Summary: Very, very disappointed. I will probably not buy another TV from LG or newegg because of this. I only learned of the "D" vs. "W" panels here, and sure enough, that may explain why our picture is so mediocre.
Pros: 1) Very slim. 2) Light and easy to handle. 3) Low heat generation.
Cons: 1) Horrible, horrible viewing angle which means the picture is just mediocre, not great. 2) Bluish gray tinge on all blacks if the viewing angle is not within 20° to the left or right of center.
Summary: The sheer depth and lighting that this unit provides is why I kept the TV aside from it's problems.
Pros: Beautiful picture, nice and thin, lot's of settings.
Cons: Bad sound, period. Had to use external powered speakers to compensate. When you zoom to adjust for pictures that are letter boxed (and not available in HD) it does not keep the aspect ratio like my last TV. And the manual adjustment does not stay in memory, in other words, you must adjust every t...
Summary: The picture and viewing angle are absolutely fabulous on my model. I was deciding between this and a Samsung LED, and I honestly would choose this TV (properly configured) over the Samsung now.
Pros: LED picture quality, LCD price LED power savings Multitude of inputs Interfaces with other LG products (namely, my HT system) extremely well. One remote controls everything right out of the box.
Cons: Default color settings are pretty atrocious. Don't leave the TV in it's "tru-motion" blah blah whatever ultra fast 120Hz mode. It makes normal videos/tv shows look super cheesy, very "home video-ish". I bumped mine down to 24 in the settings and I haven't had a problem since.
Summary: I hear that Samsung has the best image quality but the price for a Samsung is higher than I could justify for a tv that will not be the main tv in the house.
Pros: Thin, lightweight, good 2nd tv. I have received the VA panel. Since I do not have and IPS panel to compare it to, I cannot see where the improvement would be for the IPS over the VA.
Cons: LCD even with 120 Hz still does not come close to the viewing clarity of a CRT HDTV. The picture tends to look fake compared to a CRT HDTV. True contrast is probably the issue. Shows with less contrast tend to look more natural. It is annoying that using the headphone jack cuts out the sound to t...
Summary: A good deal at $550 and free shipping. I won the lottery and got the IPS panel the first time. However, as mentioned above I'm still experiencing the clouding issue other reviewers described for the non-IPS.
Pros: Easy picture adjustments. Good picture. Plenty of inputs.
Cons: On a completely black screen, there is some white clouding in two places near top of screen. Hardly visible when there are images playing though. Wish it had A/V output other than digital audio out.
Summary: I got a VA panel, but I think its still a fantastic picture for my Bedroom. No regrets at all! I won't be viewing at any other angles other than direct, so the IPS issue shouldn't affect me. Speakers are tinny, but I'm most likely going to get a sound bar since its in my bedroom.
Pros: 1080p - 120hz Price LED Incredible picture
Cons: Speaker sound is weak Only Toslink out for Audio out. No Input button on remote or tv for fast switching between devices. Really??? Who wants to navigate a pulldown just to switch sources?
