Released November, 2007
The Pros:Smallest mass-produced plasma available.
The Cons:Not HDTV - only 852 x 480 resolution. Poor contrast ratio and brightness spec. Larger 1080p plasmas available for not much more $$$.
LG recently announced the LG 32PC5RV 32" plasma TV: the world's smallest (widely available) plasma TV. Typically at this size, LCD TVs dominate the flat-panel market, and the 32PC5RV extends to plasma vs.
LCD debate to the smaller screen sizes. With a price tag expected to be between $1000 and $1100, it has a relatively cost for a plasma. However, with a very low 852 x 480 native resolution, this is not an HDTV compatible set. Many of its other specifications such as brightness (550 lumen) and contrast ratio (1800:1) are less than ideal as well.
- 32" 16:9 plasma TV (NOT HDTV)
- resolution: 852 x 480
- brightness: 550 lumen
- contrast ratio: 1800:1
- price: $1000 - $1100
- release date: November 2007
The LG 32PC5RV will launch in Brazil in October 2007, and to the rest of the world in November. Expect it to retail around the $1000 to $1100 price point. The 32" flat panel market is the fastest growing segment in the television market (according to DisplaySearch), as consumers look for smaller secondary televisions.
