    The G2 is LG’s Sweet Spot for 2012!! (George Jetson would LOVE this!), May 31, 2012

    This review is from: LG 55G2 55-Inch Cinema 3D 1080p 120Hz LED-LCD HDTV with Google TV and Six Pairs of 3D Glasses (Electronics)
    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    The LG 55G2 is a revolutionary product. Combining the very best of LG’s well above average and mature software operating systems, top of the line IPS panel technology, attractive/futuristic styling and a knockout out version of Google TV powered by a powerful dual core processor, the LG G2 55 Inch Cinema 3D LED/LCD is an entertainment powerhouse!

    I couldn’t wait to pop this out of the box and have a look. It is gorgeous and the 55 inch screen is just the right size to fully immerse yourself into a Blu Ray movie and especially a 3D movie.
    All my other LG’s have been 47 inches and this is my first 55 inch screen. It really is impressive to see it in action. The brushed aluminum bezel and faux metal stand finish matches perfectly. It really does look cushty!

    The screen is semi glossy but not a mirror like a Plasma can be. I watch in a semi darkened room and it looks fantastic. The speakers are above average for a flat panel. Honestly though, if you spend this much on a TV I would hope you are planning to use at least a sound-bar and sub. But as it is the sound produced by the G2 is more than fine for everyday viewing.

    Featuring the very latest passive 3D technology for comfort and ease of use and a 1080p native panel resolution coupled with a 120hz refresh rate, you get outstanding video resolution that can easily make your TV shows , DVD’s , Streaming Premium Services, Blu Ray discs and media collection look their best while completely immersing you in the action. Staying home never looked so good!
    (And of course LG has included SIX pairs of passive 3D glasses so you can start watching 3D content right away!)

    The G2 will look and function equally as well mounted or using the included stand. The stand, while heavy plastic designed to resemble metal, is extremely easy to put together and is the most stable of any TV stand I have ever had. It went together quickly and is solid as a rock. I wish it could tilt forward a bit as well as from side to side, but otherwise I like it very much. I am pushing 60 and with bad arthritis I was still able to unpack, set-up and place the television on my TV table by myself. A Phillips head screwdriver and a bit of patience and TLC are all that is needed. I had this TV out of the box and playing a Blu Ray disc in just about 45 minutes from start to finish.

    The actual on screen set-up went very quickly. You will need a Google account (they’re free) so you can sign in and take advantage of many more features offered. I went ahead and set up the TV without signing in and everything went well. You can use the included IR blaster to control your cable box/DVR with the G2 remote or you can use your Harmony to do it the way you are used to. You have MANY options for controlling this beastie!

    For those of you used to previous LG models or even the newest models, you will soon notice that accessing the picture adjustment menus (or any other menu) is not quite as fast as before. You need to hit the “home” button on the remote and then point and click on the tool icon next to the input you are currently viewing. From there you get multiple menus that include sub menus. Once you get to the main menu you wish, scrolling up and down is easy, selecting your settings is quick (press and hold to drag settings icons) and if you get lost just press “back” to get back to the previous page. If you are at all computer savvy this process will be 2nd nature and a joy to use. For people of a certain age it may prove a bit more challenging.

    The best thing to do is give yourself a nice long tour of the software interfaces to get acquainted with things. This could take quite a long time, depending on how much you wish to know, as the menus and options are seemingly endless up to a point. I love it myself. You can pretty much bend this device to your will and customize things the way you want them to be. Again, if you are not tech savvy, this is probably not the TV for you but if you were raised on computers you will love it.

    I have recently written a few reviews about various new generation LG TV models I currently own and because many features are common to the latest software and display technology used here, I will paraphrase certain portions of my previous reviews when they apply to the very impressive 55G2.

    But with that said, the 55G2 is virtually in a class by itself and here are some reasons why:

    No amount of software or bells and whistles will substitute for a great picture. So HOW IS the picture quality on the G2? I had read an early review on CNET that seemed dire. I was NOT expecting much but after powering up and inputting my calibrated settings I use with my LG 7600 the screen came alive with POP and Crisp Clear Fine detail! I was starting to rock and roll! OH YEAH!!!

    The 55G2 incorporates the very best of LG’s combined tech of the last 5 years with…

    Google – the answer to your tv’s problems, or not?, June 20, 2012

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    If you’re considering this tv set, the main question you need to consider is whether the Google TV features will outweigh the sacrifices you’ll make in picture quality and other functions compared to a non-Google tv. I base this on the premise that at the time of this review, for the same screen size and price, you are choosing between this tv and the LG Cinema Screen 55LM8600 55-Inch Cinema 3D 1080p 240 Hz Dual Core LED-LCD HDTV with Smart TV and Six Pairs of 3D Glasses.

    For reference, I have both this set and the 47″ version of the LM8600, which I’ve also reviewed. I chose to use the G2 in my main living room because for our family’s needs, it’s a better fit. We have just a cable box and a Sony blu-ray player, plus an xbox 360 and Wii. The G2 comes with IR blasters that let the Google remote control the cable box and blu-ray (with some caveats that I’ll explain). We don’t use a receiver, so all the sound is from the tv. This means that for most functions we can use just the LG’s Google magic remote and not have to fumble with 2-3 different ones.

    Picture Quality
    —————
    The picture quality is better on the LM8600 than the G2. Better blacks, higher refresh rate, and a seemingly more natural 3D out-of-the-box. The LM8600 is also a smart TV, so it still has many of the same apps as does the G2, but you lose the IR blasters and the QWERTY remote control.

    Don’t get me wrong – this set looks REALLY nice and the default 120Hz seems more like traditional motion than the ultra-sharp, almost surreal look of the LM8600. For normal family viewing, this set is fine, but for major sports watchers, 3D content watchers, etc, you might want to consider spending your money on a tv with better TV panel specs vs. the Google features.

    Yes, I’ve been able to notice some color/brightness differences near the corners and edges, however I’m not the type to obsess over these. Additionally, while other sets like the LM8600 offer local dimming, from what I’ve read, many times the preference is to turn those features down or off completely once the set is properly calibrated. I usually do this, as I don’t like seeing the set dynamically change brightness as the scene changes. To me that’s more noticable than trying to pick out certain small details in shadows, etc.

    Google TV Functions:
    ——————–
    Google TV is NOT the end-game for Smart tv’s. While it allows really easy search and web integration, the app support is limited. For instance, Amazon Instant Video is only supported through the Chrome browser and not a dedicated app. Even worse, Hulu and Hulu Plus aren’t supported at all – not even through Chrome. Unlike the LM8600, I couldn’t find an easy to access app market for the G2.

    Simply typing on the QWERTY remote instantly brings up search results, whether for tv listings, premium content (paid) listings, or web results. This can be really convenient to just type in a show’s name and be able to quickly find when it next airs, on what channel, etc. When you set up Google tv, you enter your cable/dish provider so that it can search the local listings. Search results can also include rentable movies from premium services like Netflix, but you can choose to filter by free results only.

    The Chrome browser works really well and also allows most flash content to be played. Very nice.

    User interface & more thoughts on Google tv
    ——————————————-
    LG’s main interface looks very similar between the G2 and LM8600, however the 8600 actually offers MORE flexibility in terms of apps, custom tabs for your favorites, moving items around on the home screen, etc. I find it very frustrating that the G2 will let you add favorites to websites and the like, but that you can’t place them where you want. For instance, I added a favorite to the Amazon Instant Video homepage in Chrome. While this favorite shows up in my list of apps, I can’t set it to be on the main home-screen of the G2′s app interface. Neither can I add or rearrange the order of the tabs that organize the various apps (ie. Premium apps, 3D showcase, Favorites, or Most-Used).

    Along the bottom of the G2′s home screen is a variety of icons, however mousing over them doesn’t reveal what they are. You actually have to hit the directional arrows on the remote to highlight a particular icon in order for its text description to appear. And while you can rearrange the order of (most of) the icons, you’re limited as to which icons can be placed on that bar.

    There’s also a “Widget” view, however the only widget I’ve found is a clock – pretty useless.

    Google Magic Remote

    The remote is also a mixed bag…

    This review is from: LG 55G2 55-Inch Cinema 3D 1080p 120Hz LED-LCD HDTV with Google TV and Six Pairs of 3D Glasses (Electronics)

    I don’t know if 8M:1 contrast ratio is any better, but the pics on this set is spectacular enough. And it has Google TV built in. You could get a cheaper plasma set and slap on a Google TV box for $99, but you won’t get as nicer picture quality, and having the box built into TV is cleaner. I have my 100 mbps connection hooked to it and watching programs on Internet mostly. When I need local channels $19 antenna picks up 50 channels. Who needs cable?

    On down side, it seems to be slower than it should be. The spec says duel core processor, but it is slower than my 5 year old laptop over wireless. It takes longer to render nyt.com, for example. And it is clocked at 14 mbps download speed where as my laptop on the same 100mbps connection clocks at 60 mbps. (UPDATE: I ran the speed test more thoroughly, and the speed on the TV was same as the laptop. The initial test must have been a fluke). Google TV still has ways to go before it can claim to be an appliance too. (I haven’t seen Apple TV, but I’ll bet it’s UI is cleaner and more intuitive). It’s remote control takes some time to get used to also. You have to click several times to get to the last channel or one of your favorite channels. (menu->arrow down->last, menu->favorite channels->your channel).

    I’m still giving 5 stars because of the picture quality, and being able to use your 55″ as your computer without slapping on anything is a kick. 3D is cool too.

    UPDATE: After 6 mo use, I’m taking a star away because some videos that work flawlessly on my 5 year old laptop frequently malfunction. NYT video sometimes runs at half the speed getting out of sync with sound, and Flash crash is so frequent that it is practically unusable. When scrolling, the images will lurch up separate from texts on some web pages. Not sure if it is the slow 1GHz L9 processor or Google TV software at fault, but forget about using it as a general purpose browser.
