What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprised A little apprehensive at first buying an LG because past experience has not been good, and I was far from impressed with the all round quality of LG products. However, after much research I made the plunge and opted for this TV and was pleasantly surprised. It was my first LED TV and I was quite impressed with the quality of both the TV and its performance. So much so that I went one stage further and purchased another LG TV, but this one still has pride of place in the bedroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good TV but beware! Excellant TV the only down side as with most flat screen is the sound quality, ok so you need a theater system but only seems to have a opitical digital out put which is a bit limiting when you come to chooseing one so beware as only certain systems at the moment have this and most of them cost a fair price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exillent TV I have had this for three weeks now and really love looking at it on or off. the design is just stunning. When you turn it on and watch any HD programs or films all i can say is WOW its just amazing. I just watched avatar on blueray for the first time at the weekend and i was glued to the screen. my eyes were overloaded with bright vivid colurs. I also have a PS3 that i have been playing dead space 2 on this tv no motion blur true crisp image. I also love the netcast menu you can watch bbc iplayer in HD and it looks great.
