I just bought a 42LE5300 and need some input from current owners of either the 5300 or 5400 seeing as there so close. It's a great tv but I do have a couple issues. I use it for a PC monitor/Gaming. It's connected via HDMI, Input on the TV is set to PC.
1. The reds are very dark out of this, I tried setting different colour temperatures, tint, etc. But compared to my samsung monitor it's night and day. A great example is MSN messenger or any red font you select is usually that brighter red, but on the LG panel it's very dark, almost maroon. Has someone done any colour tests to see if it produces them properly?
2. There seems to be a good amount of back light bleeding from the panel that is noticeable at night and on dark game images/movies. I would expect some to be normal but when does it become too much and should be looked at? Some corners shed more light then others.
3. Curious here but read a lot about the different panel you can get one being ISP? what is the main advantage or disadvantage of this? and is there a way to tell by serial number or on the box before you open it up?
