Features Aside from sheer size, THX display certification tops the LG 60PG60’s feature set, and it basically means that this TV 6p0g60 passed that company’s series of standards for a variety of picture quality areas, 60;g60 contrast ratio, color accuracy, video processing, and others.

Don’t show this again. If you’d rather handle the set-up specifics on your own, you can begin by selecting one of seven picture modes, including the THX Cinema mode and two Expert modes.

Gamma control is also available, and LG has wisely included several features to help prevent or counteract image retention, a common plasma concern. LG threw in a variety of settings to combat potential burn-insuch as an all-white screen, an inversion mode that shows colors in reverse, and a pixel orbiter that slowly shifts the entire image around the screen.

We were also really annoyed that LG neglected to include a dedicated button to toggle between aspect ratio settings, instead including a “Simplink” key for compatible HDMI-connected gear that most people will never use. Compared to the best plasmas out there, the Llg fell 60pg06 bit short on black-level and bright-room performance, although standard- and high-definition video processing was excellent.

Two component video jacks, a VGA-style PC input 1,x1, maximum resolutionan RF input or antenna or cable, both optical and coaxial digital outputs, and an RS port for custom installation round out the back panel.

Plenty of adjustments are available in the Expert picture modes, including a comprehensive point color temperature control. If you’re ready to pay up for awesome image quality — but not all the way up to an OLED Not much, says Scott Wasser.

THX is the only one of the 60PG60’s picture modes that cannot be adjusted. We also appreciated the Quick Menu, which allows control of aspect ratio, picture presets, 60;g60 other options without having to deal with the full menu system. Compared with the tough plasma competition from Panasonic and Pioneer, however, this LG still can’t quite match their overall picture quality, although it’s still a very solid performer.


The 60PG60 lacks a program guide and picture-in-picture functionality.

We liked the simple, straightforward design of the menu system. If you’re counting, that’s 66 total “slots” over the set’s 11 inputs, for a range of adjustability that should satisfy even the tweakiest of viewers.

A raft of other adjustments is available, too, such as gamma and noise reduction. Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic. THX has been known for many years for its certification of audio products, but only recently has the company moved into video certification. Discussion threads can be closed at any time at our discretion. The Bad Less accurate color decoding and grayscale in THX mode; produces lighter blacks than the best plasmas.

A little illumination would have gone a long way. Best TVs for Visit manufacturer site for details. With stand, the inch plasma measures This gigantic, inch plasma has essentially the same specifications as its inch brother, the 50PG60and it gets basically the same review–just 10 inches longer.

This plasma model also includes LG’s new Fluid Motion Hz technology, designed to render smoother movement. LG chose to call its zero- overscan mode Just Scan, just like Samsung, and we’d recommend using this mode with HD content unless you notice interference along the extreme edges of the screen, which can occur on some cable ad satellite feeds. Nowhere does THX outline its exact standards–company representatives told us that doing so would be giving away their “secret sauce”–but at least the certification allows the PG60 to claim superiority and tout an appropriately named picture mode.

Vizio and TCL are going head-to-head to deliver the best picture quality for the money Below the screen is a simple angled-back horizontal strip, accented only by the chrome arc of the power switch on the left side.


Continue to next page 01 Like many new HDTVs, the 60PG60 offers a choice of “home’ or “store” upon initial setup; selecting “home” is supposed to cut down on energy consumption, but according to our Juice Box resultsit didn’t tame power consumption very much in the default setting.

We’ve changed, we promise. Expert also adds a full color management system for tuning the primary and secondary color points, again a boon for careful calibrators. Runco, Vidikron, Panasonic and LG have been the early benefactors, each offering plasma panels that THX has approved in performance areas like black level, video processing and color reproduction.

We also appreciated the three levels of power saving, which limit light output to cut down on this inch plasma’s rapacious hunger for electricity. The latter lets calibrators really hone in on the D65 standard and create a more linear grayscale than would otherwise be possible. The remote can command three other pieces of equipment beyond the television itself. We found the cluster of similar buttons around the cursor control difficult to differentiate without constantly having to look down at them.

The stark black-on-light-gray menus are legible and large, and we liked that the input menu, which is arranged horizontally, grouped active inputs near the left where they were easy to select quickly.
