NANO LG LV9500 Official Owner's thread

YOU WANT 3D.......HERE IT IS follow this link to the promise land




http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showp...&postcount=473


Just ordered the NANO LG LV9500, does anyone know anything about this model at all? I'm seeing the LW9500 on amazon for a ton o money. Is it a step down from that model or what? They look identical.It is stated on HSN website as having the NANO 480 hz tech and it is also full array backlight. The one thing I do not know is if it is a local dimmed backlight. Any help would be appreciated.

Apparently from what i'm seeing, is that 3D is the only difference. If that is the case, I will gladly pay $2,000 less for the same television minus 3D. If someone else knows more than I do at the moment, please chime in.

This is odd, since it had been reported that this model and the step down NANO had been axed from a US release.

Well, I have a 3 week wait, so we'll see what model shows up. Go to HSN and see the specs if you haven't already.

Ok, yeah, this is really interesting. No idea what is going on since I just checked LG's site and nothing. Maybe it's an lx9500??? I was thinking this would be comparable and probably better than the Sony hx929.

The profile view from HSN.com looks different than lx9500 profile views. Specifically, the stand is different.

Dianabol5mg, have you considered calling HSN to get some more information?

Actually it's probably a 55LV9500 which has been mentioned on the forum before, including this post: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...0#post20501221

Guess it's fairly new to the market?

That's funny, cause I was in the market for a hx909. I just didn't want to settle on the 46". I already have a 46C750......needed bigger.

I'm very interested in this TV, seems like a nice TV for a nice price. I may have misread the other thread - was this TV cancelled for the NA market or was it the 55LW9500? Is this TV just too new to not really have much out on it? I was thinking about getting one of the 60 inch Sharps but this is a temping alternative, I don't really care about 3D.

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...304396&page=26


This seems like a steal - any reason why I shouldn't order this over the edge lit Sharp I was looking at? Again, don't care about 3D, care about the full array LED.

Is LG not supporting this TV for NA customers?

I think a lot of us have these same questions. I do know the 55LW9500 is selling for close to $4k on Amazon. So they are selling it in N.A. My personal opinion is that LG has a pretty good track record with full array, so i'm pretty excited. As far as both tv's are concerned, lv9500 and lw9500, I can't find really anything but what was posted about lw9500 back in January.
post #12 of 1747
Well, I'm taking the chance and just ordered it. Full array LED for $1500 to go with the thin profile? Sign me up. 3D is irrelevant IMO.

Hopefully it works out.

2350 sold so far so people seem to be jumping on this deal.
post #13 of 1747
This is just a guess because there always seems to be misinformation when it comes to LG and there marketing. Could it be large difference in cost is probably the model HSN is selling is full array without local dimming and the LW that's quite a bit more is full array with local dimming?

Hard to say but that seems to defeat the purpose of having a full array LED, doesn't it? Is there even such a thing as full array without local dimming?

Edit, I guess there is but that would seem odd for a 2011 model

http://reviews.cnet.com/2795-6482_7-399.html

Full-array without local dimming: The rarest of the bunch but the most familiar in concept. These models are just like standard LCD-based TVs aside from the fact that the CCFL backlight is replaced by LEDs. The "full-array" means that the LEDs themselves are arranged behind the entire LCD panel, not just along the edge.

Picture quality impact: No difference compared with standard LCD.

Example below: Sharp LC-46LE700UN (a 2009 model; we'll review the 2011 LC-70LE732U soon).
post #15 of 1747
Not really...all the current 70" Sharps are full array without local dimming and they actually made another model a few years back. Its better screen uniformaty and still allows for the a thin profile but at a lesser cost than FA with LD. That's most likely what it is, but that doesn't mean it can't be an excellent performer and a good value.

Well my thought process is this....if it sucks, I will return and either get my money back or get something else. The 46HX909 is nice, just not 55". So that's one possibility.

apparently being any nano television means they will be locally dimmed
post #18 of 1747
Watched the recently-posted video at http://electronics.hsn.com/lg-55-480...488512_xp.aspx. Somewhere around 25% through it mentions local dimming.
post #19 of 1747
My estimated shipping date is 8/22......wonder why it takes so long?
post #20 of 1747
First let me say I hope it a local dimmer as it would be a smok'n deal. That quick graphic showing LD in the video was probably a mistake. A couple of things...if it was local dimming it would have been a topic mentioned a numerous amount of times by the pitchman as it's one of the most desired and sought after features in an LED display and surely a focal point for for the pitchman. In addition, retail is 2399 that would make it insanely less than any 55" local dimmer that has debut up to this point, with the exception of the Vizio That being said, the full array non local dimmers have been very well received and the current Sharp is getting great reviews. If the black levels on this display are as good or better than what the 70" Sharp display are this may very well an outstanding display.

Now i'm wondering if it can be hacked for 3D. I wouldn't be disappointed if you can't, i'm just curious.
post #22 of 1747
I watched the video earlier, can't remember exactly what was said but I think it was updated? The guy at the beginning now said they were able to secure an exclusive deal with LG to get every unit in their inventory..........maybe a bunch of marketing crap or its just a deal on the first shipment of the new models? Hoping for the latter. 3 weeks will be hard to wait!

I disagree that the pitchman would have focused on the local dimming aspect -- it's just not a feature that is likely to be important (or even known) to most of HSN's targeted audience. As you can see they're more concerned with pushing the wand remote control and free games for kids.

It does look like they've updated the video since I first saw it. The updated video still says "local dimming", and the LG pitchman alludes to greater control over brightness and contrast vs. LG's edge-lit models.

I bit. If it's not an LD set, HSN will take it back.

I have to say that this television is locally dimmed. The LV9500 is a Nano tv, therefore, one of the features of LG's Nano tech is local dimming. Link to my flatpanelshd link it explains everything.
post #25 of 1747
One thing for certain is that it's got a glossy screen. I don't think the specs mentioned matte vs. glossy, but it's pretty obvious from the video.

I need it, i have kids. My LG PS80 took tons of toys to the face. The protective glass is a godsend to me.
post #27 of 1747
The HSN screen compares edge lit to fully backlit technology and does show local dimming, but, the pitch man never mentions it. I concluded that it does not contain local dimming from this omission.

LG has the 5600 models which have local dimming (although edge lit). Their specialty knock off of this model is the 5700, which is available at Sam's and Costco. It has the sema specs - with the exception of local dimming. 5600 has it, 5700 doesn't.

Probably the same thing here.

Alright...once again, if you read my flatpanelshd link above, you will find out what LG's Nano tech is. I found this earlier today. According to the site, if it's labeled Nano, it's locally dimmed. It's part of the tech, it's nothing added or subtracted, according to the link.
post #29 of 1747
So is this the same as the lw9800 coming out in october just without 3d ??

All the specs say it is. Some of us will find out for sure in 3 weeks.
