"Sleek.... impressive.... (speachless)"4.5 starson by reallyme07
Pros: Great features, numerous connections, Great picture quality, Awesome design.
Cons: Slight back-light "blooming" issues. Annoys most "videophiles". Majority of non-tech savvy public won't notice. Average speakers.
Summary: Excellent picture with plenty of settings for adjustments, makes this a very versatile LED-LCD TV. There is a slight "blooming" effect with the back-light that would annoy most videophiles, but this only occurs during black screens or extremely dark scenes in programs. No one I showed the set to noticed this effect unless I literally pointed it out.
The speakers, in my opinion, are no more or less special than your average flat panel speakers. Although there are numerous settings available to tweak, I highly recommend configuring a surround sound/receiver setup or at least a home-theatre-in-a-box, if you're planning on making an investment on a tv of this caliber. It is greatly worth the investment.
The 3D effect is amazing. There is, yet again, a multitude of options to tweak in 3D mode, such as depth, sound, and even left/right eye alignment, which can be very useful. And the 2D to 3D feature makes it even more intriguing, and works far better than my expectations, especially on video games.
The remote is very simple and intuitive. Is you ever messed around with a Nintendo Wii, you've already know how to operate this remote. It is a very simple point and click interface, and even has a built in Infrared Blaster to program to your television provider's equipment very easily.
The tv is Internet connectable with built in WiFi and Ethernet capabilities. Both work flawlessly. There are downloadable games and apps thru LG's marketplace. And preloaded apps (i.e. Netflix, YouTube, Pandora) for your streaming pleasure. There is also 3D content provided via rental thru Disney and LG themselves thru a 3D world section.
The design of the tv is very striking. It has very thin edges (bezel) about the thickness of a fingernail, and the stand is very futuristic looking and is very sturdy despite the way it is designed.
Overall, the is great tv for those looking a new LED tv at a decent price. The store demos do it no justice at all, and it is configurable enough to satisfy anyone's taste. I highly recommend this set to anyone shopping for a new tv.
