LG any good for plasma?
Hi all,

Gonna be buying a 50-60" plasma in the next month or so and have been looking at 6-Series Sammies and G-Series Pannies so far. But just wanted to ask among those of you more experienced with such things, are there any good LG plasmas that are worth considering in the same quality/price range as the Sammies and Pannies I'm already looking at?

they have decent units,best thing to do is compare them in the store side by side. just make sure they dont use the poor cable trick on you ;)

now, would i chose an lg over a pana at the same exact price? heck no.

Panasonics are probably the best for plasma but if you are getting one make sure you get a higher end model. I bought a U series 50 inch with 1080p and the dam screen was so reflective all I could see was the room around me instead of what I was trying to watch. Exchanged it for an lcd last night.

Yeah - I've seen both the ones I'm interested in in-store, and the G-series is a couple notches up the totem poll from the U-series. By no means is it higher-end, though. More like upper-mid range.

i recently picked up a panny plasma for my parents for Christmas. Pretty decent price around $800 (on sale, reg 1099). it was the 42S2 series. Been happy with it so far. Though personally i will never own a plasma or lcd tv. HD Projector all the way baby for me :biggrin:

A few Pioneer Elites can be found in Montreal. Audio Club and Duocom (amongst others) still carry them.

My parent bought a LG Plasma but I can't remember which one. It's actually a very good unit. The only down point is that like many plasma it seriously suck for reflection...That's why I prefer LCD.

I've had a LGPK550 for about 4 months. It's a great unit and has had positive mention in various places including avsforum, where it's been stated that it apparently doesn't suffer (at least as severely) from degrading black levels as some panasonic units in the same price range. Just do some research on the particular model you are interested in and you should be good, not all of LGs products are equal in quality, that's for sure.
