Ok. I bought a 47 LM7600 @ best buy on sale for $1600, which isnt pretty pricey for a 47 incher even if its a 2012 model. Anyway I coughed up the dough and took the TV home. I unboxed and hooked up the TV pretty simple.
Man was I suckered.
The TV has the lamest remote EVER. Magic motion remote? Are you kidding me? You have to re-alighn the remote EVERY 30 seconds and if your using at even the slightest angle, the magic cursor is off the mark. I tried to use the browser and tried to type in http://www.gmail.com and it took me over 10 min. Very crappy remote.
The TV was even worse. Im not sure what type of settings best buy had but the "factory demo" looked decent so i got the darn tv. When i brought it home and tried out the 3d depth control, it made me so darn dizzy i nearly threw up after 10 seconds of watching. The screen was also too darn glossy when the TV was on and off. I couldnt believe it. But then again, the smart TV is just toooo slow. It took over 30 seconds for the youtube app to load, and once the app loaded the videos took even longer so i couldnt watch a single darn video and i know im sounded really mad right now which is becuase i got back from best buy like 15 min ago. I returned the darn TV and now ima get that samsung es one i forget the name.

Personally, I don't feel "Smart" features, or 3D should have any bearing on selection of a TV.
Quality 2D material is the proper way to judge a display.

I also agree with Slim. I don't really feel for smart features in TVs.. All brands I've encountered with so far have flaws so I think it'd be pretty much the same even if you decide to go with Samsung. As for the remote, you can't please everybody. You should just take some time and get used to the remote. Re-aligning the remote is really not much hassle and it's much faster to type with it than the standard button remotes. and I don't understand how the 3D depth control made you nearly throw up.. Just adjust it to the setting that makes you not throw up.

Maybe when you tried the depth control it was still not comfortable for your eyes. It's also kinda weird because you'd feel that way if there's too much flickering. As far as I know LG TVs are flicker free. If you felt that way with LG, I guess it's not wise to get a Samsung. They use active 3D technology and it really causes a lot of flickering.

I dont care what JWELLSGAYING or anyone else says about LG. I've been saying it for years, you cant underestimate them just because they had some poor products when they were known as lucky goldstar.
If this TV doesnt look good to you, i dunno what will.

In bestbuy, I tried samsung's touchpad remote, i didn't like it. It took too many steps to change the pages or hightlight a link. For comparision, I also tried LG's remote, it actually worked smoothy to load the pages or enter an app.
