What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality picture, so so sound The picture quality is excellent, and the 3D is natural (I think it's more natural than those TVs with active glasses). The sound is so so, and I have a sound bar which gives much better sound. However, I cannot have sound from both the TV and the sound bar at the same time. There are times I want to use the TV's speakers and times I want to use the sound bar. I'll need to switch the settings every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Technology at its best I am seventy seven years of age and have witnessed television from its infancy. Over the years I watched a seven inch black and white screen, then twelve inch, twenty one and finally color screens in the sixties. This LG Ultra picture is nothing short of incredible. How can they possibly improve it? If it is time to update, do not hesitate! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
