What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous simple to operate with stunning detail What can I say that has not been said all ready. Imersive 3d, 4k to take you to a new reality, superb sound for a thin screen, elegant design all this and it has the flexibility to be set up at a detailed level (if you know what you are doing take care) I would recommend this tv to any one and all that have seen it are keen to follow my decision. Biggest question for me was is it worth the money ... most definitely YES.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very, Very Good! Replaced a 42" LCD (LG) screen with some surround with this 55" Curved Beauty. Only slightly wider and a bit deeper given design changes over the years. Easy to set up by attaching the curved base - and very easy setup. You need to spend you time digging deep into the menu's to tweak picture and sound settings - but sound is perfectly fine once adjusted. Unless you are really into it - you can do without a soundbar. 3D is fantastic - overall delighted with it after 4days - looking for excuses to watch movies in 3D. Looks a very neat piece of furniture when off. Only came with 2 pairs of glasses - not 4 - but thats a minor issue - have lots from the cinema!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well worth considering This television Is excellent when viewing in HD and 4K. Watching wild life and natural history programs in HD are fantastic. Sports programs In HD are also great as are action films. The 3D is amazing too albeit that this feature is now out of favour. The 55 inch screen size is such that background items that are out of focus are more apparent and this appears more noticeable to me when watching some1080 programs. Perhaps adjusting the picture settings might reduce this effect. The advanced pictures settings appear very complicated but it is easy to adjust the main parameters such as the contrast etc. The sound is good enough to avoid having a sound bar unless you want to have hifi quality. Watching a football match using the BBC iplayer app was awful as the ball was completely out of focus. The web browser is easy to use as are the various apps. However I will stick to my iPad and Sky box for web browsing and catch up tv. Overall I would certainly recommend this tv particularly if you have access to HD stations. I have only had this television for a short period and I am still getting to grips with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tv This is my 3rd LG TV, only had TV a week, at the time of writing this review, TV was easy to setup and didn't need the user manual.Managed to download loads of 4K Demos which really showed off the TVs capability, blown away with the quality of the picture. I only had one problem which was caused by messing with the picture settings, we turned the sharpness up to high, and it caused people on screen to have silver glittering hair, sorted by turning sharpness back down again. HD Channels on virgin box are better than expected. Ordinary channels are good quality as well. I didn't want a curved screen, thought it was just a gimmick until I went to Currys to view the screen, somehow the curved screen seems to give the picture more depth.overall very pleased with the TV wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Just a word of warning, The Currys salesman gave us a month free with Knowhow, this is a bit of a con, ( Knowhow provides the after-sales support services) after what Ive read on line, don't bother, say no thanks. They want you to take out a direct debit for payment each month. Knowhow has a bad name.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from seting I must say this is not the easiest tv to setup, there is not a very Comprehensive users manual, even to download of the internet. It was trial and error and I still am trying to Figure out how to down load some items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great looking tv A great TV but like all modern TVS suffer from poor sound quality you do need a sound bar to get the best from it but great picture quality and magic remote is also great to use.
