"For the money a wonderful feature packed display"5.0 starson by Karen4love
Pros: + Picture quality is wonderful
+ Colours are rich, motion is smooth and accurate and images are razor sharp
+ Sound quality is excellent
+ 3D glasses are solid and well built
Cons: - No have for now
Summary: After much deliberating and research I settled for this display after looking at Samsung LEDs and the Panasonic plasma units.Before you will buy this LG TV, I suggest you have to check for best deal at: bestdealschecking.info/50pz950
Both the other alternatives were nice but for price>performance comparison, there was not a massive improvement for what is a massive difference in price. As you can see the LG is available for under a $1000 when both the alternatives are way over in regard to the D8000 Samsung and VT/GT30 Panasonic(in the GTs case you have to factor in 3D glasses which are quite pricey)
Now down to performance....The LG is wonderful! Colours are rich, motion is smooth and accurate and images are razor sharp. My unit is used for movies, games and also doubles up as a PC monitor.
I have had no serious issues with image retention, however I am very cautious when using it for the PC, with a screensaver coming on after a minutes inactivity. But if you follow the recommended run-in period you will not have any problems. As stated above it is used with my PS3 and there has been no ghosting or any retention that I can see.
My only gripe with the screen is black levels which although good aren't as good as the Panasonic plasmas, which are inky black. However I can only compare with Panasonic display models in shops and I'm sure with some of their picture processing features turned off things may be a bit closer.
The 3D glasses are solid and well built and as far as is possible to not hinder or interfere in the 3D experiences that I have had. 3D to 2D conversion is all but useless but when some proper 3D material is displayed there is very little crosstalk. However for the really picky punters out there I'm sure you will find some.
Remember this unit has THX 3D certification as well as ISF calibration options which are not available on the Samsung and although the Panasonic have it they cost considerably more (If you are purchasing this TV I suggest you have to check for best deal at *********.info/LG-50PZ950 ).
You will not be disappointed with this unit
