I saw the LG 55LMG620 Google TV on the LG CES 2012 website:



There is very little spec info about this TV. For various reasons, silver is our preferred color choice, so I'm trying to find more info about the tv. Don't really care about the GoogleTV thing. I presume it is passive 3d. What I do care about is screen reflections (prefer matte or some sort of anti-glare), and some sort of local dimming (would prefer full array, but at least local dimming on an edge lit model). Did anyone see this one at CES? Did it appear to have a matte screen? Any info about local dimming?

Sorry to repeat the same questions about another model. But I also am intrigued by the LG 72LM9500, which can again be found on LG's 2012 CES website:



Again, not much info on this tv. Although this TV is a 72-incher, it looks suspiciously like last year's vaporware, the LW7700, which sported nano full-array local dimming. It also looks like the Korean and Hong Kong released 2011 72-inchers. Will this TV have full array local dimming? Will it be matte? Anyone get to see it at CES?

LW7700 is not vaporware. You can find it at powersellernyc.com, unless they sold out. It's inexpensive for a full arrayer, also.

I remember the 72" not being silver, I could have forgotten though. In fact none of there bezels where silver like that in the picture if I remember correctly.

I was CES, and in my view, the LG sets were the most impressive in the show. I took some pictures with my cruddy phone so they're of poor quality. Also, everything was playing in 3D (except a 2D display of OLED), so pictures look even more blurry than normal. This is just for viewers to get a sense of what LG demo'd.

The LG theme was all about 3D, and their passive LED technology was unbelievable, especially in their OLED sets.

OLED- Wasn't named the best in show for nothing. Absolutely the best picture quality in 2D and 3D!

LM9500- Huge but thick and clunky looking:

LM9600- Top of the line model. Absolutely stunning picture quality and gorgeous design. They had other "lower end" models with darker bezels.

84" monster- Also looked fantastic, and much slimmer than the 9500 series 72". Seemed to have a matt screen, but don't really remember well.

Thanks for the info and pictues Best.
post #38 of 222
Im really interested in one of these.

general question: Do manufacturers release sets once annually like cars, like a 2009 or 2010 lineup or are they release all throughout the year?
either way, any speculation on when these LGs would be available for retail purchase?
post #39 of 222
You mention the LG nano and it's different models, there's also an OLED model that has a stunning picture by LG. Samsung also showed one too at CES. I'm still stuck on the sound integration of the Bose Videowave model and I hear Apple will come out with a model similar to it sometime in 2012. I'm a sound freak and would like for LG to incorporate that. I love the all in one entertainment centers.

This is the only thing Ive been able to find recently:

http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-33199_7...e&tag=readMore


Interesting chart: "information given by the manufacturer to CNET."




"Availability of Feb/Mar is based on the words "Most of them are shipping in February or March" said to me by a contact at LG. I expect a few of these sets to appear later than that."


looks like the 9600s wont be available until Q2 or 3, but the rest we should be hearing about any day now as thit shows Feb/Mar availability
post #41 of 222
Six 9600 models, one with OLED. No confusion there.

Can't wait to see the price of that OLED, it ought to make Mits Laservue DLP look cheap.
post #42 of 222
that chart is mostly vaporware. most of that will be trimmed down, and of whats left will be by country, rebranded, or sold as an exclusive on HSN. why doesnt the LG website have a "coming soon" section???????? most of those models say "feb/mar", and as far as i know its already Feb2012 !!!!! not one of those models come up as a search hit on the LG website.
post #43 of 222
They never mentioned which year.
I'll bet the OLED goes for between $5k and $7k.

This would be killer for me. I have 42" of space to work with in terms of width. Been sitting on an upgrade for two years now waiting for the LED tech and passive 3D to mature a bit. If not, I'm stuck going with a 46" Samsung and active 3D - not all bad, but I'm one that suffers from the headaches, for whatever reason passive is a non-issue with me.

My DLPs are on their last legs and this is the year to replace them... Looks likes Sammy is going passive too, but it'll be another year.

I was wondering where this thread had sunk to. I wish they'd release the price of the 84" 4k set. That's interesting about Samsung & passive. Do you have a link to this info? Thanks.

Consumer Reports did another TV test and in the article OLED's were mentioned from Goldstar & Samsung.
Their guess at the price was around $6k.

(they must of read my post )
post #48 of 222
Yes, I hope the 55" OLED is released. Would love to test one and see how good they actually are......
post #49 of 222
OLED price will be $7999. I'm 99% sure.

In 2013 it will be something like $3999, so is better to wait a little.

I want to know what would be the price for 84LM9600.

Here are some better photos about the OLED:

And you know all of this how??

Screen shots of almost any TV can look great or poor depending on numerous factors other than the TV itself.

post #53 of 222
I would have to question that based on what was stated for the cost difference between a edge lit LED driver LCD and a conventional LCD. $3700 vs $1000.
post #54 of 222
first post so here goes. this is a little off topic but i just got off the phone with LG customer service and would like to know if anyone can confirm what i was told. i asked the rep if there would be any new model active shutter glasses to be released for the 2012 plasma's(i have a 60PZ750) and was told there would be 2. the ES-230 and ES-250. hoping someone has more info. i have held out on buying any glasses as i dont like the ag-s250 model. sorry for the long post.

Is vaporware your favorite word? You seem really down and upset at LG. Did they hurt you somehow?
post #56 of 222
The 55LM9600 has my eye at the moment. I'm coming from a 2011 Samsung UN55D8000... you can read my thoughts about it here, but needless to say it was a huge disappointment.

I know its early, but has anyone seen the LG 55LM9600 in person yet? I heard they're already being shown off in Korea. Do we have any Korean forum members? I'm really curious to see how well the full-array LED local dimming works on this set. Many others seem to have local blooming artifacts- I want to know if any were detectable, and if so, how bad they were.

i am not downing anyone. i know BS when i see it, LG does a good job at that. my experience with a LB5D was great. my experience with their crappy LX9500 was not so good, and their support really sucks.

CES is more like the annual car show, showing one-off's that never go into production, is a model that is 2-3 years away, or is just too pricey for the market. LG seems to be making/discontinuing "new" panels faster than pixar makes movies. LG does a good job of re-branding their crud to make it seem like a new model. their 1st to market shenanigans basically yields crud.
post #58 of 222
GosuGadget posted (as he admitted) a amateurish video, but it's the first look at the LM9600 outside of CES.

He said he'll get the 55LM9600 in for review in the next couple weeks.
