Really hard to find any user reviews but did find a few videos and some information which made me think this may be the T.V. for me. It has some really nice features and is pretty easy to use and navigate menus.
Telly looked great when we got it out of the box and the stand is easy to put on but you will need 2 of you to do it. When I plugged in the Sky+HD I was blown away with just how good the picture was, for the vast majority of things it feels like you are stood right next to the camera whilst it is being filmed! Having the 4 HDMI ports is very handy as I can have the Sky+HD, Xbox360 and The 3D Blu-Ray player all plugged in without the need for an adaptor. The T.V. has the Cinema 3D built in which I was a bit sceptickle about at first but after doing some reading up it seemed like the best option for me - having 8+ people round and supplying them all with 3D glasses could cost you a fortune but as you can use the same glasses you use at the cinema you can pick them up for around 80p each!!! you also get 2 black pairs and a box of 5 coloured glasses free with the T.V. which is good.
Had 13 people round monday and they were all able to sit down and enjoy the amazing 3D programs I had recorded off of Sky, the major downside is there just isn't that much 3D content out there at the moment. I only got this T.V. as it was LED and had some good features, don't think I'd go and get any T.V. just because it does 3D. It's also quite misleading when you see adverts where they show things floating out of the screen, some things do look like they are floating in mid air but the majority of things just seem to go back really far as to give you a real sense of depth.
This is the only LED 3D TV I have really tried out but so far I've had no complaints with it. It is very good when you hook it up to the internet for browsing, iplayer, youtube etc. you can also get a cool LG Remote APP for Ipod/Ipad/Iphone which makes internet things easier. The 3D is good quality, HD viewing is amazing and the intelligent light sensor technology is very clever as well.
I would recommend if you have under £1000 to spend but do shop around as I got mine for £849 with a free 3D Blu-Ray player. Everyone that has watched anything on it says how great it looks and how much they would like one.
Hope this has been of some help to anyone as like I said there isn't much customer reviews so far. Def. get's my vote though!
Gaming on this tv is great, some net reviews say the set lags too much making gaming impossible, nonsense. I've played PS3 and 360 on this set and tested 3D on Crysis 2, Black Ops on 360 and Killzone 3 & GT5 on PS3. No issues and the effect is stunning. I probably wouldnt have played Black Ops again if it wasnt for the 3D!
Anything wrong? Well it takes a while to get the settings just right, but that it as much a factor of the screen size I'd imagine. The only other downside is the sound, there is little bass so I have mine connected to the surround sound through theTV's own optical out.
Overall this is a great TV, giving you a nice big screen, thin, loads of connections, great 3D that all the family can enjoy and with a really wide viewing angle (unlike Active Shutter 3D). This really is hassle free 3D, a couple of button presses on the remote and you're there, as good as the cinema!
*Passive 3D. Cheap glasses, wide viewing angle works with my young family and I don't worry about them breaking the glasses. Having tested Active, I can honestly I am delighted with Passive. 5 Stars.
*3D experience: The 3D really looks good for home viewing. Avatar, Harry Potter 7a, Toy Story, all very enjoyable with the added experience. 3D really adds something to Sports, Football, Rugby, even darts and snowboarding all become immersive in 3D. 5 Stars.
*2D-3D: An interesting novelty. Works well in high-quality HD programes (Frozen Planet, blu-ray LOTR etc), a waste of time in cheapily shot indoor TV (*cough*Corrie*cough). 5 Stars.
*2D: This will be subjective based on your own current TV, but this was a big improvement from my 4 year old 40" LCD Toshiba. Even my wife could see the difference. 5 Stars.
*Smart TV: Once online (Network cable, a breeze, plugged it in, networked straight away) and few software updates installed it is good.
BBC iPlayer is excellent, YouTube (due to the UI) isn't. Some of the other Apps are good as well, many are aren't. LoveFilm doesn't work at the moment ("Coming Soon" apparently). I hope and expect this to improve. 3 Stars.
*Network access. Can't yet read movies, photo's and music from my NAS. Still working on the issue. 0 Stars.
*Boring Stuff. 4 HDMI slots and the TV was a breeze to set up on a stand. Magic Remote useful but if you have iPad/iPhone/iTouch not necessary as the LG App does the same job. 5 stars
Overall 4 stars (pending the network access issue)
