LG 55LW9800 Nano Full LED 3D Passive TV

post #1 of 349
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

I just found that LG's new LW9800 Nano Full LED 3d Passive TV, with 480hz TrueMotion TV.


I thought LG was going to launch 4K Next generation TV but instead they end up with new nano tech TV. Which doesn't seems to be an big uplift to the TV tech.

I think TV tech, where its getting very profitable with the sale of plasma, LCD, LED and new 3D innovative market. we can see some failures like Toshiba Cell TV and Mitsubishi Laservue...

Has anyone seen this TV??




specification of TV is,

As far as I know it hasn't been released yet. Think they are showing it in Germany in september and will probably reveal the release date then? Hopefully I'm wrong and they'll release it sooner.

Hey guys, I found the info about this tv from the official Lg website so presumed that this tv has been launched somewhere. Some guys I think have got their hands on it and so I wanted an opinion on it.

As Lg promised 4k nano tech 3d tv which I expected to be released quite soon mainly for the full 3d effect in full hd. Also, with picture upscaling effect, it would be a huge impact on the current tv tech available on the market.

Similar to Mitsubishi laservue tv, and Hitachi cell tv plan, Lgs 4k tv could be one of the dreams that could collapse mid way.

Moving forward with the improvements to passive 3d tech which is definitely the way forward in comparison to the current shutter active technology.

Will Lg, as pioneers in 3d passive technology who are considered to be the driving force for the market, with genuine improvements and launches such as the lw9800 be just a profit orientated launch or will there be decent and valuable technology behind it?

This model has already come under the scrutiny of tech critics who by the sound of things are not that impressed. What to expect then people?

Also Beach and J&R. 3k

So will tv have any improvement to the passive tech? For instance getting full 1920x1080 in 3D mode?

I really doubt if LG is going to solve all of its issue related from its first generation of Passive TVs.

First I will just remind you the main few issues, related with this tech,

1) Ghosting and Picture bending

2) Black lines in 3D Mode,

3) 3D mode offer only less then full HD 1080p resolution....

It appears LG doesn't keep all their web specs up to date. Reading the following, it states WiFi is built in:

just ask the 65LW6500 owners what they think of LG's web specs...240Hz, matte screen one posting...120Hz, glossy the next.

Put in my pre-order deposit today. Dealer said I'm the third person to pre-order this set with him.

Re: The $1400 question - not even close!
post #21 of 349
Are there any professional reviews that compare this model with the LW6500 because I would like to know if its better to wait for this set to come down in price or should go ahead and get LW6500 instead.

Yuuckk! Edgelit! - you want an edgelit over a backlit? With edgelit, you'd never, ever need to buy another flashlight in your life!
(PS. You can't get a review, when the set isn't available yet! Understand, suppose to be released on the Sept 15th; barring any unforseen problems, like hurricanes, etc!

No exactly sure what you mean but I am guessing that you are saying that I should wait for this new model

Apparently, Frys was blowing out the 55LW9500 3D for less than $1500 - you may want to check if they have any left in your area. There's no Nano technology though.

Not possible. 55LW9500 is not even released yet. The one you are talking about is LW6500 which is last year's model.

Actually, the NANO full array active 3D 55LW9500 is discontinued, and replaced by the passive 55LW9800. There are a few 55LW9500 showed up in the market before LG change the plan to make it passive. Saw one in Frys one month ago, it is also THX certified, but interestingly, I could not find any 3D setting. The price at that time was $3599.

Unfortunately, I've now deleted it - but it was an Amazon.com Page with the 55LW9500 clearly listed for sale at close to $4k. This model was released to vendors, but shortly after, it was cancelled. One particular Frys, found 3 of them sitting in their warehouse - so cleared them out. ALL were gone in a very short period of time! Nano, or no nano.

It's the 55LW9800 we're waiting for, which is backlit.
The 55LW6500 is a edgelit.

Sorry, my mistake. I was indeed taking about 55LW9800 not 9500.

Any new news about this particular set ?

Edit: Seems like it already available.

There are a few sites that now list the 9800 as a pre-order...J&R being one of them. I talk to a sales rep yesterday and he said a couple of weeks and they should be in. We'll see.
