What People Are Saying

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...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but... Got this TV for more than one year, very sastisfied with the picture quality considering the price. Good support for H265 files, excellent 3D quality. The HD to 4K scaler is excellent, specially for all progressive format (even 720P look very good) Here's the missing features: -Support for WebOS was promised but it's not release -Universal Bluethooth Support: It's available only for LG gear... -Support for FLAC: Most other vendors (including SAMSUNG) support could support do FLAC ! WebOS id sometimes slow to the point that you must turn OFF the TV and's sound as a memory leak...all commands are buffered and fired later on. This problem occur rarely...but annoying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent picture and bang for buck! Had tv for just over month and am very impressed! Picture is amazing. I can connect to my media server and plays all content so can get rid of my WD live! I love the remote even my kids have no problem using. I like being able to show media on my iPhone on the tv! I would recommend and can't wait till there is more 4k content.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best TV I ever bought This TV has everything you'd want in a TV. Has more features than you'll ever use. Picture quality is awesome even from a side view and the 3D feature actually works great! Would recommend for sure if in the market for a higher end TV.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Picture Qulaity Very good quality and features. The up/down buttons on the remote control are somewhat awkward to use. The online LG TV i pad app does not function properly but would make it easier to control the tv functions if it worked properly.
