This thread seems to be mostly based on the LEX8> which happens to be only available in Korea
> since the Unit I'm looking into purchasing on E-bay is only available in Korea, and is not sold anywhere in north america online or retail. And happens to be the only set in LG's 2011 lineup with the latest 2011 technology (NANO/Local dimming/infinia slim bezel)
* Well, I'm slightly disapointed about the slight 2D backlight bleed on this set, even with local dimming enabled etc. The 3D backlight bleed is henious and awfull cluster**** problem that shouldn't exist with backlit Nano dispersion technology etc.
It's also disappointing to hear that Local Dimming does not work when Gaming or when playing games> which sort of is another major issue, during dark scenes.
My LG scarlet has back-light bleed when viewing from any angle past full front view, basiclaly when it's dark you can see all 4 corners of the panel itself glowing ( when viewing it a any angle)...but the trade off is that NO MOVIE is consistently dark from beginning to end, and Movies are mostly fully lit, this is where IPS technology sparkles, because I can view my set from any sharp angle and the picture's color and detail doesn't blurr ,dimm or fade at all...simply amazing.
The LG 3D set I tested at Best Buy locally is in no way fatiguing as with active shutter nor any observable ghosting, nor is it perceived optically that there is resolution loss at all, IMO impersevable. LG has the better technology than samsung...have you seen the test scores of other TV's compared to any LG TV model? LG's LCD sets practically score better, except for black level contrast.
* The only new set for 2011 from LG is the LX9800. And from what it looks like...the screen is not matt black...but will have to see it up close to finally decide is they've figured out all the issues from their previous sets, if they come out with a larger screen size than 55" then that would be a plus +. But again as an individual the MOST important aspect of any HDTV set is the bezel, if it's glossy black, it's not on my list of purchase. Can you see a salesman trying to sell you a glossy black HDTV?> what does he tell you to convince you to buy, " look how well the bezel reflects you?"
Thats like turning off the TV to avoid clouding or backlight bleed only to have to be annoyed by the reflective surface of the bezel itself?!...I have contemplated masking the bezel on my LG set with adhesive vinyl just to get rid of how glossy and reflective it is.
