LG 50" Black 1080p Plasma HDTV - 50PA5500

A Picture So Vibrant And Clear, You’ll Forget You’re Watching TV

Key Features

  • Truslim Frame
  • 600HZ Max Sub Field Driving
  • Full HD 1080P Resolution
  • Energy Star® Qualified

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.
  • Capture Every Moment
    Tired of streaky action or unclear plays during the game? See sports, fast action and video games in Full HD like never before. The 600Hz refresh rate virtually eliminates motion blur.
  • Double The Detail
    This stunning picture is the reason you wanted HDTV in the first place. With almost double the pixel resolution, Full HD 1080p gives it superior picture quality over standard HDTV. You’ll see details and colors like never before.
  • Save More Than Energy
    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.
  • 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.
  • Wise And Not Wasteful
    With our Smart Energy Saving Features, you can conserve money and energy.
  • 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.

      I'm glad I read earlier review about the settings to change. I was upset with the glare until I made the adjustments and then hardly notice it. The picture is very clear and sometimes feels almost like 3D. Far better than my old plasma which conked out one week after warranty expired. However, the sound is worse, It is pretty tinny, especially at higher volumes.

      The picture stopped working after just one month. It took two months over three visits (mostly waiting for parts on back order) from the repair company. Extremely disapointed. Thought I was getting a brand name, quality product, but all I got was headaches and 3 days of missed work.

          I previously owned a LCD TV and was hesitant to buy a plasma TV but couldn't have been more wrong. Great value, great picture, and great features. I recommend LG plasma products highly. Can't say enough good about it....

                      Got this TV on closeout for a great price. Got it home and set it up very easily. Picture is on par with most plasma TV's. Most colors are true but whites are either very dim or too bright and they wash out everything else. Overall great TV.

                                      Great Product. Definitely worth the money. Have it for about one month. Love it. Sound is crisp and clear, picture is precise and sharp. No motion blur at all. Great for my PS3 game console. Little advice for this product. If the AV mode can have more choices, it will be fantastic since right now it only has Off, Cinema and Game mode.
