Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 70 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Quit Working in 3 years Was a great TV up to the point it died on me with no warning. Lasted 3 years and 4 months. I know we live in a "disposable" society but I expect a major purchase like a flat screen tv from a reputable manufacturer to last longer than this. won't buy another LG product. May 17, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 Unreliable Digital tuner stopped working within 1 month of purchase. New Netcast apps have never been added to this model. December 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best screen! When I got this TV I was amazed specially the first time I got to see an old black and white movie. The quality was incredible, it was like watching it for the first time. November 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great LCD TV I got this wonderful LCD Plasma TV for my birthday's wish. LOVE it since 2010. September 25, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 Great TV Great looking and great performance. Built in LAN connection and usb wifi adapter port is great. Menu is awesome and easy for my wife to navigate. Best menu I've seen out there! October 26, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by 42LD550 I rec'd this as a gift from my mother when I moved to a new condo. I love it, I am a 5ft lady, and I set it up all by myself, picked it up and put it in the tv cabinet. The picture and sound are beautiful, and I ike the ease of how I can rotate it should I be in the kitchen making coffee, etc....i would love to get this or a the Cinema 3D tv for my son's room...he is away at college and I want a nice tv in his room....maybe he will come home more often!! thank you. October 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Value Of Money Looks awesome and works perfect. Netcast is a welcome bonus. This set is worth every penny. It's WI-FI ready but needs a LG dongle to use WI-FI or you can connect to internet using a simple network cord. October 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT TV Have had it for almost a year and am still very delighted with it. Wish I had bought a bigger one. October 24, 2011
