    Outstanding!! — I bought this product after looking at quite a few different brands. I was not let down. The 240Hz is perfect for sports and fast moving shows with a lot of action — picture quality is A-1, sharp and very clear and does NOT blur with fast and quick action. Has many different functions than a person can use to change the format that he or she likes best. The menu interface is very EASY to use and gives many options with input, picture, and audio settings. A real great feature is “clear voice” which sharpens normal speach and makes hearing easier especially with a lot of background noise. Also if watching a DVD the TV remembers the settings that are programmed into that particular imput even though they may be different from the settings while watching normal TV channels. A person doesn’t have to re-program each time you watch a DVD or other optional component.
    For myself for what I want–A really great HDTV choice

    I jumped on this TV pretty quickly, great size, great technology, and good reviews across the web. The picture quality is very good, the blacks are mediocre but overall a great looking picture and a great looking TV. I am a huge movie fan and watch lots of Blu-Ray movies and so the ability to play Blu-Ray’s in 24p mode was a huge plus for me. I started watching a few movies, and left the 240hz setting on low. This setting, while some may like, I really did not care for. It introduced a lot of artifacts in the film. Often when the camera would pan quickly around different subjects it would create a halo looking deal making it look like there is an invisible forcefield around different objects. The frame interpolation makes things look really smooth and create a soap opera effect or video camera effect to the movies. This made it feel like I was no longer watching a movie and this was a big time no-no for me. So I started researching the TV some more.

    The 240hz is a refresh rate so that has nothing to do with adding frames. The frame interpolation is another thing that attempts to add frames that did not exist before to create a smoother look to the image. The problem lies here in the way LG decided to implement this technology. To get the benefits of having 240hz and reducing motion blur, you must turn on the dejuddering frame interpolation also. There is no way to turn on one and not the other. The Samsung and Toshiba models have options to turn the 240hz on and off and the frame interpolation on and off SEPARATELY.

    Now I must say, for sports it made it look amazing, but since my primary use of a television is to watch movies this was a major downside and I ended up having to return the TV because the 240hz motion plus pretty much ruined the movie experience for me. Some people may like it, but if you like to keep your film viewing as true to the original as possible you may want to think twice and check this TV out in a store to see if you really like this mode or not.

    Sports were great, video gaming was good, and the picture quality and extensive picture control are all amazing on this TV, but that one setting ruined the experience for me.

    Had the TV installed today and learned during the installation that it does not support the Bose cinematic sound system I bought. This LG product only supports optical input. My tech installer had never seen a TV that only had an optical input requirement. I’m happy with the TV’s picture so the sound system is being returned. Considering I bought both at the same time through Amazon it would have been nice if there had been a non-compatibility warning from them… Have had the TV for a little over a week now. The picture is amazing. With some of DVDs it feels like you’re on the soundstage while they are making the movie
