What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stunning HD Quality Excellent HD Quality- beautiful picture. Plenty of inputs. Good features. Better than average SD quality. Very nice looking bezel. Two downsides: Due to the reflective coating, there is an annoying reflection (along with rainbow-colored lines emanating in an x pattern from the reflection) on the screen of light sources in the room.. it can be very distracting as you can see this regardless if the tv is on or off (if your lights are high enough in the ceiling, very dim, or shine from behind the tv, this won't be an issue). Also, when displaying 1920x1080 via the VGA input, the image is skewed so you lose the right-most part of the image. Despite these two gripes, people are always wowed by the HD quality of the tv. Without the two issues (and if the SD quality was a little bit better) I would have rated this TV 5 stars. Overall a very nice tv, and a great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase!!!! The LG television we bought is excellent! I bought a different brand 60" but didn't like the picture quality nor the sound once I got it hooked up. I returned it and purchased this LG 55". I previously had a 47" LG and moved that to the family room for the family to play Xbox 360. The picture quality is great and I have never had problems with the old television either.
