      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!

      edge illumination is distracting

      Great,crisp, picture BUT with a black background you can actually see the edge lighting moving around the perimeter of the screen. This is very distracting and because of this I would not recommend...Read complete review

                  We have owned this TV for about a year and the quality of the picture is fabulous! It almost looks like a 3D picture but without the glasses. We also bought the LG surround sound and blu ray player so that we have the full movie experience at home.

                              Did a lot of research before finally deciding on LG and this model. I tell everyone to go the extra for Wi-Fi. Worth every cent. The picture is crystal clear and the sound is pretty good.

                                              Only had the TV a few days, but overall VERY Satisfied with product. Very easy to set up. Great picture quality. Bought TV primarily for the LED feature, as we had shadows/reflections on other TV from lamps, etc... No reflections with this TV. NetCast very easy to set up. Had netflix going within minutes. We have hard wired for now, so can't speak to the wireles capabilities. Would be nice if they would include the wi-fi dongle
