I'm gonna break this review up into 2 parts. 1st part is about input lag, second is about the 3D and the TV itself.

Part I.
First off, I have had this TV for 2 days. Right after I ordered it, I started reading about input lag and other things. I'll be honest, It got me worried. I'm a regular gamer, and that's really what I got the TV for. So when it first arrived, I set it up and popped in Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3.. Without changing any settings. I noticed that there was some input lag, and it was a tad annoying..BUT it was PLAYABLE in my opinion.

Then I turned off Tru Motion by changing the picture setting to "Game". I really didn't notice much of a difference. It improved by, 20% maybe? This was when I was starting to get worried.. I did a little research and found a sneaky trick/fix. So far, it's worked great. (Knock on wood, I'm truly loving my TV to the fullest now!) Below are step by step instructions.

1. On your remote, press the input button.
2. Then push the blue button on the bottom right hand corner of the remote. It says 3D settings but that's irrelevant right now.
3. This will open a window to change the name of the input.
4. Choose the PC name.

When you change the name of the input to PC, it turns off almost all of the image processing that comes with the HDMI input. So far, It has worked GREAT!

Part II.
Setup was relatively painless. I haven't setup the 3D Bluray player yet, I'll update when I do. My first 3D experience was with Halo CE Anniversary. I must say... INCREDIBLE! I wasn't ready for things to really come out of the screen. I guess my expectations were a little low. But hey! It turned out to be a good thing!

The 2D to 3D is pretty sweet.

Ok we have had this tv for about 3 weeks and love it. It's 55" of 3d greatness. Now you may see 3d tvs from Sony or Panasonic that once you put those heavier glasses on, you might see some flickering. Those tvs are.called active 3d and this LG uses passive 3d. Basically the screen is coated and the glasses do the rest.

Now passive 3d is the same 3d you may see at the movies, so the glasses from the movies will work on this tv. Keep in mind with the active shutter glasses coat $50 -$100 +, you get 4 free included and you go to the movies and bring those home and thats more for everyone. If you wear glasses, these will fit over your glasses or read my review of the clip ons.

This set comes with a 3d blu ray player which rocks. Neither the tv or 3d blu ray is networked to get on the internet, except the blu ray for bd live and updates. This is fine and helps keeps the cost down.

Now you can watch regular tv, dvds and blu rays in 3d with the help of on the fly 2d to 3d conversion which rocks not only for regular viewing, but for games as well. Playing Call of Duty on the 360 or Uncharted on the,ps3 is awesome once you hit the 3d button. Last night I tried God of War Origins collections that is a 3d enabled game and all I can say is wow.

Also 3d blu ray movies are amazing. If you get this set or any 3d tv, I would recommend Imax Under the Sea. Keep in mind the ps3 also does 3d.

I purchased this TV about 3 weeks ago for a really awesome deal. It had all of the features I was looking for. It is extremely easy to use and change the settings. Which I high recommend you do. The trumotion feature to me makes everything look a bit sped up which some refer to as soap opera effect. It can easily be turned of via the menus.
The picture is crystal clear the sound is whats to be expected from a flat panel set. Watchable but nothing amazing.
Now I had ZERO intention to buy a 3D set. Mostly because I wasn't that interested in most things in 3D. This one uses passive 3d, meaning you do not need expensive glasses to use it. The ones from the theatre will work just fine.My set did come with 4 pairs anyway. and you an get them on amazon for very inexpensive anyway. The actual 3d effects are astounding, and the tv will convert any 2d into 3d, this however leave some to be desired if you are used to things shot in 3D. But still a nice feature. Overall the only feature I could say would be nice for some is a the apps some smart tv's have. I could care less since I have access to nearly all of those between my PS3 or XBOX360.

I picked this up on Black Friday, so I've only had it a couple days. I did tons of research on this and went back and forth for months whether to get another plasma (I previously had a 42" Panasonic plasma 720p from 2005) or to go with an LED. The apartment I now live in has a fairly bright living room with a door and a window to the right of the couch, so the glare was becoming a problem with the glass screen on the plasma. However, I've always heard and read that plasmas have the best pictures. Look at CNET's list of best HDTVs. It's dominated by plasmas. Even the top rated LEDs contain the words "with black levels approaching that of plasmas."

Well I decided to take a chance on this LED and just return it if it didn't live up to my expectations and boy am I glad I did. My glare problem may well as be 100% gone. I still get a little when the living room lamp is on, but it is NOTHING compared to the glare I got on the plasma. Actually, with the plasma, it's better called a reflection, because it was like looking at a mirror. I'm still messing around with the picture settings, but I've got it set almost where I want it. Still can't decide if I like the "soap opera" effect offered by the TruMotion (you can turn it on and off). You definitely want it on during sports.

A word about gaming: This TV is great for it! These other people on here complaining about it clearly didn't read some of the other reviews. You can change your input type to GAME or PC to eliminate the input lag. When I first turned on Modern Warfare 3 it was unplayable. I was terrified that I'd have to return it and get another plasma. But after I read the other guy's review on here and changed my input setting, all is solved! Here's what to do:
