What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great small tv for kitchen Needed a small tv for kitchen and this was the only 28 inch smart tv that I could find. I haven’t had a LG before so wasn’t sure whether picture would be as good as my preferred brand. I have to say that the picture is actually very good and set to movie mode required no tweaking of the settings at all (unlike my other tv from my usual brand which required quite a lot of adjustments) . Has both Netflix and Amazon streaming apps plus iPlayer. Sadly doesn’t support itv or 5 player. Quite expensive considering it’s size but I needed the smart function. I’m very happy with it and would recommend. I have given it 5 stars for picture quality but shouldn’t be compared to high end tv where picture quality will obviously be better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great reception Recently bought this TV from having an "antique TV" vast improvement. Reception really good for us as we live in a "black spot" for cover. Our rooms are small so this 28" size is perfectly adequate. There are so many featured built in we haven't seen all of them yet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not best buy Firstly the service of Tesco Direct was excellent right upto collection in store , if only the TV was the same . It''s a good looking TV , and reasonably priced . The smart side was quite confusing for someone who was new to it and it didn't have itv player or other players. The real problem was that the screen went black for about 5/6 seconds everytime you changed channel which became annoying . This set went back and I went back to a Samsung set without smart TV . l would not recommend this set for the above reasons.
