Summary: this tv at these specs was a great deal at $700 . i live close to los angeles so didnt mind the pick up only option. unit was $250 below average market price.great picture quality at 1080p.hooked up my ps3 and enjoying blu-ray movies at full capacity.loving it.seller was a great person to deal with too.would recommend him to everyone.
Summary: I bought this TV on price to replace a Sony 42" plasma that gave up. The LG TV certainly looks good and I like the attention to hardware details like the glass protection of the plasma surface and the 4 HDMI ports. The setup is made simple by a rather clever and intuitive menu for calibrating color and brightness. Out of the box the color was way off but I managed to get a very acceptable image using the built in setup system.
Summary: This has been a wonderful TV for me. The picture quality is excellent, the TV itself looks good. It connects with all of my devices easily. The only con with this TV is that images can "burn" themselves onto the screen, meaning if an image is left on the screen for an extended period of time that image will be noticeable while not being displayed. This has not been a problem with my TV but it is a constant fear of mine that this will happen with my TV.
Summary: Looked at some 720p and LCD sets. Went with plasma to get better picture for the money. Glad I held out to get this 1080p THX set. Picture is incredible. Can see some faint image retention when screen goes blank sometimes. It is not bad and don't believe this is long-term concern.
Summary: What can I say, the 50PS60 is about the least expensive 1080p, 50" plasma I could find, and it's a 2009 model, too, I believe. The picture is terrific, with nice deep blacks, very crisp images, bright whites. No question it takes some fiddling to get the color settings right (I'm probably pickier in this regard than most), but you might be happy just choosing the THX setting and leave it at that.
