  • Summary: No explanation or papers to explain how to use the Smart tv! If you already know how to do everything on a Smart TV then this is the one for you!
  • Cons: Difficult To Use

  • Summary: I bought this tv because I wanted to get rid of cable.i saw that this tv said it had internet browser in it. It does, but it doesnt support flash player, so you are limited to what shows you can stream.its cool that it has youtube,and a bunch of other apps built in, but don't be fooled by the internet browser thing if you want to use it to get rid of cable. You can just get a roku box and it does the same thing as this tv.

Decent Features, but Double Fail

Cody Steele, Amazon
28 February 2014
  • Summary: We purchased two of these . The first arrived in good condition and the very minor scratches on it which made it a discounted item were worth the $120 savings from Amazon's Warehouse Deals. We set it up, but a few days later it started to turn off on its own and would turn right back on. The next day it wouldn't even turn on and the red power indicator on the bottom just flickered like a dim candle rather than a steady glow.

Great Picture; Affordable Price

  • Summary: Our Plasma set died, so after a search, we bought this set based on clarity of picture, price (about one-fourth the cost of our plasma set and size. It fit our entertainment cabinet. We have the set in a large room, but it is clearly viewed by everyone watching. I like the ability to access the internet sources of programing like Netflix and Amazon. I can easily move into and out of these menus. I am highly disappointed in the sound.
  • Pros: Style/Design

Decent TV

dhyard, Amazon

  • Summary: Very nice color, excellent skin tones, the blacks are not very good though. The main problem is motion blur, when watching sports, a lot of the action is blurred and pixelated. Definitly not a 120 hz tv, as I have a couple Samsungs with 120hz and there is no motion blur. I noticed consumer reports complained about the same thing. This doesn't happen on all programming, on some things it wasn't noticeable, so it may or may not bother you.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION I MISSED....

TMI "tmi_darktower", Amazon
30 October 2013
  • Summary: I own a Roku and have Direct TV. I purchased this LG Smart TV to watch videos from the internet. I thought I could browse the web and watch whatever I wanted as long as I had the correct subscriptions (HBO Go, etc). I missed a very important piece of information. This TV does not/can not access content that requires Flash. I contacted LG and they have no information as to if/when they will have Flash available.

Would be great if it would hookup to wifi consistently

Jason Tan, Amazon
23 October 2013
  • Summary: This TV is pretty awesome. The only problem is that it is very inconsistent in hooking up to the internet which can be super frustrating. Last night I had to spend 15 minutes turning it on and off before it would hook up to the wifi. All my other devices hook up instantaneously which makes it even more frustrating. Chatted with LG support this morning and they suggested checking to make sure the software is up to date and maybe doing a hard reset. We'll see.

Many Complaints of Defective TVs

Karen Long, Amazon
14 September 2013
  • Summary: After a month or so, this TV began randomly shutting off and turning back on. After conducting a web search, I was surprised to see how common this issue is with LG TVs. I am now in the process of dealing with customer service on getting it repaired. For a purchase price of almost 700 bucks, I do not need this headache! Aside from that issue, I love the picture quality and features of the TV.
