The 2008 LG Plasma lineup

Ben Drawbaugh

LG revamps their Plasma lineup with eight new HDTVs spanning four new lines. All of them include LG's new Clear Voice feature which help to hear the dialog over the sound effects for those without a proper surround sound system, as well as HDMI 1.3 with Deep Color. The top of the line PG70 line -- available in 50 and 60-inch sizes -- is of course 1080p, has 30,000:1 contrast, four HDMI inputs and optional wireless "transmission component," as well as being THX Display certified and "ISFcc Calibration Ready." The PG60 is available in the same sizes and goes feature for feature with the PG70, with the exception of the optional wireless features. Moving down the line, the PG30 drops the higher end ISFccc and THX features, and only has three HDMI 1.3 ports. And finally, the PG20 line is the only two remaining 720p sets in the lineup and is available in 42 and 50-inches, with a contrast ratio of 15,000:1. Unfortunately, pricing and availability are unknown, but we'd put our money on the summer of '08.
