I actually found one of these at a local Sears outlet last year. It was an open item and came with a 3 year replacement/repair warranty for $660. I missed out on the deal, but I kick myself everyday for passing on that one.

I can never figure out why that is? I think they are driving the price up do to it being a superior tech to what is available currently (minus 3D) or they simply have no clue.

I own 42LE8500 and I'm wondering if it can output AC3 (Dolby Digital) out of digital audio out while playing media files off USB. I'm thinking of sending the digital out of the TV into AV receiver and to the speaker system.

About two weeks ago I noticed one of the zones on the right side roughly mid height of my 55LE8500 was dim. I still get the picture behind it, however every other zone is brighter than this one zone, and it looks like it cant turn the brightness on. Anyone have a recommendation on how to fix this, is there a way to reset the zone within the menu of the tv?

I just wanted to say that 4 years later and this TV is still amazing
I might be noticing some slowdown in the local area dimming. Just my imagination?

Hi all I have owned this tv since the beginning of 2011. It's great. However having an issue. No matter what I do, i cannot reduce the backlight strength. Either via the pic menu the backlight slider from 0-100 does nothing and also via energy saver feature, also does nothing.

I never tried to use previously, but I am now living off the grid with a solar
system, and the energy saving achieved by reducing the backlight would be great. Was banking on it actually.

Any idea, anyone else had this problem, no help from lg here is South Africa, they are useless.

Thanks all.
