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.
Summary: I purchased this set early dec 2011. The set performed as I expected but, two months later it would not power on. I submited a waranty claim and found out that there is a problem with the set's power board. The third party repair company, which LG is having perform the waranty repair, informed me that LG knows of the problem and has pulled their power board part from the waranty repair inventory to rework there factory finished tv's.
Summary: fair warning, i'm a bit upset with this tv right now. i bought this on black friday from amazon (11/24/11) and have had nothing but good, meh... okay, things to say about it. first the good: it has plenty of ports to connect anything i would want to. the audio out works great with my speakers. great detail for gaming. here's the bad: today (2/3/12) my tv has stopped working.
