Samsung Vs LG LCD TV - Which is good?


Standard Member

I am planning to buy an LCD TV not bigger than 40inch or 42inch.
I have 2 options
Samsung 40B550, 40B650 or anything better.
LG 42LH50, or the scarlet 42.

I am reading a lot of reviews about LG being good and bad, can someone help me out?

I am mainly looking for gaming & movies.

Also, can someone tell me what are the parameters to look for while buying an LCD (contrast ratio?, 100/200 Hz? response time?)

Thanks a lot in advance.

The Samsung will probably have the edge for PQ and the LG will have the advantage for gaming. So depends on your priorities really. You should also consider the Sony sets, V and W5500.
