Summary: The LG PA4500 is a decent budget TV in many respects but its competitors are able to deliver bigger picture quality for the buck.
Pros: The LG PA4500 plasma TV is a budget model that provides plenty of detail in shadows and punchy colors. Video processing is also a highlight. LG's design is understated yet not gaudy as some cheap TVs tend to be. It uses less power than 1080p resolution plasmas of this size.
Cons: The LG's picture quality is otherwise lackluster. Its black levels are fairly poor in comparison with the equivalently priced Samsung E450. The LG suffers from solarization that manifests as distinct bands in gradated colors. The screen is quite reflective and not suited to a bright room.
