What People Are Saying

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value tv I bought this for my elderly infirm mother in law who is very pleased with it. The TV looks good and performs well. For the price we paid it's great value. She has this set up in her bedroom for those times when she is less mobile. Her main TV is an older Sony but frankly, although cheaper, I believe the LG to have a better picture and better look to it. My only gripe would be the controller, it has a bit of a cheap feel to it and the keys too close together, particularlly for an elderly arthritic person. 08 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by good value tv Great TV, no problems, I would definitley recommend it. 02 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Clear viewing This product has come up to our expectations on clarity and colour. Also easy to use. 24 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent buy Perfect for me at 42 inches superb picture and good sound. Easy set up running through a Talk Talk box. Only minus point is the widely spaced feet which required a new stand with a limited choice due to the width. 20 January 2016
