- It's not 1080....it's 720p. Not an issue as it's very difficult to tell the difference with a small set.

- As others have noted, this set is supposed to have an IPS panel. I'm not sure about that. I have the set in my bedroom and it is centered on my dresser across from my bed. From that view the picture is great. When I move over to my desk next to my bed the brightness goes down. The picture does not look washed out (i.e. the colors), but the picture is brighter straight on than it is at, I'd say, about about a 35 degree angle off-center. From my experience, IPS panels are good to go to almost looking horizontally at the screen. The unit has a swivel base, so that would tell me that it doesn't have an IPS panel (why put a swivel base on a set with a panel that provides solid viewing angles?).

- The picture on this unit is very sharp. No back light bleeding detected. It makes SD content look a heck of a lot better than my old set.

- Hooked up my PS3 and there was no detected input lag.

- Lots of picture adjustments to get the picture where you want it to be. Also has a "picture wizard" that helps you calibrate the picture in case you don't have a calibration disc.

- Lots of these sets have sub-par sound. This set is not home theater quality but the sound is very good.

Overall, this set is worth the modest price I paid ($378). The only sticking point might be the drop in brightness at the off-center viewing. I'm going to keep it a few days and see if it's something I can live with and how it looks during the day with more light coming into the room.


You are wrong.

And it is an S-IPS panel. I used a printing glass to magnify the pixels and they show <<<<<<<<<. It is a S-IPS set.

It is also 1080P full HD.

They are not going to put a S-IPS panel on a 720P set.

I would be very suprised if it is true, I have owned scalers and not one can make any 720P image look this good. Crap in crap out no matter how much you try to improve it.

not sure what you are seeing, but I can look at the set from the very side 12ft away and the image does not diminish.

But I have heard of LG playing the panel lottery. Trust me, it is an S-IPS panel, do a search and educate on how to tell the difference. A simple digital camera will magnify the pixels for you.

Trust me - it will receive 1080p but it will "process" the image to 720.

If this is true, why when you press the info button on the remote it states 1080i source on the display ?

I have a hard time believing they would keep the wrong info on the LG site knowing it is false advertising and incorrect.

This picture is too detailed to be 720P, even scaled. No way!!!

BTW: I change my cable box to a native 1080i output and source (channel) the the LG tv info states 1080i.

I change my cable box to 720p output and source (channel) and the LG tv info states 720P.

There was a huge difference in picture quality between the two, no scaling can make 720p look this good.

Again, crap in crap out!

If I am wrong then technology has come a long way.


I will also check out my bluray player on it and see if it indeed does 1080P 24/30.

So, I come home to check the maual for any info.

Who knows who is right, all I know is this tv does not look 720P to me, nor does the info on screen while having the cable box resolution changed to test.

But, the manual states to connect to PC to change to resolutions on pg.44

It mentions model that are 1920x1080, the 32LV3400 is not mentioned. Then it states other models: 1360X768

Only problem is one models they mention in the manual as 1920X1080 is the 22LV2500, that is not a 1080P HDTV , it is a 720P HDTV. So there is alot of info that is incorrect with LG.

I still think it is a 1080P set as LG states it on their site and so do other sites I have found, namely the one I posted above from asia.cnet on new LG models for 2011.

I have seen upscaled HD, it does not look this good and although it is a smaller set, the image blows away my 47" LG LD450 LCD HDTV.

Vague info for sure from LG, so who knows for sure.

im not a fan of lg but for a monitor manufactured in july 2011 i would say its most likely a 1080p monitor.
make sure you use the right connector. it may only be 1080p thru hdmi or your vga cable can only do 1600x1200 max.

my experience with a few monitors.

Agree, and why produce another 720P "Exclusive" to walmart when they already carry non-Exclusive 720P LG HDTV's for less ?

Does not make sense to me to carry something similar and only LED for more. Most people shopping walmart would rather save $60.

Just my opinion, but I do think LG has inconsistent info online. I think it would be an issue people basing a purchase based on incorrect info on their site.

Here are my settings:


Backlight: 50

H Sharp: 55
V Sharp: 55
Color: 60

Dynamic Contrast: Low
Noise Reduction: Off
Digital Noise Reduction: Off
Noise Reduction: Off
Black Level: Low
Real Cinema: Off
Edge Enhancer: High
Color Temp: Med

You might think Edge Enhancer on High is alot, but it does not diminish, but improves the sharpness nicely on this set. I had a Sony I kept it off as it ruined the picture, not the LG as it looks great on high. Cable signal can make this worse, not all cable signals are the same in everyones house.

Another note, if the backlight on 50% seems low to you, give it a few night to adjust. I have this tv in a room with windows on all the walls and very bright and this setting has no issues during the day and looks great at night. I think being LED helps being able to use a low setting. Still, on any tv it is not a good idea to have it high, it will lower your backlight hours/life span of the tv.

Contrast any higher will wash out peoples faces.

I hope this helps you.
