LG plasma 42PG21-600 Hertz?? anty feedback


Sep 23, 2007
Saw this LG plasma 42PG21 in Vijay sales goregaon @ Rs 46000
There is big sticker announcing 600 Hertz & 100000:1 Contrast ratio.
I was in hurry so no testing was psble - but according to salesman "it gives flicker free picture!!"
Rest features - as any mass marketer - he was clueless.
To my eye the tata sky feed it was showing was not that great

So any feedback of this model??My friend has 100 Hertz tv ( philips) which is fantastic. so how good 600 Hertz will be - or it is just a marketig gimmic??

Guys your reviews please!!!
I didnt see this topic earlier, but never mind.

Well, i saw this "600Hz" thing too, for this model. It is it's "Sub-field driving" rate. It is the rate at which the image is processed on the display. Human eye cannot differentiate when this rate exceeds 60-80Hz, so i guess it's just a marketing gimmick.

I had compared this TV with a Panasonic PV8 side by side, and obviously i didnt spot any difference in screen refresh rate. And by the way, LGPG21 is an excellent model, when i compared it with the PV8. I think it's quite underrated here. It's costing 45K and no big difference between the image quality of the PV8. Even though i found PV8 just a bit better, my friend who was with me while comparing, actually found the LG better.

For the human eye to perceive the 1080P resolution, the refresh rate has to be 24 frames / sec with a frequency that it can divide wholly (which it does for 600 Hz). The picture will be sharper than a 24 fps at 60 Hz. Key is 24 fps.
