                  I looked for the TV I wanted for over 2 months. I was on a strict budget so I was looking for a lot of TV for a little bit of money and I found it with LG! Everything about this TV is 5 stars.

                          I got this tv for a great price at my local 6th Ave. Electronics store - the picture quality is amazing and I am so happy with my purchase! Although it is 720p, when I watch blu-ray dvds, I can't even tell the difference from 1080p. The picture is so crisp and the colors are vibrant that it's hard to believe that there could even be anything better than this! It was very simple to hook up all of my other electronics & games to it, and everything works perfectly. There is no lag in motion, the color is bright, and the detail is amazing. When I compared this to another (more expensive, other brand) tv I was considering - I was floored on how much better the picture looked on this tv, yet it was over $600 LESS than the other!!! The black is true black, and you can see so much detail that wasn't seen on the other set. I love this tv so much and I'm thrilled with my purchase! You won't be disappointed!

                              I am very impressed with my LG 50PQ30 LG TV--I turned on one of or old sets-cable TV and was over whelmed by the diffrence My LG picture was compared to the other TVs in the house. The main feature was the color-I just could not get the older TV's color to look correct-Then I realized that the real color I was comparing it to was my LG TV. So Thaks to LG for alllowing me to see the light and all the shades of color I had been missing for years.

                                  I waited for over a year for the price to drop on this baby and it finally did 2 weeks before the Super Bowl. I got it for an incredibly low price which I've not seen again! It is worth every penny and even some more! The more I play it the better the picture is getting.

                                      We are very pleased with this TV, it has a great picture and looks great on our HD channels but also our regular channels look good too. We can sit anywhere in our living room and it doesn't have a glare. We are very happy with our purchase and quality of the tv is nothing less than we would expect out of LG.

                                          Purchased 9/15/09. Simple to install and set up. This TV delivers excellent value for the price. If you are really into video, then you can opt for a TV at twice the price. The HD picture is very good to excellent and the contrast is very good, even in a well lit room. Speed is no problem for viewing football games (who dat say dey gonna beat them Saints). Product support is excellent. So far I am very pleased with my purchase.
