Rated 4 out of 5 by A long relationship? Short Ownership-so far so good
Reviews indicated great picture. So so when I plugged it in but after a few days of "fine tuning" the picture is very good. I have not been able to connect an older home theatre system to the audio although it worked with a late model 55" Vizio. Probably something I'm missing on hook up. Need to call LG techs I guess. I like the way it updates the Smart TV program on a regular basis.

Extremely pleased with my purchase of this LG 60" Plasma! I did a ton of research and found nothing even close in this price range.
I'm technical, so I compared the specs with brands and models in all price ranges. Nothing compared in my opinion.
This TV has to be one of the most underated and best kept secrets on the market today. Do your research and compare the specs. The only TVs that begin to compare cost several thousand dollars more!
I spent about two hours configuring the set to my specifications. Do a search on "Tanveer Chaudry's user settings on the 6500" and you will find a review done by a professional technician that explains how to use custom settings to configure the set. It's worth the extra time and effort. Then use the Picture Wizard to adjust each setting to your liking.
Once you have done that, go through every setting to customize the sound, aspect ratio and anything else you can find to fine tune the TV to perform the way you want it to. You won't be sorry. It is well worth putting forth the extra effort to get every detail just right.
What you wind up with is an amazingly accurate picture with a full range of beautiful colours amd a very sharp, detailed viewing experience. I've never seen anything like it!
I am one of those that prefer plasma over LED. That's what first drew me to LG and this model. Dark scenes are incredibly clean and detailed with various shades of gray and black. You can actually see what is going on!
Ignore anything anyone says about the sound. It's a television. What do you expect? I connected it to my 900 watt 5.1 Surround system. This completed my home theatre experience.
Friends and neighbors are green with envy. They all spent much more and have smaller screens, dull colours and streaking during fast action scenes. I experience none of that and I likely paid a third of what they did.
Believe me when I say, you will not be dissapointed. I have no regrets whatsoever and enjoy movies, concerts and music videos with unbelievable clarity and sharpness. Deep accurate colours. Clean fast action without streaking or blurring.
I am very happy with my purchase and plan to purchase another LG television for another room. In bright light or in a dark room, the picture quality is stunning. I never believed I could be the envy of the neighborhood with my home theatre setup. This was the final piece of my configuration and has given me the status I have always dreamed of.
LG, you did it this time. You created a viewing experience like no other at a price point that the average person can afford!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kingyman8189 Great TV at a great price!
This is my first smart TV and my first Plasma. I was a little concerned for the first two days because the picture was not very crisp. However after the initial burn in period, the picture is now awesome! Compared to an LCD, the screen is dark grayish when off rather than black. There is a reflection on the glass but it is not a problem for me since the sun never hits the screen in my den. The Smart TV features are OK but not wonderful - I rarely use them. The sound is OK but not great due to the rear facing speakers. I purchased the LG LAP340 sound plate so I can use the TV remote to control the sound plate and get much better sound.
Overall and terrific purchase and I would recommend the TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by crazyabouttaz1282 THE BEST VIEWING EXPERIENCE EVER!!!!
I have bought all brands of TV's over the last 14 year's, never, ever, have I had as much satisfaction from a purchase as I've had from this TV. Great app content, mirrorcast is seamless, and my XBOX ONE GAMES looks incredible. And the sound!!!! Omg my TITANFALL game looks and sounds like I'm in the middle of the action. You can hear the ammo droping, the robots servos as it moves, and the bass sounds like if I had a home theater. I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS PLASMA TV. Thank you LG for this great product and my LG flex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ray59 It's a SMART TV! GREAT PRICE AND FEATURES
Been looking for a big flat screen TV for awhile, I like plasma TV's. Found this one and haven't look back. Very happy with picture, sound and size. If you don't like the shiny screen, don't buy a plasma.

This is excellent TV. My first purchase for large size TV and can not complain. It has very nice sound quality. The video quality is at par or better than LED.
Would highly recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bob D great value for midline plasma
Provided you're able to purchase this TV in the $800-900 price range it's a great value for a mid-line plasma TV. I've seen it as low as $600 and as high as $1,200 so you do have to shop for a good price.
The picture is very satisfactory and the built in wifi receiver connects quickly & automatically to your wifi. I like the great number of pre-installed wifi program choices & the limited functionality (no download/upload) browser. These features are much easier to navigate and much more extensive than a high-line Panasonic plasma with no browser we have.
Another feature I really like is the LG remote control smartphone app which gives you a cursor to navigate the TV's screen. The supplied remote is not very well ergonomically designed so you're either going to want to use the smartphone remote app or purchase LG's Magic remote.
Overall I'm very pleased with this TV. As long as you don't need 3D or want to play games it's a great TV for the price.
This is my first LG TV so I can't comment on the long term reliability and I've had no need to contact LG tech support for the TV so I just hope it's a lot better than it was for a LG BlueRay player I had to return.
You'll probably need an extension cord to plug it in as the supplied cord is very short.
I recommend this TV and would buy it again.
