This review is from: LG Electronics 55LB5900 55-Inch 1080p 120Hz LED TV (Electronics)
I just received this TV a few days ago and the picture is great. It has 8 different picture options for different types of viewing (cinema, game, sports, vivid. I bought this tv because I wanted a simple tv good for gaming and this tv delivered. Also, it lacks SMART tv features which helps saves money and is honestly pointless in my case since I connect to the internet through my Xbox One. I recommend this TV for all gamers on a budget

Have you noticed any motion blur when gaming? LG doesn't advertise this as an IPS panel, but I read a review that said it has one. Can you tell me if you got an IPS panel or VA panel?

Since you just received this - can you tell me the distance between the 2 base pieces for the stand? I see the total length of the tv is approximately 49 inches. I would be placing this tv on a stand where the top shelf is 43" so I wanted to make sure that it would fit. Thanks.

the legs are actually just a few inches from the sides of the tv so it may not fit on a 43'' shelf

I didnt notice any blurring. It has pretty crystal clear motions. I don't know how to tell if the tv has an IPS panel but it would be safe to assume it does

Thanks for the response. It usually says on the box, but you can tell by either running your finger along the screen, if there's a long "trail" behind your finger, it's a VA panel, if there no trail it's an IPS panel. You can also tell by looking at the screen at an angle, if the colors fade or shift when looking at the screen at an angle, it's a VA panel, if they stay bright and sharp it's an IPS panel.

I have a thing about people touching my tv screen so I'm not gonna run my finger across it, but the colors and picture stay nice and sharp even at a wide angle. I was actually surprised just how sharp they are even standing right on the side of the tv. As far as motion blur, I consider myself a pretty hardcore gamer, and after hours of playing the new Tomb Raider on ps4 I've seen nothing but crystal clarity from the screen. In fact, my friend has a high end Samsung and the picture comes really close in clarity. If you're a gamer and you don't care about the smart tv stuff, get this tv, you won't regret it.

Totally understand not wanting to touch your screen. It sounds like it's an IPS panel. Thanks for the response.

Useful review, thanks! But I'd like to know if anyone out there has ordered a tv mount to go with this philips tv and if so, can you recommend a model. I don't really care for the low profile or distance to the wall, but I want this mount to be more sturdy. My friend bought a FlexiMounts tv mount and loved it. I'll probably buy the same, but I'm open to suggestions!

Seems like this sharp tv is really worth the price but I have my doubts about it being sturdy enough if I place it high up. I can't really afford to see this one break. Did you fix the TV to the wall? I would probably go for FlexiMounts to mount it. Check it out if you had a similar conern.
