Great but underpowered for video playback

Paul M., Amazon
27 December 2014
  • Summary: Great TV but had to mark it down primarily for its lack of processing power for digital source playback. My Samsung TVs don't seem to have any trouble with home video playback through Plex but the LG seems to stop and freeze throughout the video.

Good value, good quality

Keith Harris, Amazon
15 September 2014
  • Summary: Good value, good quality, I'm happy with this TV. Only reason for 4 and not 5 star is the remote is among the worst remotes ever designed. Doesn't fit well in my hand so I use the cable remote primarily.

Great Smart Features

rmretired, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
13 April 2014
  • Summary: I researched Smart TV's for over a year, before buying my LG 42LS5700. Eary Smart TV's were difficult to use and many had limited features. The Best Buy salesperson steered me to the LG and I am very happy with the multiple easy to use features of the unit. LG doesn't advertise as much as some other brands and after using my LG for several months I am absolutely satisfied.
  • Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality

good tv

Bryan Campbell, Amazon
30 January 2014
  • Summary: I love this TV for the most part. The picture is great if the true motion feature is off. The processor is a little slow to me, it takes to long to pull up the input selection or the home screen. The magic remote got old pretty quick. I would prefer a remote that had a qwerty keyboard on it with more buttons for input selection and commonly used functions. I was amazed that I could just plug my external hard drive into the usb port and play movies.

Great TV in every way

JonnyJr., LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
4 January 2014
  • Summary: My first flat screen and smart tv and I like it VERY much. Easy to set up and great picture to start off with. Sound is hands down better than anything else in the showroom that I listened to. Smart features make Tv time much more interesting--watching movies on youtube for one example. Netflix movies load in seconds. I consider myself lucky I checked out LG before I bought another major brand!

Broke at 13 months

Jessica, Amazon
31 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought this TV on sale Nov 23, 2012. It was covered by a 1 year warranty. The darn them broke at 13 months! What a crappily manufactured product. The screen goes black, but the sound still works. It happens on cable or DVD. If you turn the TV off and back on again the picture will come back, but the same problem happens again after 5-45 minutes. I will never buy an LG product again.

Sweet Tv

Red, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
27 October 2013
  • Summary: Love this Tv I have only had it a little over a month and it blew all my expectations out of the water.I would recommend it to a friend. With the 120hz refresh rate it is a super clear picture and has way more features than I expected . Also, streaming Netflix & Hulu is so easy. Other than that the Tv is very streamlined in design . So it doesn't take up much space.
  • Pros: Style/Design, easy to use, Quality
