LG 60PK750 Plasma HDTV Review

60 in.

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

Power Consumption

The LG 60PK750 isn't the least expensive to keep running, but it certainly isn't all that expensive for a 60-inch plasma. If you're watching TV with the Energy Saver feature off or set to Minimum, you'll spend about $65 per year. Again, not insignificant, but it isn't likely to bankrupt you either. If you turn the Energy Saver to Maximum, you'll spend about $42 per year, but you'll definitely notice the change to picture quality: contrast seems to have gone way down, and the picture seems very, very dim.

Below we've made a handy graph comparing the 60PK750 to a few competing TVs. Keep in mind that the 60PK750 is larger than all these competing sets, and it takes extra energy to light that extra screen area.
