Help me decide: LG, Panasonic, Samsung


Standard Member
Hello. Im deciding between these:

LG 50PV350
Panasonic TX42G30E
Samsung PS51D530

My priorities (in that order):
1. Gaming
2. HD Movies
3. Sports broadcast

Im from Europe. Which would you pick?

I would pick the Panasonic. Although i would add the 42ST30 to that list.
Whats your budget?


Standard Member
Yeah, I was considering the ST30 too, since its around the same price as the G30. Im not interested in 3D and I got the impression that the G(T) models are higher level (better equipped and with more settings) than the S(T) models (also Im aware of the anti glare coating on ST models). But Ill be more than happy to be proven wrong. My budget is €600 ($800, £520).

Well you'd be right, but its a bit of a +/- with ST and G
With the ST, you get 3D and the better filter (so better contrast, less glare)
With the G you get THX preset, more calibration controls and can record to a USB. Also i cant remember if the G has DLNA (unlike ST)
Also, they look different so that might play a part.

I'd probably see if you can view them side by side in a demo room
