What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from GREAT TV BUT YOU MIGHT GET FRUSTRATED Before buying the TV I called LG to check which wireless keyboards were compatible with the TV. LG told me the K200 and K400 from Logitec and they both would work perfectly. Bought the TV and keyboard, then when using you tube the mouse on the keyboard worked but the keyboard itself did not, could not type anything. When calling LG again to see what was going on I was informed that the keyboard works with everything BUT the youtube app the TV comes with... pretty poor considering that the tv had already been purchased, the box thrown away and was already hanging on the wall... then LG said that this was the best keyboard I could get for this tv as others would have more issues or not owrk at all. To minimize the issue I learnt that you can YOUTUBE through the TV's internet browser and that will work ok however you will never get a full-screen on that neither continuous video play, only on youtube. The keyboard works ok for everything else, indeed but doe not work GREAT, most of the times you start typing using the keyboard the first character you type does not come up, in picking this up I thought, well to solve this I will always type the first character of the word I am about to write twice and that should get me going good. It does work most of the times but some times you end up with an extra character you did not need, for example when you type www. you have to go wwww. you will usually get you 3 "w" in typing it 4 times but sometimes you get 4 out of 4 then it comes deleting the whole thing you typed ad start again (very hard to get the mouse to move to the beginning of a word). Wireless works fine but sometimes you get stuck on a page htinking that it is your wireless that had a glitch but then oyu try your computer from the same spot at the same time and it works perfectly. Otherwise the tv works great, the image is fantastic, internet capabilities are ok, the 3D feature is really good and image-wise, as other reviews I saw - is absolutely fantastic. Anyway enjoy the TV but if you are willing to use you tube as a daily tool you better check what else is out there in the market before you get this one. Have fun!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a wonderful TV, however... I just bought this TV today and it is amazing no doubt about it. It looks beautiful, the picture quality is amazing and definitely the best sound quality for a TV I have ever heard. It has a faster processor than the LM7600 and is definitely noticeable. Going to your apps and accessing your USB is really quick and fast. The only thing I'm trying to figure out is why it will not connect to my internet wirelessly, i'm positive it's not on my end, but either than that, I would recommend buying this TV for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very pleased I spent around 50 minutes in a retail store staring at lots of TVs and I finally decided on this one. The picture seemed to be as good as the 55LM9600 (even though the refresh rate on the 9600 is supposed to be a lot better) and as good as the top of the line and very expensive Samsung. For sports I compared cricket, iron man, tennis, and this seemed to be similar in performance to the aforementioned models. The only thing that was better was the plasma TVs, but it wasn't that obvious. You also need to remember that when you have the TV by itself any shortcomings are probably forgotten. Using it at home was even more of a surprise - I've never had a smart TV before, and this TV with the magic remote and/or the free Android remote app I've downloaded makes it a breeze to use (you really need something to type with, which the app gives you!). On TV mode it barely warms up, gets slightly warm when watching internet TV programs though. Nothing like how hot some of the other TVs were in the shop. I love the full web browser, very fast wireless built in, magic remote, android app, passive 3D, able to use a proper HDD in USB ... well the list goes on. I think the only thing it doesn't have is gesture control, but I haven't once thought "if only it had gesture control!" Haven't been able to try the dual play as I don't have a game console, but I think that if you run it through an AV receiver you shouldn't have the audio lag that one of the other reviewers mentioned. I think the current pricing (around $2200 for the after Christmas sales) make it really good value (it is a lot of money, but this is relative to other TVs the same price), worth the extra $ over the 7600, and the quality of this picture makes me wonder why you would go for the 9600 which was around $500 more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptionally happy but for one thing... Overall this TV is awesome...extremely easy to set up and connecting to my WiFi network couldn't have been easier. The passive 3D quality is astounding (glasses included x 6 - 4 passive 3D & 2 dual play) and I can't wait for my children to be blown away by the technology. Streaming across my wireless network is super fast and PS3 games in 3D give new flavour to games I haven't played for a while. Still playing with the Apps but early impressions are very good. My only issue is audio lag when playing dual play gaming on the PS3 - it's not out by much but enough to notice (maybe I'm being picky) and I'm still playing with the tweaking of settings in this mode so could still turn out okay...also going to update my HDMI cable to a v1.4a 3D capable one. I would recommend looking at this model in store and I'm sure you won't be disappointed if you do.
