First Look: The LG PA6500 is a good value plasma

1:21 /

The LG PA6500 is a decent plasma television if you'll have nothing less than 1080p for cheap, but the rival Samsung is the better deal.

-Hi. I'm Todd Pendlebury from CNET.com. And today I'm looking at the LG PA6500 Plasma Television. So, this television has any indication when it comes to making television. LG's biggest strength is in making LCD and plasma TV is a way of expanding its line-up. The PA6500 is LG's first TV in the line to include a full 1080p resolution but it doesn't have any smart TV or 3D functionality. Design wise, is fairly plain with a black bezel and a TruSlim design. The remote control is better than most budget model [unk]. One of the most noticeable things about this TV is the amount of image retention it has or a negative of the last image can stick on the screen for a few seconds. It's not a lasting problem but is something its competitors don't have. Image quality is okay but nothing special with fairly light blacks and extraordinary colors. At least shadow detail is good with none of the crushing that some other TVs have which may look exciting but makes the picture worst. The PA6500 isn't a bad TV but for the price, I'd be looking at either a Samsung E450 or a Panasonic U50 instead. So this has been Todd Pendlebury from CNET with a review of the LG PA6500.
