Except for very big ticket items, it's a very small piece of the puzzle in my opinion. The biggest thing with Amazon is 1. convenience, and 2. price (even with tax), and 3. a great return policy.

Yes I did. Is that a big deal? I sold 10 on amazon for about $15 because no one was biting on craigslist lol.

Use the contrast brightness and color from other modes you like. Just make sure most of the advanced controls and picture options are turned off..

What's up with that?
Anyone...?
Is this a difficult question?

I honestly haven't noticed any new functionality with 04.31.30, my tv pulled the update automatically. No new premium apps. I have lost the ability to use Netflix, cannot connect, tried deactivating with no luck. And YouTube now crashes the TV after several minutes of viewing, I have to power off and on again to get things moving. Perhaps the update was pulled for these reasons. I have a service tech coming by to repair. Also, I can no longer choose the audio stream from Plex/media link. This looks like it was deliberately removed.

Can anyone confirm that YouTube and Netflix function okay after 04.31.30?

If anyone is considering this TV for it's Smart features, I would look elsewhere.

You guys don't know how lucky you are. I'm in Buenos Aires, and after reading a big chunk of this thread I've decided to go for the 55LM7600, although my decision is based mainly on price - I can get a 10% discount on the advertised price of 24,999 pesos....that's USD4,900, AFTER the discount.

Is that because of import tariff? I'm doing the math and it seems crazy that you can't get one for $1500, and spend less than $3500 in shipping and end up ahead. Perhaps the return policy wouldn't be all that great though....

No, it's because it's Argentina. The TV is actually assembled in Argentina, otherwise they wouldn't sell it here - imported goods are banned. I gave up trying to ship stuff here 2 years ago, after an entire year of stuff not arriving (like books, clothes etc for my kid). Even if I did try that route there would be a 50% import duty (of the list price, NOT the price I paid), plus the 15% tax on all purchases made outside the country by credit card, plus whatever 'gifts' I'd have to pay the customs officials to release it - I still wouldn't get much change from USD4000 and with the chances of it arriving undamaged, or even arriving at all.....nah, I'm stuck with paying the USD4,900.

wow, sorry to hear that...well i hope you are one of the lucky ones and get a decent panel right out of the box....returning/exchanging seems like it would be a nightmare.

Wow. I'm really sorry you're in such a crooked environment.

I would recommend getting this TV and use the Smart features. I do not at this time have an account with Netflix but it is connecting, it does take a tad longer than some other apps. Perhaps you have other internet or router problems, and not an LG problem?
Vudu, Amazon, and Youtube all working flawlessly. When fist purchased the Youtube app did freeze for some, but I have not had that problem since that early software.
My media link is working fine, (not using Plex) not sure how you came up with some deliberate removal? Are you seeing others saying they can not use Plex/media link because of this update also?

Now I've actually written down just how much it's going to cost, I think I might have talked myself out of it! Ha ha!

I think the 40" Series 6 Samsung that cost me almost as much 2 years ago might have to do for another couple of years....unless someone's coming to Buenos Aires in the near future and would very kindly volunteer to bring a 55LM7600 over for me?

;-)

Sorry to hear they cost so much where you are.

Has anyone had the issue where the TV will not recognize an input signal? The screen is blank and the TV says no signal but the icon for the input is color indicating the input is active. I have seen this with a PS3, X-box and Direct TV box. If I turn the TV off and then on, then it sees all the signals.
post #2362 of 3922
For those that have this set already:

Did you use a warranty company? If so:

  1. Which one?
  2. How many years?
  3. What did it cost?
  4. What made you decide to use them?
  5. Do you like/hate the warranty experience for this TV?


THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
post #2363 of 3922

Yes. I've seen it a couple times with my Time Warner DVR. Have to shuffle everything off and back on.

I bought the Squaretrade one from Costco for $99. It is 3 years on top of the Mfr warranty.

For the price of this TV ($1000-14999) the squaretrade.com site shows that 4 years (3 years more than the the LG 1 year) is $169. Does Costco make it even less expensive?

Yup. According to the terms of agreement, it is three years on top of mfr warranty plus the Costco concierge (if you buy the TV in Costco) or 4 years (mfr + 3.)

You don't even need to be a Costco member to buy this. Just have to pay like a $5 fee.

That's what the costco thing says: 2 years "concierge" + 3 additional years, for $99 (sets over $1000). For the record, the only warranty available from BB is BB's own. Bestbuy quoted me $269 for the 55lm7600. And I think it was actually 4 years, but I'm not sure. That said, however, the people who've spoken up about it have often said that it truly is stellar.
