5.0 out of 5 stars Tweak it, sit back and enjoy..., 5 Mar 2014
This review is from: LG 39LN575V 39-inch Widescreen 1080p Full HD Smart LED TV with Built-In Wi-Fi/Freeview HD (Electronics)
I've hammered and tested various sources over the past 4 days and I think I've nailed it.
My picture preferences are a picture wizard II starting point in Expert 1 with a few tweaks applied for personal preference.
Most processing turned off with the exception of Dynamic contrast at Low, this really helped with the washed out look I was previously getting.
My full settings are below if anyone is interested.
Sound wise you'll read mixed reviews everywhere but a hollow tinny sound has been the principal criticism.
I think I've fixed this with very pleasing results by applying the Music mode with clear voice II turned on to 1.
Iplayer is somewhat flaky still, but if you know what you're looking for it plays perfectly.
All in all most happy with it now, the out of the box settings may drive some crazy, but then I am fussy.
I need to be savvy with the sound, as it's not always appropriate to blast the neighbours and my Kids with the T9.
