I wonder if the pk250/350 software resembles the US-version software of the pk550 more closely. Can anyone chime in on this?
The PK250 and PK350 will be available also here in Italy. The PK350 should be ready on some stores now (here).
I'm reading some threads about these new LGs on some E.U. forums. I know on hifi-forum.de they say the PK550 has the undefeatable edge enhancing issue, but personally I'm not 100% sure about it, or about when really it is coming out. Yesterday an italian guy has bought a 60PK550 and posted some pics just out-of-the-box and using the THX Cinema profile. You can see them here:http://www.avmagazine.it/forum/showp...&postcount=175
they are from different sources (DVB-T, DVD, BD and MKV). I can't see on them that edge enhancing issue, and even the settings are not the best ones.
I actually don't know if that 60PK550 is a german or a french model (the italian version is not available now) but I'll investigate on it the next week.
I think the PK550 could be a best choice, it should have also the bluetooth which is useful if you need to use headphones. It has also 4 HDMI instead of 2. THX presets are not really important by my point of view, because you can use the standard Cinema preset or the ISFs.
I think the PK250 and the PK350 are using a different processor: the Saturn6 that was used on the 2009 models. It is reported on the block diagram in the last page of the italian user manual (available for download from the LG Austrian web site).
So, at the end, I suggest you to go in person to watch the PK550, and let us know if you have seen something wrong on it (edge enhancing issue)
