The matte finish on the screen really cuts down on the screen glare from room lighting. (This was one of my concerns about plasma vs. LCD.) The picture quality is almost too good! Several HD shows we watch almost look too real, but I guess we'll get used to it.The sound quality on the built in speakers is good, and it is more than sufficient for normal TV shows. (We usually don't want to turn on the stereo surround system on a typical TV night.)Other things I liked: There are several physical inputs with a variety of interface standards (composite, HDMI, component, etc.) The programmable labels for the inputs are great. The built-in web "stuff" and on-lline access features are more than enough.My only issue with the TV is the magic remote interface. The wireless/motion sensing "mouse" is good. I've used similar devices on a PC, and the TV remote is as good as it gets.What I don't like is the complex menu that loads and must be navigated for any of the TV settings to be adjusted. For example, to switch from the cable box input to the DVD player input, I have to press the Home button, wait for the menus to load, choose the "input list" icon, then choose the input I want. The few seconds this takes is frustrating compared to just pressing one button on a normal remote control.This really isn't a knock against LG, as this seems to be how high-end devices are trending: simple mouse remote with on-screen menus. Unfortunately, this interface is a little too involved for my in-laws and my 3-year old to grasp.If I could just buy a second "normal" remote, I wouldn't have a complaint about this TV.

Nowhere in the specs for the product OR the 3-D glasses does it say Active. I did not want an active set. The glasses are very small and bring in light from all around, and you have to recharge them, which is a pain. Salesman said that when I got the RECEIPT AFTER I purchased the product it said active. Like we pay attention to that stuff after the fact?!?!? Salesman tried to say active is better than passive because of the quality - first, you can't tell quality difference in short distances, second, not one store I went to in NYC suggested an active set! And I went to them ALL. I bought a 47" LG and found it too small, but it was passive, so when I went up to the 50" and did not see the word ACTIVE anywhere, I assumed it to be the same. NOPE.

I Bought LG 50" 3D Smart T.V. PRODUCT #: 50PM9700. I t was Far the Best T.V. I have ever owned. Love the Fact that I can Run Movies Off the USB. Love the smart Remote. The only down Side was that My t.v. Didn't come with any 3D Glasses. All in All it is a great product.
from Wisconsin, USA
We really like our new Plasma TV. The picutre is crystal clear and the TV is very easy to operate. The ONLY thing I don't like is the glare we get from our windows.
Sharpest image I've seen on a plasma screen.
from Salt Lake City, UT, USA
Color and clarity of the 50PM9700 is THE best I have yet to see on any plasma set. This is not our first plasma set. After our two year old 50" plasma LG was stolen during a home burglary, we purchsed this model as a replacement. We are extremely pleased with the performance and the improvements in picture quality.
Best tv i have ever had
from Peoria, IL, USA
Great picture, first plasma set for me , did not know what to expect, but it exceded my ideals of what it would be like
from Tucson, AZ
I was thinking twice about a Plasma, but after I took it home I fell in love with it. The picture and sounds is great. Well the sound is so good I forget I have neighbors in my apt complex i turn it full blast while I'm cleaning and cooking. Can't believe how good it is.
