LG 50PZ550

 

Of the plasma screens released by LG this year, the 50PZ550 ($1099 MSRP) falls in the middle of the value range, just behind the xxPZ750 and the xxPZ950 series. The feature set is not too different between the series, you will still have access to...

Good motion processing ; A wide viewing angle

Awful color performance ; A low peak brightness, and a high black level for a plasma screen

LG did not release a good set of plasma televisions this year. We really expected to see a line of televisions that could compete with the best because of the sterling color performance of their LCD displays. However, none of these plasmas were going...

LG PZ550 Defective from Manufacturer

 

I was excited to get this TV along with moving into a new home. I currently have 2 Dynex LCD's serving duty around the house so I was excited to see what LG had to offer. Out of this box this TV looked great, with some adjustment, even better! But one...

Great TV but especially Great Price!

 

Here's a tip. Turn the lame intelligent sensor off! Especially if the tv is in a smaller room. LG's intelligence sensor dims the screen the darker it gets in your room through the use of a light sensor. LG brags about this like they invented but my...

Very competitive price. Great picture. The menus are much nicer than samsung's of the same year. Can't beat the refresh rate of a plasma and as long as your lighting isn't bright you'll have no complaints. Backlit remote. Youtube and netflix features...

What could possibly be a con for such a cheap 60 inch plasma tv? Not much. There are plenty of more expensive 60" screens but not a lot that are cheaper than this. The screen is great once you adjust the settings and if you connect it to a computer it...

Wow, stellar picture and 3D

 

What I read said Plasma was the way to go if you want 3D action movies and gaming; this TV did not disappoint. I also own a large LED LCD HD TV and the picture on this is as good if not better. A friend noted he believed it was a better better picture...

Clean crisp picture, coming out of the screen 3D, tones of imputes, great sound and easy to use

Heavy and on the thick side for a thin TV. Also, be careful of the wall mount you get if you install it on the wall as the one I got installed it so close to the wall some of the wires had to be forced at a 90 degree angle to properly install

Great Picture/Affordable Price Tag

 

Right TV for the right room makes all the difference. The TV has a glossy screen, but in a room that does not recieve a lot of natural light it's not an issue. I would recomend this TV to anyone in this price range!

Excellent picture quality with deep blacks and quick response times, makes this one of the more impressive flat screens I have ever owned. Side note, wasn't expecting it to be thin, but it is pretty slim

TV stand not the greatest, but by no means flimsy. The residual burn is not permament ( got me nervous at first) and using the eco button to turn off the backlight can ease your nerves if you are worried about it
