Coming from a smaller sammy LCD and a Hitachi 51 RPTV CRT(Xbox on that)
Flopped between Vizio 554, Sammy D6400, Sony EX... and this
Got a combo LG 670 and this for a great price (less than the 554 alone at any store)
Wanted at least some local dimming, matte, DLNA and good gaming....3D not super big deal...however I did not like active so was happy with LGs demo in case I do get a few kid movies etc... having 4 glasses added to the value since I would have bought at least 2 of active for others....
670 is soooo much faster than the insignia Bluray I had it's silly.. I knew that one sucked but the LG is great. I am sure there are others but at least it was tossed in with the TV.
Love the matte screen. Blown away by the quality of the picture(almost fake looking)... Inception on B-R looked like it was video-taped...thoughts?
I hope that changing a few settings will get it looking more like a movie than a digital video cam.
Really like the wii type remote... actually is nice to use. Want to try ipod app.
Internet apps are great - of course you can get it with any disc player or xbox etc now adays..but like the look at interface...likethe PiP on the app screen how you can change stuff and still see the active input.
DLNA..I installed Nero on win 7 PC. No issues finding it etc. Seems SLOW..loading even 4MB pic.... (wired..no network issues) BUFFERING on movies from my HD streams.. not sure what is up. Shows about 2 seconds...then buffers... etc etc. Need to play with other formats etc..
I have the older Xbox without HDMI... so XBOX via component (720 or 1080 i or p......)... even with TV in gaming mode.. sucks. I have been playing with a CRT RPTV..and this is really noticable.. you move the stick and shoot and it 'seems' like everything is ok.. but when you play you just get the feeling that something is not right. Also through maybe I would get a wired controller...just to help by 1ms.. I know the input lag is the issue but figured may help
Wii seemed aok... maybe just not a big deal since it's a +- system already.
Just tried bowling and wakeboarding and didn't seem different.
I am heading at lunch to get a XBOX VGA adaptor.. hoping that will lower issues a bit more... thoughts?
