Which To buy LG vs Samsung vs Sony?


Hello all.
I am on the lookout for buying a 40" 3D LED tv. the models i have been considering are the following, LG 42LW5700, Samsung 40D6600 ans sony Ex720.

i went to the LG shoppe in Koramangala and viewed the 3d demo, i was quite impressed because of the flicker free 3d specs and 2d to 3d comversion of a hd channel. but the bezel was not so attractive as the samsung model and the value he quoted was around 89k(he said he would give the final price if i would book) although on infibeam its available for 75k and moreover it does not come with inbuilt wifi. wifi dongle would cost 1.9k as per the salesman. the magic motion remote is also packaged with the tv. I did notice light bleeding at the corners when i asked him to put it to black bkg but the salesman said its normal. is it so?

The samsung D6600 was quite a beauty although i did not view the 3d. the 2d colors were absolutely impressive. and more over it has inbuilt wifi. but the 3d specs is not included in the package and it costs 4k each(absolute bummer). at the samsung shop in jayanagar the sales guy said they were giving the 2.1 audio bar costing around 23k free with the tv(tv value at 94k).minus the audio bar the discounted price was just 74k. he did not give me a final offer but said he would give one including the specs...more over the wireless keyboard cannot be used to pair with the tv to browse the net.

i have not yet viewed the Sony ex 720 properly but at an earlier date i did find the blacks were not as perfect as the samsung...

i am torn on deciding the model. please advise....

Re: Which To buy LG vs Samsung vs Sony?

What are your requirements ?
Is 3D important ? Do you watch a lot of HD content including Bluray movies and Blluray 3D ?
2D wise the EX720 is better than Samsung and LG. 3D wise LG is the best, Samsung slightly better than Sony.
And the colors being impressive on Samsung, well Samsung TVs usually have vibrant colors that are not a good reproduction of reality. So to the average consumer it would look "better" but actually isn't.
Anyways the gamma as well on the three TVs is more or less similar once calibrated.

The black levels of Sony should be equal or better as they use a SPVA panel.
Some may feel samsung has better blacks ,because of samsung uncontrollable dimming of the backlight, the moment there is a whole black content on the screen or if majority of the screen is black the backlight is dimmed.

Re: Which To buy LG vs Samsung vs Sony?

Yes, all reviews show EX720 having better black levels than equivalent Samsung and LG models. And as a result, higher contrast ratio of around 4500:1

Re: Which To buy LG vs Samsung vs Sony?

@kittu1977 sorry the 40D6600 was at 84k minus the 2.1 audio bar(just 10k minus on 94k) and the LG LW5700 at 75k.

@avmaxfan well watching hds and ripped blurays is the foremost activity. 3D's on the lg does look better because of the lightweight spectacles.

I visited the Croma at Jayanagar on Friday and heck the salesman there would not even let me have a look at the samsung 3D, he kept on going on about the LG Tv. even less said about when asked about the sony model. the sony model at croma was being quoted at 74.5k

Re: Which To buy LG vs Samsung vs Sony?

i visited the jpnagar croma yesterday and the quotes for LG LW5700 was at 85k and the sony ex 720 was at 80k. There was not even one display item of the samsung 3D led tv.

At the entrance there is a 8 series samsung LED tv connected the video of people entering the shop. you could immediately notice the colors were rather not life like but rather vivid and bright. at the entrance there was reddish stand which was displayed orangish color.

The sales guy was rather not eloquent about samsung led tvs saying samsung panels are getting problems and people are complaining so advise lg or song. and one more thing he said was that 32" 3d led tvs of sony and samsung have been removed as they do not give good 3d rendering. this was definitely news to me as the websites of both samsung and sony still have the 32" models..

Well i can't say about samsung 32" 3d tv,but yes the Sony 32" EX720 has not so good 3d.Its mainly a excellent 2D tv with 3d has a feature.

Regarding the samsung 8 series its a one of the better tvs out there,you can judge a picture just by seeing them in showroom settings.

If you are buying the Sony you may well buy it from the grey market/sukh sagar mall gandhinagar.
You will loose the 1 year warranty,but you mayl be saving significantly.

No i am not saying judge the tv by showroom settings i am just pointing out the live video feed attached to the tv would show the unnatural color replication...

Re: Which To buy LG vs Samsung vs Sony?

Even I am going through the same process and shortlisted the same models. I have a mixed feeling now, but I may prefer Samsung 40D6600 over LG and soney.

Good
LG - smart remote, glasses.
Samsung - compatible with all movie formats, has an inbuilt dongle for net.

Bad
LG - Cannot play all movie format, doesn't have a inbuilt dongle for internet
Samsung - Doen't have smart remote, glasses would require battery/charge

I have a quote of 82k for 40D6600 with audio panel, CD's, 2 glasses etc and other promotions offered by the shop.Done a good bargain :-)

Regards
Gopa
