By J. Bronson on June 15, 2012
Size: 55-Inch Verified Purchase
Pros:
* Incredible Picture very near the quality of the high end Samsung's. Whites, Blacks,Colors are all exceptional.
* Stunning, Amazing 3D - I can't even put into words how good this TV is at 3D, Other than its 100x better than I could of expected. Even when the source is 2D it does a decent job, of course this completely depends on the source. Now when the source is actually 3D, BluRay's or PS3 games, it's down right mind blowing how good and cool it is.
* Beautiful Stand, if you don't hang it on the wall the stand doesn't disappoint.
* Magic Remote, 1st impression was "This is not going to cut it." Pleased to say my 1st impression was wrong. It is super easy to use and very quick at navigating.
* Built in Apps - Netfix, Hulu this is becoming typical in most tv's,dvd/blu ray players,dvr's etc. Wont go into great detail, but its nice to have it directly in the TV and it works great , no complaints.

Cons: App store - At the moment is pretty pathetic, nothing there worth downloading. Hopefully this is something that LG improves over the next few months. I must add, the extremely popular apps are already on the TV such as Netfix,Hulu,Amazon Video,Facebook,Twitter,Pandora,Youtube,MLB.TV,Vudu,MoG,Google Maps,Picasa.

Overall I am going to rate this 4* but, really I'd rate it 4.5.
Loosing .5 stars for the app store.

Picture quality would be 4.75 stars.
3D would be 5 stars. (Actually 6!)

Extremely happy with my purchase would not trade it for any other TV in it's price range.

I ordered this TV (55LM8600) after years of purchasing and trusting the LG brand, as replacement for an older 47-in non-3D LG LCD TV. While the delivery and appearance are top notch, this new TV either freezes or restarts every 10-15 minutes. When I first experienced the issue I contacted LG and they tried to troubleshoot over the phone, verified it was not a network/power/signal issue and a technician was dispatched for confirmation. The technician verified the issue, but noted that he "thought" it might be the main board, and that part was on back-order. The technician then recommended that I contact Amazon to replace. Amazon replaced it without issue. However, the replacement has the exact same fault. Upon contacting LG, I am told to once again contact Amazon as they believe I need another replacement. Upon contacting Amazon, I am told that a replacement would take a month or two as they are out of stock. I then contacted LG a final time and asked for a supervisor. I once again explained my issues and was told that a technician would need to be sent to diagnose the issue and order parts, parts that may be on backorder. LG would not offer a replacement, only a repair, but the repair might not work and it would take a few months to find that out (which would be outside of my Amazon return window). I am not sure what happened to customer service at these electronics manufacturers that after two malfunctioning TVs that it is apparently too much to ask to have them send out a technician with a replacement TV. I cannot be upset at Amazon, they helped where they could, and now unfortunately are out of stock of replacements. It appears that I will not to get to try a third time and will now think twice before buying LG products again.

For my needs, this was an excellent buy. I imagine I would have been equally happy with the 55LM7600, but it was not in stock at my local MicroCenter where these are selling at insanely good prices. There are of course a few things to consider before you decide to buy this TV:

Will the TV be situated in a basement, Or is most of your TV viewing done in dim lighting, Or do you care more about picture quality than brightness? If yes, get a plasma. If not, move on to the next question.

Will you rarely be watching 3D content? If yes, get a Samsung 2D or even 3D TV. If not, move on to the next question.

Do you live in a home with lots of storage space and outlets to keep 3D glasses charged (i.e. not a cramped NY apartment), and do you expect not to have more than 6-8 people watching 3D movies at the same time? If yes, get a Samsung 3D TV. If not, read on.

If you came this far after the questions, as I did, this is the right TV for you. You might also be happy with the 55LM7600.

What you should be prepared for:

1. Ghosting and Flash-lighting. These defects are manifest in all edge-lit LED TVs. My previous TV is a Vizio XVT3D474SV, which was a back-lit TV. It had no flashlighting, but still had noticeable ghosting, though not as bad as this LG unit. These defects are most noticeable when watching a dark movie (think dark knight), or a movie with cinema black bars on the top and bottom. For most content, when sitting a brightly lit room, the defects are not noticeable at all. The same issue affects top of the line Samsung TVs as well.

2. Poor black levels. The black levels on this TV are nowhere near the black levels on my previous Vizio TV. If you calibrate the TV for deeper black levels, brightness suffers as well.

I briefly owned an LG 47LM8600 that, out of the box, had a dead Wi-Fi. Web research showed that a number of folks had this same problem and a change of the main board was needed to fix the problem. So ... poor engineering of the product. I called the Canadian LG support line twice and both times (after having to go through their diagnostic procedure) was told that in-house service had been scheduled and that I'd receive a call to set up a time. I never received a call. I then entered an on-line complaint about the problem with the support line and the flippant e-mail response I received said to "call their support line". The e-mail provide a link to give feedback on the support; which I did quite harshly; again no response from LG. Needless to say I returned the TV and wrote a snail-mail to the Sales Manager for Canada relating this problem. So ... don't expect LG to stand behind whatever warranty they offer on their products!
