What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Used to be Great Loved this tv, great size, great picture. But after 3 years of use it's having issues. When we are watching movies via the USB port it randomly turns off. Not all the time. But very frustrating. It did well for 3 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good for the price, excellent colour/ build quality! I bought this tv, as a second tv for my bedroom! I thought it would no where near be as good as my Panasonic 50 inch thats FULL HD! But Boy was I wrong, its nearly as good if not better than my expensive tv! Only problem with whole tv is I would have preferred more HDMI Slots, but My home theatre system has 4 on it so its not a real issue to me. :) KEEP UP THE FANTASTIC WORK LG! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very impressed with this sub $1000 50" Plasma I was expecting a similar performance with this unit to my previous Samsung, but this LG exceeded my expectations. The depth of colour, easy menu selections and smart technology was very impressive. Added to this was the thin (and light) frame which made it possible to hang this unit off the wall. Good performance and features for the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG 50PT250 Razor Sharp TV We love our new LG 50PT250 Plasma TV. My wife loves the slim line razor edge, while I love the great piture depth and vivid colour. The kids just love the easy program guides and great sound through our LG surround sound system. A fantastic TV. Well done LG.
