Hello all, I bought this TV new from Sears for $599, It was a Redtag Clearance item. I had to do a little legwork getting this purchase, they were all out at the store and the closest one in stock was In Downtown Houston, which by the way closes at 7pm?! my wife and I are in Humble and it was already 5 pm.
I was<< very excited about getting this TV to upgrade older 2008 Toshiba Regza 42" LCD.
Main reason getting this TV was for gaming PS3 BLACK OPS and for 3D movies.
Since getting this TV I have been going thru the 5 stages of Grief:
Denial: I can't believe I wasted my money on the wrong TV.
Anger: Damn Damn Damn..where's my punch bowl?
Bargaining: Well maybe if hadn't already thrown away the box and mounted it to the wall I could return it, or then again maybe I can get those colors to come in right.?
Depression: Almost...almost, so close.. just my luck...."We seem to be made to suffer, it's our lot in life."
Acceptance: It's not too bad..I still got a good deal on a reasonably up to date, low energy consumption 47" LED TV with 3D for $600 but again it's not what I was expecting.
I have a Vizio 32" smart TV with 3D and I will tell it's just as good if not better and the ol' 5 year old Toshiba has better color.
There's horrible glare on the LG.
You can't adjust settings while you are on PS3, so u have to input HDMI back and forth from adjusting colors on one screen only to see there not right on another..and yes u get the annoying Do u want to turn on 3d now, put ur glasses on and sit 2 meters away notice.
The Tv speakers break up and loud sounds distort on a volume level of any more than a setting of 25.
The game setting is slippery; scrolling and sliding crosshairs with uneven transitions,gameplay is better on any setting but.
The 3.40 update doesn't seem to do anything. ---Damn : (
There's a certain amount of fuzziness that just won't be adjusted away. (Is it the special 3d film on the screen I have read about?)
The colors on the factory settings lack vibrance and depth, no matter how much adjustment they just don't come out right...I have been messing with the settings for about a week and half. As one reviewer wrote on another forum, " The factory settings lack color and you end up jacking up the color only to have brights bleed out on to the screen.." Don't get me wrong u can get color depth but the clarity obscures and u end up going in circles adjusting....I may be a little ocd but come on : ( We're all kicking ourselves in the butt trying to convince ourselves we can adjust it but in the end we know ...this relationship is going no where fast.....It's not me it's you LG47LM4600
Say again what's the definition of Insanity? Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
Bottom line I wouldn't buy this TV again nor recommend it to a friend.I am disappointed and have an unfavorable view of LG products from now on....ya hear me LG corp?
