Full HD 1080p LED with Color Master Engine

Discover outstanding high-definition picture with precise Full HD 1080p resolution and enhanced colors for bluer skies, greener grass and more lifelike skin tones, all brought to life with the exceptional brightness and energy efficiency of LED.

Bluer skies. Richer sunsets.

Colors all look better than ever thanks to this special process that enhances the entire wheel — red, green, blue, cyan, magenta and yellow — as well as their hue and luminance.

HDMI. The Modern Standard.

For high performance viewing, the integrated HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface) lets TV watchers connect video devices quickly and easily using a single cable.

Wall Mountable

To simplify the mounting process, the rear panel of the TV arrives with the necessary screw holes to accept an industry-standard VESA 200x200 mount*(200mmx200mm configuration). Wall-mount the LG TV quickly and securely with common VESA-compliant hardware*.

USB: 1
Composite In / Component In: 1 / 1(shared with composite)

Sound happens all around you, just like real life.

Sound in the real world comes from every direction — left, right, above, below and behind. LG Virtual Surround recreates the experience so everything from blastoffs to bumps in the night sound like they're happening all around you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Picture and Sound! Got this TV a few weeks ago. Went from a 13" to a 43" and could not be more pleased. The sound and picture are clear as could be. It was super easy to set up and add in cable and gaming stations.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good picture This tv is very affordable and the picture quality is very good. The sound, however, is not so good. Great if you add some external speakers

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Picture is good, sound is meeeh! I have a question, has anybody been able to output sound to a soundbar via HDMI ARC or even gotten the tv to wake up with a device like a fire tv connected to the HDMI 1 ARC port ?
