Pretty TV

Steven F., Newegg
19 August 2014
  • Summary: It would've been nice to know about the USB drive limitations before purchasing the TV, and the A.mazon issues are a bit annoying, but overall we've still been very happy with this TV.
  • Pros: Screen quality is great Low power consumption Panel even looks good when it's turned off Speakers are surprisingly good for what they are Remote functions well Smart TV features are great, short of a few cons listed below
  • Cons: USB functionality - we experienced a lot of stutter when trying to play video from an external USB hard drive. We ended up having to connect the hard drive to our Roku which could handle the video's just fine. When talking to LG support about the issue, they simply said that the TV only supports ...

Nice clear picture

Brian G., Newegg
4 July 2014
  • Summary: For the money this is a nice TV.
  • Pros: Clear picture, VERY light weight, apps are just about best in the business. Has all of the connections that I was looking for and setup was a breeze. One good thing about LG is their apps and software are better than most. Just downloaded all of the firmware updates, jumped about 4 rev's and have...
  • Cons: In regards to the TV, none so far. Shipping was on time and fast, but was concerned with the box showed up beat to heck. Luckily the TV was ok no damage, but man that thing had a rough ride getting here.

Reboot issue Fixed with fan

David B., Newegg
24 June 2014
  • Summary: I have a different model than this one here but the had the same restarting loop happening. After the fan installed it stopped. Been at least 7 months now-- no problem.
  • Pros: Fairly nice picture
  • Cons: Reboots from chip inside not having enough ventilation. I installed a USB powered fan over the chip which on my model as right inside the cabinet and above the RCA jacks. Drilled a pattern of small holes to vent the fan air pulling the heat outward. TV hasn't rebooted since.

Worst Customer Service for broken TV

Heather Jackson, Amazon
25 April 2014
  • Summary: The TV has begun to glitch, it turns itself on and off constantly and I cannot find a fix. I understand TVs have problems but the low rating here is due to the customer service of LG.

Worked Great, for 6 months

Roger N., Newegg
12 March 2014
  • Summary: The product is nice, must have a faulty power supply or even programming error.
  • Pros: Crisp Clear picture. Apps: Netflix app, on this TV, is one of the best apps for netflix I have ever had on any device. Instant load, never an issue.
  • Cons: After about the 3rd/4th update, my TV now does this thing where it decides to continually reboot. I turn on the tv, start watching something (if i get this far) and then it shuts down, turns on, shuts down, turns on....Repeatedly for approx. 3-5 minutes. Sometimes it recovers, sometimes it doesnt...
