Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 68 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by best TV I have ever owned Very good TV for money mine has close to 8,000 hours on it and is still working fine no problems. very good picture quality and sound.has every thing I look for in a TV.Best TV I have ever owned. January 25, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great TV/Monitor This TV was purchased to serve as a "large screen" monitor for various portions of an IP Network. Secondary use is for the TV portion. It functions perfectly in both capacities. For the Network monitoring, we have it connected to a workstation using a wireless video feed. The resolution is great for viewing "across the room" icons and details of the network. The TV portion is fantastic - basic cable provides both standard and HD channels that display well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 42LE5500 The clarity is so visually life-like and clean. The set-up and operational features are very easy to navigate. The audio/stereo soundis also outstanding.From Blu-ray Movies to sunday Football,the fast action motion is never a blur.I would give the Product Ratings a solid 5 stars. October 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product I purchased this television on 12 21, 2010, and have never once had any negatives about its performance. Right out of the box it was flawless, using the preconfigured settings on default. After I became familiar with all of the options for pictures, sound etc, I customized it for my environment, and again it performed flawlessly. This is the first LG televsion I have owned, but certainly won't be the last. The internet capabilities further enhanced my experience, and could not have been easier to configure with my DSL MODEM. I stream entertainment frequently and have never had a glitch. I am currently in the market for one of the latest LG SMART Televisions, and if the one I currently own is an indication of what I can expect from the next generation, I know I will be impressed and very happy with my purchase. Way to go LG, wish more corporations had the same foresight on their products. October 25, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent TV We've had this LG LED LCD TV for a little over a year, and it's fantastic, for the most part. When we purchased it, we compared the picture to all of the other available similar sized pictures, and this one stood out, by far, as the best. The clarity and brightness is unmatched by similar sets. True, it did cost a bit more than the other similar sized set, but IMO, it was worth it. The only feature that I'm not extremely impressed with is the sound quality. It has a numbered range for volume from 1 - 100, and when the volume level exceeds 30 or so, it begins to sound a bit distorted. Since the speakers are very small and on the back of the set, I'm sure this is why. Overall, I'm very happy with this set, so far, though. September 21, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by best purchase ever I went out looking at a tv and came home with this tv that day. I love this tv. It's so easy to use and I have not had any issues with it. Good Job LG November 3, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product for the money I had this HDTV for about 8 months. It has been a steady performer. Screen is bright and good contrast between colors, black & white. I like all of its features even-though I haven't used some of them. But I know its there if needed. However, Im disappointed with the sound quality of the TV speakers. You must connect to ext sound device to enjoy it. Also Im not happy about the accuracy of pixel/resolution. When I hook up my laptop thro HDMI, the edges of text/objects are not sharp. My brother's 2 year old plasma looks better on that aspect. Overall Im happy with the product, its fast and responsive for games and movies. The features are a bonus. September 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best TV I have owned this TV for 3 months and all i can say its the best TV ever. The display is most thing i like about it, its great when you watch HD movies, play games September 16, 2011
