Summary: This review is focused on the 2D to 3D converter built into this TV. I think the feature is often overlooked, you can read the other reviews on picture quality, smart features, etc... When I started looking for a new TV 3D was not on my list of "must have features".
Summary: Ok I just got my USED (from amazon warehouse deals) 55" LG 3D tv and let me start by saying WOW!!! Never in my dreams did I think passive 3D could be this good. First off Amazon did a superb job shipping this TV it came right on time as said and they even trough in white glove service at no xtra...
Passive 3D is much better then active, and this TV is great at it

Summary: Honestly I think this is the first review I've ever written on Amazon for a product. I normally buy and just let it go. But this TV has impressed me so much that I thought I'd at least put my two cents out there for others. I ordered it for a great price on here.
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.
Summary: Amazon Reviews: The reviews here on this thing here are insane. How could you not buy it? So I did. When I got it I was unimpressed. I owned a 46-inch 1080p Samsung before it that is still beautiful to watch. The picture on the LG was VERY grainy and pixelated.
Summary: Let me start by saying I am definitely a little biased towards the LG brand itself. I have a smaller, older version that has been amazing to me. So when I decided I wanted to upgrade to a larger TV and one that had the 3D feature, I knew I wanted an LG brand.
Summary: People say that passive 3d halves the resolution from 1080p to 540p. The thing i dont understand is that i just finished watching 3d HD movies and footage and it looks 1080p to me. I am sorry but on paper maybe that is true but in MY OPINION the quality is spectacular.
Pros: *Excellent picture *Descent smart t.v apps *Able to stream HD movies in 1080p from my PC along with surround sound using plex media server/client *Thin *Excellent 2d HD quality *Excellent image when connected to PC
Cons: *Sound quality poor *Does NOT pass through surround sound from HDMI input to optical output on the back. *Using the remote control/WAN is kind of difficult when browsing the internet using the T.v(standalone). Five us the option to use a keyboard or mouse
Summary: Old plasma 50" finally bit the dust. Looked at quite a few reviews and this 55" LCD came out on top for me. Setup was quick as was the internet connection. Turned off " energy saver" feature to make the screen not go dim after a few minutes.
Summary: I went round and round with what to buy in Late October 2011. Sony, Samsung, Sharp... actually I looked at all the brands. Dollar for dollar, feature for feature.... I boiled it down to this LG 55LW5600 3D HDTV. For $1300 I was able to get a 55" 3d HDTV with just about all the bells and whistles.
Summary: We had looked a number of televisions at stores, online, etc for past few weeks looking for an upgrade from a 5 year old vizio. We werent originally looking for 3D Tv but decided to explore because the deals were good for xmas shopping. This T.V.
