Excerpt: LG is telling anyone who cares to listen that it’s ‘Sky’s brand of choice’ for 3D tellies, and it’s been uniquely prolific about offering 3D models in every type of TV technology. So far we’ve had direct and edge LED, CCFL LCD and even a Passive 3D LCD model to go with the more popular Active ones. To date only two things have been missing from LG’s 3D lineup: consistently enjoyable 3D picture quality in a plasma model. Hopefully this panel will put that right.
Cons: Annoying image retention; black levels not class-leading; one pair of 3D glasses only
Excerpt: LG has a knack of turning out TVs that look (in the showroom and on paper, at least) more expensive than they are. But unlike the staunchly ordinary 47LX6900 , this 50PX990 has the performance to make good on its specification. Easy to use, with great pictures This is a smoothly good-looking plasma (we've become better disposed towards LG's ‘single layer' design since it stopped calling it ‘frameless'), and it has all the functionality you could expect at the price.
Pros: Thoughtful design, extensive spec, across-the-board ability with most sources
Cons: TV reception could be better, sound doesn’t excite
