What People Are Saying

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 473 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by superb Love this tv. The picture is sooo good on blu ray. What a great tv for this price. July 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The picture quality is very good. This is our bedroom TV. The picture is very clear, bright and sharp. The picture refresh rate is good. The sound is good. Remote is easy to use. Rear HDMI connections makes for easy hook up. All around good TV. July 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is an outstanding achievement in Technology My TV has perfect screen resolution. It is like a 3d reflection on a mirror. The sound is great . The connections and the remote capabilities free the user of headaches attempting to figure out what goes with what. I relish watching TV in such pleasant conditions. August 2, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great TV TV works great, the colors are super bright. Great features as well. August 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I really like and enjoy the great features it hold This is my first LG product and I must say that I'm highly pleased with it and plan on making another purchase with in the same brand. Great work on the smart TV LG. June 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful picture I am amazed by the picture and clarity of this television. It looks almost to good to be real. I am so pleased to have been able to purchase such a beautiful piece of art! June 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Performance and Value This is the fifth LG HDTV I've purchased and I couldn't be happier. The picture quality is great, in a dark or well lit room. The IPS panel is a real treat, as the LB6300 has awesome viewing angles. The motion blur can be all but eliminated if that's what you desire (and I do). And the Smart interface is intuitive. In fact, I am impressed with the contrast between the LB6300's Smart interface/layout and that of the LS5700. I think both approaches are good, but what's nice about the LB6300's Smart TV layout is that because the streaming apps appear at the bottom of the screen, one can continue watching TV without any meaningful impact on the picture before clicking onto the desired streaming service. If you're still weighing your streaming options, this is a nice feature. Finally, Sound Sync is also a very useful feature. I've paired my LB6300 with an LG soundbar and the ability to use the one remote for changing channels and raising/lowering volume on the TV and soundbar simultaneously is really great. I have only two criticisms of this TV. First while the three HDMI inputs it features are adequate, a fourth for a model in this price range would be appropriate. Second, the wide stand obviously limits placement. A central stand would be much more versatile. In the grand scheme of things, this is an excellent TV especially for the money! June 7, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Amazing Picture I love the big screen, 65". The ease of the remote is nice. The only suggestion would be making the screen a bit less reflective July 14, 2015

Answer: 
You can browse the internet, but there are two things you should know: 1) I could not get a wireless USB keyboard to be recognized; and 2) flash video/apps are not supported, so some sites will not display correctly.

There is NO headphone jack. The only audio-out is optical. If there is such a thing as USB headphones, they MAY work, otherwise I think you would need a sound bar or a receiver.

Answer: 
I cannot find a headphone jack on my TV. I think here are a couple of possible ways around this. One is to use a USB headphone, but that might not turn off the TV speakers if you are looking to listen quietly. Another possibility is to use the RCA Left and Right Audio jacks. Here you would need to either find a special cable with two RCA plugs on one end and a female connector an the other end that you can plug a headphone plug into, or you could build a small box with RCA Input jacks and wire them to a stereo headphone out put jack. Then set the TV to the external speaker mode.

I apologize, but no; this television does not have a headphone jack. We have no recommendations for making such a connection, other than to connect an external audio system to the OPTICAL Digital Audio Output jack, and connecting the headphones to that port.

Answer: 
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this television. It seems that this TV may have its Energy Saving features active. One of these features is designed to automatically adjust the brightness level of the TV based on the ambient lighting. Try to deactivate the Energy Saving feature to see if this resolves the matter. If it does not correct the situation, then the unit may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair....

Answer: 
There is no unit of measure for brightness on TVs. All TVs will have a brighter setting like "vivid" or "dynamic". They just turn the backlighting to its highest setting. Although a brighter tv may look great, some TVs will wash away detail. It's not always recommended to have the backlight at its highest setting. I own this tv and it's "vivid" setting is more than needed for a great picture..
