This was a recent FP deal from tigerdirect but it had a $100 MIR where this one doesn't have any hassle of rebates and get it right away for the low price :D

proppat 03-18-2013 09:37 AM

Remember that these aren't true 120Hz sets. They're 60Hz sets with "black frame insertion." You still have to use 3:2 pulldown for 24fps video. It's false marketing on LG's part.

Shakes30 03-18-2013 09:47 AM

I have the Toshiba. The picture is very good and the TV is very thin but the sound is bad even by LED TV standards.

EliteBeatAgent5 03-18-2013 09:51 AM

Good deal on this TV. They ran this at a similar price during BF.

It really depends on the seller. this is from Newegg which only charges tax for the following states. CA(7.5%), NJ*(7.0%), TN*(9.25%).

I recently bought the 55LM4600 from Costco for $699 (Sams may have been a bit cheaper). I am pretty much happy with it. I I bought a LM7600 and returned it, as I hated the slow SmartApps and changing inputs, and the REMOTE was driving me nuts. The 4600 has a dumb remote and works great.

ArmchairQB 03-18-2013 10:23 AM

I have this set and like it. Although I am having a hard time finding 3D content; Netflix does not ship 3D blu-ray or stream 3D, Amazon Prime does not appear to have any 3D movies, as far as I know DISH does not have any 3D. I do not want to buy 3D movies for $20 just to watch them one time, although I am considering doing so with Avatar just to actually use the 3D.

I also have the toshiba and I agree the picture quality is gorgeous specially after calibration and its super thin and stylish. I dont agree that the sound is bad, its ok same as most samsung lg tvs i have in my house, i cant tell the difference.

You can stream 3D movies if you have a PS3, they're a bit more expensive to rent though. Time warner cable also have 3D on demand content which I've watched on this TV. Then there's always video games that have 3D modes.

Is this 47 inch LG as thin as the Samsung ES models? By the specs, it appears so. Can anyone confirm that they are as picture-like when hung on a wall with an ultraslim mount? Thanks.

HeathAU25 03-18-2013 10:46 AM

I have the LG 47LM4600.

Overall: Great TV. Beautifully clear picture and brightness with good darks (plasma will get darker) but as long as you're not picky, it's fine.

Pros: 3D works very well. Mine came with 4 pairs of glasses. Awesome picture. Nice inch/dollar.

Cons: The feature that makes 2D images 3D isn't worth advertizing. It's kind of fun at first for a few minutes, but after that, 2D is much better. The panel is 60Hz, therefore, you will not be getting anything that looks like 120Hz. Not smart, but a smart bluray player takes care of that.

ubersanger 03-18-2013 10:47 AM

I got the 55" from Sam's at the $668 price and it is a good set. Takes a bit to calibrate, but once calibrated, it looks fantastic.I didn't like the picture directly out of the box. If I didn't just buy the 55", I would be on this deal since with tax at Sam's, the 47" would end up being $200 cheaper. I don't think I could go down to the 47" size now that I have been using the 55". It is very thin, though I don't have it wall mounted. Haven't seen the Samsung ES to compare it to. It would be even thinner if it wasn't for the humps for the speakers at the bottom.Can't comment on the sound because I have mine hooked up to my AV system.

I did the Tiger Direct deal and the rebate was a PITA. I was first denied the rebate because they said I didn't send in the UPC code. They scan everything you send and they somehow "forgot" to scan the UPC Code. So thankfully I had xeroxed everything and resent it (after I emailed them twice and emailed TG). I was ready for a BBB complaint and small claims if they f'd around. But they ended up approving the $100 rebate and I'll be waiting for my AmEx card for another 7 weeks (not a check). :\ I would have rather paid the extra $20 for this deal. (I ended up spending $8 in certified mailings to the rebate folks anyway!) The TG rebates are shady. Beware for the future.

I have a 60 inch sony nx810 and the sound is like an old a.m automobile radio, thats how bad it is. I dont think you can pack good spekers in a slim set. I recently bought a 29 inch vizio, very thin it was good but I traded up to the 32 incher. The 32 incher is about 2 inches deeper but the sound is good. FWIW these slimTvs dont have the greatest sound so you get a sound bar or external system if you cant live withit. Good Luck. Check out the avsforumdotcom. Lots of info.

Agree w/ the lack of 3d content available today after getting sucked in 2010. Some of the 3d discs arent that good anyway making the list even smaller. I get espn 3-d and its ok but nothing spectacular at all. I used it 3 times and got tired of t after a few minutes but its there 24/7.....Watched a handful of movies and that was it for my 3d experience.

LG is misleading in advertising. This is really a 60hz TV - LG TruMotion 120hz is not true 120hz, it's gimmick.

Funny story. I ordered this yesterday for $550 from newegg and they would NOT price match it to the ebay price. They told me instead that I should order it from ebay and refuse the one newegg.com is delivering.

Smart company, no wonder the country is going down the tubes.

ubersanger 03-18-2013 11:25 AM

I think if LG's passive 3D was out back in 2010 when 3D was first being pushed, 3D would have gained a bit more traction and there would be more content. It's so much cheaper and more convenient than active. Panasonic has even switched to passive for 2013 on their LED sets (Passive can't be done on plasma).

Before anyone posts about LG panel lottery, all passive 3d sets use an S-IPS panel. The FPR technology that makes passive possible is only currently being produced on S-IPS panels and only by LG since they created it. All the Vizio, Panasonic, and Toshiba (excluding glasses free) passive 3D sets are using LG panels.

If you ordered it yesterday you should be able to call and cancel the order all together unless you upgraded the shipping to 2day or something.

I bought the same TV from Costco and I love it. For $700 you get a 55" with 3d. Can't beat that man.

Do not ignore these above comments!

This is a pretty good deal but I would suggest supporting another company over LG because of their BLATANT false adverting on most of their TVs. 60Hz with "black frame insertion" looks okay but it doesn't looks as good as true 120Hz. If I buy a product that is claiming to be 120Hz it should be 120Hz.

Bad, bad BAD form LG. :mad:

(Note: I don't even like 120Hz "soap opera effect" for Movies/TV but wanted it for sports, IMO that's where 120Hz is beneficial.)

I tried that but it had already shipped by the time I called them.

As far as the TV goes, it is a great TV (I had it before and passed on mine to a local family). It has no smart features (a plus in my book), the regular remote, decent input lag (about 2 frames) and the one I had was very uniform with great color.

I would (did) buy it again (twice).

LG's not the only one to lie about this stuff. LG's is the most blatant and most misleading example, but other companies are putting out TV's with similar backlight features and using deceptive labeling to make you think they are a higher rate. LG is no doubt looking at an eventual class action suit over it so buy now and in a couple years you may get a $25 check in the mail. The class action will be better at stopping this movement by manufacturers than a few people not buying from them.

I don't even want the "soap opera effect," I just want a true 120Hz tv. People overlook the fact that 120Hz is an actual hardware spec and has little to do with the "soap opera effect" software processing. If you watch a lot of 24fps video, you want 120Hz because the TV can display the video in it's natural state, 24fps (by showing each frame 5 times in succession) instead of having to rely on software 3:2 to display the video. If you watch a lot of movies, especially action movies, you'll notice how much better horizontal movement looks on a 120Hz set because no additional software processing has to be applied to the video.

I'm not saying that 60Hz is bad and you should always avoid it, I'm just saying you should be aware of what 120Hz actually is and not be turned off because you saw a 120Hz tv in the store with that cheesy smoothing option turned on.

120Hz isn't a setting, it's a hardware spec. The setting you're talking about ("120Hz mode," "TruMotion," etc) is a gimmick, but it's totally unrelated to the 120Hz spec. You want 120Hz on your tv so you can watch the movie in it's native 24fps (24fpsx5=120Hz) frame rate without software processing to upconvert it to 30fps video to be viewable on a 60Hz set (i.e., 60 isn't divisible by 24, so the set has to perform 3:2 pulldown to show the video).

If you can, yes.

This TV is amazing, and the color is very nice. I was quite impressed with the 3D too when I watched a bluray. The "convert 2D to 3D" feature also works pretty well with certain content, not all.

Make sure you calibrate any TV you buy, the out of the bx picture was already really good, but after calibrating the color, sharpness, etc for a few hours, it's beautiful.

The TV's not truly 120hz like advertised though. It uses software to imitate 120hz to make motion flow smoother. This isn't a downside though, because passive 3D which this TV uses, only needs a 60hz display to properly work. In my opinion, this TV beats other 3D tv in the same class/size.

True. However, LG's 3:2 pulldown in their LM series is exceptionally good. While the LM4600 has not been tested, the LM6200 has and it is basically the same TV, but with the smart features added in. HDTVtest gave this comment about the Uk version of the LM6200:
"Speaking of film, we were very happy to see the LG render 24p motion without any unwanted judder or interpolation – providing very cinema-like motion. Just be sure that you have [TruMotion] OFF and the [Real Cinema] mode on to get this motion quality, though. Although the LCD panel can’t produce blur-free motion with high-motion video content, the lower frame rate of film (24fps) doesn’t pose any problems for the 42LM620T’s panel."

http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/lg...erformance

And while this doesn't specifically address 24p, there is this segment from televisioninfo's review of the LM6200, which they rated very highly overall:

"This LG performed above average in our motion tests. There was some blurring and some jagged lines when images moved across the screen, but nothing was bad enough to detract from the viewing experience. There was a little bit of color trailing when we had moving images on the screen, but when viewing a movie or TV show, it was not noticeable."
http://www.televisioninfo.com/con...erformance

Compare that to their opinion of the true 120Hz Samsung EH6000:

"There are two motion processing modes on the Samsung UN40EH6000, Auto Motion Plus, and LED Motion Plus. Neither of these functions were commendable in any fashion. The Auto Motion Plus feature suffered from the many problems we frequently discuss, regarding the Soap Opera Effect. While causing problems for film based content, it also showed significant errors in our motion tests. The smoothness of the motion was excellent, retaining very fine details while in motion, but you would hardly notice this detail for all of the artifacts introduced to the picture.

Artifacts are any part of the picture that are not supposed to be there; images not inherent in the input signal that are displayed on the screen. At the start of every motion was some crazy pixel freakout, where chunks of pixel clusters showed some entirely opposite frame. We wanted to see if this jumbling of the picture was obvious when watching content, and we saw it there too. The noise we saw in our motion tests carried over into actual content, though it was less noticeable. Once we caught it though, it was hard not to see it in just about every moving object from people waving their hands to cars rolling down the street. We turned the Auto Motion Plus function off, and it corrected the pixel freak out, but the slanting and jagged edges increased.

"Standard film content is shot at 24fps (frames per second). 3:2 Pulldown refers to how well a television scales its native frame and refresh rates to match film-based content. The UN40EH6000 has a refresh rate of 120Hz, twice the refresh rate of standard television screens (60Hz), which means that natural film content must be imbued with numerous extra frames per second in order to maintain its original appearance. The Samsung UN40EH6000 suffered a lot of flickering and jittering when put up against our 24fps SMPTe pattern, but otherwise the image maintained an impressive smoothness. The UN40EH6000's Film Mode did little to correct these difficulties, but was definitely noticeable during moving, video-based content; in fact the UN40EH6000 scored higher than average during this test--with or without Film Mode--with very little noticeable frame rate correction or lagging content."

Admittedly they spend too much of that time complaining about the additional processing rather than the 120hz by itself, but even a 120hz can be botched in execution and not any better than a 60HZ with good pulldown.

I tried a 50" LG in my 04' Accord, backseats fold down, and it didn't fit. Without the box it might fit in, but I didnt want to unbox a new TV in the parking lot.

I do not want to buy 3D movies for $20 just to watch them one time, although I am considering doing so with Avatar just to actually use the 3D.

Direct TV offers 3D broadcasting

I don't remember any HDTV accepting a true 120 Hz source.

If you want a 120 Hz display device get a monitor like the Asus VG278H.

Comcast and hbo have 3D content available for streaming. I think ESPN does 3D also. Although, I think there are a lot of "cord cutters" on SD that do not use a cable company, so my comment might not help those folks.

Other than what has been previously mentioned in this thread, I believe your only other 3D content will be through gaming.

Does anyone know much about the "cinema 3D" tech in LG enough to answer my question: Will any 3D glasses from the theater or disneyland work? So I can just stock up on these to hand out to guests that come over? I doubt I'll ever have more than 4, so what comes with the TV will be enough, but would be nice to know if I can keep those around as spares. Thx!

The passive 3d tech works with regular movie theater glasses. I have two sets of the realD glasses at home that I have used with the TV. If anyone is looking for cheap extras in more than one form factor, you can get this if you have an HH Gregg near you:
http://www.hhgregg.com/lg-6-pair-...tem/AGF216

Or you can find 10 packs of used movie theater glasses for under $10 off ebay.

Haha...angle123, the boxes for these tv's are pretty close to the profile of the tv now. I think we you will need to worry about is how wide across the passage from the trunk through the car will be after you fold the seats down. Most cars are pretty wide, but totally depends on how competent the engineers are for your auto manufacturer.

You know what trunk this will definitely fit into? The UPS truck that delivers from newegg. ;)

Don't expect too much help if you don't give the SDer's any information. Also...if there is a local deal that is better than this...Share! :D

Some local Sam's still have the 55" in stock for $668, but it is YMMV as not all of them have it anymore. Online it is $698 + $49 shipping from Sam's with no local pick-up option. Some Costco's also have it for $699. Everywhere else it is $850 or more.

Weeton 03-18-2013 01:25 PM

Great deal for this TV. I bought this around BF last year for 50 dollars more than this. I use it everyday (thought the 3d really is a gimick, but its nice to have) and have no real complaints. Only thing that I could want is some smart functionality like netflix or youtube.

You want 120Hz on your tv so you can watch the movie in it's native 24fps (24fpsx5=120Hz) frame rate without software processing to upconvert it to 30fps video to be viewable on a 60Hz set (i.e., 60 isn't divisible by 24, so the set has to perform 3:2 pulldown to show the video).

120hz etc is a Gimmicky Spec, is that better? just like LED.
The context up to this point was on the refresh rate, not its ability to properly do 2:2:2 / handle 24fps.

120hz is also not an indicator of how well sets handle 24fps, plenty of sets marked 120/240hz fail on 2:2:2

Nothing "native" about 24fps is 120hz.. the native refresh rate of 24fps is... 24hz.
5x sampling to 120hz is an effect added to the source, just like the soap opera effect.
It just happens to be one that most ppl appreciate instead of despise.

Me, i could give a crap about 24fps.
I watch a ton of movies, my tvs handles 3:2 just fine. I dont bother with the pure cinema setting on the kuro or my htpc.

It sort of matches the juddery experience at REAL movie theaters, or should i say native movie theaters?

That is for a lower, non-3d model, still a very good price for it though. Definitely worth a shot if you don't want the 3d.

Do I really want 120hz for games? I know trumotion sucks for the xbox (I've tried it). Should I just bite? Wife will kill me but love me once it's set up...

Wow, a considerable amount of misinformation here. I'm usually not compelled to correct people, but I should intervene here (no offense, intended) :nod:

120hz is very valuable for 24fps video. Why? Because 120 / 24 is an integer of 5, whereas 60 / 24 is a fraction. In standard 5:5 pulldown, there is no video processing on the source material, it just straight up shows a frame from the video 5 times before moving to the next one (10 times on 240hz, etc). There is no 'effect', you just get the source material as is, and there is no discernible difference than if it was natively refreshing at 24hz. If a so-called 120hz monitor fails in achieving this proper 5:5 pulldown, then it is a mis-advertised 120hz model (like this LG, and many others).

As was stated previously, smoothing interpolation like TruMotion, ClearFrame, ClearMotion, etc are what many call "gimmicks". Instead of taking the dividend of 120 and ? (60, 30, 24) and just replaying the frame that many times, the processor will interpolate the first frame and the final frame so as to create its own (non-original/intended) frames. One can see how this would be great in sports, and the picture LG displays for advertising TruMotion is a good one: a football moving across the screen. For something like a comedy, or anything with a low framerate (like 24fps), it looks distracting and unnatural to most people.

On a true 120hz panel, one cannot 'turn off' 120hz. Even if you turn off all 'processing' and even the 5:5 pulldown options, it will still refresh at 120hz (it'll just be displaying the resultant 3:2 pulldown twice). As a side note, this is why if you don't like interpolated frames, refresh rates greater than 120hz are no better than 120hz (until the day that 48fps material, like The Hobbit, becomes more common place).

And one more thing, LED backlighting is hardly a 'gimmick'. Look around at most reviews of LED TVs, and you'll see that the LED backlight counterparts to CCFL backlight LCDs almost always consume less energy. Some people prefer the thinner profile of edge-lit LED backlight LCDs, while others prefer the deeper blacks offered by full-array LED backlight LCDs (still inferior to plasmas, but typically better than your run of the mill CCFL backlight LCD).

I'd like to update my 7 year old 32" non-HD Samsung but thanks to sequester and a 20% pay cut (love ya, Congress and the Prez!), I don't know...argh! Everyone is saying the picture is good, but picture quality is such a personal thing...then again, with my astigmatism, I can't tell HD from old school 50s TV.

Oh, I think I am in. Curse you slickdeals.

so i should throw out my kuro since its only 72hz and not LED backlit ?

you can keep your ultra thin uneven LED backlights. Ill pay an extra $50 yr in electric bill.

So as far as tv "features"..
LED local dimming yes great feature..
24fps processing via repeating frames... meh.
120hz .. u can keep it.

oh and 48fps .. thats how the hobbit bluray is natively encoded right and I can get 48fps right from the player right? and most tvs accept 48fps right? useful in this discussion yes?

this tv looks like a good deal for the price.
will report back on how terrible the bluray playback is.

Bought this from newegg a week ago ($550) and love it. 3D looks good, picture is amazing, setup is simple.

Now to call Newegg in the morning to see if they'll refund some and save a return. Doubt they will, but worth a call.

I am going to need a 47" LED TV around two months from now, so should i wait for a more awesome deal to strike or i should pull the trigger now ? Any suggestions ???

ubersanger 03-18-2013 06:25 PM

What you are seeing are deals on the last of the 2012 models, 2013 models are coming out now and prices will go back up with those. However, if you don't need 3D, you will likely still find other LED TVs in this size at around the same price in a few months. The passive 3d tech looks to be commanding about a $100 premium at street pricing right now, provided the manufacturer isn't also including other features as well.

So you are suggesting, that this is a good price, and i should pull a trigger on this, as prices will most probably rise for such tv sets in coming months, right?

If you absolutely want 3D, I would pull the trigger. If not, I see no problem waiting. Or you can just wait until November for the holiday deals to start kicking in.

basssnake 03-18-2013 08:24 PM

I can't decide whether it is worth the extra 250 to go with the 55" or to go with the 47" for cheaper. Anyone want to give a opinion? Money is not a issue...i am just all about getting the best deal. I would like the biggest i can get but saving 250 is making that desire to have the bigger one a little less appeailing. Does the size of the tv make much difference in the awesomeness of the 3-d effect? This will be going into our bedroom and when laying in bed we will be about 13 ft from the tv.

55" in my opinion sounds outrageous for a bedroom, unless your bedroom is very big. A 47" TV is quite large. I have owned a 47" and currently have a 55". The 55 is gigantic, and in the living room. I've thought about a 60" but given the size of our living room it would be too big (gaudy). I personally think a 42" for our bedroom would be the max I'd go... right now it's a 32".

Size it out, dude... find out the dimensions of a 55" and try to eye it out in your bedroom.

3D works well when you're sitting at a proper distance from the TV. Based on what you said, this TV will fit your bedroom better. And for 3D, better screen size is always better for more pleasurable viewing experience.

That aside, bedroom is a space IMHO exclusively reserved for the two of you. If you invest in a big and "enjoyable" TV, you're begging for less quality time with your S/O and heading towards trouble in the future.

basssnake 03-18-2013 08:38 PM

I have a 47" vizio right now in the living room at my old house. At my new house that we are moving to, i have a 65" in the living room. I thought i would get a 3d for the bedroom and put the vizio in my son's room. I have a 42" panasonic hanging in that bedroom now, but i always like to go bigger. I am doing a home theater room with a 1080p projector and a 128inch screen.....so would the effect of the 3d be much difference with a 55 compared to a 47?

That way you're describing what's going on in your house, $$$ shouldn't be a concern. Go for the bigger screen if you really care about 3D option, wherever in your house.

In my house, bedroom is the one room the TV only serves the function of a quick and convenient display so we can get the news or a quick laugh from J. Leno before sleep.

basssnake 03-18-2013 09:16 PM

Well, i went ahead and ordered the 47. I decided that 250.00 difference is quite a bit and since i am going to have the home theater setup and have a 65inch toshiba (not 3-d) in the living room, i have those areas to watch movies "big" and figure the 47 would still give a great 3-d effect. You agree with my scenario DQue? I hope i made the right decision....lol

Both sizes are big for your size living room. 47 may be better for aesthetics, but if you like big TV's, aesthetics aside, go big or go home!

I used to have a slightly larger space with a 50" plasma and it looked big in the room, but I still wanted a bigger TV. It's a balance of what you want and what your significant other/wife/roommate wants (if you have one). On issues like this, it's better if you live alone.

netstroller 03-19-2013 01:14 PM

When it comes to size, it's a matter of personal preference, best thing to do is go to a store and walk off the distance with different sizes TVs and see what you like. I like BIG for example, 55" at 6 feet away is no problem for me, but probably too big for a lot of people.

I used "Picture Wizard" option under Settings -> Picture -> Expert 1/Expert 2 (The exact names may be a bit different). This wizards guides through different options and let user caliberate for best quality. I did it and now the picture quality is a lot better than before.

Check out channels 103-105 on DTV. Two channels of free content and one PPV. The free stuff is pretty good. Some 3D IMAX movies, lots of nature shows and some new programming. The other free channel is ESPN with reruns of 3D sports broadcasts.

I'm in the market for a new bedroom television. I tried to think of a reason not to buy this, but couldn't. The reviews online seem to be outstanding. This is by far the lowest price I can find anywhere online. I pulled the trigger and got one!

My TV just arrived today with a big hole punched in the box. I wasn't there to receive and the person that did didn't notice it (...). It ended up having a very smal spot of discoloration on the screen from whatever hit it. Now I'm in the 2-3week long process of getting a refund.

The TV is such a good deal though that I just ordered the replacement separately so I didn't have to wait weeks to get a replacement.

Depends on your opinion and confidence. LG is a reputable, reliable brand. The limited data out there from consumer reports, etc, seems to indicate a failure rate of about 4% on average for TV's from the first tier brands. Most of those failures do occur in the first year of use and would be covered by the manufacturer. The data only goes about 3-4 years back though, but usually after the 3-4 year mark, you would be out of the extended warranty anyway. While LED backlighting is relatively new, the LCD technology itself is now rather mature so you really are not dealing with uncharted territory. Also consider that Extended Warranties are set up to be mostly profit. The fact that LG themselves are willing to extend the warranty for an additional 2 years for the measly price of $48 indicates that they have a high degree of confidence in their sets. The vast majority of the time, the extended warranties are not used, but if you end up in the very small minority that has a problem, you will be thankful you had it.

Ahhhh been thinking about this for days. Is this still slick with sales tax?

InDebtFromSD 03-21-2013 02:16 PM

Got this TV with the sound bar for $549.99 + tax from best buy... awesome picture for the price! The sound bar is decent enough I guess but I could do without it.

Don't forget many CC's offer a doubling of the manufacturer's warranty up to a year. So 1yr = 2yr. (most Visa's, some Discover Cards added it last year +, and Amex cards, as well as a few MCs).
From lots of reviews AMEX seems to be the best (easiest to deal with & best response).
Discover is pretty new @ it so IDK how they are handling it.
Visa seems to be a jump through hoops but workable.

Got the TV yesterday. Looks great.
Can someone pls suggest which extended warranty one should buy..
Got an email from ebay to get the extended warranty from either Geek Squad Smart Care or
SquareTrade Warranty.
Is this really an extended warranty i.e. 1yr(original manufacture warranty + additional extended warranty) or the extended warranty will overlap the original manufacture warranty.
