Summary: After researching passive vs active, observing various brands, I went with LG, specifically the 47LW5700. OMG did I make the right choice!!! The features are fantasic, setup was easy, and the picture (the most important consideration) is absolutely sublime. Random thoughts (some of which may be helpful to others trying to optimize their setup): - Passive 3D. Fugedaboutit. If you are on the fence on active vs passive, STOP.
Summary: I just bought this LG tv and it is Great except for Sound, and ability to addjust the colors. I like to Adjust color tones on TV and to Adjust the Sound to have more Bass and it does not seem possible on this TV. It has basic adjustments. I have heard that I may find some more on the Smart TV area so I will try that. There does not seem to be a auto adjust mode to make all pictures not have the Black bars on top and sides at times.
UPDATE -- STILL Excellent in all respects. Passive 3D is great!

Summary: This is an update to my earlier review. Now using LGTV for several days. Picture quality is just outstanding. Everything is so natural, you feel like you are in whatever program is showing. The colors and clarity are really extraordinary. I replaced my Sony LCD (6 years old) with this LG LED-LCD and am so happy to have upgraded. From other reviews this set is same as the 47LW5600 just without the local dimming.
Summary: Amazing image! Great TV! Easy to set up and to use the wireless feature with my home network.I had a 26" LG HD TV and already had a great impression on the quality of the picture. This 47 is even better! LG is really busting all other makers. My next purchase on TV will definitelly be another LG!
Summary: I purchased this TV around the Christmas season when these sorts of things were on sale and I must say I absolutely love it. I don't usually write reviews but after all of the pleasant surprises I have had with this set I felt compelled to write one. First off, I couldn't find anywhere on the box that mentioned that this TV was wireless but there was a wireless dongle included (+1). Assembling the stand was easy so us guys will not need the manual for that step :).
Summary: I got mine at Costco (for $849 on sale a few weeks back). I also have a Samsung LED 3D tv that uses active glasses. I can't begin to tell you how much better the passive 3D is. I've looked at DirecTV 3D content, Blu-ray and Half SBS streamed video. In all cases the passive is either equal or better to my eye. In some cases it seems way better.
Summary: I bought this TV at Costco, for much cheaper than amazon! 899$.. great deal for the amount of function. The picture is great, set up was easy, and I couldn't be happier. Haven't tried out the 3d feature yet, but I'm looking forward to that :).
Summary: Um dos motivos que me levou a comprar a TV foi justamente a função 3D e a marca LG. Ao comprar pude perceber que essa função 3D tem opção de ajustar sua intensidade de modo a ficar mais confortável para o usuário e o aparelho é de ótima qualidade visto que até hoje nunca deu nenhum problema.
