What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Know Fault. Stay Clear!! I was initially impressed with the bang for buck this TV at one time represented. Picture quality was amazing, looks are still amazing and brilliant sound all coupled together to make me feel that I had made a very smart purchase. However, in about 3 years I am stuck with 2 thin lines running vertically from top to bottom down the right hand side of the picture. There is also a 3rd one that comes and goes just left of the centre. I wouldn't mind so much but when I researched this on Google I find out that this is a known fault with this TV. For a company that rakes in loads of cash from selling their products to start using cheap internal components and poor cold solder joints is ridiculous. I know I am out of warranty but to discover that this is a known issue and I the consumer have to foot the bill for a repair is terrible. I'm a father of 3 and unemployed and I am sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for this TV to kick the bucket just as Christmas arrives. Life is clearly NOT Good! 14 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great TV!! I bought this great tv 5 yrs ago and even today watching anything is just pleasure. It was best tv I ever had and next now i want to change for another plasma tv from LG :) 24 April 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by This product is very unreliable Had this tv 3 years now and twice it has broken down first time at 3 month old repaired under shop warranty this time the thing is going in the bin buffer board has blown wish I had bought a repreble brand tv as it cost the price of one also suffers from screen burn had a CBbc logo since week1 my advice would be avoid 20 December 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by An expensive piece of sh***t At an extagering price tag of £850 you would expect this TV will last you for a good few years, well you will be very disappointed if you expect so. This model of LG TV is notoriously known to thousdands of consumers to have big problem with its supply power board which has used the cheapest possible capacitors and the result is that every 18 months or so your very expensive TV will go on the blink and will cost your around £250 and a lot of hustle to get fixed. I would stay away from anything made by LG for the rest of my life. 27 July 2013
