I have two LGs, a 50" PA6500 (14 months now) and a 60" PA5500 (2 months). Me being cheap, I bought the first one because it was available at an unbelievable price compared to other name-brand sets in the store. My second LG was brand loyalty, along with the good price. Like a previous poster stated above, the consumer reviews are consistently good for the PA6500/5500 models and I can vouch for that as well. I do think LG made a bad move removing a hdmi input for the 2013 PN6500 model.
