Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this for my son as a Christmas gift. It gets multiple usage for movies, video games and "The Walking Dead" zombie show. He is 22 and rates it at FIVE STARS. Great picture and the price was definately right!! COSTCO product. Bought the extended warranty, but doubt we will ever need it. LG has given us great product satisfaction in the past!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still deciding. I was looking for a 4K smart tv and this size fit my space nicely. I have an older 1080p LG tv that I love. I'm having a hard time adjusting the picture on the new tv to replicate the color on my older tv.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for our Family Room We purchased this TV from Costco at a wonderful price, based on past experience with LG television products. We are not disappointed in our decision. It was easy to set up, and integrate with our sound bar. The only small problem is adjusting the picture and sound quality from a vast array of menu choices. We love the TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remarkable color & definition Fantastic picture. Went from a Zenith 32" analog to this 49" digital. The color and size of the picture makes it feel like almost being in a theater. The on-board apps are great. Setting up was so easy. Sound is pretty good too. Currently meets all my needs.
