if i had the choice i would not buy this set again, the picture isnt great, the LED light bleed is horrible and the passive 3d is like watching standard definition. what hi-fi clearly paid off by LG
Also, input lag on this set is rediculous, if you play call of duty, prepare to get owned. even pc mode/game mode isnt enough. just avoid at all costs
Sorry you're not happy with your TV, but that's a totally 'rediculous' allegation.
This Set is now 849 with free BD 3D player LG660, representing excellent value, if you sit the recommended distance back from the tv (2.4M) it looks superb in 3D, we use on PS3, which instantly recognised t as a 3D display, with 3 kids Active glasses are a no no, all the active sets we looked at we're very good but none of use liked the flickering if anything other than the screen was viewed through the glasses, we was told that an active set should be viewed like the cenima, I.e in total darkness, being a family this is not for us so we took the plunge and went Passive, we've had no issues with the tv and everybody who has seen it, friends and family is very impressed, even my dad and he moans about all tv,s lol, if you want a well priced tv for family viewing with great 3Dcapibillities, 7 pairs of glasses which if broken cost £2 to replace and don't require charging or syncing, then this tv, which although doesn't excell in one particular area, it is just very good at everything then get it on your list and if your not bothered about a smart TV then go for the 550 model, exactly the same but not smart and save yourself around £100
see if you can audition both the samsung 7000 and the LG and then decide.... 40"LG.......46"samsung..... no contest.the LG in 3d mode looks like an ordinary SD TV,you can see the lines.bought the samsung for the lounge and the lg for the bedroom.you CAN see the difference...but wearing active glasses in bed is a no no.
And if you buy it at PC World before May 18th, there's a further 7% discount with the voucher code 7OFFPCW, bringing the price down to £1302.
As explained in the review, when we tested the set it wasn't yet in the shops, and that was the price we were given; now it has appeared in the shops we mention, the price is higher than we were led to expect.
However, today (14/05/11) it's being advertised at £1399 at Currys and Dixons – and indeed PC World (hardly surprising as they're all part of the same group!)
why is this tv now 1799 when what hifi review it in march group test it was 1299.

A great amp with some notable musical skills, but it loses a star compared with its better-performing, better-specified rivals
Another admirable and attractive soundbar from LG, pipped to that fifth star by fierce competition
The large screen and punchy picture are highly attractive for this price, but you’ll have to forego the smart features and Full HD resolution
