What People Are Saying

Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by not very smart... Very annoyed that all the smart apps apart from iPlayer no longer work as apparently the transmission code changed and there is no software update available. Good picture, and if it was still smart I would be delighted with it. 01 December 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by The HDMI connections fail This was a great TV - but three years later almost to the dot this TV failed us - other TVs have a better life span than this and the failure of a key component in this equipment is unacceptable. This was not a high usage TV so having it fail like this was a sad surprise - no support was offered to replace the failed item other than 'go to Curry's' and ask them. So first one needs to pay out a diagnosis charge and then pay for the repair - useless. If you check the web you will see that this is a known issue now and same problem has hit many others. Last time I buy an LG product. 24 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great spec for techs Using the LAN port I've managed to watch my entire external cloud network via the LG 790. No need for wasting DVDs or Netflix. Cracking ratio, well presented. 08 January 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not very reliable You should be aware that this product may not last you even two years. Very unreliable and not value for money if you have to replace within two years. 28 December 2012
