I bought this tv to replace my panasonic 3d tv from 2010. I wanted the newer panasonic model but came across the lg at a price tag of 2000 with glasses. I researched the specs on line and found on paper this was a great alternative. The one feature I was excited about was the fact that it could display true 24p at 72hz. This was a step up from the panasonic gt50 which displays at 48hz, but with flickering so you are forced to switch to 60hz, or 3:2 pulldown, still looks great. Set up of this tv was simple and the remote reminded me of my sons nintendo wii, kind of neat. 3d looked great, no ghosting or cross talk, and blu ray also looked good, thought I did notice some motion blur watching top gun, but the movie still looked great. Now the bad part. Watching high def programing through my cable box was awful. There was so much motion judder, as if the camera would shake during motion. I played with all my settings and nothing corrected this. Next to my panny,this wasn't even close in picture quality. I really wanted to like this tv, but after finding a review from cnet asia, I knew this was not a defect. The reviewer clearly stated that motion judder on the lg was far more noticeable than other 2012 plasmas. At this point I called amazon and returned the tv for the panny 60in gt50. This tv rocks, I have had it now for two weeks. If you like watching lots of tv this lg model may not be the best choice.

Ok, just brought this today, and decided to write a review, since I'm sure many people are waiting to hear what its like. Haven't done much with it, here are my first impressions:

- Looks beautiful out of the box. Nice slim bezel(abt 0.5"), looks very sleek. BUT,in addition to the bezel there's a black stripe running all around the edge of the screen(under the bezel), with is slightly less than 0.5". so effectively, the border is slightly more than 1", but looks nicer compared to say the thick panasonic ones (ST series)

- magic remote is cute, but too much work to do simple things (waving it around, trying to hit the correct icon etc. Reminds of the Wii!). I prefer a normal remote, and hope I can set this up with my Harmony one

- Quick test of 3D felt much nicer than on Panasonic, as the LG 3D glasses are much lighter, and more pleasant to wear. They don't look as cool as Panasonic though. I tried Avatar, and it looked awesome!

- Some people might dislike the 'M' shape stand, I like it.

- Can't comment about Black levels, I haven't done any break in yet. Screen color is dark grayish when TV is off. I guess I will first try the WOW calibration disc to see if it makes any changes.

- Matte screen is excellent. reflections are cut down significantly.

- TV audio is ok, not great, but not bad. Its definitely good enough for normal TV viewing.

I will give it 4 stars for now, and update as necessary while I get more familiar with it.

Update 5/21
Some more impressions, changed the review title, as well as answers to some of the comments:
Picture quality continues to impress. TruBlack filter was looking very good, until I put it next to my 2011 model Viera ST30...

I purchased this from Amazon on 4/30 and delivered on 5/8 with the free delivery option. The delivery team unboxed, assembled and tested before leaving. I have no complaints with the delvery crew. I was slightly annoyed that Amazon delayed my shippment for a couple of days. This seems to be the a common theme with Amazon lately when the free delivery option is selected. However, it was free...

The TV looks very nice sitting on my cabinet. The borders are thin enough that most people would probably mistake it for an LED. Unlike the TV that I'm replacing, the black tinted screen does a good job of minimizing reflections. I like the chrome plated stand which looks way better than the plastic stands found on cheaper models. The rear jack panel is well laid out with ample connection options. LG includes a ring that keeps your cables wrangled into a nice neat group.

Basic set-up was very easy. Upon the first power-up, the TV will prompt you through programming channels and connecting to your Wifi. The picture out of the box was a little to "greenish" and dark for my tastes. I went through the Picture Wizzard 2 process which took about 5 minutes and was well satisfied with the results. Much easier than the calibration disks that I've used in the past. The "magic" remote is quite efficient and works very similar to a WII controller. I wish the remote had an input select button, I find it a little monotonous going through the menus everytime I want to switch to a different source.

I spent the first couple of days watching HD programming on Netflix and various blu-ray movies. My intial impressions were that this TV had an awesome picture, one of the best I've ever seen. The problem began when I switched to my non-HD satellite receiver.

I decided to write the review after seeing all those "yes, but Panasonic is better" everywhere. I evaluated PM9700 vs Panasonic ST30 and GT30, as well as some lower end Samsungs, and found, that in my humble opinion, LG PM9700 is the best in the real world, e.g. when the room is not completely dark. I tried to make myself like Panasonic, but that just doesn't happen. I inspected them at Fry's side-by-side, and the reflections of ceiling lamps on Panni are clearly visible and really distract from the picture. I believe PM9700 is the only plasma with matte screen currently available. I have 2 kids, so it's practically impossible for me to watch a movie in complete darkness, may be once a week.. GT30 is definitely better than no glare filter at all [with no filter it's simply horrible - you are seeing screens behind you, etc., basically a mirror]. However with PM9700 matte screen all ambient lights are diffused dramatically, now you can really see that anti-glare works and focus on the picture. Easy the best anti-glare solution in the store. So before you believe all the stuff about Panasonic blowing LG out of the water and dismiss LG, I strongly recommend that you visit local electronics store and compare for yourself. ...Unless you only intend to watch TV in total darkness - but then you don't need anti-glare at all.
