LG's streaming plasma costs less

Though still a bit short in some areas of picture quality, the LG PK750's style, features, and price keep it compelling.

The LG PK750 series represents LG's midrange plasma Sarah Tew/CNET

People have been tolling plasma's death knell for what seems like years, but the "other" flat-panel technology is still available from LG, Samsung, and Panasonic. The first 2010 model we've tested is LG's PK750 series, and it exhibits the same plasma characteristics--better off-angle viewing and uniformity than LCD; worse energy efficiency--as ever. Its depth of black, though better than last year's LG plasmas, still can't compete with its brethren from those other brands' plasmas, or with the better LCDs available. That said, we appreciate the PK750's style and feature set at this price level, especially compared with similarly equipped 2010 models like the Panasonic TC-P50G25 and the Samsung PN50C6500. If you're looking for a midrange plasma and don't demand videophile image quality, the PK750 deserves consideration.
