If I was Mr Logic (from the Viz) I would read the description and then vote cold :-)

What panel & processor does this set use? Is there a panel &/or processor lottery?

seems quite reasonable considering the 32" version is £300

£337.99 from electrocentre here

am I allowed to vote cold now?

50hz

Nope, i would only buy from amazon or JL as their return policys are awesome. I learned the hard way and would pay up to £40 over elsewhere just for the peace of mind. Go with amazon as if its a dud (buzzing 37" lcds is a common small problem), amazon would be better and easier to return to. Just my advise i learned the hard way ! Don't you too, a tv is something you can and should be fussy over IMO oO

50hz



and?

What is with people and the HZ ?
They have no idea what they are on about..

I watch ice hockey, one of the fastest games, and I see no huge difference between that and my 200hz TV.

Also while I am moaning.. LOL what is with 6,000,000,000 : 1 contrast, is this some kind of joke?

said this for other deals of the LD490 series, ive got the 42 inch and the usb playback is awesome, plays pretty much everything, HD mkv files, divx, xvid, movs etc, very impressive so much use to us!

i have this TV paid £399 before Christmas, great all round for TV and gaming... netcast ok, same on all LG, at this price the refresh rate is neither here nor there

Ignore the comments about hz, it's a good tv. Heat added

Regarding the refresh rate - 50Hz.

Perhaps it different for the fat TVs but I had a Philips 100Hz and which was replaced with Sony 50Hz. The difference was immense. I found it almost difficult to watch the Sony.

Maybe, for the new slim TV's it's not much of a problem. If I was buying a new TV, I certainly would look into a TV with higher refresh rate.

Anyway, that's my 2 cents worth.

Bargain for the money.

Got this for £339.98 from amazon because it has been cheaper. Really good TV for the price though.

Perhaps it different for the fat TVs



Same doesn't apply with Flat Screens, CRTs have a flicker that at 50Hz is noticeable to the human eye. On a flatscreen there is no flicker only motion blur...

I just got this TV for the spare room, its not a patch on my Panasonic 42G20B, but for the price its excellent.

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRGGHHHHHHHH, im buying to many tv's because of this site !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tempted as it'd directly replace my wall mounted 37" which has a scratch on it thanks to my 2 year old lad. plus its only 720p and the blacks on it are lame. Plus its almost 3 years old.

I would expect a mstar (its the inferior one out of the 2 that can come in the c530)

and either a A-MVA or IPS but i would expect a A-MVA in the 37" like samsung use in their 37".
The ld490 is the same as the ld450 with a few more features unlike the c530/c580 where the c580 is superior. In theory the c530 normally comes with the better of the 2 processors so it would mostlikely be inferior in processor to the c530.

I've been looking myself and its hard for me to choose.

Hope this helps you

SOunds like you want the 40" c580 if you want decent blacks..... as long as you don't want to use it for 30 mins plus aday as a monitor you won't beat it for value.

I got this from Richer sounds before Christmas at £399. Even at that price still consider it great value for money - the media file capabilities are great (plays everything! - a rarity with most sets), sees my DLNA enabled laptop over my home network no problem + iPlayer integration. At the amazon price I'd stop worrying about the refresh rate!

any good websites to read about all different TV technlogies? at a summary level

I bought that TV for £299.00 from electro-centre 2 weeks ago. I think the code that was meant to be for the TV when it was priced at £379.00 applied to the TV when it was marked down to £339.00. They didn't mention a thing about the price and I got the TV delivered 2 days later at no extra charge. I don't know what their returns policy is like but I doubt I will be needing it, as the TV works perfectly and I am happy with the results. I would also recommend buying from electro centre as they don't charge for delivery and they deliver fast, unlike Amazon where, at times, you have to wait up till 4-6 weeks. This is the link to the Electro Centre deal.

It says 1 to 2 months delivery time. Why am I mental? I think you are rude and very inappropriate.

Mine was delivered yesterday and have to say im impressed with it so far. Downsized from a sammy 40" with no regrets at all.
