What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic TV Wow great tv with 3 HDMI ports and great picture quality. Have had it for over a year now and zero issues. Also purchased LG sound bar and woofer, great combo. Will buy more LD consumer products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this as a Christmas gift for my daughter's apartment. Connectivity was easy and the picture quality was excellent. We purchased three TVs in total and the LG was the best of all of them. We could connect it to her iPhone easily too for viewing pictures and listening to her music from her phone. Fantastic product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Machine Bought this on sale a few months ago after reading several great reviews about it. As a single person, I found it very easy to set up on my own. I have been very happy with it, using it mostly to stream television over wifi. The OS is fairly easy to navigate. The built-in sound is sufficient, but I did recently upgrade to using an LG sound bar - it definitely makes a big difference and I'm wishing I had done it sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tv ! I just bought this LF5800 smart Tv and Love it. so many features to enjoy and easy to hook up and connect to additional devices and it is extremely light,a big plus. One improvement would be adding a bigger sound/speaker system or include a soundbar. But overall I amm very happy with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This TV has a great picture. Pros; Easy set-set, excellent picture. I did not have to readjust the factory settings, straight out of the box and turn on. Great colour, contrast and sound. WiFi set-up also very easy. Cons; The only disappointment is the remote. It is not user friendly to people with large fingers, the buttons are too close and poorly designed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this TV received as a gift for our 50th Anniv It was a total surprise and didn't even know we needed it, but now wouldn't trade it for anything. The color and clarity is a huge improvement over our previous one.
