What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not everything I expected As a TV, its good .. picture is fine, sound OK although sometimes speech is hard to decipher even after trying all adjustments. Where it lets itself down is the "SMART" part ... it does not act like a computer at all. The internet can be hard to connect, especially if you have to go through a Wifi portal (as in some condo blocks), it refuses to set the time automatically, but when u set manually, any power outages over a few minutes causes the clock to lose time (so recordings fail). The remote is not very ergonomic, and when u connect a mouse to the USB, to input text via the screen, one click often generates repeat characters. Having tried the Smart share, this is incredibly slow, You tube often drops out, and generally the whole processing speed seems slow.... of course , this can be blamed on slow internet too, but I wonder. So, in summary, as a TV, its fine, but do not expect anything much from the "Smart" bits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from failed within 2 years we have had LG TV's for many years and the picture quality has rivalled much more expensive sets and value for money cannot be doubted. this set however did not even last 2 years before the screen went black and that was the set on the way to the rubbish tip. we have since brought another set, but NOT LG. Shame, because even the SKY engineer was singing the praises of LG sets and the quality of picture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to set up, good picture, good sound. Bought this a while back to replace my broken LG. Simple to set up. Internet set up required a wireless connector on this model but was OK. Controlling the internet options is much easier with the downloaded mobile app. Would recommend that the extra for the built in wireless should be considered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not altogether without its problems This was my first Smart TV and I was delighted with it when I switched it on. The picture quality was amazing. I bought a sound bar to go with the TV because I have difficulties distinguishing words on television and the sound bar gave a better range. I managed to stream media from my PC to the TV over my Wi-Fi using Plex media without too much trouble and everything worked great until the first round of updates. Soon after the updates the interactive part of the TV started freezing and the only way to get back to the TV was to switch off and switch on again. I sent the TV back for replacement and lo and behold the replacement has started to do exactly the same thing after the updates. Whether or not LG will fix this in a future update I have no idea. I hope they do because I rather like the TV. It has nice clean lines and the design is very pleasing. To summarise, It's a great TV with excellent picture quality but glitchy software.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accurate and informative We deliberated for a long while over which brand to choose and this product ticks all the boxes. Glad we came to this collective decision. We are from the definitely t more mature purchaser range but we encountered no problems , easy to set up and use. A SUCCESS
