Summary: We compared reviews and picture quality on the three major television technologies: LED, LCD, and Plazma. It seems that they all have their own benifits. We decided on the Plazma because of the picture and razor thin profile. Then we compared all the brands that we liked rating picture quality, features, and value. The LG came out on top. We think this unit is Supa-Dupa!!
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Quality, best value!
Summary: I'm very pleased with the quality of the television. However the Owners' Manual bears 10 model numbers and has very little relationship to my TV, making it almost useless . The same could be said about the instructional emails which came from LG. I called LG tech. support and was fortunate to reach a person named Ike who was very patient and also possessed the requisite skills to help me set up the picture and sound properly.
Summary: I have had this tv for 5 days and I find myself smiling while watching it. The picture is superb and I haven't even tried a full 1080p bluray..this is just from watching hd cable in 720p! I spent weeks researching televisions, and when I would go to stores, every single customer service rep would give me the same line about how led was better (for gaming and sports), and plasmas have burn in and more power consumption (how do they even sale plasmas).
Summary: Having the great LG 50PA6500 50-inch 1080p 600 Hz Plasma HDTV it invariably "shrunk" over time and I lusted for a 60". I go to HHGregg to see what was available at the time and to see if I could haggle a similar price to Amazon's which at the time had the LG 60PA6500 60-Inch 1080p 600Hz Plasma HDTV for $828 as a "like new" warehouse deal. They had the 60PA6500, but the salesman instead offered the 60PA5500 (negligible differences) for $785 tax included.
Summary: I REASEARCHED A LOT OF FLAT SCREENS BEFORE BUYING THIS ONE. I DID NOT WANT 3D BUT ALL THE OTHER FEATURES I WANTED WERE IN THIS SET. I CHOSE PLASMA TO GET TRUE BLACK COLOR AND TO BE ABLE TO SEE FROM A SIDE ANGLE. THIS SET MET MY EXPECTATIONS PERFECTLY. I ALSO LOVE THE AUTO LIGHT ADJUSTING FEATURE.
Summary: This TV looks so amazing that on HD channels I can see the makeup on the actors' faces!!! Gaming through my PS3 and 360 both look absolutely amazing!! Absolutely amazing for $800 and looks miles better than the 15-1700 dollar LEDs I've seen!!! Very happy as I watch a lot of wrestling, UFC, and huge gamer...for a 60" under a grand if you watch sports, fast movies, and play a lot of games I definitely recommend!!! It's super thin and stylish as well..
