Beautiful TV for the money!
I bought this as a second TV for another room in our house. My main TV is a 58" Samsung Plasma That I purchased a few years ago for a lot more money than this one.
One of the things I wanted in a new TV was Wi-Fi, but I didn't want to pay a lot of money. Fortunately, I got some advice from a local dealer who said to pick a cheaper TV that had good picture quality, then buy a Blu-ray player with Wi-Fi and save yourself a ton of money.
I took his advice and found this TV.
Viewing angle on this LG is also one of its strengths
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.
Very good sense of 2D picture depth
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.
This is one fine TV!
First off, I got this 60" plasma at the ridiculous bargain price of $698 from the Audio and Video Center in Santa Monica. I was initially worried about buying the cheapest model in its class -- everything else was double the price -- but this box rocks!
Beautiful deep rich colors, perfectly good -- no matter what the other guy says -- sound and easy setup. Armed with a $79 BluRay, you'll have a REALLY economical, .REALLY awesome smart TV.
Good choice for the money
Owning a SONY Bravia LCD and a Panasonic Viera plasma I knew I preferred the plasma and decided on this LG 50-inch for its hard to beat price. I considered it a secondary TV to my larger 1080p Panasonic so didn't mind this one's 720p resolution. After living with it for a few weeks, I'm happy with that decision and I would rate the picture very highly, with a couple minor reservations.
Saving energy is one of the biggest pros of the LG 42PA4500 TV.
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.
Isn't promising the most amazing image quality.
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.
Price and Features Make It a Good Buy
Had the TV for 2 weeks, so far I am pleased. I'll begin with the TV's picture - it is excellent, colors, detail, etc...are excellent.
The 3D is excellent.The 2D to 3D conversion is excellent.
This plasma does have the "Soap Opera Effect" - which you can remedy by changing the picture setting to "Game Mode". I have the TV in Game Mode 24/7 and have no problems with that at all.
That's where I deduct half a star - literally my only complaint.
Setup was super easy, instructions were clear, and everything was included that I needed. Great blacks, color, clarity, and plenty of color customization options. No digital artifacts or motion-blur and no common plasma-myths at all: low glare which I was surprised about, no odd noises, no signs of any burn-in. As with all flat panels, the sound could be richer, but I've heard much worse on other panels. No problems to report and hope it stays that way!
I'm very happy overall with this TV
We finally had to retire our rear projection big screen and so began the search for a new TV. I looked at LED and Plasma as well as LCD and even projection but ultimately decided on Plasma for a couple reasons. First, the colors look better to my family on the Plasma. The LED almost looked artificial and although we liked the brightness of the LED it just didn't look as natural as the Plasma. Second, we watch a lot of sports and the 600hz refresh on Plasma just couldn't be beat.
Nice HD picture, problems with SD
The TV looks very nice sitting on my cabinet. The borders are thin enough that most people would probably mistake it for an LED. Unlike the TV that I'm replacing, the black tinted screen does a good job of minimizing reflections. I like the chrome plated stand which looks way better than the plastic stands found on cheaper models. The rear jack panel is well laid out with ample connection options. LG includes a ring that keeps your cables wrangled into a nice neat group.
Compared to my 47inch 120Hz LED LG TV. This one has better color accuracy, better blacks, very similar picture quality, but a noticeably dimmer picture. Personally, I like this TV better. I highly recommend it.
Shipping went well. However, the company did not call until they were in my driveway, would have liked a call an hour before to make sure someone was home to receive it.
The LG PZ950 50" 3D plasma HDTV has a strong feature set, attractive design and decent performance, but it does lack slightly in overall picture quality compared to other similar plasmas. It does have great Internet applications and the design of the interface, but the interactive motion-sensitive remote control is this TV's most unique feature.
Sports look sharp and clear without blur or stutter
The LG INFINIA 60PZ750 is a high-end 3D TV. This TV's DLNA certification means that you can play content from other sources such as PCs on it. The INFINIA 60PZ750 comes equipped with LG's SmartTV function, which provides access to content from sites like VUDU, Netflix, Youtube, CinemaNow and Hulu Plus (with the help of the wired Ethernet port or a WiFi adapter, which is not included).
