What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value Ever I have owned this unit for several years now, and cannot state just how happy I have been with this TV. Bought this as a replacement to another unit that failed just after the warranty expired. Great features and picture is excellent. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A nice , mid range T.V. I have had my TV for about 6 months. I really like it. This is my first smart TV. Still learning how to use everything. Sound is just OK. I hooked my TV up to a sound bar which makes all the difference in the world. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did not last long I'm not sure why I received an email to review a TV I purchased almost 7 years ago. I really loved the TV until one day the screen was scrambled and it had to warm up to work. I looked on the web and found the TV to be faulty some bad solder connections. It warms up fairly quick in the summer months but with these north east winters it takes much longer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best television picture I have ever owned or seen I bought this television after shopping all over town and on line and found it to be the best picture and features of all that I have or talked with salespersons about. I am hard of hearing having lost it in Korea and my advanced age makes it hard to use a phone or hear the televison without my hearing aids. The only suggestion would be to put a control so the bass and treble could be adjusted. I got a great buy and am happy with my LG television. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Buy TV I was given options but I bought this particular one. Loved it and still in love. Hooked up with my Bluetooth keyboard and mouse and serves the purpose of a personal computer, which we use just for internet anyway. Highly recommend this TV Thanks LG [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
