Specs look nice. Its actually one of the 3 I recommended for my dad to get, this one being the "oh wow, this is expensive, I don't have that much money" option.

The new LED tele's that Samsung makes are nice. They are LCD with LED backlighting for better clarity. And 240Hz I think? They come at a price, though.

I wonder if this LG is 3D ready?

The technology isn't that expensive at all, but Samsung can get away with calling it an "LED TV" which is quite misleading. There are actually LED TV's but they cost a hell of a lot more than these LED backlit TV's.

Samsung also has major problems with their power supplies... I'd stay away if I were you.

Yeah looks good, I've always found samsungs very good picture quality. I wonder why they added the extra 20hz?
