Exceptional for the money,
This review is from: LG 42LX6900 42-inch Widescreen LED 3D Internet TV with Freeview HD (Electronics)I bought this telly after pondering for a while over a slightly smaller Samsung 3D telly, which just so happened to be out of stock pretty much everywhere, but thankfully I'm not disappointed.
The set itself is very nice looking with a slight blue tinge to the very outside. The remote is very easy to use and also has a light-up feature for using in the dark which can be useful.
Initially the standard 2D picture was a little strange in that objects sometimes appeared not to be in the same place as the background, almost against a blue screen, however turning off the tru-motion solved this issue. Playing around with the picture settings (which are amongst the best I've seen on a telly and independent to each input) I eventually ended up with a cracking picture, surpassing the 2 year old Panasonic LCD that this set replaced. The standard def picture is very good considering the size of the telly and the high def picture is superb via Sky HD, PS3 and Xbox 360. The tru-motion setting does work really well with fast moving images, however I'd recommend leaving this off for normal viewing.
Obviously this telly also has 3D capability, which although not faultless, is more than acceptable and almost on par with far more expensive 3D tellys. Sky 3D works well without much fiddling (sitting approx 2.5m from telly), yes there's the odd crosstalk, mostly on graphics when watching sports broadcasts, but other than that not much to complain about. The depth of the picture is very good. GT5 on PS3 also works well, although the in game settings took a bit of tweaking to get an acceptable 3D picture but that's a game issue rather than the telly. The 3D glasses are pretty comfy too, very similar to Samsung glasses. You only get 1 set with the telly and additional pairs aren't cheap unfortunately.
The sound is also pretty good considering the footprint of the telly, which can be connected to an amp if necessary.
There is also the now pretty much standard internet tv functionality, however I don't use this so can't comment.
Overall I would definately recommend this TV given the price (I bought mine from Richer Sounds).

I have just got the LX6900, what settings did you apply for GT5 to get the best 3D pic?

Hi, I'm using parrallax set to 4 and convergence set to 0.05. I'd prefer more 3D depth but I couldn't easily achieve this without introducing too much crosstalk. The default setting of 3 and 0 didn't seem to give any sort of 3D effect. The game seems a little buggy in 3D mode but hopefully they'll patch it again to improve matters. The settings may very well be different for everyone depending on your room setup. Hope this helps.
