Can't live with the Banding or blooming

Anthony F. Bouchard "bouch", Amazon

  • Summary: I had my eye on this TV for months, ever since Cnet pronounced it the local dimming TV to beat last Spring. I finally purchased it the week of Thanksgiving. This TV has many fine qualities and I really wanted to like it, but in the end I decided I couldn't live with the picture quality issues. I returned this LG to Amazon and purchased the Sony XBR-52HX909 and I'm happier with that. The black level, sharpness and color quality and accuracy of this TV are outstanding.

  • Summary: I have gone through 4 of these televisions because I love the picture quality for an LED-LCD so much... but they ALL ended up blinking with my hdmi-input devices (PS3, 3D Blu-Ray Player, etc.). I don't know what to say... the picture quality is beautiful until the screen goes black and sound cuts out for 1-2 seconds repeatedly... A side note: I noticed this happened every time AFTER I ran the software update. I've read this problem occurs elsewhere online so be careful.

  • Summary: this led sucks- what a waste - the picture is a far from the best.. massive blooming (halo) white image on a black background. faint black lines across the screen when watching blu ray.
