What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Painfully slow internet/ youtube There are some good points: Good picture and great sound. The downside is the smart element. I have superfast fibre with 38mbps speed. Yet the internet and youtube elements on the TV are agonizingly slow. LG blame ISP which is not correct as I have had different ISPs and routers etc. For the price, I expected better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dreadful streaming and buffering I bought this TV at Christmas. The quality of picture is good but the streaming on the internet, especially YouTube (not the app, which is awful) is dreadful. Constantly buffers. I use internet YouTube frequently as I cycle on my turbo trainer in front of it to work out - one of the main reasons I bought the TV. The apps are just fiddly and Now TV is never able to take you back to the last place you left off. It always reports an error so you have to start from the beginning again and fast forward (which defeats the object really). I am fed up with it. I would not recommend the TV to anyone. (Of course, LG's response will be that my connection is slow but my laptop, by way of example, is fine.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Trouble free viewing. Buy one recommeneded. This unit has a good build quality and is full of features to play with especially for media mad teenagers. I got this tv at the same time my best friend bought a top of the range Samsung costing twice as much and the LG will hold its own against everything the Samsung can do and the interactivity on this LG is better than the Samsung.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Smart TV but SMART isn't what hoped for! The TV is very nice looking and comes with all the glasses you need to make use of it's 3D and dual play functions (Dual play has given a whole new lease of life to split screen gaming on my X-Box!). It has built in wireless connectivity which was simple to connect to and has a USB recording facility which is very neat, if like me you don't want lots of boxes and wires in your lounge (having said that you can only record the channel you are on). As a negative we purchased this TV as we wanted to use the smart technology in it. The Smart technology has been simple to set up and use, unfortunately, apps such as e4 player are not available in LG's own apps markets and whilst these facilities can be reached through the TV's internet capability they are too clunky and slow thus making what should be an elegant feature quite redundant and I have had to turn to my X-Box to make these features work (so more wires and the clean lounge ideal has been lost). All in all though it is a very impressive piece of kit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I would expect I spent the best part of £700 on this 3D smart tv and after on a few weeks I had to take it back as it kept freezing and turning itself off. After speaking to the store they agreed to exchange it for a new one, now imagine my frustration when my second tv starts to do exactly the same. Freezes, turns itself off and is generally very slow at times.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Product is OK it works - that is it Not pleased with the free offer when we purchased of a free three month trial to Sky films, it turns out it was for only 3 weeks after which time it was blocked. A misrepresentation if ever there was one but not worth the hassle. Just a bit of client care and delivering promises would have been good.
