...which is why I ordered the 42LH50
(amz:782) earlier this week, vs the 42LH40 (amz:766~782) ..having totally missed the 2009.11.26 42LH40 (amz:598).
Because my old DVD player lacks upconverting, I'd also ordered the Panasonic BD60 blu-ray (for its PQ performance with standard DVDs), instead of the LG BD370, because I was put off by the many user comments about abysmal
LG customer service regarding BD370 issues [off-topic here: sorry]. I hope LG 'service' is accessible/responsive/etc on their TV
s! Are they?
The BD60 (VieraCast/Amz.video) lacks LG's Netflix/YouTube access, so I figure the xxLH50 complements it, if/when I get into the network angle.
I'm a "shadow details" person, and my viewing positions are typically off-axis
, so I'll find out soon enough if the xxLH40/50 is acceptable, or not. The Picture Wizard feature is really attractive (why don't all brands have that?!). Had to purchase online just to learn more, since AFAIK, no retailers in MSP stock xxLH40/50. Odd.]
