Summary: This TV is useless in the 3d mode with sky. it lacks brightness i have to have all the setting turned up to 100% and then its no where near bright enough then when you put on your 3d specs you cant watch anything the picture is too dark. i have looked at other online reviews on all same the same my advice is to stay well clear of this tv. LG are fully aware of this fault and try to blame sky saying they turn down the brightness!!! this is UNTRUE.
Summary: It's taken me a year to write a review of this product because it was so awesome that I just soaked it up. LOL I purchased thie Plasma TV in July of 2011. I watched an entire season of football (American) both College and NFL with this beast. The colors on this TV are almost beyond reality. Out of the box you MUST calibrate the TV as you won't know what the heck is going on. The controls are simple and accessible.
Summary: According to the LG website (among others) this TV has a 50" screen. For those reviewers who declared it to be 60", I can only conclude that they were describing a completely differnet TV, or they don't know what they bought. In either event, I cannot consider their reviews reliable.
Summary: This TV is great. I have been very pleased with the picture quality, both 2D and 3D. It looks great, with a very flat screen for Plasma (almost like the earlier LED ones) yet a very intense and colorful picture. Doesn't have this bright picture like LED TVs, and shows real tones of black. Very warm picture! It really is great value for money, especially considering how decent it looks.
Summary: I am happy with this model. I have not found very many 3D movies that are in your face to be able to rate this part. However, the depth is fine. I was told be most not to buy a plasma, but I do not regret it. I feel the value for the price is awesome. I bought this TV to replace a Sony 64" analog. I thought I would miss my big 4.3 BOX. I am not missing it that much at all. I really like the high-def, but this was to be expected.
Summary: I was highly disappointed with this product. I purchased it due to the great review given by Consumer Reports; however, I did not judge this product to be of high quality. First of all, the 3D was defective. I tested the TV using 2 different 3D-DVD players and glasses, so I am confident that the problem wasn't the result of defective equipment. Additionally, while Blu-Ray DVDs looked amazing, everything else was a massive disappointment.
Summary: I got this awhile back and recently sold it due to the fact I would like the larger one (60pz550). I personally never used the apps on the tv as I just use my HTPC/Xbox360. It has an amazing picture and very easy to calibrate (used avsforums recommendation). The tv does have a glare due to it having the glass front but it is very thin and very light. Shipping was fast and came in great packaging.
An Amazing TV great in every way but not good for bright rooms (lot's of glare)

Summary: I absolutely love this TV. The picture is amazing and the price couldn't be beat on Amazon. In fact I originally purchased LG's 47" LED TV and didn't like it very much. If you google problems with their TruMotion feature and complaints about higher refresh rates (240hz) you'll see that many people find that watching movies/TV shows on those TVs ruins the experience - what should look like professional cinematography ends up looking like something an amateur shot with a...
