What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV at a Great Price!!! I am very happy with this television. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars on features is because it does not mute the sound when you turn the TV on before the cable is turned on. So if you aren't on a tuned channel you get the loud NOISE! Awesome picture and the TV itself looks great in the room. I am looking in to purchasing another one for my son.

I HAVE TO SAY TIME HAS PASSED AND TECHNOLOGY HAS ADVANCED A LITTLE ALONG THE WAY, BUT MY THOUGHTS REMAIN THE SAME. THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST, AND MOST SHEEK I HAVE SEEN THUS FAR.

I PROMISE IT WILL BE ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS YOU'LL EVER MAKE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plasma is great I don't get why people buy lcd instead of plasma innless you get a led lcd. Plasma is cheaper and higher quality and this particular is also energy efficient. Plasmas don't burn images anymore. LG has done a great a job with this tv. I might not have a bunch of fancy features but most people have a game console or computer hooked up to their tvs which give you all the features you need. It does have a usb port which is nice for viewing pictures or just playing music.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value for Money This is my first plasma TV and it works great and perfect value for your money. I have always purchased LCD Tvs before and I think plasma is better for movies and games especialy if its LG. I purchased this TV cause I plan to buy an LG Blu ray player soon

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG Plasma 42 This is an amazing TV. I finally decided to get a plasma flat screen after reading Consumer Reports about them for several years. The highly rated LG has certainly not been a disapointment. The resolution and depth of color are very good, and the fact that it takes up so little space is a big plus. I can't imagine why this product would be discontinued, when it is such a winner! Those of us who don't want absolutely-enormous should be able to find products of this quality.
