5.0 out of 5 stars 42lm6200 Mis-stated Dimensions and Features, April 22, 2012
This review is from: LG 42LM6200 42-Inch Cinema 3D 1080p 120Hz LED-LCD HDTV with Smart TV and Six Pairs of 3D Glasses (2012 Model) (Electronics)
Great TV. Picture Is Great. A few specs are incorrect. Some just changed on LG web site with in the past few days. The width of this tv on many sites including Amazon is 36.7 inchs. This is WRONG, Just purchased TV and width is 38.5 inches which is stated correctly in the manual included with 42lm6200 only. So beware of incorrect specs. My cabinet is only 38 inches and tv was supposed to be 36.7 inches. Over an inch to spare, but no, when removed from box tv was 38.5 inches and had to modify my tv cabinet for it to fit. Only half inch so not that bad.

Also some sites say TV had LED plus with local dimming. LG even stated that also up untill the past week when they corrected all mistakes on thier web site. TV is only standard LED with NO LOCAL DIMMING.

FYI - Has a lot of settings but a few are missing. Like notbeing able to adjust the True Motion. No On or Off or anything to adjust strength of True Motion. It is just on all the time.

This TV is great. I would not return it for anything. You can not get a better TV for the money. Picure is great. 3d is great. 5 stars even with the errors of size and features stated by web sites.

Go to the LG website (or any manufacturer's) for the specs.

I'm looking at the user guide downloaded from LG's support site for the 42LM6200.
There seems to be a True motion strength control:
Home -> settings -> picture -> picture mode -> picture option -> "trumotion"

So you can't turn true motion off??? Seems like a serious issue to me.

With a software update available in the summer of 2012 trumotion now has 10 levels of control, from off to10 different strengths

Also with a service menu tweak you can turn on local dimming.

How do you access the service menu or were can I get the info?
Thanks!
