            Would buy again. Only 4 stars because apps could use more development. App for ipad, iphone on itunes app store as remote i find very useful. Netflix and internet works best with a bridge like the cisco wet610n or wes610n. Doggle ok but my wireless base about 40 feet away on 2 nd floor and tv on 1st floor. Could not get flashplayer to work so need to use youtube app from lg apps that doesnt save favorites or playlists. Surfs web well but keyboard would be faster. Everything else fantastic! Old movies bw look new, sports action flawless.

                I love my 3D LED TV; got it home and hooked it up--worked perfectly, had GR8 resolution & performed flawlessly!! My only problem is the fact that; once I hooked-up the HDMI.....most of the time, when I turn unit on; I will get a picture--but NO SOUND. I have to cycle power on/off several times until I have sound & picture. So far, HDMI has been the only input with this problem. LG blames the Time Warner Cable & TWC says it it a LG TV problem. I guess I "could" use co-axil input--but that wouold kinda DEFEAT the purpose of having an HD TV--wouldn't it?

                    Better 3D than Active

                        The 3D experience with passive 3D, vs active3D, is much more enjoyable. The glasses are lighter and more comfortable, and the images seem to have less ghosting, than with active 3D. One added comfort feature is the peace of mind you have, knowing that you don't have to worry about the battery, in your glasses, dying, or needing to be recharged, in the middle of a movie. In my experience, WIFI is not adequate to support 3D. I had to install a high speed Ethernet connection to get the online 3D samples to play properly. I've found the Magic Remote to be a bit unwieldy. It is difficult to accurately place to pointer on the screen. Also, the up, down, left, and right buttons on the manual remote need to be raised or otherwise changed to make them more tactile. It is difficult to feel the difference between the up arrow button and the Home button. I frequently missed the up arrow button and pushed the Home button, instead, until I put small self adhesive bumpers on my arrow keys to make it easier to differentiate them.

                        Pros

                        • All the connections options I could ever need
                        • Best looking TV out there

                        Comments about LG 55" 3D LED 1080p HDTV:

                        Bought this as a gift for the family this Christmas. This is a fantastic television for watching HD shows and BluRay movies. The picture is so crisp and clear it's incredible. Connecting to the internet was easy and definitely recommended so that you can check for updated firmware and use the additional goodies available (streaming and games). The sound is adequate, but not great - but then if you're purchasing a set like this you should probably have an external sound system anyway. Don't be fooled by the more expensive sets out there from other manufacturers; this set is a winner.

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        Compare anywhere you want, including online sites (yes that jungle site too). Then ABT will match the price and deliver better service. It's well worth paying the sales tax.

                                Great picture quality and nice 3d. On its own stand it put my old toshiba to shame, but once we moved and could hang it on the wall, WOW! Hooked it up with a BOSE Home Theater and now there's no reason to go to the movies! I just nuke some popcorn in my LG microwave and settle in to the movies I want to watch, when I want to watch them!

                                    Comments about LG 55" 3D LED 1080p HDTV:

                                    In the past I was debating which 3d TV to buy. Now I recommend everybody not to even think about active shutter 3D. Just go for cinema/passive 3D. I advise Sony and Samsung to work on passive 3D technology. We can not wear those heavy glasses any more. 3D on this TV is Amazing and you will hold your breath. Fantastic viewing angle, great depth, flicker free, super light glasse.

                                    Easy to setup. Had it running on the surround sound system in 10 minutes. 3D looks great. Even old DVD movies look great on this TV.
