Rated 5 out of 5 by EXCELLENT BUY I'VE WAITED FOR 5 MONTHS TO EVALUATE THIS TV KNOWING THAT INSTANT REVIEWS ARE MEANINGLESS. THIS TV IS BY FAR THE VERY BEST PURCHASE I'VE EVER MADE. THE PICTURE IS BEYOND OUTSTANDING, AND SOUND QUALITY IS EXCELLENT. THE INSTRUCTIONS SIMPLISTIC AND EASY TO FOLLOW. AFTER 5 MONTHS I'M AS IMPRESSED WITH THE TV AS I WAS THE DAY I PURCHASED IT July 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is the best SMART LED TV for the money I had been researching TVs and when I saw this one, I knew that LG was a good quality brand. When I read the features and observed the floor model in action, I knew this was the TV for me and paid a lot less than I expected for it. When I got it home, it was very easy to set up. I will stick with LG. I also love my LG G2 cell phone :) July 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has a great picture. This TV has a great picture and the features are easy to access using the mouse. July 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT value! This TV has been nothing short of amazing for us. The sound, the picture...awesome! I love that I can get "old" movies etc on features such as Amazon and youtube, without having to change remotes, and inputs. The sound is amazing...and of course, the size is nothing to sneeze at! July 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This TV is Amazing The easy to follow guide made set-up a breeze. The quality of the picture blew me away. The Smart TV features are awesome. The style, with the narrow bezel, is very chic. I put this one in the master bedroom and now I'm hoping to get one with an even bigger screen for the family room very soon. July 5, 2014

Answer: 
Amazon Prime is not in the Smart options as of June 1013. I worked around this issue by attaching a RoKu unit to the TV. RoKu adds a few additional options to an already good Smart TV.

How good is this TV for gaming? Is there any input lag? If there is, would Game Mode fix it?

Input question. I would like to receive both “Antenna TV” as well as Dish TV on this LG. Is it possible to connect a splitter to the RF antenna input and easily switch between the two types of broadcasts? Do I need an HD converter box for the “Antenna TV” to work?

Answer: 
No splitter is necessary. Plug your antenna (and you will need to purchase an antenna, because one does not come with the set) into the coax input on the back of the TV, and plug your Dish TV box HDMI output into one of the TV's HDMI inputs, and you are set to go. The TV does have a built in digital tuner, so there is no need for a converter box to view over the air TV. I view both Direct TV and over the air broadcasts using this method. i hope that this helps.

I did see a choice in the on-screen set up that asked if I wanted: 1. Antenna, or 2. Antenna and box, or 3. Box.
