Take it from a gamer...


Good TV for the price - you're paying for the hardware specs and not the erroneous features.

Comes with all of the features you'd expect in a top of the line TV but without the bells and whistles. 120hz refresh rate is awesome for watching movies but you won't notice it while gaming unless you have a video card that can render that many...

this product has great features.


My TV is exactly what I wanted, the picture is crystal clear, set up was the easiest thing I have done and I love the 55 inch screen. I really appreciate the e-mails from LG giving tips for best viewing.
