Both share similar features. They are both 60in full HD plasma television sets with a slim bezel, an attractive design, a 600Hz refresh rate, two 10W speakers, a USB and a SCART port.
LG’s model has a slightly lower power consumption, three HDMI ports (compared to two for Samsung’s) and a D-Sub connector plus a Freeview HD tuner (rather than Samsung’s Freeview).
Samsung’s model, which is part of the company’s mainstream Series 5 range, includes the Mega DCR contrast technology, HyperReal Engine picture enhancement technology, Dolby Digital Plus, and it weighs a rather hefty 33Kg.
As for the LG, which cost a whopping £1399 back in April, it has a 3,000,000:1 contrast ratio, Triple XD Engine technology, Noise reduction and Clear Voice II sound enhancement technology.
Out of the two and on paper, the LG appears to be a better purchase. Currys is also offering a 25 per cent discount on all TV stands, wall brackets and cables when bought with any TV.
