Fantastic TV ... with only one possible issue
The picture is beautiful after calibration, and with energy saver mode turned off, obviously. I found that the TruMotion feature works under certain conditions, mostly for TV broadcasts. For DVD and Bluray, I had to turn it off - because, even though it did seem to make the image appear sharper (especially for DVD material), I just couldn't get used to the SOE. Suddenly, the Mentalist characters looked like they wandered onto the set of Days of Our Lives. Just too distracting.
The G2 is LG's Sweet Spot for 2012!!
The LG 55G2 (or 47) has exceeded my expectations and is totally set up to be the hub of your entire entertainment center. Content is endless with more to be added thru the app store and firmware updates. Picture quality is excellent for an edge lit LCD/LED and performance is fast and snappy. The whole package is wrapped up in a beautiful modern looking package that will look good in almost any room. This is an excellent Goggle TV system and a great HDTV as well.
Good color, LG still boasts great 3D
The LG 47G2 is a fine TV, but it's only mildly different than the other 3D, smart TVs in LG's 2012 line-up. You're investing in the cross-integrated Google apps and account mileage you'll be getting between your PC and TV, but it doesn't feel as fleshed out or as rewarding as it could. A lot of the apps in the Google Play store are simply ported over from the Android interface, and some of them - Shark Wars comes to mind - haven't even been updated to be on a larger screen.
Handy Google search feature, Intuitive, easily navigable app interface
Had the G2 bowled us over with excellent picture quality and an only slightly improved Google TV experience or, conversely, had it blown us away with a revolutionary new Google TV interface paired with superior picture quality, we'd be writing a more favorable review. Unfortunately, the G2's bleeding edge lights and compromised black levels had us furrowing our eyebrows. And because the Google TV experience still suffers some limitations, we're unable to overlook the image performance.
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!
Excellent High Value LG Smart HDTV!!
This LG looks, sounds and works the way you WANT it to!
At the current price, the LG 47LM6200 represents one of the very top values in HDTV today. Read my caveats at the very end of this review, but otherwise you just can't beat this TV for the price. IT currently resides in the master bedroom , connected to a Fios HD DVR and Oppo Blu Ray player but could easily be the center of ANY living room entertainment center or home theater set-up.
The best 3D experience in the business
With so many features done well on this TV, it is hard to not recommend the 32LM6200 (MSRP $650). There is a robust Smart TV platform, industry-leading 3D, and yes, a good quality picture. LG has done a fantastic job at creating a mid-range TV that is feature-heavy and a solid performer.
The design of this TV will catch the eye of many consumers: it is bold and futuristic, and those adjectives apply to the motion controlled remote, too.
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.
First off I was a little concerned about ordering such a big object and having it delivered. It arrived and the carrier brought it into the house and the box looked like I had brought it home from the store myself, not a mark on it. The carrier opened the box and we went thru it and made sure the screen wasn't damaged and all major parts were there. He offered to place it where ever I wanted it and take all the trash and boxes away. So that part was 5 stars in itself.
Very strong colors and decent blacks
Overall, while this model doesn't have the best picture quality I've seen, it does an above-average job few people will have any reason to complain about. That, and the innovative remote, large online content mix and impressive industrial design make this a TV that has something for almost everyone.
