Size: 55-Inch
After looking at many, many televisions in the 55" and 60" LED LCD Class, we finally settled on the 2013 55LA8600 from LG.

Through reviews from Cnet and Amazon, we had a fairly short list. On this: Samsung 2012 ES8000, Samsung 2013 F8000, LG 2012 LM8600, LG 2013 LA8600, and the Sony 2012 HX850. LCD was a requirement, rather than plasma, as this television sits in a room with a high amount of light. The 4K televisions looked great in-store, but the price is too high for us to justify at this time. If you've got the budget, I'd certainly recommend looking at them as well. 240hz refresh was also required as we watch a great deal of F1, Indy, and Nascar racing and wanted to ensure that there was limited blur.

Home Theater Setup:
We have this set mounted on a cabinet (with future intent to mount on the wall), hooked to a 2012 Yamaha Aventage 720 receiver. Speakers are Polk Floor RTi-A5 and an older Csi A6 center channel with Polk powered sub. We are on Comcast Cable and Internet. I have HDMI run through the receiver and hard-wired ethernet running directly from the router. The set is also on a CyberPower battery backup. I also have the Tivo, Roku, and Apple Tv set up through the receiver. TV is on a cabinet just above eye level, and primary viewing area is about 11' back.

Picture Quality: Samsung F8000 vs LG8600
In-store, we compared this television side-by-side with the Samsung F8000. Both sets were beautiful. When placed at the factory default "standard" video setting, the Samsung was visibly brighter than the LG. However, the LG seemed to be "warmer" and had a better picture / color quality. This was especially evident to us when looking at grass in a golf show.

I purchased this 60" unit recently, and have been using it for about two weeks now. First off, the picture is so good, it's almost a spiritual experience. The colors are so vivid, and the picture so clear it is truly amazing, especially under panning or action scenes. The TV is very thin and the picture goes right to the edge with a very small bezel -- this space savings from having a small bezel makes this LG 60" the same dimensions as my Samsung 52" from 5 years ago but with a 60" picture, and it's only 1/5th as thick. Downloading content does happen very rapidly with no interruptions. The magic remote works well, and I have had no issues with using it. The built-in Skype camera works great, and we've used it to contact my parents over video call and experienced no issues. While this is a near-perfect TV in so many ways, there are a few issues that need to be addressed.

Here are the issues I have experienced (and YES, I have the latest firmware):

1. My wife and I were watching Abraham Lincoln - Vampire Slayer in 3D. The picture did make you feel like you were right in the middle of the action with such great colors and sound. However, there was a lip syncing issue that cropped up a few times while watching. Stopping the Blu-Ray, and restarting it over did appear to resolve the issue, but we had to do this a few times during watching the movie which is annoying, otherwise it looks like some cheesy foreign movie with bad English dubbed in as an afterthought.

2. I set the TV up for DLNA since most of our home content is on a NAS. Streaming the content worked really fast, and it should since it is on the LAN. The picture and sound quality were amazing as well. However, we do experience a lip sync issue frequently.

This is my first smart TV as well as my first 3D TV. Overall I'm very satisfied. I got the 55" TV and it sits in a living room which is very bright (6 huge 6' x 6' fixes glass window panes that face west with bright sunlight streaming in afternoon onwards). I relied quite a bit on the nice, detailed review by MGB04 (thank you!) and I agree with everything mentioned in that review. I too wish they include the Amazon Prime/Instant app but for now I have my Roku attached to it so it's not that bad.

I haven't hooked it up to a home theater or sound bar yet and I agree that it's still a good enough sound that comes out of the TV. I have an LG 3D Blu-ray player and the few 3D movies I've watched have been great as well. There is a bit more reflection on the screen than I was used to with my old 32" LCD Sharp Aquos (which was a 2008 model and had no reflection what-so-ever). But it isn't too noticeable when the TV is on.

I did not have the best experience with the delivery service - I had the delivery date changed to one day later than the default date but the delivery service called me one day early, i.e., the default date that Amazon had displayed. When they called I was at work and I pointed out that it was supposed to delivered the next day, the driver told me I could call their customer service to select another date the following week. Not wanting to wait that long, I left work and drove home (luckily just 20 minutes away). There was only one person, the driver of the delivery truck while the TV box has signs on it that says it needed to be lifted by two people - I helped the driver carry it to my living room.
