I have just purchased this 55", LED Smart TV. It has got a very nice picture, but very disappointed with features where I am trying to connect my External hard drive and this High tech telly does not recognises the my NTFS system that my MAC is using, also does not play *.MKV files which is for 3D movies. I bought a home cinema system with a blue-ray player so I have got the sound ready, the screen as well it just does not play my movies from my hard drive. I am very disappointed with this product. As I never had a high tech telly which I was meant to buy I did not know what to watch out for when purchasing this TV, now I have got everything together and it is not working :((

Great TV at a super price
I narrowed the choice down to a 40/42" Sony, Panasonic, Samsung and LG, read lots of independent reviews. The Sony usually came top with LG second in the technical reviws, but £1200 compared to £700 made the LG the best value for money, and I have not been disappointed with my choice.
Compared to many TVs on the market the "frameless" design is superb, so it doesn't seem so big as other TVs with a similar sized screen.
It can take a while to set up the TV for best colours, there is a wizard that can be used.
The sound from the TV is adequate for many programmes, but I will get a soundbar or 5.1 system soon, it would be nice if there was an integrated unit that could fit on the stand.

Love it but........
Really think it's a brilliant machine, just a bit disappointed that I can't seen to download Flash to watch clips and "catchup" so this seems like a really big waste that isn't mentioned very much.

Good freebies but needs more apps
It's one of the best 3D TV in this price range. LG improved its menu navigation system (in old models it was very annoying). It gives you a lot of freebies and this famous magic remote. Altough if you buy Samsung you can use your tablet instead.
Overall excellent TV for this price range, but needs more apps (if you compare it to Samsung store).
