I would hate to buy an inferior 7200 series tv for the same price as the 7600.
Anyone know anything about pricing on this 7200 or better yet where I can find a 7600 anymore since best buy has removed it from their site?

Well, I got mine today and my first impression is that it is awesome. One problem I came across is that it only had 4 pairs of 3d glasses instead of the 6 that is stated on the box. I'm sure it will get sorted out. I've contacted LG already and am awaiting response. I suspect that's the reason it was pulled from the website.

You should be able to go to your settings for your Direct TV and go to program remote the first code that came up for LG worked for me. Also does anyone else see that when you are using the magic remote that in the top right it says 16:9 10801i 60HZ.. why 60HZ??? I thought it was supposed to be 240HZ.

BTW, is the bezel flush with the screen? Other than WiFi display, Windows 7 certification and jacked up dynamic contrast ratio (all of these are useless for me) I can't see any difference in specs.

Well, it's 2 and a half inches for the speakers, but that's just the speaker pods, the entire panel is 1 inch thick, it's quite awesome.

The stand is huge, I didn't weigh it, but I don't believe and can't remember it weighing over 20 pounds.

Also, the speaker pods look like they are removable. They're made from a different plastic than the rest of the panel. It might be worth looking into removing those, I'm sure someone will try it.

The bezel is almost flush with the screen, maybe 1 millimeter raised.

Finally, about the published specs, my owners manual states different weights and width for the unit.

Weight is at 68.3 lbs with the stand, and 60.1 lbs without, that certainly makes sense as it would mean that the stand weighs a reasonable 8.2 lbs.

Also, the depth without the stand is stated as 2.5 inches, the same exact measurement I took today.

I don't know why it's misprinted, the TV is awesome for $1700 and doesn't need to be oversold with false info.

What is that plastic piece hanging off the right bottom side of the tv? It kind of sticks out from an otherwise clean bezel. Is it removable?

That's the intelligent sensor! And no, It can't be removed.





Last pic shows the raised bezel.

I had 6 pairs in my box. Frys has the dual play glasses for 14.99 for 2 pair.

Does anyone else see that when you use the magic remote and when the bar appears along the top in the top right it says 16:9 10801i 60HZ.. why 60HZ??? I thought it was supposed to be 240HZ Anyone know why or if you can change it somehow? Thanks!!

I think its telling you what the source is.

that was because of the braodcast signal from the station or from the cable. watch bluray and it waill say 1080p/24p

Yeah, nothing wrong with the TV, not all broadcasts are at the TV's full potential.

Thanks Obi Wan. If I hadn't paid just $1360 at BB for the 55LM7600 I'd have replaced with 7200 already.

How is the flashlighting / clouding? Anything noticeable? When you have some time, would you be able to post a picture of the screen showing a black picture in movie mode?

My 7600 has some that didn't go away after calibration and immediately noticeable in dark scenes for those coming from a high end plasma.

Sure, I can post a pic. However, I'm a little busy right now, I should have it up by tomorrow morning.
post #47 of 731
Oh thanks, absolutely no rush. I'll also post mine to see how it compares.
post #48 of 731
Well, you guys just about have me convinced. I nearly purchased the 55LM7600 @ BB before discovering the 60LM7200 on their website. Of course, my local store didn't have one and BB promptly removed it from their site. But at last check I can still order it from BB's business site... the first time I'll ever be making such a major purchase sight unseen.

That said, any last minute info or words to the wise before I give them my cc info? Thanks!

Hey I just got mine today! I will be unboxing later this evening and will posts pictures/how I feel about it. As of now, I am very excited about getting this up and running before the Knicks game tonight!
post #50 of 731
I also just went ahead and bought one. It's $800 less than the next comparable samsung. I haven't seen a better deal. I still don't like the sensor positioned so weirdly but it's about the only negative I can see so far.
post #51 of 731
Just thought I'd chime in and let you guys know about my experience with the 60LM7200 so far. I've been keeping up with any news on this forum and other places on the web since this TV is so new and there is limited information available about it.

I purchased this model from HH Gregg on Saturday. They didn't have it on display, but had two in the back. My salesman said they had just gotten them in, but they weren't supposed to display them until after Black Friday or something like that. I don't even think they're supposed to be selling them yet, but that didn't stop me from getting mine.

The TV is great, but mine had a great deal of backlight bleed on the lower two corners. I couldn't take it, especially when watching a movie at night. So I exchanged it for another 7200 yesterday. This one is better as far as backlight bleed, but there is a bit more clouding than the previous one and there are two horizontal lines about an inch apart running horizontally from the left side of the screen to about 1/4 of the way across the screen before they fade out. Sort of hard to describe, but they're almost like white ghost lines that you really notice when the scene pans on a solid background or something. They're located about halfway down the vertical side of the screen.

I'm not sure what to do at this point. It seems like a great TV for the price, but these quality control issues have me a little bummed out. The hassle of disassembling these things, boxing them back up, and exchanging them is not something I look forward to spending my time doing.

Here's my problem. I don't know virtually anything about these common issues with big LCD LED TV's and thus can't describe them even if they exist on the LM72. I did take some pics last night while having a movie paused on a black screen and there does seem to be some light patches in the corners, but when I moved my head around and looked at the screen from a slightly different angle, they disappeared.

So, is that flash lighting / clouding or not. I was really hoping rexian96 posted a pic of his LM76 so that I could duplicate the correct conditions with my pictures.

Anyway, when I took the pics, I turned the lights off and tried using both flash and no flash on my DSLR, here are the results.




Anyway, to me the TV is amazing and I wouldn't switch it out for anything.

Yours looks pretty good. That's pretty close to how my replacement unit looks (except the white lines described above on mine). My first one had extremely bright glowing spots along the bottom edge about two inches in from each corner.

I just got it! I do not see any bleeding or anything but then again I am not a videophile.

Can someone give me the settings they used for the picture? vivid, contrast, etc

I am not good with this calibration stuff, first tv in 10 years, so if anyone can share their settings, that would be wonderful!

I can upload pictures or something if anyone wants?
post #55 of 731
Well, I got to see it in person at another Best Buy. Picture looked great but I really couldn't put it through its paces, and I'd hoped to compare the 3D to the 55LM7600 on display. Yeah, the sensor is a bit odd but not a deal breaker. And while I'm disappointed the bezel isn't quite as thin and sleek as the 7600, the last pieces of the puzzle for me are: What's the stand like? (Can't mount it on the wall at the chosen location.) What's the remote like - standard, scroll ball, or Magic?

The stand is beautiful (the same one as the 7600, same design).

The remote is a magic remote, and i'm playing around with it now, kinda wish i had a traditional remote just for ease....its cool right now but I feel like I'll get tired of it, but then again I have my HD cable box remote that I will be using anyways...so not a deal breaker for me...loving it so far

i hope that helps

Thanks! That helps a lot. Sounds like I've got no choice but to snatch one up before they disappear!

Pics and calib notes when time permits too, please. Thanks again!

I can upload pictures later today...I can't give any calibration notes, because I honestly do not know what the proper settings should be. Hopefully one of the other posters has more experience and help us out.

GL!

First off, using the picture menu settings values from another TV like yours will not result in a calibrated display, as explained in this "sticky" thread from the top of this section of the forum:'Sharing display menu settings?'http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1055906This link offers additional explanation and documentation: http://forums.hdtvtest.co.uk/index.php?topic=7202.0 .Secondly, the AVS HD709 calibration program can be burned to a DVD. The files can be read by most Blu-ray Disc players. Here's the link that explains how it works: http://www.avsforum.com/t/948496/avs-hd-709-blu-ray-mp4-calibration
