Not Bad for the Price

Easy setup, some issues with burn in on first day but went away. Dark true colors and a nice picture. Sound is good too. Only 2 hdmi outs, that sucks.

LG 42" 720p 600Hz Plasma HDTV (42PN4500)

We love our new LG Plasma TV. We got this TV just before the Olympics and we were very pleased with it's over all picture and audio quality. It definitely enhanced our Olympic experience. I would recommend this TV to anyone looking to buy a new TV, whether it be your primary TV or a second one, it is worth it. The price was also excellent, less than a 32" from other retailers.

LG 42" 720 Plasma Tv

Overall for the price the TV is good. I have owned it for a month now. I originally found the colours weren't as bright as I would like but I changed the setting to "vivid" and it cleared up the problem. The size is great for us ( I sit about 9 feet away). I would like more HDMI/component video connections in the back, but it seems most tv's are providing fewer connection ports. I would recommend this tv, if the colours seem weak adjust the settings. We have been happy with it, I have no regrets purchasing it.

You cant bear Plasma

Get this plasma TV while it's still for sale. The picture is far superior to LED. If you read the legit television guides online they all say the same thing, Plasma is still the way to go if your main priority is picture quality, and not getting the worlds thinnest tv.

Just what I needed

Needed something to keep me entertained while I exercised on my equipment so I thought I'd try a mid size TV. I am a big fan of Plasma, so even though it is 720p (still a great picture) it has 600Hz and nice blacks and good for any angle viewing. A great TV, but the price was what sold it.

Good bang for you buck

My husband and I are not big TV people. Our old LG plasma broke down and we needed a quick replacement. The sound is better than our old TV. I think the screen is a little shinier than our old plasma and harder to see in bright light. Overall I am happy our purchase.

Excellent TV

I bought when it was last on sale. Easy setup, installation of base. Great picture and slimmer than my Samsung. It does not play movies, via a USB flash drive, but I knew that. Overall, excellent value for your money !
