Summary: What can I say? This TV is amazing. As the title of this review says, all you need in this world is a 720P Plasma TV and some loved ones to accompany you. Just like most tech savvy, net savvy guys I did lot of research about Plasma Vs LCD Vs LED. While you can google all the good, bad and ugly about Plasma Vs LCD, one major factor for me was Color...rather colors. I want to see colors as they should. Black should be Black, Red should be Red etc.
Summary: Got it last x-mas... so far so good...Very nice TV! Overall 5 stars!!! The only bad thing I found is the USB port on it quite useless... Doesn't recognize my cannon sd780is which I think is popular camera. Also tried a 2gb thumb drive with no luck. Another thing is the only output on it is a optical for audio, that's it, no video or coax audio. Other then that thumbs up. LG is a good brand so I Knew it was going to be a good buy. Go for it!
Summary: This TV has a great picture. When watching in HD, the picture is simply stunning. This is only a 720P set, yet I can she minute details on the faces of people. Excellent in a darker room. The one thing that this TV lacks is some kind of glare reducer.
Summary: I have had this TV for about three months now and the picture quality is outstanding. In fact, the only imperfection I notice is a slight haloing effect when really bright elements are adjacent to really dark ones (I usually only see this during film credits with bright text on a black background but it's nothing major). This haloing effect seems due to the two-layer deign (a clear plastic layer set in front of the main plasma screen).
Summary: Listen ppl... you can go out shopping til you drop dead..looking for the right performance and value.. This is it. I've had this tv for over 5 weeks.. I couldn't be more pleased. For features, benefits and performance I am thrilled.. I have it attached to DirecTV HD.. on my dresser in the bedroom. Don't hesitate... if you are looking.. this is the one!
Summary: I was shopping for a tv for over six months. I just wanted one and my wife always said: what's wrong with the one we have?!... right off the bet, I knew 3 very important things 1. I'm getting a name-brand ( either Sony, Panasonic, LG or Samsung) 2. I'm getting a Plasma ( my brother own a Mitsubishi 50" for 4 years, a model that is no longer in production and cost over $3k, and any TV I've seen never came close to this one, so LCD was out.
Love this plasma television (update after a year of use)

Summary: I've had the LG 42PQ30 plasma tv for about 2 months now and I'm still learning how to use more of its features. The other day I upconverted my dvds to 1080p and noticed the TV picked up the signal as 1080/60p. Then i figured wow I got a 1080p television at a 720p plasma tv price. What a nice tv, I was able to display 1920 by 1080 resolution from my pc vga output even though the picture is a little washed out because of vga resolution limitations.
Summary: I bought this TV about three months ago after strongly considering both Panasonic and Samsung, both of which were priced roughly $100 more. I was a little concerned that I'd get what I paid for and get a lesser quality TV. But I am thrilled with the picture quality, the amazing contrast, and the excellent brightness. Whether watching DVD movies, playing the playstation, or just watching a game, there is not much out there for $600 that is better than this.
Summary: @ 720p people make a big deal about 1080p being superior when in fact, the difference is minute depending on your viewing distance. The LG 42PQ30 is an absolute steal in terms of value, picture quality, and size. I use my LG Netflix ready Blu-Ray player on this TV and the colors and image quality are spectacular - deep blacks, fluid motions, vibrant visuals, and great sound give this HDTV the best value for your money.
