Rated 3 out of 5 by from pretty good for the price Got this tv for signing up with Telus. It has been pretty great all around, with one minor exception. The volume on the speakers is terrible. We had to pick up a sound bar, and made the mistake of not buying an LG sound bar. Which means that I have to use a second remote, as any linking features are only available with the same brand. Otherwise,a great product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from should have lasted more than a couple years! Worked good at first but failed after two years! Should have operated much longer. Had to buy a new TV. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great TV Until it Goes Black After a year the screen went black. After searching the web this has happened to thousands of people and is a known issue that LG refuses to fix. This seems to happen to everyone right when the warranty runs out. The repair shop estimate was more than the TV cost. I will never buy another LG television again. 42LN5700
