Yes you get some picture errors but still way better than the grey soup instead of black.
I think the point the reviewr witness has not been understood?
For sure, you need local dimming, this is good feature!
But I wish no to rely on this.
Why? Well.. Here's why...
Local Dimming in not available in PC mode.
Local Dimming is not available in Game Mode and if you game in a other mode Local Dimming adds additional lag up to (80-120ms) according to LG Korea review.
Therefore when using as PC Mode, gives you the milky blacks and clouding.
Therefore when using games Mode, gives you the milky blacks and clouding.
We have these available in our region now, I was going to buy, but as this mean I can no game, can no use as pc monitor etc I decide this is not good.
You will see what I see when you test in shop. We have tested and seen actual result and it not good for pc or game mode.
Also, review above say that banding still a major issue and LG are now going back to drawing board to redesign the 3d FPr meaning this tv will no be compatible with next lg tv as FPR and glasses and 3D tech will be completely change.
Here are quotes from review above:
According to what we've learned from an LG spokesman, the South Korean engineers have also gone back to the drawing board to improve on their FPR's (Film Patterned Retarder) 3D performance after receiving feedback from multiple sources about the unmistakable vertical banding issue which we've discovered as well. More on this later...
From LM9600 review link posted above:
As noted on the LW6500, vertical banding issue persists when the screen is viewed at a meter or less. Another minor gripe we have is the relatively tight vertical viewing angles. For example, crosstalk or split images are apparent when we stood up to view the TV.
Sorry fro my broken English.
In short, the review says exactly these thing:
Banding = Yes
Lag = Yes
Clouding = Yes
Light bleed = Yes
Crushed greys when LD on = Yes
Poor 3D viewing angle = Yes Verticle
Too expensive = Yes
This review has many negatives for sure.
What do you mean LD is always on with Brightness above 50 of new LG tv?
