LG 60PK950 Plasma TV

 

It might be true that plasmas are being shoved more and more into a niche market segment, due to the all pervading spread of the LCD, and now LED backed LCD HDTV, but there will always be a market that has informed and enthusiastic buyers. Not only...

At a MOP of Rs. 1,48,791, one has to realize that this TV is reasonably priced, as 60 inch plasmas by Panasonic or Pioneer are way more. The good thing here is that the quality offered is not far behind, and it is a sure improvement from previous...

LG's PK950 series plasma TV competes well against the picture quality of flagship models from other manufacturers.

Produces relatively deep black levels; accurate color overall; correctly handles 1080p/24 sources; plenty of streaming and interactive features; extensive picture controls; sleek styling with single-plane design and 2-inch-deep panel; Magic Wand remote...

Near-black areas tinged bluish; less-accurate yellow and cyan; fewer apps and services than many other interactive models have; exhibits some temporary image retention; inefficient power use; Magic Wand remote feels like a gimmick

LG Electronics Infinia 50PK950 50-Inch Plasma HDTV Review - PCWorld

 

The Sharp Aquos LC-52LE820UN offers good image quality, above-average audio, and energy efficiency, but its Internet and other features aren't the greatest, its design has serious shortcomings, and it's pricey for its screen-size class.

LG 60PK950 Plasma HDTV First Impressions Review - Intro

 

The 60PK950 is LG's top-of-the-line plasma TV for early 2010. While more attention seems to have been paid to their LED televisions, the PK950 series features a robust internet package and (most likely) 3D display. While the TV certainly looks...

LG is still not ready to announce whether or not the PK950 series will offer 3D display. This is, of course, one of the deciding factors in making a final evaluation of the TV. They're also sitting on the price, as all the manufacturers are, which...

Best 50-inch plasma TV

 

Experts say the LG 50PK950 competes on an equal -- or better -- footing with premium sets from Samsung and Panasonic in all but one regard: it lacks 3D capability. The 50PK950 is packed with features, including some not found on other TVs. One...

Great picture quality, lots of features, wii-like remote control, tHX certification

Some picture-quality technical issues, wi-Fi requires optional dongle, no 3D, reflective screen
