Originally wanted to find a 60"+ LED LCDTV to replace my 61" Samsung DLP that conked out. I wasn't too excited about the new 60" options out there from Samsung, Sharp and Sony, so I decided to go for quality over quantity and buy a 55" instead. Originally wanted to get the LG Infinia 55LE8500, but after seeing this TV in person, I couldn't justify the $800+ premium. Best bang of the buck out there. Deep blacks (for an LCD)and accurate (and infinitely adjustable) color. I prefer its matte finish screen that is non-reflective. The big feature I like though is the local dimming. You won't find any other TV in this price range that has it. Very thin TV that also weighs less than 65lbs without the stand, so mounting is a breeze.Does it perform as well as the Infinia 55LE8500? No. Is it as cool looking? Nope. But it's about 90% there, and when you throw in the cost savings, this was the obvious choice for me!

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.

Good Tv. We have had this for about 5 years. It has been good up until now something is starting to go out. When we turn it on about 1/3 of the left side of the picture is blurry and the color is green or no color at all on the left side. It does clear up after awhile.
Purchased 8/10 Without Any Issues Ever!!!!!

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.
Was pretty nice
until after 3 years of ownership every HDMI port failed. Google it and you will find that many other people have had the same problem. TV tuner still works, so at least the OTA can be watched. Can't even find the main board available for sale anywhere. Very disappointing. When did 55" LED panels from a "major" manufacturer become disposable items?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Love This TV!!
By Johnny The Boy
I love this TV! I've had my LG for about 4 years now and the picture is still great, I really like all the inputs on the back, and the smart Tech. is convenient using other smart components!
Product not worth s---
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.

best purchase ever
I went out looking at a tv and came home with this tv that day. I love this tv. It's so easy to use and I have not had any issues with it. Good Job LG
from Boise, ID
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.
