LG Electronics 60PB6900 60-Inch 1080p 600Hz 3D Plasma TV
Although LG's plasmas haven't generally been as good as those from Panasonic and Samsung, the dwindling selection of new plasma models to choose from brings them back into consideration. LG has made some improvements over older models and tend to offer decent performance at a reasonable price.
The 60PB6900 is the highest plasma model for LG in 2014, as well as being the only choice this year if you're looking for a brand new plasma TV with active 3D. However, the TV is only "3D ready", meaning that the glasses must purchased separately. At 60 inches, a price of under $1,200 is very affordable and as is typical with plasmas, the 60PB6900 has excellent side viewing angles, with overall solid picture quality. Although not as bright or rich as Samsung plasmas, the 60PB6900 will look very good in a dark room.
LG's Smart TV interface has also been streamlined, making it simpler to use. Connectivity is decent, with three HDMI inputs and three USB ports included. Gaming performance is solid as well. Despite some input lag, it’s not substantially worse than average. While the LG 60PB6900 might not particularly stand out to those used to the performance put out by Panasonic plasmas, it is one of the better choices available in terms of new models for 2014.
