With LCDs now growing to ever larger sizes, giving plasma a run for its dosh, LG’s decided it's time plasmas started a counter-offensive in traditional LCD turf.LG has launched what it claims is the world's only 32in plasma – the 32PC5RV.Now we can enjoy all the usual plasma benefits – pant wetting 0.001ms response times, wider colour range, motion blur-free pictures and deep, deep blacks – in a smaller size.Sounds perfect except for one small snag - it's only 852x480 pixels. Great for standard-def Freeview, DVDs and Wii, but useless for anything approaching HD.EssentialsLG 32PC5RVPrice: £600On sale: November Contact: LGRelated stories:LG turns the TV chocolateySTUFF REPORT Pioneer cracks plasma blacksPost-plasma Sony pumps out new LCDs
