Hello All!!!

I have recently brought LG 42LM6700. I though I would share with you guys.

Initially I had Tata Sky+, but the SD picture quality was such a let dowm. Now I have brought the Tata Sky HD+.

SD picture quality is nothing to talk about however HD viewing is pleasure.

My laymen thoughts
PROS:
Super HD picture quality.
Runs almost all format of movies via USB and DLNA.
I loved playing movies through the Media plex server software running from my laptop. no lag what so ever and option to choose the picture settings.
Excellent passive 3D performance.

CONS:
Low audio output
Excellent wi-fi connectivity
SD picture quality is unbearable more so after watching the HD channels..
At times the software is slow to response
No on/off button on magic motion remote leading to battery drainage even if not used and also causes unintended pointing of remote towards the TV to do unintended things..

The TV was brought on first week of August. Since installation and above picture, the tv's firmware had been updated automatically once. The current firmware version is 04.00.14.

Black is deep more of dark gray if you compare it when the TV is switched off, but it did not bother me, I am very happy with the TV.

I have read tons of reviews about picture bleed, non uniformity and cloudiness.. but trust me I did not notice any visible bleed or cloudiness.. in fact to my layman eyes the reproduction is quite uniform..

The other issue for me apart form the low audio output is that the set suffers from motion blur and judder (only at times) during fast motion.

When I went out to purchase-I looked at Sony, Samsung, Panny Plasma-all other things were more or less equal for me except for the 3D technology..
No doubt the LG's passive technology is far superior and quite economical.

The bottom line is I am quite happy and satisfied with my decision to go with the LG LM6700

How come "Excellent wi-fi connectivity" falls under "CONS"?

@dinesha, the first pic (stand by with Lg logo) shows plenty of light bleed. But must see this in person to judge. Difficult to test this in brightly lit showrooms.

DId you try watching 3D content ? How would you rate the response time of the item?

As mentioned previously one of the main clincher for the TV for me was the passive 3D technology.. I have tried both the SD and HD 3D content through USB and the demo content from the LG's 3D world and i have quite impressed with the out come.

Well the pic apparently shows as if there is quite a bit of bleeding and cloudiness... but that may be because of reflection & focus issues added by some clumsy and haphazard picture taken by me using my galaxy note..

I have checked again but not noticed anything..I have taken some fresh pictures but it does not do any justice to the actual picture..

You will not notice much issues due to screen size. I had a 55" of same model. If you see blur and judder at 42" then imagine what would it be like on 55".

What made you select LG instead of the superb Sony HX850 at similar price? I understand if it was 3D, but at 42" you'll be soon tired of it.

Congrats and enjoy the 3D.

Check my ST50 thread. I posted a pic where there is no light bleed. I will post more pics. But as far as I know, there is no light bleeding in plasma. But in absolute black mode, TV will show very minute even light, i.e., panel won't be like when switched off. This is not light bleeding but an indication that plasma is charged.
