What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great picture! I really like the picture of this TV set even though at times you can notice some minor issues with fast paced sports like football. The reason I don't give it 5 stars is because it doesn't connect seamlessly with my LG sound bar. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good TV but lack apps I have the 49" version of this TV. It's an ok TV in my opinion. The panel continually has LED bleed through on the right hand side of the panel which even resetting didn't fix. The TV also lacks several apps which you can easily get with LG's competitors. Namely, SlingTV, which was announced to be coming to WebOS TV's back in January 2015. We still don't have the Sling app and it's now January 2016. They did just add Google Play video though to the TV but sorely lacking in other areas with apps.I do not recommend this TV if you are every thinking about cutting cable. I'm in the process now of cutting cable and I'm going to have to purchase a Roku 4 in order to cut cable. Point of buying this TV was to avoid that but I didn't do my research first. Web browser is ok but kind of sluggish and there is no remote with a qwerty keyboard built in so browsing can be a little difficult. Panel is very clear though when displaying or playing 2160p content. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4K s Best 4K Ultra HD is the way to go. Pair that with the Web OS, can't go wrong. Apps update often to keep up with technology unlike my older smart TV's.
