I'm quite happy with my TV. I had a Panasonic AS660 (a Canadian model), and this LG is definitely better! The global dimming issue is about all I can complain about. Even off-axis viewing is still pretty good (though a bit worse than an IPS display obviously)

Yes, I'm trying to weed out (uncover) these hidden gems in the LG lineup, not all 50" are VA either but 39" are ... (the major electronics store in town has zero 50" LG's on display)

The "CC" part of the code is the intended market or something so Canada for yours I guess and there must be something else on the USA sets then.

So which is better? IPS or M-VA?

For watching in the dark, definitely VA type of panels (hence the 'hidden gems' as most LG's are of course IPS) but with some ambient lighting behind an IPS model the poor blacks are a lot less noticeable I've noticed on some Philips IPS model with Ambilight on/off.

I think LG should stop using IPS. I mean who the hell wants to view a tv from its side anyways? VA is good enough for slight off angle viewing. I'd rather have awesome contrast even if the wide viewing angle isn't the best. I have the lb5800, and since it has an IPS, it has gotten poor contrast ratings, even though it isn't terrible per se, but it's still limited in potential picture quality.

When it comes to PC displays, professional photographers and such are much better served by an IPS display for their overall color accuracy and gamut. These people also use such displays in much more ambient light than we often do when watching movies or TV, so the lower contrast ratio isn't as much of an issue. Even on a laptop or tablet, it's very helpful since you aren't always looking straight at it.

For a TV though, I do agree IPS isn't the big selling point LG wants you to think it is

If playing video games, setting dejudder to 10 is good for games with stable frame rates, I say stable frame rate, because if the game dips in frames TruMotion will not work well and it may cause it to be even worse. So for example the smooth parts in gta 5 will look super smooth, but when the game frame rate dips, the TruMotion seems to have jerkiness and stuttery motion and doesn't interpolate frames in those scenes or areas.

IPS on smaller screens though doesn't seem to be too much of an issue with contrast.

They are only the nr.1 manufacturer of IPS panels and pretty much every IPS tv these days uses an LG panel so it would be pretty much unthinkable for them to give it up. Maybe they should work on local dimming on more models instead ...
But the local consumer interests organisation also regularly tests televisions and they measure the angle at which the contrast has halved, I guess somewhat similar to the tests on Rtings: http://www.rtings.com/info/viewing-angle-tvs
You could stand to reason that at the angle the IPS models have halved in contrast, the VA might even have worse contrast at that point and certainly the colors will be washed out. As a general purpose living room tv I could see myself picking up an IPS model at some point, lying on the couch at 35-45 degree angle often enough . But with a Samsung (s-pva) panel still pretty good viewing angle ... the 2014 H models primarily use their newer psa type panels.

On the IPS note: just read Panasonic is ditching IPS panels on their 2015 models in Europe .

For watching broadcast TV, should I just leave Trumotion disabled, or is there a custom dejudder setting which is good?

Depends on how you like to view your content. There's two presets, "Smooth" and "Clear, plus a separate "User" adjustment. I will say Clear is the best setting, because the way it forms the picture on the screen is just magical, everything seems like a remaster. Smooth on the other hand makes the image appear softer and only smooths things out with little movement, but will look less smooth when things are starting to go fast, same with clear setting, but the clear setting seems to have more aggressive interpolation with higher clarity picture. The User dejudder setting has no real effect until you bring it up to like 7 or 8, at least that's how it seems on my screen. I notice that putting dejudder to the highest level will make you lose image quality, while setting the dejudder bar down a little will improve clarity of the picture. Dejudder and the rest of the presets seem to perform differently from each other, but I just leave mine on Clear, because it's like the best of both worlds. I suggest just playing around with it and see which one you like best.

Setting gamma to 2.4 helps the black level it seems.

2 questions

4.51.X is out in Germany for WebOS update. I am on 3.23.X. Is it safe to upgrade in US. TV is LG 47LB6500

Is it worthwhile to get new LG 65LB7100 for 1000 dollars or should I wait and go for 4K sometime later.

I have a question. I was going to buy a TV and this sale for this was over before i acted on this one
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/samsung-...&skuId=4323036
they had it for $999. I really wanted it but i have to wait till it goes on sale again.
Now this weeks BB ad has this one LG http://www.bestbuy.com/site/lg-60-cl...&skuId=3734021
same price as the samsung i wanted above that was on sale, and 5" bigger at 60". But now i come here and i read people complaint about that global dimming? Now it has me thinking if i should go for it or not or just wait for samsung. My current TV is this one http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...1080p_LCD.html
for a couple years and love the picture on it and never had 1 problem with it, I just love samsung. LG is prob the brand i would go after samsung, so what should i do? go for the LG or wait till the samsung i want goes back on sale at $999?

Question:

Purchased an LG 55LB6300 recently. Would like to optimize the picture setting. I have HDMI set to PC and Picture Mode to Game. Mostly game, but also use for HT.

Found some setting here:
http://reviews.lcdtvbuyingguide.com/...-settings.html

Can anyone provide instruction links on how to accomplish this setup??? I read through some of the thread and could not locate it. Much obliged.

Has anyone wall-mounted an LG 60LB6300? I am wondering what wall-mounting bracket you used, and if you had any issues with it.

I mounted a 55" LG LB6300 using a realtively cheap mount from amazon.com.

Worked like a charm. Solid and took me 30 mins to mount it. Need studs though.

Thinking about the LG 70lb7100 can anyone comment about any issues with motion blur while watching football? How does the picture quality compared to a Samsung un65h6350 or un65h7150?

I've seen both. Depends on the room lighting to be honest. My feeling is that motion blur and input lag are over-rated issues with modern LCDs HDTVs. Most have more than sufficient quality.

This site is great for rating TVs:
http://www.rtings.com/reviews/tv/lcd-led/samsung

I bought the LG 55LB6300 because I got it new in open box with warranty for $500 OTD. Otherwise, I would've bought the Samsung 6350 due to the superior quality picture and contrast. Both are superb HDTVs, but if you have a bright room then the LG is not for you. The screen is very reflective. Mine is in my man cave so an non-issue.
