Horrible Viewing Angle

Anonymous, Newegg
27 August 2011
  • Summary: Very, very disappointed. I will probably not buy another TV from LG or newegg because of this. I only learned of the "D" vs. "W" panels here, and sure enough, that may explain why our picture is so mediocre.
  • Pros: 1) Very slim. 2) Light and easy to handle. 3) Low heat generation.
  • Cons: 1) Horrible, horrible viewing angle which means the picture is just mediocre, not great. 2) Bluish gray tinge on all blacks if the viewing angle is not within 20° to the left or right of center.

Pretty

Brian J., Newegg
10 August 2011
  • Summary: The sheer depth and lighting that this unit provides is why I kept the TV aside from it's problems.
  • Pros: Beautiful picture, nice and thin, lot's of settings.
  • Cons: Bad sound, period. Had to use external powered speakers to compensate. When you zoom to adjust for pictures that are letter boxed (and not available in HD) it does not keep the aspect ratio like my last TV. And the manual adjustment does not stay in memory, in other words, you must adjust every t...

Great tv, overpriced

Michael W., Newegg
24 April 2011
  • Summary: the image is fantastic indeed when the bells and whistles are turned off, so why spend extra $ for the bells and whistles? at 32" or 37", a 720p 60hz will be cheaper and work just as well. returned this for a samsung with those specs and very happy
  • Pros: Deeps blacks, great picture from all angles (be careful which one you get as mentioned in other posts), simple menu, very thin, decent sound for the gear
  • Cons: I've wondered for years why the images on some tvs look like cinema and others look like they were shot on camcorder, and I figured out how to create the camcorder effect with this tv...turn trumotion on. the only way I could get an image (which was awesome by the way) that resembled what it's su...

Please help with the Panel decision...

Lawrence Z., Newegg
10 March 2011
  • Pros: Shipping was right on time
  • Cons: I received the TV with the label indicating I received the VA panel (thanks for the feedback help with that). Reading these reviews, I'm seeing mixed feelings about the VA vs. IPS panels and can't decide whether to keep it or complain and return it with hopes of getting the IPS panel. From those ...

Great screen, back-lighting issue

Matthew G., Newegg
15 July 2010
  • Summary: Overall this TV is a great value and the picture quality is amazing... To those who complain about colors etc, follow the calibration guide, it really is nice to have this built into the TV's firmware. If I had gotten this screen without the uneven back-lighting issue it would get 6 eggs!
  • Pros: * Fast motion scenes w/lots of camera movement in HD look unreal, feels like I'm looking out a window! * Black-levels and colors are great * Can turn off power light etc, so that nothing on the bezel detracts from image on screen
  • Cons: * There was one large bright spot where the back-lighting is uneven, not a problem unless there are scenes in space or low light. This is worth removing 2 eggs alone because otherwise this TV is great. I am not too picky but I'm sure an anomaly like this will be a *big* deal breaker for some. Onl...

Gerät O.K. Bedinungsanleitung miserabel

Aljubo, Amazon
19 June 2011

Das Design sieht sehr edel aus und wirkt ansprechend, auch der Zusammenbau des Standfußes war einfach und in wenigen Minuten erledigt.Es wurde zwar eine Bedinungsanleitung...

KC, Amazon

  • Summary: Habe das Gerät seit 2 Wochen und bereits 2mal umgetauscht. 2mal ein Fehler im Bild. Das 3te Gerät ist soweit in Ordnung. Hier mal meine Erfahrungen: Verarbeitung: hätte viel besser sein können. Wie gesagt, habe ich bereits das 3te Gerät und alle waren gleich. Der Standfuß ist eine Katastrophe.
