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: 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: 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...
