Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV This is a great TV. The HD and 3D looks great. (3D is much better than I expected) and you can't beat the Apps available on smart TV. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just keeps getting better! Great addition to our home theater. 55" LCD that is as clear and vivid as any I've seen. Sound is great and features are mostly intuitive. I highly recommend LG products and especially this particular HDTV. Fantastic buy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great TV! I've had it for about 4 months now and have a few things about its performance: 1: The screen size is perfect. Very glad I didn't settle for 46" or shell out a few hundred more for 60" 2: Perfect for gaming. Yes, it is true, the whites are just a little dirty, or grungy, or yellowish, but it really is not a problem and the screen is just the right size for a couch 6-8 ft. away. 3: The sound is a bit off sometimes when run simultaneously with an amplifier right off the cable box. This is annoying only sometimes. And hilarious others. I mean, you think it'd be plug and play. Ah well. 4: Hookups a-plenty. I haven't had a need for more and don't use the many provided. 5: Swivel stand is f'ing beautiful. 6: Screen reflection is minimal 7: Speakers on the set are darn good. Surprisingly good, actually; great spread and not too tinny. Though it is tinny. Just not too tinny, ya dig? 8: Looks pretty sleek and slim, though I wouldn't call it light or thin. Yet, it is attractive. 9: Love the screen saver feature. 10: The various options for setting up your picture will keep you busy for days. Not everything makes sense, but a lot of trial and error will getcha the picture you would like. Also, the fact that you can save presets --one for say, gaming, one for movies and one for regular ol' TV watching -- is really cool. 11: The TV is a snap to set up, the menus are a cinch to navigate. Really, there isn't much to not like about this TV. Unless you're into the hottest picture money can buy and if you truly were, then you wouldn't be purchasing an LCD, would you? 12: In summation: this is an excellent TV and I do not hesitate in recommending it wholeheartedly to anyone who is a part-time gamer / netflix aficionado like me. PROS: Size, sound, connectivity, and picture settings cannot be beat for the price. I think. Though, admittedly, I do not own, nor have I owned any other 55" LCD flat screen televisions. Still, I imagine that if I found one with a better picture, I probably would be paying more. CONS: The picture, from what I understand, isn't as hot as other models in a higher price range. Right. Well, without having an extraordinary concern for my whites challenging the sun with their refulgence or for my blacks enveloping all light within their gravitational pull, uh, this TV's picture looks just fine. Seriously. No ethernet plug, but, if you haven't checked out the connections yet and are surprised by that, shame on you. Besides, all it takes is buying a Roku or a gaming system and BAM! you've got the interwebnets right at your fingertips. I really don't understand the bad reviews, man. I think most of the people who complain about a lousy picture, probably haven't taken the time to adjust it out of the box. Or they were expecting far too much. But seriously, the picture is not bad at all. Especially when you start rocking a movie or two on your couch with your significant other. It's like having your own personal theater. DO IT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly Versatile The 55lk520 has 3 HDMI, 2 AV, 1 RGB and RGB audio and headphone inputs plus a set of component inputs. I've used nearly all of them. A wireless dongle for watching NetFlix on TV, RGB connections for projecting emails, Facebook, Twitter on the big screen, 2 Xboxes, 2 Playstations, and a dual deck DVD-VHS. All function flawlessly. The DVD-VHS is old technology so picture quality is not as good as it could be with a blu-ray player but that's not the 520's fault. The picture quality for network TV, games, and movies is excellent. This is a true gamer's TV. High resolution and no motion problems make for great gaming. I've had this TV for about 4 months and run it hard and long with no problems(up to 36 hours straight playing games with 6 pots of coffee to stay awake day after day). The astonishing feature is the vast number of options for for tweeking the picture quality until it's just right. In addition 4 separate picture mode that can be programmed to individual tastes(off,sports,cinema,and games). Top-of-line TV at an affordable price.
