LG 55LW980 review

 

LG's 55LW980 is the first TV we've seen from the company to use its new Nano technology. This is a filter that's placed between the screen and the LED backlighting to reduce haloing and banding problems associated with LED screens.

Great passive 3D performance; Excellent HD and SD picture quality; Impressive Internet features; Fun Dual Play gaming.

Some backlight haloing; Plex streaming software needs work.

It's pricey and the backlighting isn't perfect, but the LG 55LW980 produces stunning standard and high-definition pictures, has great Internet features and its passive 3D performance is excellent.

LG 55LW980T

 

LG makes passive 3D tech a genuine high-end proposition with its new 55in ‘Nano' TV.

Superb 2D and 3D pictures ; Sumptuous design ; Huge multimedia support

Evidence of jaggedness over small objects and bright edges ; very limited vertical 3D viewing angle ; Input lag a potential problem for gamers

In working hard to make the 55LW980T its best 2D TV to date, LG has also managed to serve up the most persuasive argument for passive 3D yet. So much so that we can fully imagine the set appealing to serious video enthusiasts as well as ‘casual' users.

effect of 3D depth control

 

I watched a National Geographic program and it looked like it was raining on my carpet. This TV also has the ability to turn 2D to 3D which is great. You can also vary the 3D experience using the depth control, I have kept it just over half way, and...
