I bought this TV to replace a Samsung lcd TV that I was never really happy with, the Samsung had horrific black smear and after several years of putting up with it I decided to buy a new one. I did consider Sony and Panasonic but I was drawn to the LG and I wanted to dabble in the 3rd dimension! The price was right so I took the plunge.
I was worried about several known issues, one being poor back lighting (banding and DSE) also the search light effect from screen corners that can plague edge lit led screens and I have to say, although there is some slight banding and DSE, I was surprised that it was know where near as bad as I thought.. No search light type back light bleed what so ever, in fact, I struggle to notice any serious back light issues.
The TV itself is so sexy and sleek looking and the stand is a work of art. Being edge lit led it's also very thin.
The smart functions are quite good although you have to sort through the rubbish, I use YouTube, Netflix and weather mainly but you also have demand 5 and several other well known streaming apps, sadly, no ITV player or 4OD, a good speedy internet connection is recommended as some of the apps can splutter a bit, my connection is slow so I do struggle with Iplayer and demand 5 but Netflix and YouTube work well.
The only real downside is the sound quality but that's to be expected from a TV this thin.

Nice all round tv.
Nice quality picture, ample size screen for our livingroom, sound is also good. When ordered we thought that the magic wand came with, it but it doesn't.

Excellent tv for money !
Looked at a lot of tvs and this mixed price , quality and features so went for it , our last tv was an LG and never had any issues with it in 6 years . Only downside is the sound not as good as the last tv , but there is LOTS of features on this tv and you can set it up to how you want it .
good tv for the money and a lot lighter ! and thinner
