I already sent the word out weeks ago. Nony told me to forget it and stick to LHX. So..........now I wait. It does look like a cool set, though.

Slick:
I will try your settings later, as my previous posts before, I think changing any white balance settings is getting way too technical, as just using Konnica's previous settings ( whith-out changing my white balance values since I did not have a service remote ) I had these changed in THX mode, and it looks about as good as I could ever want, the detail is outstanding, I know some like to calibrate down to a ant's nut, when you make such little impecable changes, it takes time for your eyes to adjust, as well as the panel even takes time to adjust as well, I notice my set takes time to warm up, and I'm wondering if this will even change over time.

That's not the point. User reviews are meant for users who have conducted "real" reviews to post them. I would prefer that CNET leaves your posts intact for all the world to see. I don't see how anyone could approve of your actions. There is no way that LG would have suggested that these two units had similar performance characteristics and you were certainly not acting as agent for LG.

I remember Nony posting some info on the zones of the 7700 were not going to be close to the LHX, so the 7700 could not even come close to the LHX, I was talking about returning my LHX to LG for a 7700, but I got a panel replacement and my set is better than it was, so I kept my LHX, and glad I did...

If your on the fence on the LHX, I would not hesitate, for the money it's the best option, unless you've considered the LV9500, which I think has a semi-glossy screen, but with some little calibration adjustments, the LHX produces an awesome picture, maybe Slickman can give a little post of what he thinks since he is the most recent buyer of this set.

I always base my opinion on cost vs performance, If one could buy a set for around the 1200-1500 dollar price point, why would someone spend two, three, or five times more than that, just for such a little visual indifference with regards to off-axis viewing, blooming, dse, and whatever else, I know their is to many possible set's to consider, one want's the best.....

It's not semi-gloss. You actually get to see an image of yourself and your viewing room in the darker parts of every scene, unless of course, you are in a controlled lighting environment.

I will share my impressions after I figure out how to deal with a glossy screen in a bright room (work in progress)

-nony

So the LV9500 is Matte screen? News to me, I thought I read somewhere it had semi-glossy / glossy screen??

How do you like the 9500 vs the LHX? Would you buy another LHX over the 9500? Is the dse noticable with the 9500 as with the LHX?

Hey TheaterChad, not an LHX owner here but I chime in about your question about the screen on the LV9500, which I do own. The panel has a single sheet of glass design, so it's basically a mirror. Remember the LE/LX9500, the LV9500 has the same look. Although, the LX at least had a glare filter bonded to the front glass that muted the reflections some.

As far as DSE on the LV's, I have not noticed it on mine but I have seen some very minor horizontal banding from the LED backlight arrangement during some scenes with a verticle panning camera. It is far less noticeable than it was on my old LE8500. I am very pleased with my LV9500, much happier with it than I was with the LE8500 and my Panasonic VT20.

BTW, I was just in your neck of the woods last weekend. Wife talked my into going to IKEA........ Tried to take a tour of the Surly brewery in Brooklyn Park but they weren't touring that weekend.

I do not care about your opinion, it truely means nothing to me. You claimed wrongfully that the LW9800 would out perform the LV9500 and people should not purchase the LV9500 until a review came out. Please stick you what you know, software .

You also were wrong when you stated the first LV9500 had V5 panels and were not true Nano sets and V6 panels were coming?

Then you purchased a LV9500, now you want people to respect your opinion? Did you know the truth when you told others not to purchase the LV9500?

Can you tell any difference with adjusting your white balance values?

Buy the way: I've been turning off my AV receiver with the auto-timer, and the LHX will show a no video source, and it will for a length of time, then the LHX shut's off automatically.

There's much more shadow detail in real life.

I was not recommending it, it was brought up where were they, so I was trying to help another forum member.
I have stated all along the LHX is a superior set.
I own both the LHX and the LV9500 and I am pleased with the 9500, the LHX blows it away!

The only new set I would consider is the Sony XBR929 for a main TV as my family is sold on 3D and the Elite is to much money.

I purchased what was a 10k dollar set the Sharp 52XS1 for 1k used with specs and picture that blow away anything. Sadly it will be a bedroom set do to no 3D.

The XS1 has a matte screen, Elite black levels and actual measured contrast of over 30,000/1 and RGB led blocks like the Sony XBR8.

My brother will probably jump on the LHX band wagon soon based on the positive review from Chad B on another forum.

Seems 3D has hurt 2D sets as the only great 3D set seems to be the Elite all others only be very good.

.

Agree 100% as I owned the LX9500, the banding was in a spot that I just could not ignore it. The reflection seems the same although I can control my lighting even in the daytime so may just not bother me. The other area where the LV9500 really shines is 3D, if this matters to someone. The 3D is better than last year LX9500 and much better than the XBR929. Doesnt make a difference anyway because the LV9500 is Sold Out and not available anyway.

I never said nor implied any of the above. You can avoid misrepresenting my posts by quoting them, as this is the appropriate protocol. I can then respond and substantiate my position. I encourage the curious to read my posts in the 55LV9500 thread if they desire to read my analysis.

If I have insulted anyone by citing what they have done, my intent has always been to expose the truth, and investigate as necessary. Two of my posts have been deleted by the moderator. However, the astute reader does not have to work too hard to connect the dots.....

To sum:

The 55LHX is King
The LV9500 is glossy (not semi-glossy)
Never let anyone pressure you into a purchase.
Don't forget to take pictures of konica's DSE-free set (conditioned on his approval, of course)

Yeah with my camera I could have either chosen to show all the shadow detail and wash out the entire image or show more of what the picture really looks like but with less shadow detail, I chose the later. There was still too much contrast in the middle picture, you can see it on the guy's forhead, in real life all the detail was there. The LHX is freaking awesome, can't say it enough. I'll put more pics up if anyone is on the fence about buying the tv.

Curious as to the manufacturing date? Are these NOS (new old stock) refurbished or are they actually manufacturing them currently? Have the eliminated the DSE issue?

I haven't noticed any issues with it so far, I just looked at it and mine was manufactured in February 2010.

Some complained about DSE I have never even seen it but the way some people complained about it in reviews it does not sound appealing.

Your photos look great, happy that you are enjoying your TV.
post #2575 of 3040
It's kind of a shame that this tv is being made still, or isn't still really being talked about, except here of course. I'm so happy I got one before they sold out completely. I wonder how many more are left out there in the wild. At first I thought that this was just an LH90 with better blacks, but compared to my LH90 this has better blacks, better whites, and more accurate colors. Skin tones look superb on this set, I'm wowed every time I watch a Blu-ray on it.

Must just be to expensive, that set has more LED's per sq inch then any accept the Sharp Xs1, but it was $10,000. Looking foward to the new Toshiba with over 500 led blocks to come here, rave reviews in Europe and might be a good 3D option. If it the LHX was 3D it would be in a truck coming to my house.

Here's a shot that everyone seems to take to show black level. No clouding and no flashlighting, just pure black.

Konica,

Out of curiousity, what areas does the LHX blow the 9500 away? I realize the picture will be better if there is a lot of ambient light in the room because of the LHX's matte screen but, in a light controlled environment is there still that much difference? Keep in mind, my 9500 just has some basic picture tweaks and I don't plan on having it calibrated. So when comparing the basic out of box settings, how do the two set compare?
