Has anybody gotten a NON-LG USB wireless adapter to work with the PK750? Thanks (Not talking about the guy who posted with an ASUS repeater)

No! I've tried several, then contacted LG. I was told that only the LG anwf100 dongle will work.

I wanted to know if it have the buzzing issue the PN58B860 had.
I was amazed the new PN58C7000 had a louder buzz then the old PN58B860.

so I decided to go with the 60PK750.
first it is bigger and heavier.
I tested both 60PK750 and the new PN58C7000 side by side at that time I had both original remotes so I played with both TV for more than an hour.
the end result picture quality is almost the same with a slight lead to Samsung.
the Samsung had a little less glare. And a little less letter ghosting.
the LG 60PK750 had many more pictures setting options and I found the menu easier to use.

the only thing I didn't have in the store was an internet connection.
I went also the LG way because it says on the web site its Skype ready.

I have the TV over a week.
the internet features work.
but I can't find any Skype application ?
I thought maybe I need to connect a camera to the usb so it will show up but nothing did.

there were few updates to the yahoo software that I did but the Skype dose not exit on the TV.

Did LG lie on their web site ?

would like your insight into the matter.

regards
Jeff cowe

That is my BIGGEST disappointment about this TV so far. When I purchased it back in late March, the LG website said that it had the trublack filter and many other features that this TV does NOT have. When I contacted LG, they just said "sorry" and will remove the information from the website. Whatever! That was the entire reason for my purchase!

This is my first HDTV purchase, so I have nothing to compare it with. I'm happy with the picture quality. I'm just very disappointed with LG's FALSE ADVERTISING!!!!!

HI all
I just received my 50PK750 and I am VERY disappointed:

- No Network connection so NO DLNA
- No Bluetooth
- only 3 HDMI
- only 1 USB

Belgian website LG:
http://www.lg.com/be_ne/tv-audio-vid...50-INFINIA.jsp

WHAT IS THIS !! FAKE ADVERTISING ?
LG will receive a mail /call from me
(I paid 150€ extra compared to the PK550 I ordered first but itwas not available !)

ps my firmware : V3.14

Still got my eye out for the right plasma. Doesn't have to be perfect, just needs to work well for me in a couple of areas.

Can anybody tell me how well this handles movies in 24p? Do the real cinema 50 and 100hz options look nice? Also despite the high input lag tests, how does it feel playing games?

The more trusted review right now on internet about the pk750 is the chad b review
this he's review http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...php?p=18454144
and website http://www.hdtvbychadb.com/index.html

he is a trusted reviewer people take hes review very serious.


he said that the 750 has some software bug that can be fix with a firmware but 750 has problems and he even give more points to the pk550 uk cnet is giving more point too i was with the 750 and i exchange it for the 550 and no regret the 550 have deeper blacks better contrast and handle 24p better you will have to wait to get a firmware fix to see if they fix the software bug.thats something that will have to be on presure call lg.

I just got the 50PK750 set up a few days ago, and I am very impressed. I'm coming from a Samsung DLP (HLR5067w), and the step up in quality is like night and day. Colors are life-like and vibrant, blacks are deep, and the set's aesthetics are great. I got this set from Cleveland Plasma, and had it calibrated beforehand by Chad.

Note that I am not a gamer, so the TV is only used for cable and BD watching.

I am wondering - if there is a firmware update to resolve some of the issues people have been talking about here, will it "break" the calibration?

The PK750 actually has poor black level. Cnet confirms this and says it has a negative effect on overall contrast. Since they're using the same panel as the PK550, I suspect the culprit is the cheap AR film they applied to the inner glass. I'm exchanging my 750 for the 950 in a couple weeks. The PK950 uses the tru black filter that the 750 was supposed to have originally that does not double the black level.

I'm aware of the CNET review, and Chad's own observations relative to the PK550. However, my calibrated 750 looks absolutely stunning to me and my wife - it was difficult to convince her to upgrade, but now that she sees it, she's happy, too.

Are you unhappy with the way the 750 looks? Have you considered ISF calibration?

Calibration wouldn't improve the black level.

Our 60PK750 was delivered Friday, so here's a few brief comments (coming from 5 years of watching a 720p ISF calibrated 50" DLP):

In THX mode, the colors and detail are amazing. We watched HP:GOF, Serenity and King King in 1080p and I am completely satisfied. Color, Detail, and yes, even black level. Certainly other displays may have better numbers, but the 750 is excellent to my eyes. The space shots in Serenity were detailed and lovely. Any "lack of black level" was hardly noticeable to my audience. YMMV. I have not tried the Cnet suggested settings yes, but might just for giggles.

I was actually waiting to by a large LCD, and we looking at the Sony x700. I really like that picture, and regardless of what the measurebaters claim, Sony does good color. However, the price difference between the x700 and 60PK750 was almost a grand in 60", IMHO hardly justified, picture-wise.

We also looked at the Sulu-box: Sharp's Quad-thingy. BB had every display option turned on, the there were serious image processing errors....turning off the anti-judder and "enhancements" fixed the picture, but again the display was hardly worth a $G+ over a similar plasma.

I can't wait to wall-mount it, and the savings over an LCD will go toward the wireless HDMI box and a decent surround system. It's a good looking cabinet. Audio-wise, I'm a little underwhelmed...but I have not had a chance to perform a proper set-up.

-How can I test the edge enhancement bug , I can't see it on my PK750
& How can I know if i have PK550 or PK750 blacklevels?
(looks ok 2 me, not black but dark dark grey )

Got my 50pk750 Sat. Other than the too sensitive intelligent sensor (it is turned off now). I am very happy with this purchase.

Yes the the Pioneer 6020 (which I also have) does have a bit better black, but consider the price of this set. I fully recommend it.

Spindoctor, thanks for your observations, which are pretty much the same as what I said in a previous post. Using the out of the box THX mode provides a great looking picture on the 60PK750! (NOT the THX Daytime mode, however).

I haven't decided whether or not to spend the money on an ISF calibration. I've done it in the past on a number of different TVs. On some sets the calibration made a big difference, on others, not so much. I'm not sure I would see $400.00 worth of difference on my LG. Having said that, if money were no object, I'd probably go ahead and do it!

I think many of you are using CNET's review as the end all be all review of the PK750. I have to admit that I find that review pretty crappy. All the reviewer did was compare the LG to plasma TV's that cost thousands more. Everyone one of his complaints basically said, "not as good as the high end plasmas." I would hardly say the LG 60PK750 is a "high end" plasma. It can be had for less than 2k and it is a 60" not the typical 58". It does have all the features, plus some, as the much higher end plasmas. I also don't get all the talk about bugs. I have yet to see any of them. If you read back in this forum, the people who actually own the PK750 are very happy about it and I am one of those. I have yet to see any problem with 24p from my ps3, no image enhancement bug, no IR, and the blacks seem perfectly fine to me.

I owned a pk750 and exchanged it for a 550. I have a video on youtube of that forced image enhancement. I'm on my phone so I can't link you but just search pk750. I wonder about this new firmware!! That's very exciting news, what is the source?

I love the look and PQ of the PK750. The only thing I'm not satisfied with is the black level. Trying to find a good quality BD calibration disk such as Stearns and Munsil and learn how to do it myself

Had PK750 for 3 weeks in Toronto, Canada. Software ver 03.05.03 Never been any available updates and phone calls and e-mails to LG Canada and LG U.S.A. say no software updates coming anytime soon. They both claim they've heard of no issues of any kind, therefore no firmware updates required. I disagreed with them and they said the T.V. has a 3million:1 contrast ratio so how could it have poor black level.

But what about the people who are actually looking for a less reflective plasma than the PK550?
Is the difference in reflectivity between PK750 and PK550 worth the costs of a less brilliant picture?

Good point. My experience has been that every TV is a compromise; none is perfect. Everyone should choose the TV with the features that are most important to them and with the compromises they can live with.

I agree.

We had it done then because our DLP (Panny DL540) had "off" colors, and I was driving my family nuts by frequently making adjustments during shows and movies. Once calibrated, the picture became incredible: deep, real, almost 3D. At that point, I knew any future issues with color were from the source, not the display. With the pk750, I really can't see the benefit of calibration: The pic looks great as is.

Exactly! No TV is perfect, and no list of specs can override what my eyes are telling me. I love my 50PK750, and proudly show it off to family and friends, all of whom are impressed as well. It's been a very satisfying experience.

Chad Billheimer calibrated the THX Bright Room and Cinema settings on my 50PK750. When I first powered up, the default setting was Vivid, and was actually disappointed at how washed out the colors were. Then I remembered the e-mail (and calibration reports) Chad sent me, selected THX Bright Room, and was blown away.

I agonized over getting calibration, but my wife pushed me to get it since the price was so good. I have absolutely no regrets or buyer's remorse.

I don't think so. I had both the PK550 and the PK750 in my home and I didn't even realize the PK750 had an AR coating on it until it was mentioned in this thread a week later.

I had pretty much decided to get a 50pk750 for the built in Netcast features (only about $100 more than the 550 at this pt), but all this talk about the inferior black levels (750 vs 550) has me a little worried as it would be viewed in the master bedroom, mostly in the evenings in darker conditions where the flaws would be more prominent.

Sounds like it might make more sense to get the 550 and a BD570 blu ray player with netcast features. Does this sound like the right thing to do?

Also as anyone heard from LG whether a new firmware release fixing the problem will be released?

Can you share those settings? I wonder how close they are to the CNET numbers (how well do these values transfer from set to set...)>
