LG 55″ 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV (55LN5100)

LG 55LN5100 Black Friday Deal

November 26, 2013

in TOP 5 Black Friday Deals


Black Friday SPECIAL Price $499 at Best Buy: EARLY BIRD in-store DEAL
Do we RECOMMEND this Black Friday deal or NOT? Yes, if you can grab it for $499, we highly recommend it. However, if you can invest a little bit more, we recommend the Sony KDL-55W900A. It’s like the BEST 55″ TV EVER. Just look at the customer reviews and you’ll understand. See how many 1 star, 2 star, and 3 star reviews you can count :-) If you’d rather stick with an LG, we recommend the  LG 55LN5710 SMART TV over the “dumb” LG 55LN5100. The Panasonic TC-L58E60 is also another highly recommended TV of this size range.
Brand LG
Model 55LN5100
Screen Size 55 inches
LCD/LED or Plasma LED
3D No, we recommend this LG 55LA6900 or this Samsung UN55F6400 if you want a high quality 55 inch 3D TV
HD Resolution 1080p Full HD Resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels)
Refresh Rate 120 Hz
Energy Star energy efficiency standards met? Yes, estimated energy costs are only $12/year
Wi-Fi connectivity No
Web Browser No
Apps No
HDMI inputs 2
USB inputs 1
Other inputs 1 component (rear), 1 composite (rear) and 1 RF antenna/cable (rear).
Any special features? Virtual surround sound, Resolution upscaler
Special Remarks Recommended, if you’re on a budget. Good for everyday TV watching, however, if you want maximum picture quality with rich colors and high contrast ratios together with internet access, Wi-Fi compatibility, web-browser, and smart apps, consider the Sony KDL-55W900A, LG 55LN5710 SMART TV, or Panasonic TC-L58E60.
Any negatives No built-in Wi-Fi, no ethernet port, so you’ll need to buy a set top box like the Roku Streaming Player if you want to go online. e.g. access NetFlix, Amazon Prime content, Hulu etc. etc. It also doesn’t have 3D (but that’s not a must for everyone). And it’s picture quality isn’t comparable to the ones mentioned above

This is BS false advertising! Best Buy advertised and sold this as 120hz Trumotion when the manufacturer sticker on the unit states 60hz and no Trumotion anywhere! The lawsuits should be coming momentarily!

Are you sure? I highly doubt Best Buy will do such a thing!
