A few posts for this one last year, is this a good bet or should I wait for the new model? Thanks
Review...doesn't look great...LG are the cheapest of the big brands, I would say you get what you pay for

Thanks for pointing me to that Vickster. Maybe I'll wait. Buying a tv these days is a nightmare! Which would you recommend for around £500?
To be used for what? What features are important to you? Personally, LG don't float my boat. Pound for pound plasma offers more
Picture quality is the most important. And natural tones, not the over-sharp, jpg images that all flat screens seem to have as standard. 3D is less important, the thin LED screens are great in that they take up less space. Sound doesn't matter. For watching movies and tv on.
42G30 if 2D, 42ST30 if 3D
You're the first to recommend plasma. This one looks good, 600hz is tempting. The LEDs are slimmer though. Apart from higher hz why else is plasma better?
Don't forget running costs though, plasma = more
Inch for inch, spec wise, plasma costs less to buy however. You are talking £20 a year more, depending on what you watch. It gives the natural picture the OP wants with better motion handling
Don't compare the hz rating of plasma to that of LCD - not the same thing at all
Read the info at the top of the plasma forum for pros and cons of both techs
Thanks Vickster, I'll take a look at some plasmas.
