LG 60PK750 Plasma HDTV Review

60 in.

Not the greatest performer, but a decent price for a 60-inch set with basic online features.

Audio Quality

The LG 60PK750's speakers weren't bad, but they weren't great either. The TV has a surround sound mode, but we wouldn't say it created an enveloping soundspace as much as it made the audio sound a lot less flat and made the bass audible. Pretty average overall for a set of built-in speakers.

Menu Interface

The 60PK750 has a typical LG menu system. The main menu screen is a 5x2 grid of icons that make up the different main menu headers.

Selecting many of the icons will bring you to this screen. A column towards the left side of the window holds shortcuts to other menu items, which will open out to the right. This screen somewhat negates the usefulness of the first screen, but that first one does provide easy access to games and media playback, so it's not truly redundant.

Selecting a header from the right will pour its contents into the main window area.

Below is the quick menu, which lets you quickly access a handful of settings, such as changing the aspect ratio, switching picture modes, and setting up a snooze alarm.

The quick menu provides slightly faster access to some menu items.

Instruction Manual

The 60PK750's manual is pretty good. It has great pictures The only thing it does well is pictures, which are very detailed and employed frequently, if they are a bit small. The table of contents is very limited, there isn't an index (although there is a brief appendix), and the pages aren't tabbed. The font size is a bit on the small side, but shouldn't be a problem for most people.

You should be able to find the LG 60PK750's manual on its product page, here, but it doesn't look like LG has put it up yet.
