Summary: I purchased this TV towards the end of 2011 for $800, which at the time was a steal. Unfortunately, this TV isn't without its drawbacks. While it touts a 3,000,000:1 contrast ratio, it could still go further in real-world use. Even with the contrast turned all the way up, you're often stuck between turning up the brightness to the point where colors start to wash out, or turning it so low that you start losing detail.
Summary: I use to dislike this tv. The picture was blurry but after hooking it up to comcasts HDreceiver with HDMI the picture looks life like! It only looks good when you have it connected to full HD, that's something to keep in mind. I have a problem with the picture sometimes flickering color. What I mean by that is if its zoomed out on a picture and its a blue sky, sometimes the blue sky will go from blue to light blue. Like the brightness is adjusting itself.
Summary: Product arrived in perfect condition. Took less than 20 minutes to have everything set up and operational. Combined with Verizon FiOS, the picture quality is amazing, and the sound is surprisingly good as well -- with my last TV, I had external speakers hooked up that are now being put to use elsewhere in the house. I'm especially enjoying the Olympics in HD, and looking forward to the football season. Everything I expected, at an amazingly affordable price.
High Rating, but there are issues (2012 Dec. update)

Summary: Yes, I'm giving this a five star rating for exceeding all my expectations for a $870 out the door plasma. Like many people, I caught the holiday fire sale using all the discount gift cards, but that the post 2011 Christmas season. I have been pleasantly surprised by the television. I am using a flush mounting kit Peerless SUF661 Ultra Slim Flat Wall Mount for 37"-65" TVs (Black) . I've now owned the screen for over three months.

Summary: It was good it has 2 usbs on the back i know alot of people do not know if it has the usbs but it does. It is a beautiful tv and the frame rate is very good. Shipping takes about a week so if you order and are sitting around it takes a while. Its only 98 pounds really light for such a big plasma.
Summary: This has a great picture. As always TigerDirect and Amazon deliver! Packaging was good. It included both hard copies and soft copies of the manual. I have cable, Roku, DVD players and PC all connected as well as some components that run through an audio/video mixer. All work fine. Set up was easy (used a great wall mount from CheetahMounts that extends out to allow for easy connections).
) and generally dealing with horrible phone support I finally convinced LG to extend my ...

Summary: Do not buy. After my experience with this TV and LG's awful customer service I will *NEVER* buy another product from LG again. This TV worked for less than 6 months for me and then the screen stopped working (went black) and would not turn on again. I engaged LG's repair service and they set me up with a local repair shop. The local repair shop "repaired" my TV and returned it in a month or two.
Summary: I have had this TV since September '11 and I must say it is a really nice product. The one thing that kind of concerned me was the lack of information online about it. It was hard to find any reviews on it and even LG's website doesn't list it so I wondered was this an older model they weren't too interested in promoting or what? Even the owners manual is on a cd that comes with the TV which can viewed as a PDF file when you put the cd in a computer.
Summary: I bought this TV in December 2011, i have now owned it for about four months now. This is the best TV i have ever owned, i have Comcast cable hooked up to it, a Play Station 2 & 3, a 1000 watt home theater system, and a blue ray dvd player all hooked up threw HDMI cables or RCA cables. The TV has awesome picture quality, the colors are crisp, bright and clear.
