What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Screen failed Screen failed only 2 years old

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faulty within 2 years This TV has failed within 2 years. Considering I have seen LG claim their TVs have a life spans up to 100,000 hours I think this TV is probably best avoided. The TV produces sounds but the screen is black. A quick search on the internet and I have seen a large number of people complaining about the same fault within two years Features are pretty good, but you can say that for all smart TVs from all manufacturers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Product We have had the Tv now for 14 months and the screen has failed and is giving of a burning smell. It was manufactured in september 2013 so why is it breaking 16 months later. For a while I have noticed the picture has blurry lines when watching HD channels and have read other people experienced the same issue and they said it is the 100hz processing rate, basically its PANTS. I don't recommend this product look else where.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No Customer Service 1 week before the set was a year old still under warranty the screen failed, the TV was collected by the service centre who then agreed it was not viable to repair and brought the TV set back to us, informing us that LG would send out a letter and we would then have take the TV to retailer we purchased for it to be replaced. During this time 13 days, I phoned three times and could not get a customer advisor rather an overflow employee who would take my details and get someone to phone back never happen I even asked for supervosor to phone never happened to date, such complex procedure to deal with a straight forward problem coupled with NO customer service I would not recommend buying a lg product because the back up service is none existed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clever and easy to use TV Bought myself a TV following a bonus, having bought a HD-ready TV before HDMI cables had been invented, so had never really enjoyed the HD side in that much detail. Bought this TV, and the step up in picture quality, sound quality, and functionality is just miles better than anything I'd envisioned. I love the smart functions that give me Netflix, Lovefilm/AmazonPrime, youtube, and a host of catch-up players from the main channels. The best thing, in truth, was something I thought would be a throwaway item. The Magic Remote really is the most intuitive remote I've got, and it makes the TV a lot more navigable. Really capitalizes on a point-and-click system and helps knit the TV together. My PS3 (and soon PS4) gaming is so much nicer on this TV and I cannot find fault with it. In terms of value for money, I thought it was excellent. I expect to pay for quality, and that's what I got. A really top of the line TV.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best value I could find for the price The tv itself is very good. The remote control is very fiddled, their are too many buttons on it for its size, if you have large fingers it is difficult to use. Disappointed no itv player or channel 4 od. The tv itself is excellent, very good picture and sound. Overall a good buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great features at a very good price pleased with purchase but very unhappy that we have not received our sky movies pass and sky sports day passes. We purchased the product on the 31/03/14 and applied on line as instructed on the 08/04/14. We have not received any communication at all. I have sent an e-mail to on the 07/05/14 but so far have heard nothing. Can you please help in this matter.
