Panasonic 50ST30 vs LG 47LW650


Distinguished Member
Similar price, one is a plasma with active shutter 3D (glasses sold separate), the other a LCD LED with cheap passive 3D glasses. 3" in the difference. Both are competing for my affections. Sitting 3.3 metres from the TV and can't go bigger than 50". Both get solid reviews. Which would you recommend? Was blown away by a passive 3D demo last year and though usually not a LCD guy the reviews have been supremely positive for the LG, 2D as well as 3D. However would like the extra 3" and plasma motion and deeper blacks (I presume) of the ST30. But I hate the plasma buzz of my old (Hitachi) set and the blacks have risen to a grey murk.

Im in the same situation i can not make up my mind between these sets. Lg running on half the resolution and specially then games in only 720p what will it look like also people are complaing about a input lag when gaming on the lg. But it is so much relaxter to watch 3d.

So anyone else nade a choice ?
