man, have prices plummeted
For real! I scooped this for $800 a year ago and that was a crazy deal back then. No complaints about this set, absolutely love the picture quality. If the price gets any lower I could see myself buying another.

Would this tv need to be in a light controlled room? Glare issues?

This is the actual reason why we get good prices on lg. people have no clue about the quality and technological advances they have made. They have never been a "value brand" instead they have used quality electronics at competitive prices to break in to the US market.
well...I use my eyes as the litmus test

and they say that the LG's are simply not as good as the best from Samsung( LED or Plasma) or Panasonic(plasma)

I consider the Panasonic LED's to be about the same level as the LG LED's

They are "below" competitive prices from Samsung /Sony/Panasonic

what technological advances have they made?

They were late to the party with motion interpolation( by two years)...then it took them another year to allow you to separate blur and dejudder functions

Then they make a 60hz panel and use a scanning back light, rather than true picture processing, to simulate motion interpolation....they still dont have a true 240hz panel( like Sony and Samsung) even in their highest models

I could go on...smart features..LED backlighting...etc..etc

The black level measurements on their plasmas TV's has never been high as Samsung or Panasonics

BUT...LG's are always less expensive

so what technological advances are you talking about...tell me what features LG was first to market with?

and btw I own an LG LE8500

When? Hate when people say a deal isn't slick because there was a deal that nobody knew about back in the day that their aunts little kids friend told them about. Troll. shake head

Frys has had this price about 60% of the time for the last 3 months...in fact the 5500/6500 were the same price

you call that rare?

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.
Vizio has had TV's rated better than anything LG made....look at some of the Vizio full array back lit LED models

Not sure that a 15 year old product really has any bearing on it

otherwise...if time is your litmus test

1. You would buy a Sony..there are some 20 plus year old Sony XBR's TVs out there that look better than any Sylvania, Goldstar product of the same time
2. Samsung would not even be a consideration for a TV

I got the $688 black friday deal from Walmart on a 60" Vizio and love it. Good TV for the money. Average tv in a home is approx 5 years before you buy a new one. I figure in 5 years the 4K models will be reasonably priced.

Black out curtains make a huge difference but this set does auto correct the picture based on lighting conditions. Glare is easy to control with a little thought.

Thanks. The room is surrounded by windows with blinds, and a lot of light comes in. Maybe I would be better off with LED?

Tell me about it. I spent $2800 on a Sharp 65" set in 2008. Now they are going b/w $1200 and $1400...the 70" Sharp can be had for $1400 on a good day...but this is a phenomenal price for the 60" plasma. Just wondering, how low can it go ? Is there a profit to be had by LG at this price ? Or are they just undercutting prices to take a slice away from competitors ?

I have the 50" and am trying to hold myself back from jumping. I just wish Dell would get closer to this price so I could use the employee discount. Right now discount on their price brings it to $750, then tax, but no rebate to hassle with... If Dell drops it $100 it's a no brainer
