Rated 1 out of 5 by from difficult to operate Purchased this TV based on previous LG equipment. Very disappointed!! Volume adjustment is worst of any TV ever purchased. No response from LG relating to problems and questions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value! Out of the box this unit has been excellent! Set up was very simple with great instructions on the unit. I was streaming my Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon quickly. I can even attach a wireless mouse and surf the web!! Plenty of great features. Hooked up easily with my sound system and works seamlessly with everything! Picture is amazing! Sound is decent on the unit (probably my only complaint) but most times use my sound system anyway. Only real problem is the stands are a bit short so my sound bar blocked the remote from working. Fortunately I already had riser so no worries, and it looks better ;) Also had a tuner so when I cut the "cable" I'm ready. Awesome tv for the price!! Has everything I need and more! Previously had an LG plasma which was excellent. LG didn't disappoint! If you don't want to break the bank, want high quality, tons of features but don't really need the "ultimate" in television, this one is perfect!
