Summary: Have had this tv for over 2 years..picture quality is not satisfactory, HD is good, but normal cable tv quality is below par..sound is bad, I think those are top two qualities that you look before you buy a TV, and it does not stand good on any of those factors. Internet widgets are ok, but for the cost picture quality should have been better.
Summary: Yes I only gave the tv 2 stars, but it's not a bad tv at all, it's just not good enough. I have had this tv for a month now. My friend has had his for 2 or 3 months, and we simply have different opinions about it. If you are looking at getting a lot of bang for your buck then this is a tv to consider (on sale). It's a real nice 55" LED.
Summary: Out of the box, this thing looks fantastic. The screen is slim, and the styling is great - the problems started as soon as it was turned on. First turned on, I noticed significant flash lighting in all four corners of the screen, and slight banding during dark scenes. Every single show had artifacts during quick camera movement. With Trumotion turned on - everything looked unreal and like a soap opera.
I received a defective LG 55LE5400, had tremendous difficulty exchanging.

Summary: I echo many of the pros that other reviewers have posted: Crisp picture, vibrant colors, nice apps and feature set. However, there is marked "cloudiness" around the edges of the screen, most noticeable on dark scenes (like closing credits). I thought it was a defect, so I returned my first unit and had TREMENDOUS difficulty exchanging (outlined below). However, the replacement has the same "cloudy", almost edge-lit look (but this is a backlit TV).
Summary: brought this TV home along with the sony kdl ex500, compared them side by side and the sony picture quality blew this TV away. I couldn't get the picture to match the sony no matter what I did with the settings.
