What People Are Saying

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stunning picture. Real quality throughout. I wanted quality and I wanted a viewing experience without having to be constantly tweaking and adjusting things and this LG delivers - very pleased with this set. The picture is hands down the best I have ever seen - better then a movie theater (though smaller of course :-) ). The set itself is a work of art. February 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simply great The review I read--professional and plain ol' consumer like me said this was the best TV ever. Certainly the best I've ever seen February 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I Love My Fancy New TV You know why this TV is amazing? Because my wife, who normally could care less about gadgets and electronics, loves this TV. The operating system is super easy. I love the pointer selection tool. I also love that the remote is a RF signal and not an IR signal. What else....oh, just that this is the best picture on the market right now. Godzilla 2014 by Garreth Edwards is a great movie, but its soooooo dark. On this TV, this movie just looks amazing. It's still super dark but all the right things pop and contrast. If you have the dough to spend on a fancy new TV, buy this one! February 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best TV i have ever owned Picture quality is superior to anything I have viewed before pleasure to operate simple and use January 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product This television is truly a great product. It is 3d, smart, curved and awesome all in one.... Recommend to all January 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great TV Excellent picture, beautiful blacks. Easy to setup. Has lots of features. Very nice having all the advanced picture settings. January 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Phenomenal product that should be the standard. I chose and would again choose this product over a non OLED 4K tv any day. The only hang-up is the cost, but you can not get deeper blacks and the contrast is unparalleled. January 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing picture quality and features I have had this TV for about six weeks now and every time I use it, it brings a smile to my face. The picture quality is truly outstanding and the streaming and advanced features only add to the experience. The TV looks beautiful even when it is off. Be careful. If you shut off your source (XBOX, AppleTV, DVD, etc.) before shutting off the TV, you may forget to shut the TV off because the screen is completely black even though the TV is on.....Only down side was the price.

Prevention of "tipping"

I have inspected the rear of the tv and found no "connectors that can be used to prevent tipping from a shelf.
What do you suggest to remedy this?

Answer: 
Good question ! I do not have an answer for you but I have been thinking about it (I own this set). Since it is fairly light weight I am thinking about fabricating a couple of clips that could slip over the very edge of the screen itself at either side (small enough to grip but not be readily visible from the front) or slip over the edges of the plastic housing that covers the electronics on the back of the set. These clips would in turn be attached to a thin nylon like webbing strap (Ikea uses a similar type webbing with their Ivar shelving to prevent tipping), and the straps would then be attached to the wall or cabinet.

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in the security of this television. You are correct; there are no points available for securing this television to the counter. The weight of the TV is designed to lean more toward the back, centered over the feet, and is heavier in the base than in the screen.

Answer: 
Right now it only comes in a 55" Model. In the future different sizes will become available. Depending on the size of the lift cabinet the T.V. should fit. Don't forget about the curvature and how it might affect the area.

My question is why have you ( and your competitors) chosen to go with a curved screen ? Frankly the extremely thin flat screen could be inlay-ed to a wall and appear none existent until used. What is the benefit of the curved screen that I'm missing?

The aesthetic benefit only if you're into aesthetic futuristic stuff. I went with a curved screen, cause I could get no other OLED TV.

3D off

Can you turn the 3D off? I already wear glasses and do not care to have to wear 3d glasses when watching TV.
