, including the recommended viewing distance based on screen size.

Ofcourse it also depends what you are watching/using the screen for. An immersive experience may not be desireable while the Mrs watches eastenders :). However, it's a different story when your watching a film or gaming (my 60" really comes into its own when I'm gaming :-D).

IMO the arrival of 3D screens (assuming they take off) will really drive up the average screen size in our homes. As the field of view the screen occupies greatly affects the 3D viewing experience.

Hope that helps.

Wanted a return on my Plasma I bought from them a few years back as it was faulty. Lasted 3 days, the guy on the phone said they wont accept returns because I must have made it faulty myself LOL. He was from India or somewhere out that way and it was fairly hard to understand what he was saying, I had to keep asking him how to spell his surname as I would have to call them back and talk to their manager. He then kept saying I was rasist because I was asking him to spell his name, he kept saying 'you are rasist' you are rasist - I am not talking to you and then put the phone down lol. - I got it sorted after about 2 months.

Stay well away from this company, weeeeeeeell away.

Been watching the price on this model for a couple of weeks now.

1st audio visual (inc VAT)
£1404.13
£209 five year warranty
Total £1613.12 inc free delivery

Electrocentre
£1297.99
£339.99 five year warranty
Total £1636.99 inc free delivery

There is also a possibility of 4% Quidco from 1st audio visual. Over the BH weekend 1stAV had the tv priced at £1363. Not on promotion/sale at the time, not sure why it has gone up maybe due to fluctuations in exchange rate or a typo to start with.

Will watch the price for a couple of days. Will probably buy before the budget announcement with looming possibility of a VAT hike.

eww plasma! c'mon the tech has moved on now LED LCD with local dimming zones can now rival plasmas contrast ratio.

They can get close but I wouldn't say they match a good plasma yet, nor can they match the accurate colour production or the way a plasma handles motion.

Once you're into TV's of this size plasma is the only real option, I don't know of any 60" LCD's that are on sale.

Given the size/price I think you'll struggle to find a standard LCD alternative. Let alone a local dimming LED LCD.
#26
Can this compete with LCD as far as xbox/ps3 gaming goes? screenburn issues, motion blur etc. I have a 55" sony sxrd tv thats great for gaming & would love to go to a 60" at some point but worry about the plasma issues.
#27
You won't get blur on a plasma, as for retention, it can happen but most plasmas are pretty resistant to it now.

CNET never mentioned this model having any problems with it in their review http://reviews.cnet.co.uk/televisions/0,39030218,49305400,00.htm

Only really expensive ones. For example, the UE55C8000 is £3000, 5" smaller, and has roughly the same APL contrast ratio as a typical plasma. Of course, top LED sets have great black levels for a black screen, but who watches a completely black screen?

Cheaper led-backlit sets offer no better contrast ratios than traditional ccfl-backlit LCD.


Anyway, as to this set. This year's LGs are excellent, but there are two problems:

1) The 500 series are very mirror-like, so are really only suitable for viewing in darker rooms. In particular, you can't have sunlight blazing directly onto the screen.

2) The 500/700/900 series atm suffer from several software bugs, which may or may not be fixed. Among these are raised black levels, and forced sharpening which reduces resolution. The 60pk250 doesn't have these problem, but lacks a lot of the fancy features like bluetooth/wifi/netcast/dnla and so on.

Last world cup - HD Ready - only (new tv)
