All right, so I have spent 2 full days with my new LG 60PH6700...and I gotta say, I'm loving what I've seen so far. Amazon used CEVA delivery which had 2 guys carry the TV into my apartment, unpackage it, set it up, and make sure everything was working properly. And the first thing I noticed was a very clear, crisp picture right out of the box with those beautifully vivid colors that plasmas are known for. It's also exceptionally fast. A simple press of the "Smart" button on the remote takes me to the "command center" where I can choose among my various inputs (3 HDMI, 1 component/composite, 3 USB), choose from all the different streaming apps (Netflix, Hulu Plus, MLB.tv, and even Redbox Instant...which surprised me...though I was prompted to do a system update immediately, so that might explain Redbox).
The Magic Remote this thing comes with is also pretty slick. It seriously makes for the most gloriously lazy channel surfing I've ever experienced in my life. It has a scroll wheel (similar to a PC mouse), which you can use to quickly flip through channels. You don't even have to point the damn thing at the TV. I was just lying on the couch like a bum barely moving my thumb and just flying through channels. You could be 99% paralyzed and still enjoy this TV, lol. It also has voice command features...not quite on the level of XBox One, but you can tell it what to search for on the internet or Youtube, and it does a fairly good job of pulling it up for you.
The 3D is pretty outstanding. From what I had read, that has been a strong suit of LG for awhile, and it does not disappoint here. The TV itself didn't come with any 3D glasses, but you don't have to spend the $50-80 for LG's brand. Any bluetooth pair will work. Samsung makes a $20 pair that uses a watch battery. Or, you can get a pair made by Sainsonic that has a rechargeable battery for $30 on Amazon (that's what I did). There are many different 3D options and modes, depending what your media demands. For instance, I played a bit of Crysis 2 in 3D on my Xbox 360, which asked for the "side by side" 3D mode. It was trippy as hell. The 3D looked great (though there was some ghosting. I didn't play long enough to figure out if it was the game/glasses/TV though), but if you got a notification or pulled up the guide, it would be split across the sides of the screen, haha. Really weird. Finding Nemo looked amazing in 3D though. I can see this being a huge treat for my daughter as she gets older.
Honestly, the only "negative" I've noticed so far is that there seems to be a reasonably large disparity in what "loud" is with the TV volume, depending on where your source is coming from. For instance, with OTA television, the sound is really quiet, and I have to put the volume to at least 30 to be able to watch. However, when I play a blu-ray on my PS3 via HDMI, 30 is loud as balls, and I have to turn it down to around 12. Not a huge deal, but that seems to be a fairly substantial gap. I read something about being able to adjust volume levels, but I haven't looked into it much yet. Not sure if that can be set according to input or what, but for now, it's just something I have to be mindful of.
Overall though, I think this TV is a great bargain considering everything you get. It's tough getting a good feel for a plasma during that "break in period" though. Since I've turned down the brightness and contrast, I find myself starting to think the picture isn't that good. Then, I change the settings back to "standard" and I'm like "Oh, that's so much better!" lol. Of course, for this reason, I've also had to limit my gaming and sports watching. It'll be nice when the TV gets stretched out and can really start to perform. But right now, with the deal Amazon has going on for this thing (2% back in Amazon credit, 24 months 0% financing, and the full service Amazon delivery), I feel like I got a great value..
In case anyone else is curious, here's some more reviews I found on it.
