Not part of its original plasma lineup for 2013, LG slips in a single model (so far) series, the 60-inch PN5700. Why LG chose to name this model the PN5700 instead of putting it in the 6000 series is a bit confusing. The LG 60PN5700 has more video features, is a Smart TV and has increased connectivity both in technology and in ports.

The LG 60PN5700 video is enhanced by the Full HD, Triple XD™ engine, resolution upscaler, dynamic color enhancer and the Picture Wizard II. This panel also carries LG’s 600Hz Max Sub Field driver, to handle motion.

Smart TV on the LG 60PN5700 gives you built-in Wi-Fi, a full Web browser, and with LG Cloud you can take your content with you and view it on your smartphone, tablet, PC as well as your PN5700. LG has a very attractive and organized Smart TV dashboard. Organized in cards you can choose the apps you want and categorize them for easy access. At the bottom of the dashboard is a ribbon with menu options. Expect the usual apps for streaming video, TV programs and music as well as the social media apps, news and sports. You’ll also be able to choose from a catalog of other free apps and download from the Internet.

Although the LG 60PN5700 is also capable of voice recognition, you’ll have to cough up some extra cash to get LG’s Magic Remote because LG only pops for the generic remote. If you are going to be using the Smart TV and browser, I highly suggest getting the Magic Remote, it is possibly the most intuitive and easy to use Smart TV and Internet interface today.

If you like to Skype and Skype big, you can make use of the 60” screen to talk with friends and family. You will, however, have to reach into your cash cache and buy a camera/mic for the 60PN5700. The 60PN5700 also is Pentouch ready, meaning you can upload your pictures to the 5700 and use the Pentouch to annotate directly on the screen and save them. Sound like something you want? Then keep your wallet open, because LG doesn’t include this either.

This is the year of enhanced connectivity to smartphones and tablets. As most people use these devices while watching TV, LG loads the LG 60PN5700 with options to share files and mirror content. If you have something on your smartphone to share, you can upload to your TV using wireless Miracast® or MHL® cabled USB. With MHL, you phone can charge as your sharing content. The LG 60PN5700 also is DLNA Certified®, has SIMPLINK™ and is Windows 7 certified.

The jack pack on the 60PN5700 is more generous than the PN6500, providing you with three HDMI, three USB, a shared component/composite input, one AV and RF input, a digital audio out, LAN and an RS-232 for service.

Design on the 60PN5700 doesn’t inflict awe or WOW. The black bezel is fairly thin around three sides doubling in depth on the bottom. It the trapezoidal base that I find to be hugely unattractive, but that’s just me.

I picked it up yday and installed my Tv today. Tv is pretty heavy and requires two people to lift it. Plugged it in after hooking it upto my receiver. It detected HDMI1, Bourne Identity from my Blu Ray was very good. I have watched this movie atleast 10 times on my 50Inch top of the line 2008 Panny plasma. The picture quality and sharpness looked equally good. I would have liked a little more pop in the color but my color was set to 40. I will tune that later this evening.

As with my previous plasma, the screen is very reflective. During day time dark screens make the reflections prominent. Switched to some colorful youtube cartoons through the app and I did not notice the reflections as much.

Black levels seem impressive, need to check again at night.

Switched the input to my comcast HD feed. Checked out AMC TV- The last Samurai. Here, I could see that the sharpness in panaromic scenes was a little off. Again this is probably cos I went from 50 to 60. For close up scenes, the sharpness was pretty impressive. Checked planer of the apes and it looked awesome. need to wait for dark before my final judgement.

Finally, I tried playing some video from a web browser. The ads prior to the video played fine but the video itself did not queue up. I guess it supports flash.

What I like:
The bezel is very thin, makes the tv look sleek, not bulky. My 2008 plasma had a 3 inch bezel which made the tv look bigger.
Colors and picture quality - without any tuning looked decent.
Apps- there seems to be an option to download apps.
True Motion Plus- Turned off by default- You can turn it on to get that dreaded soap opera effect if you like it. and it is every bit as bad as it is in LED tvs when set to high... I hate it but just saying.
Cost- seems like a tv that has most of the features except 3D. So for the price, I think excellent value.

Cons:
The power socket is right where the tv mount would go, so plug it in before mounting it.
All the plug in options are towards the left hand corner and not the bottom center. It makes sense to exit the cable management and plug right in but that is not the case.

1. Colors are better than LEDs, this is new 2013.
2. Picture quality is not, i can see that blur for first 5 minutes after turning the TV on and even after that. Faces are not clear and sharp.
3. I see that picture is really stopping and not in a smooth flow. Its not consistent all over the screen
4. Screen is really glossy DO NOT bother to even try if you have a window in the room, not only that I have mounted this and my kitchen is right behind the living room, i can see the light reflection when the kitchen light is ON.
5. This TV is really heavy, you need AT LEAST two people , most of the apartments its risky to mount this TV as the walls arent that strong.
6. Using the remote of the TV is painful, u have to point it RIGHT towards the sensor not only towards the TV. its not a magic remote so its hard to navigate and to use browser or type anything.
7. I cant hook it up with my Panasonic home theater system, i dont get Audio through system. Only youtube works through D-IN, noone other app or channels.
8. I cant access settings while in the apps, you have to go all the out and then come back in netflix or youtube or whatever app that u r in. (dont know if this is what other Tvs also do)
9. Didnt see overheating, energy guide says estimated yearly cost of $34.
10. 60 " is a big plus.


I still feel, its worth $699,and is a SD. gives you decent picture quality and smart feature with 60" display. You cant beat this price. Plasma lovers may like this TV, but i am just used to LEDs so not me. I am going to return it. Its a pain to return this as well, i need help of at least one even to take it down from my mount.

I had to ask my friend for a favor, Rav4 with folded back seats will take this TV. so that might be the at least vehicle you need if you are planning to get it.

Hope this helps, especially when you dont have a single review on the web. frown.gif

I just purchased this tv from a local retailer. It has the best picture of any tv I have ever owned! The sound is good and setup was simple. The browser is good but a little slow on wifi.

I am happy with this unit for the most part. I bought one on a deep discount about a week ago. However, I had to return that unit due to 'shadows' in the image. There were areas of the screen which were not as bright as the rest of the screen. They were slightly less bright than the surrounding image. On 99% of the stuff presented on screen you could not detect the flaw. However, it is now NHL playoffs and one of the first things I watched on this TV was a hockey game. So with a consistent white background displayed (the ice), these shadows became fairly obvious and were very distracting as the camera panned left to right etc. I then did some more testing and found these shadows to be apparent on different inputs as well as when using the built in internet browser. So I returned it as a defective unit. The new unit is much better, but there are still small areas where shadows are apparent. The shadow contrast is much much less than with the first unit and they are no longer distracting at all. The interesting thing is that they are in the same places as the first unit, so I'm guessing it is some kind of manufacturing issue. Not sure, just giving information. The issue is sooooo minor now, that I'm not sure I would have noticed it at all if I had my current unit first. But since I was looking for it, I can see them if I am looking for them. Again, these can only be detected if displaying a bright image of one color that spans nearly all of the screen. Like ice, or if a bright blue sky fills the screen. Or if displaying a 'test' webpage that is all one color. Examples: http://www.ledr.com/colours/yellow.jpg http://www.ledr.com/colours/white.jpg http://www.ledr.com/colours/cyan.jpg .

One thing I'm not too happy with is the lack of documentation. Just one example: There is no supplied documentation on how to use the "Smart" features. They are fairly intuitive, but to supply absolutely nothing is a bit frustrating. Another example: There is a way to view content presented by your computers on your home network. But I will have to go onto LG's website, blogs etc in order to figure out how to set it up. And even on their website, you have to really dig to find what you need.

As I mentioned above, I watch a lot of hockey and it is hard to find a unit that can keep up with the motion of the puck. This unit does as well as any I have seen. I will also be watching a lot of NFL and based on what I have seen so far, don't expect any issues. I would recommend this unit to others, especially if they can get the deal I got

This TV has flawless image quality. The picture settings are pretty easy to configure and the tv is the best I've seen in a long time. There are a few other retailers who have specials and offer a bit cheaper pricing. I would like to send out a BUYER BEWARE of the title to this item. This IS NOT A 3D PLASMA TV. No 3D on this tv! Please read this review and BUYER BEWARE!!!!! But if you are looking for a fantastic Plasma (with NO 3D) then this is a great choice.

Can anyone comment on the glare? I've got 1 on hold at Frys but it would be going into a room with lots of windows.

That's what I was afraid of. Unfortunately, the windows are opposite and to the side of where the TV would have to be located, so I guess I'll pass.

Ya it definitely has quite a glossy screen
post #10 of 617
I purchased this unit last night. It's definitely a little glossy and best for a room with no windows, but my unit has no issues. So far the picture has been very clear and the blacks are pretty good, and gradually improved over the two hours i had it on. I'm still tweaking the settings to get things right, but need to spend more time with it to really know. I've defaulted to the settings posted above.

As for the blurring, the unit on Display at Frys had some blurring going on (which the sales person said was attributable to their splitting of cables from the source, and those cables needing to be replaced). Upon hooking up the unit at home with my good cables, i can tell you that I think he was right. The review above might have some cable issues to look into.

One issue I am having is that I am using the digital optical to hook into my surround receiver, and the tv will only let me use the receiver or the tv, but not both. My previous LG LED (2011 model) would allow the overlap which i would prefer, but not this one. Is this common? Am i missing something?

Im really liking this picture so far using the above calibration. I have it set a little brighter though since my room is full of lights it looks just as bright if not brighter than my sony 55" in the bedroom but the picture looks better and blacks are quite deep. I'm glad i went this route vs led lcd.
post #12 of 617
Mirco center had the deal again and I have one on hold but I have some questions.

Is it a problem to tansport it a mile or two laying down flat?

Its pretty heavy wondering if I could heft it onto a stand by myself. I can handle the weight (I think) was just wondering about the bulk.

Anyone want a 180 pound Sony Wega? lol ....
post #13 of 617
I decided to go by HHGregg to since they have delivery and will remove my WEGA, I had to go to the manager and even he was shocked they eventually they price matched it.

One thing I notice while at the store model is the black glossy trim not the grained texture mate finish shown in the pictures here. I cant stand glossy black plastic although I might learn to live with it.

Did your alls come with glossy black trim like that?
post #14 of 617
Has anyone had the major blurr and ghosting mentioned during the first 5-10 minutes of start up. I've had my TV for 3 weeks. All connected direct via HDMI to Blu Ray Player. Some Blu Rays look fantastic and sometimes there is a major ghosting that makes it impossible to watch. This happens with the same settings, no changes made. I'm on my last week to decide whether to return or keep it. Anyone had this issue on multiple occassions and has it lasted past the first 5-10 minutes of turning on the TV??

Well that sucks, can I ask where you got it? MC or F? they seem be pusing a large batch of these at below cost.

Deciding if I want to deal with all that potential hastle, I live alone and moving a 60" 80 pound TV aint easy.

post #19 of 617
I also have one at hold at MC. I was wondering if people who have it or have had this TV would say get this TV or pay double for a Panasonic? I have had a older Mangnovx forever and it sucks, so I am sure this will be a great upgrade. I am really not a TV expert and any advise would be greatly appreciated! Does this TV firmware need to be rooted/ hacked for better options? is that even a possibility with this LG or is that more of a Panny and Samsung thing? Hopefully I get a response soon because I only have it for 2 more days on hold. I have found an extremely extremely low amount of reviews of this TV also, should that have me worried?. Thanks in advance for the help.

Can anyone please confirm on their model the trim is textured mate finish like in the pictures or shiny hi gloss black?

If you play games DO NOT buy this tv. The input lag is very bad. I have done every trick in the book and it is absolutely unplayable. If you don't play video games I seriously find this tv to be amazing at the $700 price I paid for it.

Is there a game mode in this TV, if so, that didn't help at all?

Yes there is and I changed the input name to pc both only helped a little. I tried a bunch of games and it just felt off. I have a Xbox and games like Super Meat Boy were just not tight like i'm used too. I played Gears of War and I has having a hard time with the aiming. Then I booted up Quake Arena Arcade and this is where it got bad. It was absolutely unplayable and nearly made me sick haha. Another LG near same specs has 63ms of lag or above! I'm assuming this Tv is the same. I would not recommend this TV for gaming. BUT if your not gaming again this tv looks amazing and it is a steal for the sales on it. Good luck!
post #27 of 617
I just bought this TV at Fry's, since the price was just crazy good, but now Bigskeet's comments are freaking me out a little. If this TV is unsuited for gaming, I'll have to return it.

Once I get it delivered on Saturday, what settings should I mess with to try to make it work better for gaming?
post #28 of 617
Go to picture settings switch it to game. Also on the controller there is a av button push that and put it on game mode too. Then change input name to pc. Thats all you can do. I may be more sensitive. Try it for yourself you might be ok with it. But for twitch gaming or first person shooters you will feel something i think. Good luck
post #29 of 617
I had no problems gaming but I was playing madden.. It felt a little weird but it was because TV was so much bigger than my previous one... Try switching your aiming speed. TV looks great it self just have to find best settings. With color and back lighting. Found good settings from YouTube video
post #30 of 617
Any chance you remember which video it was? There are so many search results on YT for this TV which claim to be "reviews", but are in fact ads, that I can't find anything worthwhile.
