Well, a bit of an unexpected update. I had purchased the tv online through Amazon. The guy from the store that offered the tv called today, as the tv I ordered was a 2011 model and now they have come out with an upgraded one for 2012. They wanted to give me that one for the same price. I told him I had to get back to him as I needed to investigate before deciding. Once I did, I found out he was telling the truth...I even called LG directly to speak to them about the differences to make sure he told me the truth. Because it is a new release, there really aren't any reviews from people on it yet available online. Anyway, I figured since I was getting a different tv, I might as well go with a bigger one too, so I asked what the price was for the 55" one. He said $2407. I said forget it, as the smaller one (47") was only $1299. After I hung up, I looked on Amazon which is where I ordered the first one from. I saw them offered there for $1597 so I called the guy back and asked if they would match the Amazon price, and if not, then I wanted to cancel my order as I was going to order through Amazon. So, he called me back and said they would match the price. LOL!! So we are now getting a 55" one! It's like a smart phone, but is a smart tv. Can do all kinds of internet stuff on it and I guess can record on it too if I get a usb drive to hook up to it. So not sure when it will be in. Hopefully they will let me know when they ship it.
