What people are saying
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2007 and still running with no issues!! I bought this so many moons ago over 10 years. My son was 4 now he is 17. The only thing about this tv I can’t do what my smart tv does.like the WiFi aspect of watching YouTube and when I watch videos on YouTube it doesn’t show up....if anyone has learned how to do this on this tv please give me directions. Thank you! Other than that it’s a long lasting good tv that still looks the same and good coloring after 10 years@,,,

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great TV, disappointing Issue I received this TV for Christmas back in 2013 and I have loved every minute of it since, until... Last year, it all of a sudden started having issues with the screen going black. This continued and one day it would not come back on. I sent it in for service with my warranty company and got it back. It was great for about another month and then.. Duh duh duh.. It started again. I contacted my warranty company again but this time fixing isn't an option. Apparently, this is a recurring issue for this model TV and actually it's not even manufactured anymore. Now, I have to choose whether to take the money for the TV or receive one of the same caliber. Kinda sucks, I really miss my LG!!
