The Good Excellent 2D and 3D picture quality; good media-streaming support; impressive online features; attractive design.
The Bad Weak sound; Wi-Fi isn't integrated into the set.
The Bottom Line The 50-inch LG 50PZ950T plasma TV looks great and produces excellent 2D and 3D images. Its Internet features are pretty smashing too. If only its audio quality were better.
LG PZ950 (50PZ950T)
The 50PZ950T is the flagship TV in LG's current plasma range. Not only does it offer 3D support and a new filter to improve black levels, but it also features LG's Smart TV platform, which provides access to a range of Internet services, including BBC iPlayer. This 50-inch, 1080p set doesn't come cheap, though. It will set you back around £1,100.
The 50LZ950T is easy on the eye. The front of the TV seems to be made from a single sheet of glass that runs from edge to edge. At 49mm deep, it's relatively slim for such a large plasma model, and we reckon it'll look the business in any lounge.
The TV offers plenty of connectivity options. Alongside four HDMI ports, there are a set of component inputs, a single full-sized Scart socket, along with another half-sized one, and a VGA port for hooking up computer equipment.
