What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An oldie, but a goodie! Have just re-calibrated one of my 2 LG 55LHXs. New techniques, new software, and more experience under my belt. This set has come alive and still looks great. I have had no regrets purchasing these sets, and they still are serving their purpose. (The other set, not re-calibrated recently, is on the dresser in the guest bedroom. Guests say it's like going to the drive in theatre!)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from LG 55L W5300 We bought this TV in December and from the moment we turned it on I was wowed by the quality of the picture, especially those in HD. The audio is another matter. It sounded very tinny when we first turned it on so I adjusted the audio which did little to nothing. Then it started buzzing, which has continued to this day. Very, very annoying. I would recommend this set to friends but warn them that they may have to purchase a good soundbar, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect TV for a wall mount application Perfect TV for my house. I wanted to place a new TV on a certain wall in my house but in doing that it would cause me to have some seriously long HDMI cables! It’s hard to explain here why but I began by checking prices for 30ft plus long cables and found the term wireless HD TV on a website. That peeked my interest obviously and I began researching. I figured it was too good to be true and didn’t work as good as advertised. I read several positive reviews and decided to give it a shot. Glad I did! The ease of hooking up the cables to the media box along with the TV’s feature of instantly searching for the wireless feed every time it’s turned on makes it so easy you forget its wireless. (Except when you look at the TV on the wall and you don’t see a bunch of wires hanging below it. You do have to have a power cable obviously but if you place the outlet behind the TV you don’t even see that cable! It’s just looks like a big picture hanging on the wall! My media box is only a few feet from the TV (I know I mentioned needing a 30 plus ft cable and I would have its just hard to explain the layout of the room/wall I’m talking about) and I normally have 3 bars on the wireless meter. I have it in a small cabinet with it facing away from the TV. If you were able to project the signal directly to the TV (line of site) I can get full strength (5 bars). That would require me to turn the media box around thus displaying the back of the unit and I didn’t want that to be visible. Nevertheless I’ve never lost signal but I have noticed a few lines that will occasionally appear on the TV when my kids are jumping around in front of the cabinet in our living room. Nothing that drastic and since it’s only happens occasionally I don’t mind it. Overall a great find and I couldn’t be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Ultimate TV now Found! Have purchased Sharpes. Sonys, Samsungs, and yes, even LGs, and was left wanting! Hearing that the Matte Screen TVs were becoming History, quickly purchased one of the few remaining 55LHXs: sight unseen! Just went by specs. Right out of the Box - My Ulimate TV was finally found! No Highly Reflective Screen, no Thin LED compromises, and the Blacks are Black. To this point, my 55LH90's I thought were Black. Next to the 55LHX, they're kinda Milky Black. The 55LHX is in, the 55LH90s have been deligated to the wife. I can't see wanting another set until the OLEDs come out! A touch of the Picture Wizard calibration, set Gamma to High and White Balance to Medium and voila - the unbelievable PQ of current times. (After Note: can't keep the wife off it! Have to keep sending her out of the room to her own set!) Sound - don't use TV speakers - have AVR surround sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unreal colors We carefully and thoroughly researched all sets available. We even made a special trip to the mainland to preview them. Without question, the 55LHX has the brightest colors and blackest black of any LED set. My wife and I conducted side-by-side comparisons and consistently selected the LG. This set is mounted in the bedroom and is truly over-the-top. We could NOT be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Monitor The 55LHX is an excellent monitor. The video quality is unmatched by any LCD/LED TV I looked at. The audio system has below average performance but a surround sound system will fix this issue. The wireless features are great. However there is connection interference when you walk between the receiver and the TV. Overall I am satisfied with my purchase.
