      Comments about LG 50" Black Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:

      This is the best tv I have ever owned. The picture is out of this world. It is easy to use and looks like a million bucks in my living room. Our friends all rave about it as does anyone who happens to see it. Our first plasma and I hope the plasma format is around for a long long time.

          I bought this tv to replace a plasma that ended up dying on me after many years of service. I am very happy with it. I only have it for 2 days so far but right out of the box it looks great. I can't wait to fine tune it and configure it.

                          I bought this set to replace a projection TV and am blown away by the picture quality, bright colors and the great sound. It is not my 1st plasma, but it is superior to my original one.

                                  I was watching a truely remarkable HD picture within 30 minutes of arrival. Choice of picture settings, as well as, an expert setting, allowing the user almost unlimited adjustment.
                                  Connected to a Blue-Ray, awesome.
                                  My only beef is that the remote cannot "learn" to operate other devices, like cable box or DVD players. If not for that, this is a 5 star review.
