Summary: I was happy with the TV for the first 3 weeks, although the blur during sports was very noticeable versus the plasma it was replacing. The built in browser worked well and the 3D was very cool(although content is still minimal). I'm still not sure about the Magic remote--its kind of a pain to navigate with it. Anyways, lines started appearing on the left side of the screen and by the end of the day, the TV was flashing in and out.
Summary: I just purchased this television based on the fact that LG.com says it has local dimming. However it DOES NOT have local dimming. No options for it in the settings menu and no real dynamic backlighting options either. I promptly returned the television as a result.
