    The 42pm4700 would have been a good product, but there is one huge 'if...'. This plasma TV has grey anti-burnin bars on both left and right sides which appear when viewing content in 4:3 aspect ratio.

    LG has implemented them to minimize plasma burn-in effect, but they look extremely ugly and there is no option to turn them off or set color to dark grey. That's the great disappointment, because plasmas are bought mostly to watch ethereal TV which is 4:3, most of the time.

    See how it looks here:

    My suggestion: DON'T BUY this TV unless you are 100% sure that you will be watching HDTV channels ONLY.
