Summary: This TV has a great picture, and 50" is plenty big for my living room. My only reservation is that it is an energy hog and gets very hot, which increases the load on the air conditioner in our hot Texas summers. It does have various energy saving settings, which dim the picture a bit, but produce less heat and use less electricity, and I use the energy saving settings in the summer.
Summary: I have read several reviews on this LG plasma TV, and other users have also experienced serious problems after one year of usage (beyond the warranty period). Check out the user reviews on LG's website. Several users experienced the same problem with the unit malfunctioning suddenly and turning itself on and off in rapid sequence. Fortunately, I had purchased the unit using my AMEX which extended the warranty automatically.
Summary: The TV will only pick up 1/4 the channels over the air that my Tivax converter box will. The program info only gives the present info. My Tivax gives info for many hours. The closed caption is dificult to use. Why don't they make the closed captions at the bottom of the screen? The CC are in the midle of the screen. Why can't they make the CC's adjustible from the upper left corner to the lower right corner? Excelent picture on the three channels I can get in HD.
Summary: We purchased this TV nearly two months ago. We received a broken TV, severely broken. 6th Avenue customer service is pure BS. We've been getting run around to Amazon, 6th ave, and their random shipper for over a month now with no resolution in sight. No one, (even Amazon whom I thought could do no wrong), seems to care at all. LG makes great products, and I'm sure this unit works fabulously when it arrives in working condition. DO NOT PURCHASE FROM 6th AVE ELECTRONICS!!!
Will never buy a Samsung again LG Plasma is the best.....

Summary: Bought this TV at Sam's Club a year ago, and it has performed flawlessly! Picture looks better than any dlp, lcd, or led that Ive seen! Also no stupid lamps that burn out within a year. I replaced 2 in my Samsung within 2 years, never sgain. TV stays on half the day and no degradation in quality at all! Also blu ray, ps3, and Xbox all look great on it! If you can find this TV, buy it, you won't be sorry.
