LG 55LHX LCD HDTV First Impressions Review

55 in.

The most impressive aspect of the LG 55LHX is its wireless connectivity features with its media box.

Controls, Menu & Remote

Remote

We didn't get to use the remote for the 55LHX, as they aren't released yet. We did get to take the TV for a spin using last year's remote control, which was what LG was controlling the TVs with. The remote felt good in the hand and the buttons were placed nicely, but it isn't clear how much LG is going to alter the remote for the new models. There are a few more features this year, so there will likely be some added buttons. The media box and television can be controlled using the same remote control.

Note: this is last year's remote model, not the actual remote for the 55LHX.

Controls

The on-TV controls for the 55LHX are located in the bottom right corner of the set and are illuminated by a blue light. The buttons are labeled with symbols rather than text, which could make them confusing to unfamiliar users. The buttons are a bit awkward as they don't offer any key travel as they are touch sensitive and are embedded into the frame of the television. They are well positioned, however, and the blue light that illuminates them is stylish and useful.

Menu

We didn't get a chance to check out the menu on the LG 55LHX, so we can't offer any insightful information about its layout or design.
