Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awesome features... but many don't work I purchased this TV September 2012 and was pleased at first. Shortly after I noticed the Youtube app did not stream videos properly. I had a 45Mbps internet connection at the time and all of my other devices worked just fine using the same ethernet jack. I dont need Youtube.. I can live with that. Now it has been over two years and the internet connection across the board is unstable (I now have a 60Mbps internet connection and a new house with an awesome network). All internet based apps are unstable. It seems the internet connection drops after two minutes of use and does not automatically connect (WIRED!). I have done a factory reset, I have set a static IP, I have initialized the apps, I have most recent software, It just wont work. The punch line is it works fine with my local network. I can watch videos from my computer using Smart Share. The hardware works, the software does not. I now have to use my dvd player to stream Netflix :( It seems in this case as time goes on and standards change on the internet these LG apps I have become less and less stable until they wont work at all. I have 5 years experience as a Senor Web Developer, an Information Systems and networking degree, and have troubleshooted this to the best of my abilities... Please help me fix this LG

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Picture failing After about 16 months the picture started to fail, one side of the picture was like a half moon, grey and then blacked out. Called on the extended warranty that we purchased, because it was past the 1 year manufacturers warranty period. The repair shop assigned to us has been giving us the run around for 6 months, still not fixed. I am very disappointed in this TV. Will never buy another LG tv.
