I've been shopping around for a new tv and have been suprised by the picture quality I've seen from the LG tv's. I've been looking at Samsung and Sony because I like the picture on those but the few I've seen of LG im really impressed.

Just looking for some reviews if there are any out there of the LG.

I don't have a LG but after a lot of looking around, I have just bought a Samsung LN52A650 52" LCD HDTV and all I can say is ...WOW!

Yeah that one's out of my price range. The local sears has last years model, which I think is the 630, on clearence because it's a discontinued model. I think the one they have is a 46" and they're selling it for $1400.

The LG seems like it gives you a great bang for the buck. I want 1080P and I want the 120hz refresh rate.

Are you looking to buy local? I ordered mine off the internet and saved $899. Shipping was free. Ordered on a Friday...received it on Tuesday...Great service! I only paid $1800 for a $2699 set. I looked everywhere and couldn't beat that price on a brand new set. If you want to try online...give me a PM.

I was definatly a sony guy until the last 2 years. I know the local audio visual guy and he puts LG in all his commercial accounts. He says they are built like tanks and have double the warranty of the others. Now I've been buying all LG and have been impressed with them.

Its much easier to ask for forgiveness than permission!!!

I'm getting ready to purchase another television and I think I am leaning towards buying a LG. They are really nice and I am a firm beleiver of you get what you pay for.

Are you looking for LCD or plasma? Reason I am asking is for the money, the current Panasonic plasmas can't be beat (50" 1080p for approximately $1300-$1500). Not to mention, they have the best reliability in the business (less than 2% failure rate) Also, they have for the last few years eliminated the concerns regarding plasmas (decreased life, burn-in, etc.). The new neo-pdp panels that Panasonic are using, are efficient and have a panel life of 100,000hrs as well.

The current LG's do have a darn nice picture considering the money. I wouldn't mind having the current 60" plasma myself. Whatever you do, head over to http://www.tvcalculator.com/. It will show you how big your screen is and advise you on what size you would need to buy in order to get the same size picture you are currently viewing on a 4:3 tv (if you don't already have a flat panel).

Oh, btw the Samsung 52" 630 you mentioned, is not last year's model, but is this year's w/o the glass front the 650 has. That's the only difference that I know of.

Check out avs forums for tv info. I'm a member there and you can find a lot of good information on that site.

I have a Samsung and an LG. I agree that the LG has the best picture quality. I now look at LG first for any electronics I buy.

I have an LG home theater (DVD player and sound). Does anybody know what the codes might be to control it with a Dish Network remote? I can't seem to find them anywhere. Bummer not being able to set volume with the Dish remote.

I had a LG 60" Plasma HDTV 1080p and the picture was nice. I also had a LG 42" and the picture was nice but not as nice as the HDTV one. I had a lot of problems with the LG plasma TV's, like the circuit board that turns the TV on and off died the first 2 months I had it. The power supply also smoked and burnt out and had to be replaced as well. They were both covered under warranty but I don't think a $10,000.00 AUD TV should do that in the first 2 years.

The next TV I'm going to buy will be the new Samsung Luxia UNB8000 Series. Should be out in May and I'm sure it will be clearer and better picture then their past top of the range LN55A950 series. http://reviews.cnet.com/flat-panel-...7-33490419.html

Samsung Luxia UNB8000 Series

Key Features

* 55" Screen
* 240Hz Refresh Rate
* LED Backlighting
* Slim Bezel (about 1" deep)
* Anti-Reflective Screen
* Internet TV Capable
* Built in Ethernet
* WiFi Ready (requires additional hardware)
* Advanced Dejudder Processing
* Energy Star 3.0 Compliant

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

Just found this on slick deals. This is a great price on a 52" Sammy.

Nevermind. In store pickup only and I don't think Fry's has any stores near NY. Sorry about that.
