What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great, until HDMI went out! Everything was great until HDMI circuit board went bad after 6 years, when researching problem , seen that this was a problem with many LG TV's from same time frame, which disapointed me, since I own many LG products , with no issues, took a chance and purchased another LG TV, see how new one works out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great TV, Poor LG lifespan This TV was great until I started having HDMI signal problems. Only my HDMI 1 ports worked; HDMI 2, 3, 4 stopped working. Upon some research I learned that this turned out to be a large problem for this model TV. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
