Of the many hundreds if not thousands of HDTV units, both big brand name and 'generic', this LG 42PT350 was 1 of only 8 models tested by Consumer's Reports out of all sizes, all prices and all formats which the magazine chose not just to praise but to actually recommend for purchase. I ordered this unit largely on the strength of that review and this set did not disappoint. The fit and finish are outstanding as are the "thin frame" edging, which really are so thin they virtually disappear. Don't worry about the 720 aspect of this set as it presents beautifully. I went against the majority and purchased a plasma set to assure that the near 180 degree seating around the set would be visible to all and I am so glad I did.
A 'beginner's set' in price only as the features it provides for self-tuning the image staging compare favorably to professional screen staging if you are methodical. Go buy it!
UPDATE 11/9/12: Recently a friend gave me a birthday gift - a 42 inch plasma by Samsung. So, yes, the same specs as this. Not NEARLY as good picture quality. Watched them side by side and the LG wins by a landslide...not even close. This tv is undoubtedly that "special one" you see at the store. And the tv is still working perfectly!
Want an awesome, pretty big television for an amazing price? Don't look anything further - it's here.
I was a little worried at first about getting a television online. I couldn't see what it looked like, I couldn't find the same model in stores, and I worried it wouldn't fit right in my living room. Well, based on the good reviews I read on here, I decided to give it a shot.
This television, quite simply, is a STEAL for the price. Initially, I was really wanting an LCD because of the energy it saves, but a plasma is more bang for your buck. If you like to watch sports or play games (things with a lot of motion), a plasma can give you that for a much cheaper price. You'll have to pay quite a bit more for an LCD tv with comparable elimination of motion blur.
1. Easy to install - I'm a little girl who isn't great at handiwork, and I was able to put it together in about ten minutes with a screwdriver.
2. Slim, sleek fame - It truly is a SLIM frame. It is sleek, elegant, and looks like a really classy television set.
3. Elimination of motion blur - Forget 1200Hz for refresh rate. The 600Hz is plenty on this tv...I am a hardcore gamer and football fanatic, and I don't see any motion blur at all. That was one of my main concerns when looking for a television, so maybe this will help you out to know.
Shipping was very fast, ordered on a Sunday received on following Friday with standard shipping. The picture quality is fantastic although whites could be a little better. The real drawback is the stand ,the stand is is horrific its very wobbly and doesn't support the unit hardly at all, I wall mounted this TV the following day but wanted to test it for a night before going through the trouble, I was afraid it was going to fall over. Menus are easily navigated Factory setting have too much Green and Red Sound is decent Once set up picture is outstanding I bought this for $645 on Amazon with free super saving shipping
The delivery was A-1. The unit arrived in 1 week, and the delivery person brought it in to the living room and set it up, making sure it worked right out of the box. The picture quality is good, though not as good as the 50 inch Toshiba plasma HDTV with a similar resolution I had purchased over 2,5 years ago. However, that one had cost twice the money as well. So all things considered, this is a good unit, I like the slim frame too. I don't know how long it will last of course, but for now I am pleased. I think it's worth the price and a techie buyer might improve on the quality by fiddling around controls. I am too much of a chicken to try, so the unit is functioning on the default factory settings. I had done some tweaking on my other TV, the Toshiba, and almost ruined the picture quality and took me a while to bring it up to par again, so am not experimenting with this one. With such good delivery and amazon's courteous return policy you can't go wrong, I'd say go for it. Good, basic, LARGE tv. Recommended.
After thoroughly reviewing the specifications for this new LG 42PT350, I cannot find any difference between it and the equally fantastic model LG 42PJ350 I bought last year. I am so pleased with this TV after owning it for a little less than a year I feel compelled to tell potential shoppers to BUY IT, JUST BUY THIS TV, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT !!! Here is my review from February 2011: (Sorry for being so long-winded ...)
Recently purchased this LG 42PJ350 42" 720p Plasma TV online for under five hundred bucks delivered. (Amazon says this one year old model has been available "since 2003" ? An obvious misprint.)
We use it in our small (12' x 12') living room to mostly watch High Definition cable TV broadcasts, DVR recordings, and an occasional DVD movie. We watch a considerable amount of sports, and are not Blu-Ray collectors nor video gamers.
Plasma HDTV technology seems to be less popular with many consumers compared to LCD/LED, due in part to potential video burn-in, screen reflectivity, and higher energy consumption issues. We're mostly concerned with motion blur, good viewing at an angle, and excellent HD rendition of cable TV. Plasma's strong points are lack of motion blur, higher contrast, and deeper black levels. And unlike LCD, the picture looks great from anywhere in the room; not just directly in front of the screen. Since nearly all HDTV is still broadcast at 720p, the 720 vs 1080 debate was a non issue for us, as the difference in picture quality (even with a 1080p source) is nearly indiscernible at typical viewing distances, and didn't warrant the extra $200 for a similar 1080p unit. (We are watching this set from approximately eight feet away.Read more ›
