Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the picture! My wife and I purchased this TV just weeks ago and wonder how we did without it! Picture is amazing and sound is much better than we expected. We will not be buying a sound bar-period. Out granddaughter set up the apps for Netflix and others and we love it! Did not plan to purchase this brand, LG, but it was a demo tv on next to what we planned to purchase and LG was so much better! No regrets!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV This is a perfect tv if you don't want or need smart features. The price is right and is perfect for being a bedroom television. The picture quality is great and even though it only has 2 HDMI ports, that was all that I needed for my bedroom.
