LG 55LE5500 55-Inch HDTV Review
LG 55LE5500 is about 1.1 cm thick, which is even slimmer than LE8500 1.4 inches thick. This difference is due to edge-lit and uses full range of LED-backlit display on the two TVs. This TV has touched a glossy black frame with purple on the outside, which provides a subtle accent the dark and full of red under the Samsung UNB7000 series compared. But we do not think it will go well with the interior. The bezel is very thin and that makes the TV very compact.
LCD has been aggressively challenging plasma TVs lately because of its multi-zone LED tail lights, which brighten or dim the different image areas independently. This is often called “local dimming” technology is known and we are big fans of him because of the deep black level performance, but there are small compromises like blooming or stray light. This is the case of the LG 55LE5500 we found that the problem of stray light was seen a large extent. Most people do not know what exactly is dimming. This technology means that the TV re-used instead of lights to illuminate the panel from edge of rear LED. There are many benefits to this TV and provides brilliant colors, good performance in bright rooms, sexy, thin frame, and many Internet functions, but if you are particular about image quality, look elsewhere.
LED modules, on the LG 55LE5500 are located on the edge of the screen and it is similar to what we saw on Samsung’s UNC8000 series. But it still manages to also deliver local dimming. LED is’ here actually LG’s edge with local dimming backlight function and the manufacturer says the 55-inch has twelve segments addressable. The 8500-series, on the other hand, give full range of local diming and has more than 200 zones . This is the reason why the LE5500 miles behind perfection.
LG LG 55LE5500 comes with wireless media box that you can wirelessly connect the transmission such as HDMI. This is a great help in custom installations. There are many Internet options on this TV and would be built so well in wireless capabilities have been better. But the TV does not have a so you would wish to get some wireless bridge or purchase a dongle. We connected up LG Dongle and it worked quite well.
LG 55LE5500 offers a number of features that Netcast is pretty good. You will not find anything missing here, apart from Slacker radio or Pandora. Video quality on Vudu and Netflix was pretty good from both the wireless dongle and Ethernet. We have not test DLNA network streaming or USB.
There is nothing new about the non-streaming Internet functions. Apart from Picasa, everything is from Yahoo Widgets. When we reviewed this body, gave us 11 TV Widgets access. Yahoo has enhanced its platform, the answers are now faster and widgets very quickly. But there is still room for improvement. The most important widgets takes about 20 seconds to load and people who lack patience, easily frustrated. Selection of apps and user-friendliness was not as good as Vizio and Samsung.
55LE5500 LG offers you a platform, the games offer is a separate and did not have the Yahoo Widget Games. They are fairly basic, you get games like Whack a Mole and the Soduku playing pretty frustrating to, on a large screen TV. The TV also has Skype and a microphone you need to purchase separately for it. We have not test this feature because it is not yet published. LG offers the best selection of user-menu controls for picture and it has now improved even more. You can now dejudder processing, it is something that Samsung only does this way back in 2010. You also get specific settings for Gamma (2.4, 2.2 and 1.9), they are placed in the big ten-point system in IRE Expert menu. You do not receive THX modes, they are reserved only for the more expensive models. It is a replacement in the form of cinema and you can just, as opposed to THX.
Just like last year panels, all picture modes that are adjustable to be separate for each input. The Picture Wizard has been improved and it is adapted from some test images, the newcomers easy to use and you get an idea of what help will look like the picture.
