Very nice

Seth B., Newegg
14 November 2011
  • Pros: Beautiful picture! As for the sound issue brought up by other people, I don't use the TV speakers. Much better looking than my 32" LG which was only 60Hz.
  • Cons: none that I can find

Go with Newegg!

Jared H., Newegg
9 November 2011
  • Summary: I purchased the 5 year warranty from newegg. Incredible deal when compared to other local retail stores. I hate sounding like a newegg homer but, honestly I not sure why anyone would purchase electronics anywhere else.
  • Pros: Beautiful picture, great sounds, and ton of features! Got a wonderful deal from Newegg for being a subscriber. Shipped quickly and arrived in good shape. Easy assembly and setup. Worth every penny! Very happy so far.
  • Cons: None as of yet.

State of the art for a fraction of the price

Abraham L., Newegg
4 November 2011
  • Summary: Loving the deal I got on this after the promo code and half off extended warranty.
  • Pros: Bright vivid colors, Bluray home videos look surreal. Free android app is fun to play with the TV with your phone. I ordered a wireless keyboard and mouse, crossing my fingers to see if they work with it. Divx movies will stream straight off usb devices which is nice.
  • Cons: Sound isnt the best but who uses the stock sound these days anyways. Internet browsing isnt what you would think, no flash video capability makes it good for browsing basic sites.

Great TV, great price

Anonymous, Newegg
23 October 2011
  • Summary: Wishing now I had purchased the 47" model.
  • Pros: Where to start... Huge, sharp, crisp picture, 120HZ, Wifi USB dongle included, Netflix and MLB.TV apps work somewhat flawlessly (better after latest updates). This is my first LCD TV and I had actually been researching this model since the summer but never pulled the trigger due to the pricetag. ...
  • Cons: Haven't researched too much but wish there was a way to use a USB QWERTY keyboard with the TV. Not sure if LG makes one but using the remote with no predictive text is tedious although not big deal at all. OOTB, menus are sluggish and unresponsive @ times. Firmware and app updates make a world of...

Good TV, Good Price

Peter M., Newegg
18 October 2011
  • Pros: To my eye, the picture quality is fantastic. The unit itself looks sharp hanging on my wall. The remote control is intuitive to use. I enjoy the connectivity to youtube and other widgets, although I don't imagine that I will use them much. I found setup to be easy.
  • Cons: Note that for DVDs and movies you need to turn off TruMotion. If you don't, movies have this strange "soap-opera" effect that makes movies look like they were recorded with a cheap video camera. The manual does not explain that this is necessary.

Works great with Win7

Patrck M., Newegg
22 September 2011
  • Summary: First off, we caught these with a promo code, so we got a great deal from Newegg! We bought two of these for use as showroom type displays. We're using the Play To feature of WMP to push video files over wifi to the TVs.
  • Pros: Wifi works well Clear, sharp picture Lightweight Lockable inputs Power on/power off timing
  • Cons: Interface slow out of the box, but better after updating TV goes to sleep while playing from DLNA or PLEX server
