Whats up


I got some extra money, and I am looking to upgrade my 27" Sony Tube TV I have into a beautiful Plasma.


I have two picked out


LG 50pk550 and the Samsung PN50C550


Which one would be the best bet?


I have never had an HD TV before, nor had a blu ray


I have looked at them alot


I am new to the idea of 24p mode, and not sure how much it matters...


so...for the price...is the Samsung better?


Thanks so much for the help!

Welcome to the forum



Those both represent good value for money.


My personal experience with LG has not been great in terms of PQ. They seem to be far noisier generally speaking then Samsung and Panasonic.


I would go Samsung if I were you...especially at that price, that TV is typically several hundred dollars more than you're saying it is. Seems like a tremendous value for money.

Thanks for the quick response and the welcome, I assume to be here for a while ;]



I assume "PQ" refers to Production quality?


TV is going into a basement, so no glare issues with anything.

If you game, the LG is out. If the TV will be in a room that's dificult to control light in, the LG is out there too. If you don't game and you can control the light, the LG you listed has recieved some great reviews and should strongly be concidered, though some people have complained about sound and video being out of sync on the LGs so it looks like people are lips synching (don't know about that particular model though).


The PN50C550 looks like a good model too.
