LG 60PK750 Plasma HDTV Review

60 in.

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

Overall Design

The 60PK750 looks nice: it's not quite as great as some of the other manufacturers' 2010 offerings, but it still looks really great. We liked that its bezel was flush with the screen, giving the front of the TV a single, smooth surface.

Front

The front of the TV is a large, even piece of clear plastic. The screen is crazy reflective and picks up fingerprints very easily.

Back

The back of the TV has a group of ports towards the bottom right.

The ports are clustered towards the right-hand side, which is easily accessible thanks to the swivel base.

Sides

The left side of the TV features a few ports for easy access. Nothing is on the right side of the TV.

Stand/Mount

The stand swivels to provide easy access to the ports around the back. The screen might wobble a bit as it rotates, but that's common for large, heavy TVs.

The TV's base wobbles a bit, but seems sturdy overall.

Controls

The controls are located on the front of the TV, towards the bottom right corner of the bezel. They're touch controls, which would typically imply they don't have particularly noticeable labels. Fortunately, LG put symbols on the buttons that we could actually see.

The controls are touch sensitive, but easy to see.

Remote Control

The LG 60PK750's remote more or less follows LG's consistent design. There's a number pad, a small button cluster with the volume and channel keys, and a d-pad surrounded with various menu shortcuts.

The remote fits comfortably in hand.

In the Box

The LG 60PK750 came with all the basics and none of the extras. In the box we found the manuals, remote, batteries for said remote, and nothing else.

The TV came fully assembled already. The main problem you'll run into with setting up the TV is hoisting the heavy thing up where you want it.
