Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great but Disposable and Short Lived TV I loved this TV! Great picture and lots of features. Unfortunately, it didn't last. One day I no longer got sound or picture. According to the authorized repair person, the main board has to be replaced, which equates to the price of just getting a new tv. What a waste. A great TV being tossed. Not sure if I'll get another LG tv.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT TV, also good repair project! I got mine from a friend who was tossing it out as junk. Seems like power supply board has issued running. I saved the TV and I am glad to have. I will be replacing the part and believe that it will work fine since it flashes LG logo when it originally turned on. I don't recommend junking yours if it fails, there are a lot useful parts in there and it isn't too hard to fix if you know what your doing. I also like the design of the TV as well as its convenient weight. If yours dies, sell it for parts or give it to a friend who takes them apart.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great disposable tv The picture was awesome great audio played well with all my other components . alas it was short lived 2 months after factory warranty ran out so did my tv. Customer service wasn't a whole lot of help. Needless to say I believe I won't be getting another LG. TV.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great TV but doesn't last Performed better than expected, but unfortunately it ended up breaking about a year and a half into me owning it. My warranty expired about 4 months prior to it breaking. The screen stopped coming on. Good TV but longevity is a question.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only lasted 18 months It worked fine, good picture but after just 18 months the main video board went out. I would guess this is a big problem since most every where I looked the board was out of stock. Just trashed it.

Is there a way to make the LG Plus iPhone app turn on the tv?

Asked by: tvbv
Hello, since the TV is being operated via Wi-Fi and not an IR Blaster, the TV can not be turned on since the phone can not obtain connection prior to the TV being turned on. ^AC

HOw can i transfer audio from tv to speaker. Tv does not have audio out other than optical.

Asked by: Bsolis
Since the TV only has Optical out, you may have to run the audio from the primary source, set top box, to your surround sound. ^AC
