Looks... good. Heat added

looks good, but to be honest i learnt my mistake after the hitachi ordeal

my advice is to actually look at the screen in the flesh before you buy it

Do you think this would serve as a good display for computer monitor / gaming usage (and a bit of tv every now n then)?

You'v e really gotta check them out in real life before you buy a tv. It,s like buying a bed, without trying it out, having said that i bought my bed online without trying the firmness of the mattress.

Contrast 800:1 Rubbish

Voted hot. What a great deal!! 1080p LG screen for under £500!? How can this not be hot!?!?!?

The dynamic contrast you see on the big brands is a bit of a lie too. Totally ruins the picture.

I wouldn't really recommend it for PC use as you'd get a similar resolution from a 20-24" display. TVs are a much lower resolution that a dedicated monitor counterpart. I knew someone who tried to use a 32" Samsung TV as a PC display. He had to sit fairly close to it to run it at any sort of useable resolution for work and it just gave him terrible eyestrain and neck-ache.

Stick to a monitor - probably the best solution.

Buy cheap...buy twice. Don't be fooled by these "LG screen" things. Most LCD panels use LG/Samsung screens, but a lot of them break due to low quality manufacturing, which this one will have. Check AVForums, the Vistrons are said to be good TVs if you can get one which works.

Did you not read the first paragragh of this thread?

I've bought 3 Vistron TV's this year, and all have them have had higher contrast ratio than stated, and pretty much everyone else who buys them says the same thing.
Also, all of them are great picture quality, and have had no problems with them.

I completely disagree with this. I have a number of properties I rent out and all have either an LG LCD or an LG plasma in them, as well as having the same in my own house in Glasgow and flat in London. In three years the only problem, I have had is with two of the remote controls. The quality of the picture is very good and the connectivity is second to none. I've been very impressed and happy with them, especially as they cost considerably less then other brands...

It's 1080p (1920x1080.) Thats pretty high. I have a 1080p tv and I wouldn't want a higher res. Most "monitors" don't go that high.

pretty amazing tbh, ive just hooked up an xbox via hdmi, it accepts 1080p (scaled?) but still looks superb

Is it maybe worth spending an extra £40 to buy this one ...

Lots of good reviews.

Other than looks, there's very little difference, in fact you only get 2 HDMI ports with that one.

it only has 2 hdmi connections, not the 3 which is stated in the title. cheers

800:1 has to be the worst contrast i've seen in an lcd tv, how can it compete with samsungs new 42" due for release this month with a CR of 1000000:1

Get real, lose the heat vote cold it will be the worst tv you every buy!

Get real?

Firstyl, like I already told someone else, READ THE FIRST PARAGRAGH OF THE THREAD!
All vistron screens now come with newer panels that have a much higher contrast ratio, and as I've bought 3 Vistron LCD TV's this year I can confrim that myself.

Secondly, please don't quote DYNAMIC contrast ratio's, they're turning into a joke.
Manufacturers are just pulling numbers out of a hat now.

Dynamic contrast ratio is NOT the true contrast ratio, the sooner people realise that the sooner people will stop comparing them....

Sorry I think you misinterpreted my point. LG are a very good brand and make very good screens and are also very reliable. The brands such as Vistron who use "LG panels" have nowhere near the same quality as the actual LG branded ones. They are basically the screens LG refuse to put their good name onto.

[INDENT]I think you might find that it is 'Phillips' that dont tell you who make LG.
Shall we start his convo all over again.. :-D

Phillips make LG, LG dont make TVs, apparently its suposed to be hush hush..eg Sky plus boxes...made by Phillips. although Sky+ remote wont control LG TV (at the moment)..go figure..:thinking:
[/INDENT]

anyone know the program code for these tvs? as i got the 22" last week but can't progam my 360 universal remote. I tried googleing it but could not find it anywhere.

Vistron :giggle:

I really doubt if its Philips that make LG. Philips are a dutch electronics company who have downsized their european operations and now rebrand many chinese products. Lucky Goldstar are a huge korean concern with a mass of factories making all sorts of stuff. Because there is still some resentment to japan in china its harder for japanese companies to set up in china where as Korea is seen in a much more positive light in china. Hence LG and Samsung have many of their own factories in china where as many japanese brands have products made for them in china by chinese or korean companies. LG and Philips have a jointly owned display manufacturing company but LG are the dominant share holder. I also doubt if Vistron uses inferior LG panels although their supporting electronics may be inferior to LG's own displays. Basically LG, Samsung and Panasonic(Matsushita) have huge display making factories and actively seek to sell their panels to other manufacturers. However price wise LG and Samsung are market leaders in this.
