What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall OK but has some really annoying issues When I gave it 4 stars for quality I am talking about the appearance and physical feel of the TV itself. It is nice and neat, and the level of features included in the price are ok, HOWEVER, the really annoying things that no one has commented on the previous reviews I have read are: 1. During use of smart TV features such as Netfilx or Amazon Prime you cannot adjust the settings on the TV. 2. Most films unless filmed in 1080P cannot be viewed full screen, they always have black bars. 3. There is a massive volume inconsistency between Terestrial TV (BBC One etc.) and Netflix & Amazon Prime (switch from say Netfilx to BBC One and you will get deafened without changing the volume!!) 4. Also if you are coming from a TV without HD you will find films loose there atmosphere and everything looks over CGI`d. Although have been told you get over that. I have said I would recommend it, that is purely based on the fact that there is not a box to tick for maybe (as I feel that TV`s are such a personal taste thing)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is easy to set up and use. We have definitely chosen a brilliant product which is so easy to set up. The picture quality is excellent and the sound is very clear with the choice of having it set in different modes depending on the programme you are watching. This includes Cinema, Sport and Music. The SMART TV section is east to navigate with some breath-taking facilities such as; 3D ready programmes, apps and Skype facilities.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great picture with good smart features This TV has a great picture which maybe a little too good on some programs as makeup and costumes look false due to the detail and can distract from the program. When you get used to it though other Tv's look blurred and do not compare. The 3D programs are very good with the supplied glasses and programs are easy to watch and cinema quality. The only drawback on the picture is the standard setting for picture adjustment as none of them I found suitable and then to alter the settings you have to have a degree in what adjustment does what, but it does have a picture wizard feature which helped but didn’t quite get to what I wanted so this took some time and I'm still playing with the picture adjustment a little. The kids love the 2 player game glasses for their xbox meaning two players have view of the full screen instead of split screen which is a clever feature. The smart features are adequate and quick and easy to use but nothing different from other manufacturers so this is used for catch up or film rental. I haven’t tried playback from USB or the satellite tuner which it appears to have but the streaming from tablets works fine through my router. The other drawback is the sound … I think it is poor when compared to the previous Samsung I had…. I would recommend this product to anybody who is on the lookout… I did have a Samsung before this which kept breaking and in the end only lasted 2 years so I bought this LG one form John Lewis and got the inclusive 5 year warranty….

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic picture quality The TV has fantastic picture quality. It was so easy to set up and simple to use all the features, including the SMART technology. The remote can be set up to work all your add ons such as DVD and SKY.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous simplistic design and great value! PROS: One of most gorgeous simplistic design. Extremely thin bezel and very well designed stand.Great picture quality. Produces more realistic pictures when compared to a similar class Samsung panel. Excell smart TV interface, practical connectivity options and nicely designed remote. The best 3D experienced on tele till date. Regular firmware updates pushed online. Support a wide range of video formats including Divx and MKV. CONS: Average audio (Would not blame considering the thin bezel & that additional sound bar compensates more than enough). Smart TV apps take a bit longer to launch. This is very evident while launching and using youtube(on a 150Mbps optic fibre connection). Missing integrated web cam would have been an excellent feature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for money The only thing that let's this unit down is the poor sound quality it needs better speakers
