Great TV, I got JL to price match this deal and the TV arrived last week. I have nothing but praise for this TV.

Might go for this if JL price match

The black and silver 660T is around for £669 and is the same bar the colour, so if you want to save £40 it's still a beautiful TV that, stylistically at least, more than stands up to the frameless Samsungs, though this silver one is also gorgeous. Other than a little LED backlight bleed like they all do, it's a cracker of a set with the easiest 3D viewing I have had, much better than Panasonic (ST30) and Samsung (D6900) with zero flicker and zero crosstalk. Even the motion is pretty good for LED, handled the Olympics with aplomb.

Will JL definitely price match?

Seems expensive compared to the 42lm620t which is £499 at richer sounds/ John Lewis price match

As far as I can tell the only difference is Wifi is built in to this (£25 for a dongle) and 1 extra pair of clip on 3d glasses (£1.50 from fleabay)

Not voting as no tech expert and there could be another differences but just want others to be aware.

Incidently for those wondering about Electro centre, I bought a 42lm615t for £479 off them about a month a go. Their service and delivery was great start to finish. Had to call them on the agreed delivery day as needed to pop out for an hour, they were more than happy to give me the drivers mobile number to see where he was on his round and what time he was likely to arrive. Thta's better than most in my book.

This is a good price for this model.

However it is identical to the cheaper 660T except for the colour and style of the surround and stand.

Also the 620T is identical apart for the following:

Different and thicker bezel and different stand
No WiFi
No magic wand remote
One less set of glasses

So if none of the above are important or if you can get a cheap WiFi solution then the 620T is the better price.

However if you want the 670T then this deal is the best that I can find and so should be voted hot.

620T also doesn't have local dimming but that is not a biggy. 660/669/670T is a far better looking tv as well.
Edited by: "craigy18181" 23rd Aug 2012

Was looking at both the lm620t and this model side by side at richer sounds and I would definitely say that this was the better looking of the two picture quality wise, plus the screen on this set was edge to edge with a slimmer bezel.

Saw the new LG tv's today at my local electrical store. Was amazed at how good they look. Blew away both similar priced Sonys and Samsungs. Really are some of the best looking t'v I have ever seen. Like minimalist works of art.

Issues wih 24p playback apparently, thats why its not on the spec sheet.

"The e-mail from trading standards has stated that LG are "unable to support 24p material in its current state due to a hardware/software flaw." And those customers who purchased the product when 24p was an advertised specification are allowed a full refund.

What Trading Standards also said to LG is even more significant, they have been advised to ensure that their “future advertising was accurate for that TV/range” and this not only implies that a fix for 24p issues is unlikely, it has also forced LG to remove any mention of 24p support from their website for the LM range of TV’s."


neowin.net/new…rds

Bad Times for LG, I nearly bought the 47LM660T couple of weeks ago but I am fussy and reading that put me off.

NO VOTE from me as I consider these affected LG TVs a pile of TAT and would therefore not buy one however for the less fussy this may be a good buy.

Having checked the release info for the latest Firmware Update it seems pretty clear there is no 24p fix just yet and I doubt it is likely to be fixed.


Had a reply from JL yesterday they were going to price match, however the reference number they gave me refers to an LG LM669T, not this TV

24p plays just fine on mine, impressively so in fact from both BD and HD-DVD with long sweeping panoramas and tracking shots.

That is beautiful.

I wouldn't care if it was a bag of crap, you wouldn't have to turn it on to be entertained by it.

beaware that 3d resolution on these passive TV,s is not as good as activeTV's

I bought the LG pk350 tv 17 months ago and it broke last week, LG didn't want to know, luckily I bought it with a credit card that gave 12 months extended warranty do fixed for free, LG tvs apparently suffer with power supply problems.
I wouldn't buy another LG product after my dealings with them.

1) how does this compare to Sony 40HX853 (40 inch) for under £750.
2) how does this compare to Sony 46HX753 (46 inch) for under £700.

suggestions please

All manufacturers have an initial negative response to situations similar to yours ( probably company policy ). However a few well worded letters and if needed a solicitor letter normally does the trick. All companies hope that if they stone wall, customers will give up at first hurdle.

Heat for this deal......price match with JL and its an absolute bargain!!.....don t think about it, get the price match and its a steal.

Wonder if the 55" will start coming down soon...

This is indeed a thing of beauty. Couldn't get if for the bedroom, I'd blush getting undressed in front of it.

I would love a panel similar to this, but without the 3d. Due to my dominant eye, the whole 3D movement has done nothing but make me bitter.

It has !! 2 grand when launched now 1300 quid, you are dreaming if you think you will get it for 3 figures.

Worth noting that the medialink app on these hooks into Plex server on your Mac / PC and gives a near XBMC experience built in (pics, metadata, etc). There's also the 'regular' DLNA player too, plus Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Knowhow and (I think) Lovefilm. It's also got built in WiFi.

Set up correctly (i.e. with all the extras like Trumotion and NR off) it gives a great sharp image. Mine does have some backlight bleed though my front room is bright so the backlight is pumped up - drop it down and it goes away. PQ isn't quite up with plasma, especially with SD Freeview, as is the case for most LED sets to be fair.

And yes, it looks amazing (660T, black version), by far the most beautiful set I have ever owned and no where near the most expensive.

not a bad company to deal with although some of the reviews did make me wince - just bought a plasma (LG60PA650T which is superb!! £745!!!!! ) delivered within 24 hrs and its amazing - i liked the look of the OP's TV but plasma is for me and my needs - G
good find - heart added

Have to buy a 46inch telly under £900, by next week so how does the below two compare to the OP:
1) can get Sony 40HX853 (40 inch) for under £750 (and same 46inch HX853 for under £900)
2) can get Sony 46HX753 (46 inch) for under £700.

Will be using home theatre speakers, so audio quality comparison can be ignored

suggestions please

The Trusted reviews link measured 100ms input lag ... Not a good choice for gaming then!

My PS3 feels fine in game mode with the 'features' off. I read it takes it down to around 39ms.

Ah fair enough then, unfortunately trusted reviews cannot be trusted on this occasion.

Does anyone know how this compares to Panasonic Veira TX-42ET5B? This is priced at £679 at Richard Sounds. John Lewis refused to price match it on the grounds that 5 years guarantee is not included by Richer Sounds
richersounds.com/pro…t5b

Isn't there some sort of issue with these TV's and 24p? In that, they don't have it?

Cold... it's not 7,680 by 4,320 pixels

Just back from buying this telly in John Lewis and have seen this thread.

Those of you who have price matched with JL, do you live close to Electrocentre? I assumed they wouldn't price match if more than 8 miles from them.

The offer I purchased had a free 3D Bluray player too so may not be like for like for pricematching.

40" and 42" tv's are so small now, very popular in the earlier days of LCD / plasma, I wouldn't personally go smaller than a 46", hence have the 47" model of this tv. Even in relatively small british living rooms 42" is a bit weedy these days, go bigger or save longer :-)

Same LG panel inside, slightly fancier Panasonic tech driving it if reviews are to be believed. Not as pretty by half though, but then that's not the best way to decide on a TV (though it is tempting).

By the way - you can get the 42LM660T (same, just in black) with a 3D Smart Blu Ray player for £699 here - HUKD link

This is a rubbish TV? Too much ghosting on 3d. Simply useless 3d I should say. And terrible terrible terrible build quality? Don't waste your money on this one.

I don't why you think this is a great tv with likes of Sony and Samsung available for same price and much better. The black levels are terrible. Build quality is pathetic (looks like a plastic toy) and 3d is the worst with too much ghosting. I tested this tv thoroughly and was really disappointed with results,

Expensive Bluray player!........I live 40 miles from Electro Centre no problem with JL price match.


JL have price matched for me, I have to pay the full amount £849, then when the TV arrives contact them for the difference returned, however after reading some comments on here I am thinking about cancelling before the TV arrives.

Would this TV be worth it at £699 with 5 yr guarantee ?
