Summary: Bought this during the holiday shopping season of 2010 for only $1500 (great deal at the time, you know how it is with TV's though, prices drop by the year). I have nothing but good things to say about this TV, the picture is fantastic, movies, video games, and HD channels all look great. Also, as someone who does not have a surround sound system, the speakers on this TV are great!
Summary: got from adorama for 1550. price from other suppliers is 2199 now. this picture is the best i have ever seen. it even old dvds look like a live broadcast. simplix link w/ new LG blueray is way cool also.
Summary: My new HDTV is great! It took a little getting used to watching TV in hi def, but now that I have I love it. The picture is very good, the sound is great, and it was really easy to conect with out Direct TV stuff. I'm very pleased with my purchase.
Summary: This TV is a little bigger than other 55" models, so make sure you have room to fit it. The speakers are extremely good (considering they are TV speakers.) I love being able to play mkv files from a flash drive attached to the USB port. It does require AC3 audio and will not play DTS, but there are several free programs on the market that will convert your mkv files.
Summary: Right out of the box, this TV is terrific. And, at $1599, a real deal with no tax, no shipping costs. Super clear and sharp picture quality in light or dark room. Delivery was flawless, placed just inside the door.
Summary: This is a fantastic TV for the price right now. It features local dimming, which gives it fantastic black levels. It is also backlit, and has a better picture than many of the (more expensive) super-thin edge-lit options out there. It rivals many plasmas. In terms of bang for your buck it doesn't get much better than this. This TV is not manufactured anymore, and it's closest new equivalent from LG costs many hundreds more.
Summary: You can't beat the picture quality and sound quality for the price with this TV. Have had no problems whatsoever. Easy to mount and set-up. Very good backlighting. No dark spots and colors are very vivid! I would definately buy this TV and another LG again!!!
Summary: I bought this TV to replace a projector system. I got tired of replacing bulbs, etc. TV should be maintenance free!! I thought I would miss the 84 screen (which I did for a day or two) but the TV has an amazing picture with good sound quality, just plugging it in. I mounted it on the wall and plugged in a cheap HDMI cable and everything is perfect. Probably my best purchase in a long time.
Summary: Great TV. Picture quality is fantastic and 240 HZ makes this football season the best yet! Sound is very good but mostly I watch with a surround sound system engaged. So far it is an amazing TV.
