Ouch. I know it's cnet, but I had pretty high hopes for this unit:


Text of the link:

The good: The LG LM9600 series TV is an incredibly striking piece of furniture with one of the slimmest bezels we've ever seen. Color reproduction is excellent, after a bit of tweaking. The Magic Motion controller has its quirks but is the best Smart TV navigator out there. The feature set is excellent, and passive 3D is virtually crosstalk-free.

The bad: The LM9600 doesn't perform up to its flagship TV pricing or the expectations created by its full-array local-dimming backlight. Its black levels are significantly worse than those of last year's LG flagship, it suffers from blotchy uniformity, and in shadow detail it lags behind other high-end sets.

The bottom line: While it's got supermodel looks and pricing to match, the LG LM9600 is unfortunately only an amateur performer.

More HD please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You know some people are subjective. I have a $425.00 Vizio E3D320VX 32" 3D TV with old style CCFL
and all I can tell you is that the Pic Quality is just beautiful in HD and in 3D. So with that said I can't believe
that the LM 9600 is that Bad. I have 5 more months to pay off my 2010 Samsung 46" local dim LED HDTV.
And I'll wait for the LM9600 or newer model later this year.
