LG 60PK750 Plasma HDTV Review
Not the greatest performer, but a decent price for a 60-inch set with basic online features.
The LG 60PK750 has a native resolution of 1080p, the highest HD format currently on the market.
For this test, we measure out to the point where your viewing angle would only net you 50% of the contrast ratio you'd get if you were sitting dead center.
Typically plasmas ace this test, and while the LG 60PK750 is no exception, it didn't score as highly as other plasmas we've reviewed. The 60PK750 dipped below 50% contrast about 61° off center, for a total viewing angle of about 122°. This is certainly wide enough for any sort of normal use (LCDs do just fine with a total viewing angle of 60° or less), but other plasmas typically hold their contrast ratio out to 80° or further.
The 60PK750's screen is comprised of a single, unbroken sheet of glass. That makes it incredibly reflective. Any external light will essentially be mirrored back at you. The same could be said for just about every plasma TV: they're really best enjoyed in windowless caverns.
The LG 60PK750 has a handful of video processing features. None of them did were noteworthy, mainly because video processing features rarely do anything noteworthy.
