Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture!! We bought this 65 “ Super HD TV - we cannot get over the details and the color of the screen on all the stations. We had been waiting to purchase a new TV. After research we decided that LG was the best choice of all the other companies out there. We love the slim line Base. We also purchased the LG sound Bar. Great addition also
