For everyone on here thinking the LEX8 is the next best thing since sliced bread...
It has a design flaw. The bezel is so slim that in 3D mode it has massive edge light leakage problems.
In 2D the picture is excellent but does have horizontal and vertical banding issues. I'm not picky like most of the others on here either, so some might find the picture worse than I did. There is blooming.
In 3D mode it's so bad that it is unwatchable. Here are some pics. One is from my first set. It was worse on the first set, but the second set still had the issue.
As you can see the bottom of the screen is terrible. The LG tech guy comes over (I live in Korea) and says that it happens with LEX8's (because the slim bezel) and can't be fixed. In order to return something in Korea (you guys are lucky back home. You have 30 days no questions asked. Here...well listen) there has to be a "problem" with the set. The LG tech guy comes to visit and then he will report to the company that the set is defective and then they will return it. However, he says that there is no problem and that i can't return it. He says it's normal (yeah, welcome to Korea). It's common here sometimes to have people try to pull the wool over you eyes. I complained to the store I bought it from and they decided to exchange it for me (reluctantly).
I'm getting the Passive 55LW5700 today. It looks amazing in 3D, plus larger size for the same price. However I am sacrificing picture quality. I like the fact that there was no flashlighting (in 2D) on the LEX8. I'm sure it will be present on the 5700. I believe the 5700 is the Korean model and it is 240hz.
The LEX8 is the sexiest TV I have ever seen, but in 3D (plus the ghosting is terrible as well and the glasses are uncomfortable and terrible too) it's truely awful. Also, in 2D there was still som faint light leakage problems in the corners of the screen. Once again i believe the slim bezel causes this.
Hope this helps.
So much to more say but I hate typing and this took me an hour.
