LG 50PM680T Review

What makes a TV great? The answer is simple: good image quality and a big screen. The LG50PM680T has both these features and many more. This enormous flat screen TV is one of LG’s top of the line products and it’s easy to understand why.

The most attractive feature of the LG 50PM680T is without a doubt the 50” plasma display. It is capable of running 2D and 3D content at Full HD resolutions of 1920 by 1080 pixels thanks to the 600 Hz Triple XD Engine. The THX3D certification ensures you that the image quality is as good as it can get.

The audio side is handled by two 10W integrated speakers, featuring the Virtual Surround and 3D Sound Zooming technologies for a richer sound and the Clear Voice 2 technology for crispy clear voices. The sound is easily customizable via the 5 band equalizer. The Auto Volume Leveler II feature also contributes to enriching the sound by automatically adjusting it to an optimum level.

The LG Smart TV platform transforms the LG 50PM680T into much more than a simple TV. Thanks to the integrated Wi-Fi module, you have the internet at your fingertips – stay in touch with your online friends with the help of LG’s Social Center app or navigate to any page you want just as easy. The LG Magic Remote makes Internet browsing even easier, thanks to the integrated scroll wheel and the point and click feature. Keep in mind though that the LG Magic Remote is sold separately.

Also sold separately are the active shutter 3D glasses but that shouldn’t upset you, as meanwhile you can use the 3D to 2D conversion feature. Once you have the glasses, unleash the 3D power by converting any type of content to realistic 3D content. Don’t worry about image quality, as the LG 50PM680T can also convert standard definition content to high-definition content.

Speaking of high-definition content, you can easily find some thanks to the integrated Freeview HD tuner and, thanks to the DVR function, you can also record it on the integrated 40 gigabytes hard drive. The scheduled recording feature is quite useful if you don’t want to forget about recording your favorite show, but a slight inconvenience is the absence of a second tuner that would allow you to record from a channel while watching another one. However, a dual-tuner is a feature you usually find only in products with significantly higher price tags.

The connectivity side of this flat screen TV is quite rich, featuring all the ports you might need such as 4 HDMI ports, 2 USB ports, component and composite connections and many more. You can also use DLNA connectivity with DLNA compatible devices.
