LG Electronics 55LE8500 55-Inch LCD TV


(Editor's note: This review of the LG LE8500 series is based on our hands-on testing and evaluation of the 47-inch 47LE8500. According to the manufacturer, the image quality and features should be equivalent for each TV in this model line.)

Full-array LED backlight ; 240Hz refresh rate ; Handsome set with good image quality and audio

Pricey for its screen-size class ; Very little printed documentation

The LG Infinia LE8500 Series looks good and delivers a slew of customization options, plus great Internet content--but image quality isn't great, and this HDTV is expensive.

LG 55LE8500 LED LCD HDTV First Impressions Review - Intro


The LG 55LE8500 is a 55-inch LED edge-lit LCD television. Positioned as the second-highest teir series, the LE85000s are likely to be strong performers, but they lack the 3D bells and whistles of the LE9500 series. Are we still supposed to get excited...

The 55LG8500 is a solid TV, at least based on the time we spent with it and its specs sheets. The series doesn't have a direct ancestor, but we reviewed the similar 47LH90 in 2009, and found it to be satisfactory, if a little pricey. The increased...

Review: LG Electronics 55LE8500 55-Inch LCD TV


The LG Infinia LE8500 Series looks good and delivers a slew of customization options, plus great Internet content--but image quality isn't great, and this HDTV is expensive.

With its skinny profile and strong lineup of features, the LG Infinia LE8500 series TVs certainly qualify as chic, connected HDTVs. Slightly more than an inch thick, these full-array backlit LED TV pack a good collection of Internet services (including...

LG 55LE8500


Some nice features and decent performance, but priced way out of its league

Above average color; Decent ports

A whopping $3299 price tag; Terrible black levels

The LG 55LE8500 is not a bad TV by any stretch. It didn’t get the best results on our picture quality tests—especially its black level, which was significantly brighter than it should have been—but it wasn’t a bad TV. The main problem the 55LE8500 has...

LG customer service nightmare


This was their top of the line product, just short of the 3D iteration. The warranty period is one year. While I have enjoyed many LG products over the years, this recent trouble suggests I begin to look elsewhere. LG support has been verbally...

Outstanding specs. Excellent quality and performance while it functioned ; Newegg offered a very competitve price combined with a sale ; Shipping carrier did an excellent job. Box arrived in flawless condition

TV failed (the panel itself) within 4 months ; LG Support is ultimately atrocious. They deliberately assign unrelated repairs seemingly in an attempt to stall taking the proper action. They contract out local repairmen, who have actually been very...

What's not to like (well, maybe a couple of things


This is a high-end TV and the picture/performance lived up to my expectation – very nice, no issues there. The good news is it makes high-quality images very vibrant and REAL looking, very stunning. The bad news is it makes low quality signals really...
