Rated 5 out of 5 by stevencheryl Plasma is the only way to go with TVs
It seems like plasma tvs are going out of style with all of the LED and LCD options available. I have a brain injury and have problems with the LED and LCD tvs. Especially when the picture "pans" in any direction. I see it freeze frame for a short time, but it is enough to give me a headache. This is one of the reasons that I love plasma tvs. They don't have the glitchy "pan" that the other tvs do. The refresh rate is fast enough (even on this huge tv!) to avoid it.
The price is a great value. I almost bought the "smart" version, but with my blu ray player being a smart device, I can run everything I need directly through the blu ray.
The quality is great. I can't say enough about this LG product. I am so happy every time I turn it on that I find myself smiling. It's huge! I love it!
The features that the tv doesn't have are easily fixed with external equipment that is inexpensive to buy (if you don't already own it).
Overall a great tv that I plan on having for years!
This review is asking me to state my primary reason for purchasing the tv. I wrote online research, but it wasn't only the research I did that convinced me that this was the tv for me. The quality, the name brand, the price, the ease of customer service (my experience in the past with LG, and with this tv also), it also was highly recommended by almost every review that I read on it and by a few friends that also purchased the tv.

Rated 1 out of 5 by very disappointed dane Television went out before two years
I loved this TV and the picture is excellent. About six months ago the hdmi port 1 stopped working and now my whole tv went out. I would not recommend because paying for a television and only lasting two years is not a bargain to me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by whitespiral Basic TV for people with basic needs
Great screen size and image quality for the money. Construction seems solid and looks good. Easy initial setup. It's heavy, but that also means sturdy, I have no fear of my 1 year old child stumbling on it and moving it.
Sound could be better. Just 2 HMDI and 1 USB connector. If HDMI1 connector is used, plugging and unplugging the USB is a pain to do, so small available space for the fingers. Video playback on USB port is impossible due to firmare, and you can't change the firmware. The infrared detector for the remote is located in the lower left corner, and you have to aim the remote control carefully or it won't work. Screen is too reflective during daylight. I know it's not a smart TV, but I would expect at least an ethernet port. Remote control looks and feels cheap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mundy507 outstanding picture quality at a bargain price
Easy to set up & fine tune for best picture & sound. Simple easy to use remote. only shortcoming is that it should have one more HDMI port.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nascartrekkie3 Awesome Picture!
I had heard that plasmas were not as bright as the led's but after having this TV I know that is simply not true. Bright screen, vivid colors, rich deep black levels, and absolutely no blur, no matter what I am watching. I absolutely LOVE this TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Patrick H. Excellent picture
We found this TV shopping online at a reasonable price then saw it at an even better price at a black Friday. We immediately rushed out and bought it because we were afraid it would sell out. After getting it home at setting it up we realized what a great product this was. After configuring signal in HD mode we were even more pleased. This is an excellent TV - All of our friend have given us positive feedback (even the ones who cautioned us about the perceived drawbacks of plasma).
