The LG 50PK790 brings together a stunning picture quality with LG's fantastically useful NetCast.

Thanks to its 600Hz sub-field driving technology, the 50PK790 can rightly claim to have class-leading motion. 600Hz technology works by pulsing each frame 12 times, thereby upgrading the standard 50Hz signal to an effective 600Hz one. If all this is double Dutch to you, then don't be concerned! Suffice to say that the new technology gives the 50PK790 a superb response with incredible realism and super-sharp tracking on fast moving motion such as sports events. With technologies such as the latest version of LG's highly acclaimed Dual XD Engine and an Intelligent Light Sensor, the 50PK790 offers up excellent levels of brightness, colour purity and contrast. The figures showing an astonishing dynamic contrast ratio of 3,000,000:1 and brightness of 1500cdm say a great deal, but the proof of the LG's superior picture quality is in the watching.

As we've always said, a separate home cinema system is what's needed to really bring a quality TV such as this to life. Having said that, the onboard audio makes a good effort. The Clear Voice II system makes dialogue easy to follow. Combined with the Invisible speaker system, you'll find it gives the LG 50PK790 a smooth, spacious sound that's less boxy-sounding than many TVs. Finally, if you're planning to use this plasma TV as part of your home cinema system, then you'll be pleased to find an optical digital output - perfect for the highest quality audio connection to your AV receiver.

In terms of connections, the 50PK790 has everything you'd expect plus more besides. Perhaps best of all is NetCast. NetCast brings the best of the Internet, via apps, directly to your TV. Simply connect the 50PK790 to your home network via the Ethernet cable or use an optional wireless dongle and you'll have access to sites such as YouTube without the need to turn on your computer. Also standard is a Bluetooth connector; perfect for wireless connection of digital media or Bluetooth headphones. Four HDMI sockets allow for the connection of 4 High Definition sources, such as an HD-TV box, PS3, HD camcorder and Blu-ray. In addition to all this, the 50PK790 boasts a USB connection. This lets you watch digital media from your camera or phone and is even compatible with HD DivX.

With a depth of just 52.4mm, the 50PK790 is one of the slimmest plasma TVs to date. That and the single layer, front panel screen disguise the bulk of the TV. Combined with the glass stand, this is one slick TV that's bound to be the focus of any room.
