Terrific picture quality, no buzzing at all. I returned two Samsungs (B590 and B860)before buying this LG cuz they both buzzed loudly even with the volume on (though they also had nice picture quality... not quite as nice as this LG, but still good enough for any enthusiast). The glare on this TV is more pronounced than any other TV I've seen, but not to the point of being a problem--I am able to watch just fine during sunny days, even with a large side window open.

I've spent several months trying to find a decent TV. I stopped caring about picture quality even since all of the three big manufacturers of plasmas have great picture quality now. I was at the point where as long as the TV didn't have any glitches/bugs, then I would be content. I didn't want to deal with buzzing (Samsung), floating or rising blacks (Panasonic), or lack of a working 24p mode (all Samsungs and almost all Panasonics). A working 24p mode eliminates almost every single 2010 TV from contention, since only the Panny VT25 and the LG PK550 have working 24p modes (or so I've read). And considering the Panny costs much more than double the LG, it became a pretty easy choice for me.

First time with Plasma. Fantastic picture quality if your home theater is pitch black. Any lighting in the room and you can clearly see the reflection on the screen. We found the reflection very annoying and unfortunately were very diasappoointed with this set. ABT came to the rescue and are exchanging with an LED. [...]

what junk!

By 

from Melbourne VIC, Australia

Comments about LG 60" Black Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:

We have had our LG60PK550 for 2 and a half years and now it randomly switches off and won't come back on, sounds like it is trying too but it doesn't happen, so we switch it off at the wall for a while before having another go. It just keeps happening. What a piece of junk for the $$ we paid for it. It was recommended to us, so this is very disappointing.

      Comments about LG 60" Black Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:

      There is simply nothing negative that I can say about this TV other than possibly that it is heavy and requires two people to pick up if you want to move it. The picture and controls are wonderful and I will purchase LG for my next TV and likely other products. This is my second LG TV, the other is a small one, but they just get better all the time.

                  Just purchased 3 weeks ago, replaced a 50" projection. WOW! should have done this a long time ago. The tv is so simple to use, easy to hook up, and what a great picture. The sound is really good with no surround system. But that will be my next purchase. When we first purchased the tv, it had a humming noise. One of the screws was loose on the back of the tv, easy fix with a phillips head.

                          This 60inch plasma tv is simply amazing for picture quality and for value. I always check and values the reviews of the real end users over professional reviewer who could be more biased. I was right to choose this LG TV. Enjoying crisp and life like colors especially when watching Oasis HD channel/Discovery world HDchannel. Why pay more for unnecessisarilly overpriced TVs? Highly recommended definitely. Guarranty you'll be very much satisfied.

                              The 60pk550 is one of the best TVs I have ever seen, and certainly the best TV I have ever owned. It has all the features you could want without any of the unnecessary bells and whistles. Amazing picture quality with easy to customize colors, blacks, and whites. The built-in picture-wizard is a great place to start, but the 60pk550 includes expert calibration settings that will really make the picture quality blow your mind! It works well for everyday TV watching (SD or HD), but really shines with HD content and Blu Ray movies. If you don't need online movie streaming or other gimmicks, this is definitely the TV for you. The amazing picture cannot be beaten for this price.
