Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV Have enjoyed this tv so much, that when it came time to replace our bedroom unit, we bought a 55 inch for the livingroom and moved this 42 inch in there.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Picture Died Purchased a 42 inch plasma TV, not this exact model but close. Purchased end of January 2014 and picture already went out. Not very happy to have a repair in just 2 months. Repair scheduled so not sure what the issue is but extrememly disappointed and not sure I would ever buy LG product again. Never had purchased a TV that needed a repair. What is the deal.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features Our TV is actually the 50PA4500. You can change the view for the TV (i.e. wide screen and zoom) just to name a few options that you can change to. You can also get netflix, pics and do slide show on the TV screen. We truly love our new TV.
