What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fully enjoying this t.v. I would absolutely recommend the purchase of this t.v. I have only owned mine for about a month, but at this point, I am completely happy with the purchase. The picture is great and it was very simple to set up. I have heard that the internal speakers on LG t.v.s are not great, but they do the job just fine. I am planning on hooking up my surround sound system to the t.v. anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best TV We've Ever Owned The review title states exactly how both my husband and myself feel about owning this LG Product. It has the clearest picture of any TV we have ever owned in our 36 years of marriage. The clarity does NOT change from whatever angle you might be viewing either - a definite plus in a large room. We are also extremely pleased with the ease of it's use and navigation between DVD, VCR (Yes, we still own a VCR), etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good TV but HDMI input blew out We love this TV, but just after we bought it, one of the HDMI inputs stopped working. We had a service technician come to the house and swap out the main board, and it's been working great ever since. Great picture, features, easy to use menus, etc. etc. If it weren't discontinued already, I'd advise you to go out and buy it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This TV is perfect for us since we have a large den. Can be viewed easily all over the room and into the kitchen. The Tru Motion feature is great, no problem watching basketball. Really looking forward to seeing football on it though. By purchasing the floor model we really did receive value also as well as quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! I spent months weighing the options, and just couldn't pull the trigger! I wanted a 60+ inch to hang over the fireplace in the great-room of a new house we just built. The jump in price from 50 to 60 is ridicules, and side-by-side the 55" LG looked gorgeous and not much smaller than the 60 or 65. So, I bought it hung it on the wall (watch out its pretty heavy, and I strongly recommend a high quality wall-mount!). I'm looking at it right now, and it looks AWESOME! Fills the wall nicely, the 240Hz picture is great from every angle and all the way from the kitchen (so good...it makes the pretty people look normal!), the auto-adjust works excellent (no needed to re-adjust TV every hour the sunlight changes in the room or you change media type!), and the energy saving feature is a nice option. Perfect TV! Get one! You won't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great HD TV Great picture, great sound, easy connections and it looks great in my room. I purchased this TV as one of three models recommended in my price range. I am very satisfied with the performance and features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super TV This TV has a great picture and is very easy to connect up and to operate the controls. It also has a great over-all look to it. Mine is mounted on the wall and looks good, whether it is on or off. The only problem is that the instructions should tell you to hook up the componet cables before mounting on the wall, as the connection jacks are hard to get to when mounted on the wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Picture Set up is easy. Connections are easy to get to. I like it when when a device is turned on the TV will display a pop up box and ask if you want to switch to that input. HD satellite, Blu-Ray and gaming devices all look great on this set.
