Fine-tuned by renowned audio expert Mr. Mark Levinson, LG TVs utilize a unique, hidden speaker system that delivers a clean, polished look with a wider sound field.

I just received my TV a few days ago and I must say that so far I am blown away. I ordered the TV from Amazon Thursday Night and I received it Tuesday around lunch time using the free shipping. Pilot brought over the TV- carried it up to my second floor apartment and then unboxed it for me so I could check to make sure the TV worked. This TV is a thing of beauty. The one piece of glass is impressive looking and the TV is extremely flat. The image quality on this TV is amazing. Images look 3-D and seem to pop off the TV. The black levels are great (the blacks seem to match the letterbox bars). The internet stuff (like youtube and yahoo) are ok- not sure if they are worth the extra money. I have not registered for Netflix yet so that feature maybe worth it. You will not be dissapointed by this TV. Defiantly the best deal for the money of a flat screen TV. Glare is not an issue on this TV once it is turned on. We had a mirror hanging on the wall behind our couch which did cause some glare during dark scenes. We took the mirror off the wall- problem solved! I will update this after I have used the TV some more.

So after having this TV for 2 weeks- I gotta say I still love it. The picture quality is fantastic. I am also impressed with how cool this set run- it is not hot to the touch at all. Image retention was a bit of a problem with this TV when playing video games however it is lessoning as I break it in. I think it will be a non-issue in another week. It has not been an issue at all with anything I have watched on TV or in a movie- only with video games. I have activated NetFlix and I gotta say it is great. It is fast and within 20-30 seconds you can be watching a movie in HD quality. I have no regrets about this set!

There was a software update on the TV a few months ago that added VUDU, joing Netflix, so you now have two option for streaming movies on the TV now. I added a Netflix subscription about a month ago, and boy, what a world of convinience it is. You add a bunch of movies, concerts, TV shows etc, etc, etc to your Netflix account on your computer and all these show up as easily selectable shows on your TV. Having this feature built into the TV is the best thing since sliced bread. The picture quality is absolutely amazing.

I've had this TV for about two weeks now. The TV is heavy, and I wanted to mount it "flush" to the wall so I got the heavy-duty articulating Peerless IM760PU mount. This would allow me access to the back of the TV without having to lift it.

Now back to the TV. I LOVE IT. The picture quality is unmatched by anything I've seen. The factory settings do need to be adjusted, but the process is amazingly intuitive with this TV. Non HD shows are just OK, but gosh, get an HD show on this puppy, and you'll never leave home. As a matter of fact I had my buddy, who owns a Pioneer Elite Kuro over the other day, and he was blown away by the picture quality on this TV.

"NetCast, which is an internet media streaming system that is compatible with Netflix, YouTube, and Yahoo! Widgets" is great to have. I have watched YouTube videos and tried out Yahoo Widgets, but I still need to get a subscription to Netflix to get the full benefit of this feature.

I Have my newly purchased Denon Receiver AVR-2310CI and BluRay Player 2500BTCI sitting in boxes in my office while I await the AV furniture. Once these are set up and I get a chance to play a BluRay disc, I'll provide feedback.

I have been cautiously reviewing plasmas and LCD's for the past year or so. I wanted this to be a long-term purchase that I wouldn't regret in 6 months to a year. It seems the technology has been increasing as fast as the prices have been decreasing on these kinds of t.v.'s. My head started to spin and I figured I'd just hold steady for awhile. That was until Amazon had an offer of 1 year no interest and no payments on this t.v. I pulled the trigger after reading some very good reviews of this product. The only thing I became truly certain of was that I wanted it to have internet capability so that I could stream movies...this set has the Netflix "program" and I figured that was going to come in handy to have...or whatever new downloadable technology becomes available in the coming years. Glad I chose this!
I have had the set for about a week now. I'm still in my "break-in" period, so I have all the settings pretty low. However, I have sampled what the final settings will look like and I am more than thrilled with the picture quality and the functionality of the set. This is a HUGE t.v....and I mean HUGE!! It is a great looking set with one single pane of glass rather than a big outside bezel. The colors are true and rich, and I'm confident that they will only get better once it is broken in fully and I can turn on the full settings. It comes with a stand already installed, which works great. I may still buy the Sanus wall bracket, but it isn't totally necessary with this nice stand, either. The sound is actually very good. Pretty rich for just standard speakers...sounds very nice for regualar watching when I don't want to turn on the theater system.
