I am not going to lie, I was a little more than upset when my husband first brought it home. I did give him the go ahead when he called asking for it, but I was not happy about it. Before this LG 50" HDTV Ready Plasma TV, I only liked LCD flat screens. I loathed the idea of plasma because I have heard that the image of the television can be printed on (or burned) into the screen and that the plasma screens show light reflections, effecting the picture while viewing. Now that I have had this television for a couple of years now, I love it. The 50" screen looks bigger than 50" and is perfect for our living room size. The sound quality on this television is amazing. We have crystal clear sound and have never needed a sound bar. The other thing I like about this TV is that you can connect different types of media via USB on this TV for viewing. In the past two years, I have had television images imprinted on the screen briefly, but the imprint always goes away after a few moments. Also, we have never had too much problem with light reflecting onto the screen either. Overall, it is a great TV that is built to last. I would definitely recommend this one if you are in the market for a plasma television.
