Lots of light leak, tons of ghosting, nightmare delivery process
21 December 2012
Summary: Any movie with black widescreen bars is a nightmare watch due to all the ghosting. You can lower the brightness to limit the ghosting but the pictures is so dark it's barely worth it. Really poor black levels for a high-end tv. Also the LG logo in the center does not turn off and it's very distracting when watching TV or a movie. You can adjust the brightness of the logo but even with the lowest brightness setting its still obnoxious.

Random restarts and the magic remote needs some more work
5 June 2012
Summary: After having the TV few a few weeks now I have encountered more cons. When watching a movie last weekend I began noticing significant clouding. It was most noticable during the credits but I saw issues with the picture throughout the movie. On top of that, the TV has been randomly shutting off and restartng on us. That was the last straw for us, I'm returning it and getting a Samsung PN60E550 60-Inch 1080p 600Hz 3D Slim Plasma HDTV (Black) instead.
