Summary: just picked up this sweet unit From a Retail store Yesterday Since they had a storewide 20 year anniversary sale (pick out the CAPS). BTW, prior to my purchase, I've been a proud owner of a Samsung 720p LCD TV of 8 years.Edit Link
The TV is great. Passive 3D glasses FTW. It really gives you a good feel for the depth of each element in the picture. Viewing angle on the screen is pretty good too. I have my living room set up so that a love seat is off to the side (perpendicular) to the TV and guests are still able to view the screen. There is a 20degree float to both left and right sides of the TV.
User interface is pretty straight forward. I'm use to Samsung's but LG's interface isn't very far off from being the same. My only problem is the lag between the remote control and the menu selection screen. Sometimes, I'll click the down-arrow on the remote and nothing triggers on the screen so I have to press it an extra time. IMO, that's very minor.
Apps that I have tried are NetFlix, YouTube, Facebook, and Google Picasa. These apps work very very well. In addition to the remote control, LG has also bundled together a "Wand"-like remote control similar to the Nintendo Wii. It runs on AA batteries and all you have to do is point your remote at the screen, press a button to activate, and a cross-hair comes up so you can select buttons on the screen. Although, this is nothing new and groundbreaking, it is nice to see it integrated into a TV.
The physical characteristics of the TV is amazing. I see it in the stores as thin, but bringing it back home, i couldn't even see the TV looking at it directly from the side. The 2D to 3D conversion works flawlessly. I have over-the-air DTV and my fiance and I are just shocked at how simple free HDTV channels looked on the TV. That's the best part about the TV, passive 3D glasses. Now, I don't have to invest any money on those active shutter lenses.
The TV is 120Hz and has a very fluid motion when characters move in scenes. But it isn't over-the-top fluid like the Sony Bravias; I think those are just over kill to the point that the pictures don't look natural.
*** P.S.
