LG 60PK550 or OLED?

Does anyone remember the LG 60PK550 ? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I have one from 2010 and I love it. The colors are so rich and I love the gloss screen. I have gotten many complements on it.

However, I also love OLED. I was thinking about replacing it with a LG OLED TV(there is not enough room in my apt to have both). Would I regret it? Once this Plasma is gone, it's gone forever.

I was in the same position several months ago, if one is going larger possible. In the end for myself, the delta between the cost of 65 OLED compared to what I had it was not there for the time being. In the end choose to upgrade the total experience, for myself going dual subs, until the larger OLED I could price justify, but to each one own

i'm not a believer in replacing things that are working well.

when the plasma dies, or stops providing a 'nice image', get rid of it and buy an oled.

chances are, the longer you keep the plasma, the oled that replaces it will be cheaper and better

Used LG 60PK550 for $200

Hello All, I am a fan of Plasma TV technology and have always wondered why this technology died. I have got an offer for used LG 60PK550 TV for 200 bucks. I use TV only to watch movies 2-3 times per week. Other option I have to spend is $400-500 on a used TV with a 50+ screen size?

Do you recommend to go for this deal considering it is dirt cheap? Kindly suggest.

Many thanks!

@iiser1024 , sounds like a great deal for $200 as long as you can see it first with your own eyes, verify that it's in good working condition with no screen burn-in, etc., and safely transport it to your home without risking cracking the screen which can be fragile during transportation. If you're buying sight unseen it's riskier.

Thank you so much for your reply.

I will be seeing the TV in person so I should get an idea of picture quality and issues like screen burn-in. Are there any other issues which i should take note of or examine when I see the TV?

Good deal on a 60" if critical viewing is not important. IMO I think when shopping for a used plasma you should always have your eye on the prize. Panasonic VT60/ZT60, a 9th gen kuro and even the Samsung 8500 which seems to always break(great set but is likely to fail.)
