Updated 8-19-2014 I own this and I did have the 43" Samsung 4500 plasma so to compare the two last small plasmas on the market
LG pros The LG has more features for broadcast TV watchers It has a broadcast signal strength indicator It can act as a radio with a "display off" setting (useful for bedrooms) Has physical power button -- no need to find remote every time It swivels more than the last Panasonic plasma swivel bases
LG minus Remote is weak (updated) tested batteries, just has short range. Audio not in sync with video
Samsung pros Lighted dependable remote Audio in sync with video 1 inch bigger
Samsung minus No power button or controls -- 100% remote depended No signal meter, no swivel Not only does the Samsung not have an audio-only setting, but it cannot be dimmed to black manually. The LG can be dimmed to any % all the way to black
Both Samsung & LG plus Unlike big beefy 1080p Panasonics of old, these new LG & Samsung are low energy and do not heat extremely hot and do not buzz when not in use.
Both Samsung & LG minus Very limited connections Unlike Panasonic plasma, you cannot jump from a broadcast channel to another source. You cannot flip back and forth. With LG & Samsung the "JUMP" button on the remote only allows switching between broadcast channels. Panasonic allows the JUMP button to jump at all times. Unlike Panasonic, the remote sensor & source inputs are to the far left. The left corner frame must stay exposed for remote function. My setup has corners hid, so Panasonic middle sensor was perfect.
Picture Samsung was defective, but that aside they have same picture quality.
Audio Both have good audio. Equal tone quality. However, the LG audio is not in sync with video with people speaking on broadcast TV
Trickracen said: After all the reviews ive read, I saw nothing about audio issues. You might have a bad unit, cable, or something else. overall seems like it has good reviews. Yeah, I refuse to believe this is an issue with all of the units
psxzombie said: You own this, even with audio sync problems?
Is the sync problem with all sources, broadcast, HDMI, etc...
Yes, HDMI and broadcast antenna. It is a small TV that I keep running with news without watching, or watch it for sports. For me, the remote is the biggest pain because it is not what I am used to compared to Panasonic and Samsung. Batteries test fine.
The Samsung in April, with no power to the top 3 inches of the display, was unkeepable. I still have not been refunded on the Samsung return, and this is blamed on a Barclay computer processing glitch. On the plus side, I have learned to speak Tagalog-English very well.
Excellent TV Mine arrived yesterday. No sound issues. I started another thread no knowing someone else found this deal. I found it through a google search. Want another now. An S video port would have been nice though.
