Feature for feature, with quality as my highest expectation, this TV can't be beat. To find an LG TV priced like the cheap low-end brands was a dream come true. So, my first instinct was that it was too good to be true. I waited, watched the reviews and was expecting the 1 and 2 stars to quickly follow, but instead, the reviews remained top ranked over several weeks. As more came in, I extended my search of the same model at other online competitors and the reviews there were all glowing. So I bought it... and glad I did. Some of the highlights are:
It works! But, often you need to play with the settings. I streamed a show from Netflix to see if it would play in 3D and it did. And looked pretty good after I increased the depth in the 3D menu.
Wifi: This TV does not have native Wi-fi, but hooked to my blu-ray player that does and it had no negative impact on picture quality or connectivity.
Digital airwave TV: Without an antena, the TV couldn't pick up a single channel, but once I hooked up a basic flat antena, it got all the channels available in our area and with excellent reception. This is no different than any other TV we've owned, hence why I had an antena handy.
Picture Quality: at 120 htz, you easily notice the superiority over a standard 60 htz TV. Very little motion blur and the tru-motion seems to work. I've never compared a 120 htz TV without tru-motion to one with, so I can't say for sure, but I'm very pleased with the picture quality, even in fast action movies and sports.
Sound: Some mention the sound being too low. I'm hard of hearing, but at 50% volume, I can hear the TV just fine. DVD movies have that annoying habit of blasting music, then almost mute for dialogue and that is no different for this TV, because it's the DVD, not the TV. For those wanting Imax surround sound theater experience, you would need a sound bar or home theater setup, but this TV doesn't need it for regular movie viewing, in my humble opinion.
In short, I concur with all the raves on this TV. The reason it has such a high rating, despite the low price, is because it is a quality product. Dollar for Dollar, I don't think you can find a better TV!
