First of all you can get the tv at best buy during sales for 2199 and then get them to match a coupon for sears for 10% off.
Secondly, there are no voice issues if you use the right kind of hdmi cable...get the brand new updated version and you won't have
any problems. Third, do yourself a favor and buy the new ps3 to play your movies on..even if you don't need a game system.
It has wireless networking, it's down to 299 and it will display all your photos and music on your tv, it's like having a 120
gig hard drive hooked up to your tv with blueray capability. I have been looking for a year for the right tv and i knew this
was it. The picture is fully backlit, instead of edgelit like the Samsung, that makes a big difference in the details. The
other thing is that the picture is absolutely stunning. The LED technology will save you money over plasmas and last longer...
approximately 7-15 years longer. It doesn't run as hot as plasmas, the electricity cost you a lot less, there's no fear of burn in,
the picture is unbelievable and there's several places to use it as a computer monitor. Pertaining to other people's comments
about the power light, it actually blends into the background when you're watching tv or a movie, it's not bothersome at all, but
in the case that it does bother you really bad, hey, just get a sharpie, lol. Some of you reading this are wondering what tv to
buy. If you do your research, consumer reports, cnet and all those, they will tell you this is one of the best in the 55" category.
The contrast ratio is 2,000,000 to 1, the automotion ms response time is 4 or less because of the 240 hz, not as fast as a plasma but how many people were complaining when there lcd's were just 120 hz...no one was. Anyway, good luck with your decision but at the end
of the day if you buy this tv, you'll be happy.

I bought this TV from our local BestBuy. I had been looking at the Samsung edge-lit LED/LCD line. The LG TV rep happened to be at the Fort Worth store, and he was really helpful. I've had the TV now for three four days, and I couldn't be happier.

The TV is used in a well-lit living area, making the matte screen useful. I have looked at a LOT of TVs, and if you're worried about the matte screen diminishing picture quality, don't be. It kills reflections very effectively. The picture is gorgeous, regardless of source (LG BD390 Blu-ray player and a Dish Network 722 receiver in my case). Beautiful color, black blacks. Try the THX picture mode - it looks VERY realistic. My mom had a Panasonic plasma TV, and this is a better picture.

Worth buying just for the futuristic standby/on power light; can be disabled if you're not as fond of it as I am.

The sound/lip synch issue with HDMI feeds has gotten a lot of attention. Using the TV audio, I had an initial problem with the Dish receiver till I tweaked the receiver's settings. Same with BD390 player. Now all is well with either HDMI TV audio or external audio. I do think HD audio, especially with HDMI feeds, are problematic sometimes (too often). I understand that a solution is coming in the form of some sort of forced sync between HDMI audio and video in the HDMI standard. Hope so. With external audio, an audio delay box might be useful.

I am sitting here watching the Dish HD NBC Today show feed. It's stunning. I am a biologist, and I recently watched the Blu-ray version of Planet Earth. It nearly brought me to tears, it was so gorgeous.

Buy and enjoy!

Verified Purchase
First, I did a lot of research about the LCD and LED TV's, trying to find the best one for me. Without looking at price, it came down to 2 sets, the LG55LH90 and the Samsung UN55B8500. I chose the former because of the picture quality. Boy, am I glad I did! We're sitting here watching the Winter Olympics and it's like we're there! The Food Network even gets my stomach growling.
In addition, I want to cut down on my energy usage which helps the environment and saves me money. However, I want to do it all without sacrificing my lifestyle. LED's are supposed to use less energy than LCD's. On the LCD monitors you can feel how much heat it generates, whereas the LG puts off very little heat. With the LG55, the Dish Network, and the sound system all up and running, this whole unit is only drawing 224 watts of electricity...sweet! (I actually measured it with a "Kill-a-Watt meter)

Below are the additional items that I purchased along with their prices and the reasons I purchased them:
LGLH90-Purchased through Amazon - $1995.00 Almost bought at Best Buy, but price was higher, and even though they offered to match the price, they still would have charged sales tax.
Mediabridge Ultra Series HDMI Cable through Amazon - $9.99 Read about the Lip-sync issues and the problems people were having. There were comments about "making sure you get a high quality" cable. I also read where the "Monster Cable" was overhyped. Called Best Buy for their opinion and guess what, they said to be sure to buy the $100.00 Monster Cable...wonder why? So I based my decision on the cable's certification. It is certified at "Version 1.3 Category 2" which is the same as the "Monster Cable" at 1/10th the price. It performs perfectly, with no lip-sync problems.
