Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value TV The picture quality and 3D quality is great, however the only downside is the sotfware. It is sometimes slow to use the SMART features and takes a while to type in usernames and passwords using the control. Other than that, excellent TV, I would highly reccommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WHAT A STUNNER! This is the second tv by LG that l have owned (the previous having given faithful service for ten years) and am l glad l stuck with the brand. The people in LG's R&D have not been resting on their laurels, for everything about this tv is superb, from the build quality to the room filling sound and vibrant picture display. Speed of operation is fantastic and Internet browsing is a joy. This 3D smart tv has a plethora of features, more than enough to keep any techi happy for a long time to come. l'm once again, a truly happy LG customer. 10/10 LG, well done!
