Great first HD flatscreen TV
Having lived long enough with that old analog TV missing 1/3 of the image and with no detail, OMG, this LG was the one to upgrade to!
Out-of-the-box perfect. Color, HD quality, passive 3D, Magic Remote Wand is better than I expected. Visiting family and friends would rather watch my LG TV than visit.
As is common with most flat screen TVs, the built-in speakers are adequate but an LG speaker bar solved that problem. My LG TV came with 6 pairs of passive 3D glasses so even my guests can watch.
Not thrilled about the included apps, though. Accessing YouTube through the included internet browser than with the included YouTube app gave much better control especially with the wand and a qwerty interface. The browser has a tendency to run out of memory and crash. I assumed the TV was Skype ready, but didn't know that you needed an optional LG camera to use the included app. The optional camera was such poor quality, I just stick to my desktop computer for Skype.
Wish movie studios would turn out even more 3D content because the quality on this HD TV with Cinema 3D is awesome and the ability to connect wirelessly to my desktop media files is awesome. Did I write awesome twice? I meant it!

Should be good for another decade
Really like the tiny bezel, setup was easy enough, the magic remote is a little finicky at times but once you get used to its shortcomings you can guess when it's not going to do what you want. Amazon Prime Instant is pretty good, but you'll want a decent internet connection. At first I tried out the 3D conversion a few times a week, but it's just too much of a hassle now. The biggest downside I can think of is that I need a separate remote to control the LG soundbar it's hooked up to, but that's more of a limitation on the soundbar than the TV.

I've owned my LG 55in 7600 series 3D HDTV for 1 year now and am completely satisfied with its picture quality, features and performance. I also purchased a LG 3D Blu-Ray Player and a LG Sound Bar at the same time and am pleased with all the equipment. The remote control is unique and I do like the design. It's simple and very convenient. The Passive 3D system was a major reason for choosing LG over others that use the Active system. That and the known quality and performance of LG allowed me to choose LG with confidence. I have not been disappointed.

It will break right after warranty is up!
Was in love with this TV when I first bought it (sort of).
Took me 3 returns to best buy to get one that wasn't screwed up from uneven lighting.
When I got one that worked it was great. Picture was great, features were good.
Now 14 months in to ownership (2 mos out of warranty) a pixel cluster has gone dead that results in a 1/4" grey spot on the screen with a black center and now lighting has gotten more uneven like the ones I returned and the bottom corner is always brighter than the rest of the TV. LG - GET SOME QUALITY CONTROLS ON YOUR MANUFACTURING!
If you think you might have any issues do something about it before your warranty is up so you're not stuck like me!
