Back : The back of the LG 55LX6500 is home to all the ports.

Back Tour Image

Sides : The 55LX6500 LG is much thinner, making it attractive to a TV, as a whole. From left to right you will see some of the ports. They have been together far enough back from the brink of leaving son was back there, so they are not considered visible to the viewer, depending on the thickness of the wire.

Sides Tour Image
Stand: The base is wide and sturdy and feels very heavy - a good thing, given the weight and size of the TV.

Control : Controls that run along the bottom so harmless in the context that can not be mixed in a position to see them. Good thing, because take fingerprints like you've never seen.

Remote Control : The remote is long and slender, usually comfortable and easy to use. Most of the buttons are large and soft, but we prefer the easiest, fastest in the key of the center, those who control the menu.

Internet Features : LG 55LX6500 is not as fully in its options for streaming content such as Sony, but it provides a good thing. More importantly, local governments have the latest Netflix and YouTube. For most of the content better (or worse, depending on your point of view on YouTube). Moreover, Vudu will get pay-per-view and Picasa photo sharing. Yahoo offers a small range of widgets for weather, news, and so on, but we found the gap interface and embarrassing and work so much faster and more elegant phone or computer.

3D Features : We believe that LG really dropped the ball with the 3D effect is 55LX6500. No generation of 3D high-definition television is very good, but the LG is bad to the point of needing an updated firmware. For starters, there is no way to calibrate the TV when its in 3D. In fact, you can not really do anything without the 3D mode first. This is particularly troublesome because you do not have access to a calibration mode, the writing of the movement seems to be broader. We noticed some problems with synchronization between the left and right channels in 3D and could be caused by treatment of the movement.

Between crosstalk and other issues, the 3D effect is permanent and inconsistent, and some scenes, even painful to the eyes. In addition, we found the TV seems to flash green dot crawl or acquire an effect if the 3D mode is enabled. In the worst case, the strobe image to image, static and flat green.We the problem less if the TV is connected to an LG Blu-ray, but it appeared from time to time. If you buy this TV, definitely get the LG Blu-ray to reduce this problem.

3D Glasses : We had no real problem with the 3D glasses from LG. They felt a little expensive, yes, but they were mild and not unpleasant, as some glasses from other manufacturers. No complaints here.

>> I love it! , December 6, 2010

You start the little things that your favorite did not know it was remarkable! The first time I watched Everybody Loves Raymond (HD) on this TV, I was speechless! I noticed the bright colors of clothes, I noticed the pattern of the wallpaper and tile in the house of Ray. You need a big screen TV with LED, for this experiment. I'm glad I did not wait any longer for the update. The display is very strong, as expected, and features / functionality that I was impressed. The 3D work fine too. I made the right decision after all!

Before deciding on LG 55LX6500, I compared a dozen models to Samsung, Sharp, Sony and LG, even atleast. I wanted a label has not believing Vizio 55LX6500 etc. gave me the best bang for the buck, and I was happy with the reviews here on Amazon and CNET. So I decided to take the plunge. Since there are only 6 comments on this site, I decided to post these comments because I know how valuable they were for me atleast.

Link - The installation was pretty standard. I saw that someone said they are not a guide book somewhere. I got the book and CD. Not that you need. I easily put TV on a mountain, and hung my Comcast hi-def box and Sony home theater system via HDMI. Comcast box cost me $8 a month more, but it gives me access to their HD channels and content HD/3D on request. A surprising amount.

Standard VS HD Content - I have seen some reviews on how many people are trying to watch Standard def content and expecting extraordinary results. So let me contribute my 2 cents here. I used to have 27" CRT TV before this. The standard def looks good there. When viewing the same in 55lx6500, the picture seems little fuzzy. Don't get me wrong - I would anyday take this fuzzy picture over the 27" display. But the thing is we have to use words like fuzzy or blurred, but overall the picture still looks nice. But don't expect your TV to magically produce sharp display if it doesn't get the data to display it. You need hi-def content to see hi-def quality. IMHO the best test for a TV is to watch blu-ray movie on it. It cuts out the cable/dish issues and lets you see what the TV is capable of doing. For me personally, I have HD channels and I love them. The little blur/fuzz here and there is not TV's fault. I have watched a 2 hour blu-ray movie on my TV, and I had the best experience. (No need to mention that you need HDMI cables to carry the hi-def data)

USB Port - Very useful. It lets me play songs/movies/photos from my flash drive. It should pickup all portable flash drives (I used WD portable 160GB) - I haven't tried powered USB drives.

I like the 3D on TV. I have Comcast and have a small collection of 3D documentaries, music and games. I just loved these programs. The experience is similar to what I was in Best Buy stores. I found that dimming the lights in my living room enhances the experience - makes it even more exciting because there are no distractions. I have a Sony bluray 3d home theater system, but not play the bluray movie in 3D. I think it's even better some of the contents of Comcast is a little fuzzy. Comcast should have on-demand content delivered in a small delay at times. I'll update this review after I try bluray 3D. I play a bluray movie (Expendables) on the TV, and I enjoyed the experience. The audio system in my home theater and the quality of my 55lx6500 was fantastic!
