Rated 5 out of 5 by mcmatt67 beautiful picture quality
I use this in a large basement exercise and game room. As with any plasma, it is highly reflective of any ambient light. So thought must be put into room lighting and window coverings. In a dark room, this is a bright and sharp display that can be viewed from virtually any angle. It is amazing for high def content even when viewed from only a short distance - like 5 or 6 feet. Gaming with Xbox One or PS is fantastic. No lag noticed as I have heard can be a problem with plasma TVs.
I can't say enough about how well it renders black. Just last night I watched a movie that had a completely blacked out scene - only a quiet audio track playing - in the dark room, the TV disappeared! An LCD display could not do that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jed nice plasma for the price
Got a really good deal for this tv. Like all the features of the tv. Things I dont like, does not have full dvd remote control with a lg player, and once tv is turned on it takes a few seconds before it reapnds to the remote, and wish it had a sturdyer stand. Yes i would make this purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vlad_vm how to make ARC work
If you have a receiver that supports ARC (e.g. Denon AVR-1713), you can make the sound from Netflix, Youtube etc.. come out of your receiver by using HDMI1(ARC) from the 60PB6600 TV and connecting it to your receiver. The problem is that LG TV has no write-up how to do this and some people just give up and use optical cable.
Here are the steps how to set-up ARC
1. On the remote, push Simplink button to get to the Simplink menu.
2. turn Simplink ON
3. then set the sound to External (ARC)
4. exit the Simplink menu
5. then push Setting button to get to the settings menu
6. select Audio
7. change the sound output to External
now you will be able to hear the sound come out of your receiver and also be able to turn the volume up/down or turn the receiver on/off using only the TV remote.

Rated 5 out of 5 by goldsheet Best TV I have ever owned
Despite improvements in LCD/LED, plasma still has the best picture. The only negative is the glossy screen and glare from light, but this model is acceptable in that regard.
Plasma prices are extremely competitive and I purchased this TV at a fantastic price, making it a great value.
East to setup and worked perfectly. Had a very good picture and required a minimal amount of adjustment to factory settings.
The SMART TV features are OK, but a little difficult to use. My TV did not come with a WiFi dongle, but a quick chat on lg.com and they sent me one for free.
I am a very satisfied LG customer. In addition to this 60" plasma, I also have a 42" LG plasma, and a LG washer, dryer, and refrigerator. All great products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by chi73 Great Tv
I love this tv. It has a great picture with great sound.I'm actually not using my surround system with it since the sound is so good. This replaced my previous 9 y.o. LG plasma. Since I had such good luck with the first purchase I wanted to stick with this brand and I didn't see a LED/LCD that could compare to it. I would have liked a sturdier stand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mcbenjy OUTSTANDING!!!!
To get the optimal picture/sound performance, read the manual and then start with the initial set-up. All the various settings for picture and sound make this TV an OUTSTANDING value. It came with a free LG AN-WF500 wifi bluetooth USB Dongle that increases the viewing pleasure with Netflix, HULU, Redbox Direct, YouTube, Skype as well as several other options. I initially went in to electronics store for a different brand Plasma TV but was blown away by the picture quality, sharp, vivid colors/details and the Smart TV feature! The price I paid for the unit during the 4th of July sale was too good to pass up. I used the money I saved to pick up a blu-ray player and sound bar. The available HDM and USB ports made it simple to connect the Dongle, cable box, blu-ray player, Wii and video camera for Skype. Family video/game night will never be the same.....ba-zinga!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Max This has a great picture!
Bought this on sale at Micro Center, watch for it! It has numerous Smart TV streaming features, includes wired and wireless network connections. and has an absolutely beautiful picture out of the box. There are also many adjustments to tweak the picture to your liking.
My only minor complaint is that it does generate a bit of heat, so make sure it is in a well-ventilated area.
Plasma just has a warmer look and feel to the picture, I prefer it over LED. Buy this TV!

Rated 5 out of 5 by higrpwd Awesome TV
I bought this tv because I know the Plasma's are heading out and I know that they have the best pictures around! This is my 3rd plasma tv and the largest of them all. My others are Panny's and maybe because this is newer its got the best picture as far as I'm concerned. I LOVE the size and for the money it can't be beat! I've had LED and LCD and they are too bright and I cant stand the soap opera affect. I jumped on this when I saw it.. figured this will be a great tv to hold me over till the 4k tv's come down in price. I am very happy with this baby!
