Summary: Pros: - Great color and display - Picture looks very sharp and clear - Picture viewing from the side of the TV is not too bad - Sound is OK Cons: - Display started having vertical lines after about a year and a half. However, LG customer service went out of the way repairing it for free. The picture now is even better than the picture when I first bought the TV.
Summary: This is the best tv I have ever owned. The picture is out of this world. It is easy to use and looks like a million bucks in my living room. Our friends all rave about it as does anyone who happens to see it. Our first plasma and I hope the plasma format is around for a long long time.
Summary: I bought this tv to replace a plasma that ended up dying on me after many years of service. I am very happy with it. I only have it for 2 days so far but right out of the box it looks great. I can't wait to fine tune it and configure it.
Pros: Performance, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
Summary: PQ was superb out of the box. Amazing features for the price. Colors, dark blacks, bright whites. Sports, movies, HDTV, bluray. Watchinhg TV is like sitting in a theater. You cannot go wrong with an LG plasma TV.
Summary: I bought this TV in Dec 2010 as a holiday upgrade for my living room. It was my first HDTV so I researched the subject extensively. I chose this unit for several reasons and it has proven to be a wise choice. First I really enjoy the deep contrast ratio of plasma TV's and this one looks great. Second, if you are comfortable "fine tuning" the settings the HD picture is highly adjustable.
Summary: The LG 50PK550 is a great value for the price. A 50" plasma TV with good quality for under a thousand bucks. Unfortunately this model is discontinued. I improved the picture by applying the settings recommended at[....] and the picture is great. However, the screen is highly reflective so it's no joke when they advise only using it in a darkened room.
