LG makes the best 4K panels.

So this TV is the only 4K panel I've owned so far, I certainly considered the OLED TV but for half it's cost this honestly is a great TV. Obviously when you're looking at the higher price brackets OLED becomes part of the discussion but in my case this TV is going to do fine for a couple years until OLED is a bit further along. I'd really like to test out the HDR features that are defining this year's high end models but the HDR content is very scare at the moment. I may update this review at a later time when I can ascertain the quality difference and if it's worth it.
WEBOS3 is far smoother than I imagined having never owned a smart TV. Honestly I'll probably never use the smart features as the first thing hooked to this monster was a high end HTC (Home Theater PC) so those goodies are rendered moot for me, however I did poke around them and they ran perfectly with no hang ups so for people are going to use the Netflix app and it's kin don't be concerned.
The set did come with the color tone set to a low warm by default so if your picture has a yellow hue to it go into the expert settings and fiddle with the temperature setting. A simple fix, but odd to see one enabled as a default setting. If you're too lazy to properly calibrate the thing then Cinema mode is probably the best default but it really is rewarding to properly calibrate a panel.
All in all I'm happy with my purchase, sure you could get the much cheaper Samsung panel and I'm sure the picture is great for some people, but the far superior 4K upscaling combined with true 120hz panel with up to 240hz "Tru motion" make this my favorite TV purchase BY FAR that I've ever made. You won't be sorry.

Reviews said the tv was dim and not very bright. I have this tv in a very bright room with lots of sunlight and have no problem. The remote is awesome and picture is phenomenal. If your considering this tv, you won't be disappointed.

Bug needs to be fixed.
Posted by: Timmy from: on
The picture and color quality on this model is phenomenal! HOWEVER, there is a glitch with this model that causes the picture to eventually fade out and NOT come back. TV worked perfect the first few days but then started fading out after being on for a few seconds. Sound worked great but no picture at all. Each subsequent day it took longer to come back in until about a the 5th day when it never came back. When we set up to exchange the TV the customer service rep said there have been many similar complaints with this model.

After reading many reviews, I narrowed my choice to this LG and a Samsung. The reviews of both were very helpful, but I was having trouble deciding between them. Some friends of ours purchased this LG and they loved it, so I decided to go with the LG. Setup was very easy and it is the perfect size for our medium size living room. Picture quality is fantastic and the Harmon Kardon built in speakers produce good quality sound. There is no motion blur with fast moving sports and movies. The remote is a little cumbersome to use, but is not a deal breaker. I don't use the streaming feature much, but have used the Amazon App without issue. This TV does not have the capability to stream directly from the Internet without an installed App or connected computer. Again, no big problem, I just hook up my laptop to live stream college football games I can't get otherwise. I highly recommend this television and don't regret my purchase one bit.

I purchased this TV based on Consumer Reports ratings for LG TV's. I am not disappointed. I am very pleased with the picture quality. My only complaint is that the TV remote instruction sheet is terrible. It is basically worthless in giving information on how to use the remote. This remote is a "pointer" type where you point at the screen and then click to make something happen. It is frustrating to use.

But the picture... Oh my God, the picture...
Posted by: CedricDaButcher from: on
This tv is utterly fantastic. I fell in love with it the moment I plugged it in! The clarity, the colors, the wow! It's a little confusing, figuring out the menu options. It was kind of like going from a pager to a smart phone, in the space of a day. But it isn't THAT hard to finally figure out. The picture is just... freaking... awesome...

Don't buy. Had issues after only 30 days
Posted by: Disappointed from: on
Starting getting lines in Tv after 30 days. Contacted LG and they told me its more than likely not covered, said I probably damaged it, considering that it's been in the same spot since we got it, not sure how that could be. Gave me a local service rep. Had to contact multiple times. Set up an appointment and they never showed. Called LG back again and they gave me 2 other service reps to try. One said I would have to bring it 30 miles to them just to have it looked at. The other service rep is atleast trying to help. My Tv is now going on 3 weeks of on and off use. It started with just a few lines, if you turned it off for awhile, it would work again. Now it happens all the time. So I basically have a non working Tv that I'm not sure how much it is going to cost to fix.

I needed a new TV for the living room, after trying several Samsung 4K 55" TV's from Sears (I had a gift card) and having multiple out of the box problems, I had the manager put the refund onto a credit card and went to Best Buy. After speaking with the TV specialist and not wanting another Samsung, I moved to the LG 4K 55" and love it, my wife changes the mode based on what we are watching and the color and clarity is incredible. Since it is a Smart TV, there are a lot of menu's to go through and verify. My non-technical wife went through the menu's while I was at work and made some minor tweaks to some strange settings just to see what they would do, and now she loves everything about the TV. We have had this TV since May 15th, and I am still amazed at the vivid color and it's clarity. This is a MUST buy and I HIGHLY recommend it to anybody.

Amazing, had Full LG 1080P 120HZ Previous 48"
Posted by: TheMightyThor from: Michigan on
So far so good, I pray it delivers like my last three LG 50" HDTV's over the last ten years, all high end like this. It's amazing. I also paired it with Monster and Rocketfish 2.0/3.0 HDMI HDR 4K cables and the latest Samsung 4K UHD HDR Player (the only one made currently)! The pairing once tuned to desired specs is unparalleled. There are things like sunlight and rain across the screen that never showed in previous viewings. I got a few 4K UHD HDR Blu Rays like The Martian and Mad Max Fury Road, wow! They are perfect, the upscale of my Blu Rays are near the same quality which is refreshing that I need not replace all my collection to 4K discs, just start investing now and for favorites. Overall I gave it a five currently, hoping it holds its quality and longevity like my previous. LG is quality, usually, so hope so. Otherwise I'd say overall this is the best 55" I've seen in store and online and the price is outstanding. You can easily get into every thing you need for the latest 4K UHD HDR 240HZ for under 1500 on sale, this includes a few of the latest movies. I had to replace my aging sets so timing was spot on. It's expensive but truly worth it and overall not gouging to get all at that price, as long as the units hold up. This set also has 10 and Dolby Digital and HDR which is unusual, a lot of the sets only have one or the other I'm seeing. The store near me put them on sale 300 off, fifty sets (full stock) sold in the week, crazy price, the player was also 85 off, also good.

Incredible TV for an incredible price.
Posted by: David from: on
This TV is absolutely stunning. I went into Best Buy to purchase a 50" Vizio P-Series and the sales rep recommended this TV to me instead. It was on sale for the same price as the P-Series, 5" bigger, and overall a much better TV. After a week and a half, I'm convinced that leaving the store with this TV was the best decision. I don't currently have any 4K content to watch on the TV, but it wonderfully upscales 1080p content to 4K and looks gorgeous. Season 2 of Netflix's Narcos looks razor sharp and the resolution is out of this world. Gaming is a sublime experience on this; Uncharted 4, in particular is jaw-dropping. The colors are so vibrant. I'm also a big fan of the included apps built into the TV as well as the "Magic Remote" which functions kind of like a mouse. Overall, I would say this TV is an excellent purchase and I am positively ecstatic about it.
