What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent quality I bought this TV in 2009 and have never had any problems with it this has been a great TV for all these years been very happy with this TV I'm just about to upgrade to a smart TV

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality. Worse customer service. TV lasted less than 2 years due to a common fault which has significant online coverage. However LG refuse to acknowledge it. So, £700 down the drain. Customer service terrible. No escalation route - or at least none that gets a response. Internal 'voice of the customer' a waste of time. First and last LG purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor after sales care I am very disappointed with your company. I bought this 51 inches full HD tv set from your company. It did not even last 15 months and is now broken. I have written numerous emails requesting you to do something for me to repair it as it is supposedly still under warrantee but to no availe. I have sent you all the details you needed but i have not had any response from you yet. The only response i had from you was a few basic questions which i answered but have not yet heard anything from yourselves as yet. I know according to my consumer rights that if any product bought that is still under warrantee should be repaired by the manufacturer, should by law be looked into and you are oblidged by law to replace or repair the tv. As i have no other tv i am forced to look at buying a new one as i have no other option at present. Please do rest assure that i will be telling who ever i know about the shoddy customer care and poor after sales care you give.
