LG 50PA6500


It's getting toward the spiky end of 2012, and save the surprise appearance of some OLEDs , we've seen most of the TVs that we expect to score highest in picture quality. This leaves us with televisions like the PA6500: not a dreadful plasma by any...

The LG PA6500 is an inexpensive plasma with natural-looking colors and solid bright-room quality. Image processing is a highlight, with correct 24p response mating well with the full 1080p resolution. This LG has a living-room-friendly appearance and...

The LG evinced some of the lightest, least realistic black levels in its class. Colors lack some of the saturation found in the TV's peers, and it showed more temporary image retention. The LG suffers from solarization, which manifests as distinct...

The LG PA6500 is a decent plasma television if you'll have nothing less than 1080p for cheap, but it's not the best value at this level.

"GREAT TV for the Price!"


I won't get into too many technophile level details, but what I will try to do is break it down based on what most normal purchasers would care about shopping in this price range. First, before going into the review, I will say this, when you first buy...

+ Picture is very nice

- Any glare in the room will be seen on the screen

"Very nice, after much tweaking of picture settings."


BEAUTIFUL picture, now that I have the settings I like for the picture. Your mileage may vary, but I like: energy saving: off, contrast: 67, brightness: 55, sharpness: 30, color: 62, tint: green 7, color temperature: cool 5.

The factory defaults for contrast, etc. were really bizarre, at least for my room. Who uses a contrast setting of 100% So, I spent way too much time finding good settings. But it was worth the effort.

Worth the 'discount' price


It arrived and had all components.Worth the $15

If I had paid the 'full price', I would have returned it. Kinda cheap, for sure

Giant Sized HDTV For A Conservative Price


Introduction Allow me to start the review by providing some background on my HDTV experiences. I first dove into the HD market in 2009 with a Panasonic 50" S model after conducting a large amount of research to decide which direction I wanted to go....

60" Size, 0.59" Border, Settings, Price Point, Power Consumption (For A Plasma), and Picture Quality

Inability To Custom Name Channels & Inputs, Glare (Depending On Room Lighting)

The 60PA6500 offers an excellent price to performance ratio combined with a great picture, good sound, superb viewing angles, and a whole host of customization options.
