Summary: I received my LG 55-LW5600 HD TV in early January of 2012 and applied all the latest firmware updates. This is my first HD TV. I find the following problems very frustrating: 1. I use the Wireless Dongle that came with the TV to connect to my 802.11n 5Ghz wireless network. The dongle is *always* plugged into the USB port of the TV.
Summary: Pros: Pretty good when you use it as a standard TV Cons: Browsing sucks! Very slow, cannot play videos on 80% of the sites. I primarily bought this for live streaming from international sites and veetle.com. But no luck. There is hardly any chance for flash upgrade any time soon. No point in paying so much extra for this. I'll keep the TV. I just ordered a logitech revue with google TV.
Summary: Could have been just back luck, but my TV died after 4 months of moderate use (1/2 of the screen is either blinking or black). LG tech support came to my house with parts (after waiting a week given they were backordered) and, given they did not do any good, I am told I am going to receive a new TV (which us also backordered). I hope the new set works, since I liked the first one (while it lasted). P.S.
Summary: This TV has good picture, however the Internet applications are a big joke; extremely slow, and almost unusable. i am very disappointed since Internet App support was a main reason for purchasing this TV.... seriously, they are almost not usable... so i ended up connecting a laptop to the TV .... you better get a cheaper TV (without Internet app) and connect your PC/Laptop... or get something else that works .... this one DOES NOT....
Summary: UPDATE: Our TV lasted about 21 months, but now it has stopped functioning and is out of warranty. If you're into getting extended warranties, then you might like this TV, but if like me you think such products should be built to last a bit longer that this, then keep looking. ----------------------- The passive 3D is a good effect, easy to adjust to and convenient to watch. The loss of resolution due to the interlacing is noticeable but tolerable.
