The LG 55LX9500 is a beast; and an absolutely magnificent, beautiful one at that. Slick looks, powerful performance and a highly promising viewing experience make LG’s flagship model a must have for all those who want bigger, better and thinner. Of course, happiness comes at a cost, and the price tag wrapped around this baby will give you the heebie-jeebies if you’ve got a bank balance like mine. Stick around and read some more if you want to find out if this baby can put its money where its mouth is.

The beautiful beast

It took two people to lift this TV out of its box – it really is that huge. And it's also super thin, so we had to be really careful while setting it up. But once it was placed on our A/V room’s table, we had to take a step back to admire it.

The first thing I noticed was how thin the bezel was (16mm), and then I checked out the depth, and that was even more amazing (2.3mm to 31.6mm). The border is piano black in colour, which also means that it attracts fingerprints like the paparazzi to a celeb. A couple of other things I noticed which added to the aesthetic value of this TV were the company logo, which was lit, and the swivel glass stand with a metal shaft which make it feel safe and sturdy – no wobbling around with this one.

Super slim design

The remote is equally nice looking and has buttons that are large, rubberized and back lit (separate button for this function) so just about anyone can operate it. The remote also sits comfortably in one’s hand and the volume and channel buttons have a different hump-shaped design so that they’re singled out. Another good thing about this remote is that it has plenty of shortcuts to commonly used features such as 3D, A/V mode and energy saving.
