Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Television I've Owned This was my first LCD television and it did not disappoint. I almost bought a cheaper brand tv, but decided on the LG at the last minute. I'm glad I did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great TV Great PRICE Great tv, great picture, good sound, great price. Only problem I've had is that it only has 2 hdmi inputs when i need 4. Overall tho, I'd buy it again without hesitation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT I recommend this tv for anyone who wants a great product for the money you are willing to spend. The picture is great, and is right for those potential owners who dont want a smart tv that cost way more. I am an LG believer who has a great product, I will not buy anything else when it comes to HDTV's. It is great with my gaming system as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice for the Price Easy to use. Nice picture quality and durable. The built in NetFlix and Yahoo Widgets are a great bonus for the price you pay. Good Product.
