This review is from: LG 42LX6900 42-inch Widescreen LED 3D Internet TV with Freeview HD (Electronics)have been researching TVs for about a month
once I come across with this one, realised i want it for following reasons:
- 200 HZ true motion ( most of the models currently in the market are 100-120 hz)
- 8 000 000:1 contrast ratio, which you will rarely find
- LED to save you energy + it is super slim and looks very, very modern
Very satisfied with picture quality.
The only problem is LG does not support DTS (digital theater system) media files - some movies will have this format and if you try to watch them screen will show message: audio not supported.
To solve that problem you will need a Popcorn MKV audio converter to convert audio from DTS to AC3 (AAC).
Overall very happy with purchase.
Bought it from [...] 40 quid cheaper than on Amazon

is there any crosstalk,i'm looking at this tv or the samsung le40c750.....how does this lg compare to the samsung le40c750...thanks in advance

quite similar TVs after having a quick glance
consider the following:
- there are no 3D glasses offered by samsung, which will cost you at least 50 pounds on ebay from asia (china, korea), while if you buy LG from Amazon, 3D glasses included
- LG's contrast ratio is much higher. The higher contrast ratio the better picture quality
( although different companies have different measures of contrast ratio). Despite that two main criterias I chose this TV is contrast ratio and 200 Hz.
- screen size difference 40" and 42"
I would suggest you to do a bit more research and maybe look for any other comments, or ask a member of staff of a retailer that sells both of them...

There is exceptionally bad cross talk on this set.

I have the LG and it's an impressive piece of kit. Yes like Adam I di have a little ghosting/ Cross talk or whatever it's called at first, but this seems to have resolved itselved and the 3D is great.
I have been told that the Samsung is ok but doesn't handle standard 2D very well (though I've not seen it so cannot confirm/ argue this
The 2D image with the LG however looks absolutely stunning and for the price is a real bargin without the 3D option. Sorry Adam but I think you're being far too critical of a really good entry level product imho

Mr. B. Hannah says:
Bright corners is a common problem with virtually all edge lit led tvs, no matter what manufacturer. No point in replacing, the new one will be the same. The only adjustment to try is reducing the brightness/backlight level.
