LG 42" Black 720p Plasma HDTV - 42PA4500

Features:

  • TruSlim Frame
    Peel away the old standard for ultra slim framing. Measuring at 0.59 inches wide the new TruSlim Frame trims away the distraction of a wide frame.
  • 600Hz Sub Field Driving
    Tired of streaky action or unclear plays during the game? See sports, fast action and video games like never before. The 600Hz refresh rate virtually eliminates motion blur.
  • High Definition Resolution
    Pictures are sharper. Colors are more vibrant. Entertainment is more real. Everything looks better on an HDTV
  • Find The Perfect Picture
    Get easy self-calibration with on-screen reference points for key picture quality elements such as black level, color, tint, sharpness and backlight levels. Take the guesswork out of picture adjustments with this simple-to-use feature. It’s not actually magic, but it will sure seem that way.
  • View It In The Right Light
    Let your TV do the adjustments for you. Intelligent Sensor automatically optimizes the picture to the lighting and color conditions in the room for a more enjoyable viewing experience.
  • ISFCCC Ready
    LG’s ISFccc Ready HDTVs contain the detailed standards necessary for professional calibration of brightness, contrast, tint, sharpness, color levels and much more to meet local lighting conditions for both day and nighttime viewing. Settings are added to preset modes for easy access from your LG remote.
  • ENERGY STAR® Qualified
    Earning the ENERGY STAR means a product meets strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy. For TVs, it means they save energy both in standby and active (when they're on) modes. ENERGY STAR qualified TVs use about 30% less energy than standard units.

          Excellent value for the price. Good features with an easy to use menu. Build is first class. This set actually has some metal instead of all plastic.

                  The TV was very easy to set-up and has good picture quality. The picture format was a bit difficult to determine, probably best to set it on automatic.

                                    Never thought I would own a plasma TV however this purchase has convinced me that I made the right decision. I am so impressed with the brilliant colors and depth on this 42" screen that I have found myself recommending it to all of my friends who are searching to buy a flat screen TV. The set up of this TV was very easy and the directions were very clear and I absolutely love that every time I turn it on, I get a positive affirmation that 'Life's Good'! Need to be reminded about that sometimes!

                                          Comments about LG 42" Black Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:

                                          This TV is beautiful and is the best value we could find for our money. The picture quality is amazing, even on non-HD channels. If you are looking for an economical, well-designed plasma TV with an excellent picture quality, look no further. You will not be disappointed! The first show or movie you watch in HD will blow you away. For a 42" plasma, this is definitely #1. Picture and color quality were excellent, right out of the box. Even the sound quality was a surprise, after reading many reviews on this and similar products. Clear, well-balanced sound quality with plenty of punch for household use.
