Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great picture, weak sound. After much research and comparison, our family picked this TV and we have not been disappointed. The HiDef picture is perfect! The screen size is just right for a large living/family room. The only drawback is the sound/volume capability in said room. I will need to grab a home theater or sound bar components in the near future. You will not be disappointed with the SmartTV feature either, the unit comes pre-loaded with everything you could want and more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best TV and Great cost I managed to pruchase this TV the month it was released. Normally I wait a few months to let the bugs get outa the system but I just couldn't wait. The price was perfect especially with all the options, bells and whistles that come with it. My first fully interactive and 3D TV!! I've had previous LG produces and this just lives up to the LG name!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty Solid, but has issues Overall picture quality is pretty decent. Has some dirty screen effect and also produces darker images. Can get brighter images, but colors get washed out and blacks turn gray. For the price, it is a pretty solid plasma. If you have a dedicated home theater room, this would be a really good television. For brighter room environments, there are better options.
