Hello everyone,

I'm a first time buyer so please help me, trying to make best decision. I have been looking at the Samsung UN60ES6500 tv but today came across this LG 60LM7200 television which boosts much better specs!

However, I can only find information on it at best buy and no internet or consumer reviews? Can anyone chime in!?

Thanks!

LG just put a product information page up on it.

http://www.lg.com/us/tvs/lg-60LM7200-led-tv

spec-wise, it appears identical from the page...Trumotion 240, LED Plus, Passive 3D Smart TV.

I haven't seen one on display but I crakced open a boxed unit and it would appears the LM7200 is about twice as thick as the 7600, and the bezel is raised from the panel...it's not a single pane/piece like the 7600. I don't think LG makes 60" IPS panels, so the panel is likely not an LG panel.

ht Panasonic TC-P60ZT60, Monitor Audio: Silver RX6, RX Centre, Radius 90HD; Martinlogan Dynamo 700, Marantz SR5006, PS3, Oppo BDP-103D
2ch Marantz PM8004, Sony BDP-S1000ES, JVC T-X3 tuner, Monitor Audio Silver RX1, REL T3, Apple TV, Peachtree Audio DAC•iT
lr Panasonic 50ST60, Sony BDP-S5100

A) I just got one so stand by for a review
B) LG rep was in-store so I asked her about performance...she said should be near identical to 55" 7600series.
C) I asked why 7200 model number and she explained it had to do with the panel specs...how they keep them organized...she said not as big a difference as 7600 to 8700...
D) also said we won't see a price break until February, 13.

Hope this helps!
I'll edit/update with a linked review once it goes thru the paces.

Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you!

I am in the same boat as the OP. I was going to buy the 60LM7600 after weeks of research and now it is gone from almost all websites for purchase. I personally wanted the thinner panel instead.

I would hate to buy an inferior 7200 series tv for the same price as the 7600.

Anyone know anything about pricing on this 7200 or better yet where I can find a 7600 anymore since best buy has removed it from their site?

Hey ATL,

I just bought it last night from Best Buy and will be picking it up on Wednesday...They said it was new product, came in end of Sept as did LG when I spoke to them...however as of this morning, it can no long er be found on the Best Buy Website but LG assures me it is a new product and the SPECS look GREAT for the price

also LG said it will be comparable to the 7600 level of performance....so I want to learn more and feel a little scared of why it is not on Best Buy's website as of this morning??

I have to pick it up on Wed, will let you know details.

I would call Best Buy, that is how I ordered mine ($1699), but then again when I ordered last night, it was still on their website. I went to a store yesterday and they were expecting to get more next week but not sure why the website took it down??

Let me know what you find out and how the 7200 performs.

I am very curious if I should just go with the 7200 or find another LED set.

I'm going to keep my eye out on the best buy site to see if it comes back up.

how does it compare in overall thickness to the 7600? Also does it get a lot of the flash lighting the 7600 was getting?

Ok.....what made you choose this model over others in the same price range? Also how is screen brightness, clarity, and any lag in images? Do you game with it? 3d movies? Streaming movies?

How are the apps and the web browsing with it?

Thanks so much for answering questions! Do you have any pictures?

For the price, it seems to have so many features that other high end TVs have. What are your favorite aspects of the TV and any faults it may have?

Also where did you buy from?

I just took some pics to show the panel depth, I'll try using the Image insert feature of this forum, but if it doesn't work, I'll link to my Picasa or Flikr. I LOVE the smart features and internet browsing, I already have a Sony Google TV but this one I actually use the Web and Apps because the Magic remote makes everything easy and PC like, the Google TV was horrible with the Web.

The picture is amazing, but sadly being that my other HDTV is a 32 inch (the afformentioned Sony NSX-32GT1,) I really don't have anything to compare it to. My future borther-in-law recently bought a Samsung 60 inch (UN60ES6100FXZA, at BB for $1800) and I think mine is better in picture and sound.

To answer your last question, I bought it from BestBuy. My local store had them in stock!

Ok, honestly, while researching I couldn't find a 60 inch TV with a 240hz refresh-rate for $1700. The LM72 was better than anything else this size for this kind of money, it felt perfect, almost too good to be true until I unboxed it and fired it up.

Also, just started messing around with LG Cloud, and while I think some improvements could be made in the software, the service is awesome

.

Main panel is 1 inch thick, and the speakers make that 2.5 inches only where the speakers are located. I can provide better pics, just let me know.

Cheers

Also, screen brightness is great, I haven't had a chance to do more calibrating but I know right off the bat that the energy saving feature makes everything too dark, I stopped using it after one day. There's no lag whatsoever and the images are crystal clear.

I don't do much gaming, but may get an Xbox 360 or PS3 in the future, I haven't played video games since Socom 3 came out, so long time age.

As for the 3d, I watched Avengers and wasn't really blown away, however, I'm not a fan of 3D anyway, so that wasn't a selling point for me. As stated earlier, web was great, but there really aren't that many apps available. If apps are your main thing, this isn't the TV for you, or I don't know how to find them.

It does have Google Maps built in, they look stupid on this size of set, love it.

No, I don't have external audio yet, looking to mount this thing on the wall next week, then I'll see what the best solution would be for my living room.

I too seen it and thought it was to go to be true but this TV is awesome. Bought it last Thursday and was trying to figure out why Best Buy had taken it off their website. Had a 50 inch Samsung but this is way better, my Brother in Law has the 55 inch LG and this BLOWS it away he wont admit it but it does.

No problem, I'm happy to contribute some help. I picked mine up in a minivan, and it fit just fine with the seats folded. The box is huge, my best recommendation would be to keep it upright (the way it would stand on the stand,) then you just have to worry about your SUV being long enough to accommodate the horizontal dimension.

I also bought one last Thursday from BB. Love it so far, dual play is awesome. 3d is good, I wish the remote had an input button, and I haven't found the direct tv remote code yet. The picture is great, and I haven't noticed too much light bleed.

Thanks, I recently bought 55LM7600 from BB and still wondering if I should get this one. LG site says the thickness is 1.7" but your bottom photos show over 2" (almost 3" for the speakers). Am I reading it right? The specs on LG site not reliable, can't believe the stand weighs 24 lbs.

BTW, is the bezel flush with the screen? Other than WiFi display, Windows 7 certification and jacked up dynamic contrast ratio (all of these are useless for me) I can't see any difference in specs.
