For many people complaining about the 3D, it's because the TV is too high and/or they're sitting too close. Yours is positioned perfectly for 3D. I do wish we could sit closer to get a more...

I have the 79" LG. The Samsung has better PQ due to greater contrast and black levels. The LG's colors and non-dark scenes are exceptional IMO and every bit as good as the Samsung. But, there's no...

8 feet distance plus the TV sitting lower than eyes in the middle of the screen will definitely make the ghosting more noticeable. Go 10' back with eyes in the middle of the screen and ghosting is...

The 3D on my 79UB9800 isn't perfect, but it's very good and watchable. I do have to be at eye level or sit about 9 feet back to minimize crosstalk. At about 5' away, crosstalk is noticeable and 3D...

I have the latest firmware. Input lag still not very good. I'm a very casual gamer and I have decided I will not game on this TV because I can't get used to the lag.

That's pretty extreme. My TV does not look like that when I watch in a lit or totally dark room. There is some haloing that is somewhat noticeable but not nearly as noticeable as in your pictures. ...

After having lived with the 79UB9800 for about a month and a half, I like the TV even more than before. I also recently figured out that I had my brightness set too high at 61. It was based on the...

Hi DJ. If your screen doesn't look dark grey when off, but more black, then you probably have a current panel. More importantly, do you like the picture quality of your TV? Are you having any...

Depends. The size and resolution are very compelling. As I indicated earlier, I'm coming from a 60" Pioneer Kuro, which is an excellent TV. I'm not disappointed with my 79UB9800 but, then again, I...

I am at 10.5' from my 79ub9800. If I sit with my eyes in the middle of the screen, the 3D is fine with no crosstalk. If I sit at about 5', the crosstalk is noticeable regardless of how high or low...

Thanks S&V. Appreciate the info on the Sony. I was thinking since the LG you adjusted shares the same panel as the Sony 900 series, if there's hope for the LG, perhaps the 79X900's black levels...
