Any LG 55LB5900 Owners?

Well as the title says, does anyone own this TV? I can't find reviews for it anywhere. Not even poor quality videos on youtube. I know this came out in Q2 of 2014, but I can't find anyone who has it. There is only 22 reviews of it on Amazon and a small percentage of them even bought the set from Amazon. I'm looking at getting it but I want to know PQ, and everything else. I also find it odd that the more expensive LG models of this year have reviews except for this one.

I picked this up over the weekend and can give my first impressions. I got it to supplement my front projector set up which is in a family room and I wanted something that i could view without having to turn the lights down.

Initial impressions are... OK. The screen is very glossy so reflections are pretty bad. The contrast levels are very low and the blacks are grey. Brightness is good and the colors pop without being over saturated. I am sure this will improve when I calibrate it. The biggest downside I see so far to the set is the back light uniformity. There is a noticeable dimming to the corners and unevenness in the center. This is much less noticeable during actual images, but on solid color backgrounds its definitely visible.

Like I said i picked this up for a secondary display so for me its faults are worth it for the price. Also, i dont know if aesthics matter to you, but this set looks fantastic. The bezel is tiny (about 3/4 inch) for a display this size and looks almost entirely screen when viewing it.

Hope this helps.

ryan, what are your impressions after owning this set for a few days now? One concern I have in picking an LED set is the viewing angle since I'll have a couple of seats off to the side a bit. Do you happen to know if this set has an IPS display?

Thanks in advance for your responses! If you had to do it over, would you buy this set again?

Anyone have ab opinion yet? Going between this online for 679 no tax no shipping, or a Sharp from Sams Club for 599 plus tax.
