      • "Amazing quailty"

      Disadvantages

      • "Plastic build"

      It's pretty good, even though it was made of plastic.

      It's getting toward the spiky end of 2012, and save the surprise appearance of some OLEDs, we've seen most of the TVs that we expect to score highest in picture quality. This leaves us with televisions like the PA6500: not a dreadful plasma by any means -- no, that's the Panasonic X5 -- but one that still can't qualify for our recommendation.

      LG's cheapest 1080p plasma does some things right, particularly colors, and some not-so right, the worst being LCD-like black levels that lead to a less "present" picture. The LG PA6500's biggest problem, though, is that its competition is too good. At 50 inches, the entry-level Samsung E450 is cheaper and a better performer despite its lower resolution; if you insist on 1080p, the slightly more expensive Panasonic U50 is the way to go. Meanwhile the 60-inch PA6500 is among the least expensive TVs you can buy at that size, but we'd still recommend paying extra for the much better picture quality of the Samsung PN60E550.

      Unlike the cheaper PA4500 and its 720p resolution, the PA6500 is a full-HD, 1080p television. Apart from that though, the set doesn't have many features when compared to more expensive devices. Additions like 3D and smart TV are far from ubiquitous yet, and you'll have to pay a bit more to enjoy them. But if you want free or inexpensive streaming content then a $60 Roku HD will serve you well.

      The TV, like most plasmas these days, features 600Hz subfield driving, which refers to the rate at which the TV sends the picture to the screen, and is not actually related to 120Hz-type engines found on LCD TVs
