I just ordered myself one of these. The info and media for the LB5900 series is pretty slim, I'm guessing because they were only first available on June 8th 2014.

My first question was if there was enough room in front of the TV for a sound bar or in my case an HT-XT1 sound base since the stand is too wide to sit on the base. After some simple math and algebra, using the dimensions listed in the specs I calculated that there is approximately 1.89 inches from the bottom of the stand to bottom of the Bezel, with a bezel of about .975 inches. Which makes it 2.8655 inches of space before anything starts blocking the picture (solvable by a wall mount). So sound bars larger than that might get in the way of the tv.

I also cant find any info on whether or not any of the HDMI inputs support ARC. A lack of info would suggest they don't, but will see as soon as I get the TV

As soon as I get the TV in and hooked up i'm going to take a few pictures and add them to this post along with any other possibly helpful info.

***** UPDATE******
Well got the TV in... but unfortunatly it arrived with a shattered screen. Amazon is shipping me a replacement. In the mean time I did take a few pictures before I got bummed out.

Ok got my tv. And I love it. The picture is excellent quality. Sounds good. I've added some more pictures. Definitely love it. Idont have my htxt1 at the moment but I don think there will be a problem placing it in front.

This is my initial review, I will post a follow up review in a few months.
Out of the box, this TV is amazing. I still can't believe I was able to get a 60 in. this nice for under $1000.00!!
Let me start by saying I'm an HDTV snob. I only go for quality, all of my previous TV's were high end Samsungs. Before I even plugged it in, I was in love. This TV is GORGEOUS! Once it was all set up, I liked it even more. The picture is excellent, and almost every aspect of the picture is adjustable, so you can really fine tune it to exactly your preference. The colors, brightness, contrast, all top notch. Even the "Trumotion" is adjustable, which is nice because I'm still on the fence as to whether or not I like it.

There are a couple of small problems that I have with this TV tho, but the problems are not significant enough to stop me from giving it a 5 star review.
First problem, there's only 2 HDMI ports. This is a bit annoying, but can be worked around. The next problem is the legs. The legs are very, very far apart, approx 50 inches between them on the 60 in model, so this means that it will not fit on all TV stands. I had to go out and buy a bigger stand, one that is at least 50 inches wide on top. I see that many people on here are complaining about it not being a smart TV. it clearly states that it is NOT, so you should not buy this TV if that's what you're looking for. However, if that's not a deal breaker for you, this will probably be the best TV you've ever owned!

@ January 2015, I got this TV from D@LL due to on-hand gift cards reason.

As a low budget TV at mid $400 range, I have no complains regarding its performance nor it only has 2 HDMI inputs.

The only complain I have is about the location of one of its rear HDMI input (HDMI#1) is RIGHT UNDER THE BACKING PLATE OF ANY "X-TYPE BACKING PLATE" WALL MOUNT.

Again, If looking at this TV's back side, this funny HDMI input locates at 4.5 inch, south-east direction of the rear center point.

If mounting to the wall, I recommend to use the "2x Horizontal Rail" type of wall mount if anyone intend to use this HDMI input.

Another issue is about its power cable. The "Mickey Mouse shape" connector is very short (170cm) and rare. AFAIK finding a longer cable is not possible at any local store.

Both sloppy/stupid flaws are telling the manufacturer was careless during planning.

Well... anyway, it is a low budget TV!

Amazing TV. the picture is stunning, very bright and clear. As others have stated, this is not a Smart TV, but if you are hooking to an Apple TV, Amazon Fire or a gaming system the Smart TV feature is not needed. If your looking for a dedicated gaming TV as I was, this is it.

Considerable research resulted in my purchase in early September 2014 of an LG Electronics 60LB5900 TV. As all my television viewing is via media streaming, I had no use for so-called "smart" features, so the set-up was basically a no fuss of the out-of-the-box experience. Factory settings on the picture and audio are okay; but ample opportunity exists, though admittedly subjective, to tweak an excellent picture with acceptable sound. Based upon some 100 hours of use over about a month, I consider this television the best I have ever seen or viewed in seven decades of living.

I love my new TV. The TV arrived ahead of time, and it was packaged in a manner that minimized the chances for damage.

As others have said, this is not a smart TV. I did not want a smart TV. I have my Apple TV.

This is a great looking TV. Great picture encased in a simple, elegant frame. It was easy to set up, and though I like the way they designed the stand, I am thinking I might mount it. It is thin, light and will look great on the wall. I'm happy!
