Resolution & Formats
The LG 55LM9600 supports all NTSC and ATSC formats.
A huge viewing angle is the forte of plasma televisions, but the LM9600's moderate 34-degrees from center isn't bad for an LCD. It tested with a marginally wider viewing angle than the LV6700, and a much wider viewing angle than the Sony Bravia we pulled for comparison. All of them were crushed by Panasonic's plasma, but that's to be expected.
During our standard motion performance tests, we challenge each television to accurately display moving pictures across their screen without exhibiting color trailing, artifacts, or shape distortion, and the LM9600 did just that. It had absolutely no artifacts, and maintained complex moving pictures and their subtler details quite well. Hatched brickwork and faces maintained their contrast and color integrity during motion, and bands of contrasting lines kept their individuality. This is great motion performance, no matter which way you slice it.
Overall, the LM9600 tested with good screen uniformity. It had the same problem that so many televisions do, however, showing us some mild flashlighting at the lower corners of the screen during our black uniformity test, with the bezel causing a small but noticeable shadow around the edges of the screen during our white uniformity test.
