Rated 1 out of 5 by from backlight led failed I never seen backlight led failing. few of the backlight LED (4 leds) failed and no replacement option for that. I ended up throwing this tv. I will never recommend this tv to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 3 years old. Broke. I bought this TV 3 years ago. . And now it is broke. The screen is flickering on and off. It is not usable. Very disappointing. We were assured by the staff that LG was the best brand to go with, wrong choice. We spent a very good amount of money for it to quit less than 3 years later. We will not be buying LG products again, how convenient right at Christmas time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features for a price I love the active HDR, I think it is even superior to 4K. Smart Channels are limmited compared to Roku or Amazon or Apple TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This T.V. makes watching enjoyable! The sharpness of this unit makes you feel like your in the studio filming. And along with the soundbar TV is again enjoyable

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BUNK REMOTE! GREAT PRICE, NICE PIC BUNK REMOTE, thought we were getting a SMART/WEB OS remote [the one like the Wii] didn't happen and can't upgrade. other than that nice TV. DO NOT like that Lg has lowered their standards by allowing a plastic back and plastic legs that make the TV shake back and forth either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent picture and home network functionality. I bought this 3 years ago, so I have some experience with this TV. The picture is still excellent, even after 15,739 hours of on time. The tuner is very good. I live in the country and get good DTV signal and picture. Good DLNA support. Playing videos from a computer over a network is fun. WebOS is Linux. Support for wireless keyboard works, if you like that sort of thing. Only con is the Smart UI for accessing menus and Streaming services is a little slow and awkward but not too bad to dock a star. Also, it survived a lightning strike that fried a lot of other things. Phone and network equipment fried. But this TV survived.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money well spent We have had this microwave for about a month now and overall I will give this product an excellent rating. It seems to be well built, definitely has an attractive design and works as advertised. The expanding hood vent is a great feature. The only negative that I have identified is it is very dim when looking through the window (I feel it is due to the fact that the inside of the microwave is so dark) and it hard to see into if your short in stature. Overall an excellent product will great features at a competitive price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish with Great Features! We’ve had our LG dishwasher for a few weeks. It was extremely easy to install, looks great, and works flawlessly. It’s very user friendly, extremely quiet, and efficient. Very happy with it at this point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing picture! I bought this a few weeks back and it is such an amazing picture I will be upgrading my other two TVs very soon and one of them is the 60 in UHD 4K LG.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed I purchased my LG TV in July, 2014 and now it's sitting in the floor in my bedroom because it will not work. All it does is blink on and off (which I understand is a common problem). This TV should have worked a lot longer than 3 years without having to pay for repairs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Get an extended warranty Was great until it stopped working. I bought this tv a little less than 3 years ago as a Christmas present for my husband; the tag on the tv says it was manufactured in September 2014. This was a huge purchase for me, very expensive and I went with a reportedly trusted brand. Now the tv display flickers, brief flashes of on followed by a second of off while the audio functions fine. I went online and found that this is a huge problem for LG smart tv's, with people experiencing the problem shortly after the warranty is expired. Get the extended warranty. I suppose I should feel lucky ours worked as long as it did but I don't. I feel like I wasted several thousand dollars when I could've gotten a cheap Wal-Mart tv for much less. Major appliances used to last. Probably the last LG item I ever purchase. What a waste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible TV I replaced my old tube TV with this incredible TV ! After 3 years it is still amazing. I highly highly recommend it. Had to upgrade my router to overcome initial buffering problems, but has been very reliable ever since.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Died 1.5 years into its life I really liked this TV, but 1.5 years of life is horrible. Luckily I had an extended warranty.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could be improved. Really enjoy the picture on this LG TV. But disappointed it does not have PIP ability. and more ports on the back for additional equipment. And the ports that are on the TV cannot be reached with a wall-mounted type. Also, it is very difficult to understand adding equipment to this TV. I have been trying to get my VCR hooked up. I want more than just DVR. A manual would have been very helpful for older people that have a hard time trying to find answers on a computer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from re: TV 55" Failure Purchased for Christmas 2014. TV just failed. Hear low snap, popping sound when turn TV picture. Read in LG..."solder may crack". First time EVER to have TV to fail.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor operating system I bought new. I am very disappointed to not be getting the web os3. Our interface is horrible non TWC compliant and we have replaced two remotes. I will continue to stay loyal though. I'm about to get another lg 4K and ditch this model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent picture for the money. Only dissapointment, my hearing is poor so I use a wireless headset with analog audio inputs. I purchased a optical-to-analog converter since the TV only has an analog output. However, it won't allow both the speakers and the optical output at the same time, so if I use the headphones, no one else can enjoy it as the speakers are off! Dumb design.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Huge input lag, poor coloring, auto-dimming is bad I got this TV from a relative who upgraded to a 60 inch TV. I have the 42 inch model of this TV now. After I mounted it onto the wall, I hooked it up to my gaming computer to see how cool it would be to play on a 42 inch TV rather than my 17inch screen. I was terribly disappointed in what I found. The input lag compared to my other monitor was huge, making gaming not enjoyable. I spent about 20 minutes in the OS settings on my computer trying to get the coloring on the TV to look good, still haven't gotten it to show anywhere close to good (maybe it will look 'good' to people who don't have any feel for what a good screen looks like). What was incredibly annoying, on top of all that, was the auto-brightness feature. It never had just he right brightness for my room, it often changed its brightness, which looks so annoying, and I often found myself wanting to change it manually. I do not recommend this TV.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product die after 21 months The TV lasted less than 2yrs, even though it was barely used. To repair it costs more than a new TV.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent Except For ONE Flaw The Global Dimming "feature" is an absolute nightmare and is impossible to disable. There is nothing more frustrating than watching a scene that goes into a dark room and then the entire screen dims to the point of being unable to see any detail whatsoever. Search for "LG Global Dimming" and you'll see dozens of examples of this in action. If I had known beforehand about this I never would have purchased it. Unfortunately, I did not discover it until I was past the time I could return it. This TV has an otherwise excellent picture and feature set, but just be aware of the Global Dimming before you purchase an LG. If possible, watch the into to an episode of Star Trek The Next Generation and you will be able to see the problem clearly. I keep hoping that a firmware update may add the capability of disabling this major aggravation, but so far no luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best TV I've been having this TV for a year now and have had no problems with it so far, the picture quality is excellent, built in wifi is a huge plus, the only complaint i have is while wall mounting, the hdmi connection is a lil hard to get to but that is a minor issue, overall A+ satisfaction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful picture Bright, beautiful picture. Bought this 6 weeks ago. No problems, though agree with other reviewers who dislike the lack of Flash Player. But if you want a great picture and don't need online videos, then I'd recommend.
