What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is the best in its class This Hd Tv has the clearest picture I have ever see. The sound is like no other. The programming menus are practical and user friendly. I work with my small business and recommend the product when people ask me what kind of tv I have. I really like this product and am currently planning in the near future of purchasing another Lg tv

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very reliable quality TV We've had this TV for about 3 and 1/2 years. We've moved 3 times and this TV has been just as good as the day we bought it. The sound is still very good but I did buy an LG soundbar to help with that during movies/sports. The picture is still very good and there are no signs of fading, losing edges, etc We love this TV and hope it lasts for many years to come.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty slick TV I don't have anything bad to say, its a great TV I wish the Model had the Ethernet port or a way to add it but other than that its a great TV. or and if the there was a way to make the power indicator(cylon like) LED to work around the whole frame that would be nice, (adjustable of course)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My prized posession My friends and I love this TV. I couldn't be happier. It is the perfect size with the perfect picture. Loved it so much that I bought an LG blue-ray to go with it. Simply awesome!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE QUALITY I bought this unit as it was on clearance. It seemed like a good deal. Within a few months it would stop responding to remote control commands. At the same time, the side push buttons would not work either. I would have to unplug the unit to get it to work again. The picture quality has been so-so depending on the input. I would avoid LG products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from it's ok The tv itself has a nice picture to it, easy to see from side angles. My only problem is getting my surround sound system working with it, To this day, I am still on tv speakers,, any ideas without paying for getting it working right?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 47lh40 I've owned the TV for almost a year now and it seems to be working great. I like to watch sports, basketball, football and baseball.The Tv does an excellent job of showing the games. I would highly reccommend it to everyone.
