LG 42PT350

 

The LG 42PT350 ($599 MSRP) is LG's entry-level plasma, limited in features but adequate enough in many areas of performance. The drawback, though, is the ill-fitting 1024 × 768 native resolution, which created a number of problems for picture...

Good color performance

1024 × 768 native resolution makes for awkward resolution scaling ; Lots of problems with motion performance

The LG 42PT350 ($599 MSRP) is a better entry-level TV than others we have seen. This plasma TV has a reasonable price matched with a reasonable performance in many areas. The color scores were good and there are a number of useful connectivity options...

LG 42PT350 Review – 42-inch Plasma HDTV

 

This 42-inch plasma TV model was announced by LG, without some of the latest features including Smart TV, built in Wi-Fi and 3D HD support. It comes with various options to access your local library of music, movies, images, and video clips stored on...

The model also scores much lower due to lack of internet connectivity features. While most of the latest TV sets are offering efficient and wireless internet access facilities through built in Wi-FI, it even does not support the traditional and wired...

LG 50PT350 Review – 50-inch Plasma HDTV

 

The craze for Plasma TVs is going to increase with the innovative technologies being incorporated into the new sets this year. This 50-inch set not only promises to overcome the problems of burn-in of pixels and extra reflection of light from the...

Energy consumption has been lessened to a great degree in this set and it is now Energy Star qualified which means that you don’t have to bother about the high electricity costs anymore. But although the energy crisis has been solved, LG has not given...

LG 50PT350

 

The lower resolution and lack of internet connectivity may make some avoid this LG plasma TV, but others may find it adequate for their needs. Despite its shortcomings, the LG 50PT350 still offers a clear picture, bright colors, plenty of ports for...

This LG HDTV is energy efficient

The LG 50PT350 only has a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels

This plasma TV displays a high-resolution picture, but not a high-definition picture.

The specs are clear

 

Most new thin sets have very bad internal sound but most people with video this size have a 5.1 system hooked up anyway........or as I did when not wanting to fire up that power consuming 5.1 amp, I bought a good set of 2.1 computer speakers with a sub...

Don't know what the other reviewer was seeing but it says in big letters it's 720p 600Hz ; Thin profile for a plasma

65 lbs, speakers speakers speakers ouch

Misleading

 

Unbelievable that you have to go seek specs on another site to find out that it is NOT truly 1080P. It's native resolution is 1024x768.

Good price

NOT 1080P

Perfect for regular home use.

 

I bought this TV without a ton of expectation, and it blew me away. I have had it for 6 months, I love this TV, especially for the price. I would recommend this, and I would buy again if I needed another.

Attractive Design ; Good Resolution ; Great Picture Quality
