For myself & several others it would cost me more than $50 in travel expenses to get to a Microcenter store. Not to mention the travel time which I don't have.

So, they mention "LG's Motion Clarity Index 240" which I am pretty sure is processing done by the TV to insert frames? Does this mean that the panel is actually a real native 120hz panel? Trying to decide value vs. the $400 49" 60hz LG deal. If it is a "true" 120 hz should I care vs a 60hz?

Hate those legs out at the edge of the set, really forces a wide stand if not wall mounting.

The panel is a native 120Hz panel...the MCI 240 mode doesn't insert fake frames to be displayed (like the native 120Hz will without true 120Hz input), but rather flashes the LED backlight in between frames (or I would assume as this is how nearly every other manufacturer does it), essentially doubling the frames/second, but honestly adds nothing. It's mostly all hype with no real benefit, and I keep it disabled.

That said, I have this TV, and it's a fine panel for the price. Standard content is rendered flawlessly, and the 120Hz native refresh rate allows for 24p movies to be watched without 3:2 pulldown, and allows external sources to realize their higher frame rates (I.E. PCs with competent graphics connected via HDMI v1.4).

If you are a cinema fanatic that wants proper reproduction, and/or you wish to hook it up to your pc and would like the additional frames to be realized, go with the 120Hz panel...if you aren't a discerning movie fan and only watch tv, and you don't mind that a PC link will be limited by the panel's refresh rate, go with the 60Hz and save some cash.

* I'm unsure if the other model you referenced is an IPS panel, but if it isn't, the 50LB5900 is, and it's superior to TN panels with poor viewing angles and reduced color accuracy...so something else to POTENTIALLY considering (if the other model isn't an IPS panel).

Hope the info helps Smilie

Thanks, there was some debate on the panel of the 49" deal. Somebody mentioned that some have MVA panels, originally IPS was speced, someone mentioned "IPS = better viewing angles while VA can achieve better blacks thus better percieved contrast."

The LG site does not specify this model as IPS, but does other models. Is there a source that shows this as IPS?

I have this TV. It is totally awesome. I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't care about smart TV stuff like built in Wi-Fi or Netflix. Only 2x HDMI, so it's perfect fit someone who has a receiver.
