nony, I think it is the same screen as our LW9500 here in Oz.
I posted some pics in the LG 2011 lineup thread, but have owned the screen now for about a month and am very happy so far.
Local dimming, some minor blooming in really high contrast areas (like the letterboxes) but nothing too distracting. No clouding, banding etc that i've seen so far.

I've been able to use the EZ setup and Install menus to renable the THX presets, PVR function (which is enabled here in Oz anyway) and the 3D settings. Unfortunately it doesn't look like enabling the 3D does anything, besides getting the 3D menu options (SBS, 2D->3D etc) only 3D source I have is ESPN 3D which is SBS and it had no effect. Doing 2D->3D only brightened the picture. Oh wells
