Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value and more features than I expected! Being a big film fanatic, my next purchase had to be 3D and I have always trusted LG to deliver(my last 2 were LG). I was blown away by the 3D and the features on top have been great, Smart Tv is great and I can safely say that my TV is now my Media hub(it was my xbox) streaming Lovefilm and youtube and many others. And after finding the LG phone App, I now use my Iphone as a mouse, keyboard and remote for when surfing the Web(I swore I would not surf on a TV!) I would have paid twice as much as I did after seeing how good this tv is, something I don't think I have ever said about anything for many years. My friends who have seen it want it and some have even bought it within weeks! It will always be LG for me. Keep it up guys!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't get it Simple TV doesn't work after 3 years. the board goes on it so it is black for 1 hour until it warms up. Waster of money.
