"What can I say :("2.0 starson by Erwin1972
Pros: When it still worked the picture quality was great.
Black levels were deep enough. So 2 stars.
Cons: Dark banding around menu screens.
Dark baning with pop up screens from tv stations.
Image retention !!!
Only had it for 3 weeks :(
Summary: Dark banding visible when opening tv screen menu's. When I e-mailed LG's costumer service and showed them a picture of the problem they said it was normal. After 3 days it became worse so I called the repair service and invited them in my house. They told me the banding was not normal. I had the tv for 3 weeks and it is in the repair service now for 2 weeks. I called them yesterday and the new is I get a new one.TV is back at LG's now and never something from LG again. TV was at the repair service for 5 weeks, they were waiting for LG to send spare parts and later they waited for LG to respond but after 2 weeks still nothing from LG. Now I am waiting to get my money back. I hope it doesn't take them too long (again).
Hoping that it is not an issue with the new tv. Also don't know yet if it will be the same model.

TV looked great with the one sheet glass design, picture quality was better than my old Sony Bravia 40W2000 but the banding problem was the reason to send it back. Now I am watching my Sony again.
Better luck next time but no LG. Their service is not what I expected to be.
Want to downgrade the review to 1 star.
