What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality is great A great TV with superb picture quality. 3D option is fantastic. Sound quality could be improved as volume needs to be up quite high to get a decent level but all in all a great tv.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Quality & Great Value This is the 1st LG Tv I have purchased and I am not disappointed. The feature set for the price is fantastic and the picture clarity in both 2d & 3d is fantastic. The support for playback via USB is excellent and something that has been frustrating in the past. All formats I have tried have worked so far. If you are looking for something that delivers without breaking the bank then this is well worth a shot. Add a 3d smart dvd player and you are right up to date technology wise

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good looking tv This tv has great picture quality, easy to set up and good connectivity. Only slight downside is sound quality is not as good as expected but could be fixed with surround sound. I am still extremely happy with my lovely new tv.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3D surprise ! When I ordered the tv I didn't realise that it was infact SMART 3D. Although not as good as real cinema 3D, makes watching standard tv more interesting......bring back BAYWATCH! As for the tv itself, great picture and sound quality. A great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value passive 3DTV I've been watching everything on my fantastic 37" Toshiba HDTV for the past few years sadly I came home to my wife sheepishly telling me she may have broken it! (turns out it was an unavoidable chip failure). Rather than talk to me or read a book the wife insisted we buy a new TV again straight away! I'm so glad she did! I thought my Tosh had a great picture this LG is totally amazing! the depth of colours and clarity of the picture on standard HD through sky is phanominal the picture set up wizard is easy to use and the results are top drawer. I've not got any 3D movies yet but the TV converts a standard 2D picture into 3D excellently, it gives great depth to the picture and a little pop. I can't wait for my 3D movies to arrive to get the proper effect. Gaming on the Xbox is great and I haven't noticed any ghosting on the 3D at normal viewing angles. The sound quality is good, not great but its more than ok for normal TV viewing its clear with no distortion infill VERY loud. Overall this 3DTV is excellent value for money and with 7 pairs of passive glasses included everyone can watch in 3D (and no syncing issues)
