I'm not sure what you're going on about. I own this TV and love it. I guess I'm less bent up over slick marketing terms.
120Hz isn't a "slick" marketing term, it's a real hardware spec. LG has been cheating for ages. Their sets are 60Hz sets that simulate 120Hz through flickering the lights. People aren't bent out of shape about a "TrueMotion" mode or anything like that, they're upset that the TV won't properly display a 24FPS film without interpolating frames because it's technically a 60Hz TV, not a 120Hz TV. Additionally, the 3D will suffer as TVs/Blu-Ray players aren't good at interpolating 3D video, which gives convergence issues.
I paid about this price for the 42LM5800 a while back and I have been pretty happy with it. It is primarily used for the Wii and Blu-Ray's for our kids in the second living room. This is a good TV for the price.
I've been going around in circles for the last month looking at TV's. Just couldn't bring myself to pass up on this deal. I'm sure I could find it cheaper in a few months, but I'm sure by that time I'll have spent all our tax return.
This deal is still available. I passed my first one on to a family that was looking to get a TV locally and ordered a second one. I really don't like smart TVs (because they'll just be outdated in a year) and I don't like the magic wand remotes. This TV was solid to me and the price is solid too.
