Really good TV for the price, 3D is really good but you don't get any glasses which are not cheap, you need a wired connection for the internet to work on it as the dongle is no good at all, it always buffers. I found that because the connections are all on the left hand side of the TV I had to buy longer cables as my previous model had its connections on the right. I am now looking at getting a sound bar as the sound is not bad but lacks depth given that the TV is slim.

Could be better...
The picture and sound quality are fairly good, and the 3D display works, but the tv software glitches out sometimes when you switch back to normal view, giving a very low quality picture. I also found the remote control awkward to use, and so purchased the magic remote (AN MR400), which I find little more than useless. Very clunky, especially when used in conjunction with a sky box, so am still using 2 remotes! While I'm on the subject of clunky, the smart tv app menu is dreadful, often crashes and is awfully slow. Quality of picture on Netflix is low, and although it could be argued that this is down to my internet, I seem to have better picture quality running Netflix etc off my ps3. Which leads me right onto ... gaming on the lg tv. While the picture is good, and sound is crisp the surround function leaves a lot to be desired, and the actual input interface on the tv side sometimes doesn't pick up the ps3, which is HDMI fed. Basically you have to have another input running before you can turn the ps3 on and expect the tv to detect it. If you don't do this, the tv will say no signal and try and offer you input list or it will try and go to freeview, which is annoying. So, overall, would I recommend? well, yes.. If you like getting wound up every so often at the inanimate 50in oblong that seems to be pointing at your wallet and laughing mercilessly as you fritter money away trying to make the most of a bad buy. Other than that, shop around, even if its price is right, the LG smart-tv fails in many of its smart features.
