Summary: After 9 months, this TV refused to turn on. Per LG and their contracted repair service, the soonest a repair technician can come is in 7 days. LG knows about this problem. Their customer support told me they've had an "alert" on this model. And the repair technician told me they're very familiar with it. But neither LG nor the retailer warns potential buyers. My TV experienced this problem while in warranty, but others may not be so lucky.
Summary: Don't bother. The value and picture are great, but why purchase a TV that fails to turn on after 3 months of light use? It has also taken LG 2+ weeks to repair the thing. Waste of time and money, will never buy an LG product ever again.
