  • Summary: Great TV.
  • Pros: Great picture. Many options to adjust settup. TV performed software upgrade flawlessly, once it was on the network.
  • Cons: Stand is flimsy. TV tilts to the right a bit. You'd be better with a wall mount. LG wireless USB adaptor did not detect my WI-Fi network (signal was too weak) although I have an awesome wireless N router and my laptop got a strong signal next to the TV. Ended up hardwiring it to the home network ...

Loving this TV

Anonymous, Newegg
28 December 2010
  • Summary: This is my first LG television. My other two TVs are Samsung (one LCD 1080p and one DLP 720p). I'd buy this one again without question.
  • Pros: I had been holding out for a good price on a slim-depth LED LCD television for the master bedroom. At $799, this one is more than I expected. Love the applications that are built-in. I use Netflix and Vudu streaming the most. Have the TV connected to my home network via powerline adapter. The pic...
  • Cons: I had it sitting on the stand at first which left the panel a bit wobbly and slightly off-level... not a problem for me as I have since wall-mounted it. Second, the data port and all but one HDMI port come straight out the back of the panel making the flushest of mounts impossible. Again, not a p...

  • Summary: Web app interface could use improvement. For example, if you are watching a Netflix movie and want to set the sleep timer, you have to exit out of the movie, set the timer, restart netflix, find your movie, and play it. Otherwise, a great TV.

LG (Life is Good)

Scott W., Newegg

  • Summary: Its an excellent tv with great features
  • Pros: 1- HD on this tv is top notch, blacks and other colors are really vivid. 2 - Play most SD brodcast without any problems 3 - Got this tv back in Nov. when Newegg had a too good of deal to pass up
  • Cons: 1 - The top left side of tv has slight damage to it, a little white line, (not noticeable from the front and not significant enough for me to return it) 2 - on some SD brodcast but not all, theres what seem to be little white line going across the very top of the picture, but its actually the led...

  • Summary: I've managed to get it so that the picture is only 4 or 5 pixels from the bezel with Cinematic Zoom mode, but I don't think that was its purpose. Was really hoping it was native 120hz, but most of us know better. Never hurts to hope though :P
  • Pros: Stunning quality, love the intelligent sensor since I sit right next to a window. I'm using this as my computer monitor and it handles the bloom in games very well. Updated firmware as soon as it first started from ethernet.
  • Cons: Don't know if this is feature or whatnot, but the picture is quite far from the edge in 16:9 mode. Sound quality could be much better, but I generally use my wireless headphones anyway. Wireless chips are really cheap, it should've come with the TV.

Very nice TV

  • Pros: Fast service from NewEgg. The TV is good with all of the features.
  • Cons: There are 2 things need to be consider on this TV. 1) The USB wireless has to be LG. 2) There is only optical out for sound.

  • Summary: Even it is inconvenient, but i personally still consider newegg as my favorate place to do shopping. The customer serivce is friendly and effective, didn't give me any trouble. So in the end, hope for the best luck on the new TV
  • Pros: The TV is alright, i brought it when the price was 800, with all those features there really is nothing more to ask for. bought it on oct 20th, arrived on the next day. good for newegg.
  • Cons: This is my first newegg RMA, it was a DOA, the TV's screen was damaged, not broken but have dead pixel spot on it. its not newegg's fault, i guess i just outta luck. so its still in the process

  • Pros: Just got the TV in today, the shipment was quite fast (I live in Queens, NY) and the packaging was perfect; not hits or bent edges on the box so good job on UPS' part. So now onto the tv, the TV is great the colors are spot on and for 799 you cannot go wrong. About 2 years ago I purchase a Samsun...
  • Cons: The stand is a little loose, I'd best suggest a wall mount. Also the speakers were alittle weak so maybe a sound bar should do the job.
