Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! The best television viewing experience I've ever had. As a television and film writer/producer I'm not easily impressed. But I love this picture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was probably the last house on the block with an old style TV. When I decided to by a flat screen, I started looking around. I wanted one with all the new features. I checked the reviews and prices. Costco is where I by many of my appliances so they were the first place I looked. I bought this TV online. I have had it for several months now and I love it. It is so beautiful. Everyone who comes in the house is amazed at the picture quality and design. I have used many of the features and have not had any issues. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OUTSTANDING PICTURE!!!!! I replaced a Pioneer Kuro 4080HD with this TV and couldn't be HAPPIER! This is by far the best picture I have ever seen on a TV! The contrast between dark and light is amazing! The remote is solid and their sync software works flawlessly with my home theater. Even the stand and wall mount are perfectly designed! So far I have about 1,000hrs on the set and things are looking great! Buy it, you won't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Viewing TV for the Money Out There I purchased this TV about 1 - 2 months ago and besides getting used to the wand controller and settings, this TV has been wonderful. The resolution and picture quality are excellent (this being my third LG TV now). I replaced a older generation 3D LG model with this one. I tried the 3D briefly and it is really easy to use. Instead of two controllers previously, now there is only one :). My wife also is enjoying the excellent picture and the sound is pretty good as well but I typically utilize my sound bar. Much thinner and about the same weight as the older model. You do not a proprietary wall mount. Decided this time around to just use the stand and place it on the fire place which works well. Great viewing from all angles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW-This is a great experience. This is an eye treasure. Amazing color, style and capabilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best picture. I bought last month and the picture is amazing even with regular HD. The 2016 Olympics was great. Sometimes the program gets stuck for a few seconds, I wish LG upgrades the OS to 3.0.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome TV with a steep price tag! I bought this oled TV a couple of months after it first arrived in the market. So the price has dropped in certain retailers. Overall I love the way it absorbs the viewer and its simple yet sleek design. Nice almost no bezel look makes the images more edge to edge makes the viewer experience more immersive. The web os 2.0 works well with small flaws such as remote control lag sometimes. Decent sound quality compared to other TVs this thin. I would definitely recommend the TV in terms of picture quality and friendly enjoyable user experience.
