Google: 'LG TV Sound, No Picture' Before Buying This TV
5 March 2012
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. A quick Google search on 'LG TV Sound, No Picture' revealed this is a known problem with LG sets. How well known? There is a class-action lawsuit against the company in New Jersey.
Summary: This TV is great. I use in a bright sunny room and there is no glare. The only thing I am disappointed about is that the Pandora app is not on the TV. There's a MOG app but you have to pay a subscription to use it.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Quality
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. I hadn't actually seen one in person and was amazed at how sleek looking the front was, and how incredibly thin this television is. It's amazingly about 1" thick. It has a nice swivel base, which I love.
Summary: Have had the set for 1 month now and couldn't be happier. The picture is great. Watched the football game Sunday with 3D on, its not in your face but adds the right something. Watching a blue ray disk the picture is stunning. An A 1 product.
Summary: There is WAY too much to consider when making a purchase of this kind. I have had this set for about 2 mos now, and I have no complaints. I have done extensive research on 3D, LCD, LED LCD, and Plasma (previously using a 50 inch plasma). Knowing I wanted a 3D tv, I read up on and tested many individual brands and tvs. In my opinion, the 3D quality of both active shutter and passive 3D is the same.
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. It's thin and pretty light, but it's rigid - no creaks or moans from the casing as you pick it up.
