What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No FreeviewPlus (hbbtv) while recording on PVR Major gripe is we watch something on freeviewplus when suddenly a scheduled recording starts on PVR, and we are booted from Freeview. We could be streaming netflix and a scheduled recording starts and we Dont get booted. This is clearly a apftwar/design issue. Another significant issue is the lack of dsvideo app support. WebOS is based on android and linux, so comeon. Port dsvideo over. Why no software updates either? The freeviewplus compatability with PVR is a clear failure in the product, that may suggest ACCC remedies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG 79UB980T Great Picture Purchased this tv in July and connected it to my Bose Home Theatre Sound System. What can i say, Great picture, Great Sound. Watching 4k Content from my DJI Phantom 3 Professional Drone is amazing. (Seeing as there is no 4k content available at the moment) I decided to make my own. Wow its just like being there, you could walk right into the tv its that good, 4k is great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Disappointing My first LG purchase and unfortunately very, very disappointing. The Magic Remote is horrendous to use. Why on earth is their no Guide or Input button on the remote, for example. Duh! (And you can see they've address its many shortcoming in next year's model). The WebOS is simply horrendous. Way too many clicks to do simple tasks, so it's very much over-engineered. No PIP which is simply unbelievable in this day and age, and especially for such a large TV with such a large price. I want to watch TV, while I am playing a console game. Manual is completely useless. And at the moment I cannot seem to record to anything other than the internal memory, which is useless. WiFi is a bit flaky, and my router is only 4 meters away with nothing in between. Picture is great, but all the "Smart" features are so DUMB. As I said very disappointing. No innovation whatsoever. Poor UX design.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from lg 84ub980t faulty Having spent so much money on a product you would expect a better quality build I've owned this lg 84ub980t since 27/12/14 I've had it replaced 3 times in the last 5 months. I'm beginning to think that the whole 84ub980t range is faulty I've owned a lot of lg tvs over the years but this product has been a nightmare :/ I don't think I'm ever going to buy another lg TV again after this one. I'm one very unsatisfied customer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome TV My first LG TV. it's amazing. Was so easy to setup even with connecting a DVD player and Home Theatre System that was Panasonic. The 3D is amazing it's better than being at a movie theatre buy far. You can make a LG account and watch free movies which is great. I also connected my Optus Fetch TV BOX that just took it to another level absolutely crazy was change Ng all new channels live streaming from the Internet. We had to update our modem and by doing that there was no lagging and everything just looks amazing. I would def recommend this TV I did a lot of homework before buying this one. The operating system is the easiest to use and kid friendly. The remote is awesome and quick. Cheers

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome picture, poor wifi Awesome picture Easy to set up...and fun Great sound The wifi is very unstable and not really usable for anything practical like streaming, skype or even downloading firmware updates. The instruction book recommends the wfif is within 1m (one meter) of the TV or that ethernet is used. The magic remote is great and works well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Fun Easy Setup Just received the TV on Saturday 23rd August, Fun, Fast and simple to set up. The interface is easy to use and fast access to internet. Downfall was the weight and getting it out of the box and attaching the stand. 2 of us struggled but it was eventually worth it. SD Channels on Foxtel not great, however HD is fantastic.
