The LG PK-550 60-inch TV is a winner across the board
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I spend a lot of time researching electronics and don't buy products unless they are well-reviewed. While there are many people who recommend Panasonic plasma TVs, I've read too many reports of image and technical problems. I wanted something that was hassle-free, inexpensive and minimum 55-inches. I bought the LG in May 2010 and have not had one problem with it. It's an impressive TV if you want plasma - the picture quality is top notch. I've seen no resolution or...
Excerpt: Great price for this LG Plasma TV but falls behind in HDMI connections, internet connectivity, glare and black levels. Remote control has a backlight which is useful if you're in a dark room. The USB input lets you view photo and listen to music straight from your USB thumbdrive. Not much of an energy hog if using the energy saving mode (an option which can be activated/deactivated with a touch of a button on the remote).
Summary: I purchased this TV from Amazon in November of 2010 and I've been extremely happy with its picture quality for Cable, Blu-Ray, Xbox360 and PS3. My only complaint is the occasional humming you get that I only hear when my surround sound isn't on. The internal speakers are also not very good at all, but I rarely use them because its connected to my receiver.
Summary: We've had this TV for about a year and it's great. My husbands only complaint is that the image is really dark. This is after adjusting the brightness and contrast to get the best image that we could. I, myself, am not super picky and don't claim to have a great eye and think that the image quality is fantastic. This is a great TV and I would totally recommend it.
Summary: I had been watching 55" & bigger tv deals for a few months when I finally pulled the trigger on this deal. It was $1099.99 no tax & free shipping from an amazon vendor named Paul's. I knew that this tv was not the best you could get, but I also knew I would be upgrading in a few years when the big brands sorted out the 3D fiasco. The tv I had been watching was a 50" 720p from fall 2007. This LG was a huge improvement. I have absolutely no complaints about this tv.
Summary: PROS: Huge screen, quality picture, attractive design, and many features for the price (paid $1099). CONS: Glare and buzzing. I had to double-take when I saw the sale price of $1099 several weeks ago (deal was on another website). From all of my countless researching and deal-checking, this size of TV for that price was unbeatable.
Summary: I have been researching for a while the purchase of our new TV. I researched plasma vs. LCD vs. LED. I read many reviews of various TV's and finally made the decision to purchase this TV. We had a rear projection TV before this one that was 10 years old. After putting the new TV in place I was absolutely blown away by the image quality. I will rate a few items below: SETUP and DELIVERY: Setup was a breeze.
Summary: I was initially happy with my purchase but soon after realized that this plasma and the company behind it are flawed. Within 7 days of initial power up the TV began to turn itself off every few minutes. Then the problem progressed to the left 1/3rd of the screen replaced by vertical lines rendering the set unwatchable.
Summary: Picked one of these up as a present for my brother and we have had nothing but good things to say about it for the past couple of months. Amazingly nice picture quality for the price. If you aren't terribly interested in any sort of connected options or 3D preparation this set compares favorably to many of the other higher priced plasmas on the market. The screen is wonderfully slim and design overall is very nicely understated.
