OK, I love this television. It is completely silent, cool running, amazing picture (after adjusting the settings properly) and had all of the features I wanted for a price point that couldn't be passed up.

Pros:
* 3 HDMI ports
* Silent even with my ear right next to the set
* Rotatable stand (my wife hates being off center but her chair is far to the left so she can rotate it to face her)
* Decent speakers (get loud enough but nothing mind blowing but not bad either)
* NO BLUE LEDs, infact when the set is on NO LEDs are on at all. Just a small red one for standby which turns off when the set turns on
* Loads of advanced settings available without having to enter into locked service menus.
* Picture is bright in my opinion (not LED TV bright but more than enough for my needs)
* Price (paid 6 c-notes during Fry's easter deal)
* Super fast response time (no lag at all in any games)
* No real burn-in issues even with games being played (after the first 100hr burn-in time where static images were avoided).
* After calibration great rich blacks.

Neither here nor there:
* Touch sensitive buttons on front panel (cool as hell but can be a bit annoying trying to hit a button in the dark).
* USB video and pictures (don't really use this at all)

Cons:
* No bells and whistles (not a con for me but maybe for others).
* Like any shiny TV glare is an issue.
* Settings out of the box leave something to be desired at best.
* Not 3D (once again I didn't want this but for others this maybe a con).

I bought this TV about a week ago and was a little depressed when I hooked it up to my provider because I had yet to call an order my HD, the picture was good, but not great. I called the next morning, ordered the HD, flipped on ESPN and was absolutley dazzled. The picture is crisp, clear, vibrant, and just looks uttlerly amazing. I am not a big 3D fan, so the basic model was more than enough for me, and for the price, the value is amazing. Regarding glare, I have read prior reviews that this is a problem with LG tvs, I have mine in a basment with windows so there is quite a bit of light andi was worried, but much to my delight ,the is glare is very minimal. As far as the menu and adjustments they are both very easy to use, I just keep the itelligent sensor on most of the time and it provides a very accurate picture, sometimes a tad too dark, but usually its right on. Sound is also decent from what I can remeber for the first night, but I have soundbar hooked up so I havent experiences too much on that. BUY THIS TV, you will LOVE IT!

Size Name: 50-Inch
I've owned this plasma for a week now and bought it in the store for $800 plus tax. Im a videophile and am a picky person when it comes to my tv's. This is the 3rd set ive owned in 2 years. The first was an lg 1080p 55 inch, well that's went south quick because fast moving images would become blocky so I took it back. Then I bought a 32 1080p sony LCD and it the picture looked good somtimes but most of the time it had blotchy colors and terrible shadow details no matter what setting you used, then the screen started to band (dark lines on it). Then I went to samsung LED and the back light bleed in all corners ruined movies for me the tech came to fix it and made it worst, took it back the next day.

Ok so I went looking for a new plasma, which ive heard always made movies look better, and plasmas are favorites by most people who watch a lot of movies. Ive always been scared off by the burn in effect. So after a lot of research I got this one the price and picture was I was looking for. I will say this on the picky side of things for movie lover. The 16x9 black bars you see on most films with not be pitch black, they are VERY close but no matter what ya you do they will be a few shades off. They are even in color and it doesn't bother me compared to the LCD/LED ones that are black in the middle and grey on the ends. Also this tv has some sort of Fluid motion tech built into it, much like 120 hz Lcds have it makes the motion more fluid. No plasmas don't need this because they work differently, but LG must think people want movies to look more life like, but the fluid motion ruins movies and makes them look cheap and make the motions look too fast for their own good. My only complaint is I don't know how to turn this feature off.

Size Name: 60-Inch Verified Purchase
I just bought this TV from amazon.com yesterday and spent most of today with it. Here are my top of mind comments, hopefully they can be helpful to others considering this HDTV.

PROS:
+ A Good Value. The price/screen ratio - as well as the features - are simply unmatched (especially compared to LED/LCDS of a similar size).

+ Picture Quality. The picture quality is also very good. Vibrant colors, easy to adjust picture with advanced user controls. Only took me about 5 minutes of tinkering to find a setting that works well.

+ Thinner than most plasmas of late. This HDTV is pretty thin and many will be surprised it's a plasma (it looks more like LCD/LED thin, which is a good thing).

+ Highly rated Quality/Reliability. I checked out the latest consumer reports ratings and LG - along with Panasonic - receive the highest ratings in terms of quality and reliability in the plasma TV space.

CONS:

- Glare. No surprise here if you've read the other reviews on this site and elsewhere. But I do want to put this into context. It's not a deal breaker, it's more of an occasional distraction. Let me explain:

My TV is in my living room which has two big windows, one on each side of the TV. With the blinds mostly closed, glare is only occasionally a problem when the tv has an bright image, but in darker scenes, if you look closely, you CAN often see your reflection in the TV. (I have only a wall behind me, no lights).

Most of the time this is not a big deal but this can be kinda distracting if the movie you're watching is dark.
