Teri, New forest Film and documentary lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent 3d
Good images
7pairs of glasses
Bad points:
Default picture settings need adjusting, at first I was disappointed until I read how to adjust the settings , you need to turn the backlight right up and the brightness low tomid, otherwise picture is hazy, once adjusted the picture is amazing so worth twiddling with.
Some lag when you change stations.

Mark, Stevenage

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Picture is Great the 3D is very imprersive and for all the gamers out there the dual play is very good fun, takes a bit of time finding the right picture settings but there are plenty of geeks out there that will help you find the best setting.
Bad points:
Small bad points the web browser is not that great needs updating and using a newer version of flash player also needs more memory and the TV has a glass front panel which if your not watching in the dark can reflect images on it from your room.Also you will have problems finding dual play glasses (I made my own out of 2 of the 7 pairs you get) even sent LG an email asking them where you could get them and they had no idea (strange reply as it was a selling feature of the TV)

Pete, Hastings

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
The picture quality is second to none. Like all LG tv's the menue system is easy to follow and use. The sound from this TV is spectacular as it has a built in sub woofer speaker. With the built in Wi-Fi its easy to set up your internet. As you will read, there are a few niggles with this Tv, but the pure quality of picture and finish of this Tv very much outway the bad points. I do recommend this TV, but at nearly two grand it will need some thinking about. All in all I am very pleased with this Tv and it looks great on the wall.
Bad points:
It takes forever to set up the picture quality needed to watch anything. There are far too many options for picture adjustment. You will spend days setting it up only to do a complete reset and have to start all over again. The motion wand is necessary to use the "smart" side of the tv and thats when you can get it to work long enough. Mine stopped working after only a week and you can only get them dirrect from LG. I am waiting for a replacement as I type.
