their neighborhood competitor is making a better panel.

Caught a glimpse of this today. Some pics here. Not great pics, but pics none the less. Looks like a beautiful TV, however, glossy finish could be a turn-off for some. You can see me taking the photo.

The Samsung UNxxD8000 was a disaster last year. I don't remember the last time I was so happy to be able to return something. I'm giving LG a chance this next time around.

Awesome! How were the viewing angles? Any evidence of clouding?

Was only there for a brief minute. Will head to a local shop and take a more careful look in a few days.

Honestly, it did look really beautiful. I think it was priced at around 4.5 G but i'll take a closer look at that as well next time.
post #67 of 222
cool, appreciate the pics. Im deciding between the 55" 7600,8600 and 9600.

Trying to find the sweet spot between price and features.

Seems like theres about a $300 jump to the next model up. If the 9600 is that much better than the others, Id pay the premium. Not sure Ill be able to see all 3 side by side though

Well, jeffro23, from my own experience, there is no comparison between edge-lit and full array local dimming. Local dimming is so far above in quality. I did both Local dimming and edge lit last year and, to make a looooong story short, I returned to local dimming. (LEX8 - LW5700 - LZ9600)

If you visit all the edge-lit TV forums, there are so many people trying to reduce clouding and flashlighting.

Don't even go there. Don't try to fool yourself into thinking that an edge-lit set will make you happy, because it will not (if your care anything about PQ).

I learned my lesson. Edge-lit TV's are a waste of a hard earned dollar. The few hundred dollars more for a set that will make you eyes pop is well worth the money.

I firmly believe this.

It's basic science. How can you light something in the middle of a screen, surrounded by black, and not produce clouding? It's impossible.

Even if someone is telling you that their set does not produce flashlighting or clouding i would question their honesty. Just read the forums.

BLACK IS THE ABSENCE OF LIGHT

cool thanks. good points

i received 2 emails from LG cust svc from an email inquiry. One rep said the 8600 and 9600 will be available in March. The other said 1st week of April with the dealers actually getting them 2 weeks later.

I have the samsung led local dimming 81F model which was the first led LCD TV that a person could afford! I also picked up an LG9500 led local dimming 480 nano TV from HSN.This was a steal deal!The lg lv 9500 has the plasma glare screen cover, but other than that, this tv is first class and I also would NOT waste my money on any LED TV that does not have local dimming

The glossy screen is definitely a no-go for me.

Looks like it fell apart in November. Scratch that off the list.

I think I would like a 47" matte screen for the kitchen and a 55" or larger for the family room. Both rooms are surrounded by a lot of large windows. Need 3D, and have networking at both places. I was looking at the 2011 lw5600 series for both locations. But, I am willing to wait for the new models if they have great improvements in picture quality, the bezel size doesn't matter as much.

From what I have read so far, the cinema screen is semi-glossy, which puts me on the fence. I would really like a Full Array with local dimming, such as the LM9600 series. The full LED is almost a deal breaker and its why I haven't jumped on the lw5600 series.

With that, how glossy is the semi-gloss on the new lg "cinema screen"?

a few companies are listing the 9600 as available for pre-order. though cant get any info as to when that will actually be

though this site says Expected availability: March 31 2012

Sorry to butt into your high end thread, but this one has caught my eye, good ol' ccfl LG CS460 (as I'm new I can't post the link but it's on LG's own site as coming soon) not the CS560 as stated by hdtv-news.com.
Mainly because I own a LD450 with the smudgy VA panel so I'm wondering if it will be another panel lottery this time around.

if led is so much better then why do they still make ccfl panels?
post #78 of 222
i went to BB to look at the LM6200 model -- i was interested in this model in 42 inch - but on the LG site - it says it has LED Plus - which i think is a dimmable TV - but i couldnt find any setting on the TV which would make me think it has it -

does anyone know for sure what LED PLUS actually is ? or is the PLUS only for the larger LM6200 TVs -

i really didnt like that magic remote it comes with - its a PC mouse cursor on the screen -

i really couldnt get a good look at the PQ there - was on 3D mode with a basketball game on - i put the glasses on - which are very cheap feeling - but thats ok as long as it really works - i wasnt impressed watching that game - it gave a little dept. to it - but nothing that much that would WOW me -

i am not knocking this TV - i know any TV in the stores are not at there best - i was trying to find out if it had dimming with the LED's -

i left the same way i went in - still not knowing -

LED is *not* better than CCFL when it comes to PQ. High-end professional-level IPS displays all still use CCFL. It results in a more expensive, thicker display, but you get a wider color gamut. The reason I believe is because the LEDs used, unless they're RGB combo LEDs, are almost always a variant of Blue LED that is so close to the end of the spectrum and high in intensity that it looks almost white to the human eye.

hmmm, i guess this is why my old LB5D was much better than the LX9500 LG had to buy back from me.

I don't usually participate actively in these threads but find them good reading.
However, your constant negative comments in this thread are getting REALLY BORING!

Agreement here.

Does anyone know what panel the LM9600 will using? I wonder if it will be AH-IPS (Advanced High Performance IPS). I was also wondering if anyone knows by any chance yet how many dimming zones this model will consist of this year? I do remember that their 2011 LW9800 (which didn't make it to the mass market due to many problems) was supposed to have 288 zones but only ended up with 96 in the North American and European markets but interestingly enough the Korean market got the 288 zone version. Because of the increased # of zones, the Korean LW9800 was given great reviews, especially for the blackness, etc but the European reviews were terrible and they were wondering why and when they investigated this, they found out that the other markets' # of dimming zones were diluted down to 96 from 288.

I really hope this isn't the case this year and that LG learned their lesson from that, they should keep it at least 288 because the Korean model was pretty impressive!

Hopefully someone can answer both questions in due time. I really would like to see if this model can compete with Sharp's Elite model!

Cheers,

Im wondering whats the deal with the 9600s. Would have thought there would be reviews, news out already now that we're in mid march and these are supposed to be out in a matter of days.

Im impatient cuz my Mitsu LCD is fried and im TV-less waiting for the new LGs

not a thing on LG site
post #85 of 222
It's incorrect information. LW9800 in Korea also had the same 96 dimming zones and many customers tried to get refund due to LG's false advertisement.
btw, I'm from Korea.

LG is full of false advertising. maybe not intentionally, but then again, maybe intentionally.

so have any of their CES flagship crud been released to any markets yet?

my LB5D is still working good.

The fact that they're using passive 3D is evidence that it's an IPS panel of some sort. It would make sense, since LG is the largest manufacturer of IPS panels. This could be great news for those of us who hate the viewing angles on the current crop of TVs from Samsung and Sony (using VA panels in 2012).
