  The LG 50PA6500 is a 50" plasma TV without a lot of bells and whistles -- it is neither Wi-Fi ready nor does it offer 3-D imaging. It does come with a self-calibration feature for finding the right black level, color, tint, sharpness and backlight levels. The TV has a 1080p resolution screen that can be viewed from many different angles. The television can be connected to a PC for use as an oversize monitor. It is also Energy Star compliant.
