About LG Electronics

Unlike other LED HDTVs that use "edge" lighting, LG's 55LH90 uses a full array of LED backlights which employ local dimming techniques for more precise picture control, resulting in deeper blacks, a wider color gamut and smoother motion, for a more natural picture.

This set is has a fantastic picture. It's easy to use. The manual is on CD and not in paper form which is not customer friendly for a lot of people. The biggest problem with this set is the lipsink problem. I have looked at many many digital tv's. I have installed and setup many digital tv's for friends and family. I have never seen a lipsink problem as bad as this set is. The problem is it doesn't happen all of the time. Sometimes it is minimal and sometimes it is extremely bad. I have heard...

This set is has a fantastic picture. It's easy to use. The manual is on CD and not in paper form which is not customer friendly for a lot of people. The biggest problem with this set is the lipsink problem. I have looked at many many digital tv's. I have installed and setup many digital tv's for friends and family. I have never seen a lipsink problem as bad as this set is. The problem is it doesn't happen all of the time. Sometimes it is minimal and sometimes it is extremely bad. I have heard there is a usb firmware fix coming for this problem. IF SO WHEN? Again a remarkable TV picture. Please advise when the lipsink problem has been fixed.

Ehhhhh, its ok...

The LG 55LH90 has been somewhat of a disappointment so far. May be it was all the hype that led me to the unit. Picture quality is good, but some of the less expensive Sammy's out there are just as good in PQ at the same size even with edge LED tech, even better in some cases. Even the 2010 630 Sammy seems to look better when side by side. The full array of local dimming is ok. Ive tried various calibrations found at [@]. Each to their own though.

The LG 55LH90 has been somewhat of a disappointment so far. May be it was all the hype that led me to the unit. Picture quality is good, but some of the less expensive Sammy's out there are just as good in PQ at the same size even with edge LED tech, even better in some cases. Even the 2010 630 Sammy seems to look better when side by side. The full array of local dimming is ok. Ive tried various calibrations found at [@]. Each to their own though. [...]Bottom line, although it is a good unit, IMO it is not any better than than many other units out there even with its "unique" features. If I had to do it again, I would go with a 2010 Sammy with comparable features (at a lower price.) Also, found the same exact unit (55LH90) almost $300 cheaper 4 days later at another online retailer and it included a LG bluray player. I paid [$] @ Adorama.Also, remember this is NOT a network ready HDTV, you will HAVE to use a bluray player (or equvalent) to utilize a network or stream video, but I knew this going into the deal.This WAS going to be my main living room media video unit, however after seeing the unit in action, it really seems to be a bedroom type of TV - meaning watch until you fall asleep. CNET was right about the THX mode, its less than to be desired. I am torn between 2 and 3 stars as a rating.

Discontinued for a reason

Great TV, no complaints after a year+

By

We have this TV hooked up to a sound system so have not used the internal sound system at all. The size of the TV fits well and is around 12' from the couch. Great for sports, nature programs and attachment to the Wii.

LG 55LH90 55" TV Review

By

I considered purchasing a 50"+ TV for over a year. In the December 2009 issue of their magazine Consumer Reports rated this specific model as the BEST that they could find/rate. I held off because the price was reportedly higher then most of the other top rated models, but after buying this one I am 100% pleased with it in every way. I can't rate its durability yet, as I have only had it for a month, but the low price of the 5 year extended in-home warranty made any repair concerns I might have had to be moot. I highly recommend this model and brand.

Love my 55LH90

By

Received my unit & was impressed with excellent packaging- preventing damage in transit. Hooked up and was "live" in 5 minutes. Excellent picture quality with generous outlets for any type of home entertainment system one could imagine. Glad I made this purchase decision.

Great TV

By

This LG TV has a great high def picture. I particularly love the lack of glare as I have two large windows behind the area where I usually sit. Glare was the biggest complaint about my previous TV. This HDTV was a snap to set up and connect to accessories. Couldn't ask for a better TV.
