Summary: Orginally manufactured From the Fall of 2009 to the Spring of 2010. Was to be sold at a Suggested List Price of $6000. Fall Versions appeared to have been a better Product than the later Spring Versions. (DSE Complaints) Difficulties at that time, of selling an LG Product in that Price Range. Subsequently most owners ended purchasing at substantial discounts, but from recent listings, seems to be holding it's own in the upper $1000, to lower $2000 range.
Pros: Blacks Are Black! Matte Screen. Improves with age! 3360 LEDS for Fully Backlit!
Cons: Off Angle Blooming, Service Menu White Balances no where near Spec, THX possibly has AutoColour.
Summary: We bought this TV in December and from the moment we turned it on I was wowed by the quality of the picture, especially those in HD. The audio is another matter. It sounded very tinny when we first turned it on so I adjusted the audio which did little to nothing. Then it started buzzing, which has continued to this day. Very, very annoying. I would recommend this set to friends but warn them that they may have to purchase a good soundbar, etc.
Pros: Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality, picture
Summary: Perfect TV for my house. I wanted to place a new TV on a certain wall in my house but in doing that it would cause me to have some seriously long HDMI cables! It’s hard to explain here why but I began by checking prices for 30ft plus long cables and found the term wireless HD TV on a website. That peeked my interest obviously and I began researching. I figured it was too good to be true and didn’t work as good as advertised.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings
Summary: The 55LHX is, overall, an excellent HDTV for those looking for Real Blacks and Outstanding Colour. It has a Matte Screen Finish, Wireless(*) and is just the Best of the Best! (*) - the downer is the Wireless Media Box - so unless you want to go Wireless, plan on Not using it. Go directly to the 55LHX Panel from your AVR or VE system. The Wireless Media Box does downgrade the 55LHX PQ. The Panel itself, is just about as Black as the Bezel!
Summary: Have purchased Sharpes. Sonys, Samsungs, and yes, even LGs, and was left wanting! Hearing that the Matte Screen TVs were becoming History, quickly purchased one of the few remaining 55LHXs: sight unseen! Just went by specs. Right out of the Box - My Ulimate TV was finally found! No Highly Reflective Screen, no Thin LED compromises, and the Blacks are Black. To this point, my 55LH90's I thought were Black. Next to the 55LHX, they're kinda Milky Black.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality, blacks are black!!
Summary: We carefully and thoroughly researched all sets available. We even made a special trip to the mainland to preview them. Without question, the 55LHX has the brightest colors and blackest black of any LED set. My wife and I conducted side-by-side comparisons and consistently selected the LG. This set is mounted in the bedroom and is truly over-the-top. We could NOT be happier.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality, light weight and easy to install
Summary: The 55LHX is an excellent monitor. The video quality is unmatched by any LCD/LED TV I looked at. The audio system has below average performance but a surround sound system will fix this issue. The wireless features are great. However there is connection interference when you walk between the receiver and the TV. Overall I am satisfied with my purchase.
