Great TV and fantastic value -- Get one while you can!!!
If you are looking for a good and serviceable TV and don't need a larger size than 42"' or more than two HDMI connections, or the other bells and whistles, this is a fantastic choice. I don't understand the relatively low marks it gets in its review by CNET; In my opinion, it is much better than the review indicates. The advantage with the plasma is you don't need to worry about the refresh rate and the picture is great no matter what angle you watch from.
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.
overall great picture quality
