What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value My only dislike is the sound quality could be better

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A pleasant surprise. First purchase of a flat screen TV, did a lot of research and selected this model. It was easy to transport home, not heavy, super easy to set up and the picture quality & colour is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to setup, Great Picture & Sound Purchased on Black Friday. Brought it home and had it set up in about 20 minutes. Good quality of colour, sound and brightness. This is our 2nd LG TV. Now have 2 of them. Only negative is that the power cord is to short. Our wall outlet was about 3 1/2 feet from the back of the TV and we had to us and extentsion cord as power cord supplied was to short.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love my LG tv and all its features Love the size, we bought a great stand and when watching I am right there where the action is. Great colours, variety of picture modes, can play games, use HDMI, etc. I would recommend to anyone that this is a great product. I look forward to years of service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible! I couldn't be happier with this TV. Got this on sale and expected something that was mediocre at best, but it's really stood out. Compared to my old LG this looks fantastic, and I love that it has so many neat features for such a low cost TV!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not really an IPS panel Very misleading. Known to LG agents that this is not an IPS panel, but site not updated.
