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: I don't have much to write about this TV, but I will say LG did a great job. If you know how to read and write and as well follow instruction you have nothing to worry about. This TV has a very funny setting. Don't try to block the signal or get blue-tooth derives closer because some interfere with it. Sometime they will even transmit line like lighting in the sky. when you watch movie or play game with this TV it feels like you are inside it.
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.

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: Overall Rating 5 out of 5 "Have gone through about 10 TVs since 2006. Samsungs, Sharpes, Sonys and even other LGs. Always finding something either lacking or a problem that got to be annoying enough for me to start looking for another set. When I heard about the Matte Screen disappearing, to be replaced with these new super thin reflective models with their own problems caused by compromises to the LED system, decided to jump on the super deal LG had in it's 55LHX model.
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
