Summary: We bought the LG in 2011 as the secondary TV. It was wall-mounted and everything worked well. Since it's a secondary TV, we only used it a few hours every other week. Unfortunately, it broke down a few days ago for no particular reason.
Summary: Bought this TV a couple of years ago and am still very pleased. I bought this TV specifically for movies and college football and am proud to say that it is 2/2 for us in National Championships (RTR)! Picture is great, bright and sharp.
Pros: Big TV, great picture, great features, thin, lots of inputs, smart TV with lots of features
Cons: LG App store will never hit the big-time, but thats not really a big deal. Has all the most popular apps already.
Summary: With so many reviews for this tv already here and other places, I'll keep this short and to the point. The price on this tv is GREAT right now, which was the big reason I went for it. A passive 3d, led lcd, wifi ready 55 inch tv for under 1500? That's a pretty good deal.... Setup: Pretty easy.
Google: 'LG TV Sound, No Picture' Before Buying This TV

Summary: After reading all the gushing reviews here on Amazon and other online sources, we purchased a 55' LG5600 in late November, 2011. It stopped working March 5, 2012 (that's 3 months, if you're counting). One night it worked fine, by the next morning we could get sound, but no picture.
The poor picture quality outweighed the positives.

Summary: The Good I ordered the 55" model from Amazon. It was delivered 4 days earlier than expected. As always, you can't go wrong by shopping at Amazon. When I first unpacked LG Infinia LW5600, I was so pleased at the aesthetics.
Great TV - but for info on Netflix Streaming Issue & Documentation Quality read on...

Summary: I picked this LG TV out for all the features and I watch LG TVs in hotels often so I liked the picture quality. The unit itself is great, picture quality, etc. etc. is wonderful. It has a few issues you may have to work out and the documentation (and LG website) is of little help.
Summary: The first thing that struck me when I unboxed my 55LW5600 was how thin it is. I was replacing a Toshiba 52XV545U and flat panel technology has improved greatly since 2009. I was almost afraid to lift it. :) But when I did, I was struck by how solid and well-constructed the panel itself feels.
Summary: I defy someone to find a another TV with these specs for a similar price. I know specs are one thing and real world performance is another. Well, let me tell you, this TV lives up to the expectations. Heck, it even exceeds them. I've noticed that some have complained about the lack of apps.
Summary: This TV is very good to excellent. If you want 3D, this is the best choice since the glasses are inexpensive and less fatiguing than active glasses. Some will argue that active has a better picture quality but I would have to disagree that it is enough of a tradeoff not to go with this model.
Summary: Someone gave this TV 1 egg because they bought the TV for the SmartTV functions. This TV is much more than a SmartTV, if you want to use the internet, buy a laptop or desktop computer. Another person was mad about the CEVA delivery. I had a great experience with CEVA.
Pros: HUGE!! I didn't think an upgrade from 42" to 55" would be that major but this this is big! Looks great, great picture, awesome 3D even when gaming. Google search some calibration setting, makes the picture look even more impressive.
Cons: Speakers are pretty sad. I think my wifes laptop speakers are better. Make sure you have a AVR or your wasting your money.
