Summary: I purchased this television on 12/1/11. The television was delivered and we mounted it, hooked up the cable and dvd player. The tv looks great. Starting around 6/2012 during the routine software updates it stopped at about 50% completion.
Summary: This TV is great. Has a zillion features. Easy to set up. BUT the glare and reflections on the screen is beyond bad. I pretty much have to watch the TV in the Dark to prevent reflections which is not easy in the day time. Otherwise an amazing TV.
Summary: There are enough great reviews on this to read, I am more here to give my star value and some quick comments. I like the 3D on this TV, that is saying something considering I do not like 3D at the theater. Maybe sitting close to the screen at home helps, but I actually enjoy watch 3D on this TV.
Summary: I really, really wanted to like this TV, but it has some serious faults. First the good: 3D is amazing. Passive 3D is the most comfortable, bright, and attractive option out there. I have owned Active 3D sets in the past, and this is truly the future.
Summary: I waited since January to purchase this screen since it was supposed to have a Matte finish screen. It was the #1 reason I did not buy the Vizio Passive 3D screen. All of the other models in the LW6500 line have a matte screen, local dimming, and 240hz refresh rate.
