Summary: I bought this when it was on sale a few months ago, and have enjoyed it ever since. I didn't run into any of the technical (ghosting, connectivity) issues that others have experienced. Picture quality is superb, and the TV itself is very aesthetically pleasing. A few things to note- 1- As other reviews have mentioned, this is a very glossy, not matte, screen.
Summary: Back in 2002 I purchased a top of the line Pioneer Plasma for $4.3k for my den and last year I purchase a 40inch LCD for the bedroom for 1.0k. Even thought its many years old, the Plasma holds its own, but I was due for a new den TV and when Amazon offered this deal to me, my wife told me to jump on it and I did. The screen is huge, the 2D picture is breathtaking with live HD. 3D is fun to watch and very enjoyable!
Summary: This tv is well worth the price listed on Amazon. I got it with the glasses and blue-ray bundle and after some shipping problems (which amazon quickly fixed BTW) I've gotten to enjoy the setup for about two weeks now. Since there are so many reviews I wont go into all the basics, plenty of ppl have covered that already. Things I didnt see covered that mattered to me I'll cover. 1st the "clouding" you see in some user posted pics...
Best TV I've seen yet to date for quality and price!

Summary: UPDATE: It's now Feb 2013 and this TV still has the best overall picture of any TV I have seen, especially in 2D, spectacular. The only drawback is the newer sets have better more realistic 3D and they can use regular "theater 3D" glasses. Buy this TV!! Before purchasing this TV bundle deal I did a lot of research and the only drawback I read was that it gets cloudiness in in the blacks.
Summary: Recieved the 55WX800U 2 days ago and it is amazing. Setup was a breeze.I had a 61" DLP 1080p set and after turning this new set on, wow, what I was missing on the DLP. The picture is simply stunning, perfect on all source material. Colors vibrant, detail amazing. On HD movies the picture is so perfect, yes a little bit of the "Soap Opera Effect", but I love it and my family also.
Summary: I have had this TV for a few months and I haven't found anything wrong with it. The picture is amazing, 3D is amazing and the internet Apps. are really cool. I do wish they would update the Netflix App. so you can search and see titles thru the App. but it's really not that big of a deal. Great great TV!!
Summary: I got the 55 Inch Toshiba around a week ago and I could not be happier. The TV arrived on time. Amazon did an awesome job as always. I got the 3d glasses and the 3d blu ray free with the TV. What an awesome deal. The glasses are a bit heavy and batteries need to be replaced when they run out.
Summary: I could not have gotten a better tv even if I did pay more! The picture is so clear, it makes the cameras used to film shows look cheap. Someone said everything seems Soap Opera like and it does. Like a very vivid dream. It will take some getting used to but I can't believe the quality. The 3D is cool and a neat little novelty but not what sold us on the tv, the tv is just impressive turned on or off! On a side note, Amazon service was amazing too!
An Excellent TV for the Money! And the 3D works AWESOME!

Summary: First off, I was shopping for a 55" LED but I was not in the market for a 3D TV as I didn't think it would be worth the extra premium. Then Amazon offered this set with 2 pairs of 3D glasses for $1549 which brought it into standard LED territory! So after reading reviews here and on other sites I decided to pull the trigger and buy this behemoth. All I can say is that it's a very nice TV for the money and the picture is beautiful!
