Summary: Although blessed with solid features, design, and performance, the LG PZ950 series can't match the excellent picture quality of other plasmas in its price range.
Pros: The LG PZ950 series evinced excellent color in bright and dark areas, along with the even screen uniformity of plasma. The Smart TV Internet portal is well-designed with a solid selection of streaming services, and LG includes a Wi-Fi dongle. The secondary motion-sensitive remote provides a cool, easy-to-use control option. We appreciated the one-sheet-of-glass styling.
Cons: This plasma reproduces light black levels and its screen handles bright rooms worse than other TVs. It showed mediocre 3D performance. Smart TV lacks Pandora, and its search is next to useless.
Excerpt: It took this plasma screen a while to reach us, but that didn't dampen our enthusiasm in dissecting this 3D Smart TV from LG the moment it got here. So was it any good against the likes of its PDP competitors? We've got all the details for you!
Pros: Elegant design, Fast response time, Excellent 3D depths and clarity
Cons: Subtle image retention, Sub-par black depths
