LG 55LHX 55 inch LCD HDTV

100% Positive Reviews
Rated #7 in LCD HDTV


Pros: Blacks Are Black! Matte Screen. Improves with age! 3360 LEDS for Fully Backlit!

Cons: Off Angle Blooming, Service Menu White Balances no where near Spec, THX possibly has AutoColour.

Orginally manufactured From the Fall of 2009 to the Spring of 2010. Was to be sold at a Suggested List Price of $6000.
Fall Versions appeared to have been a better Product than the later Spring Versions. (DSE Complaints)
Difficulties at that time, of selling an LG Product in that Price Range. Subsequently most owners ended purchasing at substantial discounts, but from recent listings, seems to be holding it's own in the upper $1000, to lower $2000 range.
I Own 2 due to wife liking mine and wanted her own!
Problems originally arose due to Meters and Calibrating Equipment not being able to do a good job of setting up the set.
Subsequent Updates in the Calibrating Softwares started to bring this set into it's full capability. Between experimenting, and talking with others, I've now managed to make this one heck of a good looking set!
First thing to go was the Wireless Media Box. I found that it seemed to have a negative impact on the overall PQ.
Currently, the wife's 55LHX gets its signal, and calibration from an iScan Duo. Mine from the Lumagen Radiance XE-3D.
Recent calibrations using a Spectracal C6 profiled off the i1Pro , and Calman 5.1.1 has made this an amazing looking set! Since neither the wife nor myself sit anywhere outside the 30 degree range, the blooming is not a problem.
Due to the Black Panel and Frame, different sized sceens are not a problem in that the Panel Blends in with Bezel and are Moot when watching. All you see is just the Picture. Great set, that taught me a lot about calibration. Hope it lasts forever, but then with OLED starting to rear it's head, there may only be a few years left before they get recycled down our internal food chain.

LG?s Top of the line LCD HDTV series delivers superior picture quality, including a 5,000,000:1 contrast ratio, in an ultra-slim design (less than 1? at its thinnest point). Unlike LCD LED HDTVs that use ?edge? lighting technology, LG?s LHX uses a full array of LED backlights with local dimming technology for precise picture control resulting in deeper blacks and a wide color gamut. And, because it?s wireless, the LHX allows for greater room design flexibility.

FeatureLED Mega Contrast 2,000,000 - 1 - LG LED technology utilizes LED lamps that individually control the level of brightness For amazing clarity and color detail, even during fast- action sports and movie scenes, as well as for reduced power consumption. Wireless 1080p Connectivity - Freedom from all those ugly wires! LG's convenient Wireless Design lets you transmit an uncompressed 1080p signal up to 30 feet. Intelligent Sensor - Automatically optimizes the picture to the lighting conditions in the room for a personalized and enjoyable viewing experience.
