Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing picture and sound combination I bought this 10 days ago and still going through all the settings. Easy to set up in about 10 minutes. Brilliant upscaling of SD and HD. Volume scale goes up to 100 and I only have used 25. No need for a soudnbar in a 17ft x 16ft lounge. Compatible with my existing PVR Freessat set up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After OLED, this is the best Great content, unbeatable picture for LED, fantastic magic remote (ok so it’s not as pretty as Samsung’s but it works like a dream). Been using the TV only four days. It is my new favourite gadget, packed with brilliant features and it looks amazing even when switched off. I’ve even removed my Yamaha sound bar because the sound quality was super impressive...from a TV! Well done LG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good so far Bought this TV from Currys 1 week ago, the SMART features and APPS are very good along with the Magic remote and its pointer. Setup is easy. 49" size is perfect if your living room is not very big.
