What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product After doing a lot of online research, I decided to go with LG in purchasing this TV. Not sorry about my decision. Only problem I had was installing the feet to the TV - I didn't find any printed information on how to install them, and took about 45 minutes. Maybe LG could come up with a simpler design for older people.
