Talking of which, i've just got back from my in-store demo of the LG 42LX6900, and i have to say i was very very 725 pounds handed over worth of impressed. I had been looking into getting a 3DTV since that tech trade show around this time last year and a year on the prices have, as we all knew they would, been practically halved. good news for yours truely! The set is a 42" LED LCD and the picture looks better than my 22" Bravia, heresy! you cry. But to me, this was the moment that all those weeks reading bloody online reviews by muppets and haters, trawling A/V forums for a more tech view point and reading spec sheets came down to.
An A/V Expert From RicherSounds, Probably :)
I placed the grubby fingerprinted glasses over my eyeholes and expected to see a ghosted flickering image, thanks for the paranoia online reviewers! but what i saw was porn of the ocular kind, the image was bright, sharp, solid and had no ghosting, i felt like i could reach out and touch the picture. i felt relief and maybe that was actual real to goodness joy deep inside my black cynical heart?
Chatting with the bearded sales guy, why are all good A/V experts fond of facial hair? the other guy in the shop had a look of the bill bailey about him.. chatting, he gave me the low down about how best to run the set, turning off the tru-motion etc etc showing the various and many options, which he agreed were mostly pointless. it does 2D to 3D conversion, it has a gaming mode for minimal input lag, the screen has a response time of 2.2ms (my current set is 6ms+) it comes with wireless rechargeable active glasses which were very comfortable and the set is 1 1/4" thick.
just got to wait a couple of days for them to drop the set off. *waits*
