If you're looking for a 50 inch plasma HDTV set, take a look at the sleek LG 50PS3000.
With its full 1920 x 1080 resolution, the LG 50PS3000 lets you see subtle detail otherwise missing on lower resolution TVs. Other technologies such as the latest version of LG's highly acclaimed Dual XD Engine give the 50PS3000 excellent levels of brightness, colour purity and contrast. The figures showing a stunning dynamic contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1 and brightness of 1500cdm say a great deal, but the proof of the LG's superior picture quality is in the watching - already the reviewers are proclaiming the 50ps3000 to be one of the best in class.
The LG's excellence carries through to its audio performance. Granted, a separate home cinema system will still sound an awful lot better, but the LG 50ps3000's audio performance easily beats its rivals. SRS TruSurround XT is a high quality surround sound effect processor which you'll usually only find on much more expensive TVs. Combined with the Invisible speaker system, you'll find it gives the LG 50ps3000 a smooth, spacious sound that's less boxy-sounding than many TVs. Added to this, Clear Voice II makes dialogue easier to follow, especially during action-packed sound tracks. Finally, if you're planning to use this plasma TV as part of your home cinema system, then you'll be pleased to find an optical digital output - perfect for the highest quality audio connection to your AV receiver.
In terms of connections, the 50ps3000 has everything you'd expect plus more besides. Twin rear-mounted HDMI (and one side-mounted) sockets allow for the connection of 3 High Definition sources, such as an HD-TV box, HD camcorder and Blu-ray. In addition to this, the 50ps3000 boasts twin SCART sockets and component connections for your analogue sources. Furthermore, the PC input makes this attractive TV the perfect complement to your home computer. More unusual but great to have is the side-mounted USB connection. This lets you watch digital media from your camera or phone.
Rounding off this perfect plasma TV is a cleanly styled cabinet and matching, swivel, stand. To experience the thrill of a big 50 inch screen, in full 1080p glory, there are few, if any, that offer better value than the LG 50PS3000.
