Summary: This TV seem like a wonderful option when I purchased it in August of 2013, I had a house fire and had to replace all of my electronics so when I found this smart TV in my price range to replace the damaged one I was beyond excited. It has proven to be nothing but a nuisance and frustration.

Summary: I was going to change star rating significantly because about eight months into my purchase, the screen started loosing picture and sometimes flickered as though aliens were interfering with its reception. I don't know, the problem may be blown capacitors. I have decided to take a swing at repairing it myself because it would cost too much to ship from Bahamas to USA. The warranty is up in December and I haven't been able to get to a rep.

Summary: it should have come with the LG Electronics AN-MR400 Magic Motion Remote that I paid an extra $80 or so for. I'm still learning how to use the TV but things I don't like (or maybe don't understand yet) is I can't switch inputs without going into the smart menu which I can only get out of by changing input or click back or exit. there should be an input button on the remote that just cycles through the connected devices. if it's there, I can't find it on either remote.
Summary: 1st LG ever and it was great until it wasn't. Turned the TV off one night and it died. LG was very responsive when I called them on a Saturday and sent a tech out THAT day. Problem is that he couldn't fix it and when he called in for additional support, there was no response. 1 part was ordered and did not solve the problem. A new part has been ordered and we'll see if that works. The TV was manufactured in January 2014.
Summary: I'm not a video geek. I can't speak to minor display artifacts and such. And I'm switching from a 27" CRT stereo TV to this flat-screen, HDTV with much bigger display. Generally, I find the viewing experience to be pleasant, the picture clear, the sound quite adequate. I feed my DVR, DVD player, and Wii in the various ports and I imagine that with a Smart TV and video streaming available, I'll never buy a Blu-Ray player.
Summary: This is my first HD tv. I was replacing an older analog tv, and wanted great value for the money and I got that. There is a bit of an issue hooking up an older receiver, but that can be solved with an adapter. Excellent picture, easy to use, lots of features.
LOVE this model LG .... BUT WHAT IS WITH THE PRICE INCREASE???
7 March 2014
Summary: I have this model TV in the 60 inch and LOVE IT!! I wanted to buy the same model (LN5700 Smart TV) in the 39". The price - just last week (2/26/14) - was $474.36 and this week has gone up to $529.00 - a 10% March price markup. I guess I will now have to buy a different brand. I just can't make myself pay an extra $54 when I KNOW this TV was sold at the lower price just last week.
