55" LG LED 1080p 120Hz 3D HDTV + 4 Pairs 3D Glasses ($720) walmart.com, free ship

Seen this most other places including walmart for $799. Best deal so far was Costco (straightforward) and Sears with SYW points (not so straightforward).

Currently TD has it for $849, no free shipping.

Bought mine from costco couple months ago, love it
great panel with lots of tweaking options.
3D effect is pretty good, specially for this price point

I dont believe that this TV has gotten so much of attention for NO REASON. This is a very OLD model, very much basic. Still $720... LM6200 which is a way better TV was available for 799 at Frys few days back. Right now 4700 with soundbar is available for 799 (not saying that 4700 is a good deal) but just wondering how people make their choices, just look at 55", LG /Samsung , first digit in the price is 7. And go for it blindly. Thumb up the post and mislead the others who are in the market and dont really know much abt television market.
I'm in the market for a 55-60"... any recommendations on a slick deal?

Yes... which is why I say in my other post to basically consider the trumotion and 120hz both to be lies on this tv.

Technically LG has said that what they mean is that this tv has an image quality rating of "120hz Trumotion" as some kind of term for something that does not mean the panel is 120hz (kind of like how samsung has Motion clarity Rate or something like that).

Trumotion is LG trademar name for their method of motion interpolation.

As far as I am concerned that whole badge is a lie as there is nothing about the image on this tv that is functionally different from any 60hz non trumotion panel.

The strobing backlight has been shown to be pretty much entirely non effective.
agreed

My understanding is that you have to buy the LM7600 model to get a true 120hz panel

How effective it is in the non 120hz stobing backlight 60 hz version..??

Well...I had a LM6200 for a couple of weeks...I bought for $519 at the sears outlet
It seemed to have better than some of the 60hz TV;s in motion processing

I sold it on CL after I found a great deal on an LM7600

The 7600 "supposedly" has a 120hz panel...and it looks better in both black levels and motion control to my eyes

I dont think the strobing backlight is completely ineffective

However I cant say that I have ever compared a 60hz( non tru motion) LG TV to one that has a strobing backlight with the simulated 120hz

I am also in the market for 55-60", I am just holding off from last couple of months.
Few good deals that I seriously considered,

1. LG LM 6200 55" - $799 at Frys
2. LG LM8600 55"- $999 at Micro center (went out of stock in couple of hours -In store only)
3. Samsung 6500- $970 approx (Should have gone for it)

I should have gone for either either of these, 6200 and 6500 were in my hands but thought of waiting for LG8600 or at least 6700 and up as they have LED+.

If you are not in rush wait for a better one, right now there is ntohing in the market that I can consider of buying. few tips,

Frys weekly deal gets updated at 11.30 PM on every thursday (so far Frys is the best store to provide the best deals on latest models-as per my research)

Best buy weekly deal gets updated at midnight Sunday morning (not 100% sure need to check)

I believe I just got this exact TV from Costco for $20 cheaper about a month or so ago on a slick deal. Great TV! Unfortunately they didn't give much thought in the way of wall mounting when it came to the connections but with some 90 degree fittings I made it work. The next gen of this TV has all the connections facing downward or to the side, nothing straight out the back, for those of us who want to mount this on the wall with a low profile mount

I thought the LM6200 was the same panel but with smart features and wifi? If so it's saving $80 if you don't care about those features.

Also free shipping on this which sometimes the Frys deals don't have.

I dunno I think this is pretty good for the price, maybe not the smokinest deal on a 55 incher ever (which I think has to go to the BB Samsung clearance model some where getting for under $400 or something)

Testing showed that the backlight strobes alternately top and bottom.

If it strobed left to right it COULD improve panning motion clarity however top to bottom would only improve vertical panning motion clarity.

In testing there was no measureable improvement in motion clarity however the TV did seem to handle 24p without pulldown associated judder introduced... so SOMETHING happens, but not much.

You are correct - 55LM4600, 55LM5800, 55G2, and 55LM6200 all use the same panel according to the parts lists in the service manuals (and it is a full panel with backlighting integrated, not one of those where manufacturers can add their own backlighting). All of them also use the same power supply. It's also known that all of these, other than the G2, use the same processor. Unless you want the smart features, there is no basis in the statement that the LM6200 is better than the LM4600.

this is what one will get more by paying 80 extra bucks,
Wi-Fi, smart tv, magic remote, dynamic contrast ratio of 6M:1, 1 extra HDMI port and 2 extra USB (that i dont really care) and rich design, all for 80 extra bucks.

well if you look at the market price for both there is a difference of almost 300 dollars. i dont know about others but i will anytime pay 80 dollars more and get 6200.

I'll agree with all of that except dynamic contrast ratio. There is no practical difference between the two in contrast since they use the same panel, backlighting, and processor. It's a completely made up marketing spec to try to differentiate the two model lines. In actual testing, they will come out with same relatively low contrast. The physical panel itself is rated by LG Display as being a 1600:1 panel and most testing of these models have come in from 750:1 to 1500:1 depending on testing method (the downfall of IPS panels). My point was from a performance standpoint, they are the same, However, if you want or need the features, you can't go wrong spending the extra for the LM6200.

I already have a Roku and an Xbox 360, so I don't need any smart TV features. My parents bought this exact model a few months ago, and love it. IMO its a good price for a 55", and it's definitely going to be a welcomed improvement to my 48" projection.

I'm sure I'll find out soon enough, but does anyone know if this will work with the 3D DirecTV has available? Looking at their website, it only shows a few select models, and this one is not listed...

I have never had directv so I can't confirm personally, but in reading the forums, they are compatible as many people have used them with directv. It seems like directv hasn't updated their list for a couple of years.
