Reviews from customers who have bought LG 60PM6700 60-Inch Plasma HDTV recently
|The Good||The Bad|
|Our Overall Rating:|
- Black Levels
- The 60PM6700 comes with a brand new and improved black filter, this massively increases the quality of the black levels. You can really notice how good the contrast is, with the blacks being dark and also completely even but the whites are also crisp and bright. Not only does this help with general coloring but it also gives images huge amounts of depth and detail.
- Color Accuracy
- The color accuracy is phenomenal, since the black levels and contrast are so good, it translates into awesome color accuracy too. Colors are extremely rich and it creates really deep pictures with vibrant tones. Even when viewing in 2D, the color accuracy provides so much detail that it almost looks like a 3D image.
- Video Motion
- The 60PM6700 has a 600hz refresh rate and that simply means it completely eliminates any motion blur that inferior televisions normally suffer from during live sports events or during action films. Instead the image is extremely smooth and crisp, there is no blurring or ghosting at all.
- Bright Lighting
- LG 60PM6700 has a special Intelligent Sensor feature that registers the amount of light hitting the screen and it adjusts the picture accordingly, so in theory you always get the best picture quality possible. However we did notice small amounts reflectivity on the screen, as plasma TVs have glass screens.
- The picture quality was as good as any 60 inch TV in the range; the LG 60PM6700 has 1080p resolution meaning it can deliver the highest picture quality currently possible and coupled with neat features like Picture Wizard II and Intelligent Sensor means it is extemely easy to get the perfect picture settings for you.
- Online Capability
- The 60PM6700 comes with built-in Wi-Fi so you can instantly connect to a Wi-Fi network, you don’t have to buy any extras. It also has LG’s Smart TV service which allows you to access on-demand movies and programmes, use apps and browse the web plus a tonne of other stuff. This allows you to watch movies in HD from services like Netflix, Vudu etc and you can also stream live sports events in HD too with services from MLB.
- It comes with 4 HDMI ports and 2 USB ports, which is probably more than enough for 99% of people, we think it’s the perfect amount. There are HDMI and USB ports on the side, which is perfect for anyone who wants to wall mount their TV and move the cables as well.
- Sound Quality
- The sound quality is above average for a flat screen TV, it’s not the same level of quality you would get from a surround sound system but for a screen that is only a few inches thick, it is impossible to accomodate a high quality sound system.
- The 60PM6700 has a sleak black bezel surrounding the screen with a normal black stand that also swivels, which is great for finding the perfect viewing angle without having to move the entire television. We think the design is subtle and attractive, nothing amazing but nothing too brash either.
The quality of the 3D viewing from 60PM6700 was highly impressive. We didn’t notice any blurring or ghosting so it was possible to enjoy 3D content without any glitches or technical problems. Sometimes picture quality is lost when viewing in 3D, but with the 60PM6700, we saw the same high amounts of details, color accuracy and black levels.
It does not come with 3D glasses so if you have to buy them separately, we also noticed slight flickering from the glasses when watching 3D content in bright rooms, so for the best 3D quality make sure you’re in a dim to dark room, basically try and recreate the same levels of darkness you would find in a cinema.
