Cheaper on Amazon but they are out of stock for a couple of weeks..!

Never worth £699

More info please. Where about for £369, and what is the divx hack for this?
Thanks.

Scareyman see post 4. Amazon were doing them about a month ago

Igloolad - any chance you could enlighten me where to go for the Divx hack. Thanks

Post 4 looks as though it's related to the 37", as the comment re 42" was a few posts later.

think i ordered mine from currys about a month ago, with quidco and sales5 code got it down to 369, the divx hack is free available on internet, just look up lg divx or usb hack. plays just about everything even mkv

Indeed it was, but just your info scarey man I was one of the lucky ones to get the 42" at £369 on amazon so maybe it'll come up again if youre in no hurry. Excellent Tv - if I could obnly get to grips with the divx hack Id be well happy, seems a bit complicated without an LG service remote

aye the 42" has had a couple of offers in the region of £360 (amazon/Ebay DOTD), doesnt make this such a great deal imo as id hold out as LD series are always fluttering around this price, there really well reviewed budget sets though check this out if your interested:

reevoo.com/p/l…450

if your in no rush there might be a better deal just round the corner with these sets, you shouldnt do any worse than this price anyway

Is this samsung one better? not taking into account the size difference. its not full hd. which one do you think?

dixons.co.uk/gbu…-63

generally speaking the LCD will be a brighter set and thus better in brighter rooms, plasmas are suited to darker cinema style rooms etc often people say a good HD ready plasma is as good as a 1080p LCD, id say it depends

how close your sitting
how much you value your electricity bills
how much you care about size

reevoo.com/p/s…450

i think 37" will be fine, which is better for electric bills? but which is the better picture and response rate for gaming and sports

ud be better off with and LCD for gaming generally and an LCD for electricity bills though finding out exact response times are difficult.. ill give it a little search

picture quality seems a real toss up between the two according to those customer reviews.. always nice to have a bigger set tho.. tough choice, worth noting that the native resolution of many current game is only 720p or lower, though this will change in the future id of thought

cheers dude, really good help!

meh the only thinks i could find on response are 4ms for the LG and 0.00001 for the samsung,but i cant find anything on anyone complaining about input lag for either.. its a real difficult topic but ive played Xbox on a supposedly bad samsung model and couldnt notice any difference lol

139watt consumption on the LG
212-135??? watt on the samsung

i think these will vary based on the power saving options the both come with

incidently i just wanna point out that sammy plasma has 600hz which is a load of balogne, it interpolates the same frame at 10X the normal refresh rate making it basically only 60hz lol,

for those interested in slightly smaller sets there two pretty good options at the minute btw as i have been speaking to a person in another thread

full LED LG32LE3500 for 396 reevoo.com/p/l…300

Freeview HD LCD hotukdeals.com/dea…855

depends what your after

btw im not really an expert or anything ive just spent a fair bit of time reading stuff on the internet in the past and picked it up on the way, i find reevoo.com very helpful being as its all customer reviews and works as a great basic price comparison!

i used infra red port on my nokia e71 with a remote control program it tells u to download. i just put lg usb hack in google, it states its for LH range but worked ok on LD range. all info on that page.

That isn't how it works but yes, it is a ridiculously high value and offers nothing of significance.

surely thats it it just interpolates the same frame over and over again which when comparing 600hz to 60hz must be ten times the rate,

i know on a 100hz the tv makes up and intermediate frame to reduce blurring... to be fair this is all based on reading info youve provided me with before and elliotC definately knows about it best, id be interested to know where i have gone wrong in interpretation?
cheers

I thought I recognised some of the words! A 100Hz TV produces the extra 50 frames by interpolation (and possibly extrapolation, too). This gives the impression of smoother motion because extra pixels are created or removed during the interpolation phase to generate the new frames.

For plasma TVs specified as having 600Hz, this relates to subfield drive or subfield motion. The frame rate would still be 50Hz (for PAL in UK) but for each frame, each gas cell is flashed 12 times. Note that this means the same frame is flashed 12 times and not 12 separate interpolated frames. The ideology behind this is that it is supposed to keep the gas cells at optimum brightness but the desired effect is rather minimal or even non-existent. Some articles will state that this is a clever idea but most completely dismiss it. I certainly join the ranks of the latter.
