Good TV but picture only lasted a little over a year!!
17 April 2015
Summary: I've been very pleased with this TV which I bought in January of 2014 however just over a year later the picture has gone. Don't buy this TV without purchasing the protection. I'm waiting now to see what SquareTrade is going to do and how cumbersome it's going to be to replace it or if they will.
Summary: I have a14 month old Lg 47LN5700 lost its picture. Sound and everything works. LED backlight not working. I am reading similar stories on this. Ive tried t con an power boards. I see tv for a second powering on and off. I am now leaning towards the main board.
Summary: Complete waste of money. The idea of buying this was great. Nice TV for the bedroom, not too big but wireless for Netflix etc. it turns out that there is an LG TV glitch. It started turning on and off continuously for no reason.

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.
Summary: I got this TV last year and TV screen stopped working. LG support says that LCD panel has to be replaced, which costs as much as new TV costs. They said it is rare, but possible that panel gets damaged in their models.
Summary: This TV began having problems only 1 month after purchase. It flashes power off and on. We had zero luck talking to an LG representative so I began to troubleshoot it myself and even bought a new power cord. No luck though. Still flashes off and on repeatedly.

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...
Summary: Nice TV - But beware of LG Data Collection (or "spying" - depending on your point of view)! Can't add much to the other reviews regarding the picture/build quality of the device - it's a nice "smart" TV, although I have noticed the apps come and go at LG's whim - but here's the scary part: LG...
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.
