Pretty Good - Not perfect,
This review is from: LG Infinia 55LW5600 55-Inch Cinema 3D 1080p 120 Hz LED-LCD HDTV with Smart TV and Four Pairs of 3D Glasses (2011 Model) (Electronics)
I bought this for a basement theater after significant research and side-by-side evaluation in stores. I recently bought a 47" 240HZ LG TV for my living room and am very happy with the quality of the image, lack of a glare from my windows (which is a huge negative with the highly reflective Samsung screen) and the fact I don't see the tv struggling to give me the clear image when watching a sporting event. I hung the the 55" in place of my 47" to test it out before putting it in the basement and used it to watch the NCAA Finals. The picture is big, but there is a noticable difference between the ability of this TV to draw the picture and my 47". The 55" noticably messes up, or pixilates every now and then. It isn't a show stopper, or a reason to hate the TV, but it is noticeable and I can't help but think the 120Hz for the 55" television is the problem. I tried the 3d conversion and it does add some nice depth. I like it. I plan to try it with some real 3D content to see if it is impressive.
I am connected to the Internet and tried to use the browser to watch an episode of Castle from the ABC website. The site told me to update my version of Flash and I have no idea how to do this since I don't know the operating system. It would be nice if I could use it to watch online episodes without going through one of the pay services (Netflix).
I'm happy with the TV, but I think it would be wise to hold off for a 240Hz model if you can wait/afford it.

I have the same issue of picture quality, particularly the skin tone. I can never adjust it right. Also the light bleeding from the left side of the tv. The Energy saving mode is useless that it made the picture way too dark. I just returned the set. The only good thing is the passive 3D feature.

Useful review, thanks! But I'd like to know if anyone out there has ordered a tv mount to go with this samsung 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 samsung 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.
