What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection The 3-D is as perfect as it can be. This set replaces a smaller screen 3D from another brand. The LG is stunning in every way. A nice surprise was the quality of the Sound Bar. As apartment dwellers we appreciate great sound but can't have the big booming thumping woofers.With that in mind, this is perfect as well. Very happy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loving the 2D to 3D effect I personally love turning anything that is 2D into 3D that is great but the remote has a separate option for the volume when controlling the sound bar therefore I have to lug around two different remotes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely LOVE this TV's features and options! Best TV we've ever bought. Sad to see it's been discontinued because we would definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone! Our son loves to play his video games and watch movies in 3D. And paired with a 3D movie in our 3D bluray player, it's just like watching a 3D movie at the theater but better because we have the comfort of being at home!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good But Not Great The TV is good for the price. It's good for regular tv but not for PS3 or Xbox360, meaning if you playing GTA (Grand Theft Auto) speeding down a street you will notice the blur and it tends to auto scan during game play if not in game mode. Over all I would tell my friends to get it. Very sad that some theives broke in and stole my stuff after 3 months of having it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price, Great Features It's an excellent system, the only that is missing here is the subwoofer for the sound bar. Everything else is perfect for this tv size.
