Conclusion
This is a very average TV that can only ever hope for a very average score.
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.
Pros

Very wide viewing angles for an LCD TV

+

Low input lag (which isn't only good for gamers)

+

Very good default image settings, which is rare!

+

Excellent 3D: low crosstalk, less visual fatigue with passive glasses

+

Four pairs of 3D glasses supplied

+

3D glasses are light and comfortable
