This review is from: LG 55" Class (54.6" diagonal) 1080p TruMotion 240hz 3D Google TV - 55GA7900
Pros: See below.
Cons: All prospective buyers should be aware that "TruMotion 240hz" is not the actual refresh rate of this TV. It is likely actually 120hz with interpolated images every other frame intended to reduce motion blur without utilizing true 240hz (read: more expensive) hardware. Issues with this technology can include digital artifacts and the so-called "soap opera effect." Some people may not mind or even notice the difference, and even if you do it may still be worth the low price. However if you searched Newegg for 240hz TVs like I did, well....
Additional information is available on Wikipedia (search Motion interpolation). I am rating this product down as this is effectively false advertising. Also important to note that LG is not in any way the only OEM doing this, each of them has their own trademark name for this practice, so double-check all specifications carefully before purchasing.
Other Thoughts: The intrinsic value of this TV, it's performance vs price, etc. are all moot points as this review is addressing the dubious practice of intentionally mislabeling a product in an attempt to fool uninformed buyers looking for a good deal. Please understand that if this product was marketed as "LIKE 240hz at the 120hz price" I would not be writing this review.
