Summary: With this TV I don't need a streamer or a computer. This TV does everything you can expect from a TV and then some! I really like it, except the sound: on medium-high volumes it can get awkwardly metallic. If you plan to use external speakers, this won't be a problem, so this is definitely good value.
Summary: I don't understand the other reviewers description of the picture. I think the picture is very good has vibrant colors and is very sharp. I expected more from google tv. It is difficult to use the hand control and you have to take several steps to get to where you want to go. It does not have a built in dual tuner which you would think a tv of this supposed caliber should have. Overall for the $800 I decided to keep it.
Summary: The second day after installing the TV, it stopped connecting to wifi. It was not even scanning networks. Had to work with LG support to fix it. It took a couple of weeks to rectify. They replaced all the boards in the tv. LG support was very good. Now it is working fine. Apart from this glitch, I had no issues. Picture quality is very good.

Summary: If you're considering this tv set, the main question you need to consider is whether the Google TV features will outweigh the sacrifices you'll make in picture quality and other functions compared to a non-Google tv. I base this on the premise that at the time of this review, for the same screen size and price, you are choosing between this tv and the LG Cinema Screen 55LM8600 55-Inch Cinema 3D 1080p 240 Hz Dual Core LED-LCD HDTV with Smart TV and Six Pairs of 3D Glasses...
