Summary: I saw this TV at a LG stand at north park (dallas) and was pretty curious. LG had a bunch of TVs out and this was one of the 2011 models. This tv had some seriously deep blacks for a LED TV. I've owned 3 plasma sets since 2001 and these TV probably had inkier blacks then all of them. Design wise, it didnt look as good as their 2012 models though. 3D was pretty good. I could see why the passive glasses are getting popular with kids. It has my vote.
Summary: I own two different LG models and I gotta say this model is an awesome choice. Although it's pricey but you really get what you pay for. You can actually view the 3d in any direction plus it's a lot cheaper than an active shutter 3d glass. You can have your whole family (as long they could fit you living room) watch 3d without losing the 3d vision. Unlike the active shutter, your basically by yourself (whats the fun of that?) to see it better.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
Excerpt: I bought this TV a year ago on Black Friday for an amazing price and I've loved it every day I've had. The picture is amazing and the sound is great too. I just got a sound system for it but not because it was lacking in the department at all. Its super easy to hook up external devices to. I've got 4 devices attached with another port to spare. Its great for watching movies and sports games. I would absolutely recommend this TV to anyone who asks me.
Excerpt: I got this TV over a year ago. I LOVE it! We use it all the time! It has a good, clear picture. Great screen, It is great quality, and it's pretty easy to clean too! It's also the perfect size! It looks great in our living room! I would recommend this tv to anyone! I love LG! It has a good clear picture! I think the sound is good, but my husband got a separate sound system, but it's good enough for me! This is a very well built tv!
Excerpt: This TV is so great and so clear. It is like haing giant people talking in my living room. It actually takes some time to get accustomed to all the features. The best picutre I have ever seen. At time is feels like I could reach out and touch the person on the screen. All the sound features are distinct and amazing.
Excerpt: I like this TV. It has a great picture and is a really good size. It's also really light and easy to move. This is both good and bad though - if you have kids you need to have them be extra careful around it. Set up was easy and after a year of ownership I'm still completely satisfied with the purchase.
Excerpt: My friend just purchased this television and apparently got a pretty good deal on it at Best Buy. The picture is super clear and is great for movies. The only problems I have with it are that you have to use 2 separate remotes for volume and channels. I'm not sure if this is something that he just set up wrong with the cable box, but it's definitely annoying to have to use 2 remotes.
Excerpt: I got a great deal on this LG 55" television a couple of days after my old LG died. While I was thrilled with the deal at the time, I'm much less so now. I'll be the first to admit, the picture is crystal clear, and the sound is crisp. Maybe it's just me and I'm having difficulty explaining it, but something's wrong with the picture, even though it is so clear. It's almost as if, when you're watching a movie, the movie appears to be a home movie.
Excerpt: This is a great television to to own. The picture display is amazing, very sharp and bright. The screen itself is very thin, and looks nice when mounted. The television was easy to install and set up. The only drawback I could find, is that the buttons on the actual tv are hard to find in the dark, as they are not raised. The "buttons" are touch sensors in the plastic around the screen and can be difficult to find.
