The second largest member of LG’s 6500 family of 3D LED-LCD HD flat panel sets, the LG 55LW6500 brings a 54.6 inch diagonal screen that allows you to view a complete picture regardless of where you sit or your viewing angle.
The LG 6500 series has 2D to 3D conversion capabilities allowing you to watch any video output in 3D with the four pair of Passive 3D glasses provided. Put on a DVD video recording of your daughter’s soccer game. She will be thrilled watching herself kick in that winning goal in 3D! The first time you view your new LG set, even in 2D, you’ll wonder why you ever thought your older set was good—even satisfactory. This set’s picture is absolutely brilliant whether watching movies streamed from the Internet, on DVD and broadcast transmissions.
If you are accustomed to viewing an older television from any angle in the room, you need to make sure your new set is satisfactory for that type of viewing. If the specifications do not mention viewing angle, then you should move on to another television. The good news for the LG 55LW6500 is that its Cinema 3D features wide angle viewing so you get the 3D effect anywhere from lying on the floor to across the room in your favorite chair. The LG 55LW6500 LED edge lighting produces a colorful picture with superb contrast. The viewing picture is constantly refreshed for optimum coloring and shadows with LED Plus backlighting and a 9,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio. The 54.6 inch (diagonal) screen runs a 240Hz refresh rate using an application called TruMotion to keep fast action and sport sequences smooth and flicker free.
Two 10-watt speakers provide selectable surround sound modes via Infinite 3D Surround to enhance any program, Internet app or digital media. The LG 55LW6500 also has an auto volume leveler application that adjusts dynamically for sound spiking events like special effects or commercials. Clear Voice II does the same to enhance dialogue.
Smart TV with LG Apps gives you access to sports, social, music, video and image applications as well as providing direct access via web browser capability. The LG 55LW6500 can be connected to your home network via Ethernet cable or wirelessly with its internal 802.11n class transmitter. Using LG’s Smart TV dashboard, you quick access to media streaming apps from Netflix, Amazon and Napster from a single screen. Need to stay connected socially? Access your Facebook, Twitter or You Tube accounts from the Smart TV dashboard. The included second “Magic Motion” remote control is used for these applications.
The 55LW6500 is 1.2 inches thick when wall mounted with a 400mm VESA compatible mount. When mounted on the included swivel stand, you will need at least a 14 inch deep surface. At 49 pounds without a stand and a full 51 inches wide, the LG 55LW6500 can be mounted or positioned by two people easily.
The LW6500 class Smart TVs ship with two remote controls. A standard infrared remote is included for the television and video viewing functions. LG introduces a “Magic Motion” remote to control the Smart TV interface and Internet applications. Using the motion sensing technology, the Magic Motion remote is easy to use featuring a point-and-click control and five buttons. The remote acts like a wireless mouse with wrist movements and flicking to move around the screens. A lot of people have commented positively about the ease of use of the “Magic Motion” remote control. You use it in the same way you use a Wii controller. It truly is a great improvement over older style remotes.

You don’t have to purchase these glasses separately as they are included with the package.
