Sorry guys, the picture has a 1080p icon but upon closer inspection I'm pretty sure it's 1024x768. Not quite as good as I thought but still, might help someone. Also no Freeview HD.
Yeh its Plasma though so still a very good deal. I saw this myself on ebay and thought ooo thats a pretty good deal, shame I don't actually need a new tv at the mo :-)
Wow! Great find.
1024 x 768 pixels is not 1080p, ad says resolution is 1080p it's not.
Good value, but sadly no Freeview HD.
this is basically the newer version of my TV from what i can tell.

(I have the LG 42PQ6000)

And I have been more than happy with it. Even though I personally in this day and age would pay more and get 1080p (mostly because i use mine for PC use as well as TV) , if you are on a strict budget for under £280 it is an excellent buy.
good price.
is this better than the £300 42" 1080p LG that the same company has on offer at the moment too?
seeing as plasma upscales like a beast for this price I doubt you'd notice a fat lot of difference even if the res is only 1024 x 768
1080p is where all the gold in the world is...

I know him personally, he is a millionaire.
Having no experience in the past of Plasma Tvs, or indeed a 1080p TV showing a decent picture (shops never do tvs justice!) would a 1080p TV be that much different to something like this? I'm on the hunt for a decent 40-42" tv to replace a 5 year old 26" LCD i have that is also 1024x768. HUKD conditioning say i should get a 1080p but is there really that much in it?

For reference i would be using it in the living room with a Tivo box and Ps3 games/ Blueray movies

No there isn't. They are just numbers.
this is hot for a 42inch tv delivered to your door for that price!!
My sister bought one at £320 a few weeks ago.

It's a crackin TV.
is plasma better than lcd?
Hi my friend has one of these tv and says there is a buzzing sound that he cant get rig of,only on plasma tv's check for info online before you buy. !!!!!

is plasma better than lcd?


they are very much a similar thing, each having their own Pro's & Cons, but the only differences i found that made me buy my Samsung Plasma 4 years ago, was that it was much cheaper than the equivalent samsung LCD model & you get a pure black colour with a Plasma as opposed to a grey washed black - I was able to compare them when I called into my local Comet store as they where side by side

LCD TV advantages
TVs tend to be inexpensive

LCD disadvantages
Less choice. There aren't many new LCD TVs with a screen size over 32-inches
Not as energy efficient as LED models
Picture quality often not as good - many LCD TVs don't do blacks well, so darker pictures can look washed out 
Wide viewing angles have never been a strong point of many LCD TVs either. Watched head-on the picture looks fine but from an acute angle images can fade.

Plasma TV advantages
They tend to produce deeper, more natural looking blacks.
Often cheaper than similarly sized LED equivalents

Plasma TV disadvantages
Use much more energy than other types

LED TV advantages
LED TVs are slimmer than other types. Sometimes they are incredibly slim
They are typically more energy efficient
A very wide range of sizes is available.

LED TV disadvantages
On some models, the viewing angle is narrow so if you are viewing from an acute angle you may not get a great view.

Ebuyer should be done under the trade description act on the listing for this TV.
FULL 1080p it says....eh no its actually 720p = 1024 x 768 pixels.

RRP £499.98 it says.....when LG's OWN website says the SRP is £349.99......

Laughable and VERY misleading information!!

Unfortunately for you, the relevant provisions in the Trade Descriptions Act have now been repealed and replaced. Mwahaha.

Not unfortunate for me at all, not buying it, but for people who ARE considering, its providing explicitly WRONG information!!
People make me laugh on this site, always moaning when a television deal comes up whether it's got Full HD or Freeview HD, and then voting cold. Remeber a Blind Man would be glad of this....8)
Thanks - gone for it and it makes up for the Tesco cancellation. Slightly concerned about buzzing but it gets a lot of 4 and 5 star reviews and is probably only an issue if it is in a bedroom or on the occasional model (why not send back if bad?). Looks fantastic aswell!

At 42' you will not see any difference. Plasma picture quality is better than LCD
Id love to compare this plasma beside a 1080p lcd/led tv of similar price. People get themselves all bothered about 1080p and then only ever watch sd or 720p through their Sky or Freeview box & modern plasmas don't use that much power, I think this uses only about 90 watts!. This TV will give a brilliant picture for the price & size. Long live plasma!!! :-)

I read an article that mentioned "clay face" but didn't fully understand what it meant until I watched the news on my mates cheap lcd.
That's pretty good lol my LG 42" lcd uses 90watts because I refuse to use the energy saving as it makes the screen washed out.
I agree it's bad eBuyer have plastered the listing with Full 1080p HD. You'd think they'd learnt their lesson after misleading customers by only publishing positive reviews and getting done for it.

Oh well, I guess this means they don't have a case to fight if you changed your mind and wanted to return it. Just say it's not as described
can someone please say how much kw electric use this tv if runs for an hour?..

update..

ebuyer just change the display picture. i think its not 1080 and they are lying... why they do that... im not going to buy..

shame?!

Its all viewing distance, of course its possible to tell the difference if you sit nearish. Plasma is generally better without doubt, but this person wants to watch blu-rays and if their usage includes hooking up to a pc/laptop i very strongly advise against a 1024x768 tv, i have one (this tvs predecessor) and for normal tv they are excellent but displaying a desktop the distortion is horrendous.
It isn't even 720p. 720p is 1280*720.

A TV is generally something you buy to keep for a good few years, I don't understand people buying the cheapest big tv and ending up with a piece of **** rather than buying a smaller better specced set.
I don't get why people are so bothered about the X*X or X*Xp etc.

All the reviews say it has an amazing picture.

Better than a cheap 1080p LCD for sure and yet people snap those up - even if they are an obscure cheap brand from Lidl that nobody has heard of!
Exactly. I'd choose superior contrast and colour accuracy over resolution any day. When you sit away from a TV you won't even see the difference, especially when HD broadcasting and consoles are in 720p/1080i. The only time I'd recommend a 1080p LCD over 720p Plasma, is if somebody plans on using it as a monitor as well...

Those complaining - next time you go in to a TV retailer outlet, look at a budget 720p plasma next to a budget 1080p LCD. You'll notice the difference straight away. Better viewing angles, more life-like colours, better motion. It's just a more cinematic feel IMO.
