What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picture is fantastic!! My husband & I bought this a few months ago & we are very happy with our new tv

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The "2017" model is bad - earlier version is good I bought a 32LJ500B over a year ago and it has been great. I decided to buy another one for a different room, only to discover it was discontinued and replaced by a newer "2017" model. The menu system has changed; that's OK. The new voice prompts were annoying but easy to turn off. A few buttons on the remote control were changed; that's annoying but I can live with that. The real problem is that the sound quality is just awful. Every few minutes the sound drops briefly. It does this on all channels, regardless of signal strength. You'd think that having the audio cut out for a quarter second (or less) wouldn't be that bad, but it's really annoying. Unfortunately, I recycled the box the day I bought it figuring that it's going to be just as good as the first one I bought, so now with no box I'm not sure I can return it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from annoying voice over The picture is clear, but every time you put it on, there is a big, very loud announcement that it is on, same when you change the volume, and turn it off. It also states numbers, and measurements when you turn it on. It would be nice to eliminate this feature, and is stopping me from buying another set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picture is Crisp and Beautiful We haven't actually used it yet. We've just hooked it up getting it ready to have our satellite dish installed. It was our housewarming gift to ourselves for our new home. It installed nicely and we had no problems getting it ready to go. If you'd like me to do another review, with pictures, after we've moved in and had a chance to actually use it, let me know.

Just bought this TV - 32LJ500B. Spec sheet says will take both 110v & 240v 50-60 hz, however behind the TV, I only see 110v 60 hz. Can this TV actually run on 220v 50hz? This is important as it is the only reason I bought the LG so I can use it overseas

Asked by: geeged
Hi geeged. Please accept our apologies, but the Power Supply specifications for the LG HD 720p LED TV - 32" Class (31.5" Diag), Model # 32LJ500B are AC 120 V ~ 60 Hz as you have on the back of the TV. It will not work on 220~240 V, but the TV also has three built-in tuners, an ATSC tuner, an NTSC tuner and a QAM tuner and none of these tuners are compatible with the Television Broadcast Systems used abroad so it will not work overseas...^IFV
