Anyone know of a good review of the 2d features of the 47LW6500 ( blu ray, tv and dvd playback)?

alexander, I'm just passing on what I've read elsewhere, but in another LG LW5600 thread the claim has been made by at least two xbox 360 users that their lag issues were solved by the combination of:
- choosing "Game" mode, OR manually turning off both Tru-Motion and Local Dimming.
PLUS (and this is the controversial part) going into the Inputs screen, and for the input you are using for your Xbox, re-label it (or perhaps re-characterize it is a better term) as being a PC.
It's a MATTE screen, looking at it right now.
I really wanted to love this TV. I was at Best Buy and saw the passive 3-D on display and was completely blown away, I also loved the fact that this is one of the few televisions released by any manufacturer this year that has a matte screen, I have lots of large windows in my den and I can't deal with the glossy mirrors that Sony, Samsung and Panasonic insist on releasing.
The problem with this television, and what is just about inherent in all LCD and LED technology, is the bleeding of light around the edges, MURA (clouding and flashlights) and terrible uniformity of white light on black screens. I uploaded a photo to see: the backlight was all the way down to 30, brightness and contrast were brought down and the LED dimmer was turned on and off (made no difference), and there is terrible light leaking around the edges, and in the bottom right corner some terrible blooming. During the day this is acceptable, but at night it's very distracting and annoying, especially when watching a dark movie like Apocalypse Now or The Dark Knight. My first LCD TV in 2007 had the same exact problem, and I'm amazed manufacturers can release these units with such poor uniformity. I am by no means a videophile, but if I'm spending $2k of my hard earned money, I don't want a television that has light leakage issues.
So I decided to return this unit, get some black out curtains and just bite the bullet and buy a Panasonic plasma VT30 for $500 more, same 55" size. When I receive it I'll do a comparison, I've come to the conclusion that glossy screens and probably plasma technology in general are going to give a better picture with deeper blacks and none of these issues. Maybe one day they will figure out to overcome this issue, but for anyone who watches TV at night, it's a deal breaker.

I tried loosening the screws on the back of the unit a little to no avail. Bleeding went away a little on left side, but still bad on right side... Back to LG it goes.
