Kurt: can you confirm if it has local dimming?
I just bought this set from costco but haven't opened it up yet. Then I started reading about how the 7600 has local dimming and 240 hz refresh rate.... and I found it for only $200 more than the 6400... and I bought the 7600 (paid on line, have not picked it up yet... would be EASY return)
NOW, the more I read - the less it is clear whether the 6400 has local dimming or not. The box for my 6400 says "LED PLUS". but the LG website does not say LED PLUS (as for the 6700) on the main features description.
Right now, I'm thinking if the 7600 has LED PLUS and the 6400 does not, I will swap up for $200. If the 6400 has confirmed LED PLUS/local dimming (can you adjust the "local dimming" in the menu?) then I'll stick with the 6400 and pocket the $200.
If you happen to check this thread, could you say for sure if there is LED plus on the 6400? I don't want to unbox it to find out if I don't have to.
I've come to gather that the 240hz refresh rate is NOT worth any extra money... so it is really all about local dimming for me between these two models.
This link on LG website says "edge led plus" and "local dimming = yes" on the 6400. (second tab - panel specifications). But funny it does not proclaim LED plus on the first tab. confusing literature...
**UPDATE** ok I plugged in the TV. It certainly DOES have local dimming, and I have it turned all the way up, with Trumotion off! I might not be a good TV critic... I liked my old TV fine. But this TV, for $1200 at Costco... seems just super. I'm going to cancel the Best Buy order for the 7600. Just for me... and my wife... this TV seems great.
Next week some night when my wife is gone I'll search the site for some calibration tips. But the picture out-of-the box is good for me.
By the way I haven't seen anybody mention this - the 6400 has a black bezel and a black stand (I think maybe this scheme is not identical to either the 6200 or 6700?Edited by dozer95667 - 9/23/12 at 9:29pm
