What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really like the Netflix right front be remote We purchased this TV about a month ago and it was really way to set up

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fine product I have been using this product for about a month. I am not particularly computer savvy and would have had an easier time if a manual had been included. I did not have correct cable box and Comcast provided and set up television. Direction to a set up manual and one that listed features would have been great. Doing fine now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this TV! I bought this TV a few weeks ago through QVC. It was delivered and packaged safely. The setup took less time than anticipated, so I was truly happy about that. After setting everything up, I had a difficult time getting my WiFi to connect. I tried everything. I called my cable provider. They ran several test and reported that everything was fine. They suggest that I call LG Customer service support, and I did. In less than 5 minutes, my WiFi was connected!! It is because of the LG Customer service that I will purchase LG products again. Thank you for the wonderful experience, LG. I am one happy customer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outdoor Viewing Excellence Our new 43" TV is mounted on a wall under a covered porch beside a screened pool and pool deck. With the bright Orlando, FL sun, my concern was that whatever TV I bought had to compete with the porch's western exposure. After viewing the picture quality of the many brands available at a local store, LG's picture was buy far the most vibrant. I am pleased to report that even on the brightest of afternoons, the picture quality is not compromised.

I am running my cafe's menu on this model.  I had to update the menu, but when I reinserted the USB drive my files were no longer recognized.  I have tried reformatting the USB, but to no avail.  Your phone support customer service is of np help at all.

What HDMI CABLE AM I TO BUY? 

Asked by: akohio
There aren't any special types of HDMI cables required for use with LG Full HD 1080p Smart LED TV - 43" Class (42.5" Diag), Model # 43LJ5500. There are currently four kinds of HDMI cables available: High speed with Ethernet, High speed without Ethernet, Standard speed with Ethernet, and Standard speed without Ethernet. Standard speed cables can handle up to 1080i. High speed can handle definition far beyond 1080p. Most cables you'll find in stores are the high-speed cables, so the high-speed without the ethernet should be fine. You can have a Sales Associate qualify you on which one is best for you based on your needs and your setup...^IFV
