The picture quality is wonderful flat out.From non-HD feeds there are no obvious picture quality loss. If you wish to pick a t.v. apart any t.v. will have something.This is quality television, it gives you what it says, even has info option to see what is being produced definition and processing (1080/120hz, 1080/60hz) and such.The 2D to 3D up convert is fun, my fiance and myself enjoy watching Netflix and using the up-convert.Bells & Whistles are nice.The 2D/3D, energy saving, awareness of surroundings, and ease of use remote. Comes with 3D glasses enough for family and light weight as well as comfortable, sometimes we forget we have them on.A little offset with the internet situation. There is an update for this television and the television itself will not pick up update, I am downloading it to computer and going to attempt through usb device.This television is not a SMART television, meaning it does not have apps nor are you able to obtain apps.The internet portion of this television is for updates (failure does not work) and for connecting television to media devices via local network ( Wonderful feature). This allows you to not be required to drag your computer or other devices around the house to connect directly to television.Performance is beautiful. I am a heavy gamer and a blu-ray fanatic as my fiance is as well. We watched Despicable Me in blu-ray as well as Prometheus and both in 2D and 3D up-convert. Enjoyed every moment of them. I even up-converted my video games. Took gaming to a whole new level. I have verified 3D through demo display and it is wonderful, we are now shopping for 3D movies in blu-ray.The whole Design of the television is superb. It is not an eyesore in any way. On or off it is wonderful to have.Don't be miss-led by others. I have heard many bad review on this specific television. I can assure you those reviewers do not understand what they are reviewing.Take note:LED/LCD are top of list for animated movies (Despicable Me etc.), as opposed to Plasma for non-animated (Prometheus etc.), LED's get high in brightness as opposed to Plasma's which keep dark for rich fuller texture and colors.60hz/120hz/240hz/600hz are the speed at which the television will correct and keep video stream flowing. The faster the speed the smoother/cleaner the picture. The more you use a television with these features the faster your eyes will adjust and you will enjoy. Then when you watch on a television with lower grade speeds will you notice the difference. Plasma's have the highest speeds for the time being.Plasma vs. LED or LCD. None is better then the other. It is comparing apples and oranges. To have the best of both worlds get both. It is all about how you want your television to serve you. Demo any television prior to purchasing that model. Size will make a difference in performance as well as television specs.Don't listen to anyone who attempts to sell you on either based on one being better quality. It is simple in that it is what you want to see brighter brights or darker darks.Pros: Quality crisp clean picture. Sharp smooth and soft. With the Intelligent sensor you get these features all at once. Every movies is corrected so there is no need to continuously change settings from game to cinema and other as it does it on its own, faster and with better accuracy. 2D/3D play is fun. Ease of use.Cons: The software update feature is not functional. As far as television doing what it says it does it and more.

NO TruMotion Control
It claims TruMotion 120 but there are no adjustments for this feature. REALLY? Back to the store it goes.

Comments about LG 55" Black 1080p LED HDTV:
bought the stainless version with freezer on top. Works for our situation because we could not use the two door. This was the largest version we could find. A little disappointed the salesman did not point out this model was not energy star but we are happy with the purchase.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This LED TV is awesome!
from Hilliard, OH
I've had this TV for a year now and have had no issues with it. Connected a soundbar to it and it sounds amazing. Thank you LG for your quality product.
Love the TV
from Beaumont, TX
Love the TV, and I only have 2 real complaints, well, not even really complaints. My first "complaint" is I wish there was at least 1 more HDMI. This one only has 2 and I wish I could plug in my DVR Xbox and PS3 into HDMI but can only have 2. Moved my DVR to the AV cables. So not really a big deal. My second "complaint" is the sound isn't as good as I was hoping. Going to be getting a sound bar soon. Some movies I'll have to crank it up to around 60 to hear parts, then when the action starts drop it down to around 20 so we don't wake the neighborhood. But for day to day use on cartoons and news it works perfectly.

excellent 3D view
from Austin, TX, USA
I really enjoyed this product, a great price for a 3D TV at a nice screen size. If only the true motion would of been more enhance, but I guess I need a 240hz and this one is at 120hz. Overall great TV for price I got it for, I do recommend it.
This product has a great picture
from Cibolo, TX, USA
This is a good tv for the price, nice crisp picture, easy to use features.
I wanted 3D and I got it!!!!!!
from Glenburn, ME, USA
I did a lot of research before buying this TV. I wanted 3d LED, smart dimming, and 2d to 3d conversion. I got all these and more. I didn't really care about smart tv as I already had a smart Blu-ray. So I saved a little by not having redundant features in the tv.
