What People Are Saying

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 204 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing !!! "Outstanding Picture Quality" -Life's Good Forever !!! August 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I Am N Luv wth My LG TV! I hv had my Lg tv several months now and its the Bomb! There is nothing negative I can say about this smart tv, I was a diehard Zenith n JVC fan but LG has all of my heart! So much so, that I now hv a LG top loader washing machine that's only a month (maybe) old. I've already told my hubby I need the matching dryer! My guess is my house will soon b a LG House, lol. Great products so far n luv their svc reps that hv come 2 our house 2 do a chk on my nu washer. Getting my LG dryer n a few months, that will matrch my washer, caint wait! August 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by All Around Great Buy Really like the picture quality of this TV. Set up was easy, but I did not connect to Wifi, instead connecting directly to my router. Love the features, the sound, the look and the price! The only downside is the poorly designed remote. It works, but not without having to look at the buttons unlike my Directv remote that you can use with your eyes closed. July 24, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great TV, but cannot get the Wi-Fi to work I received this TV last July for my birthday. It has amazing picture quality and sound. Remote is a little cumbersome, but once you get used to the buttons you need you can use it in your sleep. MY ONLY COMPLAINT --- I have yet been able to get the built-in WiFi to work. I have been able to log into my cable provider through my wifi router and via the tv's browser and find a program that I want to watch. I start the program and it just pauses and will not upload and play. At one point, the TV was next to the wi-fi router and still NO LUCK. I do not want to hardwire the TV into the router .. what's the point of wi-fi, right? Anyway, I am recently moved and I am hoping the new cable provider and a new router will do the trick. Very disappointed in the lack of wi-fi access on the TV .. my only complaint. I want to sign up for Netflix, but not if I cannot stream with the wifi. Any suggestions??? August 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy and Excellent We wanted a bigger television and it had been a while since we purchased one. We had a heavy, state-of-the-current-art LCD television that weighed a ton and wasn't as clear as we wanted. We also had a space problem, so this is the largest TV we can fit. We were thrilled with how easy this TV was to set up, how light it is, how bright and clear the picture, and how easy the controls are to use. For non-technical people, this was a snap. And, it was reviewed favorably on several sites. We love our LG TV! June 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by exceptionally clear picture We have been VERY impressed with the picture quality of this TV. Old Perry Mason episodes almost look like real life! Set up was fairly easy, although we have not yet been able to get our TV connected to our WiFi, unfortunately. Overall, we have been very pleased with this device. June 3, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by 6 Months Now And STILL Can't Use The Smart Feature Honestly, I am so frustrated now! I had bought this smart tv for Christmas and as of today, I am still unable to fully use the smart features. First, let me sy that I live and purchased my smart tv in the Caribbean, however when I tried to go to the default LG portal for my product, ALL the information was in Spanish without the ability to change the language to English. So I had to change the default region to he USjust to register my product. I also had to change the region to US for LG Smart World because of the same problem - no biggie, right? Wrong! I am nable to download ANYTHING from this app store! Here's the kicker: this LG operating system does not allow/permit/have the ability to "sign-in"and therefore I cannot utilize the appstore. There is no sign-in icon (person's head) on the home screen; changing regions under settings does not help. to add insult to injury, I am unable to get "live support" because I do not reside in the US and when I try to email for support, I cannot even find the model in their prouct list. Unless something miraculous happens, I cannot recommend this product. what I do recomment is that you save your money and buy a regular flat screen tv. THIS SMART TV IS THE WORST WASTE OF MONEY!!! July 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE MY TV!!!! Overall I love my smart tv, great picture, good sound. I havent owned it that long, so im still learning how to use its features. One thing im not really happy about is not knowing how to connect the internet to it. I couldve sworn it has a internet feature and still have no answer as far as that feature. But I will definitly be purchasing a bigger LG tv seeing that im starting off with a 32". June 26, 2015

Answer: 
The speakers are underneath the screen on the left and right hand sides, so it is best that you use the included feet to hold up the screen.

All you need is a standard wireless router or a Ethernet cable to connect to a modem. A wireless fob comes with the tv if you prefer to remain wireless.
