Are LG any good these days (considering they changed their name because "Goldstar" sounded a bit cheap & nasty)?
Have they improved along with Samsung.
I still think the 55" Samsung LCD/LED hybrid is a better option (even though it is £500 more).

:shock: Sooooooo tempted! :w00t:

Saw this instore on demo next to a Panasonic 58" Plasma and to my eyes there was little difference other than the £1000 difference for a smaller screen!! Both were awesome, but the bigger LG screen gave more impact on the Transformers demo they were running, and the LG looked a lot nicer finish-wise. Easliy as nice as the Samsung 55" on the other side of it!!

Just for info, I've seen 'image retention' on loads of LGs, I've never seen it on any Panasonic panel.

IR seems to be commented on quite a bit on the owners thread at AVF, however it does get a very favourable review from the editorial staff though. You'll get ten inches less for this money with the excellent THX certified panny. A very good deal nevertheless and if you're not concerned about IR / a heavy gamer this is outstanding value.

Have some heat!

1080p seems rather inadequate for such a huge display!

Hardly, even a 720p image looks great at 100" on a projector.

And what resolution do you think it should have then?!?!?!? :whistling:

Got two 1080p LG's and cant fault either of them, One 47" and one 42".

Both great TV's.

The 50" of this model still suffers from image retention, so maybe not one for the hardcore gamers.

LG is not what they used to be, they have a growing following and reputation now. at this price this is a steal.:thumbsup:

Seen a couple of LG tv's and not been impressed, thats putting it politley. Friends have also made the same comment about LG. Panasonic always look much better to me. Having said this £1499 for a 60" is incredible value if you're not too fussy about picture quality.

My mate has this TV and all i can say is that it looks great & for a 60" its a really good price. Can't compare it directly to other models but I will give it heat

LG was way a head of samsung in terms of visual equipments back in those days. They were one of the first to develope LCDs! BTW they both r Korean companies.

1080p is the highest available resolution on a TV i'm afraid! You have to look at how the system generate the final picture output. Contract/brightness/colour/stability all counts for a great picture.;-)

wow 60 inchers are coming down nicely.:thumbsup:

not woth for an LG. Dont be tempted by the size as you wont be able to enjoy the full experience of hd

I have a 50" LG TV and it's great, My brother has a 46" panasonic and he's more than impressed by my LG. I suggest going for a demo somewhere and make your mind up. You always have badge snobs so ignore comments about LG being rubbish. You can't substitute for inches :whistling:

Dads got 47in lg with blue tooth, the only fault i can see is that it,s not mine :-D hot

Man, 60"... really? Lol that would burn my eyes out after a while. That's a good price for that size and I've always been happy with LG products. Voted hot even though I'm sure most households would find that too big.

You are so wrong, the picture on this tv is amazing, not far behind the panasonics, just slightly weaker black levels. LG plasmas are now getting rave reviews, have a look at the 50" model review on av forums, better than any samsung panel at the moment!

It's a lot better even than last years model large screen offerings. For the price it is a really good deal. It's a little chavtastic. I would rather spend £1500 on a Sony Z series. Still no getting away from the fact it's a great TV for the price. :thumbsup:

Current generation of LG plasmas are really rather good, second only to the Panasonics.

If they were as good as pannys for image retention I might have gone for this. My 'other' tv is used 100% for gaming and the jump from my current gaming tv from 42" to 50" isn't enough, so I am patiently waiting for a bulletproof 58"/60". Anyone that is looking for a large TV for blu-ray and TV viewing then this can't be ignored as its amazing value. I just find it hard to recommend for heavy gaming.

avforums have reviewed the 50" model on their site, suggest people read it.

sure this is thx certified, that means its had to pass some pretty high standards, its not handed out easily.

missed out on a 60" one for a grand in comet a month or so back and this looks the next cheapest.

Just waiting on my student loan now ^-^

Does anyone no the power requirements of this set? I no plasmas typically use more than LCD but what's the wattage roughly of this unit?

I bought this exact model a few weeks ago, absolutely no burn or IR what soever, even if i leave the screen static.
It has an amazing picture on both SD and HD

Got you the answer though :-)

Kinda surprising one too, used to be even 42" plasmas used more than that, and a 60 is double the screen size.
