What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't buy! I have had this tv since Jan. 2008 and I now am getting lines runnignthrough this tv. When I bought this tv the reports for it was 26 years of service. Now it looks like I am going to have to replace it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective TV We had the Y-buffer board go out on this tv, as is very common, one month out of warranty. Very expensive repair unless you purchase the part online and are able to replace it yourself as I did. Not worth the hassle of removing the television from the wall mount, repairing and replacing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Buy We didn't realize that we were not viewing HD channels so we were somewhat confused when we first got it, but now that we've discovered hd channels we feel this was a very good buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this TV! Great value for the price. We were actually looking at smaller LCD's and decided to go with the plasma. The picture quality was great and we were able to go with a larger size for not much more in cost!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great deal unfortunately this model is discontinued. The only reason i could see is the speakers are a little small for it, other wise i love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding My wife bought me this TV for my birthday, and hit the nail right on the head. The picture is incredible, the sound is great and all of my best shows that I thought were good on our LCD are so much better on this LG Plasma. The remote is simple to use, and with all of the inputs, everything hooked in super simple, changing between devices couldn't be much easier, unless it read my mind.
