Summary: Great picture and OK sound. Controls are clear and easy to understand. Not a smart TV, but what do you want for $400? I've added Apple TV, which gives me all the internet I need for a total of less than $500. Main quibble is that there are only two HDMI ports, so DVD connection will have to be component. Oh, well.
Summary: Every LG product I've owned has been good to me so far, with the exception of a certain AT&T phone which I won't mention. I've owned an LG LCD monitor for the past 3-4 years, and it hasn't failed on me yet. With this in mind, I decided to go with LG for my first HDTV purchase. It arrived on time, albeit the delivery guy was about half an hour early on the estimated time (which I'm not complaining about, but was a tad unprofessional) and very thankfully was not broken.
Summary: I bought this TV for the bedroom and was very happy to get rid of the 36" TriniTON. This is a great replacement. Won't go into any details on the specs but will simply jump right into my one gripe. Usually, when turning on the TV, there are visible red pixels throughout the screen regardless of the source. This usually only lasts for a few seconds then it's not a problem until the next time I turn it on.
Summary: If you are picky about setting the gray scale and the color this is the best set at this price . The only thing it lacks is proper zooming for OTA Standard Def letterboxed shows . The cinema zoom only works for HD channels and just streches the SD. while it zooms it .
Summary: Really enjoying this plasma. The picture is fantastic from where I sit about 12 feet away. I generally use it for FIOS or gaming and 720p is what is broadcasted, so I'm not missing anything by not having a 1080p set. The set is also pretty slim and fairly easy to move around. If you have trouble spending a lot of money on technology that becomes yesterday's news so quickly, this TV proves you don't have to to get some quality kit.
