Summary: Just purchased this television yesterday from Costco for $1099 and I have to say I am pretty impressed. I did quite a bit of research before deciding on this model and I was initially considering going with a plasma but this television just seemed to be the biggest bang for the buck in terms of features and picture quality. Everything is a personal preference but I would highly recommend spending some time calibrating this set once you get it set-up.
Summary: I'm quite happy with this TV, especially the picture quality (I have the 55" one). Even standard def DVDs look great (not sure if that's because of the TV, or the upscaling from the Bluray player). The automatic 2D to 3D works surprisingly well, but it's by no means perfect and isn't a replacement for genuine 3D Blurays, but it's fun to play with.
Summary: As of this writing I've owned this TV for 2 weeks. I do not have any complaints at all. It took me 30 minutes to set it up and about 5 days of adjusting the various settings before I found the sweet spot that suited my tastes. I abhor the TruMotion feature but it can be disabled if you're using HDMI cables. If you like that horrible "video" look that the 120hz refresh rate puts out then TruMotion is for you.
Summary: 55" is a nice size. In a small living room it's not overwhelming, yet still impressive. Picture is great. The tv is very sleek looking. 6 months after purchase and it doesn't look dated, unlike some other TV's I considered. Upconvert (2D>3D) works very well. Apps are excellent. Very nice for netflix viewing. Easy! During the first few months though, apps would freeze and tv would turn itself off then on again intermittently.
Summary: Nice Tv defintely worth at the time of purchase. great picture quality. The passive 3d wasnt as nice as expected and a week later i found the same model at frys for 300 cheaper :(. but still a nice tv.
Summary: I purchased this TV in June. Coming from a 42" Sharp Aquos that I had for quite a few years, I was stunned at how nice the picture quality on the LG was. It was an improvement in all areas: brightness, contrast, color accuracy, motion. Truly outstanding. In the process of installing it, it also became very apparent at how much thinner and lighter televisions had become in recent years. There is almost no bezel on the side.
Summary: GOT THIS TV FOR A GREAT PRICE AND DO NOT REGRET. GREAT PICTURE, AWESOME FEATURES. ITS LIKE HAVING A TV THAT THINKS FOR YOU! I DONT REGRET NOT PAYING MORE FOR THE SAMSUNG. MY ONLY ISSUE IS THE SOUND IS NOT VERY LOUD. YOU REALLY NEED SURROUND SOUND OR A SOUND BAR TO WATCH MOVIES AND THE LIKE.
Pros: GREAT PICTURES, AWESOME FEATURES
Cons: REALLY NEEDS SURROUND SOUND OR A BAR, TV OUTPUT NOT GOOD
Summary: I recently purchased this TV after my 55 Samsung started giving me picture problems. I contacted Samsung about the problem, but there was no recall on my model. Yet they issued one for the higher end and lower end of my Samsung. The cost to fix was not worth the money out of my pocket when I could just purchase another TV. So now I'm trying out LG and I love it. Easy to use internet options with the pointer mouse on the remote along with a keyboard.
Pros: Easy to use, love the remote, and it's not an over priced TV like a Samsung
Cons: Better speakers but it is what it is cause its a flat tv
Summary: Average sound, bought sound bar. Refresh rate not adequate for many shows. Lack of Magic remote makes web navigation cumbersome. Our 47" LG has it and I thought mistakenly they all did. Decent 55" but certainly not the best choice.
