    Good TV, great gaming monitor I saw this tv at my local Brandsmart and was impressed; it had perhaps the best picture among standard LED tvs. An LG rep said the LB5800 series use an IPS panel with full array LED backlighting.

I suggest not getting hung up on…

All is well. Those things are pretty standard now so nothing big.on to the MAJOR FLAW.Started watching some movies, and i notice something strange. During scene transition from brightly lit to dark scene, the tv DIMS and BRIGHTEN; globally (the entire screen). It does this every time. It dims to the point where you can barely make out any details in the dark scenes. As you know with movies, details is everything in darken scenes. It’s purposely done so for you to focus on the first, i thought it was…
