Rated 4 out of 5 by from bargain telly with a great picture We bought this tv after seeing the great reviews and we're delighted we did. The picture and sound are brilliant and the usb port makes it dead easy to watch video files from a hard drive or usb stick.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great picture, disappointing sound quality. After about a year the sound occasionally became distorted. It's still under warranty, but I plan to leave it and fit separate speakers. Apart from that, a good value-for-money set with an excellent picture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The TV is simple to operate and updates are easy. I am really pleased with this television, the quality is great and it is a pleasure to watch it. The repair service is fantastic.I would always go for another L. G. product in future as i cannot fault their product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic TV This TV is beyond expectations for the price - the picture quality is very good, as is the sound quality. Also a very stylish looking TV. The only con's I would say is the TV is quite a lot thicker than the LED version, but I generally prefer the picture quality of an LCD. The screen also has a very thin extended glass layer at the front, so when looking straight on this gives the impression the screen is paper thin! Although this TV was good value compared to others in a similar range, you can't help but feel slightly cheated when you see 3D Smart TV's for not too much more in sales!!
