Good: OLED screen and passive, or should I say 'cinema' 3D
Comment: Looks great. I have a Samsung Omnia 7 Windows Phone with an AMOLED screen and it is incredibly vivid. People are always commenting on it. Looking forward to seeing OLED at this size...although I doubt if I'll be able get £8,000 for one of my kidneys....
LG's passive 3D is excellent. Imagine it will look even better with OLED.
Good: Super slim
Bad: Poor 3D
Comment: I would rather like to own this product however the Bang and Olufsen Beovision 7 is higher on my list. For the same money the Beovision 7 gives you the best sound. You can't get good sound depth from 4mm! The Beovision is also more aesthetically pleasing and is far more of a statement within the home. The LG does have good picture quality but the B&O is actually better for contrast and blacks. Despite this congratulations to LG on making such a beautiful product with such great design. It makes this the only product LG make that I like.
Comment: As with all new technology it is expensive, as where flat screen TVs when they first came to the market. Demand and economies in scale will drive the price down, I look forward to owning one in the next couple of years!!
Good: Pretty much everfything
Bad: Price. And why not 60 inch?
Comment: This is great tech, and something we will be watching in a couple of years time. The other great thing is so light. It will be easy to move this as well. I am currently looking for a 55 inch for my new rented flat. When I move it will be lugs ville and sweat city. This my wife and daughter could move. And better pictures. What a wonderful world! For LG at least! Everyone else is going to sweat to keep up, though Samsung have a new set out as well soon I think.
Good: crisp display
Bad: probably rather expensive
Comment: Can anyone tell me what is the point of being so thin? It's basically a sheet of glass. I can see the point of making a screen lower in weight but I never heard anyone admire a window pane for being thin.
How do you wall mount it? With 2.5mm long screws or blue-tak?
How good do 4mm loudspeakers sound? Crackin' bass?
Good: nearly all of it
Bad: cost and size
Comment: dunno why everyone complains about 3d its a button on the remote to turn it on or off, so who cares if you have the feature, i don't use 3d but doesn't mean its not handy to have to show off your tv to your mates :P. only problems i have with it is i want to keep my arm and leg when i buy it and i want it smaller, 32" or 40"/42" , so hopefully it comes in smaller sizes although i did read in one of he many articles that they are looking at bigger :S i don't think i can get bigger through the door
Good: it all.
Comment: Why do people always complain about 3d, if you don't want it don't use it. the tv is a amazing 2d tv with cost affective 3d thrown in for free ( you dont think they will do a none 3d version as it would cost just the same)
Good: Brilliant design
Bad: Probably too expensive for the average person.
Comment: Would be good providing you can turn off 3D so not get blurred pictures.
Good: nearly everything
Comment: We are having 3d forced upon us :( nobody wants it until we don't have to wear stupid glasses! :@
