Rated 3 out of 5 by from weak os. The picture is good. I picked this for the webOS3.5 turns out this unit doesn't support all the webOS3.5 features! What a mistake from LG. WebOS could have have distinguished them from many of the others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just one thing to mention When we use the closed captioning, the words come straight across the screen totally blocking the view and faces of the actors. As a suggestion, please put the closed captioning down at the bottom.
