What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from poor web use because of no app upgrade No memory to allow for update of the flash product that is used by many web applications , which then fail using the tv internet. Great features of adding other connections to use the video portion of the screen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Three years; great TV Three years of use and I am still impressed with the picture quality and features built into this HDTV. I am going to buy another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is worth the money I purchased this television without being fully aware of all the features that it had. It was well worth every penny that was spent. From the WiFi ready to the preinstalled apps, it was a great buy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart & Easy.... love it Once you go smart tv you never go back... love everything about my tv except the premium preinstalled apps are slow & not very efficient (you tube, Netflix, etc... pretty sure that is not issue with product, rather the software)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This TV is really SMART! This is one of the finest, clearest, and really sharp flat screen TVs I have seen in stores or in friend's homes. I love all the features that are user friendly for the "older generation". Also, all the apps that are available with this TV. I have recommended this TV to others, and my daughter bought one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart TVs can make you feel stupid ...but spend a little time with the remote, surfing though the many option.. and they become familiar, and really useful. This is an excellent television... and window to all kinds of other stuff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality is top notch with LG! We have owned this product since 9/2011 and have not experienced anything but satisfaction with this TV. The clarity is excellent, along with all of the other features. We purchased this after owning a larger LG LED TV, and will continue to be LG owners! Highly recommend this product!
