I'd like to start some dialogue for people who have purchased or are purchasing the LN57 series from LG.
I bought the 47LN5750 which is basically the core LN5700 but includes the magic remote. I am coming over to LED from the plasma world and this television is a pretty good one thus far.
Panel quality seems pretty good. There is very mild light leakage in one corner of my unit and some mild clouding but nothing that would be characterized as problematic.
One strange thing I noted is that in comparing two identical models of the 47LN5750 with exact same settings on both (television settings completely reset and compared to be the same and with automatic eco backlight dimming off), is that the colour temperature was different on the two panels. One had a very white white and the other had a reddish hue. I took the white white, but I suppose the reddish hued one can be corrected via calibration.
Sound from the built-in speakers is quite good from a casual viewer/listener standpoint. Setting aside audio fidelity, if it's just loudness that is a factor when considering the built-in versus external, the built-in do the trick.
But impressions aside, the reason I started this thread is to discuss calibration settings. And to learn what other people are doing with picture settings that relate to motion blur and de-judder.
I've spent very little time watching this television (and LED/LCD in general) as I've had plasmas for years. Having now watched this TV for maybe a couple of hours maximum, I have no complaint about the picture quality of this TV but being new to the motion blur/judder type stuff, I'm definitely noticing a different quality in on-screen movement and hoping that correctly working the picture settings will minimize this. (Or maybe LED viewers just get used to the different experience?)
Anyway. Looking forward to any questions, comments and calibration settings/ideas.
