This review is from: LG Cinema Screen 55LM7600 55-Inch Cinema 3D 1080p 240Hz LED-LCD HDTV with Smart TV and Six Pairs of 3D Glasses (2012 Model) (Electronics)
I was walking through Best Buy a couple of weeks ago and the picture on this TV stopped me in my tracks! (seriously.) The Best Buy sales person stated it was running on the store's 720p satellite, which, if true, was even more stunning! The TV itself is sleek and sexy and minimalist. I love how there is virtually no physical border around the top and sides of the screen which is a great space-saver (you don't have a 2" plastic frame around the picture, reducing bulk.
After getting it home it was packed amazingly and the stand was very sturdy and assembled quite easily. The TV itself was heavier than I thought it would be so it took two people to get it up on the TV stand.
Generous HDMI inputs as well as an optical and composite for older tech like my older Bose lifestyle home theater. I plan on hooking my new Mac Mini to this as the monitor. DROOL!
The 3D is very nice and, in my opinion, better than the movie theater. I am not real informed on the differences between passive and active 3D glasses, other than one uses batteries and electronic shuttering and the others are, well, glasses with one side darker than the other. This is a passive TV and things are stunning and the TV comes with 6 pair. Also, if you need extra glasses for a larger group or replacement, the Real-D movie theater glasses work great so just bring a pair home...
In regards to the on-board speakers, I never use them. If you have a TV this awesome you need a home theater with surround. Kind of like buying a corvette with a 4-cylinder in it. They are unobtrusive but do add to the bulk and weight of the unit and I wish they could be detached.
The picture was great right out of the box but I have a very keen eye and I knew some adjustments needed to be made. LG has great software and a plethora of adjustment options, some fairly complicated for more advanced users. I would recommend putting the picture type on "vivid". It will blow your mind! The picture and contrast and color are incredible. I will say that animated features are stunning! Just Stunning. I recommend watching Puss In Boots 3D Bluray and the animated movie "9" on Bluray (non-3D) to see what I am talking about. I watched Tangled on Bluray last night and...wow!
Other reviewers mentioned "edge flashing" or "bleed" and I have noticed this as well, but only on menus and things, NEVER when it counts, like during a movie. Blacks are inky and nice.
The magic remote is nice and if you have played a Wii you will be right at home. Overall I feel it works well but needs some accuracy tweaking.
On-board 2D-3D conversion is pretty cool but not as good as something filmed in 3D.
BUY THIS TV!
It's been about two weeks since my purchase and this TV is still as bad-ass as ever! I'd give it 6 stars if I could!
Still bad-ass as ever!!!

Can this TV Play MPEG or any video format from the USB?

I believe so though I have not done it. Check detailed product description.

The product description doesn't says it can play mpeg video same as Samsung 3D HDTV but the Samsung can play mpeg video. Is it possible for you to try it for me? Hope you can help me with this because I want new TV badly.
Thanks in advance.

Dear Ms.... Thank you for emailing LG Electronics. I am delighted to hear from you as a valued customer. I would be happy to assist you. Having to try to play an MP4 file with an LG television effectively and given that MPEG files are standard download, 47LM7600 may play the file without a problem. LM series is the latest model out in the market for LG Televisions and every model is an enhancement for the previous once. Please ensure that the MPEG file is not copyright protected in order for you to view the file through the television. I hope I was able to answer your inquiry. Thank you for choosing LG! Best Regards, Keith LG Customer Service
I recieved this email today from LG and so happy to know that it can play. thanks to you also btw. I just order my TV without the free glasses but they deducted the price of the glasses in my order.

As an FYI, the LG also plays .flv files from a thumb drive. That is HUGE. So if you use a program like VSDOWNLOADER (which is free) that will capture .flv files from almost all video sites, you can watch them on the TV without converting them. Nice unexpected bonus there...

TO ALL LOOKING TO BUY THIS TV, make sure you buy from Amazon. There is some seller trying to sell this TV for $2,500. Amazon is selling it for way below that. Make sure you look carefully at the price/seller before purchasing

I've had my LG 7600 since 1-3-13, and thought I had a pretty good picture, until I read your settings this morning. I took a few moments to adjust the picture, and it is now EYE POPPING! I think the biggest difference between my former settings and yours is that my backlight was on 60% instead of 100%. I just can't get over the amazing difference! Thanks again MC. John
