Improved through endless firmware patches. Amazon video streaming interface still lacking
on May 26, 2013
UPDATE 03/2014: A firmware update released by 10/2013 corrected the problems with fast movement transitions, my rate now goes to 2 stars (from just one). Their implementation of the Amazon video interface, although improved too, still freezes and requires the TV to be turned off and on again.
I have this TV for 1 year now. The first thing I noticed was that the factory setup for the picture was quite off and required a lot of tweaking. The remote control with its featured pointer is rather inaccurate, although after a while you got accustomed to it and your brain compensates for the aiming by itself. Another issue is the GUI; it is really slow to respond and during the transitions.
But the most important and really terrible thing about this HDTV is its *AWFUL* DSP that gets lost with fast movements. When watching a basketball game you see the image becomes chopped every 15 seconds or so, as the processing cannot cope with the movement. HORRIBLE!. And believe me I have tried many different setups with and without "True Motion", etc.
LG has been providing several firmware updates through the year but it seems that the problem has somewhat aggravated.
I am really disappointed with this TV (I miss my old 720P LCD Sony VEGA that broke down after 7~8 years of impeccable performance).
I would definitely not recommend this TV to anybody watching sports.
