LG 37LG5000 & LG 37LG7000 - Whats the Difference?


Standard Member
Hi guys im looking to buy a new HDTV, i like both the LG's metioned in the Title but whats the difference?

The 37LG5000 at amazon:
LG 37LG5000 - 37" Widescreen 1080P Full HD LCD TV: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo

And the 37LG7000 at Dixons:
LG 37LG7000 Exclusive 37" 100Hz LCD TV - Cheap LG LCD TVs, Plasma TVs, HD Ready TVs

Both are:
50,000:1 contrast
500cd/m2 peek brightness

However the 37LG7000 is about £80 to £100 more than the 37LG5000 so is it better to spend £100 more on the 37LG7000 or not?

Thanks in advance

The 7000 has 100Hz and Bluetooth. The former of which might not make that much difference to the picture, the latter of which you may never use. I have the 37LG5010 (5000 with a red tint to the bottom of the frame) and I like it. My only complaint is the black level is pretty grey. It's got some pretty advanced colour/picture options but I've not seen any settings posted on here.

Cheers mate, ive heard that 100hz effects moving images like games consoles and sports is that true? If so would my PS3 be better on a 100hz Set?
