Some but not full line up prices and specs

The pricing info below includes listings for the company’s high-end LB7100 and LB7200 Series models, which include TruBlack Control. As noted in our pre-CES coverage of LG’s forthcoming HDTVs, this is a feature that combines local dimming with a High Dynamic Range algorithm to boost contrast. LG states the refresh rate for the LB7100/7200 Series as 240 Hz, though the MCI 960 Motion Clarity feature listed in the company’s specs indicates that additional fancy backlight scanning/processing is going on.

The LB6500 Series is LG’s entry-level, everyman LCD line, with screen sizes ranging from 42 up to 65 inches. No TruBlack Control on these babies, and LG states refresh rate as 120 Hz with “MCI 600 Motion Clarity.” (Not sure what’s happening there, but it’s obviously a step-down from MCI 960 Motion Clarity.)

No word yet on pricing for LG’s other forthcoming LCD HDTV line, the LB6500 Series, which are set apart from the LB6300 sets by the addition of passive 3D.

LB7100/LB7200 Series

55LB7200 (55-inch) $1399.99

60LB7100 (60-inch) $1699.99

Anyone else getting pumped for these 2014's? 

 

The 70" LB7100/7200's look interesting, especially with Local Dimming,, "TrueBlack Control" and LG going the 70" route. I believe they start shipping soon and even may be on the sales floor at major retailers now. 

 

Has anybody seen these yet? Specs look decent + LG quality looks like a winner. I don't think I can wait for the Vizio 70" P Series, and even then, I think they may be a tad over-hyped at this point - only time will tell. Other 70"er's I may want to check out is the Sony W850b, new 70" Vizio M Series and the Sharp's UQ 70"er.

 

But I may pull the trigger on one of these new LG LB7100's if they turn out decent.

LB7100s use IPS panels right? Won't the black levels be affected because of this? I am considering the 60LB7100.

True, they will be IPS from what I've read. 

 

Maybe whatever the TrueBlack Control is tames the panel where you can really tweak the black, not sure. If LG is making this their non-4k high-end display, I would think they're confident in the IPS panel displaying capable black level to sell it above $2,500. Hope so. We shall see.

Got the 42lb6300 for the bedroom. Trumotion de-judder is an awful setting. Leave it alone.

Took a lot of tweaking for the pic to meet my standards. I nearly took it back.

I just noticed tonight that there is a very faint dark line at the top of the screen. It only shows in very bright scenes. Trying to decide if it bothers me enough to take it back.

We've had the 55LB7200 for a week or so, also for the bedroom smile.gif Yep, took me a bit of back and forth to tweak the picture. We noticed faint grey boxes/lines at regular intervals in the background while watching ice hockey - all that white ice in the background. I hadn't even noticed it myself but I asked my wife what differences she saw in this from our main older DLP TV and she noticed the issue. Don't notice it elsewhere unless the background is fairly uniformly very light color and the camera pans - the smudginess stays in place while the picture pans (it's as if the video camera that shot the picture didn't have a clean lens).

Apparently this is not an uncommon "feature" of LED sets. I haven't found a "solution" yet, if any. I tried running one of the old video setup suites (Video Essentials on DVD, I think) and that didn't have any effect. I'm running the set in "Cinema Mode", if I'm remembering the name right, with the various tweaks on the video parameters. I'll have to go looking for that local dimming. There are a lot of video controls hiding in an advanced section.

We still haven't tried out a blu-ray movie - bad! So we haven't really seen the TV in it's best light, pun not intended wink.gif

Bummer. We got ours from Amazon - for a few days they had dropped the price another 200 dollars soon after they became available (and no one had reviewed them) and I couldn't resist! Since we hadn't checked out a blu-ray disc yet, I just had to try one, so literally while you were writing your last response we watched the opening scenes of "Life of Pi", which have lots of different animals, colors, scenes, etc., nicely shot, and it was really beautiful - even mid-day here with light leakage from the window blinds! There was a swimming pool scene where I looked carefully at the left and right sides and I could make out the vertical line smudges in the water, faintly, but you have to be looking for it. Looks beautiful otherwise.

I'll be very interested to see if other people have similar issues. I pray that the "effect" doesn't get worse.

Just got the 42lb6300. Any recommended settings? Turned off the Trumotion.

Sometimes after a second or two, it darkens the picture pretty drastically. What is going on and should I turn that feature off?

Yes turn it off. When u switch to GAME mode there is no judder. Beautiful picture otherwise. Funny I only get some judder on AMC and IFC old movies. I have TWC. Switched out cable boxes didn't help. Different hdmi cable helped a little. LG customer service had no answers.

What is the feature that I should turn off to take away the extreme darkening?

I have my energy saver on low or off. When it's on auto is when it really goes dark.
