So I just bought one of these to replace a 6 year old 720p Panny plasma. Got the 60" model. Used to not think much of LG, but the salesman really talked them up and the price was really good for 60", 3d, smart, etc. Hope it lives up to my expectations. I know that everyone on here really nit picks (that's why it's the AVS forum) performance and I'm sure compared to $3000 models, it is probably not as good. My guess is that it will blow my old 720p out of the water. I like the glossy screen actually. Not much of a concern to me as mine will be in a light controlled environment. Liked it better than the matte screen on the 9700 next to it. I actually wanted the 9700, but couldn't justify the extra $500 for it as we bought new living room furniture and a tv stand at the same time.
Gets delivered on Wednesday so we shall see then.
