Settings needed! LG 55LS4500

by m_tegey / November 11, 2012 12:51 PM PST

I just bought a 55" LG 55LS4500 LED-LCD from Best Buy. I like the TV so far and because its a warranty replacement for a two year old 55" Insignia LCD so I have no complaints. I am however a little leary that I can't find any information about this TV. So if anybody else also has this model please submit your feedback! Thanks!!!

Here are 2 settings people have tried that they like. I will post the website link where I found these settings at the bottom. As of 1/17/2012, there were 2 primary settings that were readable and simple, and a couple others for personal likes. I prefer the Second settings, However it depends if your firmware is updated. I am using the original Firmware, Updated firmware has more setting as seen in the first suggestion.

Also, nearly everyone disables the Energy Saving Feature. It adjusts the brightness of the screen depending on how bright it is in the room. If it is bright in the room, it will brighten the screen. If it is dark in the room it will darken.
Most people like consistent coloring, so they disable it.

Energy Saving - Off
