Pros Like the size and the simple remote control. Picture is sharp and colors seem true.
Cons Not a lot of black contrast.
Summary I bought this TV to replace my 46" Samsung which is now in the bedroom. The reason I wanted this one is the reviews I read said that with a little tweaking the blacks can be improved. I did just that and added some LED back lighting and it looks great. I really like the larger screen for movie viewing. And with a good surround system your in the theater with out the hassle. Good TV for the price.
Pros thin profile
looks good on wall
Cons picture quality not there
connectors can be a challenge, if hanging on wall
changing picture options makes minimal picture difference
Summary I'm not a tech expert by any means, but I know when a TV picture looks good, and this one falls short of expectations.
It was bought just before Thanksgiving, as a Christmas gift from my mother, and had been sitting in mom's basement just waiting for Christmas day. Since I knew we were getting it, I prepared the living room wall ahead of time with all the wiring and receptacle plates etc,so it(and a blu Ray,Wii,and cable box)could go right up. I did recently read some reviews of this model, which were not encouraging but, I hoped for the best anyway. Well, I must say that the other reviewers were right about the picture quality. It's really just not very impressive. Even on HD channels, it just looks a little blurry. I did try adjusting the picture controls, but nothing really improved it. I have a friend that has a Samsung HDTV, a few years old, and the picture is really good on most all channels. My family thinks it looks fine, but I know LED televisions are capable of much nicer graphics.
I would not recomend this TV, as there are many others to choose from in the same size and price range. Read reviews before you buy! No TV seems to get 5 stars, but you can definitely see trends, positive or negative on specific products.
Pros Great Size to price. Good quality video, and more pixels than an average hdtv. Where a lot of HDTV's have part of a picture cut off at the edges, and sides, this one has excess pixels, the entire picture is in and viewable!
Cons Have to adjust the picture manually to get best results, found ideal settings online, posted on cnet.
Summary Great value for a 55" LG HDTV, would buy another if needed!
Pros NICE PAPER WEIGHT AND DECORATION
Cons ours died in less than 5 months....yes 5 months and lg gave the run around and never even had the part!!
Summary SAVE YOUR MONEY TIME AND AGGRAVATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TOOK OVER A MONTH JUST TO GET OUR EXTENDED WARRANTY TO REPLACE IT AND NOW WE GOT SCREWED BECAUSE LG MAKES CRAPPY PRODUCTS!!! HORRIBLE HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE< LIE AFTER LIE!!!! SO WHEN THEY TELL YOU LIFES GOOD< ONLY FOR THEM SINCE THEY JUST TAKE YOUR MONEY!!!
