Summary: It's going on 2 years for this TV. I guess that is the new lifetime of these products. I had a good picture, it was fairly nice. But a TV that lasts two years? Call me paranoid but that's got to be some kind of built in obsolescence chip.
Summary: I thought I'd give LG a shot--the picture looked good, so did the styling and being able to add wireless streaming with the dongle was nice (but it should be built in). The controller board just blew up during the London Olympics and I haven't even had the thing two years and out of warranty of course. Cost $450 to repair so get the Square Trade 3-year warranty, it's worth it. The repairman said to get Panasonic, Samsung or Sharp.
Summary: The first order came in with a broken screen - did not seem like there was sufficient padding in the box to protect it. The return was flawless and I commend Amazon for their easy procedure. The second order came in undamaged but I have never been able to get this TV to wi-fi connect with my router - it will not recognize the router.
Great TV, but customer service is not happening at LG

Summary: My husband bought our first flat screen TV for me for my birthday. I'm a big TV addict, and had been waiting for tru2way to be implemented before buying a new set, but it looks like the next big bang isn't tru2way, it's internet TV. So, finally, my wonderful husband took the plunge and bought this TV for me. Excited, we took it out of the box, and started to assemble the stand.
