LG Infinia 50PX950

 

When we reviewed LG's former flagship plasma in July, the PK950 series , we called it the best the company had ever produced and a worthy contender to Panasonic and Samsung. Its new boss at the top of LG's totem pole, the PX950, is basically the same...

Produces relatively deep black levels; accurate color overall; correctly handles 1080p/24 sources; solid 3D performance; plenty of streaming and interactive features; extensive picture controls; sleek styling with single-plane design and 2-inch-deep...

Lighter black levels than some flagship plasma TVs; blue oversaturated slightly; ineffective 2D-to-3D conversion; fewer apps and services than many other interactive models have; exhibits some temporary image retention; inefficient power use; Magic...

With excellent performance showing either 2D or 3D material, the LG PX950 series stands among the best plasma TVs this year.

LG 60PX950 THX Certified 3D Plasma First Look

 

LG front-and-centered its new PX950, the "world's first THX Certified 3D plasma TV". It was given the red carpet treatment at the booth and to be honest it looked pretty good in terms of black levels and picture quality. LG is one of the only company's...

LG 50PX950 3D Network Plasma HDTVReview

 

LG's latest plasma display is the first to sport THX video certification for both 2D and 3D. And while it may not be perfect, it's easily the finest display we've yet seen from LG.

One thing I didn't like was the fact that software updates appear to be mandatory whenever a new system update is detected. Shortly after receiving my review unit I updated the system software to the latest version available (4.00.04). A few weeks...

LG 50PX950 3D plasma television

 

The LG 50PX950 is a 50in 3D plasma television that can be bought for little more than $2000, despite having similar features to more expensive televis...

Great black levels and vibrant colour, LG's usual excellent video-on-demand implementation

3D effect is mediocre and has occasional visual flaws, glossy front panel catches some reflections

LG's 50PX950 is one of the best plasma televisions we've had the chance to look at. It's big, relatively cheap, has excellent picture quality and some great included features like video on demand and 2D-to-3D conversion. It's easily the equal of...

LG 50PX950

 

The gold quality standard of televisions continues to rise and the LG 50PX950 shows the company can keep up, but 3D could still use tweaking.

LG's best TV in some time ; Smart, no-nonsense looks ; Accurate colours, deep blacks ; IPTV platform is useful

3D could still be better ; Some tweaking needed to get best picture

LG TVs have a history of consistent performance but there is usually something small that prevents them from getting full marks, and a reflective panel is one example of this. We were pleasantly surprised, then, to find the LG 50PX950 has no such...

"Terrible Television Even Worse Corporation"

 

I bought this LG 50PX950 for the Super Bowl this year, some 4 months ago. 6 weeks ago it became clear to me that the banner logo that marks the top of all of MSNBC shows was creating a kind of shadow image on my screen that remained, no matter what...

NOTHING LG

The television has panel issues with shadow images remaining on the screen, like the MSNBC banner that MSNBC runS during their shows. But the worst is that the company knows this television is defective and they won't admit it. DO NOT BUY THIS TELEVISION.
