About - LG 55LS4500

The LG 55LS4500 is an LCD , LED & plasma TV available from LG. The 55LS4500 typically costs between $699.99 - $899.00.

Consumer Reports recommends that you match the features on a model to the needs you have. Here's our take on some of the specifications and features that are commonly available on LCD , LED & plasma TV models like the 55LS4500.

Native resolution:
Applies to "fixed-pixel" display types such as LCD, plasma, as well as DLP and LCoS for front projectors. It's expressed in horizontal by vertical pixels (for the picture elements making up a displayed image). Incoming signals of higher or lower resolution must be down- or up-converted as necessary to match the set's native resolution. Generally, the more pixels a display has, the better it can reproduce fine detail from a high quality source -- but other factors may also affect peformance.

HDMI inputs:
The total number of these inputs on the TV. Front and side inputs are more easily accessed than those in the rear, and thus might be convenient for temporary use, but the cables are more visible. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a relatively new form of digital audio/video connection found on TVs, monitors, Blu-ray players, DVD players, receivers, cameras and digital TV tuners. HDMI has become the preferred connection method instead of component, etc., as it carries audio and video signals on the same cable. HDMI supports a range of standard- and high-definition video formats, although it can vary for each product. HDMI supports up to eight channels of uncompressed, 24-bit/192kHz audio. HDMI version 1.3, doubled the bandwidth of its predecessor (HDMI 1.2), and added support for 30-, 36- and 48-bit color depth and a new "xvYCC" color standard, as well as the new Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master lossless audio formats (See "Dolby True HD" and "DTS-HD Master Audio") used in Blu-ray discs. HDMI version 1.4 added full support for 3D television, an audio return path, and ethernet network connection. Some Blu-ray discs, in order to be viewed in high-definition, will require that the Blu-ray player and the HDTV/display be connected using an HDMI cable as a copy-protection measure. HDMI allows content providers to limit the quality of the component video outputs, and your ability to record the content.

Screen goes black periodically and often
Best Uses
Purchased in April 2013. Screen began going black anywhere from 5 sec to half-hour. Troubleshot with cable company and tried all fixes. Bedroom tv on same cable has no issues. Have had five conversations with LG customer service to get a repair. Was promised a call back twice to schedule repairs and have not heard from them. I have emailed and called back again and again. The TV is unusable and LG customer service is terrible. Actually it is nonexistent. I will never buy another LG product after this experience.

I'm not sure what the other posters are talking about. The sound quality is no better and no worse than any of the other super thin LED TV's. The picture quality is ABOVE average for all the 55 TV's we compared it to, including models costing almost $3,000 in the Magnolia section at the local big box store. Here's whats nice about it as well, it is light enough that my wife and I were able to take it out of our vehicle, walk it up the front stairs and actually unbox it and set it up ourselves quite easily.
