is this better than a lcd?

Different for sure.

Power hungry monster too.
I personally will stay away from Plasma, LCD is better power efficiency and generally lasts longer.
Here we go again with the Plasma vs LCD debate! :p
Bring on OLED I say! :-D

Oh, and while I have never been a fan of Plasma TVs, 50"'s for less than £800 is stunning, it really was not all that long ago people were paying 2k + for similar.
Ah OLED, the technology of tomorrow, tomorrow. Whatever happened to SED? that was supposed to kick the ass off LCD and Plasma.

Best not to stir up an LCD Vs Plasma debate. Suffice to say they both have pros and cons.

On power consumption 291 KWh/24hr Power usage when up and running.

thats 12Kw per hour at my rekoning. Cant be right
good for the money tho

The LG is far superior to the Samsung Plasma!!;-)

The Samsung is a 2007 model whereas the LG is a 2009 model and it seems that LG's 2009 range is on a par with Panasonics low to mid range 2009 lineup which is quite an achievement.

The 50" LG is available for £699.11 from amazon:

The power difference will be less than £20 per year. LCDs lasting longer is silly, as by the time a plasma screen dulls down even half way (10 - 15 years), the vast majority of people would have gotten a new television.
I got the LG recently and cannot fault it. For £700 you are not going to get a better 50" screen.
Unless you are using HD sources 24/7, at this size it'll be plasma for sure. LCD's strength (sharpness) would be it's downfall at such a large picture, with artifacts and noise (ringing too) becoming more visible. Of course, it depends on your viewing distance. That's why the largest LCDs tend to be 46" and then it's all plasma.

Oh and LG over Samsung. Samsung's 2007 range often make people look like they are wearing tons of foundation.
I have the Samsung PS50Q97HDX which is only the 720p version of this plasma set.

I have one of those Green Efergy Energy meters in my home, and my plasma TV set draws around 300W/h.

I'd say it's on from 8am till midnight every day [sometimes longer]

.3kw/h * 18.2p per kwH * 16 hrs = 87.3 p/day [£318.86 p.a].

I have noticed a difference on my energy bills and recently changed to a new supplier suspecting they were overcharging me. Once I'd bought the energy meter and checked the usage myself against their meter, I can put the extra electric cost to the plasma tv.

Picture quality is excellent, but it's very energy hungry - be advised.

This says this model takes a ridiculous 520W

Not only is there the costs of this, but you also have to live with the sweltering heat output of these electric burners regardless of the weather.

The life expectancy of the panel is probably a red herring because long before the years for it to become dim the expensive dinosaur will probably have been scrapped as unresellable due to rises in energy costs and vastly more efficient new models.

Voting cold as the energy wastage is too hot.
