The good: Relatively accurate color temperature after calibration; solid standard-definition processing; numerous picture controls; sleek, attractive styling with hidden speakers; plenty of connectivity with three HDMI and one PC input.
The bad: Reproduces a lighter shade of black; less accurate primary colors and color decoding; softer images with PC sources.
The bottom line: While blessed with a stylish, understated look and plenty of features, the LG 50PG30's picture quality falls a bit short of other 1080p plasma TVs.
