A really wonderful picture for watching movies, sporting events and broadcast programs. The built-in speaker's sound quality is good and can get loud enough by themselves. The only complaint I have is the power cord that came with it was about 6" short of reaching my wall receptacle. I had to position the unit off middle in my entertainment center until I could get an extension. Otherwise, a great value for a large plasma.

A lot of features, but horrible for gaming.
I was happy with this TV until I turned on my PS3. I researched online to try to "fix" the TV for gaming, but the fact is this panel has 70ms of lag. It's horrible. For watching TV it was fine, but gaming was unejoyable. I bought a Panasonic S60 to replace this and am WAY happier. Better picture, deeper blacks, and no gaming issues. LG has more online features, but I'll never use them personally. At any rate, plasma beats LCD - just don't expect to use this for gaming.

I bought this TV for my bedroom. The picture is so sharp I now see all the flaws in peoples skin. The colors are fantastic. I can lay in bed and watch my Netflix account! Hooking up to the internet was tricky at first. My TV did not see my wireless router but saw all my neighbors routers. My computer saw my wireless router but the TV did not. Turns out that I had to do a hard reset on my router and problem was gone! The TV hooked up to my router very quickly and after that no problems. The blacks are really black and the contrast is really good. I was so surprised by the sound from this TV that I returned the sound bar I bought. For the bedroom the sound is really good in my opinion, the living room that is another story. There are so many ways you can adjust the picture and sound to your liking. There are lots of smart features, honestly I have so much to watch between my blue ray, satellite dish, and Netflix that I have not needed to investigate the other apps... may be one day when I am bored and run out of stuff to watch. The screen is glossy so if you have a light source in the room you will see it reflected. Since I like to watch TV in a dark room this is not a problem. The TV does give off a small amount of heat but in the summer the AC can handle it and in the winter it helps cut the chill, no deal breaker (not like it is a blast furnace). I am very happy with this TV. The instructions are a little vague in some areas but I just played with the controls until I figured things out (not like I am going to blow anything up). To think 5-10 years ago a TV like this was $10K or more, wonderful bargain.
