Only need smell-a-vision now........
on July 5, 2011
I purchased this LG-55LV3700 TV in the hopes that I would be more than happy with the changeover from a Sony TV,and other than it only having a 60HZ in it, I have to say I wound up happy.
Most reviewers had said they didn't notice the 60HZ compared to a 120 HZ or higher, but I did.....I thought. It was noticeable when watching sports, but as soon as I changed some settings...it greatly improved.
Other than this problem...this television rocks !!
The picture is phenomenal. Clear as a bell. And the sound is more like a stereo sound than I've had on any other TV, including having it hooked up to a surround sound system. Now, with this LG on my surround system, I can barely play it on a #10, or it's too loud.
I haven't noticed any blasting commercials, but I had to change the "Intelligent Sensor" settings because as soon as it got dark out & in the house, the picture got way too dark for me to enjoy. It came to me set on "energy saver", but I keep it set on "low" now & it's fine.
Finding all the "smart" features is easy too. No problems with this either, but I did not receive that special remote as I had thought I'd get, while seeing it on the "specs" part of the advertisement for this TV. Only got the regular remote.
I still need to find the calculation wizard thingy on this TV. I just can't seem to find it yet. But after adjusting the Intelligent Sensor, it really doesn't seem to need much more adjusting. I would like to test it out however.
Soon as I find it, I'll let you know. It may be on the disk that came with the TV, but of course, just like a man...my friend has not even tried to play them yet. I guess I'll have to do it myself when he isn't around...ha ha. You know guys...you have to be less stubborn about these things. I can't believe he is complaining when he doesn't even try to play the disk !! (sorry )
Oh well...always a shortcut to everything. No surprise.
Other than this...this TV is awesome. I didn't notice much difference in the smaller size of the screen, going down to a 55" from a 60". And if you think the frame looks bad on this TV,just because it doesn't have a Lucite edge like a lot of other new sets do....think again. You don't even notice any frame on it. It's black for goodness sake. Who sees this ? And the set itself is so thin, it nearly disappears when you walk by it. If I had it mounted on my wall...it would disappear !!
I love the fact that it comes with a swivel stand. We all don't have our seating straight in front of the TV, & this helps.
I've compared this picture with other brands, and although I was a bit hung up on getting a Samsung...for the price, this TV is better. Samsung is getting as expensive as Sony now, and I just don't think they're worth it anymore either. I struggled to afford a Sony the last time I got a TV, & I had too many problems with it. I was very glad I had a service contract on it !! At least when they finally couldn't fix the same problem it had for over 3 years, they gave up & sent me a replacement check so I could buy this LG.
The first movie I watched on it, made me feel like I was in a theater & I was shocked at how great it was. Both picture & sound were very impressive !! Yes...I use a surround sound system, but it never worked this well before.
If your thinking of buying this LG-55LV3700, do not hesitate. You will be very happy with it.
Great picture, great sound, great price !! Plus...you can go Wi-Fi, cause they include the dongle with it. Yippeee !!! No more wires !!
But tell me this please.....What the heck is a "dongle" ????
