It's a gorgeous design and you aren't gonna find a better 60" for less than that...

Review here:

I've just seen the 3000 760p in currys with an upscalling dvd which I thought was amazing. At present I've got two lcd's but the main TV is a rear projection 50" Tosh which is starting to play up after 6 years of constant use. Is it worth going for the cheaper 3000 model to save 300 notes ?. We normally watch sky and dvds of a normal dvd player .



So about 10p per hour in electric!

I have the 50" LG Plasma 50PC55 and very impressed with it although it was £900 cheaper than this one.

This is hot, 60" for peanuts. Bargain

Decent review here, not the TV for me though as I use my plasma for 95% gaming and the LG seems to suffer more than most with image retention.…x-a

Cool, cant find it cheaper anywhere at the moment. LCD's are the gaming screens in our house :). But this will have a wii stuck on it ..

So you're buying a 1080p for a 480i wii :w00t:

I sure am :-), and to watch the odd program

what a deal voted hot hot hot
if only i had some spare cash

I have the 50PG6000 and it's a lovely piece of kit. Upscales lovely and HD content is simply stunning. I'm a plasma convert :).

yes, plasma is the way to go....but erm 60 friggin INCH....holy...


£721 with £25 code and free del code

This is a much better deal as it's around £1000 less and a 50" screen is still pretty big.

The same frameless design and other excellent stuff makes this probably the best value 50" around:thumbsup:

I'd love the 60" but £1000 more is a lot of extra cash to spend with the economy slipping down the pan - although being on the dole will give you a lot more time to watch it I suppose:p

I've bought two 50" Samsungs from John lewis for £700 each with 5 year warranty which I think is the best deal out there for the money at the mo (The second one was reduced to the first ones price). But as we normally keep the TV for 6 years we look at it as an investment for the eyes lol. Amazingly my rear projection is working fine this morning and last night so I'll give it a couple more days to see what goes on first lol.

Thanks for the help so far everyone

Got one of these as soon as it came out, and here's a review from someone that had to pay to get it and pay to use unlike the magazine reviewers who get it free and for a short period.

1) Very expensive to run (you have been warned!) and will heat up your whole room within an 1hr or 2. So make sure you put this in a very large room! The more people in the room the hotter the room gets obviously and you literally have to leave the room to get some air.

2) Once you go to this size, its very, very difficult to go back down, 42" is joke in comparison.

3) This is designed for pure HD, meaning anything less, Sky standard def. channels look awful & blocky and can be a real struggle to watch. Using this for the HD gaming & HD sport channels only.

4) Very, very heavy! Will take 3-4 people to lift and mount. Make sure you take out a 3-5 year warranty minimum.;

5) Without doubt 1 of the best displays money can buy. Its the 60"+ that are a rip-off in terms of inches per £.

size is everything
