Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good TV I really wanted a Smart TV, but got this one instead because of the price. I have been nothing but impressed with this TV. It has excellent video, good audio, and it's very well built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best TV I have ever had! The clarity of the picture on this television is so sharp and so clear. I am extremely happy with this TV after having it for nearly a year now. I haven't had one bit of trouble at all and I'm loving all the inputs for peripherals. Now if I can just get my cable box to function at 100%.... The only thing that this TV is lacking on is sound. I use my headphones to get the nice bass richness that I like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Finally we came into the 21st century and gave up our old giant box tv for this slim LED... Absolutely love it, the picture is amazing, and the price was right. Thank you LG for making my television watching experience soooo much better..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV The picture is amazing, and sound is clear, and we had it up and running in minutes. This is my first HD TV. I considered 3D, but I just can't be sorry for "settling" for this TV. I've had it for six months, and I'd buy it all over again if had it to do over.
