how do i change it? I tried messing with the "trumotion" settings but never really saw any difference.

help! thanks!

The 60hz you see in the corner is merely the set telling you the native refresh rate for the content you are viewing, which, in most cases will be 60hz. It is a 240hz set, and so it's constantly running at 240. You can toy with both the trumotion settings and the other advanced options that are available. Also, if you switch the set to "Game" mode, then most of the videoprocessing is removed, which will give you a truer, less jerky picture. I think what you're referring to is artifacts that are the result of the processing/tru motion settings.

I'm debating what to do as well--on the flipside, it is only a $1800 set, so I don't know that ponying up the additional $200 makes sense.

I paid 2k and SquareTRade does have a 20% off which puts it at ~150.

Ive ha so many issues with HDTVs in the past that it seems worth the piece of mind...

That is what I will be doing. I love the TV right now, but I will be quite angry if it shits on me and I am not covered.

Yes, I believe I'll go for some of that. 4 years protection for $140 is pretty solid.

Still amazed at the lack of discussion about this set relative to some other threads. I think it HAS to be considered the Television of the Year for 2012 due to its combination of sensational picture, great 3d, impressive Smart 3d pictures, and sub $2,000 price point.

I've run my own optimized settings and will post them when I get the chance.

I paired the set with the 300W LG 3520 soundbar, set the wireless sub behind my couch, and am running everything through the TV's optical output. Using all 4 HDMI inputs allows me to set the custom settings according to each of my components: Dish Hopper receiver, PS3 (set to Game mode), Roku box, and Apple TV. I love it!!!

HI everybody..i did used the 7600 47' for 20 odd days and then got 8600 from amazon. I ended up spending $100 for dual core and quite happy it does make a difference if you are gonna use smart features of tv more.

About few who see flashlighting/clouding during vudu or input screen i believe that's normal. I had that in 7600 and also little in 8600 but as soon the video starts the picture setting would work and take them away.the real problem is if while playing the video in dark scenes or movie with Letterbox shows that then its issue.

From thread 7600 have use the calibration and quite happy with PQ only thing which i dont like till now is black levels. This is my 1st time with any big tvs since crt hence dont know if all are same..with dark scenes its tough some time to distinguish. if any calibration would help please let me know really love the tv hence dont feel like giving it back just for black levels..

cnet did reviewed and had given excellent reviews..not able to find the link though.Its not the January review if i am not wrong a complete in depth review was dont on April 30th or may 1st week.

Nopes and that's big reason why all companies would cash on this feature.However having said the @ 240hz what it means its tv feature so no matter what is the source the internal feature should refresh it @ 240hz so for example their should not be any motion blur when u see fast moving action scenes.

Sounds good man. I'm thinking about getting this tv or the lm9600. But i'm not sure there are really that much differences between the sets to make up for the higher price.

Hi,

I want to buy LG 55LM8600 but don't want my small children use internet on this TV.
Can I turn off/disable the internet connection or can I block ALL websites using the Parental Control on this TV?

Thank you for your help.

9600 is local dimming which in general term is superior to edge lit. Cnet reviews however of 9600 are not favorable.

yeah I think the 8600 is the sweet spot for the LG 2012 lineup.

The 9600 may be technically better, but not for 1200 more.

And when the 8600 can be had for roughly the same or lower than the 7600, not sure who would go for the 7600 unless not having an all black bezel is a deal breaker

The 8600 has less issues and offers an arguably better picture. When you can get an 8600 for less than $1800, there is no reason whatsoever to spend any more on ANY 55" set. The 9600, at prices in excess of $3k, is simply not worth it.

And I would also argue that the 8600 is superior to the 60" high end, active 3D Samsung model.

The panel is 240hz native. I was referring to the native refresh rate of the underlying content. This is the best set you can buy under. 70 inches right now.

I am also using optical out and wonder if I am getting the full audio signal.(testing will take me awhile) The sound is great, but missing something and it really just may be the fact that my amp/receiver was reset while rearranging my cave.
My sub is large and wired...I am having a hard time finding a good location for it. Right now it is center stage and my center channel is sitting on it(not sure what to do with the c-channel either). My 8600 is wall mounted on a 22" fully articulating arm....freaking awesome, but my kids think it looks strange "hovering out in the air" they say. I have 4 x 25' HDMI cables and a 25' toslink coming. I will running it all through the wall, which is fairly simple. I have full access to the back of the wall via the laundry room(unfinished drywall).
I am considering making a wall mount for a Hardrive, to tuck behind the screen.....but then again with this tv's networking capabilities, I don't really need to.

LOL!! The main critiques: high price point and bad speakers.

WOW. Well, when you can get the 55LM8600 for less than $1800, that's not a high price point, and only a fool would buy a thin flat panel with the expectation that it should sound good--everyone knows you have to get a legit speaker/sub set up for your audio.

This just further confirms my experience--this is the best television on the market right now.

So yesterday I was trying to demo the 3D to some friends, using the 3D App for great examples.....but I had a huge lag/buffer annoyance. So, I plugged and ethernet cable in, thinking it was a wifi issue. The problem did not go away. I wonder if is a problem on the host's end? Too many users maybe?

Alright i've decided. I'm going to go with the 8600 over the 9600. Plus with th extra money i'm saving i can get a nice sound bar.

And i've looked, i've seen some good prices for the tv..but not under 1800. where did you see that price?

Well, TigerDirect ran them first at 1799 free shipping. Then Amazon was pricematching....sometimes charging 50 for shipping. That one ended...then Adorama ran them for 1799.....again, some pricematching....although, not by Amazon.
The deals seem to be done for now. The conspiracy-theorist in me says it was LG trying to get some of these on the market quickly.

Anyway, I think your best best is to put one in your cart at Amazon and watch the price.
