What People Are Saying

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 217 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good TV This TV has a nice picture and it works well with a computer using the HDMI. I will probably never use the joystick feature, and it only has two HDMI plugins, plus you need to use the computer screensaver to protect the screen, but this TV has worked well even with displaying documents. Many TVs do not display the letters in a document well when used with a computer, but this one does. The sound is good. This is a really good TV for the price (I got it at a really good price).

Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE I purchased this tv in December of 2014 and I absolutely love it! the picture is so clear and I love the features, people always compliment it when they see it, and ask where I got it June 18, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not a bad product (some issues to resolve) Not a bad product it need an software upgrade thart resolve the communication with LG account service (logining for app. download for example) June 3, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has a beautiful picture My husband and I took a chance on buying this TV that someone brought back to the store. We can't understand why they returned it. It has the greatest picture. It is like you are right in the same room with the people..Also love the sleep feature. We are looking to buy another LG in a larger size for our summer home.. May 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful clear picture This TV has a beautiful clear picture even when watching old TV shows. It is easy to use and has nice sound. It is really lightweight and easy to assemble. May 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LG is the best tv I have bought I have owned a verity of brands over the years and this LG rates at the very top. The only problem is the manual that comes with this set does not go into much detail especially on the remote use . April 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by very good product My wife and I have been very satisfied with our new LG TV. It has a very good picture quality, and is easy on the eyes when watching. It seems to be very reliable. LG continues to send us info on our product which is making it easier to use. April 18, 2015

On a LG 42LB5600, recommended sound bar?

Would like to add a sound bar, had to return the one I bought as the sound bar worked only with the DVD which was connected to the TV (ant) via HDMI cable (and TV to sound bar via opti). Could only get TV sound out if I used a converter, but had to leave the TV sound ON which would cause an echo.

Answer: 
Ended up buying the LG NB2540 sound bar. This works with this TV, sound is so much better as the sound from the TV speakers was muffed. Big improvement.

Answer: 
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this television. Most Sound Bars are compatible with this television, when connecting through the OPTICAL Digital Audio Out jack. Once connected, the INTERNAL TV Speakers should be Deactivated in the SOUND menu, in order for the External Speakers to activate.

Are there any other options for table-top mounting besides the two feet on the left and right sides? My TV table is not that wide. Also, I couldn't find the manual on-line. This is for the LB5600.

Answer: 
You need a stand of at least 91cm (36in), but I would recommend one a bit bigger. In the back you have the option of mounting the TV on a wall, but if you don't want that, maybe you can find a table-top stand that uses the wall mounting facilities of the TV.

I am looking to put this inside a hutch and the width for the legs can only be 36" wide due to some modeling on the bottom edge. All other dimensions fit.

Answer: 
Each leg is 22cm (8.5 in) long. But from your explanation I think you are asking more about the distance between both legs, right? In that case it is 91cm (36in) so I'd say you are too just of space.
