Rated 5 out of 5 by from outstanding purchase I originally purchased this TV, because of a special interest free program and it was also in my price range. I have now owned this TV for 1 year, and we just love it. From its picture quality to all the features that are available to use..Wi-Fi hook up was a breeze. Set up was also very simple and quick to complete. Sound quality could be better, is the only minor complaint I have.. We are so impressed with this set, we purchased another LG. It's the 55LM6400. This because of LED..3D. This set is 2 months old and we are already more than satisfied with LG quality and performance.
