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: I'm a no frills kind of person. 3D - Gives me headaches. Smart Functions - Hate them. Streaming Media - Who wants to watch standard definition content on a HDTV? I just hook up my Blu-ray player and receiver and I'm good to go. This television is perfect for my needs. Just calibrated and it blows away sets costing twice as much.
Summary: The images are crystal clear and has a great picture. We have it in fairly bright room and you can still see the picture fine. I only wish the volume was adjustable on the optical output so you would not need multiple remotes.
Picture is not sharp on PS3 games even after calibration :(

Summary: Well i bought this TV primary to have better gaming experience playing my PS3 on it. The problem is that when i play shooter game like MW3 the screen is so foggy/not sharp so i can barely see a target. It all looks like the picture is lacking contrast or sharpness. I dont know how to fix that, i did calibration that guys recommend here, didnt help, i found another settings specifically for this model- also didnt help at all.
Summary: This LG 50" plasma meets or exceeds my expectations for my living room. Color is good, the color temperature presets "sports", "cinema", maybe 1-2 others met my needs without a bunch of fiddling, but there is a custom setting available... The speakers on the TV are pretty tinny. I'll eventually hook this up to an audio system... Overall, I'm quite happy with this purchase.
Summary: This is our first HD TV, so we have no basis of comparison, but it is living up to expectations. We picked plasma because the set had to be viewed from various angles, and it does that well. We were concerned by reports about reflection on the screen, but that is no problem, even when our windows are uncovered. Bright standing lights do reflect but they are easily turned off when we watch.
Summary: I was going to go with a panasonic plasma for 800 which was a lower tier for panasonic plasma's but them apparently being the best in plasma tv's I was skeptical about choosing anything else. But when I saw how fat the tv was, I quickly thought twice and started looking at other slimmer Tv's on amazon. This one is super thin and beautifully designed. That was what made me want to rate it 5 stars at first.. The price on this 50PA6500 is what caught my attention.
Summary: This TV had a great picture. But the sound leaves alot to be desired. Will have to add a soundbar or home theatre system to improve the audio. The standard remote that came with this tv is horrible. You definitely have to use two hands when operating it. Plus I have NEVER, EVER seen a TV that doesnt have a "CLOSED CAPTION" button on the remote.
