... this set - so far it is probably the best TV I've ever had

J. Bowser, Amazon
6 August 2014
  • Summary: I have nothing negative to say about this set - so far it is probably the best TV I've ever had. This replaced an RCA F33810 38" tube-type HDTV and this has just as good a picture as the tube and runs a whole lot cooler.

HDMI outputs all went bad

Westbayou "Westbayou", Amazon
17 December 2013
  • Summary: After owning this TV for 2 years, I felt like I should review it following the issues I've had. Picture is still great, but at a little over a year, I suddenly received a "No Signal" message and a blank screen. I assumed either the DirecTV box or the HDMI cable had gone bad.

backlighting bleeds through

Conner C. Mullally "mcmullett", Amazon
19 July 2013
  • Summary: Backlighting bleeds through, wipes out lower left quadrant of screen when sceen is dark. Renders the screen effectively unwatchable when dark colors are on screen. To make matters worse, neither LG or the company providing the extra coverage I purchased are willing to fix the problem.

Good for the price I got it for back when....

Scott Cho "SwooP", Amazon
16 January 2013
  • Summary: TV in use for over a year with no issues. Black levels are huge concern for LG sets. The set is extremely thin and have not seen too many which matched it at the time. This TV is probably out of date now but it had a great remote and worked. Recommended.

Great TV for the price

Jake L., Newegg
7 July 2012
  • Summary: My wife and I were looking for a new TV and his one stood out. We've very happy with it after almost a year of use. It's never been hooked up to cable or any provider service. We use the PS3 and Wii for Netflix and Hulu plus as well as games. I also stream from my PC.
  • Pros: Great picture, light and just simply looks great. Menu is a breeze to use and has many options. Plenty of connections on the back.
  • Cons: Doesn't have Wifi like a lot of TVs do now. Not a problem for me since I use my PS3 as a media center on this TV. Have a random issue with the optical audio out to a sound bar ( I run HDMI from PS3 to TV then sound out of TV to soundbar). Not sure if it's the TV or the bars issue but sometimes ha...

Nice!

Abel, Amazon
21 April 2012
  • Summary: TV looks great, good picture and decent sound from built in speakers. Connected auxiliary speakers and sub woofer via headphone jack but can not use audio controls when outputting to headphone jack. Will need to use the Digital Audio Out (Optical).

Life is good with this LG TV so far

scutpuppy, Amazon
18 March 2012
  • Summary: I got this TV for about 1 wk now and am very happy with it. Pictures are very crisp and clear without any blurring problem with watching the NCAA tournament games all week. The sound is very adequate for watching TV despite other people's complaint about it.

Nice TV

Marianne M., Newegg
15 March 2012
  • Summary: Noticed that this model sold out shortly after placing my order, I'm so glad I didn't procastinate on buying it or I would have surely missed the boat!
  • Pros: Easy set up, user friendly,crisp picture. Quality brand at an affordable price. After a lot of shopping around Newegg had the best deal. Living in a rural area it was a bonus with free shipping not having to spend $$ on gas driving 50 miles to the nearest electronics store.
  • Cons: A bit of a concern that the shipping box arrived with two distinct boot prints on it. Where or when somebody decided to walk across the box, who knows, but it didn't seem to affect the contents,thankfully! A word to the wise, check your shipment CAREFULLY before accepting delivery. I know we will...

Excellent television

Mr. D., Newegg
12 March 2012
  • Summary: This is our first HDTV and I have to say I'm incredibly happy with the purchase -- and glad that I waited until quality LEDs got into the $600 range. Picture quality is excellent -- we had no ghosting or trailing while watching golf this weekend.
  • Pros: Easy set up. Lightweight. Outstanding picture quality.
  • Cons: None yet
