Summary: This TV is awsome. Set up was easy and it connected to my router fairly quick. The app center is nice as well. The motion mouse takes some getting used to but it's a great addition to have when scrolling through app menus. And to my amazement the remote even has an app that allows it to work with my dish network hopper. I'm still getting use to all the cool features this TV has but I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a Smart TV at a decent price.
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: After seeing the CNET review, I was ready to totally dismiss this TV as an option...but, the matte screen, plasma, great looks, and awesome price finally lured me back in. I definitely have no regrets. It is a GREAT looking TV with a beautiful picture from every seating area in the room. I love the ease of using the smart "magic" remote that is included...finding it very easy to navigate. I did do a firmware update as soon as I received.
