LG_60PZ950_3D_Plasma_HDTV_review_angled.jpgHigh Points
� The 60PK950 is a 3D-capable TV. It is THX-certified for 3D and 2D content.
� Plasma TVs generally do not suffer from viewing-angle limitations or significant motion-blur issues.
� The TV has plenty of connection options and picture adjustments.
� The 60PK950 supports a wired or wireless network connection. It can receive streamed content from a DLNA server and includes the robust Smart TV media platform.
� This model is compatible with LG's Wireless Media Box to wirelessly transmit the A/V signal from source to display.
� Plasma 3DTVs generally keep crosstalk to a minimum in 3D content.
� An RS-232 port is included.

Low Points
� LG does not include any 3D glasses in the package, and the glasses cost $129.99 each.
� Plasma TVs generally are not as bright as LCDs, which is important with active-shutter 3D technology.
� The 60PZ650 does not include a "smooth" de-judder mode for films sources.

Competition and Comparison
Compare the LG 60PZ950 with its competition by reading the reviews for the Panasonic TC-P50GT30, Sony KDL-46EX720, and Samsung UN55D8000. Learn more about 3D HDTVs by visiting our 3D HDTV section.

Conclusion
The plasma category is where you're going to find the best deals on the biggest screens in the TV market, and screen size really does matter if you want the most effective 3D presentation. Even though the 60-inch 60PK950 sits at the top of LG's plasma line and is loaded with features, it costs less than smaller LED/LCDs with otherwise similar features. This TV is currently available for under $2,000. Yes, the active 3D glasses do add to the bottom line, and LG probably won't lower the cost of those glasses any time soon...given how hard the company is pushing its passive 3D approach. But, even with a couple pairs of glasses, the 60PZ950 is still a very good deal in the 3D marketplace.
