LG house some of the best Plasma TVs today with screens going from 42" to 60" on Full HD resolutions. LG take care to see that you don't miss out on picture quality while watching that 1080p or 720p content on your wide screens. They've introduced TruBlack in their Plasma TVs, a proprietary feature that enhances the already rich contrasts of a plasma display to highlight the intricacies of an image like never before.

A major downside to owning a plasma screen is that it's made of glass and is by default, highly reflective; and therefore, in brightly lit rooms, it's quite common to experience loss in picture clarity due to reflected ambient light. So unless you intend to place your Plasma set in a dimly lit setting, you should opt for a TV with an anti-reflective material which serves to counter this drawback to a certain extent. LG has come out with the only Plasma TV that cases a matte screen however, the model is probably the only one of its kind.

While LG Plasma TVs of 2013 are known for their faster image processing, the 600Hz Sub Field Drive is what eliminates motion blur, allowing you to enjoy fast paced action movies and sports with smoother contours during image transition and sharper details.

While they typically endorse Passive 3D, LG does not lag behind when it comes to 3D Plasma sets. Inspite of cold-shouldering Active 3D technology so vehemently, LG has come out with a few splendid Plasma 3D-Ready TVs with Active 3D shutter glasses sold separately. These models are also among their range of SmartTVs and host a gamut of interactive features like a certified full web browser, in-built Wi-Fi and access to several applications to allow you to stream movies and videos. Our listing of the best LG Plasma Tvs represents a consensus of expert reviews, to help you make a decisive choice.

  • We wanted to love the LG PN6500. It has a lot going for it: good looks, accurate colors, an incredibly wide viewing angle, and terrific motion performance. But a terrible contrast ratio ruins the entire package. What's worse, this is a plasma TV, which means it should have a rich, dark black level. The fact that it doesn't is troublesome.

    LG's LED displays usually have poor black levels and incredibly bright white levels to make up for them. Would you ever buy a sports car that accelerated slower than a hybrid?


  • I mean if you just want a good 1080p HD picture for a darker room at home how can you beat $849? You cant. If you are not interested in 3D, Smart TV or any of the fanciest features that higher end TVs have to offer and just want a good sports or movie TV then the 60PN6500 could be the answer. You certainly get great savings from 1) going plasma and 2) foregoing all the extra features. There still plenty of HDMI inputs and connectivity options.


  • The LG PN5300 series is a solid choice if you want to pay very little for a large plasma HDTV, although it's not a top-level performer.


  • The LG PA4500 is a decent budget TV in many respects but its competitors are able to deliver bigger picture quality for the buck.

    The LG 42PA4500 TV is a quality unit with many great features. It may not be the best choice out there, but for the price, it is definitely worth every penny. If you can afford to spend more than $750 on a TV, this might not be the right choice for you, but if not, it is a great upgrade from any LCD unit or any older Plasma.

    You will get a sharp image with great features to automatically calibrate your picture. This TV is easy to operate and you will be able to enjoy any program you choose with the incredible image and the slim profile.


  • The LG 42PA4500 is a plasma TV that can be picked up for around £350. We tested the 42" model (42PA4500) but this TV is also available with a 50" screen (50PA4500).

    With its relatively restrained price tag, the LG PA4500 isn't promising the most amazing image quality. In fact, LG seems more keen to promote the integrated multimedia player. This TV therefore makes do with the strict minimum-and sometimes a bit less-with a 1366 x 768 pixel plasma screen, two HDMI ports, two USB ports ... and that's your lot!
