What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TV Size I have a larger model and have been very happy with the TV. Good Picture
Date published: 2017-09-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought it as a computer monitor. I bought this as a cheaper option for a larger computer monitor. I was told by the sales assistant that it probably wouldn't suffice if I was a gamer, which I am not. The other thing she said was the writing wouldn't be as clear as a 1080p monitor. Because it is large for a monitor I didn't find it to be an issue and got used to it quickly. I have watched streamed video and YouTube just to see how the TV performed and it is great. I am not sure about any other capabilities I have not yet discovered because I basically just plugged in the HDMI cord and it worked perfectly except for a irritating voice telling me everything the monitor was doing. You can turn it off in the initial set up. It is called Voice assist or something like that. I couldn't find how to turn it off in the manual and ended up here. Thought I would do a review while I was at it. It's only been a few days but I am loving it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So-So Nice picture and sound, mediocre set-up. Had do call tech support to turn of obnoxious, unneeded voice when changing a setting. Every so often I get a loud noise, the picture and sound go blank and then imediatately restores itself. Very annoying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New - Just set it up We'll see. Just set it up but have another LG TV that we love so I expect it to be great. Set up instructions need more info to help you get to the right cable/antenna setting. It seemed to me logically that Cable TV would be right but it wasnt. Had to call customer service to find out which setting to use. You need to define exactly what setting match up to the TV cable, Direct TV, Dish, etc. setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my tv The tv quality is great. The only problem is the tv stand holders, they look very fragile to hold tv. In the end, I purchased a standalone tv stand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Crisp, clear picture I've only had this TV for a few days but I'm impressed with the bright, clear, crisp picture and good audio quality. Setup was fairly easy but mainly because of prior experience with installing/connecting new devices, etc. One area of difficulty was where the HDMI and av connectors are situated...they're in an awkward spot. It would be much easier to connect and access if they were on the back or side, instead of underneath the TV. While I'm pleased with the TV, the same cannot be said for the documentation that came with it. The quick setup instructions were sorely lacking in detail, with poorly drawn illustrations and unclear images and wording.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent picture but enclosed manual sucks Great picture and sound, but I cannot find in the User Guide where to adjust/turn off that obnoxious voice that says "Power ON/Power OFF", or tells me the volume level when I change it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brought this TV a few days ago. It was easy to set up. Only thing we don't like is the female voice that comes on when you turn the sound volume up or down or if you turn the TV on or off or if you do the menu for settings. Kind of annoying. Can't figure a way to turn it off.

How do I change the resolution from 480i to 720p

Asked by: Redgirl
We appreciate your interest in this television. The INFO BAR on the screen is designed to provide information relating to the incoming signal or broadcast. This information will have no bearing on the image displayed on the screen itself. As such, if your external device shows operations at 480i, then that is what will show in this INFO BAR. Regardless, the TV is automatically upconverting the signal to the full 720p resolution. This is all normal operation. If there are additional questions about this matter, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

I am strongly considering buying this tv, but it might occasionally be used for local broadcasts. Will this tv receive local antennae broadcasts?
