Summary: I won this tv and it took the place of a 32" LCD 720p tv in my living room. The picture looks really good to me, at least as good as the 32", but it lacks features like internet connectivity and the only audio out is digital optical, which was a little bit disappointing. The menus are easy to use, colorful and have large, easy to read text. I just used a preset for the display settings and it looks great.
Summary: I am not a videophile but I will say that my other TV is a 50" Pioneer Kuro plasma TV purchased right as Pioneer exited the TV business, so I have very high standards when it comes to picture quality. I purchased this TV sight unseen; I was looking for a low-end plasma to put into a rec area in our basement. For the $500 I paid there is no way to guarantee a good picture quality unless you go plasma. LCD's in this size and price range just can't match up.
Summary: Great Plasma TV set, no it is not 1080P but with an HD signal with an HDMI cable you will be more than satisfied with your purchase. This is our second set (same model etc). We were so happy with the first one we got for our family room, that we purchased a second set as a computer monitor. Looks great on the wall and give us ample space on our computer desk to work. Real estate is huge and a great PC display.
Summary: I was hesitant about buying a tv online. Our purchase was fulfilled through Amazon and free shipping was selected. I was pleased that the driver called with an approximate ( 4 hr window ) delivery time. Television arrived on schedule in great condition. As for the LG PJ350 my wife an I had viewed several sets in brick and mortar stores. Her concern was price, mine quality.
Summary: After choosing Plasma over LCD, I narrowed my options down by price. I was shooting for the $500 range and this set fit the bill. It arrived ahead of schedule and I set it up without issues. The color depth and richness is quite nice and the set preforms well with my xBox 360. This is my first HD set (I'm not exactly an early adopter) and after viewing it for a few weeks I have decided that it is well worth the money.
Summary: Haven't done a whole lot with it so far, but for a little over $500, I can't ask for a much better value. The picture is pretty solid, it helps to avoid as much glare as possible. Perfect for my dorm room.
Great Picture, Great Value, But HDMI Audio Issues .

Summary: Recently purchased this LG 42PJ350 42" 720p Plasma TV online for under five hundred bucks delivered. (Amazon says this one year old model has been available "since 2003" ? An obvious misprint.) We use it in our small (12' x 12') living room to mostly watch High Definition cable TV broadcasts, DVR recordings, and an occasional DVD movie. We watch a considerable amount of sports, and are not Blu-Ray collectors nor video gamers.
Summary: This is the first LG television that our family has owned and after looking at several models this model offered the most features and a very good quality picture for the money. The tones are definitely softer than a traditional LCD, but overall we are pleased. The only down side is that the sound does not match the quality of the picture, it can only truly be appreciated with a surround sound/home theatre system which is all I use with it.
Pros: easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality, add a best feature
Summary: Looking for a bargain tv for my father-in-law who is definitely not a video techie...found this LG which was reviewed in CR. Reviews read here looked good and the price was right so went forward and purchased it for about $500 delivered to my doorstep. First impressions out of the box was that it was pretty slim and had simple,clean cosmetics. Hooked it up to HD cable and was happy with the picture quality, sound, and user friendly controls/set up.
