The picture on the LG 60PA6500 displays all the benefits that plasma televisions have to offer their owners. The blacks are very deep and rich, and the colors are all very vibrant and lifelike. Since it features full 1080p HD, it offers the highest quality HD experience that is available today.
This TV has a 600Hz refresh rate that is stellar for watching fast-paced programming like sporting events and action movies. The 600Hz refresh rate eliminates the blurring that can sometimes occur with HDTVs that do not have enough processing power to handle fast images efficiently.
With the 60-inch size that the LG 60PA6500 has, watching TV on it is a whole different experience than watching on a smaller TV. The screen is so large that it is very easy for viewers to become completely immersed in the screen, because the screen is simply so large that the eyes never leave it.
The super slim design of this TV is fantastic. Any TV that sports a 60-inch screen, yet is less than an inch wide, is a fantastically designed piece of technology. This is much slimmer than the vast majority of plasma screen televisions on the market, especially plasmas with a screen this big.
Ease of Use
The default settings on this TV really only need one adjustment. The TV comes preset in the energy efficient mode, which dims the picture. Once the full energy usage level is selected, nothing more really needs to be done. It is not necessary to adjust the settings for different lighting situations, because the LG 60PA6500 has something called Intelligent Sensor. Intelligent Sensor takes readings on the lighting that is present in the room, and it automatically adjusts the TV to provide the perfect picture.
The LG 60PA6500 takes a minute to warm up, and during this time the picture can be a little grainy. After that initial period, there never is a problem with artifacts or grainy images.
This TV has to be wired to take advantage of the Internet features that it has, which is unacceptable in a HDTV being released in 2012.
The screen does have a little glare on it, but that is just something that all plasma television owners have to learn to deal with.
The sound is just average on the LG 60PA6500, so most people will want to hook it up to an external sound system.
The LG 60PA6500 is an inexpensive way for consumes to purchase a huge HDTV that has a very good picture and is simple to use. This is a great selection for people looking for an enormous plasma TV for a good price.
