Just wanted to chime in (first post) about this model. I too was looking at the LG 7600. I'm a Samsung fan - coming from a Samsung DLP, but my wife loves the LG we have in our bedroom. We went out last Saturday to check out the LG at Best Buy, which she was fine with. Afterwards we went to Magnolia to see if they had the LG as well. They didn't but the salesman started showing me the 7003, which intrigued me. Apparently it was a new model that he could not sell until the next day. Seemed to offer a little more and the price was right at our limit. The only problem I had was that I could not find any info/review of this TV. It really drove me crazy that I could not research this model. Given that, we went ahead and purchased it anyway - the next day.
Completely satisfied with the picture quality - though still working on the settings. The SmartHub seems to be a source of frustration. Anytime I want to watch NetFlix I have to re-establish the wifi connection. I've called a couple of times and that's basically what ends up being done. Have not been able to watch a complete show on Hulu - keeps freezing. I'm confident this will be sorted out. Thought that getting the Dual Core Processor would eliminate this problem - one of the selling points over the LG. The 3D is fine, though I'm not really into 3D, but my kids are stoked. The 2D to 3D is pretty cool, but don't see myself really using it that much.
I'm very happy with the purchase. However if it's a toss up and price is a factor, we did find the LG 55 7600 at Frys for $1299.
