LG Infinia 60PZ950 1080P Active 3D THX Certified Plasma with TruBlack Filter and Smart TV
, June 8, 2011
This review is from: LG Infinia 60PZ950 60-Inch 1080p 600 Hz Active 3D THX Certified Plasma HDTV with TruBlack Filter and Smart TV (2011 Model) (Electronics)
I just received my 60PZ950 and set it up yesterday. I have to commend Amazon and Onecall for a very quick transaction. Well done. The standard delivery got to me within 4 days of me placing the order. My TV was delivered curbside however I offered the driver $20 to help me get it into my condo. No problem whatsoever.
Now I've only had this for a night but once I set it up, I can tell you that I'm blown away by the picture quality. This is my first plasma and 1080P and so maybe I'm overly excited but I had a Hitachi 1080i/720P Ultravision ( CRT ) and that was still a great picture for 11 years old. This picture quality is better than I have ever seen and that is from a lot of visual research over the past couple of years with various models. LG did a fantastic job on this PZ950 flagship model. I'm anxious to see what CNET says about it once they review it and compare it to the Panasonic and Samsung equivalents. The price for the LG is much better than both of those and I'd been hearing good things. Even last year their PX950 model got great reviews.
I use hi-speed hdmi cables and run them through my A/V receiver that can also support 3D. I haven't had a chance to test the 3D yet as my glasses were shipped separately and arrive tomorrow. I'm sure it will be very good and will report back once I give it a run. I did try Vudu ( which I already have an account for ). Vudu still gave me a credit for a free rental in 1080P and it was AWESOME! Also tried Netflix, MLB TV ( also a member for ). I had these apps through my PS3 already but it's nice to have them on the LG directly. Everything ran like butter. Set up was a breeze and the wireless dongle they provide was simple as well. I even updated my software in about 5 minutes. I have a really hi-speed wireless network so I can't tell you if others will experience the same fortune in updating software quickly. I got a ton of apps after the update. So many that I won't have time to use them all. YouTube was cool.
Currently, I'm just using the THX mode to break in the plasma on movie channels for the next 100 hours or so. However, I did watch the HEAT/MAV game last night in sports mode. The settings so far are right on and I don't know how much I will have to tinker with them later. The colors look fantastic.
Anybody and everybody that wants a great price and possibly the #1 plasma for 2011 owes it to themselves to check out this TV.
Again, excellent job LG. Thanks to OneCall for providing a great price and fast shipment through Amazon. I'll report back once I use the 3D. 2D is awesome.
