Hi, I'm [unk], and this is the look at the LG 60-inch PH6700 Plasma TV.
If you are on the market for a new plasma, then there is not many manufactures left to choose from.
And, that would go in this order: Panasonic, Samsung and then, LG.
This PH6700 is the company's flagship because it's the most expensive one.
But, it's still only worth about $1200.
This television has plenty of bells and whistles
with the new magic motion remote, voice interaction, inspector gadget, smart TV and cable box integration.
While it also has 3D capability, you do have to buy the glasses separately for $50, which is disappointing for a flagship.
The TV is fairly conservatively styled for LG with a black bezel and stand, but, at least, it does swivel.
The television maybe priced similarly to the Panasonic ST60, but it misses out on the bright room filters.
So, it will look best
in the dark only.
Picture quality is mostly good and equivalent to last years' LG Plasma with [unk] twice the price.
Shadow detail is excellent and color is very good too.
But, we need to talk about black levels, all of these years' Panasonic plasmas completely blown away for black levels and even some visuo-LCDs at half the price.
If you value good set top box control and can handle watching in a dark room, the LG PH6700 offers a big 60-inch screen for not much
Otherwise, if picture quality is most important, you are better off with the Panasonic S60 or ST60.
