What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Shuts off intermittently Well, I love the picture, that is I love the picture when it isn't shutting off constantly during viewing. At first, just after the warranty ended it started getting vertical lines if all different colors and then the oicture became unwatchable. LG was good to us after a long argument and replaced the screen free. Well now it keeps shutting off and after some research I found out that this is quite common. I wonder when LG is going to recall or fix these TVs. I used to love LG, now I just don't know what to think. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best TV I ever owned. This is the best tv I have ever owned. The picture is out of this world. It is easy to use and looks like a million bucks in my living room. Our friends all rave about it as does anyone who happens to see it. Our first plasma and I hope the plasma format is around for a long long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving it so far I bought this tv to replace a plasma that ended up dying on me after many years of service. I am very happy with it. I only have it for 2 days so far but right out of the box it looks great. I can't wait to fine tune it and configure it.
