Rated 5 out of 5 by Clark great set!
have had the 55LW5300 for about a year now and love it! great value, reliable, great quality. you can spend a lot more, but I don't know why! bought the 3D home theatre setup a few weeks ago and they integrate nicely. both a excellent find in my book. I did a lot of research on these two units.

Rated 1 out of 5 by monkeyman It's an ok bundle but not great.
Let me start by saying I may not be your average reviewer. I work in AV support at a large well know company. I know good AV when I see it and I HAVE seen it when I had my 47LD650. That was an amazing TV - thanks LG! So when I saw this bundle (the 47LW5300 and 3D BR-player) I thought that LG would blow my sock off again. Alas I am (really) disappointed with the TV's ability to upscale/trumotion/keep-up etc etc. My LD650 was flawless. I was VERY excited every time I used it. The Trumotion was fantastic and kept up well without any pixellation. But I had to turn off the Trumotion on this LW5300 because it was honestly just that bad. I can't bear to sit and watch the blurriness and pixellation it produces when the Trumotion is turned on. I must say I "enjoy" the overall 3D experience produced by consumer large screen tv's but I am sorry I bought this tv. I feel very let down by a brand that I thought the world of when I had my LD650. It was #and is# a cheap in every sense of the word bundled tv and BR-player. What did my LD650 have that this LW5300 doesn't? Is it a different processor? I would very much like an LG professional to re-gain my trust in LG TV's. Everytime I sit down to watch something I think and dream of my LD650 and how good it was and then look at my LW5300 and realise this is what I am stuck with. I know it's my choice to have this #cheap# 3D tv over my yearned-for 2D LD650 #yes I buy all the latest 3D movies and watch them on my LW5300 and it looks, well, just ok#, and I keep it only because I am truly hooked on 3D. But please steer clear of this model. That said it is sturdy and cosmetically looks nice. Overall it is simply a cheap TV #bundle# and not worth it. I wish I could exchange it for a replacement to see if it is simply a lemon. How about it LG; will you replace it for me? I honestly believe LG is a quality brand and look out for LG products, but this purchase has disappointed me greatly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kmil2072 Great TV with outstanding picture quality.
I've had this TV about a year now and I love it. The picture quality is amazing, especially with movies such as Avatar and Oz. The included 3D Blu-Ray player is great, too. I only replaced it because I wanted a Home Theater system, so I got the LG BH6830SW. The two of them together are the perfect 3D viewing experience. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Don Can't beat this package for the price
I have had this TV package for nearly a year and half now. I have no complaints about it's quality, though an easier to use menu would be great. The quick menu works great, but a little hard to understand the functions. Mainly the picture size and quality.
It has great 3D view, especially since you use none powered type 3D glasses. Don't need to worry about battery dying or extra wires.
The only other thing I would chage is the HDMI ports: make them 20 or 30 degree angle out the back so it is easier to mount the TV on the wall. Coming striaght out the back, or 90 degrees makes it hard to mount the TV to a wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Graphyte Great performance & value.
Features and performance are awesome. I didn't need or want SMART so I believe not having it in this model helped to keep the cost down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bdalton This TV has the best picture of any i've owned
The 55LW5300 has great picture quality and a variety of settings for all types of shows. As usual, the speakers aren't that great but I use a Bose surround system when i need better sound quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by griff78 Great product for a great value
Ever since going to the theater to see the 3d re-release of avatar, I'd been doing research on the new series of 3d tv's. My older (1995) 50" flat panel projection tv was still compatible with most components, but it had no hdmi inputs, and it was starting to show it's age (not to mention it weighed 300 lbs vs. the 60lbs of this tv). It's hard to look for a smaller tv to replace a big screen, but I decided to wait out the inevitable price drop. This tv was offered for about $150 less than the major electronics stores were offering, and I wanted the passive 3d, so I could utilize the glasses I'd been issued for the movie theater 3d movies. The 3d imaging looks very comparible to the actual theater experience. The dvd player works great, the picture is very clear, whether you are watching it in 2d or 3d mode. The big thing I've noticed, is that movies that were FILMED using 3d cameras gives the appearance of things on the screen coming right up to your face. Movies that had simply been given 3d in post-production typically show few things with great depth, but in most cases, so far, the depth is more general. For example: a 3d documentary I have about the oceans, has so much depth (it was filmed using 3d cameras) that some of the fish appear to almost swim close enough to look you in the eyes. And with the final Harry Potter film (not filmed with 3d cameras), the depth is typically contained within the screen's limits, except for the occasional spell and some destruction that appear to fly out of the tv. There are an amazing number of features, which after 8 months, I've finally begun to realize the many options available with this LG kit that can completely be personalized to meet your viewing needs. Fantastic picure, no matter what you're watching or playing. A great product, excellent price, and a reputable company. I couldn't have been much happier with anything else. By the way, Shark Week in 3d looked pretty wild. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by J0807 Great LED 3D TV
I wasn't looking for a 3D TV at the time but I couldn't pass up this deal. It came with the Blu-Ray player and four sets of glasses. The 3D looks great. Sound is OK but I have the LG Soundbar which helps out, too. Overall, for the price, it's a great TV.
