What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This was the first smart TV that I bought. It really doesn't appear very "smart" to me. It also is 3D which I have never used. The colors are vivid. Overall, a run of the mill TV. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great deal and Great TV I bought this LG TV about a year ago, as an introduction to LG Products, I am extremely pleased. So much so that we purchased 2 more major appliances by LG since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Picture We purchased this after reading several online reviews. Picture: WOW! We love the clarity and smooth transitions on live sports, 3D, and BR disks. Best TV we have ever owned. Most highly recommend! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Functions & Picture Quality I've had this tv over a year now and it's still awesome. I do wish there were an option for hdmi picture & picture, but I don't know if any tvs have that option. I'm happy every time I turn on my tv with my investment. The tv itself does run a bit hot sometimes though. Other than that there have been no issues and I think it will still work great for more years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV for Every Day Use! Bought this TV in 2014 and purchased a 5 Year warranty only because of all the new Technology in it. So far, it is awesome and not one complaint yet other than WebOS 2.0! For the other people who complain about WiFi issues and other things, get real. Use hard wire connection. I never had a problem with it and never will. 3D is great for being passive and the 4K is really impressive, I use the 4K a lot with my Panasonic GH4, FZ-1000, and Go Pro Hero4 Black Edition and put them on the TV and you can tell the difference, Way better than 1080p OLED (some people said the 1080p OLED looked better than 4K, Not a Chance). I Might be buying the 4K OLED now...
