LG 60PK950

When it comes to huge TVs, people have always been somewhat indecisive in choosing between Plasma and LCD. When one thinks of better picture and deeper black levels, Plasma comes into mind. On the other hand, when one looks towards their pockets, LCD seems better option. Regardless of price factor, Plasma is indeed a better option as far as performance and picture quality is concerned. After all, you are getting a big screen for enhanced watching experience; then why should you compromise on price? (save a few months more, and you will be able to get your hands on a big plasma)

Features:

Let us begin with the design of this gorgeous Plasma TV. This is a decent as well as stylish looking television with transparent edges and a transparent stand. Overall looks are elegant. Remote control of LG 60PK950 is a great hit. This is a “magic wand” kind of remote which is slim and fits in one’s hand easily. Menu button will take you to an on-screen menu which is easy and simple to use. Now, you don’t need to move the cursor up and down with some arrow buttons placed on the remote control; instead moving the remote itself will do the job. That is why it is called Magic Wand.

Another important factor is the TruBlack Filter which gives better blacks in brighter atmosphere. Streaming and other media apps include Netflix, Vudu, Picasa, Yahoo and YouTube.
