LG 55LW5600 Cinema 3D LED HDTV Review

26 August 2011
  • Conclusion: The folks in the active 3D camp are not going to like this, but LG has figured out how to make a passive 3D HDTV that will sell the technology better than anything the competition has come up with for under $2,500. The inclusion of four pairs of glasses is a smart move and likely to influence potential customers. If LG can figure out how to make a 70-inch version of this set for under $4,000, I will gladly drink the entire pitcher of Kool-Aid. Highly recommended.
  • Pros: Excellent picture quality with both 2D and 3D content, Plethora of connections, LG's Smart TV interface is easy to use, Worked well with numerous Blu-ray 3D players from 4 different manufacturers, Solid Design, Cheap glasses (and 4 pairs in the box) make 3D a much more social experience, Viewer opinions make a compelling argument for passive 3D
  • Cons: Relatively expensive, Some lighting uniformity issues, Magic Motion remote is useless, LG Apps (games) are not terrribly interesting, No Pandora, Limited vertical viewing range in 3D mode, Detail in 3D mode suffers compared to active 3D sets

  • Excerpt: So far, three manufacturers have released 3D HDTVs that use passive polarized glasses rather than active shutter glasses: VIZIO, Toshiba, and LG. All three use technology developed by LG. In our June issue, we took a close look at VIZIO’s 65-inch entry, so this month, it’s perhaps appropriate that we go straight to the source and dive into LG’s first passive-glasses 3D HDTV.

LG 55LW5600 Review

26 April 2011
  • Excerpt: A new generation of less-expensive 3D HDTVs has just hit the market. Are they worth the lowered price of admission? On the surface, the 47-inch LG 55LW5600 is just one of a sea of black-edged flat panel HDTVs, but it does have a nice translucent edging. The screen is framed by a fairly wide black bezel, so it doesn’t have that “floating pane of glass” look of higher-priced sets; still the overall design is more than acceptable.
  • Pros: Affordable entry for 3D HDTV, Four pairs of glasses supplied, 3D effects better than expected, Wi-Fi ready, adapter included, Decent backlit remote
  • Cons: 3D effects not as distinct as high-end competitors, Pricier sets have better 2D picture quality, Confusing consumer-unfriendly manuals

  • Conclusion: Es perfecto para los entusiastas de la tecnología que gustan de disfrutar de las funciones más avanzadas, entre ellas la calidad 3D; el único requisito es que cuenten con un presupuesto holgado, ya que su precio no es bajo.
