    LG 42PC1DV review

    LG'S 42in plasma screen wears its main attraction on its sleeve - for its £950 launch price makes it a new member of the extremely small sub-£1,000 42in plasma club - and quite possibly one of the bargains of the year

    Plenty of its rivals have their charms, admittedly, but this LG is the supermodel of the pack. It's partly because of the glamour of its high-gloss finish, partly because of the eye-catching 'block' stand connection

    Generally, our opinion is that Samsung currently makes the prettiest TVs around. But we have to say that Korean neighbour LG has pushed Samsung pretty hard with its new 32in 32LB1DB

    The 50-PC1D is fully HD-ready, equipped with a digital tuner, and can now be found online for under £1,500, as it's set to be replaced by an upgraded model (the 50-PC5D) any day now

    We certainly can't accuse this LCD TV of lacking instant impact. There's its bolshy, all-black livery, offset by a daring, blue neon strip that ensures it leaves its mark on any room

    Talk about wearing your heart on your sleeve. LG's 32LB1DB has not one but two instant, stop-punters-in-their-tracks claims to fame: its astoundingly affordable £850 price tag, and its drop dead gorgeous looks

    With many 42in plasma TVs still costing north of £2k, LG's decision to launch a £2k 50in model is guaranteed to turn a few heads. But is it really the bargain it first appears? It doesn't look cheap, at least.

    We're used to wireless internet access: but how about wireless TV viewing? This 15in LCD TV from LG is set to transform your viewing habits. If you stretch the defi nition of wireless' a little, that is.

    When Samsung blew the established big-screen pricing order out of the water with its £2,000 50in plasma PS50Q7HD TV in HCC #133, it was only be a matter of time before other manufacturers followed their lead.

    If you thought LG only promoted LCD these days, think again. Here we have not only a 42-inch plasma TV, but one boasting a new technology and features galore. The 42PC1D continues the brand's current rich vein of design-form...

    The 15LW1R may be able to display pictures from set-top boxes, a DVD player and even from a PC without the use of cables, but it's not completely wireless. The TV itself, a 4:3 affair with speakers on its sides...

    There's nothing about the 26LC2R's exterior that gives away its budget heart. Its matt black fascia, offset by a rounded silver strip under the screen actually looks quite snappy. The set is also HD Ready despite its price

    With LCD increasingly muscling in on the 42-inch patch traditionally occupied by plasma, it's nice to see LG's latest plasma fighting back. The slick-looking 42PC1D combines a low price of £1,500 with a more than healthy features list.

    But as sound comes second to pictures when you're looking for a great TV, the 42LC2D's relative audio strengths make its picture flaws even tougher to take. A year ago this would have ruled, but there's stiffer competition today.

    f you're after a purely hi-def machine, LG's 50PY2R is a great looking, great performer. Only the extent of its quality reduction with standard definition and the price tag give pause for thought.

    Ultimately, while it's hard to imagine anyone who buys a 32LC2D being disappointed with it, the fact is that this LCD TV's performance can be marginally bettered elsewhere.

    There should be no surprise that this 50in plasma doesn't do terribly well with pictures from its two analogue TV tuners - an odd feature in itself. Stretched and noisy on this massive screen, it's best to stick with HDTV if possible ...

    With LG now offering 42-inch LCD TVs, there's more pressure than ever on the company's new plasma-based 42PC1D to keep the plasma flag flying in defiance of the LCD onslaught.

    Finding a TV this good as this one, yet costing so little is a rare event. We've given this plasma a £1,300 price tag, but it can be found for £1,050 from some online retailers.This gets you a pleasant-looking slab of technology to stick on your wall.

    At fi rst glance, we thought we'd accidentally got one of Sony's new Bravia LCDs out rather than LG's 37LC2D. But no; the logo under the screen definitely reads LG.

    Plasma TV technology is taking blow after blow from LCD. This 37in LCD panel is available for under £1,400, well below what we'd expect to pay for even the lowest-priced 37in plasma. But does it pack a punch?
