Cnet review : reviews.cnet.co.uk/tvs…00/

Its a great piece of hardware, I was blown away by the specs and the review from Cnet confirms the quality of it.

I know LEDs are hot right now and some might say plasmas are dead... but the fact is plasma produce the same black level as that of LEDs and most videophiles prefer plasmas over LEDs.

I am going to buy it as a gift to my brother for Xmas.. I think its amazing piece of hardware and if I have enough cash I will get one for myself as well.

I have one of these also, a great buy. HD picture is awsome on freeview, haven't taken the plunge yet with sky HD. We did sit and watch the first three harry potter movies last night through the Surround sound system we have connected, once again the picture was fantastic.

its awesome for the money, tho it was £649 at amazon when I bought it in sept

Whats the wattage on this thing?

dunno plasma TVs are variable. they only use their max on a bright white screen.
but the LGs are energy star compliant and have the energy saver button on the remote.
better picture than any LCD or LED, no angle problems, better blacks, no retina burning over saturated colours.....slightly higher wattage, works out for the best!

I must check this out given the very positive comments and actually judge a telly on what the picture looks like! (rather than try to make decision based on reading millions of reviews and getting totally confused / irritated by the plasma / LCD / LED / 3D etc debates). I have Sky HD and watch the odd blu-ray via the PS3 and must say I think my 37" Samsung LCD is missing something, not sure what ..... but it's not 'wow' - sounds like this could be..........

Great deal, great TV, owned for a few months. Screen is so reflective its a pain in the ass. Medium scanning (watching sports) some evidence of artifact. Fast scanning and HD picture is stunning.

Bottom line, Blu ray HD film enthusiast will love this, sports fans with bright rooms, perhaps not.

Best value for money TV by far, still.

yes this TV rocks i also have one and this is great, i also ran it in for 200+ hours before playing games for super long periods, i have played Battlefield Bad Company 2 for 8 hours solid not hardcore mode either so have had huds on screen and i put Orbiter on in tv's menu as i think it helps stop image burn retention is non existant virtually goes away super fast now like 1-2 mins if that and thats after 8 solid hours of static huds i will say the first time i played it for 6 hours solid i did notice image retention and that took a while to go away like a few hours was not bad and did not have the Orbitor on either, but since turning the Orbitor on for gaming it goes virtually straight away and i turn Orbitor off after i finish gaming too cant say how much this TV rocks it just gets better with age and after the first 200+ hours its fantastic as its beded in by then, also dont forget to upgrade the firmware when you get it, you will loose the amount of hours tv been running clock, but the benefits of getting better blacks and the fixed edge enhancement bug so you can turn it off now properly, cant wait till next year as the internet stuffs getting updated on it too as PLEX is comming in 2011 to it.

This is £649 at richersounds. Reserve it there and at currys who price match within 30 miles of store and give 10% of the difference and get it for £640. I bought one in september for £635 when the price difference was bigger.

I bought one of these from curry's when the deal was last on. Great TV, but have got a dead/flashing pixel toward the middle of the screen now. It's actually quite annoying and noticable given it's in the centre area of the screen.

Reading some of the forums, LG won't replace the TV if it's just one pixel.

Can I get it delivered for free?

Great TV but **** Poor Retailer.

Anyone that knows anything about Electrocentre on the Soho Road in Brum and frequents the AVForums will already know this.

Don't try returning your TV if you have a problem - my friend returned his after it stopped working after 8 weeks and was told they don't issue refunds, just offer you a part refund MINUS the usage cost you've had from it and was offered half of what he paid for it after just 2 months.

He should have been advised to contact LG to arrange for them to come out and repair the TV under warranty but it seems this isn't the way they trade. Just the heads up and a warning.

Also if you look around on the web this TV can be purchased a little cheaper elsewhere.

it does have wifi but you need to buy the LG dongle and only the LG dongle will work on it.

Got this a few months ago and very happy with it, BUT screen is very reflective so need a suitable room/position - don`t plan on watching it in your conservatory.

if not all, most plasmas have a glass front.. so reflection is a universal problem when it comes to plasmas

down to placement I guess, mine is placed right next to my bay window, so its not picking up much reflection at all, some people notice it more than others and tend to let their eyes ONLY see the reflection and not the screen.

either way, I wouldnt ever consider an LCD tv again.

I like watching in a low light environment, I think with too much sun... reflective or not, you are gonna loose quality..

got this tv, the image retention is a bit of a pain in the behind. with cbeebies on all day that silly press the red button image is annoying to get rid of.

playing games, very good but the retention is still a pain, f1 2010 lots of fun but it holds onto the speedo etc for ages after you've finished.

great value at the price, but I am happier overall with my sony ex403.

also the dlna on this set doesn't seem to be standard, its not very good and i've reverted to my ps3 for media extending.

Still worry about the image retention issue despite big improvement in recent years.

Additionally prefer to buy from retailers such as John Lewis/Richer Sounds/Costco where I feel any warranty claim should be easily resolved rather than the hassles you normally get from lesser known retailer.

this doesn't have dlna according to comet

i have mine setup with 2 powerline 200mbps adaptors and run PS3 media server from my PC to stream downloaded content to the TV. works much better than the supplied Nero Home

Bought this in Currys yesterday for £649 ( had vouchers for a previous faulty tv*), was £749 but made them price match richer sounds.

*(Any problems with tv's up to 5 years old you can claim under the sales of goods act 1979, my Samsung was 3 years old.)

no, not ANY problems. you have to do the work after 6 months and the onus is on you to prove the tv was faulty by design or manufacture. you'll need to be prepared to go to court if they dispute your claim too.

SOGA is not a warranty, it helps protect both sides. customers from shoddy goods and retailers from dodgy customers who impulse buy or misuse their purchases

In my case Currys took the tv away twice but didn't bother doing a report so in the end they sent me vouchers. Yes I know SOGA is not a warranty but it does give some protection against faulty goods after the 1 year warranty has expired.
Plus you have a manufacturers 1 year warranty so why would it be up to you to prove a problem after 6 months ?

after 6 months the onus is on you, not the retailer to prove the goods were badly made or have a manufacturing flaw/inherent fault.

they mean after 6 months of owning it in general, including within the 12 month warranty. so at 13 months, the onus is still on you.
