LG's are not value brands... Vizio and Westinghouses and the crap that Walmart sells are value brands. LG's offer competitive pricing and performance that far surpasses their selling prices. Maybe they can sell for low because they manufacture mass amounts of panels and also supply panels for Sonys and Panasonics, among others.

I have a 50" Plasma at home for like a year and a half with flawless performance and many others can attest to that as well. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another "GoldStar".

Koreans have quickly become the new Japan of electronics and cars... the public opinion about Korean products have yet to catch up to their quick rise in reliability and performance.
I agree... the world of technology has room for more than just the quality and value... there are areas in between and LG hits that area in my book.

They aren't Westinghouse or Insignia and they aren't Samsung.

IPS panels with good features for prices that get pretty close to the value brand range seems like a good thing to me.

Not 240 Hz. Forget it. jk
I would think a 240hz plasma would get a lot of thumbs down Smilie

Quote from turnne View Post :
actually I would say Vizio and LG are on the same level...with some Vizio models scoring as well as( or better) than some LG's

I recall the Vizio full array LED scoring better than the LG from a couple of years ago...and to my knowledge it was with an LG panel

Westinghouse ..Dynex..Insignia..Sceptre..etc are all 3rd tier and/or house brands

Many manufacturers use other panels...that is not nearly all the story..as the picture processing is proprietary to the brand

As far as value surpassing its cost...what brand doesnt?

is a mercedes E class worth twice the price of a volkswagen passat?

Lower end products are always a better value...no surprises there at all....Cool

I have a full array LG 8500 from a couple of years ago..its a great set..is it as good as Sony's full array LED..the XBR..from the same time period...absolutely not
But the LG was 1/2 the price

I would not hesitate to buy sat asanother LG as some of these prices that are offered

However..they dont come close to the higher end Samsung's and Panasonics( I own all three)
Viziz seems to me like an up and coming LG in that they both offer good quality for good prices. Just LG has been at it longer.

I do recall Vizio having some real winners and I think that is putting pressure on LG to come back as they now have competition in the mid price good quality market.

So when this tv is $700 at sears no mir involved it isn't front page..

And when it is $600 at fry's it is not front page

But when a store many long time slickdealers do not trust has it for $800 out of pocket it is front page?

Obvious this was paid off by tiger direct. This tv is amazing but you should not pay a dime over $700 plus tax without mail in rebate

And comparing a vizio to an LG is ridiculous. Lg has been in the tv game waaay longer, before even plasma. I am sure some people have goldstar tubes or lg monitors that are over 15 years old.

the built in speakers on a LG sound half way decent and even on a LED the black levels are good enough..no comparison beween vizio and LG.

If you really need a 70 inch go for the budget sharp 70 or get a LG 65.

Couldn't resist. I was really shopping for a higher contrast ratio Smart TV preferably in LED, but the reviews and price got me. Nice amount of inputs too.

I picked this model up when it was $699 no rebate last month at Frys and have been very satisfied with it. I was upgrading from a 47" 2007 era Vizio LCD and the jump in picture quality is certainly noticeable. It's a plasma so I broke it in for roughly the first 100 hours and so far have not had any issues with image retention.

The TV has three issues folks should be aware of; I don't find any of them to be deal breakers for me personally. 1. There are only three HDMI ports (I run everything through my receiver, so no big deal). 2. There are no SmartTV features (between my Tivo/Xbox/HTPC I can get everything anyway). 3. The screen is a bit reflective (for my room setup it's not too bad, but I can see this being a real issue in certain setups).

After the break in period I'm using the settings mentioned on this page [avsforum.com] of the avsforum thread and the results look great. The 60PA6500 is just the warehouse store version of the 5500.

Yep, I agree. That timing is just fine with me as well. I am using my 32" $99 Seiki from Sears in the meantime.
