Summary: This is my first time reviewing a product on Amazon, but after the amazing customer service we just received I thought it was well deserved. I bought the TV in the summer of 2011 at a great price. It arrived with a tiny scuff on one corner but otherwise perfect. The picture is fantastic and to the extent we use the 3D it has been great. The real reason for my review, however, is the service. I noticed that there was a problem with the screen in Dec.
Summary: Comming from an old tube style to this was a big leap. The picture is phenomenal. 3D is a great feature my kids like. I'm using the wireless connection to my home server and show photos and play music. Only lacks a good way to create play lists. ITUNES compatibility would be great!
Summary: I reviewed multiple 3D TVs and came up with this 3D TV. 1/ I have a fairly lit up room (with lots of sun-light coming in); I found no problem using the product during the day/night; I like the Intelligent sensor feature for brightness. 2/ I do not really like LG Apps; Seems cumbersome.
"Good value for the money if 2D/HD is the primary use."

Pros: Setting suggestions posted on the CNET website provide a very film-like image in a dimly lit room. Believable color, without the god-awful "more real than real" video effect some LED's produce, as the TruMotion feature can be turned off completely.
Cons: Edge-lit design has visible flaws in dark scenes when lighter content is centrally located on the screen. Most noticeable during title sequences and credits, which in the grand scheme of things, is probably not going to bother most viewers.
Summary: This TV gets very good reviews so I'm so sure how much more I can say. The picture out of the box is very very good and I'm looking forward to getting some time to calibrate it better. I did some tests with a Kill-a-Watt meter with a HD program playing and the TV was using than 70 watts of power. Thats pretty amazing. The picture continues to look very good at even some pretty sharp angles so very happy with that. The 3D is kinda cool..
Summary: This will be very short. Great TV EXCEPT: The Digital Audio Output (optical TOSLINK) output does NOT output Dolby Digital. The Dolby Digital signal is input via the HDMI cable, but the TV converts it to "2.1" according to LG Tech Support. If you have a receiver without HDMI inputs, you must connect the source directly to the receiver. The digital output on this TV is useless.
Summary: I own this LG Cinema 3D TV and I absolutely love it. The LG LW5600 is probably the best mid range TV on the market for free 3D glasses, great picture and smart TV features. The most part i like about it is secondary motion-sensitive remote that provides a cool, easy-to-use control option. The only thing, like other TVs, i am not satisfied is sound. LG is really making some excellent TVs these days.
Almost no input lag, but 3D visible angle is too small!

Summary: Before I finally bought this tv, I saw in other's reviews that 47LW5600 has a terrible input lag that will ruin your gaming experience. Although I was really worried about this issue, since the deal is so good, I still ordered one. After I received the tv, I did a test with Halo3 in xbox360. The result is that if you turned on the TruMotion function, the input lag would be about 0.2s. If you turned off TruMotion, the input lag will magically disappear!
Summary: We received the LG in 47inch about 2 weeks ago. We are using it with a BlueRay DVD player and a wired Ethernet connection to stream videos from Netflix, Amazon etc. No set top boxes or standard Comcast, Verizon since we got rid of these services being too expensive after the teaser rates expire.
Summary: It was quite a dream to find this TV on sale for a few bucks over a grand. It has every feature I want in a TV. Full HD 1080p, although that's pretty much the standard, now. Network and internet connectivity through LAN or WiFi, including it's own apps for netflix, YouTube, amazon, hulu, and more. Use it as a uPnP device and play movies from your computer. Passive 3D with four pairs of glasses and support for several 3D modes.
