5 out of 5 stars   VERY PLEASED WITH MY PURCHASE
By ave8tor (Kelowna British Columbia, CANADA) August 08, 2010
Review submitted for LG 50PK550 50-Inch 1080p 600Hz Refresh Rate Plasma HDTV (LG50PK550)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Fast Setup, Great Picture Quality, Good Resolution, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality, Attractive Design
Cons:
Other Comments: [...]One thing to remember with Plasma T. V.'s is that they use more electricity and run hotter than other T. V.'s, and most of important, they cannot be laid flat for a long period of time. My neighbour lost his by doing this. It laid flat for a couple of weeks and destroyed the unit.. Very happy with the quality of picture and sound.Overall, a great experienc, and the price was right.

4 out of 5 stars   Not great, but not bad, either.
By TomHammond (Doylestown OH) July 20, 2010
Review submitted for LG 50PK550 50-Inch 1080p 600Hz Refresh Rate Plasma HDTV (LG50PK550)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Attractive Design, Good Resolution
Cons: Poor Sound Quality, Glare
Other Comments: Overall, it's a good unit. The exterior design and slimness are attractive. Colors are vibrant and the 600Hz refresh is great for fast action (like computer games). However, there are a few things that I am not happy about. First off, the "zoom" feature actually stretches the video up & down, so if I am watching a letterbox DVD that has the black bars at the top & bottom, the picture will be distorted when I zoom it to fill the screen (people's faces look too fat/skinny, etc.). Also, the black level is not as deep as I thought. This is my first plasma, so maybe I had too high of expectations. Don't get me wrong, the blacks are better than your typical LCD, but just not as black as I had hoped. The above comment goes hand-and-hand with the whites not being as bright as I would like. I have my brightness set at 59% and could raise it higher, but then I the blacks aren't as dark. Perhaps the biggest glaring issue is the screen glare (pun intended). Since it has a glass front, it picks up glare easily. If you have a TV room with no windows, it shouldn't be a problem. My TV room has two large windows so glare is easily shown on the TV. I wait until dusk/dark to use the TV, anyway, so it's not that big of a deal for me. Despite the cons, I am still happy with the purchase. The picture quality is good overall and you will definitely notice what difference a plasma can make over an LCD TV.

Pros: Attractive Design, Fast Setup

Other Comments: [...] Everything works and looks great! I only had to do a little minor tweaking with the factory settings and the picture quality is AWESOME!I also purchased a bluray player and movies look GREAT! Built in sound on the TV was very adequate for my space.People say glare on a plasma TV is an issue. There is some glare when tv is off but un noticeable when tv is on in a darker room.

5 out of 5 stars   Wow what a great TV
By Dave - King of Connecticut (Connecticut - of course) June 07, 2010
Review submitted for LG 50PK550 50-Inch 1080p 600Hz Refresh Rate Plasma HDTV (LG50PK550)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great Picture Quality, Good Remote Control, Good Resolution, Attractive Design
Cons: Glare
Other Comments: This plasma TV is for home use and is fantastic. After careful research I went with the HTZ power and ignored the "glare" issues. Glad I did - no motion drag when watching pro tennis or golf which is the litmus test for motion the drag issue. Color is stunning with blue-ray. Bring on football season!

4 out of 5 stars   Nice TV, Good Price
By CookieMonster (California) May 07, 2010
Review submitted for LG 50PK550 50-Inch 1080p 600Hz Refresh Rate Plasma HDTV (LG50PK550)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Attractive Design, Fast Setup, Great Picture Quality, Good Resolution, Good Remote Control
Cons: Glare
Other Comments: I was looking between the Panasonic, Samsung and LG plasma's and ended up with the 50pk550. They were getting good reviews and I got a great deal on the unit. The TV looks great when watching blu-ray's. I, Robot is a good movie to reference. The screen is reflective so it does suffer some minor glare in the day. Aside from that I love the TV and would recommend. I also upgraded the audio to a 4.1 system to add some bass.
