another review from CNET

Edit:

Thanks first Aussie review I have seen.

But i now think with the 46" Samsung 6 Series at Sub-$2800 already on release, the LG 50 and 100hz are overpriced.

I got my 47" for $2400, how are they overpriced?

Yeah an extra grand for the LG with almost the exact same specs, and slightly older with a design that will likely not please some, I think LG need to adjust their price now..

LG Likely knew this when they launched it before the 6 series. You can almost get the 47" 50hz for the same price as 46" 100hz Samsung.

Don't get me wrong the LG is a nice set, but I'm not sure i could pay an extra 1K for a blue back..... ;)

We could buy a can of paint from Bunnings and make the TV any colour we want for under $50 ! Flourescent yellow or nail polish pink anyone ?

What has LG got that makes the Scarlet or Blue-back worth buying that the others don't offer at a lower price ?

They're very similar spec wise..

A few $100 cheaper though.. I guess it's the 'appeal' of the scarlet range that they're aiming for. Not only that, but the 100hz Blue Scarlet range will be the Super Slim range.

I hope their picture quality is identical and the price difference is the design and super slim factor. Although you may not know, how many months do you think the 70yd are off?

Hi

I'm currently based in the Middle East but will be returning to Perth in the next two weeks. They have just launched the LG Scarlett (32 inch) here for roughly AUD $1100. How does that compare to the prices in perth and who would be a good retailer to contact on this. Any advice or suggestions appreciated

Cheers

Retail Price is $1399

But they're all over the show for around the 11/1200 dollar mark..

If you can get them to around the 900 mark.. You'd be laughing all the way to the bank!

The scarlet come in redback which below 42" are non 1080p. Blue coloured back is 1080p + super slim + 100hz.

Thanks for the info. Was considering getting LG scarlet LCD but now there is another version. Haven't seen any blue back range of LG LCD TVs yet though.

They aren't yet available for a while. I'm not 100% sure when they will be around, as they aren't yet in Australia. Some retailers may have them through early shipment etc. But I'm yet to find any..

I know some retailers actually have the model on their screen with pricing etc, so I can assume they can't be that far off!

Yeah, the blueback is this one - http://au.lge.com/products/model/detail/tv..._42lg61yd.jhtml

If you aren't a fan of the scarlet range in general, there is also the LG70YD which im talking to SuFz about. These from what we can assume have similar specs to the blueback, but a typical design. We are not sure when they will be available though.

Yeah.. LG actually have a backlog of orders and are struggling to keep up! The 70 series is supposedly set to drop end of this month, which is very hopeful! I'd be looking to July to be getting all the LG models.

The blueback scarlet was available through 1st round orders, which were very limited. They didn't send ours - which kinda 'stooged' us. But all is well, the are coming soon (Hopefully!)

O really. What does the picture quality look like compared to the 60FD? Does the blue extend down to the bottom of the frame, as the red does on the 60fd?

PQ is very very nice! Had a little play with the settings and she comes up a treat!

Threw on "The Transporter" BluRay and she comes up a treat!

Definitely a goer!

It's basically a blue backed, thinner version of the 50hz model.

is it really worth the extra cash to get the 61 100Hz model or will the 50hz 60 model be good enough

i watch a bit of football and soccer so will the 60FD do the job for me?

i'm only going to be running foxtel standard definition at this stage through the TV. is the footy ok watching it on SD?

cheers

The 61 is a phenomenal looking unit - I would stick with the 61 and push towards that!

It's not about fitting whats in your budget now.. It's about future proofing yourself!

You don't wanna buy something now, thats not going to meet your needs at a later stage. Even if it takes you an extra 6 months, so be it! Wait that 6 months and keep that extra cash aside for the quicker unit.

I had a few sales people warn me against buying an LCd Tv from LG. They did not stock LG themselves but i had also heard from a tv repairman that LG have the most comebacks he comes accross. this may not be the case now as the units in question had 1 year warranties but does anyone else know much abnout this?

this panel sounds great and is good value for money for $1900 .

if i'm planning on watching a lot of fox sports in standard definition (cable conection) will the 60 Fd do the job for me or should i get the 100HZ 61 series to get smoother viewing? $500 is the difference between the 2 at the moment ($1900/2400)

this is the most important decision for me as i watch fox sports and espn which make up 90% of my viewing.

I can't really say as I dont watch much sport on Fox.. But even saying that much..

I find the 61 great when watching Nascar on Saturdays on TenHD and then S.O.O last week looked AWESOME on the 61!

LG used to have the most comebacks - But that's because they sold phenomenal amounts of there product! Fair enough they were new to the industry still walking along their learning curve. But now, they're creating the curve for other manufacturers to learn from! Now.. The LCDs have 3 year warranties and with their smaller appliances eg. DVD Players, Recorders, they provide an in home service!

Fezza

Were you watching the AFL and soccer in SD or HD ?

let me know what it looks like in SD

cheers

i was watching afl on HD and soccer (euro on sbs) in hd (ch30 which is broadcast as 576p which is true sd as true hd has to be atleast 720p and above and sbs can't afford that yet :P) and it looked great anyway. no blurring/shearing effect etc

I get the feeling if LG products were really that bad they wouldn't be sold at all...

But the reason for so many returns is the amount of sales..... If LG are the biggest manufacturer of electrical goods in the world,

there is a high likely hood that they will also have the highest level of faults on those items. It's just maths.....

In all likely hood Sony do likely get less returns, of course they likely sell about 1/5th of the amount of electrical items worldwide.

I'm not saying LG are the best quality gear around, they aren't..... They are just one of the standard large consumer level product makers around.

But i would be looking at the features, specs and price, and be worrying less about the name. 3 Year Warranty, is fairly standard..

I used to sell Acer Monitors many years back, used to come back 3 times often as any other monitor we sold, Normally this would be a worry...

Of course we sold about 30:1 Acer to Sony, So on averages of items sold It was the Trinitrons made in either Mexico or China

that came back for repair or replacement more often than not..... So we would get 5 faulty Acers to 1 faulty Sony, the difference is we would of

only sold 1x Sony to get 1x Sony faulty, meanwhile there were at least 25 Acers still working without issue for somebody...
