5 out of 5 eggswhat the? I don't even...

Pros: Absolutely blown away by the bright, crisp movement and picture. This is far and away the best tv I've ever owned. Some people have complained that there aren't enough HDMI slots in this model (there are three), but who buys a tv like this and doesn't have an A/V receiver with at least two to four more HDMI inputs?

Cons: I guess my electric bill is going to go up a bit. I should charge people a cover fee for house parties to balance this out

Other Thoughts: This screen is huge! Make sure you have enough viewing space. I sit about 12' back to watch tv and scoot up a bit to play PS3. Even from these distances the screen is ginormous. I can't get over how beautiful the image is. And lucky me, I got the TV for $702 after tax because it was the display model at the store. It's like they paid me a few hundred dollars to wipe some fingerprints off of the bezel and screen. (they are fingerprint magnets! keep your nasty paws away from them!)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Choice!!

Pros: easy to navigate menus, clear selection choices, gorgeous picture, great sound quality, sturdy construction. The picture wizard is really cool in getting the best picture.

Cons: Zero so far but I've only had this a few days.

Other Thoughts: CEVA did my delivery and while they got it here earlier than scheduled (1 week allotted timeframe), the guy set an appointment with me but was about 3 hours late.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Qualty TV

Pros: The picture is great! What's not to like??? Play around with the Picture/Color/Heat settings to get it looking good.

Built-in speakers have great sound quality, considering they are the built-in speakers! Plenty of inputs on the back so we can hook up all the HDMI, RCA, and PC connector devices we have. Hanging the TV is easy with 2 people. It comes with long VESA screws in the box, but I went to the local hardware store and got some better looking ones that I know are good quality. I used a generic mounting bracket with 4 bolts into the studs and it is rock solid.

What else can I say - "it is a 55 inch TV" :) Picture quality is outstanding with the newer movies. Detail on DVD movies I haven't noticed before is apparent on this screen. The picture quality has definitely met my expectations.

I also bought the extended warranty to help resolve any issues I might have. Worth the extra peace of mind to avoid potential hassles. Always read the fine print on warranty i

Cons: The base on the built-in speakers causes a tinny vibration sound on the bezel. Annoying yes, but then again, who uses ONLY the built-in speakers? I have yet to install my surround speakers so we're using the built-in speakers until then. Because of that you can't turn up the volume for movies over 66 or so unless you turn off the "voice correction" audio feature. That does reduce it some. Once again, who uses only the internal speakers on a 55" TV? I intend to use surround sound speakers so we are living with the vibration for now. It is enough that the wife commented on it.

The built-in owner's manual is generic for all LG TV's so it is really useless. You can look at the back connectors and walk through the menus with the remote to get more information from the manual. I have been told there are TV user groups online to help squeeze every bit of performance from the picture signal adjustments but have yet to search this out. I got it from "good" to "great" in 15 minutes

Other Thoughts: 16:9 works on most movies, but some old movies still have a black stripe all around the picture. I discovered that the output settings on our XBOX (our main DVD viewing gizmo) can be adjusted to "Stretch" which takes away the black bands. Meaning most of our older movies can be enjoyed on the complete 55" screen. If "Stretch" is not turned on at the XBOX, the old movies use only about 2/3 of the display. I'm glad I can use all the screen I have bought :)

Great features like turning off the status light when the TV is off make this really nice. I intend to buy an XBOX remote to consolidate remotes.

VESA mounts use the 400x400mm pattern.

Newegg delivery service from NJ delivered to my house in VA in 3 days BEFORE CHRISTMAS! I was amazed - shipping ETA was the Monday after Christmas so they exceeded those expectations.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat display!

Pros: Incredibly clean and bright display quality at full 1080p, enormous size, swivel stand and real buttons that don't turn the device on with the slightest accidental activity. The glossy shell makes for easy dust removal.

Cons: Glossy design makes the entire shell of the television a finger print magnet. Watch where you touch to connect cables as well as your smaller children.

Other Thoughts: Definitely a good buy. I've used a number of manufacturers of LCD televisions in the past and LG almost always wins in overall quality and functionality.
