The specs look very nice, and will no doubt be cheaper than comparable Panny (GT30/VT30).
raydenl: In an ideal world I would probably look at a 65" VT30. But I don't want to remortgage my house to buy a TV.
I am considering a GT30, but until I see some reviews between the Panny GT30 and LG PZ 950, I'll keep an open mind.
Some reasons I don't like the GT30:
- Only 24p 2:2 pulldown versus the 3:3 on the PZ950.
- Still using IR to sync glasses (prone to lose sync causing flickering issues) vs RF on the LG
- basic web content, limited apps, no browser. LG are quite ahead in this area
- Stupid silver strip around glass panel, apparently quite a distraction. PZ950's look sexy.
So unless the PQ of the LGs if substantially worse than the GT30, that is what I will be chosing.
raydenl: Riiiiight. I was waiting for the onslaught of completely groundless statements.
I would rather watch 24p content at 72Hz than 48, just one way in which Panasonic is not better in these similarly priced sets.
raydenl: So it appears we (NZ) are not getting the Panny GT30, or the Samsung D7000.
LG won't reply to any if my emails regarding the PZ950, so it doesnt look hopeful.
It appears if you live in NZ you either have to buy the premium high end sets (VT30, D8000) or the cheap crap.
