Summary: I love this TV. I especially enjoy the ability to have 3-D when I need it without having to have expensive glasses. I love to search the web with it also. The quality is very good and I am very glad I bought it.
Summary: I'm really here to talk about the 3D picture. I've had my TV for only 2 weeks and if something changes over time I will update this review. This is my first ever review about a product but it has been such a great experience I had had had to share. Con: 1. Out of the box 3D picture quality isn't the greatest but with just 10-20 minutes of configuration it's (for the lack of a better word) AMAZING. If 10-20 minutes is way to much time for you... Oh never mind... Pros: 1.
UPDATE - ISSUES FIXED: Consider the 47" model instead

Summary: NOTE: See UPDATE below. We've edited this review because all the initial concerns we had about this TV have been addressed and corrected with a few simple steps. So, feel free to skip down to the bottom to see what we did to make this TV look AMAZING! :-) ------------------------------------------------------------ I just learned a couple of things. First of all, I learned that bigger is not always better. We had purchased the 47" version of this TV ([...
Summary: I'm not going to discuss how gorgeous the picture is or how great the 3D is because they are both spectacular. Have had this TV for one week. The problems I'm having are A/V issues with lip sync. If you want surround with an older AV receiver, you could be in for bad news. I'm very disappointed to find out my older (7yrs) flagship Yamaha receiver needs to delay the sound and can't. It also can't switch HDMI.
Summary: This passive 3d system is the best. The 2D to 3D is quite effective. I watch all my standard HD shows in in the 3D mode. Movies made in 3D look even better. All 3D systems result in a slightly darker image. This set helps offrset this by offering a brighter image that greatly reduces the darkening effect. Hats off to LG.
Summary: The great price sold me - especially after reading the other reviews. But when we turned on the TV - the picture quality was breathtaking. It clearly beats my smaller Sony bravia. The 3d is amazing - even the 3D effect for non 3D shows is pretty neat. Having the wireless internet feature is also fun - I watched a streaming video from netflix - which had a great picture but my dsl internet connection was too slow so it needed to stop and build the buffer every 5-10...
Excerpt: We bought it and have been very delighted. It changes the screen size when your watching HD channels. There are a few free 3D channels through direct t.v . And the DVDs you buy that are 3D are really expensive. Its also a great tv for the WII. Looks great. Colors have never been changed. Is good but we use a surround sound. Haven't had any issues. Looks great! Everything is possible to get too even for being so big and hung up. Runs great!
Excerpt: We recently upgraded from those non flat-screen huge body but small screen TVs to this Smart TV by LG. And I love this TV. It is such a huge improvement. I do not think I will be able to watch anything on one of those older TVs ever again. The picture and sound quality are fantastic on this TV, and I would definitely recommend getting this TV.The design is also fantastic.
Excerpt: Whne we decided to change our old TV we looked around a lot. Then finally decided to go with LG 3D 55" TV. It is a smart TV where you have all the apps that you would use now adays which are Hulu Plus, Netflix, Skype. For skype you require separate camera which we currently dont use. But the You tube and Netflix are teh max used because of my son. The you tube functionality is awesome.
