LG 60PK750 Plasma HDTV Review

60 in.

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

Internet Features

The LG 60PK750 has a few big names in its online arsenal, such as Netflix, Vudu, and YouTube. What it doesn't have, however, is the breadth of content that other big-name manufacturers are offering. Sony and Samsung both have dozens of content providers on board, offering movies, games, shows, and clips. If you just want Netflix on your TV, the LG will be more than happy to oblige. If you're looking for the most comprehensive HDTV internet experience, try a Sony or a Samsung.

| Service | Our Description |

| Yahoo! TV Widgets | Yahoo! currently widget line-up: weather, a quiz game, sudoku, a Texas Hold'em game, sports (both from Yahoo! and USA Today), videos, finance, news, Flickr, and Twitter. |

| Netflix | This is the biggest name in streaming video nowadays. With an account, you can watch an incredible amount of streaming content. |

| Vudu | Pay-per-view service that specializes in HD videos. They seem to have a decent collection of movies, but paying $25 for a virtual Blu-ray seems pretty steep. |

| YouTube | It's YouTube, only a bit more awkward since you have to navigate with a TV remote. |

| Picasa | It's an online photo album feature, like Flickr, but without the strength of brand. |

Local Media Playback

The LG 60PK750 supports photo playback from a connected USB device. The interface involves a file browser view with the option for fullscreen view. There is no slideshow option, so you'll need to move between photos with the remote. You can have music from the USB drive play in the background.

The LG 60PK750 can also play back MP3 music files. The interface is similar to the one described above, with a file browser view and separate screen for playback. It's a very bare-bones implementation of the feature, but it gets the job done.
