      Television is our Main Entertainment so you might as well invest in a great TV.
      This TV has an Awesome Picture and more Configurability than I thought possible.
      I've found when it comes to picture clarity there is a balance between a (softer images) Anti-glare screen and Glossy screen (sharper images), you can't have both...

      This TV is great in bright lit rooms for 2d picture viewing. However, for 3d this TV currently lacks, "Cross talk" is a huge problem and it is better to wait for another generation of TVs or so if you really want 3d. I upgraded from an old 42 inch LCD on this TV, and the edge lit LEDs on this TV make this thin and wonderful. Black levels and color clarity are a great. Really the only thing lacking from this TV is the 3d working better. If they could reduce the cross-talk of this TV with some more firmware, this would be one of the best purchases of my life. As it stands right now, it's still a good purchase, just don't get your hopes up about the 3d on this TV.

                      THIS IS THE BEST PRODUCT WE HAVE EVER PURCHASED. THIS IS ONE TOTALLY AWESOME TV! MY HUSBAND GOT THIS FOR ME BACK IN 2010 AFTER SURGERY AND A LENGTHY STAY IN THE HOSPITAL(19 DAYS, 10 IN CCU) WITH DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS . I WAS IN VERY BAD SHAPE AND WAS TOLD TO KEEP THE LEG ELEVATED AND STAY OFF IT TOTALLY. SO HE BOUGHT THIS TV. WE LOVE IT SO MUCH. YOU JUST CAN'T GO WRONG WITH ANY LG PRODUCT. WE EVEN WENT BACK OUT AND BOUGHT THE SURROUND SOUND SYSTEM TO GO WITH IT. I WILL NEVER BUY ANYTHING UNLESS IT IS AN LG PRODUCT. WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR ANOTHER TV FOR THE BEDROOM, LG OF COURSE. IM TELLING YOU, IF YOUR IN THE MARKET FOR A NEW TV, OR SURROUND SYSTEM, WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU GET THE LG EXPERIENCE, WE DID AND WE DIDN'T GO WRONG!

                          I had a old box big screen handed down to me called Goliath. I looked at a lot of television brands and decided to go with LG. I got the television at an unbeatable price for 1499 including a 3D Bluray player and 4 pair of glasses 1 year ago. Its never let me down and its great to entertain guest with the 3D experience. I was skeptical about quality because of the price but a year later its never let me down. I am an LG customer for life...

                                  Great picture, easy to use menu. 3d picture is great, but the apps only worked right for a while. The second firmware update would not take and due to this the apps would no longer function. If the apps would continue to work even without update my review would be all five stars. I am still working with LG to fix this issue.

                                      I'll start by saying out of the 6 TVs I have purchased over the years, this is by far the best TV I have purchased! The picture is outstanding and the amount of customization with the features given to you is quite fantastic. The 3D is really good, except I personally have experienced a decent amount of crosstalk while viewing 3D content. I'm not sure if everyone has this problem, but it can be a little frustrating at times. If 3D is not an issue for you, then I 100% recommend this TV for you! If not, than you may look into a Passive 3D TV.

                                          This is our second lg tv. We bought the first one which is a 32 inch and our first hdtv. We were considering a bigger one to replace a home entertainment center when we found this. I wasn't really interested in 3d but the price was so good I couldn't turn it down. I am so glad I decided to do this. This television is incredible and watching 3d on a 55 inch screen is unbelievable. Couldn't be happier with both tvs. My family loves to come over just to watch the 3d. SUPER PRODUCTS.

                                              We have owned other LG products and have always been happy with design and function. We purchased the 55LX6500 last November and are very happy with the quality of the picture and the many features, especially HD and 3D. Friends and neighbors who have seen this TV are very impressed with the quality of the picture in comparison to whatever brand they have. We are completely satisfied with our LG TV and accessories.
