What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Great TV" I have this particular TV in Our bedroom and it has been perfect. Love everything about it. This has been completely a wonderful TV and is used almost every Day. We watch a lot of Hulu and Netflix movies with this TV. I own another LG 55" in my Living room and have just upgraded it to a LG 65UF7700 5K Ultra HD. I have always owned LG Smart TV's.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Unit with Less than Perfect Networking Almost a great product. The picture is clear, crisp, but a bit too bright (even in Cinema mode). Biggest issue is networking performance and I'm guessing it may be tied to a slow processor/chip on board the TV. Lots of nice features. Access to NetFlix, Amazon, but development of new apps appears to be a bit slow to adopt. Biggest disappointment was in the Magic Controller which just doesn't appear to work anymore except for the on-off switch. I do recommend if you can get a good price like we did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have enjoyed this TV Great TV, Good picture. The only problem I have had with this TV is the smart feature. Flash player can't be updated therefore some of the websites cannot be used. Still attaching a computer for some of the "smart" capabilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE the Smart TV Features!!!!! This is the best tv that I've ever owned! The setup was incredibly easy, and the tv itself is strudy but light. The picture is crisp and clear; great picture quality! The sound quality is great, but can get a bit fuzzy as the volume is turned way up. The features on this television are AMAZING! I use the Smart TV features every day. Netflix, Amazon Video, web browser, Facebook, Weather, Picasa, and SO much more! The tv is of such great quality, and the features are so comprehensive, that I don't even have a need for my laptop or stereo in the living room anymore. I can't say enough good things about this tv!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 42LV5400 is GREAT Excellent product - only have one problem - a pixel shows thru black background, but is not bothersome. Another feature that would be good is to allow more picture size options when viewing movies via usb. Other than those two, you can't beat the price and quality.
