I bought the 47LM6700 off Newegg roughly a month ago for $700. I'm currently on my third one after having problems with light bleed. The first two had really bad flashlighting in the top left and right corners respectively.

My current one, which I just received today has almost zero light bleed (just a touch on the left edge, but it disappears with local dimming on low), though it does have one stuck/dead pixel near the center of the screen. I can't see it when sitting back at a regular viewing distance (anything farther than like three feet) though.

I've seen quite a few people complain about light bleed issues as well over on avsforum in the thread for this TV. Just a warning to anyone looking at this TV. LG's quality control seems to be rather low, so you may wind up going through multiple TV's until you get one that you're happy with. I'd say if you're looking at this particular model, go with a reputable site that has solid customer service just incase you have to do a couple RMA's.

For what its worth I think LG makes some best-worst tvs you can buy. In terms of design, UI, ease of use, and overall all value you get a great bang for your buck, thats really the only good thing about their products.

However, the build quality is really iffy from tv to tv. I went through 3 LG tvs, till I got one that had really small amounts of light bleeding and flashlighting. Worst yet as my tv aged (its going on 1.5 yrs old), I noticed the refresh rate is off on some of the pixels. This gives zooming out and zooming in and panning shots in moves to have a weird checker board effect and ziggy line effect (in 2d and 3rd). Also on a totally white scene you can tell some pixels are "whiter" then other pixels. I did the LG hack and unlocked my TV's CPU/GPU settings and made it the best version of the 120HZ 47 inch display (the display and CPU are the same, LG just locks somethings out on my model), Also on a side note, don't unlock an LG tv and up the specs unless its been confirmed the CPU/GPU and capacitors are the same between a cheaper model and a more expensive model as you can really mess up the tv. I will say the THX settings and local dimming really helped, but the picture still leaves a lot to desire. I really love LG's 3d tech as it doesn't make me dizzy or give me eye strain (its really great tech for gamers), but I will say other then its 3d use its a really subpar 2d tv. I wish I spent a few hundo more and went with a sony or a samsung.

While not officially announced, it was said on the Arnold Fan Page that Predator 3D will be released later this year... Man - I couldn't be happier. I LOVE Predator! I wonder how many more back-catalog releases like this we can expect?

you and me both. This is great news, now if only running man could get converted. We can only dream...

I know you may not have liked uncharted 3 but uncharted 2 is a far better game in terms of campaign. I thought it was a lot more fair and less frustrating. Also the 2nd game has far better build up and momentum (except for the last boss battle).

The 3rd one started off strong but got weaker and weaker as the game went on. The only part I really liked a lot was the boat level where everything gets all crazy and inverted. I also liked the trippy parts too. How the game opens up really excited me but it just falls flat from there. The story was good though/maybe even the best in the series. This was the most Indian Jones feeling of the 3. Overall, It was a weaker game IMO. I liked the additions to combat but the shooting mechanisms seemed broken to me, even after they patched it.

I strongly encourage you play GOW3, or the newest release once out. GOW3 had such crazy scale, you literally fight giant titans, massive gods, and characters that change combat styles, appearance, and aggressiveness as you dismember them with your weapons. I haven't payed an action combat game nearly as good as GOW3.

Can it be used to play blurays? I know some headsets can't be used with bluray. If so I'd so be down.
