Conclusion
The LG LM660T is a well calibrated TV. Picture quality is excellent in 3D, but the screen's low responsiveness and sub-standard contrast bring its score down to three stars.
The LG LM615T is an excellent TV ... for well-lit rooms. The black level just isn't deep enough for lights-out cinema-style viewing. That's all the more of a shame since the out-of-the-box picture settings are excellent and 3D image quality is first rate.
