Summary: 15 months after our purchase, the television stopped working. It clicked when pressing the power button, but no picture or sound. I researched this (it was 3 months out of warranty) and found that it was common for the power supply board to fail on this -- and other -- LG models. It's so common that there is a cottage industry to sell fixes for the problem.
Summary: I've had this TV for about 8 months and the power supply burned out. Luckily it was still under the 1 year warranty and the customer service was excellent. Called the company and they ordered the parts and sent a technician out to my house to fix the TV free of charge.
Summary: Will not buy an LG product again. TV has sound but no picture after 17 months - coincidentally the warranty only lasts a year. Still trying to work out how to fix it but I think I've learned my lesson and will either purchase from TV companies that stand behind their product with a longer warranty or purchase from a company that backs the products they sell by extending the warranty.
Summary: We bought this plasma TV to hook up to our cable, computer and Apple TV. Since it is a plasma, it will have ghosting issues if you keep the screen on a single picture for a while. We found that simply flipping it to static for 30 seconds wipes away the ghosting. I like the TV, it has great viewing angles and deep blacks. I would probably get an LED TV if I need a computer monitor in the future. I have now had the TV about 1 year and 4 months and still no issues.
Summary: I Bought this TV in July of 2012, (16 months ago) it had great definition and colors, last night it died while I was watching a movie. It suddenly shut itself off and would not start up again. I checked to make the power plug was securely plugged in, all were secure. This TV has been plugged in into a UPS since the day I got it. What a waste of money! I will never buy a LG product again.
Summary: We've had this TV for about 9 months now, and are so happy with it. The 50" size is perfect for our size living room, and the picture quality is fantastic. It doesn't have any background buzzing noise, like some people have complained with plasma TVs. One feature that we especially love are all the HDMI USB ports. It makes it so easy to plug in our external hard drive and workout, watch movies, etc. The TV also has a lot of customizeable features with the display.
Summary: I got spoiled with my 60 inch which had a few more options but this has a fantastic picture and for the price I would buy it again. In fairness my 60 inch was over 3 times the price so this is a great buy !!
Summary: Screen powers off and wont stay on, just a splash of what you are watching, then powers off. Out of Warranty by 60 days or so. Not backed by amazon or LG. I called LG, since it's out of warranty (over one year) they could care less. They gave me 3 local "authorized" repair people. All quoted me $300-$500 to fix the issue. WASTE OF MONEY. Look elsewhere or go with a LCD not plasma.. we love our other LG 37" LCD too...such a shame. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.
