LG 55LK520 Review – 55-inch LCD HDTV


Along with the advanced plasma and LED TV series, LG also displayed the LK520 LCD TV series with three models. This model was announced by the manufacturer as a part of the series sporting a 55-inch screen. The model does not include the advanced and...

When most of the advanced models are being launched with built in Wi-Fi and efficient wireless internet connectivity options, the model does not even include the traditional wired option to access internet. The lack of this feature further reduces the...

LG 55LK520


The LG 55LK520 provides crystal-clear picture, a great design and an overall sense of style. It has the high contrast and brightness you need for the best cinematic experience in your home. It has parental locks and Wi-Fi internet access with video...

Consuming only 90 watts, this LCD TV is easy on the power bill, easily exceeding Energy Star requirements

There are only three HDMI ports, where most competitors offer at least four

This LCD TV offers excellent picture quality without breaking the bank.

This is my first time with a LG 55" LCD TV (or even a big screen TV at that). I wanted to build my own home theater center and succeeded with this TV! I have this big boy hooked up to SOOO MANY THINGS! For starters, I have the HD ... Expand full review

Great features and not overdoing it with apps

Sound could be better but no big deal

what the? I don't even...


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...

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...

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

Great Qualty TV


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...

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...

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...

Great display!


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.

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

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

Great T.V.


I bought this 55" LCD on line and had to wait a little for it to be delivered but it was well worth it. The picture and sound quality are excellent but you do need to play with the settings a little to get it just right. Start by using the wizard but...

Good HD TV


I recently purchased this TV on sale and it has been phenomenal! This TV provides, in my opinion, the best bang-for-the-buck in the 55" LCD TV segment. Although the sound quality isn't that great, the crisp & clear picture quality more than makes up...

Great Picture & Sound for great sale price!


I purchased the 55LK520 yesterday and we watched Water For Elephants and Visions of Ireland, both on Blu-ray.
