What people are saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Broken power-adapter pin on the laptop-end The hollow metal pin on the laptop-end of the power-adapter detached from the plastic housing & got stuck inside the laptop (had to be pulled out with tweezers) Looking for a replacement preferably USB-C with the right power rating, so that the we can have backups that can be used with other laptops.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Light but not perfect I like its lightness and backlit keyboard. That is all. The battery life, even when on Battery Saver, is no way close to the advertised 19 hours. The best I get is just 9 hours. The video is a weak built-in chip, it is an Intel 620 chip. It struggles when more than average video power is needed and you wish that you had a discreet video card. The CPU is an eighth generation Intel model, this is an old model that is 2 generations behind, current Intel CPUs are a 10th generation model. Another negative is LG's poor choice of providing the RJ-45 Ethernet adapter in a USB-C format which has very slow transfer speeds compared with USB-3, which they should have done. I normally average about 1,000 MB transfer speeds on my Comcast Gigabit connection, both wired and WiFi, but with the horrible, poor and very slow LG adapter I get only about 30 MB speeds, which is 33 times slower, totally unacceptable. LG must start providing a USB-3 adapters and throw this horrible USB-C model in the garbage. The price is ridiculously very high for what this laptop model offers, it should be around $800 in my opinion. It is not a good value at all. This model's only advantage is its light weight. You decide if it is worth the high price.
