      This is a good sized TV with sharp colors, which makes the TV watching very enjoyable. The mouse is a little tricky but you'll get used to it as you practice more. In some sites you might need the Adobe Flash to view videos, which is not available on this TV yet. The Netflix doesn't have a User Friendly interface, which I hope will improve in time. Other than that, this is an excellent product you won't regret.

      Having never owned an LG product before and hearing about how high quality their product's are, I was pretty excited to get this TV. It is very easy to set up and the variety of built-in apps is convenient. The mouse like extra remote is fun to play with, but not used regularly in our house. I need to research how to install additional software since Flash is not built in which is kind of silly since you can surf the internet. My major complaint with this TV is the picture quality. I have been very disappointed with how blurry moving items are on the screen. Something does not have to be moving very quickly and I will see a blur behind it. This is extremely distracting and makes me feel like I spent a lot of my hard earned money on a low quality item. I thought this was an issue with Netflix streaming, but it happens with DVD's and Blu-Rays as well. All of the additional features are great, but this TV fails miserably in what it should do best. I would not recommend this TV. I am disappointed that I am stuck with this for the foreseeable future since I can't just spend this kind of money on something better. Brand reputation did not deliver in this case.

          We enjoy the clear large picture. Ease of use with the remote wand is an excellent feature. Our picture is just as clear whether we are using satellite or antenna, DVD or internet.

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

              I love everything about this TV - We looked for months before deciding on this TV. We wanted 46" or bigger, 3D, 240hz, LED, HDTV. Although this tv is 120hz, we are seriously happy with it. It came with 6 3d glasses that are big enough to fit over prescription glasses and small enough for my 3 year old to wear. The remote is awesome - it behaves as a "mouse cursor" on a computer screen which isn't overly sensitive to motion nor does it have any "lag"... With the click of a 3D button on the remote, you can change anything you are watching into 3D - pop on your 3D glasses and you're good to go!! Some things are more impressive than others - we watch the thanksgiving parade in 3D; football; movies; and tv shows like "the voice"; we even play some wii games in 3D - so its really a neat feature! The TV is heavy, but its really big so thats expected, but despite its size and weight, its so thin compared to other models we looked at. Being a SmartTV, it has a number apps built in and ready to use!! Setting up internet wasn't hard at all - we just typed in our wireless network information and boom - its always on. We have surround sound system that we use, but the TV sound is fine - I would prefer more bass, but I haven't fiddled with those settings because we have the sound system.

                  Great looking picture. The wi fi portion of the tv is a great addition. The auto off feature is great for when the tv is left on for to long. This is my first LG product and I am completely satisfied with my purchase. Have had my tv for almost a year and no problems. I just wish they would tell me what the updates are when they come.( bug fixes ext )

                                      tv overall good for the price BUT if you want to use on the internt ther is no Flash plaer so you options are limited. Why LG has not installed Flash is beyond me since it is the most common player on the internet. Other minor problem there is some backlighting bleed with dark images on screen. Positive note: Magic Remote is great.

                                          Where do I start? Picture quality is such that you feel like your in the studio as it is being shot. With the included LG Wireless LAN Adapter, Plug-in, answer a couple of questions and your on line utilizing your home wireless router. Magic Motion remote is really cool! This baby has all the connection ports you will need. From the ease of assembly to the quick and painless start-up this TV keeps the pleasure coming with the added features of the LG Apps function and the seemless navigation to your online world and streaming video source.

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

                                              We decided to upgrade our tv for my wifes birthday. We all love the quality of the tv hooked up to blueray, but even the cable looks fantastic. The increase 120hz means alot, and I couldn't go backwards. The smart tv features are great for entertainment, we games and get online using the tv frequently, which is enhanced with the magic motion remote. My kids call it the wiimote for the tv, and love streaming movies and playing games. Theres nothing at all I would want to add to the television, even the sound, when I'm not using my home theater, is superior to other tvs.
