                  The picture quality of this TV is great. The Tru Motion works pretty well and the energy saving light sensor adjust the TV perfectly according to the lighting. Overall I think this TV is a great product for the price. You simply can't lose.

                      Our church has now been using this TV as part of our normal Sunday services for more than a month and it has worked/performed very well. The only interface we're using on it is the VGA input (to push computer-based video from our sound booth) and for that use the TV has worked flawlessly. The TV looks very nice in our sanctuary and its matte screen is perfect for avoiding any glare from lights/sunlight. We actually just bought the newer model (55LD520) for the other side of the room and it is working well, too. Got a great deal on the TV (it was on closeout after being discontinued) and it has been well worth every tithed penny.

                          We are very happy with this new TV. Set up was easy and haven't experienced any problems. We use it in a sunroom and it is much easier to see than the old plasma it replaced. Would have been nice if it included internet tv.

                                  This is my honest opinion, 5 years ago, LG is not my favorites brand to choose for my home enterainment, but in the last two or three years LG was suprised me about their design and quality, so last year I went to store and purchased for me an LG 55LH40 55' TV and I loved it. The sound, pix image, design and price was fabulous. Since then, I did purchased about 5 more products from LG for my home entertaiment. It seems like everyday the products made from LG was incredible. So, I did recommend my family and friends for it and I hope you guy out there willing to give LG a try. I also wish LG will invent more products in the future and keep continue stays in business forever. Thanks LG YOU THE BEST.....

                                    I was nervous when I decided to purchase a TV, but this one has been great. It has so many top-tier features for such a bargain of a television. I recommend it highly.
