    Lost the Panel Lottery…twice, December 10, 2010

    I had VERY high hopes for this TV…i bought it from Amazon and the first TV was shipped with prime (UPS delivered) and the box top was opened when I received the unit. It appeared it had been a return, as the inside styrofoam was somewhat broken up…but this review is about the TV, not the delivery service. Picture Quality was not good, and I realized I had a received non-IPS panel (check the AVS forum on it or google “le5300 panel lottery”)…it turns out that LG uses both IPS and non-IPS panels in their models below 42″. Now I’ve seen people on here get the IPS panel in this 37LE5300…but I wasn’t so lucky. The large, white sticker on the box read 37LE5300-ASUDxxx…which means the unit was a non-IPS model. Had the sticker read ASUWxxx…it would have been an IPS panel…which is a top of the line screen. I returned the TV (amazon customer service was top-notch) and they overnighted me a replacement unit.

    Turns out the replacement unit was another AUSDxxx model and we refused the delivery…I don’t want a crappy version of an amazing TV, that’s not what I paid my money for. I’m very pleased with Amazon’s amazing customer service though, but I’m extremely disappointed with LG and the way they conduct business. It’s a crapshoot if you order online, I realize that now, but you couldn’t beat the price at $699.00 with free two day shipping. Now the TV is at $[…] but it doesn’t make sense for me to buy it, knowing I’ve already lost the panel lottery TWICE. I’m really disappointed with my experience, but I know Amazon is not to blame here, just the TV and their company. I’m happy for those customers who received the IPS panel, because they actually got what they were supposed to be paying for.

    This is my first flatscreen TV. I bought the TV based on 4 specific features: 120Hz refresh rate, the LED backlight (and resulting power savings), the ability to play video files from USB, and 24P Real Cinema feature. I’m glad I made the purchase. Setup was easy, with only 8 screws to attach the stand to the TV. The unit is stable. I’m impressed by how thin the TV is. All the front lights can be turned off. The screen is a matte finish (no reflective cover). The TV doesn’t have networking capability, but I wanted to buy the best TV I could afford and then use a Blu-ray player to provide the network interface.

    I didn’t know much about HDTVs a week ago and what I learned after about 8 hours of research and reviews is that the picture I actually see on the screen is heavily dependent on the source signal and the many different conversions the signal may go through (frame rate, aspect ratio change, deinterlacing, etc.) before it actually gets to the screen (the result of not feeding it a pure 1080p HDTV signal over an HDMI cable). I was really frustrated over looking at TVs in retail stores because doing comparisons side-by-side, I figured, was useless unless I knew what the original source video was and whether or not all the settings in the TV were set right. I ended up buying this TV because I figured it would give a great picture so long as I fed it with good source video. So far, that’s true.

    Right now, I only have a DVD player and a USB hard drive connected to it. My cheap little $20 DVD player outputs in 480i or 480p. The 480i signal has less jaggies on this TV than 480p. My guess is that the deinterlacer in the DVD player is low quality, so the 480p signal fed to the TV is not so good. I’m confident a 480p signal will look better once it’s coming from a decent upconverting DVD player or Blu-ray player. All my anamorphic widescreen (1.78, 1.85, and 2.35) DVDs display great with the TV set to 16×9. 4:3 TV stuff (like old X-Files videos) display properly too. DVDs are clear, crisp and smooth.

    I’m really impressed by the ability to play videos from a USB drive. So far I’ve played .avi, .mkv, .vob and .divx files up to 720p quality and file sizes between 500 MB and 2.1 GB. (When I hit the Info button on the remote, it looks like most of my .avi and .mkv files are encoded as MP4 and H.264, if that helps.) Windows .wmv files do not play. Quality is beautiful! No stuttering or pixilation. One problem I’ve faced, however, is the audio and video getting out of sync on some videos after about 20 minutes of play (the video starts to lag behind). I’ve been able to re-sync it by pressing stop and play. (Maybe it’ll get fixed with a firmware update? Or maybe it’s a problem with my files?) By the way, USB videos can be resumed from where you left off if you press stop or if the video stops. Once in awhile, videos will just stop on their own, but I’m able to start them again and they’ll pick up and play just fine where they left off. I don’t know if that’s an issue with the file, the USB drive, or the TV. Aspect ratio modes are limited in USB mode: I only get the option of “Original size” or “Full” (which expands the video to the entire TV). I haven’t had any problem yet with the “Full” setting because all my video files appear to be encoded in widescreen formats.

    The LED backlighting is adjustable, either by changing the AV mode (standard, cinema, sports, etc) or by setting the power saving feature to “Auto”. At full strength, I see some LED light vignetting at the corners of the screen when there’s just a black image being displayed. (I see the same thing on my LED PC monitors). By comparison, the shade of black present in the vignetted areas is still blacker than the blacks produced in the video.

    I don’t have much to compare it to, but the remote works just fine for me. It took a little bit to figure out how to get to all the features (especially the 24P Cinema Mode, which is a couple menus deep).

    Sound is just fine for my tastes. The volume runs from 0 to 100 and gets plenty loud enough to be too loud when sitting about 7 feet away. Sound quality is fine and actually has a pretty good frequency response range…it’s not tinny or muffled. ClearVoice does add some crispness to voices.

    TruMotion is kinda neat. It “interpolates” and inserts additional frames which really smooths out motion on any video I’ve fed it so far. Sometimes the results are desirable…sometimes not. On a “I am Legend” DVD, for example, setting the TruMotion to “Low” smooths out the video and adds to the quality in my opinion. It does add a little bit of the “Soap Opera Effect”–unnaturally clear and smooth video when compared to traditional 24-frame per second movies, so I just turn TruMotion off if I don’t like the result. On some of my HD video from the USB drive, TruMotion makes motion more blurry, so I just turn it off…

    This review is from: LG 37LE5300 37-Inch 1080p 120 Hz LED LCD HDTV (Electronics)

    I purchased this HDTV off Amazon about two weeks ago, and I am beyond pleased with it. I replaced a 26″ Vizio 720p LCD with this. The features that really drove me to this TV is the LED backlighting and the 120Hz processing. This TV has a stunning picture quality with some of the deepest blacks and great color. The 120Hz TruMotion has really gotten me though. It makes everything much more realistic, almost to a point to being scary sometimes. Watching Blu-rays with the TruMotion on the highest setting almost takes you out of the movie. It’s beyond cinematic, and it seems like I’m just looking out a window watching the actors in real life. It’s not bad by any means, and in fact, I can’t go back to not having it, but it may be too much for some people. You do have the option to adjust it, and you can even turn it off altogether.

    I use this TV currently for the following devices: an Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, Gateway PC, and Comcast Digital HD package. Gaming is great. I’ve noticed everything I’ve played so far has been super smooth and the response time is phenomenal. I’ve tried the following 360 games on it with great results: Halo 3, Need for Speed; Shift, Alan Wake, Modern Warfare 2, and Split/Second. The Wii looks a bit worse on this TV than on the small Vizio, but I imagine it’s the increased screen size. I have the Wii hooked up with component cables and set to 480p widescreen, but playing Super Mario Galaxy 2, The Conduit, No More Heroes 2 looked kind of bad. I know the Wii is not an HD console, but it’s a bit disheartening to see some of the better Wii’s graphics downgraded. Now, with the PS3, I don’t game to much, and I’ve yet to play a game on it with this TV, but as far as the Blu-ray goes, it’s been outstanding. This TV is enough to make me just skip the theater and wait for movies to release on BD. Blu-ray movies have such amazing clarity on this set, and the 3-dimensional feel is incredible. I played The Dark Knight, and the movie is so deep. With this kind of picture, I think I can wait a decade for 3D HDTVs to prove themselves more worth it to me. My Comcast HD looks nice, too. I know it’s not 1080p, but there’s no complaint. The TruMotion is great in the case of sports, and watching Braves baseball is more enjoyable due to it.

    I’m loving my TV, and I’d say traditional LCDs should be no more. LED is so much better, and the LGs are priced very reasonably. I can’t believe I got this for $850.
