Did have to purchase the 3D glasses separately.

Don't buy this unless you get a good warrantee, I'd avoid LG after this experience.
Brent LaVelle
It is a great T.V. It works good, and the picture quality is excellent.

I've had this TV for more than a week and spent some time playing with it and have watched different TV shows, several movies, both 2D and 3D. I think I now have a pretty good idea about how this TV performs.

First of all, let me start with a brief summary of pros and cons:

**Pros:
- Inexpensive
- Pretty good looking
- 3D
- Many advanced controls for tweaking picture quality, ISF calibration ready, as LG put it. This is a huge plus for an entry level TV
- Excellent picture quality and color accuracy, especially after being properly calibrated
- Low power consumption for a plasma TV, has built-in smart power-saving feature. After being calibrated, it's less than 100 watts in 2D mode which is very low for a plasma TV and within the territory of LCD TVs.

**Cons:
- Only 720p. This actually doesn't bother me because I hardly notice any difference in picture quality compared to my 1080p TV unless I get very close, something like 2-3 feet or so.
- A small annoying issue I found when I tried to calibrate the TV. No big deal but still annoying. I will explain later.
- Looks like a mirror. This is actually a problem for all plasma TVs, the technology itself. If your room is not dark enough, or the TV is facing a window, the reflection can be pretty bad. High end plasma TVs have some sort of filter or something like that to reduce reflection but they cost a lot more. If your room is pretty bright, get ready to buy a dark curtain.

Now let me go into some more details of my calibration process and how this TV performs.
In fact, the TV has very good color and gray scale accuracy in "Cinema" picture mode.

This TV is amazing, I highly recommend it. Great quality construction/design, great quality sound, great quality picture. What more can you ask for? Thanks LG!

UPDATE:

Haha So, the above post was when I originally bought my TV (2 months ago). Well, I have had it hung on a wall since purchased and everything has been awesome. Well, today after having the TV on for about an hour it made a loud "POP" noise and shut off. It won't turn back on. Boooo LG. It's 2 months old and died. I keep a very clean living space so I know dust is not the issue, I keep the temperature around 74-76 degrees. So, I can only sum it up to faulty hardware? Maybe this particular TV is the only one with this issue, I don't know. But, "Life's Good"? Now, "Looked Good".

Amazon will not refund the purchase amount because I am outside the 30 day return window.

Thanks again LG!! :)

NEW EDIT (1/20/2012)

PROS:
Cheap 3D plasma TV
Great Calibration options for greyscale
Good Calibration options for primary/secondary colors
Decent picture (really good for the price point)
Good 3D
Thin and attractive looking tv

CONS:
-1024 X 768 resolution (note: this technically falls under 720p but normal 16:9 720p is 1280 X 720 which is 921,600 pixels which are 1:1 or square shaped, the 1024 X 768 is more commonly found in PCs, it's 786,432 pixels that are 4:3 shaped) this is usually for 4:3 televisions/monitors. So the 720p here is actually a lower resolution 720p than that found in most 720p HDTVs (ie, has fewer pixels).
-black levels not really great for a plasma set, comparable to other budget tvs
-Energy saving modes are terrible
-image retention may annoy some or scare some folks
- 3D glasses, LG glasses have a 10 minute aauto-shutoff so most people have to resynch a few times during a movie (not a big deal, you just push a button on the glasses)

Everything still works fine and I am not easy on my electronics. The tv is on for 8+ hours at a time, used for all day gaming sessions, I smoke in my apartment too. Just a few quick updates.

This plasma display does show quite a bit of image retention. This is NOT the same as burn-in. Burn in is permanent, image retention is just an afterglow of phosphors. The image retention goes away pretty fast, isn't very noticeable unless there is a black or white field. Anyone using this set should set the image retention protection to orbit/orbiter/orbital (not 100% sure what they call it), this is far better than the normal setting. Also note that if you change this to white wash or the color wash...

This TV far exceeded my expectations. As many others have noted, I too was concerned with the fact that this TV was not 1080p. My parents own a Panasonic Viera 1080p plamsa, and I would say, however, that this LG plasma is very close in quality. I thought that images would not be as clear and crisp as I wanted them to, but I soon found out that I was wrong. From a comfortable viewing distance of 7 or so feet, this TV looks amazing. The detail in characters of movies and games is also impressive. I popped in my Avatar Blu-ray and I was immediately won over. The contrast between the lights and darks is great, and the black levels are very good, which is expected from a plasma. The 600hz refresh rate and fast response time make everything smooth, especially with sports and video games.

The only problem that I have with this TV is the fact that it does not make a good PC monitor. Whenever it is connected to a TV, the native resolution makes the desktop look a little large and mis-shapen, but when playing games from the PC to the screen, things look great. It is also nice that the monitor will accept the 1080p input from my gaming consoles and PC, so those look amazing as well.

The 3D games look great, but I cannot yet comment on the quality of 3D movies. However, because of the great 3-D games, I would have to imagine that a 3D movie would be just as impressive. The 2D to 3D conversion seems a little gimmicky, but it does add depth to your favorite shows and movies. I still prefer the 2D to stay in 2D though.

Overall, I would recommend this plasma. For the price and the inclusion of 2 free pairs of glasses (when I bought it anyways) this deal cannot be beaten. Excellent sound from the on-board speakers and equally amazing picture make me very happy that I bought this television.
