Conclusions About the LG PZ550 3D Plasma HDTV

Overall, I really enjoyed my time with the LG 50PZ550. The set is very slim, with a small bezel and an attractive design. The default ISF Expert mode looks good, but after a proper calibration, the LG not only tested well, it looked amazing. Broadcast HD programming and Blu-ray material just game to life with beautiful, accurate colors, and deep blacks. Although its 3D performance was nothing to write home about, I would still choose the natural motion and full resolution images with the active shutter glasses over LG’s passive approach. As an entry level 3D display, premium performance should not be expected, but for the price, this LG does a wonderful job with 2D content, and a decent job with 3D. As I have recently seen this TV for sale online for what I would call “crazy low prices,” if you are in the market for a cheap 50” TV with some 3D abilities, the LG cannot be beat.
