What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Good TV for 4yrs. I just purchased an LG65UF7700 65" 4K Ultra HD 240Hz LED HDTV (4K x 2K) to replace this this 55LV5500 due to vertical lines across 3/4 of the screen along with distorted color on the remainder. I was told by a repair man over the phone to just go buy a new TV, that it would be cheaper than a repair. I own another LG 42" which has been trouble free for 3+yrs. I'm still sticking with LG TV's .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great-----Big-----TV. We enjoy the clear large picture. Ease of use with the remote wand is an excellent feature. Our picture is just as clear whether we are using satellite or antenna, DVD or internet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blows my mind I love everything about this TV - We looked for months before deciding on this TV. We wanted 46" or bigger, 3D, 240hz, LED, HDTV. Although this tv is 120hz, we are seriously happy with it. It came with 6 3d glasses that are big enough to fit over prescription glasses and small enough for my 3 year old to wear. The remote is awesome - it behaves as a "mouse cursor" on a computer screen which isn't overly sensitive to motion nor does it have any "lag"... With the click of a 3D button on the remote, you can change anything you are watching into 3D - pop on your 3D glasses and you're good to go!! Some things are more impressive than others - we watch the thanksgiving parade in 3D; football; movies; and tv shows like "the voice"; we even play some wii games in 3D - so its really a neat feature! The TV is heavy, but its really big so thats expected, but despite its size and weight, its so thin compared to other models we looked at. Being a SmartTV, it has a number apps built in and ready to use!! Setting up internet wasn't hard at all - we just typed in our wireless network information and boom - its always on. We have surround sound system that we use, but the TV sound is fine - I would prefer more bass, but I haven't fiddled with those settings because we have the sound system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture and LG smart tv is the way to go Great looking picture. The wi fi portion of the tv is a great addition. The auto off feature is great for when the tv is left on for to long. This is my first LG product and I am completely satisfied with my purchase. Have had my tv for almost a year and no problems. I just wish they would tell me what the updates are when they come.( bug fixes ext )

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality good price I've had this tv for a while now and could not be more pleases. The price I paid and the picture quality are great. I set it up in a pretty large room and it is the perfect size. I also own a 47 in. LG set up in another room. Very satisfied.
