          Had this tv for over a year now. It is a very nice tv for the price. Only issue I have had was with one of the hdmi ports thus 4 stars for quality instead of 5.

              Excellent picture, attractivly styled, easy to use, lots of features. Super buy for the price! We love it. Plus it hangs on the wall-out of the way. Nothing like our old projection tv that was huge and took up half the livingroom.

                  Well it's gotta be the most attractive plasma out there and you definetly won't find better picture quality at it's price. A lot of features, but some of the stuff is a bit confusing if you're not a tech junkie.

                      Comments about LG 50" Black Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:

                      I purchased this particular TV because of PRICE, it was by far the best deal for the size. I was actually in store and compared it side by side with many other brands, in my eyes it blew them away. I prefer the LG brand for other products so figured I couldnt go wrong. For many months people commented on how great it was... size, picture quality and so on...after about 6 months I actually got the HDMI cables for my PS3 and watched a BlueRay disk. It was amazing... that then prompted me to head to the cable company to get the HD box... I expected it to be good, but thought since I only got the 720p that it wouldnt be too huge of a difference but hey if the channels were free I should have the HD box...

                            I purchased my TV right before Thanksgiving 2008 and I believe I made a great buy. I found the Tv has a great picture and works well with the kids PS2 and Wii system. I also purchased a 1000w LG surround system to go with it and could not be happier. Great Price and Value
