    The LB700 is another attractive and well made TV from LG, with plenty of great features

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 56 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pleased with my purchase Purchased this tv mid October, brilliant picture and loads in the package. 28 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow ! what a great TV Picture quality is superb on HD and very very good on low. Sound is so good that I've disposed of my soundbar which I had found to be neccessary on my previous TV. The smart aspect of the set is good on WiFi which is wireless.The selection of apps is limited but the www internet is fine. I used Google search and apart from chore of having to target the on screen keyboard from a remote controller, its as good as a laptop. I didn't realise that I could watch 2D pictures upscaled to 3D ( I had the impression that I'd need a 3D transmission or BlueRay 03 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lifes Good! Excellent Telly! I bought this tv after doing a lot of research on the internet & reading the reviews about 3D/smart tv's from numerous manufacturers.The past few tv's I have owned have been Sony, so the look & design of this model was always going to be at the top of the list. I settled on this 42" LG model because it has everything I need in a telly. I just wished I'd bought the 47" equivalent model though as the 42" looks lost in my living room. Picture quality is brilliant, sound quality is surprisingly not bad, considering the small built in speakers. I have a sound bar anyway to improve the sound. The tv was easy to set up (the stand took the most time to sort). Just plug it in & follow the on screen instructions. The magic remote takes a bit of getting used to at first, point & click (a bit like a cordless pc mouse) it even has a built in mic for voice commands. It's also a type of universal remote, I managed to set it up to control my Sony Blue ray player, but I could not set up the remote to control my talk talk 'Huawei' Youview set top box. There is a manufacturer list for the user to select from, but the LG was having none of it, even after numerous attempts!!! Still I would recommend this tv to family & friends. My wife thinks it even looks good turned off. One downside is a lack of Itv & 4 on-demand apps! Also some aspects of the operating system are a bit frustrating. That said this is a very good telly which I got at a fantastic price. 10/10 29 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent introduction to LG I bought this to fit a TV Bed purchased from Bensons, and it (just) fits. The principal reason for purchasing this LG is it was one of the few sets thin enough (at 55mm) to fit the bed (55mm max depth but 55.1 as with this set can be accommodated). I felt like I was taking a bit of a gamble having not owned any LG products before. But I've had a really positive experience here. I think the set software and web os are excellent. The sound, for a tv set, is actually pretty good; note to LG if you could add some extra boost to the EQ or a loudness function that would be great, otherwise it is surprisingly good sounding on its own (though I have hooked it up to a surround system anyway). The magic remote I was skeptical about to start with, but after 10 mins use it is so intuitive I think it is the real future of remote controls. If only LG could make it a learning remote to use with other kit that would be excellent, but top marks here. And to finish... The picture quality is very good. Took a while to get the right balance, and watching with 3D glasses on I find requires settings to be brighter than for non 3D. But upscaling from 2 to 3D works well, native 3D is good, and overall picture quality in SD is good and HD very good. Sufficiently impressed by this experience of LG that I'm going to purchase their LB760V 70 inch for my main set replacement. 21 April 2015
