What People Are Saying

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by lg55la740v pros and cons First of all the tv looks a great bit of kit with no front bezel to speak of, just all screen and modern but functional stand. The smart features and 3d are good and the smart remote is great except for sounding quite creaky when being used which makes it feel a bit cheap. The picture when viewing bright content is great and a joy to watch but dark content is a problem at present and i end up with what lools like torches (back light bleed)pointing in from the corners tried lots of settings but cant seem to get rid of the issue going to speak to lg. 11 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent TV - High quality & looks stunning It was a choice between LG & Samsung. What swung it was LG now have the edge looks wise and that they use Passive technology for 3D which is on the whole the better choice (cheaper glasses, less headache potential etc). Quality wise they're at the top with Samsung. The LG Magic Wand remote is absolutely fantastic too, rarely use the full LG remote or SKY remote because of it. To sum up it's a stunning very useable TV! 06 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything about this TV is brilliant. Having replaced my previous LG 47" flat screen TV with this LG 55" LA740V in mid January. I have to date found the features available to use to be a huge advancement for one piece of equipment. No complaints so far! 05 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic 3D Wonderful really a fantastic easy to set up with little if any callobration. Skype would be good as an icon to use in the near future, but far beats the latest Samsung and the HUB trouble had. Will be honourable to the brand now if this is to go by 08 January 2014
