LG INFINIA 55LX9500 Review

LG has been a huge competitor for decades in the world of television technology. The new LG INFINIA 55LX9500 LED TV lives up to the high standard they set for themselves. The one thing that makes this TV stand out against the crowd is its 3D image technology. Its 3D technology has some kinks that need to be worked out, but they still pull it off to an extent. The 55LX9500 is one of the thinnest side-lit LED TVs we have seen, at just under an inch thick. While it does offer a ton of features and has some new technology, you’ll need to have some spare change to buy this TV. Even though it does cost a little more than other TVs it received our TopTenREVIEWS Silver Award because of the outstanding picture quality, slick design and overall huge list of features available.


Like any high-end LED TV on the market today, the LG INFINIA 55LX9500 has a ton of extras to keep you entertained without ever leaving the couch. The 9500 series has more or less the same widgets and apps you will find on the LG INFINIA 55LE8500; these include YouTube, Vudu, Picasa and a variety of other widgets to play around with. These are all powered by Yahoo. We expect more apps to be coming out in the near future. While it does have a large selection of extras, the list doesn’t compare to that of the Vizio XVT553SV which offers an almost endless number of things to do and is very easy to navigate.

One thing that really makes the LG INFINIA 55LX9500 stand out against the crowd is its very slick and thin design. The black border around the screen is one of the thinnest we've seen, which makes the viewing area much larger. This is something we are expecting to see from future LED TVs because of the very good look and slightly larger viewing area on the screen. This LED TV is also just over 1 inch thick, making it one of the thinnest LED TVs on the market. This also allows you to easily access all of the connections when you hook up all your components. Overall the features on the LG INFINIA 55LX9500 make it very easy to use and provide hours of fun for just about anyone.


The display is by far the most important thing to look at when purchasing a new LED TV. Anyone can produce a TV with lots of little doodads and extras that make it look like it is going to blow you away, but you can't fake quality when it comes to the picture on the screen. LG understands that picture quality is the most important feature on a high-quality LED TV and has thus spent a lot of time focusing on the 3D and 2D displays. Much like the LG INFINIA 55LE8500, this model does an outstanding job when it comes to local dimming and amazingly true color on a large screen. But much like the older model, the LG INFINIA 55LX9500 still has a glass front which has a lot of glare and washes out in well-lit rooms.

We found a few issues with the 2D picture quality on this model. We think they focused so much on the 3D aspect of this TV that they neglected to ensure good2D quality. At times the 1080p display is a little below par, and when the color saturation and dimming settings are lowered you can actually see a blue tint from the LED lights. While these issues certainly aren't prevalent, if you’re going to spend the money for an LED TV you want to get a product you're really happy with. LG may have noticed this slight lack in picture quality and thus implemented a very complex set of display adjustments. There is almost nothing you can’t tweak just a little to enhance the picture. This is a huge plus and makes some of the minor issues go to the back of your mind because they can most likely be fixed if you spend the time to do so.


Like most high-end LED TVs on the market today, the LG INFINIA 55LX9500 is set up with all the basic connections to get a basic home entertainment center set up and ready to go. The four HDMI inputs, two component video inputs and a few extras like an Ethernet port, PC input and two USB connections make things very easy to set up. The only thing we would like to see on this TV is a slot for memory cards; however, you can connect your camera or camcorder directly to the USB port if you wish to do so. Overall the connections are easy to access and there are no extra cables needed to get your LED TV up and running.

Help and Support:

A company that backs up their products with great service is a company that will keep people coming back for more. LG has been in the business of online shopping for quite some time and offers a variety of ways for anyone to get help with purchasing, maintenance or any other issues. LG's online chat is by far the easiest way to get the answers you need about your LED TV without waiting for an email response or waiting on hold for someone to pick up the phone. There are also online manuals in case you lose the one that comes with the TV. Sadly we could not find a FAQs page, which for some is the easiest way to get the answers you need without ever contacting the company itself.


The LG INFINIA 55LX9500 LED TV produces some of the clearest and most stable images when the settings are right and when you are in a well-lit room. And if you're planning to use this TV in a home theater room it will get the job done with flying colors. We understand that 3D is a new technology, but LG still dropped the ball compared to other companies that have produced much higher quality 3D TVs. If you are willing to pay a little extra for a 3D TV that we hope will improve with some updates and one that produces an amazing picture, this is the LED TV for you.
