3D Technology Checklist
This product is 3D-related. To help you get a great 3D experience, use our checklist below to ensure that you have everything you need. If you have any questions or want to learn more about 3D, we invite you to visit 3D 101--our center for everything 3D. To get started with 3D, please ensure that you have:
A DisplayThe first--and most important--item you'll need is a 3D-ready display--whether it be a 3D HDTV, 3D projector, or 3D computer monitor. These displays usually have a higher processing power than older models as they need to display one image for each eye to create a 3D effect.
A SourceWhile your display is ready for 3D playback, you still need a device to read 3D content (i.e., a movie or a show). This source can be a cable box with a subscription to a 3D channel, a 3D Blu-ray Disc player, or a PlayStation 3.
ContentIn order to watch 3D, you will need to get some 3D content. This 3D content will come from the source mentioned above in the form of a 3D program, movie, or game. Please ensure that your 3D movies are in the Blu-ray 3D format, as this new format will provide the best 3D experience.
3D GlassesAll 3D HDTVs on the market require Active Shutter glasses to create the 3D effect. You will need to buy one pair of glasses for each viewer. Also make sure that the Active Shutter glasses you buy are compatible with your display--for example, buy the glasses from the same brand as your 3D HDTV.
HDMI CableTo connect your source (such as a 3D Blu-ray Disc player) to your display, you'll need a hgh-speed HDMI cable. Cables with this designation--with bandwidth speeds up to 10.2 Gbps (gigabits per second)--will be able to carry the 3D signal without any loss of quality.
With LG's NetCast, you get access to TV shows, movies and more, streamed directly from the Internet to your television screen. And the LX6500 series also provides compatibility with Wireless 1080p Connectivity with LG's wireless media kit. (Note: wireless media kit is required and sold separately LG AN-WL100W.)
Other features include a jaw-dropping 8,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio for more stunning colors and deeper blacks, two USB ports for connecting external drives for playing back MP3 audio, JPEG photo and DivX HD video files, stereo speakers with 20 watts of power and Dolby Digital decoding, and four HDMI inputs.
NetCast Entertainment AccessNetCast Entertainment Access brings the best Internet services direct to your TV--no computer required. Instantly access movies and TV shows, news and weather and the world's largest library of HD movies in 1080p. (Note: Internet connection & subscriptions required and sold separately.)

|With standard-definition TVs, the rule used to be that viewers would feel comfortable watching a set from a distance of 3 to 6 times the screen size in inches. With HDTV, the resolution is so much better that you can sit closer to a larger TV without noticing the pixels. So with HDTVs, the rule tends to be you can sit anywhere from 1.5 to 3 times the screen size (in inches) for the best experience. |
If you know the size of the room you have already, where you want to sit, and where your new HDTV should go once you get it, you can figure out the size HDTV you should get.

I decided and jumped in on the promotional deal that included the LG 55LX6500 TV, four free LG 3D glasses and Amazon.com Store Card financing. I also bought a three year service plan since the cost was less than 10% of the TV price, and we (TV and I) are "gonna be tight" for years to come... needed to get some "health insurance" for my new friend.
I have purchased a lot of things online but making a purchase this large online made me a bit uneasy, since it wouldn't be as simple as driving back to the store to return it. Amazon made me confident with their 30 Day free return policy. Confident online purchase - CHECK!
So I scheduled the delivery at the time of purchase waited for my "TV Santa" to show up. It was a three hour window for delivery on delivery day, and the delivery company called me to tell me they would arrive in 30-45 minutes. The delivery guy came and dropped it off, but I would not let him leave until I plugged it in and powered it up. I had heard stories of TVs getting damaged during delivery and didn't want a broken TV in my house until they came back to pick it up at a later date. The TV powered up and looked good with no damage. Successful delivery - CHECK!
I already had a mounting bracket on the wall from my previous TV. I switched the TVs and connected it to my Onkyo home theater receiver. The remote is not impressive by any means; it's just an average remote but does its job. The TV is very thin and looks great, I can't complain with how stylish it looks on the wall. I turned everything on and began to live the moment. TV Set-up - CHECK!
Now I was watching television on a DLP projection TV before, and I saw a drastic difference between this new LED TV and the older DLP TV. I tested the TV with HD channels, Blu-ray movies, and XBOX 360 games. The 240Hz refresh rate was noticeable; gives you sort of a "soap opera effect" and makes the picture look more "real" in a sense. I guess this is typical with LED TVs with higher refresh rates. I was blown away by how crisp and clear everything showed. The colors looked great and the picture was bright, so I was happy. As I had read in other reviews, the TV was as good as I expected. Good job with this one LG!
I was excited to test drive the 3D capability of the TV, understanding that I was not going to get an "IMAX 3D experience". You have to go into this understanding that it's still newer technology and it is not going to be like at the IMAX Theater. At first it was not really straight forward to me how to get everything (TV, 3D glasses, and 3D content) activated to work together. This TV does give you the ability to watch 3D in the older 3D formats (polarized, etc.) or the newer "active shutter" 3D format. I did forget that to use 3D, you need HDMI v1.4 cables connected from the content player to TV. The TV and content player recognize when you don't have the right cables because it will give you messages that your TV or player/receiver are not 3D capable. I then realized my home theater receiver had HDMI v1.3 functionality, so I had to connect my HMDI v1.4 cables directly to the TV from my DirecTV HD receiver, 3D Blu-ray player and XBOX 360. I watched Winter X games on ESPN 3D from my DirecTV receiver and Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D from my Blu-ray player, and thought it was cool but not outstanding. I did see "ghosting" images and found that the distance you sit from the TV makes a difference. The 3D effect also was better when you are closer than further away; the TV message says to sit 2m (6.6ft) away. As I said it was pretty cool but not breathtaking, I did like the 3D effect overall. It's good that I did not buy the TV just because it had 3D capability, but hopefully it gets better over time.
The sound from the TV was not impressive, it's typical for a TV but I am accustom to a 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound system. If you have or are getting a surround sound system then it shouldn't be a concern. That being said, the sound coming out from the TV was good and clear for what you can expect from TV stereo speakers.
I am very happy and satisfied with my purchase. I am sure I will enjoy this TV for years to come... or until they have newer technology out like "TV wallpaper". I am always amazed how we as humans continue to make things (technology, medicine, etc.) better but sometimes we just stay the same. Hope this review helps someone make a good TV purchase decision!
I can say that the picture quality is better than the other 2 hdtv's I own (a jvc rear projection and a samsung lcd)
The quality when watching a bluray or playing a game on the xbox 360 is absolutly amazing. I have Fios for tv and on most of the HD channels the picture is great and on SD channels the picture is still quite good although there is some blur sometimes.
This TV is very thin!! It was easy to mount to my wall. It has plenty of inputs on the back (just make sure you attach before mounting if putting on a wall) The remote is easy enough to use.
I do like the internet features such as the yahoo widgets and such.
I do not use the speakers in this tv (I have a HT receiver hooked up) so I cant really comment on how they sound.
The glasses for the tv are comfy enough...
The 3d performance is good.
Overall I think this is a great tv
