Summary: Excellent TV. Researched for awhile before I picked it, but very happy with my decision. Good price. Picture is beautiful. Great features for streaming videos from your computer or just plugging in a hard drive. There are some hidden THX settings that are supposed to improve picture quality (THX Bright Room looks great even in the dark). Just google it or find it from AVS forums.
Summary: I set this tv up and tried to access my netflix and it said I needed to update the firmware. The problem is that after several hundred tries it would never get beyond 50%. I even lugged the thing downstairs to wire it directly to the router-still no better. Incidently, if LG says they prefer a wired network over wireless for firmware updates and it can't be done wirelessly I would say its a dumb tv-not smart.
Summary: This TV is great. Very light and easy to set up. The picture is fantastic and the 3D which we don't use much is neat. We have kids so the passive 3d is the way to go. we have about 10 pairs of the glasses and the kids love watching movies when we up convert them to 3d. The only con is it was a little hard to program with my harmony one remote, probably user error but because the TV tries to help by re-arranging the inputs by what is turned on at the time the remote...
I was not a fan of 3D tv till I saw this one at Costco

Summary: I have looked at many TV's from many different brands. In my opinion this is the only one that works. The rest were either not functional or made my eyes hurt. The picture on this was sharp and clear, with vivid colors and excellent black even in the harsh lighting of the warehouse. I like the fact that standards that are now being applied to these newer HDTV's like DNLA, etc.
Amazing features, great picture quality, internet apps could have been better

Summary: Recently bought this TV and I am quite happy with the purchase. For the price, the features are unbeatable and the picture quality is great too. The only area where the TV falls short of expectations is around it's internet capabilities - Youtube is quite rudimentary (no way to log in into your account, no access to playlists/favs) and adobe flash doesn't work. Waiting for a firmware update with an improved Youtube app and support for latest flash player.
Summary: The 2done to 3dthe conversion is amazing looks great, if your a gamer like I am the changing it to pc helps the lag rate tremendously and I have no issues now. The widow works great I have no bad things to say about this tv best tv I would have paid 1800for for it. Im writing thus from my phone so sorry for problem spelling.

Summary: I didn't think there would be a great difference from my 42" to this 55". But it is quite noticeable. This device is paper thin. OK, maybe not "paper thin", but, wow! this is THIN. The colors and brightness are awesome. Has a built-in RJ45 port and comes with a WiFi USB device. Pretty easy to setup on your home network. Pre-loaded with some decent apps: Hulu+, Vudu, Netflix, browser, FaceBook... The Wizard Remote does not seem to be very accurate.
Summary: Service: I've never had a problem with Amazon's service yet. This time was no different. The delivery guy showed up exactly on time, put my TV together, turned it on, made sure it wasn't cracked, and left. I tipped him enough money to get lunch. TV: 55" model This TV is really nice. I had a hard time deciding between this one and a comparable plasma. It seems like everybody that buys an LED LCD loves it and everybody that buys a plasma loves it.
Pros: 1)2d picture is high quality. 2) easy to use, plug and play. 3)3d glasses are awesome being cheap and light wight, i have glasses and they work well with them. 4) magic remote is awesome,just point and click,plus recalibrating pointer is smart.
Cons: 1) 3d use kinda disappointing. 2)apps are kinda pointless if u have a ps3,wishing they had a streaming music app that would be very useful. 3)composite slots points to the wall, kinda hard to put it on the wall and use them for the WII.
Summary: I have been tracking this TV for a while and wanted to make sure I was making the right decision before I pulled the trigger. I have read countless reviews on it, most great some not so good. A few days ago someone else mentioned all the ghosting when watching sports and that scared me a lot, since it is mostly what I watch. After installing the TV and calibrating it I must say that I am extremely satisfied with this purchase.
