I had the same Fry's 47LV5500. Ended up returning it for several reasons
- Cannot adjust Edge Enhancer in PC labeled input mode under isf Expert preset
- Cannot adjust Edge Enhancer in non-PC labeld input mode under non-isf Expert preset
- High input lag when using isf Expert (~60ms). (Very low input lag otherwise ~16-33ms)
- Does not support Chroma 4:4:4 subsampling under any mode
- No DTS decoding
As you can see, I'm very particular about having low input lag while using isf Expert preset, without any post-processing.
Since this set and other LV5500 has some issues with my requirements, it's a no go for me. For everyone else who just plan to use this to movies, and play games, it's a great set. Kudos to LG for including all these cool smart features on such a thin TV, with IPS panel no less.
I ended up going with LD450 and LK450, as they have zero enforced post-processing, working chroma 4:4:4 subsampling, and low input lag under any preset. I really did like all those cool feature smart features. Hopefully LG will come out with a firmware that might address my concerns, or wait for 2012 models.
