    Maybe best 2D choice of 2010, but could be better…, July 14, 2010

    This review is from: LG INFINIA 55LE8500 55-Inch 1080p 240 Hz Full LED Slim LCD HDTV with Internet Applications (Electronics)

    First, I just received my second set from Amazon today. The first set had an issue on the inside of the GLOSSY glass screen. I couldn’t tell if it was a thread or a small crack in the screen. It obviously wasn’t supposed to be there, and Amazon swapped it out for me. I’m on my first couple hours on the second set, but I haven’t see the same issue with the second set yet. This does support a couple other reviewers suggesting quality control may be an issue with these sets. This contradicts the weight of the TV suggesting it should be very well built.

    The TV is stunningly simple to look at. There isn’t a lot of extra bezel or showy manufacturer’s name plates. I love this, as I’m usually driven nuts at having to look at a constant advertisment of a product I’ve already purchased. The “LG” that lights up at the bottom when the TV is turned on, can be set to be off when the set is on. This effectively means in a dark room (as mine is), the ONLY thing you see on this TV is the picture…exactly as it should be. The only exception is a small set of lights along the bottom that are only powered during power on and off to inform the viewer of this.

    My general impression on the picture quality is mostly very impressed. I’m not a display expert so I’ll only state what I notice as a slightly more “techy” than average viewer. These sets do seem to have a screen uniformity issue. Large and bright, white or very light colored sections of the screen will show light horizontal bands. These bands are light, but can be distracting depending on the viewer. It seemed to get better with more hours on the first set, but it could have been the firmware issue. Either way, know that if you watch a lot of content containing mostly white screens, you may want to look at another TV. Some people claim to not be able to see this. Others state they see even more of it during panning scenes. Perhaps there is some difference from one panel to the next. Either way, I have seen it on two sets, so anyone looking at purchasing the set should expect it, unless there is an update (software or hardware) to the set at some time.

    I looked at a backlit/local dimmed set like this for one big reason though…CONTRAST. Buying this set to watch solid bright screens would seem to be a waste. Where this particular set really shows it stuff is in the black level it can achieve. Movies are beautiful. I thought my old RPTV had a nice picture, but the sharpness and clarity of the 55LE8500 really put my old set to shame. As mentioned above, when you turn off the LG logo, all you see is the picture. Even if there is letterboxing, you will only see the picture. The rest of the screen will be as black as the bezel, and in a dark room, you won’t notice it as letterboxing at all.

    Colors are vivid and natural looking. The settings from the factory are pretty decent, but count on using the two extra ISF settings that can be customized to your liking. Having a knowledgable Tech to come over to properly set up the TV would be wise if you can afford it, but it’s not neccesary to achieve a nice picture. There is even a built-in menu system to aid you in doing so.

    Summing it up
    Pros:
    Awesome blacklevel
    Sharp picture
    Great colors
    No flashy labels or lights to be bothersome
    Automatic updates if you connect it to the internet
    Tons of access to change viewing settings
    discrete codes for most anything you might want for a customized remote.

    Cons:
    screen has uniformity issues
    possible quality control issues
    maybe a bit too heavy
    screen is a bit too glossy
    no 3D support

    Overall, this is probably the best 2D TV released in 2010. If you can control the lighting in your room, and you don’t watch lots of source material with large patches of very light scenes, this is the TV for you. Amazon is a great source for the set, but know the wireless media kit was offered free with the set last week, and the price has been changing dramatically (down and up and back down again). I gave it 4 stars because it could have been a bit better, and probably should have been.

    I had my 55LE8500 delivered last Wednesday and after spending some time with it I know I made the right choice for a new television. The picture is really stunning when displaying HD programming. Bluray titles even more so. I am also extremely happy with the quality of standard def programming, ie non hd cable channels and avi files.

    The black level performance is amazing. This tv has full array LED backlighting with local dimming and does not suffer from clouding or flashlighting problems that are present in other products.

    The glass front is both an image improver lending a crystal clear look to the picture, but it is also very reflective so you will need to be able to control light sources in your viewing room. For me this was not difficult, however, if you have a room with many large windows and also lamps it could be a challenge.

    You may also enjoy the internet features available after connecting the television to your network. You can update the firmware when available, there are movie choices from Vudu and Netflix and many more options.

    This product is an expensive item, but the build quality shows and the display technology is among the best out there this year. My first choice had been a Panasonic 54VT25 plasma; its screen is not so reflective, but I am worried about image retention and burnin so I went with the LCD.

    If you want one of the best HD displays and can control the light sources in your viewing room, you won’t regret owning the LG LE8500.

    Got the LG55LE8500 TV about 3 weeks ago. So far I am very happy with the TV. anything HD looks great and blu ray is just amazing. black is black on this tv and colors are quite accurate. as great as this tv is, it does have its cons. analog cable tv does not look very good at all on this set. the screen is a borderless glass screen which can be quite reflective during dark scenes especially if you have a very well lit up room. also you will see some horizontal banding(lines) across the screen on bright blue background scenes at times. some people are going to be annoyed by this, others wont care or even notice it. overall, this tv is supposed to be the 2nd best model of LGs LED tvs and it lives up to it. its not the cheapest of TVs but price compared to equivalent Samsung models, its well worth it as far as build and picture quality go.
