If you're looking for a 50 inch plasma HDTV set, take a look at the sleek LG 50PS3000.

With its full 1920 x 1080 resolution, the LG 50PS3000 lets you see subtle detail otherwise missing on lower resolution TVs. Other technologies such as the latest version of LG's highly acclaimed Dual Engine give the 50PS3000 excellent levels of brightness, colour purity and contrast. The figures showing a stunning dynamic contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1 and brightness of 1500cdm say a great deal, but the proof of the LG's superior picture quality is in the watching - already the reviewers are proclaiming the 50ps3000 to be one of the best in class.

The LG's excellence carries through to its audio performance. Granted, a separate home cinema system will still sound an awful lot better, but the LG 50ps3000's audio performance easily beats its rivals. SRS TruSurround XT is a high quality surround sound effect processor which you'll usually only find on much more expensive TVs. Combined with the Invisible speaker system, you'll find it gives the LG 50ps3000 a smooth, spacious sound that's less boxy-sounding than many TVs. Added to this, Clear Voice II makes dialogue easier to follow, especially during action-packed sound tracks. Finally, if you're planning to use this plasma TV as part of your home cinema system, then you'll be pleased to find an optical digital output - perfect for the highest quality audio connection to your AV receiver.

In terms of connections, the 50ps3000 has everything you'd expect plus more besides. Twin rear-mounted HDMI (and one side-mounted) sockets allow for the connection of 3 High Definition sources, such as an HD-TV box, HD camcorder and Blu-ray. In addition to this, the 50ps3000 boasts twin SCART sockets and component connections for your analogue sources. Furthermore, the PC input makes this attractive TV the perfect complement to your home computer. More unusual but great to have is the side-mounted USB connection. This lets you watch digital media from your camera or phone.

Rounding off this perfect plasma TV is a cleanly styled cabinet and matching, swivel, stand. To experience the thrill of a big 50 inch screen, in full 1080p glory, there are few, if any, that offer better value than the LG 50PS3000.

600hz! nice heated

Only £60 extra for a 5 year guarantee (£1 a month)

In case anyone was considering buying from John Lewis for 5 yr guarantee I have just been told that they do not stock this and cannot get any in as they think it is end-of-line...

They were offering this for £599 at Bennetts when they couldnt get stock of the Samsung 530 last year. Decided against the LG.

Picked one of these up last year for around the same price (Comet sale with vouchers). Excellent screen, with good response.

I had reservations, since i havent had an LG tv before, and remember the LG of old (Lucky Goldstar), however decided this was years ago, and to take the plunge. Havent been disapointed

any reason why?

Hd Ready or Full HD? Says HD Ready on website....

Anybody got this, any reviews??

Also, what does the 5 year guarantee cover? Very sparse info on the website on it..

its also worth noting that the 5 year gurantee is refundable if you dont use it

See richersounds.com/inf…nds

Point 9
"We've the best value guarantees in the business. Our 5-year - refundable if not used - Supercare cover starts from just £9.99 and comprehensive 5 year TV cover costs just 10% of the price - a fraction of the cost of competitors. And, unlike other extended warranties, ours have been widely praised for their value in both national and specialist press."

it says 1080p = full HD

1080p I have one and im ery pleased with it very good tv pictue style etc well worth the money. You will find it hard to find one at richer they always put these type of deals up, loss leader so you get into store and buy something similar with more mark up on.

As usual the "Add to Cart" button doesn't appear for me.

People ain't got time to faff around small non-national shops looking for deals which might be available. This is the Internet. Richer Sounds either need to get on it or off it.

Worthless deal for most people and therefore no bargain.

Good point - went to RS once for a only store deal. Non in and straight away sales person was trying to sell me something else. First off he should have checked local stores. I went and have never been again. I did buy Humax Freesat box and Panasonic TV from John Lewis.

The refundable Supercare cover cannot be bought for TVs. The TV cover is not refundable (unless you terminate after 45 days, inwhich case you get a pro-rata refund).

Hd Ready or Full HD? Says HD Ready on website....


HD ready means it hasn't got a built in HD tuner it's nothing to do with the resolution. It is full HD.

I used to be a Sony fanboi too. Then I bought one of their 40" lcds a couple of years ago and I'm really disappointed. Lots of clouding and ghosting. I would not go for Sony again. I have seen these LGs and I must say I'm impressed but for £100 more you can get a Panasonic from the same place.

LG's plasmas/LCDs are a wonderful bit of kit. Incredibly well made and well thought out (you can usually tell as their remotes are VERY well made). Vastly superior to my previous Toshibas. I own 2x50" and bought several slightly smaller and the same for relatives who are most pleased with them.

Not that we'll be getting any off Richer since we are not of any value as non-retail customers. WTF does that make us? Chopped liver?

We are of no "Value" whatever that means. We want the finest TVs available to humanity. And we want them here on the Internet, and we want them now! :-D

Wow! Oh, at Richer Sounds. Oh well.

Oh dear.
Preference is largely down to opinion, of course, but I think most informed folk would prefer an LG over a Sony any day.
Personally I rate TVs in this order:
1 Pioneer (yes, I know they ain't making new ones, but there's no denying the quality)
2 Panasonic,
3 Samsung & LG
4 Toshiba & Sony
5 The rest.

Naturally that's a broad generalisation - some top end Toshibas and Sonys will beat some bottom end Panasonics, for example.

I can hear those unborn chicken voices in my head saying... buy buy.. an LG tV...thats what the lyric meant!...but I have to vote this cold becuse theres no way its a good as the weekly radiohead ok computer deal posted minimum thrice weekly on here.....:whistling:

I bought this last year from Amazon and if you are careful with the settings during the first few hours it produces a fantastic pic. On AV Forums there is a thread dedicated to this model and one guy has posted his settings on there. I copied them and wow.....picture is even better than ever. On a HD feed this telly will not disappoint. Verdict.....go for it!:):thumbsup:

Do you know what these optimal settings are and if you do can you share them coz my tv has (ran in) now so going to do a bit of tweaking. I bought this set the other day and am really pleased with it. I got it from Currys when it was £749.99 with £100 reduced, so £649.99 and used 5% discount code to make it £616.55 delivered so not much in it really but anyways. I have read up on it and if u purchase make sure u turn brightness, contrast, colour, and sharpness down to 50% for first 100-200 hours or so of viewing. There is a setting in the menu as well which allows you to make the picture move a fraction every so often. Basically all this is to prevent screen burn which apparantly is possible in new sets. Some people might say to me blah blh blah my set is ok no screen burn after having sky plus paused for 19 days etc but after spending my hard earned cash im taking no chances. Anyhow watched England game on SkyHD last night (itvHD) and picture was excellent, well chuffed. (yes u can watch itvHD on sky before anyone says otherwise). Everyone who has watched anything with me on tv has said how great pic is etc. Obviously you can get panny for another £100, whatever, but 600 odd quid is about what I wanted to pay. Espesically as I sold my rear projection tv for £200, result. Anyway, go and get this tv its well worth the cash. Oh and MW2 looks absolutely stunning on it.:thumbsup:

Wrong - HD Ready and/or Full HD has nothing to do with HD tuner (whether Freeview HD or Freesat HD).

HD Ready was the OLD initial standard with either a DVI or HDMI interface that accepted at least 720p with HD copy protection support.

The resolution of the panel = another issue.

As at least 720p support was inherent in "HD Ready" when later 1080 panels came along it became obvious to not just call them "HD Ready" but to say they are "HD 1080" panels and typically as nearly all of them cope with displaying the native 1080 signal from a 1080p source (eg from a Blu-ray player) to call them "HD 1080P" to distinguish them from their lesser "only" HD Ready sets, though they themselves are ALSO "HD Ready" as well as 1080p'able.

You STILL need to consider WHERE to get your 1080 signal from
- eg built in (or external box) Freeview HD and/or Freesat HD tuner as as 720p or 1080i signal
- eg high definition disc - Blu-ray or HD-DVD as 1080p signal
- eg gaming console
- eg video file, possible on a USB stick that might be playable from inserting into a TV socket
etc etc

That's my take on it anyway

As regards LG - have two friends, one with 50" LG Plasma of about 2 years ago = excellent picture; one with 42" LG LCD 42LF7700 with again an excellent picture both at 1080p and as upscaled SD TV via Humax PVR-9150T SCART (their Freesat dish for HD not having been installed yet)!

Problem is ... where to get one? Instore, yep, but which store?

Well why not ring your local store and ask them, or alternatively call their central number and find out which local store has one for you to order ?

Richer sounds need to make their site more user friendly - ie allow stock check on all models they sell. It's patchy, and seems that for most of these deals you have to phone up. You can't even pay online and pick up instore, to avoid having a long journey and finding the stock that you'd phoned up about has now been flogged.

Richer sounds do have some good deals, but they shoot themselves in their feet by making it too hard to get hold of their stock.

No way!

A Sony badge has technology inside that tricks the buyer into seeing exceptional image quality, rather than the average display shown

This same badge also applies to their Vaio laptop range, it makes it seem far faster than it really is

The consumer therefore feels justified paying a lot more and can feel smug knowing their Sony badge provides the best for the money
