LG 60PK750 Plasma HDTV Review

60 in.

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

Ergonomics & Durability

The LG 60PK750 has a decent remote. It sits well in the hand, although that's mainly due to the overall shape of the body and not the silly finger groove on the remote's underside. The groove would have been a lot more useful if we had giant manhands: our petite little ballerina hands couldn't comfortably bridge the gap between a neutral hand position (thumb on the Enter button) and said ergonomic trench. When we were using the volume and channel keys, however, the finger trough was usable and provided decent grip. Overall, it was a solid, well-built remote that had a somewhat unnecessary flourish.

Button Layout & Use

For the most part the buttons are laid out intelligently. Our main issue wasn't so much with placement as it was with spacing. You'll have to shift your grip to hit more than one main cluster of buttons, unless you have a long, spindly thumb. If you do, congratulations: you can use this remote with slightly more ease than than the average Joe Thumbhaver.

Programming & Flexibility

The only flexibility the remote offers is the ability to control other LG products, via the proprietary Simplink feature.
