Pros - Picture quality is quite good.
- As a gamer: DUAL PLAY!!!
- Sexy, sexy design (you can cut a cake with this thing if you want)
- Passive 3D >> Active 3D (IMO)
Cons - I don't really use the Smart TV features, so it seems a bit of a waste (for me, of course, I can't say for everyone else).
- Because the bezel is so thin, I am afraid that if I knock into it accidentally, it'll just break.
Summary CNET's review seems a bit puzzling to me. My TV set looks great, and I see nothing wrong with the picture quality. Of course, however, I am no expert, so perhaps their review reflects those of someone more technically inclined with a really sharp eye (I don't understand any of those color charts and such). Or maybe they actually received a sub-par unit in the early-production of that model. In any case, without going into anything technical, I would say that the picture quality is quite good. Amazing, in fact. And I think one of the best features for me, personally, is the dual play, which CNET seemed to downplay a lot. Allow me to explain: I love having friends over to play video games with me, but I absolutely HATE playing the game split screen. Everything just looks so cramped, and overall, it just sucks. With the dual play, both my friend and I pretty much have the entire screen for ourselves! I think the more you try it out with a friend, the more you will appreciate it.I realized that I accidentally posted this on the EM9600! This is about the LM9600.

Pros I can't find a word to describe this TV.. It just looks perfect in every aspect
Cons Somebody tell me when you find one
Summary I personally think this is probably the best thing that ever happened on this earth but I really want an expert's take on it. I see lot of people are writing bad reviews on this product and it's cool because they are probably getting paid or they just didn't have the privilege to see this beauty in person.
"LG's monster TV"on by brynn2012
Pros amazing design. Paper-thin display and overwhelming picture quality.
Cons I will say its price
Summary I really desperately want this TV but I can't afford it at the moment.. Considering the tech LG pulled inside this TV, though, the price seems reasonable. I honestly think LG beat Samsung with the OLED. I have been observing LG's growth in the past few years and LG improved a lot. I hope LG keeps it up and comes out with something even better in the future.
Pros insane picture quality and ultra thin body
Cons price (maybe)
Summary I don't understand why people aren't giving this TV 5 stars.. I know it's expensive, but look at the darn TV.. price really shouldn't be a factor when it comes to critiquing an electronics. It's all just a marketing strategy. you all should know that by now.. I just can't stand people that listen to what others have to say and change their perspective of the whole brand. This is a new technology and it's a good technology. LG did a real good job.
Pros Striking aesthetically
Unbelievably thin, looks like a pane of glass
Color and black levels are great
Cons Picture quality lacking
Price I'm sure
Summary Having seen this television today, I must say I was underwhelmed. You cannot deny that the OLED TV's by LG and Samsung are striking aesthetically. Their thinness is unbelievable. From the side, these sets look like a pane of glass. In addition, their color reproduction and blacks are very good. However, the clarity of the HD video was lacking. Especially, when compared to the top LED TV's on display at CES. I actually preferred the picture quality of the top of the line LED and Plasma sets vs. the OLED TV's at CES. Maybe, it was the video signal. It could be that these were early production models. However, considering the stage at CES, I would think Samsung and LG would have presented these sets with the highest quality picture possible. If style and flair are your thing, you will love these sets. If you're a audio/videophile, there are better pictures available.
