Summary: 12/11 UPDATE: I've had this set now for about 16 months and I'm still very happy with it. I managed to buy a replacement remote control that works perfectly so switching inputs is less of a chore.
Summary: Very Pleased with my purchase. The TV is sharp, thin, and has a great picture for the price. I would have given it 5 stars based on value, but some of the newer TV's you see out there have such amazing picture quality that I couldn't give this one a perfect review.
Good TV performance, but disappointing functionality

Summary: Here are some comments on secondary attributes that customers may find useful. I also hope LG reads these and improves their design. Like many people, I read a lot of reviews and put most emphasis on picture quality, assuming that any top-of-the line manufacturer would have functionality issues...
Summary: It is Plasma but it is a great TV. I never thought of buying an HDTV as our old 27" is woking okay so why spend so much on a TV. Recently saw the prices going down and retailers getting rid of old inventory so I started my search and compared Plasma vs LCD.
Summary: Purchased this TV from Amazon at a great price. Only $623.00 with free delivery! I even got 24 months financing with my Amazon store card. This is my second LG TV I have purchased. My first was a 42" 1080p LCD. After 3 years of service I noticed faint vertical stress marks in the picture.
Great for the price, but know what you are getting!

Summary: Come on folks...what do you expect for the near $700 price point in a plasma! I bought this set for one reason, and one reason only...it's size. I have an old cabinet that was custom made for a 50" Rear Projection set many years ago.
Summary: I was evaluating plasma tvs for about a month on amazon befor i finally settled on this one. Price was one of my biggest concern as i got an entire home theater system consisting of the sherwood rd7503 reciver and a polk audio 5.1 speaker system with this. The other concern was shipping.
