What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish Looking Tv After reading many reviews I decided to take the plunge! I was a little concerned about the sound quality but shouldn't have been, The speakers really do match the impeccable screen quality. For anybody wanting a dood quality large screen Tv without the heafty price tag the LG 49lb5500 is definitely the one to go for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality TV Overall this TV is good value for money, if I could change anything it would be the sound quality just needs more depth to it, bought LG Sound Bar and now have PERFECT TV. This is my second LG TV bought smaller one for my caravan very happy with both

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Picture We are in our late 70's and can now actually read e.g. those Pointless Clues and the football scores as they cross the screen. Still wish we couldn't read the Election Promises though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delighted fantastic product at great price. Audio 7/10 Video 10/10. Only downside is no freeview HD just normal freeview, but as I have blu-ray and Apple TV not such a loss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with this TV Our last LG 42" tv gave up after 13 months (faulty screen). Even though it was out of warranty Argos gave us a large credit so I have stuck with LG as I have always been pleased with the Quality. Just bad luck on the last one. This 49" tv has everything going for it at a very reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money This is our second LG, we still have the 1st (42") and it still does the job but upgraded to larger size in our living room. Got to say that LG always give great value for money.
