Summary: I purchased the LG 50PM6700 it was delivered by Pilot Service out of the Bay Area. That TV did not work and they left with it the same day. Three weeks later the second LG 50PM6700 was delivered by the same company and we discovered after they left a black line one inch down from the top of the screen that would not go away. Amazon let us upgrade to a LG 50PM9700 and it was delivered on March 22, 2013.
Summary: I have been researching hdtvs for the past two years and have used Consumer Reports in my research. After reviewing many different brands and models of hdtvs, I settled on the LG 50PM9700 50 inch Plasma because of the good price that Video and Audio had on it. Consumer Reports recommendes this hdtv. It has an excellent picture and the remote control is great. The setup was easy, and the base is unique compared to other hdtvs.
Summary: I managed to pick this TV up for a song and I am extremely pleased. I wasn't expecting it to be as fast moving through the smart TV features nor for them to be as extensive. It just automatically plugged into practically everything I had and went to work delivering a great picture (after using the wizard) and surprisingly good sound. 5 out of 5.
Summary: After reading about many plasma sets, we chose this based on previous experiences with LG televisions. The picture quality, true black levels, and the HD modes as well as the reviews we read told us that this was a set worth having.
Summary: This TV was purchased after our Sharp Aquos 52 inch died after 4 years of service, bought in 2008. Initial impression: colors are perfect both with component (red, green, blue) or HDMI cable though HDMI adds more life into the picture, makes sound better as well. We are with the CableVision and Atlanta Energy box for TV channels.
