LW5600 is awesome

Hi I'm glad you asked about gaming with LG Cinema 3D LW5600.
I have that model and my experience with it so far has been amazing.

3D glasses: they're cheap, lightweight and battery free so if you're the type of person who plays game for a long time, you'll be glad that you got LG Cinema 3D. (Other 3D tvs use shutter glasses, which are heavy and you have to charge them) These glasses are very cheap so if you like party games (Wii has a lot of them like Olympic and Mario party stuff), it's very affordable.

The picture quality is really good too. It has high fps rate (frames per second) so all the actions are really accurate and you don't miss a thing. (This would be very important if you like shooting games, action games, fighting games, etc) LG Cinema 3D is also flicker free and crosstalk free, which is good because I can't imagine how annoying it would be to have flickers and crosstalks when I'm playing games.

Here's my warning: don't play games for too long or your mom/fiancee/wife etc will get mad at you.

i have it too

i own a LG LW5600 and I'm happy with it. I play games for
many hours on the weekend and the battery free glasses are really useful. I don't
have to charge the battery every now and then. I also like that it's flicker free
and crosstalk free. On my old 3D TV (a Samsung model) I used to get flickers
and crosstalks. This hurt my eyes and made me shoot at wrong things while
playing shooting games. This never happens on LW5600. You should definitely go
for LW5600.

yup i got it

Yeah, thanks all. I got a LW5600 last week. It's been cool
so far. You are right about it being flicker free and crosstalk free. This is
my first 3D TV so I dunno what it would be like to have flickers and crosstalks
but I can imagine how annoying that would be. I was surprised that those 3d
glasses are so cheap. I had a house party and I got like 6 more 3d glasses and
it was less than 50 bucks. This is a cool tv thanks for your replies.

Have I missed something?

I find the delay very annoying. I can push & release a button before there's any response on the screen. That's about a half second delay.
