What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Was pretty nice until after 3 years of ownership every HDMI port failed. Google it and you will find that many other people have had the same problem. TV tuner still works, so at least the OTA can be watched. Can't even find the main board available for sale anywhere. Very disappointing. When did 55" LED panels from a "major" manufacturer become disposable items?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV We have owned this TV for about a year and the quality of the picture is fabulous! It almost looks like a 3D picture but without the glasses. We also bought the LG surround sound and blu ray player so that we have the full movie experience at home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's like being there! Did a lot of research before finally deciding on LG and this model. I tell everyone to go the extra for Wi-Fi. Worth every cent. The picture is crystal clear and the sound is pretty good.
