Conclusion: Even though the LG 60PN5700 sits lower in the lineup of LG plasma TVs for the year, it has more built-in functionality. The only real difference between the two series is the inclusion of LG Smart TV features and an extra HDMI port on the 5700 series. Everything else is practically the same. What does it cost for the extra features? The PN5700 sells for $100 more than the PN6500.
Pros: Color reproduction is top notch for a value oriented plasma TV, Blacks are deep and typical of a plasma display, 600Hz sub field drive for fast motion, Sound quality beats out a lot of the competition, Swivel Stand, 3 HDMI ports (vs. 2 on the 6500)
Cons: No Magic Remote included (optional purchase), The picture is somewhat dim, so bright room performance is very weak, Streaming video content has a lot of hiccups and slow downs
