Smart TV that is not so Smart
I purchased this TV (47LM860V) just before the Olympics last year and since then facing following issues and also struggling with LG's poor customer service. #1 Severe performance issues.#2: 3D TV does not work as expected #3: LED Bleeding
My suggestion is instead of buying a smart TV get a standard LED TV of any brand (LG is also a good option) and spend additional £100 for Apple TV (which is better than any integrated smart TV).

Stylish & Elegant, while Intelligent & Efficient
This television has everything: style, picture quality, ease of use and features upon features. Can it be improved? Absolutely! But at this time, it is the best thing on the market. It is the first generation iPad of televisions, people just don't know it.
Style is simple yet elegant and not too flashy, which is unmatched by other similar televisions in the industry.
The picture quality is superb, even though it's been said that the picture quality of the LM960V is better due to the Nano LED technology, but unless the two were side by side, it's wouldn't be noticeable.
The user interface is perhaps the best part about this television. Where other Smart TV's fail, this television excels. It seems quite daunting at first, but soon you'll realize that the wand remote is no different than a mouse for your computer and the home screen is simplified for everyone to understand, no different than a tablet.
I was a little bit upset to find that I couldn't get certain features like Skype, but there were ways around this and it supported Adobe Flash which other alternatives couldn't do. I also found that the operating system would freeze and could only come back to life from turning the device off and on. Unfortunately, the price is slightly higher than the competition, but at least you know you are making a purchase that won't go out of style nor be far surpassed in intelligence any time soon.
The pros surely outweigh the cons, which, hey, they are minor issues and every company has some. I'm just hoping and expecting LG to act on these and create a monster of a system that will dominate the market sometime in the near future.

Stylish TV let down by Smart features
Superb style. Great Picture. Impressive 3D rendering. But! Quite frequently stumbles over tasks and locks up requiring it to be turned off and on again. Live HD TV programmes stutter and blink every so often which looks like some kind of memory issue although those recorded independently on an external recorder play back without problem. Another small glitch is that the Magic remote sometimes refuses to hover over items in menu list. Final indignity is that it cannot run BBC iPlayer. So, this is a real blond bimbo of a television that is skin deep smart and lacks real ability.

Issues with this product
TV great but user guide is too simplistic. Why does the product always default back to AV1 as the source when the antenna was used last? Used to be able to receive the HD signal but now cannot.
