I was planning to buy a 42” TV. Its wasn’t easy with all the models, features and brands. I searched over the internet and decided this LG 42PQ60R. The following are few tips that would help to make your choice.

Take a look at this very useful link “Plasma TV buying guide”

LCD Vs Plasma:

Plasma TV has many advantages over LCD. Most importantly it has better black levels giving you very clear picture. There is absolutely no motion blur while watching fast moving images like sports or action movies. And its cheaper than similar sized LCD.

Panasonic Vs LG:

I was bent to take Panasonic even for its higher price, as I heard that Panny are no. in plasma TVs. I had a side by side comparison of Panasonic and LG plasma TVs at Reliance Digital. I couldn’t answer my brother when he asked why shouldn’t we pick LG over Panny. They both look very same. I experimented with different settings, but I couldn’t find any negatives with LG. Panasonic has SD card. One of the most useful feature of LG is USB port which could play Divx movies directly without the need of a DVD player.

I got this LG for Rs. 40, 900 all incl. from LG Shoppee, Abids, Hyd. Similar sized Panasonic PV8 was costing me Rs.52, 000 with lower contrast ration, no USB port.

This TV looks great on my wall and has very many connectors on its back and side. The DTH settop box connects with composite cables. I purchased 2 cables. HDMI to DIV-D : to connect my desktop computer (behind the wall, cable runs through the wall, see picture), and HDMI-HDMI cable to connect my laptop with the TV. I use this TV as my computer screen and watch movies, showcase “My pictures” to everyone watching TV in the hall. There may be many new models with better features now. But, I love this TV and since August, when I first bought this TV, I haven't had a single complaint. So, if you are looking for a 42”, then do consider this model and you’ll not be disappointed.

One more piece of advice. All the display TVs in the showrooms are adjusted to high brightness. The videos you see are Full Definition videos and will anyway look great. But, most of the time you’ll be seeing Cable/DTH programs on your TV. So, I recommend you ask them to play some DTH channels or take your own DVD and ask them to play and see how it looks on different TVs.

I couldn't end this review without thanking LG for making advanced technology affordable. I would like to know if anyone is using any voltage stabilizer for this TV and is it needed?
