Is the 6500 really has better contrast ratio than the 5600 or just in paper for marketing purpose?

Can't wait to get more ps3 gamer reviews on this set so to compare to the 5600. To determine if the extra 240hz is worth it.

I'm highly interested, but haven't seen it for sale other than pre-order. I would honestly like to see it in person too, before buying online.

I have a 55lw6500 coming on Friday...hopefully after some tweaking, I will give a review. I went with the passive over active because I got a major headache after watching a movie on my brothers Samsung 7000. Hopefully this won't happen using passive glasses.

I really wanted to love 3D but after watching 22 hours straight on the samsung 55900 my left eye muscle contracted- Very painful.THE OPTIGRAB EFFECT!

I have switched to passive vizio 65 and have temporarily LG55500 and LG C3F projector...

Love it! Watched 300 blu-ray Teranex conversions back to back, my eyes never felt better.

NEVER AGAIN will I get caught with them propeller glasses.

I went to the store and I did take a good look at this TV.
They had several 3D glasses and 3D content was on it.

I myself have a 3D TV with active shutterglasses and wanted to know what is best.

The LG was very disappointing in 3D in comparison to my Philips.

First there are the visible black lines in 3D mode. Very noticable even at greater distance. It's just no HD quality anymore.

Second there was ghosting ! I had to bend my knees so my eyes were in the center of the screen. But even then the edges had ghosting. Looking at it from side or if I went to much down or up, ghosting appeared also in the center of the screen.

My Philips also have some ghosting, but that is fixable by tuning the glasses.
With the LG you just have to live with it.

I've wondered the same thing. I see no difference between the 6500 series and 5600 series that would lead me to think that the contrast ratio should be different between the two.

With the great sales pricing on the 5600's I don't think many are buying this set. I mean is the 240hz really worth the price increase... prob not.

Hopefully they'll be sales on this tv next after the 5600's to help push them out the door.

Id be buying it if they could get the 65"s out the door. I feel like LG thinks everyone wants either a 47 or 55 regardless of the series. Im really surprised that it is even only rumored for the top end 9500s. I'd even be game for a 70"+ passive 3D if they got it together.

65"s are available at vanns. $1800 difference from the 55" seems a bit ridiculous though.

Yikes, Amazon's site went from saying "usually ships in 3 to 5 weeks" to "usually ships in 1 to 2 months" in regards to the 65LW6500.

Does anyone have this 65" set? I been following this set on amazon. Is there a demand for this? I want this set, but I need to make sure it is a good buy. The wife is not too pleased with me wanting a $4k plus set. I am convinced that I want a passive set for my family.

With the 55" version selling for as low as $1199 recently, it does seem like a lot of extra money for ten inches.

Im definitely going to consider buying this, especially as it is one of two of the largest passive sets available. The Vizio's 2D just didn't do it for me. The Vizio also lacks 2D to 3D conversion and 240Hz. If the LG can come down about $500 I'll bite.

Well, most of the new sets from Vizio have not been released yet, and while they do lack 2D to 3D conversion (from what I understand), the majority of sets they have planned are 240Hz or higher. They have some sets advertised at 480Hz.

Do a search on 2011 Vizio TV lineup and you should be able to find a listing of upcoming TV's and their specs.

What is frustrating me with them is that we have no idea when they will release these TV's. I am in the market now and may just pass on them because they will not announce when they will be released.

I am seriously considering the 55LW6500 because I'm tired of waiting for the Vizio lineup.

Yeah, I have nothing against Vizio. In fact, I have a 52" GV52LF from about 4yrs ago. I was just saying the current passive 3D 65" they have out is a little underwhelming. I'm all for any new passive set in the 65"+ range regardless of the manufacturer. Like you, I'm ready for an upgrade NOW

I'm thinking about buying a 47" LW6500 or LW5600. I pretty much want it for PS3 games. Maybe 3D movies in the future. I want to know, does the 240hz justify the price difference, will this make a difference when gaming. I currently watch a Samsung 40" LED UN40C5000, I couldn't be any happier with it. My other question is about the viewing distance. If I lay in bed while watching, I'm about 7' away. If I sit up I will only be 5' away. This is why I bought the 40" Sansung. Will the 47" LG 3D look alright at these distance? I would buy a smaller LG but they don't have one yet.

Vizio Live Chat told me yesterday that their best guess for a release of the Vizio XVT3D556SP would be "holidays, 4th quarter" !!!!!!!!

I got the 42" (LW6500) in New Zealand about a week ago, they had been shipped in a week before. 4 pairs of glasses came in the box and I had 3 pairs from the movies - this is the biggest selling point for me and a lot of New Zealanders as our incomes do not match USA. I have watched a few 3D bluray via the PS3 and some downloaded 3D content from YouTube and we love it.

I have one complaint and that the flash player version is 9.x whereas to play youtube, version 10.x is required. I want to use YouTube via the browser and not the SmartTV YouTube LeanBack App as it does not allow the ability to login to load my playlist.

Of course I could just connect my PC to it and stream my YouTube music vids - but the point of getting a TV like this is to reduce the amount of crap connected to it.

Great Tv however, that comes with 2 year warranty.

That's frustrating. Ugh!

Well as far as the LW6500, has anyone here played XBOX or PS3 on it? I have read in the LCD panels forum that the LW5600 has pretty serious game lag. I was hoping that the LW6500 might be better in this regard. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks.

I have a PS3 hooked in my LW6500 and waiting for PSN to become available to download WipeoutHD that is in 3D - soon as I know I will let people know. However I had a quick go on the latest Killzone demo and used the 2D to 3D converter and it was good. I will play the demo with my son soon and let you know.

The picture out of the box is a torch...after running picture wizard it looks punchy, bright and at night black levels are good to excellent, Everything I was worried about is a none factor. Passive is the bomb. I could never go with active after watching back to back movies, sports with passive. I never tired of the passive, whereas I couldn't watch more than 1 movie with the active glasses. The 3d picture with passive is really impressive. Knock your socks off good. The 55LW6500 is a keeper.

Someone on a forum said not do spend to much time thinking and getting stressed over buying an TV, it's better to buy on an enjoy it rather than sitting around worrying about which one to buy. I also figured, if I want a different one in the future, I can just put this on in a differenet room and buy a new one.
I just bought the 47" LW5600 on Amazon. From most of the reviews I've read, 240hz is just not worth the extra few hundred dollars.
I will arrive on May 31. I will let you know what I think of it then.

That's good news, I'm glad to hear some real positive feedback, mine gets here tomorrow, and I've got about 30 hours of 3d content so I'll get back to you guys next week, lol
