LG 60PV450 Review: 60” Plasma HDTV
Up for Review: LG 60PV450 Plasma TV. The model comes with most of the advanced video technologies introduced by LG during recent times. It offers much better full HD resolution, along with intelligent sensor to adjust the scenes according to the availability of light and color inside the TV room. You will also like the various connectivity options included in the set to access the content stored on the digital devices and personal computer. However, the absence of the smart and efficient internet access options make the model score much lower. A user can only consider buying this set, if he is not much into the 3D movies and programs along with the content available online.
LG has enhanced the basic video related features to make the model usable to watch a wide variety of television programs and movies. Most of the latest television programs require a much higher resolution and video quality. The model offers a 1080p resolution with full HD support. These features allow you to watch various types of shows, programs, and movies being aired on different television channels. You can further enjoy the various videos, photos, and movies stored on local devices and discs. The content will be more enjoyable on a 60-inch plasma screen supporting full HD.
Similar to resolution, the subfield motion rate required by the content also differs based on the nature of the content. Some of the sports and action related scenes require a higher refresh rate, whereas normal programs like news require a normal subfield motion. The 600 Hz refresh rate offered by the set is the maximum and allows your entire family to watch all types of content without causing any motion blur. Further, your kids always want to watch their favorite sports and action programs in a more exact and realistic manner. They will love to use the higher refresh rate offered by the set to play their favorite video games on a bigger plasma TV screen.

Along with the enhanced video related features, a user also gets options to access his offline library of movies, videos, photos, and music. The model comes with 2 HDMI, 1 PC input options along with the USB 2.0 support. You can connect your USB devices to the set and access the stored digital photos, music, and video on the plasma screen. Similarly, the HDMI ports can be used to connect compatible devices like Blu-ray players, video game console and camcorder. The user can further connect his PC with the television set through the PC input option. LG has added some of the features of a computer by including a wide variety of connectivity options.
But the model disappoints without including any networking options to access internet. While some of the other plasma TV models released by the manufacturer offer much efficient wireless internet connectivity through built-in Wi-Fi, this model does not even include the traditional wired options to access internet. So you can never consider the set to stream the online content offered by a number of popular social networks and online content providers. However, you can consider the model due to its usability to watch a wide range of television programs along with your offline library of photos, videos, music and movies on a 60-inch screen supporting full HD.
