What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value Ive had this TV for two years and it is awesome. Deep blacks and Rick colours. I've only ever seen minor burn in that had always faded away. So no issues in two years so far. Hopefully it'll last a few more years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality and great picture I have owned this TV for almost 4 years and have enjoyed it. Recently starting to have an issue with the TV shutting itself off for no reason then I have to unplug it to get it to reset. Might have to replace it with a 4k LG.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Basic Plasma is better than LED After auditioning 2 different LED sets in my home, I chose to go with a plasma display. It is unfortunate that these are no longer being manufactured, but I'm fortunate to have been able to purchase a plasma TV before the stock was completely depleted. There is no motion blur with this plasma TV and the colors are accurate. I would have preferred to have more HDMI inputs on this TV, but I made up for it by connecting the TV to an AVR. I really don't like the fact that this TV only has a digital audio output. Analogue outputs are much more useful, as they can be used with headphones, a legacy audio system, or even the latest and greatest AVR. The digital audio out leaves a noticeable gap between the dialogue from an OTA and the dialogue being output to whatever device is connected via the digital optical audio output. That is my main gripe with this TV. The picture quality is very good for a "bargain" priced TV. The audio quality is ok. I like the built in swivel stand / base. This is a very good looking TV. The menu system is a little basic, but it is easy to follow. This tTV allows the user to get into some very technical picture quality settings, and I really appreciate that this feature is available on this TV. This is , perhaps, one of the most important features to include in a TV set and LG got this part right. I would definitely recommend this TV to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a wonderful product!!!!!!! I cannot tell you how much we are enjoying our plasma TV!!! Even our kitten enjoys watching it. It is so easy to program and use. The picture is so crisp and the sound is far superior to other tv's I've had. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for an affordable, top notch TV. Keep up the good work!!!! Oh and the online support and tips are a fantastic added bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is great! We have only had this LG TV for a few months. First of all we tried it out to make sure all was working well with it at home before taking it 3500 km. to where we spend the winters. We were totally amazed when my husband plugged in the HDMI and it automatically came up on the screen and asked if we wanted to go there. No more fooling around going to different menus. The picture is great and sharp. We would recommend this TV to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from " Finally A Change " I surprised my sister by ordering this tv to replace a console set from 1986! At first she was cool to the idea of new technology, but after seeing the picture and hearing the sound we tossed the console away! She now has a great viewing experiance every night of the week. Thanks LG!!!
