you also need to make sure that you have clean power when using a plasma --- I suggest a highly rated digital power supply with gold contacts

any noise in the line could resonate in the plasma --- this is not good

Take it home any way you can, van or truck.

I fit a 60" Samsung Plasma in the back of my 1997 2 door Pontiac Grand Am. I just had to remove the stand for transit.

Boy, it had to be really hard trying to squeeze that 60" thru a 2 dr car.

I seriously have to ask... are you on a binge? Your posts in this thread make it sound like you're drunk.

So quick to attack the person rather than the post.

I am running digital capacitors on my rig.

To each their own.

Just give red to trolls (see his other posts throughout this thread) so others know to disregard, and ignore them otherwise. Hopefully they'll go away if you don't give them the attention they crave.

I second that. I owned 2 Panny TVs; will get this one for my parents tomorrow.

The bridges are highly than they look, stay onboard.

Oh boy was it. I had put it in through the passenger door and maneuver it back into the trunk with the seats down. The salesperson from Fry's shook my hand and made me wait so he could go show another employee who had doubted me. He said a 55" was the largest he had ever seen in a coupe.

I don't really know how to charge TV.

Keep the panties dry, bring it home.

That's amateur hour. I plug my Plasma TV right into my flux capacitor.

Really great TV

What happens if I have it delivered? They are probably going to be transported flat -- depending on space availability. NO one is going to make sure that it is transported upright.

TIA

Yes better safe than sorry. So I wanted to have now FW'rs risk a cracked. Heck even window glass companies don't transport glass flat. I got my plasma home at only q slight angle but the roads in nyc suck so bad I still tried to avoid big bumps. The parking lot was full of idiots trying to fit tv into civics.

I would have also looked more foolish...but i had a utility knife and planned to remove most of the box. It was a tight fit but 50_60 inch plasma is great bang for the buck and 42 too small for living room. Ignore the GF 42 will look too small in a few weeks. The "too big and ugly" 50 will prove to be just barely large enough even in my smallish BK loft.

Not sure about this thread's model but the repair guy said there are known power issues with Panny. Got mine repaired year 1 under manu warranty. Then again year 2 under AMEX extended warranty, and now am just screwed.
Other than that, the picture & sound have been good.


You should plug it into a power strip with an on/off switch. Not as good as using the remote, but certainly better than removing the plug from the outlet each time you want the tv on.

Buy a new TV & spend your life doing something else.

Not available at Arlington VA (Pentagon City) Costco.

I wish there was a way to quickly check in-store inventory (calling is a nightmare IMO and the website is useless since costco.com appears to be run as a separate business from the B&M stores) Is there a way that I'm not aware of?

Calling is easy. Just give them the item #(950054). The store you call will tell you availability at all stores near you.

Grabbed 1 today. I had to go to a different store to get it.

I ended up grabbing this one and will be returning the LG LM6700 LED to Fry's. I just finished setting up the new one and I'm happy with this decision. Thanks OP!

Anyone have suggestions on settings? I like the default movie/cinema mode for movies, but I'm still trying to have a separate one for video games and haven't quite gotten it right yet.

Anytime buddy, you deserve it.

Grabbed one as well. First time I've bought a TV since 2003. My previous plasma is still working fine, but 42" and 480p just wasn't cutting it anymore.

Save your 2003 plasma. You never know how much it's worth in 2023. It's just like antique cars.

You'll love this TV, it's super nice.

What's the meaning of this?

You can still actually get this at Sams, it's there.

which costco ?

I meant Sams, it didn't change when I modified it.

What a great TV this is. I picked it up at Lilburn GA Costco yesterday. The picture is nice. The sound is awesome. I have a Panny 42inch plasma that's 8 years old and still works. So i am sure this one will last me for a while.

The sound is 2 X 20W, that gets missed quite a bit compared to the 2 X 10W average for TV's.

Anyone else pick one up?

I will just confirm that I absolutely love this TV. Maybe it's just that I'm taking several significant steps up from the old, but the picture to me seems absolutely amazing, especially at this price. I'm driving mine from a PC, and I've been having a world of fun with it so far.

awesome, good to know. thanks. I usually crank up the volume almost all the way on my other TV. With this TV, all i need is 1/3 and the sound is more than adequate.

Good to hear, on both accounts

No where in the description I see about internet connectivity and apps.

Those who bought one, can you please let us know about wifi connectivity?
I need one with that and I don't want to pay more to cable company for having a 2nd TV.

No internet connectivity on these. Do you have a bluray player/xbox/PS3/google TV/apple TV or something else like that? These days there are so many ways to get internet connectivity/apps on your TV.

Buy Apple TV for $100 & you'll be ready for the long haul.
