with this L.G t.v there is no motion blurr . i had a 240 hz lcd t.v and it had some blurr with it,but this t.v has none.just to let you know i am watching it through a antenna not a cable company . the picture is outstanding.i have a ps3 ,and a blu-ray player connected and the picture is also outstanding.the sound is amazing as you have many control options on how you hear and see the picture. the wizard was great to have to help set up the picture ,but i like mine set up without the wizard. you might have to tweak you controls as well to fit your liking .anyway this is the best t.v out there for this price.this is my first plasma and i do not think ill get another lcd t.v .L.G plasma has a customer for life.

False Advertisement - No Help From LG

I bought this TV online because the title of the Google search result for the link to the LG site said "LG 50PA6500: 50 inch Class 3D capable 1080P Plasma TV with ...". Note the "3D capable" part, which also displays in the browser tab when you visit the LG site. I bought the TV expecting 3D and was disappointed to find it didn't have it. I contacted LG and their response was essentially, "We'll fix our web page...thanks." No recognition that I paid for one thing and got cheated. No offer to resolve the situation. Just "too bad for you". We have one other LG TV and an LG washer and dryer. I've been an LG fan for years but no more. This company does not care about fixing mistakes that ripoff its customers.

Poor quality

By 

from Winnsboro, SC 29180, USA

Comments about LG 50" Black Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:

I am not pleased with my LG because after only a year and half. It just started turning off and after about ten minutes it comes back on. Sometimes I get up in the middle of the night and it has turned itself on. My kids are unable to play with their xbox because it keeps going off and on.

          Comments about LG 50" Black Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:

          This television is great. I was apprehensive because it is in a bright room, but there is no glare or reflection problem. It is the same size as my old projection unit but seems bigger because the picture is so much crisper. Being able to quickly shift between Cable and DVD is great, as is the ability to easily jump between picture settings for contrast, etc.

              LG has produced another sleek product. I already had an LG surround sound system/Blu Ray player. The two integrated perfectly, and I could not be happier with the performance of them both. Excellent picture that truly makes the black colors black.

                      Received this TV as a Christmas gift and am still in awe of the color saturation and picture depth of this very slim, sweet looking TV. I wanted to watch every commercial over the holidays just to enjoy the colors! Wonderful value for your investment ~ I didn't need to pay all that extra for a smart TV...I have a smart Blu ray player so tons more picture quality here for my money. The only negative I have encountered is that there are only 2 HDMI ports. I guess that is another reason this model is priced a bit lower ~ a bit disappointing nonetheless. LG is and always has been cutting edge so not sure why they would short their progressive thinking minions on something as inexpensive as state of the art connections. Still ~ if I had the where-withall I would put this TV in every room of my house! I'm afraid I'm now ruined for other TV's.Thanks LG!

                              I bought this tv 6 months ago. It's price was too cheaper from but it's performance was just perfect. Only one thing made me angry. I've never seen a tv lacks 3.5mm or rca output. My sound system doesn't have optical output. However for it's price, it's still great tv. ps. : Sorry for my English

The picture is beautiful and all the features are simple to operate and make your adjustments to suit your own taste in picture and sound. I had family and friends over for the SuperBowl, and everybody was wowed by the this TV.
