I did try poking around in the service menu by programming the pronto code from a few pages back into my harmony, worked as it should. Didn't change anything, but nice to see you can easily change the hdmi lag if needed. There's also controls for colors and white levels among other things.
-No dead or stuck pixels on my set
-No IR whatsoever, TV logos don't seem to leave a mark at all
-No input lag issues as described by others (PS3 via HDMI)
-Great picture for the $$, not deep blacks or perfectly sharp edges, but for the price, much better than expected.
-Some buzzing, not noticeable if the audio is up at normal listening levels, but on the lighter burn in slides, I can hear it with no background noise. It is directional though, so one end of the couch is louder than the other.
-Highly reflective screen, drapes have to be closed for you to enjoy a reflection free (or at least reduced) image.
-Finding it hard to reach a good balance between decent blacks and good greyscale definition, Seems as though with Gamma at medium and black level to low, it's too dark and the blacks get crushed a bit, but with gamma to low, or black level to high, it gets too washed out.
My previous tv was a 50" panasonic PZ80. Compared to that set, the LG has more buzzing (pana was silent), and poorer greyscale. But the LG's colours are cleaner, and seem to pop more, and the black level is about the same. And the reflections are crazy on the LG. Pana was useable with drapes wide open with no reflections unless sun shone directly on the screen.
I think if you have a realistic expectation about what you'll get for the least expensive 60" tv money can buy, you'll be pleasantly surprised by this set.
