Ok, after a few days with my 60pk550, some thoughts:
--i have played some Xbox 360 (Bioshock2, Rock Band 2) with no problems with lag or IR. The games look great and play just like they did on any other tv i have used it with.
--i have not seen any IR at all.
--if i use the break in slides i can see not exactly bands, but sort of clouds on some colors. Totally invisible in the real world. And, if it shows a white screen, no clouds, but an audible buzzing. IF any sound is on, buzzing cannot be heard
--the picture quality is great, in comparison with a 4 year old panny plasma and a 1 month old vizio vf550m lcd, which had gorgeous colors but hideous motion issues.
--blacks are excellent, but what do i know?
--i wish someone would post some suggested settings. there are a lot of options, and i frankly found the "picture wizard" to suck--pic looked both dim and too colorful. I'd love to hear what others are doing with color temp and the individual color adjustment options.
--i ordered from amazon, and the experience was painless and the price good.
--the set's styling, fwiw, is sleek and looks fantastic mounted on our bedroom wall
Overall: for the price, a wonderful tv. Once fully broken in, i will dial up contrast etc. My installer guy shook his head in wonder when i told him the purchase price. He sees hundreds of tv's and he thought it was a steal.
I'm using this with a DTV HR-22. Can anyone tell me how to set the tv/box so that a 4:3 image is ALWAYS gray bars on the side? If i toy with the LG's ratio button, i get a gray bar bracketing a narrowed image with other black bars. I have the dtv box set to "native", and gray bars, but it doesnt seem to work.
thanks to all!
