Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value for the cost I've owned this plasma tv since April of 2012 with only minor sound issues. I recently had to have the speakers and mother board replaced. The technician indicated that most flat screen tv's end up having speaker issues because of how the speakers are manufactured and the low quality of the speaker assembly itself. Thankfully, I purchased the 3 year extended warranty, which I highly recommend. Had I had to pay for the service out of pocket it would have made more sense to buy a new television. I also discovered several new features I was unware of when I purchased it, the coolest being the wifi feature that allows me to have the TV anywhere in the home where I have power. The adapter affixes to the back of the television and all peripherials plug into a tranmitter and sends the signal wirelessly. Makes for ideal mobility of the device.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Value and support Great value but support like most today does not look to benefit the buyer. This is not a smart TV thought it has network connectivity. LG has failed to update the network interface so greater options are available. I could not recommend this product because it lacks may internet options. This is something easy for LG to update.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy I found this TV on such a great deal I couldn't pass it up. I didn't want a 3D TV but is was a better deal so I bought it. Now that i have it I love the 3D feature and doubt I will ever buy another TV without it. This TV does more than I could ever want it to. The setup was very easy. I definitely recommend this TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from what a deal This Plasma is fantastic. I did a lot of shopping around and could not find a better deal. I wasnt even looking for a 3D TV but the deal I got for amazing. The Black color levels on this set is almost prefect. The only down side to this product in my eyes is the sound quality...wish the speakers where better. But other than that, GREAT PLASMA TV

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG 50PZ550 & 3D Glasses This lG Plasma HDTV is awesome. The color & functionality is great and easy to use. Setup was a breeze. This is an upgrade from a 42"plasma. The only annoying problem is the 3D glasses. It keeps turning off after 10 min. This problem is also posted elsewhere on net. I thought that this was just an isolated problem but it happened to all of my 3 pairs of 3D glasses. After exchanging them, I found 1 that worked correctly without turning off. I don't know if its' the TV or the 3D glasses but this should never have been a problem or design issue. This is my only disappointment for an otherwise great HDTV.
