What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value I replaced my previous phone (not an LG) because this LG offered significantly more device memory than similarly priced competitors. Since then, I've come to really appreciate the LG's picture quality, as well. Very glad I bought it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needed updated out of package Love this tv but when I went to use Netflix for the first time it said that the app needed updated. I go to update the app and it says I need to sign user agreements before it can update. I got to download the user agreements and it had an error occur and I was unable to view them or accept. So I googled and discovered I needed to use my hot spot connection instead of home WiFi, then have to go to settings/general/about this Tv/updates. Then from there I was able to update all my apps then switch back to home WiFi and all was well! I feel if the apps aren’t going to be updated out of package you should include in your set up menu how to do so! Other wise great product compeley satisfied and would recommend to all!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good TV For The Price I purchased this for my parents. Set up was fairly easy. As was connecting the DirecTV receiver. Picture quality is good enough. Overall, a good TV.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good smart TV considering the price I bought the TV few months back and so far it's worked like a charm. Sometimes the WiFi takes couple of minutes to get a signal but usually it connects quite fast. The OS on the TV has some latency to it and you can see this when navigating things as this small "sluggishness". Sometimes when watching the Netflix the audio and video are a not properly synced, especially if you keep rewinding or going forward. The picture quality is great and the image is crisp. Also if you install the Intel WiDi software to your laptop, you can connect your laptop to the TV wirelessly which is very very very handy. The plastic casing doesn't feel sturdy at all and even with the legs tightly screwed in the bottom, the TV feels a bit wobbly when you touch it. But this could be also because the TV weighs nothing. Overall I'm very happy what I got with the price I was willing to pay for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from User friendly and great value for the price I got this TV when my old, overly heavy and super hot plasma screen TV died. After reading plenty of reviews I decided on the LG 55 and it works great and has good picture quality. A great purchase in my opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bracket Mounting No screws included to use to mount on my bracket (4 holes in back of TV). It took 3 calls to LG to identify screw size. I had to go to Home Depot.

Is there a way to get Pandora on this TV??

Asked by: Sami25
It would be suggested to search the LG Content Store for the Pandora app. If not available, it would not be possible to add to the TV at this time.

Hi I have a bought a 49LG5500 Model in USA and brought the TV to India. I tried to plug in the TV with a step down adaptor 220/110 V. However, the display is not turning on. Can I get some techinca support in India for the same.

Asked by: hkaktwan
Firstly, the LG Full HD 1080p Smart LED TV - 49" Class (48.5" Diag), Model # 49LJ5500 is a dual voltage TV (100~240Vac 50-60Hz) so you don't need a step-down adapter. The voltage is not the issue. What is an issue are the built-in tuners in the TV. This TV has an ATSC, an NTSC and a QAM tuner in it and none of those tuners are compatible with the Television Broadcast Standards used in India. You will not be able to receive any TV programming in India with this TV...^IFV

Hi Fawzi. Regrettably, we are unable to find an LG TV with the model # 49LH55 (model number is incomplete and the only 49" 2016 LG TVs we had were the LH5700 and the LH570B series TVs. However, in the model number, the letter "L" identifies the screen matrix type as a Full HD 1080p LED. TV, it is not a 4K TV which would be indicated by a "U" (for 4K UHD)...^IFV

Using the LG as a monitor as a display for my PC.

Asked by: Phinias T
Hi Phinias T.

The TV also supports Wi-Fi Direct, so if the Operating System on your computer is Windows 7 or Windows 8, run Intel® WiDi.

A list of available devices will be displayed on the TV and you can then select your computer to connect and you will be able to view your computer screen on the TV. The TV supports the connection over the Intel® WiDi 3.5 version. It is recommended that you use a 5GHz router for the best performance...^IFV
