What's the position with Argos if it turns out you don't like the TV? Have you got a 30 day trial so to speak? If you can just return it what are the mechanics of sending back such a large item? Is it collected or do you have to pay the return courier fee? Would be interested to hear from anyone who has returned such a large item to Argos. Thanks.

Just been after a big screen to watch films on as i dont watch much tv.Also after a cheap PS3 as blu-ray disk prices are coming down,and will watch my fave films in hi-res.Nearly got mis-priced PS3 at argos for £229 but lucked out.Bit of an impulse buy,but at that price i havent got much to lose(Asda cheapos not much less and LG is a good quality make).
#17
Wow - looks like a great bargain and the techradar review seems to say its pretty good.

I've already treated myself to a leather sofa and now I want a flat screen for about £350-400 and was set on buying the Sony KDL32V4000 from Richer Sounds.

Do you guys think I get this one instead?

sooooooooo tempted

just buy it, try it out for a few months, then take it back and swap it for something better, or cheaper.

I believe Argos are quite good at that.

this must be a joke?
#22
Hmm

I have read on AVForums the sound and picture isn't upto much, but it depends what you're comparing it against. It is really cheap for a 37" HD tv and this is most likely the best deal on it.
#23
These impeccable video credentials plus the immaculate user system, smart styling and remarkably reasonable price make the LG 37LG3000 one of the best-value TVs ever made and a more than worthy set.

sounds like a bargain if ever there was one, just wish it was a few inche's bigger, now where have i heard that 1 before ;)

aren't you all worried that the prices of these TV's are going to tumble post-xmas?

Be careful of AVForum. I have had Pana/LG/Hitachi LCDs and Plasmas recently, and the LG TVs are great. There is a lot of snobbery on AVForums, and also a lot of vendor tie ins. You probably won't hear a lot of bad things about Panasonic for e.g., try and think why.

It depends on usage too. LCD aint great for moving images unless its some of the later LCDs. Or even better the new 6000 32 inch Plasma from LG which is awesome.

No TV will sound like a surround system, but I imagine any modern brand name TV will be more than adequate for watching Eastenders, or some bedroom gaming without upsetting the neighbors.

Absolutely none: Taken from another post of mine here.

Reasons why 1080p is pointless? read on....

People HAVE to have 1080p without knowing what it even is. HD ready is a standard meaning it has certain inputs and is capable of processing and displaying 1080i and 720p. But essentially HD ready images give 2x the amount of detail as a standard definition image in terms of resolution. 1080p is simply a higher resolution than HD allowing for approx 4x the amount of detail as standard defintion.

However lets look at what actually provides 1080p:

Bluray/ HD DVD - yep
PC - depends on gfx card but - yep
DVD - 576i ( or lower ) - nope
Freeview/ Sky / Virgin - 576I ( or lower ) - nope
Sky HD - 1080i - nope
Virgin HD / Freesat - 1080i - nope
PS3 / Xbox 360 - whilst both consoles are capable of producing 1080p signals, 98% of all available games are rendered at 720p or lower meaning that effectively these consoles are only running 720p - so nope

So currently only really 2 sources of 1080p a PC and a Blu ray Disk. In terms of PC usage i can wholeheartedly vouch for 1080p being useful - a desktop resolution of 1920 x 1080 as opposed to 1366 x 768 is miles better. But that in the majority is a static image, when images start to move the benefit of 1080p is almost impossible to tell until large sizes ( 50"+ in size ) and distance from the screen which needs to be quite close.

So taking that into account here is an average comparison to the 3 resolutions.

http://i34.tinypic.com/mbo8hw.jpg/

When watching SD ( standard definition ) on a hdready or 1080p screen the image needs to be "upscaled" or "scaled" to fill the screen, so as you can see the normal image needs scaling twice as much on the 1080p panel, as a result of this the image quality of a normal tv image will be WORSE on a 1080p screen than a HD Ready ( 720P ) screen due to the fact it needs to be scaled twice as far and all that information made up.

So as far as im concerned at the moment, 1080p isnt a benefit until 50" in size, you need the content for it AND it deteriorates the image. So IMO 1080p is a negative thing unless you happen to own a 9G Pio screen.

Dont get a 1080P screen at anything below 50" in size.

So what else should you look at?

well there are 2 options LCD and Plasma...

Plasmas :

Pros:

Perfect Viewing angles
No Response times
Generally better blacks
More "natural" Image - not overbright like LCDs are
Plasmas tend to hide all the "fuzz" associated with upscaled images giving a much better image on SD.

Negative:

Potential screenburn if static image held on screen for extended period ( many hours at a time )
Varied power usage - more on light scenes less on dark
Phosphor trails - particularly bad on the panasonic screens
PWM noise
Some screens can buzz.

LCD:

Pros:

No permenant screenburn
Cheap for higher specs ( 1080p 100hz etc )
Great for PC usage

Negatives:

Motion lagging - terrible blurring with motion
Viewing angles - anything other than directly infront of the screen gives a washed out image on older screens the colour even inverted
Image is far too bright - "artificial"
Upscaling processing always seems much to obvious on an LCD.


Hope that helps....

I don't know about returning it if you just don't like it, they may not do that. But when we bought a 28-inch crt tv (huge item), and there was purple all around the edges of the screen, Argos came back and collected it, no problem at all and refunded us, and we bought a different brand tv. We did all this within 14 days of buying it, and this was a couple of years ago.

Btw ive seen this tv in person and for the price it is a bargain ! :thumbsup:
#34
Does anyone know if TV prices typically drop after Christmas? We were looking for a 40-42 inch lcd, but could easily wait a little while. I'm tempted by this deal, but my husband probably wants to stick with at least a 40 inch.

Maybe because they make incredibly good plasmas for the price? I've had two panansonic 42 inch plasmas, my brother's got a 50, as have my parents, and my in laws have a 37. All different models over the the last few years. Every single one of them provides a quite superb picture. Much better than anything I've seen on my friends plasmas and LCDs.

Not a definitive test, but good enough for me.

Sometimes you find people say things are great because they actually are, just a thought.

For the extra £93 odd i'd go for this LG instead which is full 1080P. :thumbsup:

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/274527/lg-37lg5010-37-lcd-full-1080p-tv-49/

or even this 42" :

Plasmas have a time period on them before they die on your or you have to get a professional too fuel it up with gas... the idea of compressed gas in your tv breaking loose and you lighting up a smoke does not sound pleasant.

Plasma is on stretched screen, lcd is either line by line or double lines, pixel by pixel so you see detail like it was reality.
