LG 47LM7600 Review

Here is the honest LG 47LM7600 Review by Marty Gillis. Dean that already purchase and use this LG 47LM7600.

I am posting this at the top of my review to make sure it is seen. The very latest firmware update available for this LG TV has addressed a great many shortcomings, both large and small, in regard to picture quality. The two most noticeable and important are as follows:
The much talked about 24fps bug is fixed. The 7600 now displays 24fps from your Blu Ray player with ease and provides silky smooth motion on horizontal pans with no blurring. Even watching a mediocre transfer the motion handling is as good as being at the movies now. The better the transfer and the more horizontal motion, the more you will notice the improvement. It is MAJOR!
ALSO it appears to my eyes that the algorithms used in the local dimming function have been rewritten or augmented and take this LG quite a long way towards eliminating vertical banding. (although some discs have banding of their own) As soon as I updated the TV 2 days ago, the difference was immediately noticeable and a welcome sight!
ALSO: Dirty Screen Effect appears to also be greatly reduced and my slight corner flashlighting is almost completely gone. ALL THIS FROM JUST UPDATING to the latest firmware update!
If I could give a number to it, I would say the overall picture quality has been improved by a good 25 to 30% and it was VERY good to start with. HATS OFF TO THE ENGINEEERS AT LG! End of update*************

I am VERY pleased with this LG ! I am writing this review to help you decide whether or not this TV is worth upgrading to from you current set, how things look, sound, work, what needs improvement and what is totally cool!

Interested? Then read on McDuff! But first just a bit of backstory………
<<<warning: Long but pretty detailed review>>>

I purchased the LG 47LM7600 to replace my 2 year old LG 47 LE5400 which is now ‘old tech’. I wanted a larger screen and I wanted better overall picture quality. The 3D , Web Browser and Apps were not a consideration for me, but this television IS fully loaded and I am glad to have them.

This is my 2nd LG television and I was 90% happy with my LE5400 but the flash-lighting and screen uniformity issues were nagging at me with every Blu Ray I watched and finally I decided it was time to move on up! I have a 3D Oppo Blu Ray player that had never seen a 3D disc and I thought this was finally the time to jump in.

Also, I watch A LOT OF TV folks! Home theater is my passion! I knew what I wanted to see from this new LM7600 and was very anxious to find out if I had made the right choice. (and with Amazon’s 30 Day no cost return policy you are pretty much able to do this with no worries)

You have already seen pictures of this television. It looks even better in person. Build quality seems nice and solid and with or without the included stand it is a joy to behold. While no longer featuring a matte screen, the reflective aspects are nowhere near as bad as my Kuro was and actually adds to perceived picture quality. The 55 inch with stand comes in at around 55 pounds which is safe weight for most TV stands. Mine is sitting on an OmniMount Echo 63-Inch Video Table and seems perfectly stable and safe with a very good viewing height for 3D content.

The stand, while heavy plastic designed to resemble metal, is extremely easy to put together and is the most stable of any TV stand I have ever had. It went together quickly and is solid as a rock. I wish it could tilt forward a bit as well as from side to side, but otherwise I like it very much.

Be aware the HDMI jacks are in the side and close to the edge of the TV. If you don’t want to see cable sticking out from the side of your 7600, then get some right angle HDMI cables. Speaking of HDMI, I have noticed the HDMI Handshake time is VERY quick compared to any other TV’s I have owned. It ‘plays nice’ with all my other equipment, including an iScan Duo and Oppo BDP-93.

ON to the testing and my initial conclusions!

The first thing ANYONE want to know is “HOW DOES IT LOOK” ?? Right out of the box the 7600 gives you a pretty good picture and after even the most basic calibration for contrast, back-light and brightness levels you can dial in a real jaw dropping image! I started with Digital Video Essentials for my rough adjustments and then moved on the the Speer and Munsil Blu Ray for more precise settings. For the technically challenged I would recommend the Disney Worlds of Wonder Blu Ray for easy and effective basic calibration. Detail is noticeably enhanced from my LE5400 as are color accuracy and screen uniformity. Bothersome flash-lighting has almost been eliminated with just VERY small amounts peaking out the corners when no program material is being viewed. Truly, it hard to believe this 7600 is edge lit at times and it’s performance is more than adequate to satisfy anyone other than the totally hard core purist that will tolerate NO flash-lighting. Motion handling is smooth and not artificial looking. I used Star Wars, Star Trek , and Lord of the Rings all on Blu to put this to the test. While no current LCD/LED television can do motion as well as a top grade plasma or the Sharp ELITE, this is so close to being there that I can happily live with it and not suffer any buyer remorse. The more I watch, the more I have come to believe that motion is rendered so close to perfect that any real world improvement would be negligible for most viewing conditions.

Unless you can afford a fully backlit LED set with full local dimming, this TV can give you the best picture for your dollar. It is bright, sharp, detailed and pops. The LED Plus DOES make a huge difference, coming from the LE5400.

I was just watching a PAL Columbo DVD (an old 1971 episode) and was thinking to myself about how great this TV can handle standard DVD resolution. A good trick is to engage the Mpeg Noise reduction to the “LOW” setting (found in the Picture options sub menu) and make sure your super resolution is turned on. I have been able to get near HD results from standard DVD’d doing this. Great digital tool box in this TV and at no extra charge!

Bottom line for PQ? I AM TOTALLY STOKED! If I could afford a new ELITE from Sharp I would buy one, but this LG television is at the top end of my price range and I feel it is a very good buy for my needs, providing a real solid upgrade in picture quality. The on-board processing upcoverts even SD to a whole new level, with 720p looking better than I ever thought it could! Classic movies on TCM have taken on a new visual level of quality now. COOL!

Also, LG’s passive 3D tech really works. The picture is sharp, bright and involving. The glasses are lightweight and easy to replace. The 2 to 3D conversion is a little strange, but more than usable for a lot of different things. The kids are gonna love it and that includes 57 year old kids like myself! My 82 year old Dad liked watching ESPN 3D on MY set so much he now sits in front of his OWN Brand New LG Cinema screen 3D TV.

Audio is another area that has been improved and VASTLY from my LE5400. It is nowhere near as tinny or weak sounding and more than good enough for casual viewing when I don’t wish to fire up the 5.1 system. If you purchase this set, be prepared to at least plunk down a bit more for a decent sound-bar or home theater in a box system, and with a full blown 5 or 7.1 system connected you will find yourself in your own home theater. The optical audio output will pass 5.1 Dolby Digital (the display on my Denon amp confirms this) The media player and software/hardware has been updated to include DTS core as well and THAT is a major improvement. However be aware this is ONLY the case while playing back ‘local media files’ via USB. All other audio is passed out the optical jack in STEREO ONLY even if your DVR or Disc Player is sending 5.1 ! Bummer! Seems the hardware is there, but the software is not allowing it to happen for some reason. Best to run your audio directly to your amp and bypass the TV in that regard for now. The only file formats I have not been able to play are FLAC and ISO files. Even videos that my Oppo/iScan Duo combo have trouble with are easily rendered going straight into the LG via USB. VERY NICE!

Connectivity is good with this set. Besides the prerequisite 4 HDMI connection you also get a dedicated HDMI audio return channel and an optical audio output. LG has bumped up the number or USB inputs to 3 and you can now connect a USB hub for all your external USB drives, one used for apps and one more for good measure. If your computer doesn’t have HDMI you still get an RGB input. You can still connect via component video (although it is being phased out now) so your old gear is still viable. You can use the onboard wireless for your DLNA stuff or wire up to the LAN port. The combinations are pretty well thought out and there are enough options to accommodate most anyone’s equipment. I feed this display from an Iscan Duo which processes all my external devices but have my Fios HD DVR connected directly to the LG to eliminate an extra HDMI handshake and the LG video processing is totally up to the job.

Where I live we can not be reached by over the air signals so I can’t comment on how the onboard tuner behaves. The scaler in the TV is pretty good and again it is much improved from just 2 years ago for upscaling to 1080p from your DVR or USB file source. The first time I tested the on-board media player I was floored by the image quality. I didn’t expect it to be so good!

Playing media files from DNLA or a USB drive is effortless with a nice well thought out on screen file browser. I have found one of LG’s strong points is the sophistication and functionality of their operating systems. I like them! A LOT!

The main complaint I have about this LG is the Magic remote. I DOES work and with practice it gets easier and then it gets pretty quick, but I would prefer LG would ship this with a standard remote in addition to the Magic one. I use a Logitech Harmony One for everything except cursor functions and for me that is a better way to control things. Rather than go with a wireless connection, I connected the LAN port to my Fios router and get a pretty snappy performance from Apps and the Net Browser. When I say snappy, I do NOT mean fast! While featuring the same interface as the next two models up, the 7600 sports only a single core processor and as such between the TV OS and the apps the overall app/browser performance is sluggish. I think some extra RAM would clear things up and am hoping for a firmware update that will allow an external USB stick to be used as such. Otherwise, there is a very good chance that you will be disappointed in the performance of the both the apps and the browser experience. I do not use Netlfix anymore and can’t comment on how well it works. I plan to attach a camera for Skype and will post as to my results at a later date. (I am notorious for updating my tech reviews) ALSO, the included manual and even the online manual are just NOT very comprehensive and leave a LOT to be discovered by trial and error. If you are tech savvy at all this will be a non issue.

So is this TV a safe bet? That depends how obsessive compulsive you are about your video quality. If you are willing to trade a very small amount of black level for what is most likely the best 3D around and and don’t mind a semi reflective screen, then YES for the money this LG 7600 is a killer TV. It looks good, sounds good, has plenty of features, options and is upgradable via USB. I can play all my media files easily, MKV’s and Xvids play and look great, SD is much improved and HD video is out of this world plus the LG’s user interface is well thought out with some pretty mature software implementation. 10 years ago a television that looked this good and had this high level of function would have cost 20 thousand dollars or more. This is truly a great time to be a movie fan!

I am guessing a very large percentage of buyers will be totally happy with this TV.
As of now, I have ZERO buyers remorse and can recommend this LG with confidence.
If any issues arise or I find new things that are notable I will edit my review.
Cheers! Marty G

***A word about Flashlighting, Vertical Banding, Clouding and Dirty Screen Effect. These are the artifacts or ‘defects’ that plague ALL edge lit LCD/LED panels. Some brands are better than others for keeping them at bay. The exact same model of TV may vary widely from unit to unit. My TV may have more artifacts present while another may not.

Basically you need to evaluate your own TV for what you might consider an ‘acceptable’ level of any or all of these things. By the very nature of an edge lit displays design you just can not escape this, but manufacturing tolerances vary greatly and although you may need to possibly return one or more units you can eventually end up with one you can live with.

My 7600 has some VERY slight flash-lighting in the top left hand corner. On horizontal pans of light background material you WILL see Vertical banding of varying degrees. I have found the more local dimming you use, the worse it will get. I also have SOME dirty screen effect (Google it) and just a BIT of clouding depending on the program material.

Just be aware that ALL these things are inherent in Edge Lit displays. If you just can’t live with them (in my case, hardly ANY but still….) then you need to consider a plasma or a full array backlit LCD/LED not an edge lit TV. Also, THOSE types of TVs ALSO have problems, just different ones. (halos, screen uniformity issues, stuck pixels, buzzing, excess heat, burn in, etc.)

BOTTOM LINE: With the exception of possibly the new Sharp ELITE models ( more than 5k to start) there is currently no such thing as a perfect display. Do not set your expectations higher than the technology will allow for. I am VERY pleased with this 7600. It offers an increased level of fine detail that was not present in my Pioneer Kuro Plasma from 4 years ago. The color accuracy is REALLY good and motion handling is the best of ANY TV I have had so far. (I have had 6 including Plasma, DLP, CRT and LCD in the last 7 years)

A word about adjusting your picture: As a rule of thumb, RESIST THE URGE to put your backlight to 100! The mistake many people make while trying to get a good picture is not understanding how to properly find the ‘sweet spot’ on their TV settings. You want to leave yourself plenty of ‘headroom’ and not clip the visual dynamic range and end up with everything looking positively radioactive!

Put your backlight down around 50 and crank up the contrast to around 85 , and play with your brightness control so that things are neither too dark or washed out. The more brightness you use, the more color intensity is needed, but adjust them in SMALL increments and test them on all types of material. Your cable box/dvr will need a different setting from your Blu Ray player. Every device sends a differently calibrated signal with different ideas of what constitutes a ‘nominal’ value. I STRONGLY urge you to invest in the Disney Worlds of Wonder, Digital Video Essentials or the Spears and Munsil calibration disc. Do the best job you can , then let the electronics ‘burn in’ for around 100 hours or so and do it again. It is a tedious process but you will be rewarded with the best picture quality on your block and a much more enjoyable viewing experience! I am currently enjoying overall the BEST picture on ANY HDTV I have ever owned and can thank the Spears and Munsil disc for much of it.

**As always, there ARE a small % of tech failures in electronics and purchasing an extended warranty would be a smart move as no matter how expensive something is, electronics DO fail and at the worst possible times.

Review by K. Valentine “Endless Ideas”

This is a great TV!!! Good looks, excellent picture quality, and Simply SMART!.

I bought the 47LM7600 from Amazon with a special deal which included a LG Sound Bar (NB3520A) and six pair of glasses. I paid $1660 for the package. I also bought a Sanus VMF308 full-motion wall mount ($98 thru J&R) and a LG BD670 Blu-Ray player ($119) both from Amazon.

This TV will replace a 37″ Sharp LCD flat panel I purchased in 2005 with 1 HDMI input and 1 DVI input – the rest component, S-Video and RCA-jacks. That TV is going to our bedroom. I also purchased a 7.1 SONY surround sound receiver and built a complete system in 2005 that I’m still very happy with.

I was considering the Samsung 46″ ES8000, but the reviews on Amazon weren’t too favorable. The LG I bought and the Samsung were the only two I considered as I didn’t want to exceed the wall space I have which is 42.25″ with the LG at 41.9″. I didn’t want it covering a door molding. I also wanted some sort of Internet connected TV for use with Netflix, etc.

Comments:

1. This TV is a real beauty with a thin Stainless steel bezel and a 1/4″ black border under the one-piece glass screen. Not having any bezel is really neat. It looks like the black obelisk at the opening of ‘2001- A Space Odyssey.’ Everyone who sees it WOWS over it. It has a low gloss screen finish with only a tiny red LED light indicating it’s off. The red light is off when the TV is on.

2. The picture out of the box is outstanding via the HDMI connection. I plan to do some fiddling with the brightness, contrast, color etc. The only issue I had with the set-up was it took a little while for the HDMI to work. I would get just a black box covering most of the screen but the sound was on and playing and the video was playing outside the blacked off area on both ends of the screen. Then after about two minutes – the full picture appeared and it has performed flawlessly ever since. I’m using a Time Warner Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8240HDC DVR box to run the unit. I guess it had a slow handshake with HDMI and the TV.

3. I liked the package as it included the LG NB3520A sound bar with the wireless subwoofer. The 37″ Sharp it is replacing had a built in sound bar at the bottom of the TV and it gave excellent surround sound. I will agree with the reviewer who said the speakers are very good. And they are at lower volumes. When the sound is cranked up, the small built-in speakers sound tinny -you just can’t get great bassy sound out of a space that small. At least these TV speakers fire down rather than to the rear. The sound bar unit had no problem setting up and registering with the wireless subwoofer. It was a painless process. It also comes with a remote that has a section designed to control the LG TV. You can turn it off/on and adjust the volume. My wife is electronically challenged and this will make it very easy for her to use. The 7.1 system and all the bells and whistles were too complicated.

The only thing I don’t like about the sound bar is the black GLOSSY plastic housing. I wish it were a honed or matte finish which would reduce the reflection. It is hard to injection mold a piece of plastic that long without getting some waviness on the surface. It’s not a big deal but picky, picky on my part. I’d be happy if they sold it with an acoustic fabric on it to reduce the reflection. But LG and some other manufacturers seem to like the industrial look of the 6 `bare’ speakers.

I used LG’s template to install the sound bar under the TV with a recommended 4″ space. My wife and I think it’s too far so I’ll remount the sound bar so it’s just 1″ or so below the TV. This is a personal taste matter – like hanging a picture at what height is the correct height?

4. Magic Remote Control. This thing is really clever – like the Wii remote. It is very easy to use. One reviewer said the thing doesn’t aim correctly – as the axis of the remote and where the arrow is on the screen don’t match.

This is not a big deal to me as this remote is based on RF – radio frequency – and not the almost ubiquitous IR – InfraRed requiring a clear line of sight. You can put it behind your head and move it around and the arrow is always somewhere on the screen. You have to shake it slightly to get the arrow to appear – so if you move it slowly the arrow won’t appear at all. I like it and its so easy to use!!!

5. 3D and the glasses. The Samsung has active 3D glasses and the LG has passive glasses – the latter a la movie theater types. CNET Reviews have favored active-type glasses better – but a recent study by some `experts’ on the CNET website are now saying passive is just as good or better than active shutter glasses. To me the active glasses would be somewhat of a pain as they need batteries and might be more delicate with kids.

The 2 >3D button works and is fun to watch. I didn’t really want a 3D TV – but the high-end ones only come that way. After 3 days – I now find its fun to watch in 3D – and the very young grandkids love it trying to pluck things out of the air!!

6. Happy surprise

I hooked up the TV to the LAN via the recommended wire connection. That was also a flawless process and I jumped onto Google and it worked perfectly. I only played with it for 5 minutes. (I couldn’t figure out how to make it show full screen – so back to the manuals ;-).

But the real Happy Surprise was getting a message in Windows Vista that Windows Media Player could connect with the LM7600 TV and play music, videos and photos on the TV. It asked did I want to set this up? I said with some trepidation…. Yes …and it said connected successfully. But no other comments or dialogue box was present.

A while later, I went to change inputs and used the Magic remote to bring up all the inputs – and there was the name of my PC as another available input. Holy Cow! So I selected that input and it brought up the folders for photos, music and videos. I selected a home video and it played. I was really impressed!

7. The second Happy surprise….

This morning when I turned on the TV there was a message from LG that there was an update to the TV firmware and did I want to install it? I said yes and off it went. It gave me a version number of the successful update and I guess I can go look that up to see what it does.

I also hooked up the BD670 Blu-Ray player with a LAN corded connection rather than use my router.

8. The wall mount – Sanus VMF308

I had the Sharp on a fixed wall mount I installed in 2005. `Fixed’ meaning I couldn’t pull it away from the wall. In the past, I lost the HD connection via a HDMI – DVI adaptor as the newer cable boxes came with HDMI only and not DVI. So everything I watched for the last 2 years was via Component (analog) and less than HD. If I had to take the TV off the wall to use the single HDMI port – I would have had to remove most of the cabling (and there was a lot of it with component and RCA jacks). I have the TV mounted on a wall in the family room, and the cables go thru that wall into my study with all components in a wall cabinet. I use a Niles IR Repeater to get the signal to the various components in the study. But it’s a clean and neat setup with no visible wiring or components. So for the new TV I wanted to get a super-slim wall mount that could glide away from the wall if I wanted to add/remove/change cables.

I found a Sanus VMF308 mount that’s only 1.1″ thick when flat, yet extends 8″ off the wall. It also tilts left, right and down and slides left to right, and right to left about 4 inches. That’s enough room to work on cables. It’s sold by J&R Electronics thru Amazon for $98. I think that’s a great bargain compared to the brick and mortar stores.

It has the VESA 400 bolt pattern for this 47″ TV and works great. (Edited: April 11, 2012: This wall mount model WILL handle 55″ as that also uses a VESA 400 bolt pattern. This is per the owner’s manual.) I decided to hacksaw away a ½’ by 2″ part of the bracket that goes on the TV as the power cable would be squashed by the mount. This could be easily remedied by using the range of spacers Sanus provides – but I wanted it to be as close to the wall as possible.

This setup has the TV and mount a total of only 2.5″ off the wall. It is wonderful.

In summary I am thrilled with this really slick and SMART TV. I’m a retired engineer and I’ll post updates as I discover things.

Hope this is useful to everyone!

EDITED April 19, 2012

I uploaded two photos of the sound bar location below the TV. The LG template has it 4″ below but it was too far in our opinion. So we reinstalled it with just a 1″ space which we like better. See photos.

LG LM7600 Series Calibrations and Picture Settings
Calibrated Picture Settings: We utilized to 2-point white balance control to get close to D6500K without having to go the full 20-point white balance route. After much testing with the LED local dimming feature, we decided it was better left to the Off position. The Picture Mode settings and calibration controls for the LM7600 are very complete. These settings still allowing plenty of backlight for a well-lit picture. You will find these settings show a bit more luminance and better dark shadow detail than the standard Cinema setting. Turn the backlight up a bit for brighter room situations.

Following is a little run down of the different settings:

Standard – lots of blue push – vibrant
Vivid – uses too much contrast and everything else – especially edge enhancement – not recommended
Cinema – Very good setting for movies
Expert 1 and 2 – Can be programmed by the user
Game – Specially designed for better gaming and the dual gaming mode setting for fast action
