Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 59 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Won't come on, not even 2yrs old TV had a good picture at night. Too much ambient light during day. Won't come on now. Turns self off and on. Not sure it's worth the $300-500 repair costs that I am finding on-line that others have paid for same problem. As this seems to be an example of LG TV quality,LG won't be on any of my shopping lists. September 4, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by POOR RELIABILITY After only 2 years of service, the display panel crashed and the TV had to be replaced - LG should be greatly disappointed at the reliability of this set - NO WONDER THEY DISCONTINUED THIS MODEL. July 20, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Very disappointed We have had our television for a year and a half. We loved the picture and the TV, but we are now having issues. The TV just shuts off when you turn it on. From what I have seen online this is a common issue. Of course, LG only offers a year warranty. We have several other plasma TV's in our house by other manufacturers and have not had issues. I will not purchase another LG television July 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than ANY LCD/LED/Plasma that I have seen I work in the IT field and my previous TVs have all been samsungs...I am now an LG convert. I studied specs, reviews, prices, etc. of just about all 50+ inch LEDs, LCDs, and Plasmas and looked at dozens side by side in the store, this one beats them all. Price, picture quality, HDMI inputs, etc. hands down, it's a no brainer to buy this tv. In fact if I had the money I would have bought two, it's that good. June 22, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent! A great and very affordable product. The good people at AVS Forum enthused about this TV and they were right. A brilliant and beautiful PQ, with basic features. The only negative is the rather loose stand, but that can be adjusted by user. February 3, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Plasmatize me captain I pretty much bought this television to play video games on. Great quality (especially with hdmi). Easy to use and install. The only con of course is the sound. Probably want to hook up some extra speakers. Even with out extra speakers it isn't that bad. Just have to jack up the volume a little bit more. October 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Value for your buck i would recommend this product to anyone first off the value of the television is great , secondly the picture quality at 1080p with a bluray is phenomenal. I use it primarily to watch bluray movies and play video games. I've owned this television for almost a year and do not regret buying it. thumbs up all the way around! October 26, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by First Time To Own A Plasma I have not reqretted my purchase of this TV since the day I have purchased it. It is everything that I wanted in a TV. I love the picuture, with the crispness, and large screen viewing. I did add a sound bar to add even more enjoyment to my experience of veiwing movies, and sports. October 24, 2011
