The USB drive does not support external hard drives
7 May 2013
Summary: I bought this TV in order to hook my external harddrive up and watch movies and shows.. as apposed to my normal HDMI to computer. (I wanted to free up my computer a bit so I could work and watch movies etc.) Sadly after many calls to LG and Amazon no one could figure out the problem and I just ended up sending the TV back. LGs customer servers is 5/5 and so is amazons. I know that make good products... this one sadly just did not do what I thought it did.
Summary: The TV is a good quality tv. I give it3 stars because this TV is not good if u want to have an audio output such as surround sound or even hook up a headset to it. Also tv comes with a USB port but that is only good for photos and music and doesnt allow you to watch videos from an external hard drive and as a deployed soldier this TV will do you NO good because as you know we all have movies on an external hard drive.
Summary: I was in the market for a big screen TV and found this model very affordable. The only drawback is that it doesn't have enough output jacks so I can hook up my surround sound system and had to run it through the game console. This upset me as it was my understanding I would have enough jacks for gaming console, DVD player and surround sound being that it was a much newer model. Otherwise, I love the TV.
