Rated 5 out of 5 by accidental damage? I think this product is awesome! I just worry about if something happens and the screen gets damaged because i was not offered any accidental damage protection. August 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has a great picture. This TV has a great picture and the features are easy to access using the mouse. July 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This TV is Amazing The easy to follow guide made set-up a breeze. The quality of the picture blew me away. The Smart TV features are awesome. The style, with the narrow bezel, is very chic. I put this one in the master bedroom and now I'm hoping to get one with an even bigger screen for the family room very soon. July 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by for all my necesities I will buy this product again without think it twice July 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by EXCELLENT BUY I'VE WAITED FOR 5 MONTHS TO EVALUATE THIS TV KNOWING THAT INSTANT REVIEWS ARE MEANINGLESS. THIS TV IS BY FAR THE VERY BEST PURCHASE I'VE EVER MADE. THE PICTURE IS BEYOND OUTSTANDING, AND SOUND QUALITY IS EXCELLENT. THE INSTRUCTIONS SIMPLISTIC AND EASY TO FOLLOW. AFTER 5 MONTHS I'M AS IMPRESSED WITH THE TV AS I WAS THE DAY I PURCHASED IT July 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tv This tv is perfect for me - low energy use, good internet for Netflix, nice screen and picture, and a really good price. Overall thumbs up! July 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is the best SMART LED TV for the money I had been researching TVs and when I saw this one, I knew that LG was a good quality brand. When I read the features and observed the floor model in action, I knew this was the TV for me and paid a lot less than I expected for it. When I got it home, it was very easy to set up. I will stick with LG. I also love my LG G2 cell phone :) July 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT value! This TV has been nothing short of amazing for us. The sound, the picture...awesome! I love that I can get "old" movies etc on features such as Amazon and youtube, without having to change remotes, and inputs. The sound is amazing...and of course, the size is nothing to sneeze at!

LG NB3730A + 50LN5700; one remote

I'm trying to use my LG 50LN5700 LED TV with an LG NB3730A sound bar. All of the instructions seem to indicate that I should be able to use the volume on the TV remote to control the volume on the sound bar using Simplink. When I go into the Simplink menu the TV option is grayed out even though it is set to LG Sound Sync (Optical). I get audio through the sound bar. but have to use two remotes, which I don't want to do.
What settings do i need to configure on the sound bar and TV to make the Simplink work?

Answer: 
After researching this a little further I discovered that Simplink uses the Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) technology that is part of the latest hi-speed HDMI standard. I was using an older HDMI cable that didn't support this standard. After replacing the cable, the Simplink, and the volume adjustment worked fine.
Another answer says not to use optical. This is incorrect. The optical connection is the sound bar's input and the HDMI is the controlling output.

Answer: 
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this Television and Sound Bar. The SimpLink feature is only available when the two devices are connected using the HDMI cable. The OPTICAL port will not support this feature. If you have additional questions, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

Answer: 
Per a call to LG support with my own question on this, I was told that everything runs at 60Hz input to the TV for now. The Info screen is showing you the input settings - you get the 120Hz on this model by having the motion software interpolate the movements on the screen and add frames. This is why you see extremely smooth motion but almost a 3D effect when you turn the motion up high. By adding frames it is effectively speeding up the refresh rate that you experience, but input devices are still at the 60Hz rate.

Answer: 
This television has been designed with a 1080p / 120Hz screen. If the display is stating 60Hz, this is simply stating the format and resolution being received from the signal source. The screen will still be processing the image at 120Hz and 1080p.

can I play 3d movies on this?

Do I have to buy anything special to play 3d movies or can I play directly from my list of downloaded movies? And yes, I realize I would need 3d glasses.

I apologize, but no; the LN5700 television series is not designed as a 3D television. As such, no 3D images will be available for viewing with this model.
