You guys poo poo'd all over this set and only gave it 2.5 out of 5 stars... and the set you reviewed isn't even the same one in this thread.

Most other professional review sites i have seen gave this TV fairly glowing reviews.

Am i missing something here?

I don't understand. How did you remove the chances of recording a beat frequency again?

I read a review on Amazon that states audio passing through the Opitcal output ONLY puts out stereo and not full surround.. is that true?

My TV just arrived at my house today and my GF signed for it, i wanted to hook up the HT-CT15 Sound Bar i have and was going to use optical but if it doesn't work properly.. :/
post #2224 of 3922

*Holy crap you guys were talking about this just a few posts up... ugh sorry super swamped at work and didnt look back through the thread at all. haha

LOL....

Ok i went home and helped my GF set the TV up during my (extended... oops!) lunch break.

At first i was insanely ecstatic setting everything up... no dead pixels that i can see which is good.

However when i decided to turn the TV on/off and check for screen uniforimity i became a bit disappointed.

The screen has minor flashlighting along the top which doesnt bother me at all, but it has a bit of clouding in the bottom left corner when the screen is black.

On top of this... i stepped back and looked again and realized that the entire left side is brighter than the right side. Like a third of the left side is brighter while the right side is solid black.

Is this normal and/or fixable? It's kind of subtle really i had to look for it on purpose to catch it but i'm sure as i mess around with the TV later it might begin to bother me a bit more haha

***Ok spent more time with the TV today after work...

The left side of the TV doesnt seem as plagued by blotches as badly as when i first turned it on. They're still there but they seemed to have moved up to the top left of the screen more from like half the TV up and i don't really see it at the bottom. Strange... will it continue to get better? I hope so because i dont want to have to go through the hassle of returning it in hopes of getting a better panel.

3D works great and i don't see any of the artifacts that people complain about??? 2D to 3D Conversion works surprisingly well! My gf watched Harry Potter with my son with the 2D to 3D default settings and wasn't that impressed... then i picked up the remote and changed the depth and she freaked out haha. Putting it on extreme makes us a little cross eyed though. I tried Sonic Generations with Stereoscopic 3D on the 360 and when i made sonic run it got super blurry along the ground and i couldnt see a friggin thing. Then i went back into the settings again and for some reason picture mode was set to standard again. Switched it over to Game while in 3D and it fixed that. 3D gaming is AWESOME on this thing... but it did make me sick to my stomach after awhile.

Speaking of gaming, i popped in Battlefield 3 on the 360 and set the input to PC and picture mode to Game. Didnt see any lag but the picture did seem lighter(blacks more grey) and things didn't seem as sharp... not exactly blurry or smudged but definitely not as sharp as i'm used to on my Samsung or the other picture presets on the LG. I'll try setting the picture to Game and checking the lag to see if the picture looks any better without sacrificing input accuracy.

Blacks are definitely lighter than my 4 year old Samsung LCD but i haven't tweaked the settings at all, just fiddled with switching between standard, vivid, game, etc. If the blacks don't get any darker than they are now i think i'll be able to live with it.

Apps are sluggish but that's fine. I love that i can stream videos from my PC directly to the TV. Previously i was using my 360 to stream movies. Very cool! Netflix works ok but i think i'll stick to using it on my 360.

The remote pointer icon turns off super fast now... when i first got the TV if i moved the remote around the pointer would pop up and i would have time to explore. Now i find myself constantly wiggling the remote to wake it up. Dunno what happened???

Is it possible to use our Android phones as a remote? I saw the section about an App we can download but i went looking for it and didn't find it on the google play store.

I'm surprised at that. Best Buy has been increasingly cranky about nearly everything lately. From their website, they don't list Microcenter.com as an option at all:

Its true best buy did pricematch microcenter... I got the pricematch on the 55lm8600. I cancelled the order because they told me the delivery will take 3 weeks. But attached is the receipt. I was told that best buy will pricematch microcenter if there is one within 25 miles from your home address. proof of cancellation.JPG 100k .JPG file

I have the HDMI 1 Out to my TV set with ARC active. Everything works as desired until I try to view/listen to content from the TV, such as Netflix. It would appear that the ARC is not working. I am under the understanding that ARC will feed the audio back to my receiver when the source is the TV and not the other HDMI inputs. But it's not working like that. I don't see anything else to set on my receiver. Is there something I need to set on the TV when watching such content? I normally have the TV set to External Speakers as I watch everything through my receiver.


Anyone familiar with ARC (audio return channel) with this set?

The microcenter website is pure irritation to me. Perhaps I have an app interfering (firefox).

I just got this set last night. It was either this, or I was thinking about going for the V-50 plasma.. I am happy I saved a grand. With some of these negative responses I was a little worried, but from all the research I did it seemed every TV had cheers and jeers. I love this TVs passive 3D, and I have to say I can't believe that the original image is sacrificed to achieve it's 3D effect. Really it look as crisp and sharp as the 2D Blu-Ray, and I am convinced I'm looking at full HD 3D. It has no crosstalk, the picture is bright, and colorful. My friends Plasma he got in the beginning of this year IMO isn't as good, and the 3D was ho hum, I did notice cross talk, a dark picture, and flicker, unlike this set which is just, or even better than the theater.
I was tweaking the massive settings a bit to achieve the best picture, I did manage to find an image I am so far pleased with, tho I am going to pick up a calibrating disc... Anyway to see if I can do even better.
As for flashlighing, I do notice a slight bit of it at top left area near the corner, but its not distracting. No clouding, that i can see.
I don't know if its true that if you loosen the screws a little in the back, that it will clear it up.. Anyone successful with this trick?
The more I watch this TV the more I love it!! Black levels are great!!



Great TV!

Can you clarify this? Are you able to see dark grays, dark browns, etc., as such and not have them squash to black?

Had same issue, but the audio feeds on the TV input of the Onkyo.. So you have to manually switch over to TV when in the app screens.

Ss long as it's calibrated correctly and the source is good enough to produce it, no question it produces darker colors well. Blacks not up to Samsung but much better than past LG TV's. Like any LCD bright rooms hurt the details. I continue to be amazed that this TV is underrated. Out of the box or using it's built in Picture modes it blah. But get it calibrated correctly and it's wow.

Lottery blues perhaps?

That was the general consensus 2 years ago when I couldn't for the life of me get the Samsung UN46C6300 to stop squashing dark anything to black. I started dreading watching TV and was so relieved when I returned it and started watching the CRT again.
post #2239 of 3922
The Samsung my Brother has is about 8 months old, but he does not live near me, I saw it over two days while I was there and don't remember what model. I felt the blacks were very good, yet could see color graduations. Without seeing them side by side, I would say the LG does not quite have as good blacks, but does even a little better showing dark browns. I think this is because the LG is more vibrant. Colors just seem to jump off the screen better, more "alive" while the Samsung to me a little on the subdued side. So darker reds and browns are better distinguished. If both were professionally calibrated then a the real differences could be determined.....
Fwiw, in the stores both TV's not calibrated I feel the same way - the LG just has a better looking overall picture to me.
post #2240 of 3922
For 3D, I'll likely have our eye-height at the bottom bezel. Will this cross-talk things up? I couldn't verify this properly at BB, their display was too low and I couldn't get under it enough.
post #2241 of 3922
Get your set profesional calibrated. You will never ever gonna regret the result. You will see a big difference in PQ before and after especially blacks. And i am loving it what i am seeing on my set now. smile.gif

I am. I switch the input to TV. But I might not have something set correctly on the receiver? This receiver, Onkyo TX-SR309, has 4 hdmi connections on the back, with one listed as "output" and connects to the TV. It's the only hdmi connecting to the tv. And I have the Audio on the receiver setup to have ARC on. I don't see anywhere else that I can set or specify ARC. Am I missing something from how ARC works?

Thanks.

For those asking about the $1100 price, I have no idea how long micro center will have that price and they don't list the TV on their website. I had two different BB stores price match it, one of these was an hour and a half from the closest MicroCenter and they obviously were a little harder to convince. They only had one in stock and my parents also needed one so we drove down toward Duluth and had the BB there do a price match, this time it was as simple as could be, they already had a list of local phone numbers with MicroCenter on it to call and check the price and we were out of there in 15 mins.

Is there a non-user accessible menu for our tv's. That only an ISF calibrator can access?

Very deep blacks!
When I bought this TV the PC Richard showroom purposely had this TVs demo unit set up to look horrible!
Color was muddy, blacks where grey., contrast too low. I had got one of their salesmen to hand me a remote from the back and I started to change the settings. I went into expert mode and just started to play around and managed to get the picture brighter, when I seen enough to sell me, the salesman put those settings back to looking horrible.
Maybe I got lucky with this panel? Idk
They were pushing the Samsung models.

Yes, for a few things, has been covered extensively. Do a search on the thread or better take a look at the posts, there is alot you can find out.
post #2247 of 3922
Does anyone know how to turn off the 2 hour auto turn off timer? We need the tv on for at least 8 hrs a day, connected to a pc by hdmi.

Thanks for you response but can you do me favor and link me. Or tell me exactly what needs to be accessed. Trust me i've search up and down this thread.
post #2249 of 3922
Is there any reason not to use ZOOM in 3D when watching 2.35 sources? I thought this wouldn't work and you would end up with terrible ghosting but it actually seems to work fine. I only do this for 3D!
post #2250 of 3922
Y'know what's weird. This is absolutely NOT a complaint, but when I look at the 55LM7600 on the wall next to any other thicker bezel 55" TV, it looks substantially smaller. Bezel illusion. I had to take my measuring tape out and verify I wasn't going nuts. Or that I was.
