Rated 5 out of 5 by 1st 4k TV... I'm in Love!!!! Just received mine after a long awaited arrived! It's everything that I was hoped it would be.. The picture is so clear and crisp! I thought I was actually in the water in some tropical videos. hehe. . i'm so happy with this purchase and would recommend this tv to anyone! I love the web os setup, but the magic remote take a little white to get use to. Anyway, thanks LG for making the 4k that fit into my budget! September 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing first 4K and 3D looks even better now! Purchased this TV from Best Buy at an amazing price. Couldn't pass up a 55" 4k passive 3D TV with up-scaling! Hook up was a snap, and the picture is amazing. The 3D looks even better than my LG 55LW6500 which blew out. The additional lines of resolution mean that we can be even closer to the screen without the feathery edges from a 1080P Passive 3D (Passive is nice because the glasses are really cheap to obtain) Cons: Menu does not allow an easy way to do advanced edits to the screen settings. The motion remote takes a bit to get used to. Wi-fi capability wasn't included (used the adapter from my old TV) but is an optional purchase. Pros: Amazing contrast, color and response. Love the up-scaled images. Screen is astounding from 1080P September 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great entry level 4k Tv Picture is pretty good, was hoping for better picture but.I think it's in,the settings. September 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This TV rocks! I've had this TV now for over a month and so far I'm unable to find a flaw. I bought it through Amazon at a considerable discount from the suggested retail and for the money all I can say is wow! The 4K step up from BluRay is awesome. I watched Avatar in 3D and it jumped off the screen in a spectacular fashion. I was mesmerized. I subscribe to MLB and the color and detail of the picture makes me feel as if I'm sitting in a box seat at the game - only better. Had to fiddle with the adjustments a bit and after some fine tuning I was able to get the picture looking awesome. I use my own sound system so really can't speak about the built in speakers. All in all I'm totally satisfied. Highly recommended. August 29, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rocky start but seems to be operating perfect now. Worked perfect out of the box but within a few weeks I started to experience issues. The picture started to turn redder and darker. The blacks seemed to clip and there was quite a bit of color banding as if I were watching 8 bit video. I got on with customer support chat and after some setting changes it returned to normal. Another few weeks later the issue returned only now there was severe latent image retention. I was about to send it back and suddenly it returned to normal again and has been performing flawless since(several weeks). Fingers crossed. My only other remark to make is the remote. It's very clumsy, mostly when trying to enter text, especially YouTube. August 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great picture, love the 3D All of the family have enjoyed this TV, especially the 3D feature. Even viewing a 2D movie in 3D was pretty incredible. Still learning about all the features, but am very happy so far with this set. August 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Clarity This LG tv is everything we were looking for. It has amazing clarity and its Smart TV feature gives us unlimited access to the internet and programming we like. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. August 16, 2014
