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 cost. The guy brought the TV in my house for and opened it to ensure nothing was damaged.
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. The shipping was free and was considered "white glove" which I believe means they bring it in, put the stand on it, and make sure it works before leaving.
Summary: Overall, I am very happy with my new LG LED television. It has met or exceeded all of my expectations with the only exception being the smart tv characteristics. The internet applications are very slow and don't work as well as I had hoped. Other than that, I am very pleased. The 3D glasses are very comfortable, easy to wear and work great.
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: This was an awesome choice, i looked at a lot of TV's and checked a lot of reviews and consumer reports. Purchased the LG 55LW5600 HDTV with 3D, wasn't sure how i would like the 3D but we love it. the picture is so clear everyone says it feels like we are right there in the scene. The Smart TV works great cuts out a lot of trying to figure out which input to use. The wireless was effortless and we were watching movie from Netflix in minutes.
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. I tried different settings and reset it to factory defaults to no avail.
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. The TV has been in use for about 2 months now and I absolutely love it! Here were my main decision points; 1) Price - Dollar for dollar the other name brands could not stack up.
Great purchase! Amazing 2D & 3D Picture from Hi-Def source.

Summary: High Definition (HD) videos (cable, satelite, or blu-ray) look great in both 2D & 3D mode. Standard Definition (SD) signals look blah (like a 10 year old rear projection TV). I wouldn't spend the extra money for this TV if you'll just be using old style DVD player and SD TV signals... NOTES Most reviews claim Active 3D is superior to Passive 3D. All I can tell you is WOW!!! The passive 3D on this TV is amazing.
