    Honestly this was our very first large tv purchase and i wanted to make sure I did all the research to buy the best tv I could for the money. We definately succeeded. The picture is amazing especially for fast action sport (basketball,football) and video games. The low glare screen cuts out window glare a ton. Also note i have never used the stock speakers for anything. this has had a 5.1 surround sound system from minute 1. these tvs are not meant to run on those speakers alone so make sure to leave money in your budget for a home theater system. The one thing i do miss that this tv does not have is picture in picture an option that was overlooked on this model. The free blue ray player is a very nice touch and makes your home theater come alive. I will say if you are looking for a better business to buy from you will not find one. [...]

    I have had this TV for just under 2 months and after a software update the other night two separate bands about 6 inches wide appeared on the screen. I will reserve further comment on this issue until I see how LG fixes this problem. A technician is scheduled to look at the TV in a few days. Prior to this problem I have had no issues with the TV. The picture quality is fantastic and overall use is easy. The NetCast feature is great for a TV. I am using the wireless adapter on this TV and have had no issues with streaming. Like others have said the sound can be a bit of a downer. I have connected the TV and Blue Ray player to a home theater system so it does not bother me too much. Overall I was extremely satisfied with this TV until the other night. My feelings are I prefer for LG to replace this unit with a new one since this should not have occurred. I also have an 47" model of this same TV and am keeping my fingers crossed.

        The one thing i noticed when i purchased this tv was the picture. The people on the screen were moving around all funny and it looked like I was on set with them. I don't notice so much now because Ive had it for a while but overall I haven't had any problems and I am still satisfied. Still happy with my purchase.

        Product not worth s---

        By Lolo

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about LG 55" Black LED Flat Panel LCD HDTV:

        We bought this TV less than 2 years ago from Best Buy. We spent quite a bit of money getting the TV, Blu-Ray player and the wireless router. Two (2) weeks ago the TV picture and sound went off. The sound came back on, but the picture did not. We only have vertical gray lines. Since then, we have had a repairman come to the house, and he tho't the problem might be a T-Con board, which he needed to order. He called today to let me know he can't get a T-Con board. I called another repairman who tho't it was probably another problem, but he wasn't able to locate the particular part(s) online for the repair. Both repairmen have indicated that if it ends up being the processor board that needs to be replaced, we should just buy another TV. Has the world become just a throw-away society? I will just use my 10-year-old computer.

                I have had this TV for over a year now, and I still love sitting down and watching TV and movies. The picture is still stunning. My family regularly uses the Netflix app to stream right through the TV (no extra devices needed), including the streaming in high-def. I have been able to access a home media server and look at pictures, and they are fantastic. More apps would be nice, and the requirement to buy an extra dongle in order to connect to a wireless network was obnoxious.

                    I love every aspect of this TV. The full HD picture quality is outstanding. The added features are quite amazing also, such as with netcast you are able to stream new movies, netflix is another feature it has. The design is sleek and thin so if someone wants to have a TV that people comment on quite often, this is the one!

                        For the price, you can't find a better TV. It took the TV a few weeks to settle into the perfect picture, but it's set now. We couldn't be happier with what we got for the price we paid. We really love the built in apps as well, and use it for movies, music, and netflix all the time. All in all we couldn't be happier. The only drawback would be the sound, but it seems that almost all flat TVs have that problem. I'd recommend getting a soundbar or surround sound to get the most out of the system.

                            I have had this TV for over a year and it works really great. Here are my Pros and Cons. Pros: Easy to use Video quality is really great with the right HDMI. I started with a BestBuy Rocketfish HDMI so I upgraded using a AudioQuest "Cinnamon" HDMI wire and the picture improved a lot. Gaming and watching movies cleared up after that. Remote control lights up. Cons: Not wifi ready, a month later I bought this then Wifi ready TVs came out. You can purchase a wifi usb attachment for around 80 dollars but if you buy a cat5 wire for half the price. data transfers are a lot faster and you save a lot more money. The stand it comes with is okay but wish it was more rock solid foundation. When watching Blue Ray movies Blur is pretty bad. Slow processor for the kind of apps it has. If the power goes out or you turn off your power strip the internal battery does not save your time and date but it saves your tv settings. Wish the tv input button would scroll through your active wire inputs instead of choosing wich port I want to use.

                                        Bought this TV in February 2011 and hooked it up to the internet via HDMI. My family have been enjoying this marvellous TV since then.
