Not Worth The Money

K. Courtney, Amazon

  • Summary: I selected this "smart" television over similar and cheaper models based primarily on its integrated web browser. All smart television manufacturers have a suite of apps, some better than others but an included web browser is fairly unique and I was hoping for the ability to stream video from sites such as ESPN3 and Hulu. HUGE MISTAKE! The web browser only supports Flash 8 and all current streaming web sites require at least Flash 10.

Power issues are the main one. Secondary are outdated apps

  • Summary: First off I have to say that this tv has a really amazing picture. It is crystal clear(when it works). I love this tv because of that alone. I hate the though because it is fussy. Since we got it, it has had a few issues turning on and staying on. It will randomly just turn off. Good thing though is it would only do this occasionally and start working again in a few minutes. These last two days it has been flickering the "on" status led twice and then nothing!

Started out well but ended up returning....

  • Summary: Received LG TV from Amazon with no issues in regards to packaging nor delivery date. Peripheral connections instructions were not documented well but did figure out. Picture was great, sound was just okay through TV (as we use separate speakers,not an issue). However, we were unable to keep the TV turned OFF! TV would power itself back on and finally, had to unplug TV to keep off.

Smart tv?? I don't think so

Jay T, Amazon

  • Summary: Purchased this TV based on the list of features and reviews I read. The picture quality is very good, however, this is not a real smart TV. First, you cannot log in to your youtube account using the youtube app. Clicking on this app leads you to the website and you can browse movies, but you cannot log in to your own account and watch your own movies or other private videos sent to you by friends. So this app is useless for me.

Great picture quality, ugly smart TV interface, broken DLNA support

  • Summary: Great: The picture quality is amazing. The viewing angle exceeds the size of the living room. Some people complained about seeing gray squares from the back light sections, but I couldn't really tell. Sound quality from the TV is better than expected. It's not real loud, but is good enough for TV shows. The magic wand remote is super simple and sure beats a stick full of buttons. I would almost keep the TV just for the remote.
