Excerpt: I really tried to make myself like this TV. Trying it for seven days I decided to return it. It is just that bad! Even with the tilt wall mount it still isn't good. The blacks are still very gray and there is so much bright gray coming thru the LCD panel that it just washes out everything and lights up the lower half of my bedroom brightly, even when there's no picture displayed. Blacks become gray and colors very washed out.
Summary: Basically, I wish I hadn't bought it. The size is nice, the audio is decent, but the following issues spoil the overall appreciation: Picture ratio defects on a LOT of programs are all over the map- vertically crunched way below screen size, natural height but not expanded to make use of the screen, a very few programs with natural height filling the vertical space and letting the width fall where it may ( to me the only way you ever want to see it).
Summary: Getting the tv configured and set up was easy. However, after about 3 weeks of off and on use, it stopped working in the middle of using it. It just shut off and wouldn't power up. It's plugged into a UPS and there was no type of surge. LG put me in touch with a local technician who came out. As a precaution, I hired an electrician to come out and check my electric and he determined everything looked fine.
