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: 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: We've had our new 50" LG plasma TV for about a month now and we are thoroughly enjoying it. We're feeding it with digital cable and the images are phenomenal. Some of the features that we've already found useful are the Cinema Zoom to fill the screen with a DVD image that is HD aspect ratio but with box bars on all four sides, and the feature of setting image size automatically according to broadcast.

Summary: Purchase the 50PA6500 50" plasma set three weeks ago. The setup was fast, unclomplicated, and the picture quality was easy to manipulate with the onscreen control. Am very pleased with the result. I did overide the energy limiting feature because I prefer an image other than the limiting control of the energy saver. That was easy to do and I can match any set out there in color and brightness in the price range that I paid.
Pros: Performance, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
Summary: 1/6/14 Update - Still works great and have had no issues! I definitely recommend! I purchased this TV on black Friday of 2012. I have only owned it for about 3 months so take that into consideration when reading this review. The product came on time and was packaged nicely. However when it was delivered they tried to get me to pay for a white glove service (basically pay them to prove that it works and they set it up for you).
