Pros + Picture is incredible
+ Sound is good for such a thin TV
+ Remote works well and the backlight button is a nice touch
+ TV's menus are intuitive and very modern
+ Nexflix apps works pretty well
Cons - TV's media functions aren't perfected yet.
Summary I bought this TV on Amazon (from Adorama) and I've been pretty happy with it so far. The only major issue was that the top right corner was damaged so there's a slight discoloration. Unfortunately, I didn't catch it until after the TV was mounted and I took the plastic strips off of the frame. Alas, returning the TV after opening it is pretty much impossible based on the store's policies. But, that's just bad luck on my part ... still it stings a little to spend $1660 on something that's at least cosmetically flawed. Thankfully the TV itself is fine.
Beautiful picture from all HD sources - Cable, PS3/blu-ray, XBOX 360, Wii, Netflix streaming, etc. I generally keep it on Standard mode, but I did set one of the expert picture presets using the built-in calibration feature. Blacks are 'black' using the local dimming feature - quite effective considering this set uses a hybrid LED backlight system. The 120hz motion feature works well and improves standard DVD picture. I haven't really noticed much bleeding from the edges, but if there is some it's minimal. Sound is good for such a thin TV and turning on the Infinite sound function helps. But most of the time, I use my home theater system so it's not really a concern for me.
The TV's menus are intuitive and very modern. The Netcast features and widgets work well also. I've watched youtube videos and they look pretty good, while Netflix movies run smoothly and look great (esp the HD ones). My TV is connected via the ethernet port to my LAN and can access my media server. I serve music (aac, mp3, wav, flac) and movies (XVID, 1080p / 720p h264/AC3 blu-ray rips) and normally use my PS3 to access them. That being said, the TV's media functions aren't perfected yet.
It'll only see about 10 pages of music folders (I've got 15000+ songs sorted by artist - album), and sometimes they don't show up properly. I've used TVersity and Nero Media Home (comes w/ the TV) and had the same results. The TV plays DiVX/XVID movies perfectly and any h264 movies that aren't profile 4.1. Alas, my HD collection is all high profile 4.1, so the TV will start playing them and then freeze after a few seconds. The manual in fact "doesn't guarantee" that these particular files will play. So for now, I'll continue to use the PS3 for network media serving. However, since the TV can be updated via the Internet, I'm hopeful LG will fix some of these bugs.
The remote works well and the backlight button is a nice touch.
Overall, I'm very happy with this TV (aside from the slight blemish on it) and I probably could have gone with something bigger :)
Honestly, there are a lot of TVs to choose from now days but I think the LG has a great feature set for the price. I'd recommend it if you're looking for a good midrange LED set with internet connectivity.

"Excellent value"on by dpujara
Pros Excellent picture quality.
Cons Yet to find one.
Summary Really thin LED TV unlike some SONYs (that are half thick and half thin) or VIZIOs (that are as thick as regular LCD TVs). Also bought from Fry's for $799 after reading first guy's review.
Pros Automatically adjusts brightness level for ambient light. Brought it home at night and picture was perfect. We have a room with bright light during day and the picture was perfect during the day with no glare. Nothing to adjust as it just works.
Cons Nothing to mention here
Summary Great value as I found it on sales at Fry's for only $799.00. Not sure why there are no online prices to match.
Pros really happy with purchase of this package.easy setup,remote easy to use, picture is excellent, user controlled adjustments are plentiful
Cons the audio output of the stock speakers leave alot to be desired,really need to be hooked up to a reciever or home theater to enjoy audio
