Pros: Contrast is amazing on this TV, when all of the lights are off and the scene in black, you cant even see the TV on the wall.
Cons: Screen is very fragile, LCD panel is extremely thin and is not set tight in the frame. Take care when wiping the screen down, it feels like a thin piece of plastic floating in the frame. My first TV that was sent to me, the screen was completely destroyed in shipping.
Other Thoughts: When I bought this TV I got the LG WiFi Bluray player with it. 1080p video with the LED native dimming looks amazing. I am not a fan of the 240hz, it seems to make TV and video look fake and cheap but video games seem to look great.

Pros: I think this tv is absolutely stunning. The picture is phenomenal. I've seen this tv next to other LED tv's and I like this one best, especially for it's price for size. It also has some advantages, such as a full array of LEDs, not just edge. Another thing I like is the screen has a matte finish. This is great so that you don't see all the distracting reflections of lights and windows in the room. And, it's just a brighter, richer, deeper picture than other LED tvs, though all of the LED tv's look better than any regular LCD. I tweaked the image settings some from the default based on an online article I read, and now the picture is even better! I wish Newegg would carry the 42 inch version of this tv too since that would be a perfect size for another room.
Cons: I wish the frame around the screen was matte as well, though it does look good and almost no one makes a matte frame tv anymore. I don't know why... all the reflections of lights and windows really take away from the picture. Minor thing... can't complain otherwise.
Other Thoughts: I got a Blu-ray player that is also LG so they both work off the same remote which is nice. Also, I set the player output to 1080p/24 mode and set the tv to Real Cinema mode to match. Also, I tweaked the calibration, mainly to adjust out some of the blue tint from the greyscale, and now the picture is just incredible! Very happy, at least for this price range. Sure, there are a few (very few) slightly better panels out there, but the improvement is marginal and cost much more than these. Not worth paying double for me.
