Beautiful TV

Troy, Amazon

  • Summary: Had this TV for lil over 2yrs now and had no problems ,excellent picture quality and sound which is consistent with most LG brands. I would have given it 5 stars if it was really " wifi ready " without having to buy this LG wifi adapter . Next time LG should be upfront and say that was the case .

  • Summary: Coming from a 25 year old, 800 pound tube TV, anything would look spectacular. After a lot of research, I decided to go with an LG LED and found a good price on Amazon. First, the television - well worth the money.

  • Summary: One bad pixel. Very inconvenient return policy (send repairs to manufacture). Separate wifi dongle req'd. Wireless connection the worst in the house (Roku and Sony dvd located imediately close by). Skip the internet capability if you have another option. Beautiful set. Intuitive setup/operation.

Great Picture

  • Summary: Great picture ,easy to set up ,just the right size for my room .I connected to internet via cable as wireless connection requires additional equipment. The only thing to note ....I have Bell South lite internet connection (700MBS) too slow to stream movies.

Very satisfied

  • Summary: My wife and I are both very happy with the TV. We use it with digital cable (no box, using the built-in tuner/decoder), Apple TV, XBox 360, and the built-in Netflix app. The performance, picture, ease of use, setup; they're all good. The UI in particular is above average for TVs.

Great picture quality, but not perfect

Martin V., Newegg
2 January 2011
  • Summary: overall very happy with it...the lack of PIP shocks me...I've had PIP with my TV's for over 15 yrs going back to my old CRT models. My old westinghouse 37" LCD has great PIP. Why did they leave this out on this awesome LG model? I did not know this when I bought it....assumed ALL tv's had it.
  • Pros: Awesome picture, easy set up, very bright, decent connections (4 HDMI, 3 component, etc)...easy to reach connectors
  • Cons: No analog audio out, NO PICTURE IN PICTURE???? When I hook up my computer with HDMI, the picture is blurry...but this is apparently very common with TV's (same on my brother's sharp)....when connected to VGA it's very sharp. However, there is no way to get audio to work with VGA. I had to use an ...

Very satisified

  • Summary: I looked at a bunch of LED TVs but finally settled on this model and I am very happy with it. The picture quality is very good and I'm sure would be even better if I took the time to properly calibrate it. The design of the TV is also very nice.

Great TV, sound sucks.

jbw, Amazon
17 December 2010
  • Summary: Had for almost a week and it has been pretty awesome. The picture is great, the plethora of inputs is nice, but the sound quality of the on board speakers is awful. If you buy this TV plan on getting some sort of surround or aftermarket sound system.

Great for non-techies like me

Andrew K., Newegg
27 September 2010
  • Pros: Very easy to set up and use. Picture Wizard walks you through getting your preferred picture quality. Can auto-detect aspect ratio from TV/input signal and adjust picture accordingly. Bright, vivid picture; colors really pop. Sound quality is surprisingly good, especially after setting audio to "...
  • Cons: Wi-fi capable, but not built in - needs extra hardware to connect. No local dimming. According to manual, dynamic contrast ratio is 3,000,000:1 (not 4,000,000:1 as listed in Newegg's description, though you probably need eagle eyes to tell the difference). Almost TOO light for a stand; I have it ...
