"Nice TV, Reasonably Capable DLNA Implementation!"4.0 starson by J-Stewart
Pros: Picture is great and the specs are impressive
Built-in speakers has been adequate
Cons: The apps are pathetic
Summary: I've had this TV for a few weeks and am pleased with it. The picture is sharp and overcomes the ambient light issues we have in the family room where it is installed. While I have it hooked directly to my media server PC (running TwonkyMedia Manager) via HDMI cable, the DLNA implementation (plugged into my wired 1GB Ethernet network) is nice and actually easier to use than the 1920x1080p PC-mode display.
My only gripe is the separation of digital and analog TV stations into separate groups. Rather than interleaving the digital and analog stations into a single sequence, you either have to cycle through all of one group before getting to the next or you have to specifically select a channel from either group (not all that difficult) to allow you to cycle through that group. My Samsung and Sony Bravia TV's behave in my preferred manner. The audio from the built-in speakers has been adequate for my needs. While I've played around with the free LG applications, I consider them a frill that isn't worth my time.
If NetFlix ever provides a reasonable selection of new movies, I might consider using that embedded application, but for now, the basic TV capabilities are sufficient. Overall, I'm quite pleased with my purchase.
