Best-Seller This TV is not a top best-seller at a national store including Amazon, Best Buy, Sears, and Wal-Mart. – LG 60PK950 Review
Resolution Designed with 1080p resolution, the highest definition available. Provides nearly twice the resolution of 720p, and allows you to fully utilize 1080p videos or programming.
Side Inputs Includes side inputs that allow you to conveniently plug-in some devices without having to reach behind the TV.
LED LED technology is only available on LCD televisions. It is not designed for use on Plasma TVs.
Local Dim Local dimming technology is only available on LCD televisions with LED backlighting.
Frame Rate This TV has a 600 Hz sub-field drive. Plasma TVs have near instantaneous pixel response times and excellent viewing of fast moving video.
THX THX certified. This LG television closely reproduces the HD Color Standard used by filmmakers and ensures smooth motion for action-oriented content. – LG 60PK950 Review
DLNA DLNA certified (Digital Living Network Alliance) for some TV inputs to promote hassle-free connectivity and sharing of digital content between home electronics.

Wi-Fi Wi-Fi capable with either a built-in receiver or external adaptor. Allows you to wirelessly tap into your home wireless internet service instead of using ethernet cables.
Internet You can access internet videos and streaming content via widgets and applications. A wide variety of internet content is available, but you don’t have browser search capability.
DVD Player Like most televisions, this LG TV does not have a built-in DVD or Blue-ray player. Most consumers purchase these items separately.
Depth This LG HDTV is ultra-thin with a depth of only 2″. Provides a sleek look, especially if you can wall mount-it. – LG 60PK950 Review
Frame Frameless, single level design that virtually eliminates the space between the screen and the bezel so that they seamlessly blend together.
Speakers Speakers provide 20 watts of total output power, which is about average. – LG 60PK950 Review
HDMI Provides 4 HDMI inputs so that you can connect a cable box and other devices such as a DVD player, video game console, and PC.
