Only thing thats missing is FreeSat so this is HOT. Good price for this size. :roll:

I would question anyone watching SD on a 60" though. :?

60 inches........... wow!

I was looking at this the other week in PC World. What do you think the minimum viewing distance is? :thinking:

Great price. Heat. :thumbsup:

I was thinking of this TV for either the bedroom or bathroom. :whistling:

Viewing distance:

for MW2 : 10 feet

for Eastenders: the kitchen

I thought the EU res banning sunbeds?

How has this slipped through.
#10
I've got a box room ~3mx2m. Currently have 50" samsung which is not quite big enough. IMO viewing distances are bs. The bigger the better.

Right. My wife said no way. It'll be too big and would hurt your eyes.

I summarised and said "so 60" would make your eyes water?". She said yes. :oops:


Couldn't help but snicker at that one. I don't think she cottoned on. :thumbsup:

I find this screen distance calculator very useful is assessing factors
http://myhometheater.homestead.com/viewingdistancecalculator.html

60" is just about perfect for sitting 8' away - so remain very tempted except that this means dealing with DSG - my absolutely most detested of all vendors - if only John Lewis sold this set and hence could be price matched with them :x

RicherSounds do have this set on their price list, but not their website, but their price matching must include 5 year cover, so given Currys want £9.99/month "product support", ie £599.40 ie an extra 42% (as compared to RS 10%) that would make them a few hundred quid MORE expensive than RS for a price match - ie not!

PS:
I'm probably holding off till 3D standards become clear, and/or LED backlit and THX certified- eg the LG LH90 series which goes up to 55" comes out.

8 Feet from a 60"? Yeah if you have a Specsavers subscription that is

The REASON I provided the link was so that one could have a rational/scientific/eyesight acuity based deliberation based on movie presentation standards (and assuming people do have adequate vision, and compensate if they do not!) :thumbsup:

PS:
The THX considerations in particular should be relevant/important as one of the benefits of the LG 60PS8000 is its THX certification!

I like others use this as a reference guide originally produced by the BBC boffins.

If spending a lot on a new tv, then you really need an etended warranty!

If it breaks down after the first 12 months are up, then it can cost a £200/£300 for a fairly simple repair job. If the panel dies & you need a repacement after the warranty ends, then it will cost a good percentage of what you originally paid for the tv.

Just be careful if you want to play games on this as it has a risk of screen burn, for tv and movies, Plasma rules!

I read that somewhere too. :thinking:

You will get image retention for sure which usually goes soon after. Screen burn is highly unlikely even after 3-4 hours gaming. I left my samsung on all night 8+ hours but all I had was image retention for a couple of hours.
#24
distance depends on my eyesight...I sit just in focus without glasses which is about 5ft or so
from the 42 in lcd , just close enought to the fire
as i get older I'll buy a bigger set...same distance
buy the time I'm 80 I'll need an 80 inch if I live that long

boy-i'm going to buy a new house, just to get this little baby....

then again, i could use it as a dividing wall in our thru lounge...:-D

Apart from chavs, who actually would want a 60" tv in their 25' living room?
#28
Was round a friends last night, the've just bought a 40 odd inch LG, doubled with Sky HD, looked like a joke, for some reason SD looked poor but the HD wasn't right at all, the images where good but the motion setup was really off, kind of like slightly sped up. Imagine trying to fit a 61 minute movie into an hour if you will.

It was a 200hz LCD, unsure of the model.

I take it you must work for Currys. They specialise in the sales of extended warranty first, telly sales second.

This chart rules but assumes 'only' 20:20 vision. If you have better than this (most people do) then you can knock a few feet off. Wouldn't want to be watching ITV on Freeview less than 10ft away from this though!

Then you'd take it wrong. Dont work for Currys, nor would I spend lots of mney on an item from the DSG. Okay when taking your money but don't want to know when problems start appearing to said item.

It was a simple warning to people who spend lots of money on large screen tv's. For a simple problem when it's out of warranty, then your talking about a minimum of £200 for their time to diagnose the fault. Order the replacement parts. Fit them, then return the item. In this case, if that 60" panel goes outside the warranty period, then lets just say I wouldn't like to see the bill. You'll probably be better off buying a new such such will be the cost.

If it was me, I'd try & contact an insurance company ike Domestic & General. Explain you have a new tv & would like to take out an extended warranty on the set. Should cost half of what Curry's would want!

There is no 'best' really, it just depends on what your requirements are. Depending on what sources you plan to hook up to it, some cables can be hard to fit when using a slim mount ( - regardless it's generally easier to plug in all your cables before you hang the television on its mount). So personally, I went with a tiltable mount in one installation I did and a slim one in the case where I wanted minimal distance from the wall since the area had some walk through traffic. In the case of the latter, I was only hooking up a single hdmi cable to it.
