Excerpt: LG INFINIA 55LX9500 is a class of LED TV, which offers clear image quality. For those who are not familiar with the LED technology, it is simply an improved version of the LCD or liquid crystal display television, which seems to have been forever locked in a battle with the plasma technology. LCD is also what a lot of notebook or laptop computers are made of. So essentially, any LED TV in the market is also basically LCD, with a significant difference.
Summary: We absolutely love this TV and cannot be any happier. Highly recommend. It took a little bit of time to finalize the picture but it was worth it. We have on the TV since August 2010 with no problems.
Summary: I purchased this television in February of 2011. I was clearly impressed by the picture quality and colors. The 3D is just amazing and it appeared that this was the best TV ever until.....August of 2012. This television that retails for $4995.00 and that I paid $2200.00 experienced something that is called PIXEL FAILURE. In short I have SEVERAL vertical lines on the television that are visible to anyone willing to take a look in various places on the screen.
Summary: On paper the Tv sounds great and even in the show room you might be impressed but don't be fooled! This TV has some of the worst banding I have ever seen on a TV (meaning that black lines show on the tv when it pans from dark to light sources) and the uniformity is completely horrible. Worst purchase. Ever made and I went through 2 panels so it is not a malfunction it is just the TV.
Summary: When LG introduced the 55LX9500 it was, if memory serves me correctly, around $5K. It seemed to be one of those items that LG fully intended more as a "statement product" than a mass market volume product. First, the 55LX9500 was a testament to style, it was at the time the thinnest 55" LCD HDTV available with full-array LED back-lighting-at barely over 1" thick at it's deepest depth point!
Pros: a lots of lipsync issues on HD channels. 480HZ refresh rate causes a lots of sudden pauses and jumps on or between the scenes. picture from a 120hz made by the same factory 42LH40 has much better motion flow and picture looks more real.
Summary: I have spent many hours reading the reviews of the different LED TV's, and finally purchased the LG 55LX9500. I was so excited when I received it!! The picture was AWESOME!! Within a few hours, I noticed a little black spot on the screen near the top right hand corner. It wasn't a bad pixel, but what looked like a bad backlight LED. I called LG Customer Support, and reached a call center overseas.
Summary: I am a complete technology luddite who knows nothing about technology but was so drawn by the combination of design aesthetic and advanced technology that I just had to get it. Lo and behold, when I took it out of the box and had it setup, it exceeded my all my expectations. The picture quality is amazing, the sound was so good (in the context of my 1BR new development condo)that I almost regretted buying a home theater in a box to pair it with.
