I had the 55 LH90 and really wanted to love the set (especially the price and size) , but the banding on scenes that panned was terrible and I don't mean color banding. There were literally 3 3 to 4 inch horizontal strips that that were of different brightness that could easily be noticed on any light colored scene that panned vertically. I wanted to puke when I watched the scene on Planet Earth where the polar bear slid down the snow slope and I first saw the banding. I was made equally ill when playing any video game where there is vertical panning like any flight combat game where there is a light blue partly cloudy sky. Then there was the opening scene in the Fifth Element where the professor is reading the hieroglyphics and the screen panned on the light tan wall, you could easily make out perfectly rectangular zones that were of different brightness. These are just a few of the banding examples let alone the Olympics. If it wasn't for this major issue this set would have more than done the job it was supposed to. Perhaps the 47 inch model is better , but I tried 2 55 inch models and they both had this issue and the second one through in some vertical banding for good measure.
One day I strolled into my local Magnolia and found out they were sitting on a supply of pro-101fd's and the rest is history. If I would have known this sooner I probably wouldn't have messed around with anything else. I ended up replacing 2tv's this year and it has not been fun.
