Summary: This was my first HDTV purchase and I bought this because of a drastic price drop at the time and my 25 year old 52" box TV went bad.. If I had it all to do over again, I would not purchase this TV due to the background ghosting/haloing effect and lip sync problems.
Pros: This TV does get excellent colors and true blacks. The LED back lighting makes a big difference. LG tech support is also fantastic as I have had a few problems and they were great with help. It has a very easy setup.
Cons: This TV displays haloing/ghost effects as previously posted. I went to few stores that had these LG models on display and it is a problem with all of them (although it it hard to find as it requires a particular combination of dynamics in the foreground and background at the same time).

Summary: The quality of the picture is too "real looking" for a lack of a better term. Watching a movies reminds me of deleted scenes or bad acting. I know I can't be the only one that feels this way. My husband, by the way worships this t.v.
Lip Sync problem for all HDMI - Customer Support Bad
Retired Electronic Engineer, Amazon
9 October 2009
Summary: The 55LH90 has as excellent picture. The audio lip sync is horrible via HDMI. I called customer support 9/25/09. They said they had a fix that they would mail to me. I would see it within 7-10 days. 15 days later I called again. They said their support policy had changed.
Summary: Amazing picture that jumps out. There is a bug however, the lip-synch issue when using HDMI it jumbles the audio and video. LG has been working on this issue for over a month and still no fix. You think this is something they would catch in QA?
Summary: Picture is excellent (5 stars). I have a bright room with lots of sunshine. So I needed a LCD/LED TV with matted screen. This one worked for me perfectly - except for audio (0 star): I use Time Warner Digital Cable box to get HiDef Channels.
Summary: I like to test every aspect of a new product I buy, especially one that's over 2 grand. In this case I went out to buy a ps3 and then bought the most rigorous benchmark for the t.v., Planet Earth in Blu-Ray. The picture I must say was beautiful, probably the best I've seen.
