Review 1 for LG 55" Class Cinema 3D LED-LCD 1080p 120Hz Internet Smart TV HDTV, 1.6" ultra-slim, 55LW5600

My first experience with 3D

Though I did not buy my TV from Walmart, I did get this same model, and felt they needed a review here.
I have had this TV for about 5 days now. It came well packaged with 2 remotes (one being the Wii-like remote), instructions, stand, wifi usb adapter, and batteries for both remotes.
Getting it set up: certainly try and get someone to help you. I managed it by myself, but it's just too risky on something this expensive. Not that it's extremely heavy (no more than my older 42"), but more that it's big and awkward to handle.
Connecting: I had to do some swapping of connections for this TV, as they've done away with S-Video. Take the time to see what you have as far as cables and connections, and check what this TV has. Plan on how you want to connect so you can be sure everything will work. I had to pick up a Optical Digital Audio cable for my surround sound receiver. Aside from that, everything went really well. All the HDMI conections are on the left, flat against the TV so they don't stick out perpindicular to the the back of the TV if you were to mount it on the wall.
Turning it on: The settings right out of the box were good, but not the best. Some basic settings like Cinema and Game change it a bit, but it has Expert1and Expert2 where you can tweek just about everything to do with the picture. I found some settings online in a forum that really improved picture quality. If you go this route, be prepared to spend some time setting it up. The TruMotion effect on the TV gives it a weird "soap opera" look to it. I tried a less intrusive setting, but the wife still didn't like it so I finally turned it off. The picture itself is wonderful. Lighting is even, colors are bright, and with my custom settings, blacks are wonderful. I have standard definition satellite and it looks great at 12' on the couch.
3D: I haven't had much experience with this yet, other than to play with the 2D-3D conversion of some TV and PS3 game. It certainly ads an appearance of depth to the image, but if the true 3D isn't any better (which I hear it is), then I might have passed on a set with this feature. But I got a good deal on it, and the passive 3D glasses are cheap (and it comes with 4). Be back at least about 8 feet, or the picture shows lines from the altered image. Also, some people report that the 3D might not be as good if you aren't looking at the TV straight on. That it could be worse if the TV is mounted up high like above a fireplace.
I have read some people on forums reporting lag from their gaming systems. I have a PS3 connected with a new 3D rated HDMI cable and I do not notice any input lag. I've mostly played Black Ops online the past few days and haven't noticed any. The 2D-3D in this game is pretty neat, I have to admit. Gives it depth.
Be prepared to adjust the settings for other inputs, as the originals for TV do not carry over to other input sources.
Sound: I wasn't expecting much from such a thin TV. For good sound, you need space for the speakers which you don't have in a thin TV. But I have to admit, these sound great for normal TV viewing. And if I want to go loud, I turn on the surround sound.
In all I'm very pleased with it.

So I've had my TV for some time now, and I'm very happy with it. I've used USB flash drives to play videos on the TV, I've streamed content directly from a computer to the TV through my Wi-Fi, and even found an app that can stream content from my Samsung Fascinate Android phone!
I also purchased Tron 3D to finally try out the full potential of this TV. I have to say, I'm VERY impressed. Things really do look like they are coming out of the TV. I was originally concerned since I wasn't too impressed with the 2D->3D up-conversion. But I must say, the actual 3D capability of this TV is far above and beyond the up-conversion. My 4 yr old son was wearing the glasses and was walking toward the TV trying to touch the menu at the bottom of the screen like it was floating in the air.
The 3D effect still feels weird, and I'm not sure I'll watch a lot of movies in 3D (their aren't many available anyway), but that may change as I get used to it.

I have had my new LG TV for about three weeks. I had no problems setting it up over the course of several days. I also upgraded my Dish subscrition and had to learn how to use it The number of inputs made the job simple as I have Blu-ray, DVD for music, VCR, Laser disc player, and computer input. Input selection was easy as it is on screen and you can rename the inputs from HDMI to VCR., Sattelite, Blu-ray or what ever. I have also used my flash drive to show pictures. Connected easily to my wireless computer network and worked like a charm The sound is acceptable, however, I used a large receiver for surround sound. I like the feature that you can completely shut off the TV sound and still use the TV output through my receiver. That way I don't have to switch input on my reciever. The picture is great I have made no special adjustments. The 3D conversion works really well and brings a special feeling to some of my older DVD's and football. Surfing the web works well and I can get and read my email on the TV and search the web. The Smart remote is very handy as my wife is not a techie and she can handle the TV the way she wants. Dd I all ready say the picture is grrrreat. I like LG products as they seem to offer many extra little features that others do not have. The printed manual is OK for starters and the manual on the CD explains everything in detail. There is very little reflection in a well lit room due to the matte screen. To sum up...Good price, good delivery, great picture, great features.

This is the best tv that you can buy. I had a Sony that almost cost $3000.00 and this is much better and cost almost the half of the Sony.

More speakers: get surround sound. The speakers included in the TV are actually pretty good given how thin the TV is. speakers need "space" to sound good, and you just don't get that with these thin TVs, but I can't complain about mine for normal TV viewing.
More glasses: it already comes with 4 pair. and additional glasses can be purchased from many major retailers for a fraction of the price of a single pair of active 3D glasses.
Autoshutoff: it has a sleep timer, and you can even set auto ON/OFF times. and I believe if it doesn't have a signal for 15 min, it shuts off.
