I just received my LG 42LM3700 and I couldn't be happier. To begin, I downloaded a firmware update from the LG site and then transferred the firmware update to a usb flash drive. Plugged in the usb drive to the back of the TV and once I turned it on, it updated the firmware automatically in a couple minutes or so. I think this update improved 3D, or something like that.

Setup was very easy and the TV was up and running in no time. Picture quality is really, really good, to my eyes. I had some people telling me I'd see some blurring on sports and such because it's 60hz, but I've been watching sports channels and have seen little evidence of blurring so far. Maybe the firmware update corrected this.

I ran the Picture Wizard which did a pretty good job adjusting the color, but here's how I got the best picture. Click on "Settings" and then on "Picture". Select "Energy Saving" and "Auto". I selected "Min. Luminance 32" and "Sensing strength: 3". I then selected "Intelligent Sensor" which adapts the picture to your room's lighting and colors. To my eyes, the picture quality is better than what was obtained with the Picture Wizard. I've seen some complain about the Energy Saving feature, stating that it was too dim, but I think that they didn't set the minimum luminance setting properly.

I did not set up the sound bar in my home theater because I already have an excellent surround sound system. However, I did hear the sound bar in action at an electronics store and it sounded pretty good, although not as good as a decent surround sound system. But if you don't have a surround sound system, using the sound bar will give you a much better audio experience than using the TV's small internal speakers. The soundbar is LG NB2022A (40 watts).

I'm quite pleased with my new LG 42" 3D TV with Soundbar. I was also considering getting a Vizio but I chose the LG after seeing it had better reviews, 2D to 3D conversion, and a Soundbar. I was skeptical about the passive 3D (as I have an active shutter 3D system already) but decided it was worth a try. I'm glad I took the chance. I like this TV even better than my 60" Mitsubishi DLP 3D TV (I'm not knocking the Mitsubishi, it is an excellent value if you are looking for a GIANT TV with 3D capabilities for your living room without spending more than $1000).

2D to 3D conversion:
This is actually much better than I expected. I watched "Underworld" on SyFy channel, and it certainly had depth. There was some blur during action scenes, but I think that is an part of the conversion process and it did not distract from the enjoyment of the movie. You can also adjust the 3D depth and other settings to make the conversion more or less drastic. Turning on the 2D to 3D conversion is easy, just press the 3D button on the remote and select the 2D to 3D option. The nice thing is that not only can it convert TV shows, it can convert regular DVDs. I've been hoping that they will re-release the movie "300" in 3D but now I don't have to wait! I am eager to re-watch all my DVDs now.

3D Blu Ray:
The quality also exceeds my expectations. I had read about the differences between active shutter and passive 3D technology, and I was concerned that the quality would be lacking. The quality is excellent. It is every bit as good as the movie theater. In comparison to my active shutter Mitsubishi DLP, I would rank the passive 3D LG as just as good, and in some ways better.

Bought this TV after a marble mysteriously broke my 50" plasma. I did not really care about 3D but saw this in the Best Buy Weekly Special ($579). Not wanting to spend $600 to buy something I already had, I thought this might add some fun to the purchase. I was not disappointed. The 3D works as well as the theater. Better yet, you can use the theater glasses on this TV in case the included glasses break or walk away. No need to spend $50 for the active 3D glasses featured on other TV brands. Picture quality is great and the sound bar is good. The feature to make 2D into 3D also works very well even on XBOX and PS3. If you are OK with a 42" screen, you will be very happy with this TV.

After long reviews and searching, I found this 3D TV combo. It is discontinued now and very hard to find. Every retail site is out of stock. I found this Seller with this combo here on Amazon(Only place you will find this tv now). The TV is great!! The 3D is great!! The sound bar it comes with is great!! By far the best TV i ever bought for so cheap. The seller gets an A+ rating from me. They had it shipped 3rd party direct to me 2 days after purchase. The seller is a great store in NYC that has been there over 30 years and there service is top standard!!! Thanks again!!!

What else can I say about this AWESOME product. It offers the full range of 3D features (Side-By-Side, Over-Under, etc), which can each be adjusted and tweaked (depth and angle) to suit your viewing preference. Be aware that this isn't a SmartTV and does not connect to the internet, it is purely a 3D LCD TV and it does the 3D part EXTREMELY well.

Just played DMC for PS3 (which isn't natively a 3D game) using the 2D to 3D feature and I was blown away. It looks even better than the ones which are actually made as stereoscopic 3D games (e.g. Uncharted 3).

The only partially negative things I can say, is that the sound from the TV isn't as loud and filled with bass like other LG models, but that's where the Sound Bar comes in to save the day. Connecting to a PC can only be done via HDMI cable, as the TV does not have a VGA input port.

Remember to download and install the firmware update (via USB) before setting it up: [...]
