What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from everything about the oven I love it, the larger size, all the extra features and how quickly it heats and prepares my food. Much better than my previous oven. One of the best investments I've ever made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture This tv has a lot of great features. I like the ability to feet a great picture on all the available viewing options like anntena , Amazon, and the ability to use Google to search the internet. The great sound out options allow me to send it to my home theater system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thoughtfully Executed Product The control knobs for the stove's burners are excellent--way better than my former Viking. They feel solid and are precise. Small changes equate to equal changes in the flame. The oven has worked perfectly, quickly getting to temperature. The warming drawer seems to work best at the highest setting, but that's fine. My wife and I like everything about the range so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wife with Macular Degeneration Can See TV Better My wife has macular degeneration and to help her view TV details better, we purchased the biggest TV size that could fit in the room. What made us sold on this TV was the colors are much deeper and it helped her view TV details better. Also, I can play our favorite song on YOU TUBE.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbag TV stopped working completely after 2 years The TV performed alright for around 2 years. It had issues with sound ocassionally and is quite sluggish to turn on, but it was at least working. Then it abruptly stopped working -- completely -- and LG wanted to charge me hundreds more dollars to fix it. This is a garbage product. Televisions are not supposed to become completely nonfunctional within 2 or 3 years. Do not buy this product. It is a waste of your money AT BEST.

How can i connect my smart phone with my LG LED? I tried mutiple USB cables, but they all are not working, only USB drive is working. Help me out I am fed up

Asked by: Aarravv
Hello Aarravv, the 32LN533 is MHL able. Mobile High-definition Link (MHL) is an interface for transmitting digital audio/visual signals from mobile phones to television sets. It does require a MHL cable and your phone must be MHL enabled. > Connect the mobile phone to the HDMI IN 2 (MHL) port to view the phone screen on the TV. > With some MHL supporting mobile phones, you can use the TV remote to control the phone. ^AC

Hello, there should not be a plug/cap, however, there is a flap that covers the hole and when you insert the cable it will simply push in. ^AC
