I know it's been cheaper at Curry's the other day but I decided to pay the extra £24 and get a 5 year guarantee, absolute no brainer, great reviews! Not interested in the whole 720/1080 debate the pic…

I have an old 42" Plasma LG

I went to look at the 50" and 55" options last weekend - not many matched the picture quality of my old Plasma, even after 10 years!! I was very disappointed.

Plasma is so rich in quality - I can pick the Plasma out of any display of many TV's ..... they are the very best and now so cheap as they are selling them off.

A bonus is that it heats the room in the winter - saves on heating! RESULT!

720/1080 debate

720p is fine, and that's all you will get with broadcast HD anyway. I have it on a 50 inch plasma and prefer it to the 40 inch LCD with 1080p, mostly because plasma is more vivid. But unless you have a blue-ray player, where will you get 1080p source from?

I have a Samsung plasma TV approx 5 years old and despite it being 720p the picture quality is excellent compared to many other non-plasma TVs, in fact I bought it in preference to LCD / LED TVs available at the time due to a better, although darker, picture in comparison. However my TV suffers from a common fault with the power causing it to switch on by itself, so be warned and keep the receipt! It's likely to be fine for this model, but better to know about this now.

I've had a Samsung 42" plasma for 6 years.

Other than the power button on the remote going, its fine.

It was the cheapest they did from JL for £450. This might even be better.

I'd take this over any £250 LCD. However time has moved on and LCDs aren't so far off on what plasma does best.

5 Year warranty is a plus. So thats £50 a year for a TV. Better than my mates monthly cable deal.

Plasma technology is still one of the best, the only rival is OLED.
I have a 50" samsung Plasma when I could of bought LED but when you saw the same film demo on each.. the plasma just walked it, the LED looked washed in comparison even that it looked excellent, the Plasma was so punchy.

My next TV will be PLASMA or OLED.
720/1080/4K as long as it can do progressive (p) it's all good.

I'm amazed how cheap big TV's are getting.

If you want a gaming TV there is no better for your money than... Sony KDL42W829 only 8ms of latency for £500....

Don't buy **** TVs please, most other TVs are 30ms+ a lot of these are hitting 60ms...

350watts is terrible!

Most LED TVS use 50watts these days.

Next gen console?

Haha, sorry that was a bad joke X)
#24
350W is quite excessive, in 2006/7 yeah but a 2014 model this must be a mistake. our 60" PS60F5500 only pulls around 110w (or there abouts)
#25
Plasma is not cheap to run!!!and they don't manufacture anymore, but its cheap
#26
I have the D model of this, so 3/4 years old and I don't think they have really changed it. It can play just about everything from usb, way more than my current LG tv. It plays avi, mp4 h264, mkv (even at a very high bitrate) etc.
#27
Heat for plasma, I've just bought another and am hoping it'll last until OLED drops in price and 4K's established.
#28
Look you might not be interested in the 720/1080p but others are the screen is not full HD

I went for the offer that's on at the moment with the Sony 50" tv with the free soundbar but I'd have jumped at the Curry's offer of a 60" LG plasma for £600 if they gave a 5 year guarantee with it. Had my current LG plasma for 6 years now and the picture is still fantastic.

Annual power consumption 123Kwh so not too bad!

So, based on this (i.e. your own experience with LG TV's), why couldn't you buy it without a 5 year guarantee? Just do it man, life's too short to worry about warranty length.

Haha that's hilarious. Thankfully it seems the wiser ones are online instead tonight. It's good to see a plasma post without the usual "need to re gas it after 4 years!", or "cold 720p!" comments.

Looks like a really nice TV in this video:

Which review "Plasma’s days are numbered, and you can tell why from this dreary, budget Samsung. Picture quality is disappointing on the low-resolution screen, and there's not much else to shout about."

Had to get the tv sent away for repair twice, it would have cost us £100's if it was out of warranty. Basically I spent £140 on a smaller tv with what I can only presume comes with an inferior picture because it comes with a 5 year guarantee. I was going to get an LG 55" 4k tv from Currys but pulled out when they would only give me a 1 year warranty with it

Power consumption of this is not horrendous as older plasmas, but still uses nearly 3 times the power of a similar LED LCD i.e http://www.tesco.com/direct/samsung-ue40h4200-40-inch-hd-ready-720p-led-tv-with-freeview/664-3543.prd
