Pros:
Great image, as far as you're able to calibrate it.
Great passive 3D.
Fairly decent built-in apps.

Cons:
Takes a long time to boot up, during which you can't even change the input on the TV.
Won't switch to an input that it doesn't find a signal on, so you always have to turn on your Xbox, PS3, satellite receiver, etc. before you can switch to the input. This makes using a universal remote like my Logitech Harmony difficult. So dumb.
Sometimes it says it's on a particular input when it isn't. This can only be corrected by changing the input to something else and changing it back.
Mandatory firmware update killed the only use I had for the built-in Google TV: Flash video playback.
Brightness fluctuations between light and dark scenes in TV and movies even with all dynamic lighting, eco, and local dimming features turned off.

But as I said, last night it finally died. I was playing an Xbox 360 game with my son when suddenly the screen froze, and a grey "wind" swept from the right side of the screen to the left until the entire image was grey. Now that's all I get when I turn it on. LG says they won't send a technician to my house because I don't live in a large metropolitan area. Even though I paid $1600 for this thing just 14 months ago, I'm almost relieved that I have an excuse to replace it.
Damn! That's crazy! Sorry to hear your troubles. LG keeps sending me letters to buy their 3 year service plan. I've almost had my tv for a year, maybe I should buy it now that I know you're having issues with it. But from when you wrote it sounds like you were having issues for a while? I haven't had any with mine and my family and I watch it every day.
