Found 21st Mar 2015
just got this 60 inch smart plasma in dundee currys. The salesman said it was national, 479 pounds must be the tv deal of week, if your on a tight budget like me. i know it is a plasma not an lcd, but still think it is a cracking deal.. After reading comments I know you can buy 50 inch tvs for lower price and some.people like or hate plasma, the fact is i have not seen a 60 inch brand new or refurb smart tv anywhare online or in the shops at this price from a known uk distributer or even some dodgy site, that is based in cyberspace. That is why i posted the add and that is why it is a great deal.

Depends what you watch. Plasma isn't great for fast moving stuff

I play a lot on ps4 and watch a lot of footy.

no foundation in fact there... plasma panels "can" refresh a lot fater than lcd screens, it all depends on the electronics behind them

Any chance of a model number?

anyone seen this online yet ?

None in blackpool or lancaster. They cant even find a tv that size for that price. Dont think it is national

I have a 60" lg and love it. Great smart tv, however my big Sony LCD has a much better picture. It was though twice the price. Rule of thumb, you get what you pay for, but this is cheap :o)

It's not online probably a mis-price
But hey, great find anyway

Banned

copped at brent cross london well chuffed forgot about 02 priority

Just put in the model number and it was a printer that came up

have a look here lg.com/uk/…60V for the specifications etc

Good price for 60" plasma, nice find OP. Any chance you could post pic of the receipt for all the hot uk doubters?

Voted hot.

Two different styles of viewing. Plasma can give you better quality at low light levels, higher contrast ranges and a more natural picture. LED backlit LCD will give you much higher brightness for daytime sunlight-on-the-screen watching. If you watch a lot of sports a plasma should give you smoother motion but an LCD will give you brighter greens. For gaming, again you'll get better motion from a plasma but there's the threat of burn-in, especially if you end up with a crosshair in the middle of the screen for long periods of time.

Not sure which way you should go without knowing more about where the TV is going to be and how it's going to be used. I got the 50" 3D model of this plasma and I'm using it for movies/netflix in low or no light situations, looks pretty darned good when LCDs even on lowest brightness burn my eyes.

Stunning price for the 60"....bought the 50" for £399 from JL with 5 years warranty price matching powerdirect.

There was a deal for the 3D one too at Marks Electricals for £399, the 60" ones have not been this low though.

I think retailers now LG has stopped production of plasma will be selling off all the 50/60 PB660 (2D) and 50/60 PB690 (3D) sets over the coming months....great bargains too.

Over the moon with our set once calibrated...reports of not the best black levels are founded, however decent calibration helps, and coming from a previous history of LCDs it certainly is black enough to my eyes. My set was manufactured in November 2014, whether there is differences of black levels with factory calibration of the units potentiometer levels I do not know...

There is over on AVS Forums a thread on many a pot tweaker to achieve better blacks with these sets...however reports of increase power consumption and image retention or for that matter warranty voiding put me off. As said though I am pleased with the black levels on my 50PB660V.

Heat added, snap up the last plasmas whilst you can or wait years for OLED prices to drop.

Eh? Plasma cell refresh 0.002 ms lcd pixel refresh usually around 7ms on a tv.

Absolute nonsense

158w power consumption isnt bad for a 60" plasma screen.
Lg have stopped making plasmas to concentrate more on 4k and oled

Great price for 60" don't forget not every one is fussy as some here.

Depends what you are talking about....OLED or LED backlit LCD?

If you are referring to OLED....when prices drop it will be a worthy successor of plasma.

If you are referring to LED back or edgelit LCD then the best of them (usually high end sets and most certainly backlit) emulate the picture quality of plasma with decent localised dimming to switch on and off areas of the backlighting to try to achieve the same levels of black...and obviously have lower energy consumption and weigh less.

However viewing angles suffer, and you will never match the motion rates of plasma from an LCD set.

There are other considerations however with plasma, they will not suit bright rooms and most certainly are prone to reflections, especially these LG sets...if opposite a window you will need black out blinds in daylight.

You pay your money and make your choice though, its swings and roundabouts...plasma arguably still has the best picture against LCD sets for videophiles at the cost of room layout. The best of LED backlit LCDs come close to the performance with lower running energy costs. Once again though if you have a large family with a room layout that covers differing viewing angles LCD will suffer.

You have to weigh up the pros and cons of each, there is a winner on image quality with plasma..but there most certainly is more to consider.

I am thrilled to be a new plasma convert personally, and both the wife and myself are over the moon with our LG 50PB660V

I expect these will soon be gone. LG stopped plasma production last year. I believe there is now only one factory left making plasma TV's, all the big brands have stopped production

To be honest I was after a dumb tv, I could not match the price and quality of any 50" tv with the 50PB660V.

And to be fair I find netflix on it a positive, not only does it have a similar interface to the PS3/PS4, the tv has 5.1 optical out and saves me having to use another device.

Try finding a dumb let alone smart 60" tv for £479. If you don't want the extra features simply don't use them...at this price really you are not paying extra for the smart features anyway.

You must be crazy! Refresh rates on plasma is a lot faster than LED/LCD. Lg make their own panels and colour reproduction is nice. I still prefer older Panasonic plasma but the stupid market decided led is better

Very nice TV but still no match for a high end plasma.

Great price for a 60" TV in my opinion. Obviously not top of the range but for the price a definite hot deal.

The market did not decide LED is better (the misterm 'LED'), consumer confusion, ignorance and (at the time) costs did.....I will cut and paste what I put in another thread :

There has been plenty of chat on websites such as CNET as well as many a forum...

General consensus is cost of manufacture, peoples (dated) and mistaken perceptions that they have less life, still prone to image retention damage, gas leakages, *EDIT* and numpties like maximusro in this thread thinking they need 'recharging'!, and the key one which is not mistaken is poor energy efficiency (it has gotten far better but still in most cases triple the energy consumption of LED backlit LCD....which in turn has halfed the energy efficiency of the older CCFL LCD tvs)

Then there is the appearance in showrooms under bright lighting..plasma tvs looked dull in the unnatural lighting where the retina burning contrast levels of LED backlit LCDs in demo mode just makes them pop out at the consumer, giving the perception in the showroom they give a better image.

Also the clever marketing ploy of the term 'LED', people see the old terms 'LCD' and 'Plasma' and think they are buying into new tech, unaware that they are only to a certain degree (still LCD just back or edgelit LED lighting instead of fluorescent)..consumers see plasma as 'dated'.

I am sure more confusion will arise from the misterm of LED TVs when OLED become more affordable.

Cost of production, and consumer wane is its demise.....It is a shame because I would like to have thought it would be down to a much better rival in OLED prices competing in the same market....but that has not happened yet, and won't for a few years yet.

For now the consumer is left with the choice of snapping up one of the remaining plasmas, or shelling out a sizeable chunk of cash for a decent LED backlit LCD that offers a reasonable localised dimming to emulate the level of perfomance plasma gives.

Recharge? Ha ha.

HEAT.. Brilliant TV for a super cheap price!

Got one for a video project last year in the BF/CM sales [£595], has since been purchased by the client as it was better than their 55" led samsung, for what they were using it for...

IF you do get one, get the latest LG firmware for it from Feb 2015, this has solved a lot of the tiny issues, that you will find about LG plasma's of all sizes online..

Latest file is here [make sure you DL when gone to bed if on a slow connection as it is 700mb] for download

Very tempted to get another at this price + TCB/Qco + a voucher of some sort somewhere OR a very keen sales person in Currys who will give you a cash discount.. make this stupid cheap for a 60" smart tv.

One of the best features of this tv and most forgotten about is the way it can connect naturally to nearly everything, anywhere..

http://s9.postimg.org/p6qqzdyi7/screenshot_84.png

This is brilliant TV for casting Angry Birds to and even better for playing the old trick HD log fire videos on it, when you have a dinner party round and they say "Oh what a beautiful real fire"
