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 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: Purchased this tv from another company. But felt I should write a review. Have had the tv for three weeks and the picture is awesome. Easy to hook up and the sound is great. Replaced a Samsung 50 inch that only lasted 4 years. This LG way better with sound and picture quality.
Summary: I bought this TV Dec 31st 2011- So I've had it almost a year now. This is an awesome TV, the picture is fabulous and the sound is wonderful. The blacks are truly black. I've not had any problems and no complaints.
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.
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.
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.
