Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value for a workhorse TV The packaging was excellent and it was shipped to my work address with no damage. Setup was easy, and the system had a startup wizard that walked me through the basic setup. I was able to configure the wireless internet connection and setup my Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and YouTube accounts very quickly. It has a few other services that I don't use such as Vudu, Google Play, and MLB TV. I was able to easily connect my DVD player. The picture and sound are good for the price of the system. I plan to get a sound bar later. This is a good workhorse TV for a small or medium sized room at a good price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value for the Size! Just bought this TV yesterday, but so far it's great! Connects really fast to the internet and Netflix looks great! Need to get a new HDMI cable so that my cable comes in clearer, but other than that pleased so far!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be great with a few additions 1. The Remote is too small for adult fingers. Also, even though this is a Smart TV with web os, the remote does not have the laser pointer like the more expensive models. They should at least offer the laser remote for an extra charge. 2. The setup has many settings. I have an older LG 37LK450 that had a setup Wizard. This made it very easy to setup. Too bad this is not in this 2017 model.

Do all lg tv have hdr

Asked by: Mac will
Not all LG TVs support HDR. For HDR to work, the TV must have HDMI 2.0a ports as should the source that you are streaming from and they should also be HDCP 2.2 compliant. HDR is currently only offered and being developed commercially in 4K Ultra HD Resolution TVs. The Full HD 1080p Smart LED TV - 55" Class (54.6" Diag), Model # 55LJ5500 cannot support HDR nor any of the LG Full HD 1080p Smart LED TVs...^IFV
