What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV We have had this TV for about 6 months. We have not had any issues to date. The picture quality is excellent. It is very easy to use and was easy to set up. There have been no pixel issues or ghost images. The TV is easy to view at an angle. The only issue that we have had is when mounting to a wall, it was difficult to route the cables behind the unit. The jacks for the various connectors are not recessed enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some things missing... This is a mixed bag. Basically, it's a great value and good performer. BUT some really stupid design decisions were made! Example: set doesn't remember past previous channel (along with current channel) when set is turned off. A large part of my viewing uses just 2 channels that I swap between; it would be nice to have them BOTH available (by stupidly named "flash-back" feature button) on power-up. Another is inability to change sort order of inputs. I use only two (HDMI input 1 and TV) 99% of the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Plasma TV Very happy with our tv. Image quality is great and it works well with our Satellite receiver. I successfully connected my laptop and it had no problems adding it as a second monitor. I do wish it had analog audio out jacks to connect to my sound system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV I bought this plasma comparing it to many different brands and sizes. It was in my budget and had all the qualities I was looking for. I have other TVs (DLP and LCD) and like this one the most. I would recommend it if still available. I love it. I have other LG products and have found them to be very dependable and enjoyable to own. I will definitely purchase other LG products in the future. One last thing, great quality for the price. Go LG!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I love this TV. I went back and forth between plasma and LCD and ended up purchasing plasma. The picture quality is excellent with very deep blacks, bright vivid colors and no motion blur that I can see. Set up was a snap. I have had the unit for about 5 months now with no problems whatsoever. The only minor issue (common to all plasmas, not just this one) is the reflective nature of the screen. However, I used a tilting wall mount and that took care of part of the problem. For the best experience, you really should have a room that you can darken and minimize the reflections. However, I have realized that after sitting there watching TV for a few minutes, the reflections fade away and are not even noticeable unless I deliberately look for them. Overall though, and excellent, quality product and I have absolutely no regrets about purchasing it.
