What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great TV So far so good. Nice feature and clear picture . Friendly to use
Date published: 2017-05-13
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very good TV--horrible remote Purchased this set after returning set from another company because the quality of their picture was not good. The image on the LG set is markedly better and the tuner is way better than the set I returned--tuner reception is important because I use this set with an antenna for local stations--it recognizes and holds stations. The average rating is because the layout of the remote is abysmal--turning the set on means deciphering arcane symbols and wading through menus--look at how your competitors plainly and simply do the same thing.

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
