Summary: Well, I did as much research as I could and decided to plunge on this TV. I saw all of the warnings of input lag, but I also saw all of the people who were able to get rid of it by changing the input to PC or Game and the video settings to Game as well. What everyone fails to mention, is the picture quality after you change the settings to this. Basically, you now have a simple LCD tv because Local Dimming and Vibrant color are totally removed by setting these up.
Summary: tv delivered early in very good order. we set the TV up and did not have any problems and the tv worked great right out of the box after hooking up with HDMI cable to HD cable box. The picture quality is great. Thanks Amazon! OOPs...tried for the graranteed pricing and could not get what we saw because they,Amazon, could not verify the pricing......and it was on their site !! If you see a price less that what you paid you had better print it out for proof.
Summary: I hope this helps someone. So, with my TV already ordered and on its way, I stumbled upon the "Audio down-converting issue". If you search through the reviews both here and elsewhere you will find many people having an issue with the surround sound signal coming from their source (STB, DVD, PS3, Etc.) being down-converted to 2 channel by the TV. Makes sense if using the TV speakers but if your like most people, you want to use your surround receiver.
LG's Cinema 3D experience, as clear & life like as it gets! WOW!

Summary: I searched and viewed so many HDTV reviews (mainly form CNET)& read plenty of customer reviews. For the money, this HDTV has won me over in every aspect! The first thing that WOWED me out of the box was how thin the TV was out of the box, it seems no thicker then an inch, very nice. Then the picture & color was very nice out of the box. Then I tweaked some configurations then I got the WOW moment from the picture.
Summary: I got this for a great price (Black Friday Deal), but even if I had paid more, I would have been extremely happy with my purchase! I mostly watch sports and all I can say is WOW!! Viewing a football game on this TV is amazing. The screen is big and the colors and images just pop off the screen. Football looks the best, but basketball and just about any other sport feels like you're right there. And unlike an earlier reviewer, I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANY BLUR WHATSOEVER!
Summary: This TV is fantastic. I bought it for my in-laws who were upgrading from an old tube TV. Needless to say this blew their socks off. For me, I have a 55" vizio non-3d TV that I purchased about 2 years ago, and I'm already getting 3D fever. I'm going to give it a year or 2 to let the technology work itself out, as I think it is still a little new. But overall, for the money, and all things considered, they are typically throwing 3D into almost all the TV's now anyway.
Summary: (1/4/2012) My wife and I got this TV (55LW5600) on 12/24/2011 and was amazed with the size, picture quality and the unbelievable 3D picture with the passive glasses. The non-glare screen has proven to be one of the nicest features about this tv. You will not be disappointed if you select this tv. Pros: Great 3D picture, Easy To Setup, Impressive size, Reduced Glare, Passive 3D glasses, Great Picture Quality, Best looking TV out there.
Summary: Had TV for about two weeks. Had a 2007 46 inch LCD before. Was time to upgrade. Went to the local Video Only store to look. They were pushing this TV big time. No way I was buying until I got home and did some research. Was impressed by what I read. So made the purchase and I'm very impressed with how great this TV is. The smart TV part is very nice. I have a Roku player and an Apple TV. But since getting the TV they have been very lonely.
Summary: I purchased the LG Infinia 55LW5600 television from AMAZON after reading numerous reviews. I upgraded from a 42 inch 60hz Vizio LCD. I paid 1320.00 and received the free 6 pack family 3D glasses. The delivery was superb. White Glove delivery. The television was mounted to the wall. Cable Box, Blu-Ray player connected. Played with the television for approximately 25 days. Searched several sites and reviews for optimal image settings. Found none that wowed me.
